To celebrate the release of Riddick and the start of the fall movie season, the Jasons tackle the Riddick "trilogy" of movies from Vin Diesel and David Twohy. They discuss the bizarre path of this character and franchise, FarScape, the late 90s, The Chronicles of Riddick's staggering badness, the "Chosen One" mythos (aka the Story of Moses), Mortal Kombat: Annihilation flashbacks, low budget sci-fi knockoffs, Jason Voorhees + Luke Skywalker = Riddick, Riddick's return to the wild, The Fast & The Furious, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Riddick as Superman, and more!
A year ago today, we released the above episode. Today, for our annual Sci-Fi-Tember celebrations, we felt it important to rerelease it... to remind everyone that the Riddick movies have a 2-for-3 batting average, and that isn't so bad to have.
