Hello everyone and welcome to Brain Food, At The Movies, wherein I review Vin Diesel’s latest masterpiece, RIDDICK.

Personally, I would have labelled it RIDDICK: ALPHA MALE McSTABBY ALOTS!

  1. Thanks for calling out the treatment of Katee Sackhoff’s character by the filmmakers. Totally unnecessary, just like the early scene where the women of color is shot – using violence against women as a way to signal “this is a bad guy.” At some point it becomes gratuitous. I also do not recall them playing Riddick as such a sexist jackass in previous movies. (The toenail-painting scene was just included as a setup so Riddick could make a comment about seeing her nipples.) I remember him more of the “silent but deadly” type. The “she’s only a lesbian because she hasn’t had a good man yet” trope was tired. And it was a shame because I like Vin Diesel, generally, and the movie had potential.
