The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
A crew is shipwrecked on an alien planet infested with deadly nocturnal creatures. The planet's suns are going down and the crews only hope of survival is mysterious convict Richard B. Riddick and his unique eyes, capable of seeing in the dark.
They say most of your brain shuts down in cryosleep.

A long time between stops.
A long time for something to go wrong.
