Simple question, are they any good?

I've heard mixed feeling about both of them, and I am currently short on time to watch both 2h+ long movies to find out.

oh and, same for Event Horizon, but I've heard mostly crap comments about it. Dunno, plotline\idea seems interesting to me, but I am not sure about the movie since I haven't seen it.

Loved Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick was good but didn't really work as a sequel

Like them both, watched them both again recently, and my opinion hasn't changed. Both good films, but good is as far as I'd go!

[edit]

Seen both of them today...

Pitch Black was great, sequel was bit... dunno. weird. It was ok, entertaining but it felt more like stand alone movie then a sequel. It's setting is totally different from Pitch Black and aside from Riddick, there's nothing connecting those two movies. (if we forget about those Arab guy and that boy\girl from first movie, who seems to be thrown there randomly)

Change in Riddick's personality also seemed out of place in sequel. In Pitch Black he acted like what they called him (murderer, convict, blah blah with warped sense of moral and honor) but in sequel he's more of an hero-model.

Pitch Black was definitively way better.

Like I said CoR didn't work as a sequel, it was one of those movies that was probably written originally as something else but then adapted to be a sequel, much like the last few hellraiser DtV films

I thought of a same thing. It also seem to me like it was written before, but since Pitch Black was success, they just throw in Riddick. I would work like better as stand alone movie.

and Pitch Black was more like straight SF movie, while CoR felt more like SF Fantasy.
