wow...pitch black...I'm surprised he didn't win an Oscar for that one....Jtek said:i dont mind when people Rag on FAF, but when they start dissing on Vin Deisel...it gets serious! Im going to knock some teeth out. Have you seen him in Pitch Black? ...ya, thats right, Shuddup.
Now THAT's funny! F & F had so much homoerotic subtext, it was worthy of feminist college study.WRXin' said:My friend emailed me this pic. It's pretty funny...
obviously you can make any movie sound ridiculous...Timdog1650 said:Yes it is....basically, land on a planet where it's never night...he's a psychokiller, the rest of the crew just "happened" to be like colonists or something. They go looking for civilization..blah blah blah, evil aliens, Vin Diesel saves the day, yadda yadda yadda. I have to say though that at least in that movie he didn't seem like such a tool. In FAF, he made himself look retarded by not knowing what a real auto enthusiast was all about (aka, NoS is everything...yeah right)
WR Xilr8 said:In Pitch Black a normal passenger plane (ship in that time) is hit by something and has to crash land. Vin was a prisoner that was aboard that ship being transported by a bounty hunter. They crash and try to find shelter, water, etc. They find a small village that was deserted. It's never got dark because of the multiple suns. Once every, alot of years, the suns align behind the moon and it gets dark for a year (I think). When it gets dark, thousands of these creatures come out to kill the remaining crew who crashed. Vin can see it the dark because he had his eyes glazed while in jail. And he kicks some serious a-- while saving the day.
WOOOOOOOOOOOW... for all you people that missed the point of Pitch Black, allow me to make a fool of you...
Pitch Black was more than just an Aliens rip off and showing off Vin's badassness. You people obviously only seen it once, judged it and missed the underlying subtext (for those non-film literate, subtext is the theme or purpose, direction of the story). Pitch Black is about a two characters who struggle throughout the story. One is the woman captain, Caroline. She ditches 40 passengers in order to save her own ass in the beginning...and she struggles to grasp a sense of leadership and responsiblity towards the end. The other is Vin Deisel's character, Riddick. His character develops much like Caroline's but in a different manner. At first he cares not for anyone else but himself, but through the existing crew's compassion he grows into a more human character than when he started. The night-dwelling aliens were only part of the story but wasnt the main beef. The movie was about the people.
And from a Cinematic point of view...the crash scene was one of the most well done. Also, most of the movie's shots followed the 3/4 positioning formula.
Pitch Black also used light as a life giving stipulation, which IMHO was a very imaginative and original idea. This concept dives deeper into the idea that "light gives life".
And does an oscar determine what a good actor is? I know numerous actors/actresses that have done a good job who dont have oscars.
