The Chronicles of Riddick

    Has anyone seen this movie yet. "Professer" Vin Diesel describes a planet as having a surface temperature at night of -300 degrees celcius.

    Is it just me, or is that catergorically the worst piece of science fiction writing ever.

    If you know one better, I'd love to hear it.

    Yes, I've seen it.
    I went in, thinking I was about to see an awful movie, and was pleasantly surprised in that the movie was only silly (story&physics)

    He's still better at science than he is at acting.
