The Fifth Element (1997)

I guess it's obvious by now that we're doing some kind of '90s movie revival thing here lately and The Fifth Element did not disappoint!! We'd each seen it once when it came out (but we were just 12 and 20 then and remembered almost nothing about it) but it was better this time. Is it brilliant? Well, no! But it's super fun and fast paced...and it has Bruce Willis. :> And Milla Jojovich as Leeloo!! They are both great in it but it's worth watching the movie for Chris Tucker's performance alone:


He kills it as Ruby Rhod!! His screams, omg. *LOL*.

Fun Fact: The role was originally intended for Prince, but he turned it down because he thought the outfits were too effeminate.
