I remeber the exact moment when I was watching Fithf Element that I told my brain, "this isn't a movie for you, so better take a hike for now"

when Gary Oldman takes the BFG and starts showing the aliens all the different things it can do, etc. and the stupid net pops out among other things.

Ah, good times. Also Lee-loo.

Spanky_McFarksalot: I liked the movie except for the whole "unless someone loves me I'm gonna let the universe be destroyed" ending.


Way to miss the point.

What she needed to understand is why is life worth living and protecting. The answer (according to the movie) is love. Which she didn't understand until she felt it.

I try to work the line "Negative, I am a meat popsicle" into my conversations at least once a day.

Fun fact, the Divine language was invented by Besson and Jovovich and they actually wrote letters to each other in it as practice

IdBeCrazyIf: SpectroBoy: And Mila Jovavich runs around 1/2 naked in it.

To be fair, she did this in nearly every movie she has ever been in. In fact I am fully convinced that the Resident Evil series only exists to continue to film her half naked because her husband as a weird voyeur cuckold complex.


I'd let her husband film me farkold'ing her complex.  If you know what I mean, and I think you do.  Is that weird?

Alphax: MaudlinMutantMollusk: 5th Element is one of my favorites

/it's here in the collection in frequent rotation
//for some reason, I really like the closing credit music, among other things

Peter Gabriel song, written just for the movie, I think.

I also like the taxi chase scene music.. I found the original track by the Pakistani singer accidentally, back in my old music file sharing days.


Khaled is Algerian, not Pakistani. Look up his songs 'Didi' (Arabic) and 'Aicha' (French) and his entire 'Sahra' album. I suspect you'll approve.

which would be a really bad design flaw by the race that engineered her. The fate of the entire universe rest on the  off chance that the 5th element discovers a reason why life is  worth protecting before the darkness destroys everything.

What exactly was their plan if her ship wasn't attacked and she ended up finding the Bruce? Have her join Match.com? go on a few dates? fall in love? then save the universe.

I'm guessing a race that engineered a "perfect" being would program in a line or two about life being worth protecting.

From what I remember of the movie they didn't plan on the 5th element walking around and realizing that humanity  and life in the universe in general were pretty shiatty to each other. She was supposed to remain encased and in the center of the temple and then they were supposed to just activate the 4 elemental thingies and she'd take out the bad guys. There was no thought to her getting out of the big stone or whatever material casing, learning people are shiat and refusing to do her part of the job.

It's nice to see the Milla love around here. Most of the douchebags I know won't look at a girl that doesn't have DDs, no matter how plastic they are.

She needed something to get her over the disillusionment of discovering that the human race often acts with all the restraint and peacefullness of an enraged gorilla with a flame-thrower.

Pretty much that, she was an engineered designed weapon meant to stay locked up until needed. Once she found out how farked up the universe she was supposed to protect despair set in and a huge sense of guilt I imagine at protecting the universe for some thousands and thousands of years.

CSB moment

So wife and I are sitting on the couch flipping channels and it lands on the first Resident Evil. I stop and pause for a moment and she tells me "If we have to watch this, you're not getting laid tonight" I turn to the screen and its that one moment where she's looking farking sexy as hell in that red dress and I pause for a moment....long enough apparently that my wife then goes "And because you had to think about it, you're not getting laid"

To which I asked her "Ok, but can we still watch the movie?"

For me it was Tommy "Tiny" Lister - Galactic President.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: The Fifth Element is an okay movie, but if it's one of your "favorites" you have problems.  Terrible acting (some of the performances anyway...) terrible story cheesy effects...


Stop liking what I don't like?

Maybe they didn't expect us to evolve in to such war-prone asshats and just assumed she would love us because we were living things.

 It all went down hill when she found the internet.

Chris Tucker ensured that no matter how many times I tried to watch it, I would not make it through.
 
2013-09-13 03:47:42 PM  
I love this movie. If I stumble across it switching tv channels I always end up watching it, no matter how far into the run-time it is.

Youngish Bruce Willis in a sweaty tank top, stunning Mila in a bandage bodysuit kicking ass, goofy giant alien rhinos, stunning production design and a sense of humour akin to a Monty Python movie. It's right up my alley.

neritz: The script for Colombiana was based on the sequel script for the professional. Since the weren't going to get anyone from The Professional, it was rewritten to be a standalone movie


I remember seeing or hearing that somewhere myself.

I'm all for it.  There are two sci-fi movies that I can sit down and watch over and over again.. Star Wars and Fith Element.  There will only ever be one LeeLuDallasMultiPass!

/MULTI-PASS
//Yea yea, she knows what a multi-pass is.

More gee-whiz special effects techniques are now available--that's always the basis for great cinema.

just watched this a few days ago as a matter of fact. still stands up to the test of time quite well, one doesn't get caught up in the lack of fancy graphics and a 3-hour story line and can just enjoy the comic action from scene to colorful scene. completely enjoyable

Some people already thought the first one was a remake:

I love that car chase song too. The "Peter Gabriel" song is actually Eric Serra. It's called Little Light of Love.
/bought the soundtrack after seeing the movie

I keep seeing this when browsing Netflix and have wondered about it. Guy Pierce seems like an odd action star, is all.

Let's not forget Bilbo was in this movie.  The first half of the Lord of the Rings in the theater my brain was screaming at me about why Bilbo looked so damn familiar.

And to honest, I HATED this movie the first time I saw it.  It tolerated it the second time.  The third time I thoroughly enjoyed it, and now (as has been said already) it's right up there with Princess Bride.

If you read the book' it is possible for Sort to be back...
