Are Pitch Black and Chron of Riddick 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.

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.

I've spent my entire life pretending I'm not one....

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