FILM—It wasn't screened in time for our deadline, but we're still going to recommend Riddick—Vin Diesel's return to the creepy-eyed antihero he played in 2000's great sci-fi thriller Pitch Black. After a disappointing sequel, Riddick aims to go back to basics—bringing Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff along for the ride. NOTE: THIS FILM ALSO FEATURES AT LEAST ONE SPACE PUPPY. EH
Various theaters, see our forthcoming review at portlandmercury.com and Movie Times
UPDATE: Don't go see Riddick.
MUSIC—With a catalog of reggae hits that's even bigger than you remember, the chance to see Jimmy Cliff is the chance to see a living legend in action. For this tour, he'll be telling the stories behind his historic songs, making this a can't-miss—especially considering Cliff still performs with more energy and soul than performers a third his age.
