    The Fifth Element is on TNT right now, if you hurry you can catch it. It has an awesome scene with Maïwenn Le Besco as the Diva, that scene alone is worth the whole movie. And Mila Jojovich (yummy), and Bruce Willis, Ian Holm, Luke Perry, Chris Tucker....

    Highly recommended!

    Oh yea, that's one of my all time favorite sci-fi movies. It's just so much fun. Not too mention all the rad music and great visual effects(even by today's standards)
  3. That movie is so incredibly odd...which is a big part of what makes it so cool. Gary Oldman is also hilariously over-the-top. A neat flick.

    I never could get into that movie. Milla looks terrible in it, and I normally think she's gorgeous. Must be the no eyebrows thing.

    C'mon, the bandages did nothing for you???!?!?!?

    I thought that movie was cool, pretty unique in terms of style if not so much in content.

    I really like the visuals of Fifth Element, the story's kind of cool as well. I think the whole movie would have been much better if Bruce Willis had just been taken out of the picture, I'm convinced, now, that man can't act his way out of a paper bag.

    I was in Paris a few years ago and stopped in a comic shop and took a gander at what they had. I didn't get anything (it being all in french). But the art was fantastic, especially the sci-fi comics. I kind of wish I had gotten one now, because some of them were really really cool, watching Fifth Element, I had the same sense of awe with the visuals (it being done by a french director).

    There are definitely some very cool scenes in this movie. How about the Chinese restaurant guy, who's floating around in that spacey looking "junk"? :D

    "Lee-loo Dallas mul-ti-pass."

    Great movie I saw it at least three times in the theater and have it on DVD and the soundtrack on CD. The colors are great, the music is good, nice pacing. I also love the Diva scene. Peter Gabriel does a pretty cool song in the credits.

  16. There's just so much to like about this movie!!! I love Dallas' mother guilt trips on the phone. And where else can you here Criss Tucker scream like such a little bitch

    I watch everytime it comes on HBO, I need to buy it!!!!!
  17. One of my favourite sci-fi flics ever. Great balance of substance and action(not too much of either), visually stunning and most of all it doesn't come across so stagnantly serious as way too many sci-fi films do.
