Sci-Fi Movie Podcast - Pitch BlackThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Ian, Rem and Brian discuss “Pitch Black” from 2000 and directed by David Twohy.

The Positive
Brian liked the very unique lighting and cinematography in this movie, and appreciated the creatures weren’t given away too soon. They allowed some suspense and tension to generate before the creature reveal. Rem also liked that this didn’t feel like a typical Hollywood movie.

The Negative
Ian really disliked this movie, feeling that the premise was simply too unbelievable.  Rem and Brian agreed the premise is a bit of a stretch. Brian noticed that Pitch Black is starting to look a bit dated on newer HD TV’s, and also found the move tended to drag in the middle.

The Verdict
We were very split on the verdict. Ian says skip Pitch Black and the two following movies.  Brian suggests watch all three. Rem suggests watching Pitch Black and skipping the two sequels.
