The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers. It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.

Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics.

This PG-rated movie feels safe and constricted in a way the story never does on the page. It leaves out the deep magic of a good movie, or a good sermon: the feeling that something vital is at stake.

For sheer entertainment value, and the painless imparting of values about family, loyalty and bravery, this lion in winter roars loudly.

It's a work of profound ambition, and, in adapting it for the screen, the makers of The Chronicles of Narnia don't shy away from its demands.

Adamson eschews the big look-isn't-it-magical gestures of the Potter/Tim Burton approach, but he manages to convey the sense of wonder a wartime evacuee might feel at such transportation.

The Chronicles of Riddick is a 2004 sci-fi film featuring the characters established in Pitch Black . David Twohy wrote and directed the film and Vin Diesel co-produced. The Chronicles takes place five years after the events in Pitch Black, and is set 505 years in the future, where Riddick who's been in hiding is now forced back on the map after a bounty has been put on his head from a man he once knew. In the end he will find out that his true destiny is to rule the universe.

On a reported budget of $110 million the film was mostly shot in Canada where incentives were used to lower the budget to $105 million. Vin Diesel was payed $11 million for his role as the anti-hero, and ultimately kept pursuing Judi Dench to star in the movie. The film was shot over the course of 85 days on sound stages using green screens and sets. The original plans were to introduce a new trilogy and lore, one that would rival the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, but ultimately the movie bombed at the box office. The Chronicles only brought in $57,761,012 in domestic receipts and $58,011,721 in foreign receipts, this caused Universal to shelf Riddick for good.

“Had Universal said to us, ‘Let's roll over, let's pick it up right at the end of the last movie’ and funded it, we would have ventured into the Necromonger underverse and we would have had a big The Lord of the Rings-style movie on our hands. But That didn't happen, so cleverly Vin and I got the rights back and produced it ourselves on a smaller scale. That said, it still looks like a big movie. I think the audience will see the tip of the hat to Pitch Black, but they won't feel claustrophobic.” -David Twohy

From the Chronicles came two video games. Escape from Butcher Bay and Assault on Dark Athena , that were well received which expanded on Riddick's previous back-story.

Sometime in 2009 Vin Diesel and David Twohy acquired the rights of Riddick from Universal and a new film entitled  Riddick   was released September 6, 2013.

The Necromongers are introduced as a militant death cult bent upon destroying intelligent life to trigger the end of all things, "Underverse come." Toward this end they occupy planets to recruit new cult members who are used to further the destruction of more planets. The Necromongers are led by a Lord Marshal , an all-powerful yet politically fraught position. "You keep what you kill" is a Necromonger operative phrase that applies to even the late Lord Marshal itself. Important Necromongers include the Purifier , ambitious but devout commander Vaako , and Dame Vaako , his manipulative and clever wife.

Chronicles is the last book of the Hebrew Bible , according to the ordering in the Talmud (Tractate Baba Batra 14b) and in most printings of the Bible. (In the Aleppo Codex, a very accurate 11th-century C.E. manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, the last book is Ezra-Nehemiah .) The division into I Chronicles and II Chronicles is first found in the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible done in the second or third century B.C.E.

Chronicles is generally considered to have been written in the fifth century B.C.E., and is therefore one of the latest books of the Hebrew Bible. The author of Chronicles evidently had access to most of the earlier books of the Bible, including Samuel and Kings , from which the book draws much of its material.

Chronicles retells the story of the Israelite/Jewish people, briefly summarizing the history until the reign of King David , and then focusing on the reigns of David, Solomon  and the later kings of Judea. (It largely omits any mention of the kings of the Northern Kingdom of Israel.) But Chronicles does not simply retell the narrative of the Davidic kings. Chronicles has its own particular view of Israel’s history to tell, in which particular events and groups are highlighted, while other events are de-emphasized.

One aspect of this phenomenon is the fact that Chronicles never mentions the Exodus from Egypt. One passage in particular — the story of Ephraim’s sons who were born in Canaan (I Chronicles 7:21) — suggests that the Chronicler does not think that all of the children of Israel were in Egypt. The period of the wandering in the desert and the giving of the Torah also do not figure prominently. Chronicles also does not focus on the Babylonian exile : All periods when the Israelites did not live in the land of Israel are de-emphasized.

On the other hand, Chronicles very clearly emphasizes the two dynastic political institutions of Judea, the Davidic monarchy and the Temple . It highlights the covenant that God made with David, and describes David and his descendants as sitting “on the throne of the Lord” (I Chronicles 29:23). David and Solomon are idealized and the period of their reign is described in glorious terms. The story of Solomon’s succession highlights this idealization: David is described as announcing to all of Israel that God has chosen Solomon as David’s successor (I Chronicles 28:5).

Chronicles goes to great lengths to describe the genealogies of the Temple workers whom David appointed (I Chronicles chapters 15, 16, 23-27). Genealogies of the early Israelites are also described in detail, with I Chronicles chapters 1-9 being a summary of Israelite history until the time of King David; the summary consists almost entirely of genealogies.
