      One of the great things to come out of DVD marketing in recent years is the the franchise collection, collecting numerous movies in a particular franchise and offering them all in one box at a cheap price. For example we have here the Riddick Trilogy, which provides us Pitch Black, The Chronicles of Riddick and Dark Fury all together for a retail price of $19.

      99 (although I myself purchased my copy for


      only $14.

      99 at Target).

      Individually these movies would easily cost you $50, so it is a great bargain.

      However the title of trilogy here is not entirely accurate, as Dark Fury is not really a full length feature but rather an animated short, coming in at only 35 minutes.

      That said it is still an excellent deal.

      For those unfamiliar with Pitch Black and the ensuing Chronicles of Riddick, the movies ...


      • take us on the adventures of the titular character, Riddick, as he battles in Pitch Black monsters who live in the darkness and in the Chronicles of Riddick a crusading race known as the Necromongers.

        Dark Fury is an intermediary tale trying to bridge the gap between the two movies.

        Pitch Black was a film better than it should have been, one of the few standouts of the science fiction/horror genre.

        The sequel, Chronicles of Riddick is a wannabe science fiction Lord of the Rings with an extremely convoluted mythology and some ridiculous action.

        However it is an enjoyable enough film, if you can look past its many many flaws.

        All told the trilogy as it exists in this franchise collection set is well worth the money, if you are into some good science fiction horror and some beautifully shot but ultimately cheesy science fiction space opera.
