    Fifth Element is STILL one of my favorite films.

    It’s a genre-bender. Comedy/Musical/SciFi/Action. Bruce Willis does a great job. Milla Jovovich’s enthusiam is infectious – and she’s damn hot in that (lack of) outfit. Chris Tucker is hysterical. The plot uses the mysticism, but isn’t slowed by it. And ye gods, is it pretty.

    (That being said, the trailer for the movie was amazing, and may actually be better than the flick itself. Oh, and fwiw: if you like 5th Element, go rent Hudson Hawk – I’ve found that people who like one like the other)

      Do NOT rent Hudson Hawk!

      I must say that I really enjoyed 5th Element, but Hudson Hawk does not have anything that is good about it. It is not even so good that it’s bad. It’s just – boring.

      The only redeeming thing about it is that the “bad” chick is hot. And there was that scene with something going out the window – literally…

      Just my 2 öres…
