Weekend Goodness

I'm not sure how but it turns out I have a very busy weekend. It's kind of nice, really.

  • Friday: Chronicles of Riddick. Vin Deisel goodness.
  • Saturday: Heirs to the Fall, a modern day vamp LARP set in a club. I may have to do some clothes shopping for it. I've got some semi-gothy clothing but nothing spectacular.
  • Sunday: A scene for Crimson Dawn with sylvan then dinner with sage_deer.


  • It sounds like an acceptable weekend to me. Somewhere in there, I have some writing I want to do. But, the ProcrastinaTOR within may exert her powers over me (as usual).

    The Chronicles of Riddick (No spoilers)

    Wow. What can I say? Wow. This has got to be one of the most wonderfully bad (in the realm of Army of Darkness but in a sci-fi way bad) movies I have seen in a long time. I went in with low expectations and I was not disappointed.

    Thoughts...
    1. This is not a movie that takes itself seriously at all. Though, one actress attempts to and fails.
    2. This is a movie clearly made by a gamer for other gamers and sci-fi geeks.
    3. Popcorn. Stop at the back of the eyes popcorn. Eye candy, too.
    4. Logic? Forget it.
    5. Action! Lots and lots of action.
    6. Scenery. Lots and lots of scenery.

    I must own this movie if only to hear Vin's commentary on it and to see the director's cut.
