ok, so Chronicles of Riddick is a terrible movie, but the sheer AESTHETIC

this has been out for almost twenty years and I’m just now getting around to watching it???? ME, who loves ridiculous space opera more than any other person I know???

Anyway, have some aesthetic:

image

They use melee weapons in space, which is a trope you can pry away from my cold, dead hands. 

image

The bad guys are so fucking fabulous I neither know nor care what their actual motive is (something about necromancy and soul stealing and religious fanaticism, I think. Maybe.). They have this space goth, black and gold future medieval aesthetic. I would join them just for the outfits.

image

The landscape looks like THIS. THIS IS HOW YOU DESIGN A WEIRD ASS SCI FI PLANET. ARE YOU LISTENING, EVERY SCI FI MOVIE EVER BESIDES AVATAR I GUESS?

Fuck your desert planets and forest planets and ice planets, give me more rock formations of DEATH with lava and some weird magnet shit going on in the sky.

image

Alexa Davalos is stunning and badass in this, and gets some gratuitously unrealistic fight scenes I wasn’t even mad about.

image

She also gets a goth costume change.

image

Have I mentioned they sword/knife/whatever-the-hell-that-giant-thing-Karl- Urban-was-holding fight???

image

I cannot for the life of me remember this dude’s name, but YES he is wearing what looks like the back of a human ribcage on his head. I told you these bad guys were extra af.

image

Judi Dench is in this also, looking stately and ethereal, and she’s this alien (?) that can shapeshift into wind or something. 

image

THANDIE MOTHERFUCKING NEWTON is in this, as, idk, the queen of the space goths or something. She’s dramatically evil, spends the entire plot chewing on the scenery, and, honestly, she’s the best part of the movie.

image

Her outfits, you guys. Padme Amidala could never.

image

Emo Karl Urban is here too. This is the most attracted I’ve ever been to him, and that includes Lord of the Rings.

image

What was the plot of this movie? Fuck if I know. All I know is it’s god-awful, and you should watch it RIGHT NOW.

Empire by  Wadim Kashin

I told you guys he could full environments. Here we see a nice blend between old architecture and new influences. When we start building moonbases I hope they look like this one. Not all those boring straight lines. Hashtag real building have curves. Also it doesn’t look out of place either, does it? Only thing I am wondering is whether it’s a space casino, palace or space station??? Whatever it is I like the looks of it.

Fao-ish military units often support at least one Wraith. Trained in short range warp hopping technology, they are often employed first in a military operations, mainly to scare enemy troops. It’s hard to kill something that disappears when you aim at it.

A group of soldiers in training are forced to fend off a global invasion. Another group of soldiers go on a mission to destroy a mineral deposit that threatens the survival of humanity.

The effects were of a high quality in these mini-series as one would expect since they both needed to be consistent with the graphics quality in the games. The acting also held up generally ok with a few of the main characters giving strong performances and developing their characters through expression where it seems the script may have been lacking.

The characters in Forward Unto Dawn almost become irrelevant as soon as Master Chief arrives. We follow their story but as soon as the main antagonists show up and a game character is involved, all but one is as good as forgotten. The characters mostly became incidental to the action in the film rather than developing or continuing to be the focus.

The creature design for the main enemy in Unto Dawn, and particularly the swarm creatures from Nightfall were very effective and seemed to move realistically. The pace of Nightfall was a lot better than Dawn because the mission kept the narrative on a clear path and felt more urgent. The structure of the universe between the two films felt consistent even though the two stories weren’t directly linked.

There’s always an issue when soldiers are the protagonists of films because they’re rarely relatable and tend to have comrade banter instead of good dialogue and ‘being a traitor’ can be an entire personality. The action in both mini-series was very repetitive and seemed limited in the kind of drama it was able to produce.

Forward Unto Dawn: 3/10 -This one’s bad but it’s got some good in it, just there-

Nightfall: 3/10 -This one’s bad but it’s got some good in it, just there-

-Canonically, Master Chief is only 15-years-old at the time Unto Dawn takes place.

[Hörbuch] Dystopie einer Jobbeschreibung | Sci Fi Kurzgeschichte | Hörgeschichten

Es ist schon schwer genug als ein Raumschiff im WeltTraum anzutreiben, vor allem wenn man Probleme mit dem Selbstbewusstsein hat. Doch Broinxya, dem Antriebsingenieuer der “Mustardlibelle”, bereiten heute auch noch einige viel zu glückliche Frührentner und die Bürokraten der “Ausgleichenden Ungerechtigkeit” einige Probleme. 

Eine absurde Science Fiction Kurzgeschichte. Geschrieben und gelesen von Hannes Wagner.
Vom Autor: “Vollständige Gerechtigkeit ist ein Ideal, das wir wohl in naher Zukunft nicht erreichen können. Das Prinzip der ausgleichenden Ungerechtigkeit dagegen ist etwas was diesem Ideal am nächsten kommt und auch praktisch umsetzbar ist. Dabei geht es nicht darum alle Ungerechtigkeit auszumerzen, sondern die Ungerechtigkeiten zu verringern und so gleichmäßig zu verteilen, dass jeder ein bisschen Unzufrieden ist…”
“Ich liebe das absurde, mein Schreiben wird bewusst von Autoren wie Philip K. Dick und Terry Pratchett beeinflusst und unbewusst von all dem anderen Zeug das uns tagtäglich umgibt… Danke!”

And here are some close up shots of the individual mausoleums. Once I got started on these I actually really enjoyed them, especially adding the rust effects and details towards the end. My favourite details has to be the opened tomb with the Champion of Averland visible inside, complete with rusted sword and heraldic shield.

It won’t be long before he is up and about, terrorising the province he once used to defend!

Happy Hobbying

Dave
