5th element is genius. It's in my permanent collection. A beautiful mix of genres and characters. Very witty and creative script. Terrific casting. Probably watched it 10 times already (a lot for me), and will watch it again. 10 popcorn buckets.
Its on at 8:00pm Eastern on Dish 's BBCC channel. I'm not much of a Science Fiction fan but with BBB's endorsement, I'll watch it tonight.

That was the first time I'd ever seen Chris Tucker, Milla Jovovich, or Matt Perry. Tucker especially, but all 3 were great. Gary Oldman is genius. And Bruce was just right. Sarcastic, ballsy, world-weary, savvy.

Loved the insane plot. And the amazing aria the alien sang had the hair on my arms standing up. Too many good bits to go on about. Just fun.

You have to be willing to roll with it. Total fantasy. Have a drink or two. Be sure to laugh.

I can't really remember the last time I bumped my chin on a foot rail. Alas.

Not spoilers, but it gives you an idea of difference of the movies

Lucy, opening and closing lines. Fairly ungainly

Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?
Life was given to us a billion years ago. Now you know what to do with it.


Fifth Element Dramatic Scene- but still an element of absurdity

Mr President, any idea when you gonna be getting to the point?
A ball of fire 1,200 miles in diameter is heading straight for Earth.
We have no idea how to stop it. That's the problem.
How much time do we have? If its speed remains constant, an hour and 57 minutes. I'll call you back in two hours.
Hello?
They just landed in the desert.
Good job, David!
- Put her in the centre.
- Where? Here?
- You got it figured out?
- This one should be fire.
- You know how this works?
- Theoretically. The... four stones should go around. The Fifth Element should be in the middle, then, the weapon against Evil should work.
- You've never seen this work?
- No. Every weapon has a manual. I'm sure this has one too. That's it! Match up the symbols, go! Wind... What are you doing?
- What?
- What are you doing? Trying to keep you in the D.J. business.
Fire... Done! So what now?
Now, we have to open them.
You know how to do that, right?
Theoretically... No. Leeloo, wake up! You have to help us. How do you open these stones?
Wind blows...
Fire burns...
I know all that.
But how do you open the Stones?
Rain... ...falls.
Leeloo!
What does it mean?
I think that...
Maybe it's a charade, a game or something.
If we don't get these Stones open in five minutes, we're dead.
Yes, dead! Too late. We've lost contact with him. I think mine is broken. Why I gotta get the broke one?
We're never gonna make it.
Korben! It moved!
- Show me what you did.
- Nothing. Shut up!
Calm down and show me what you did step by step.
I was standing here. I put my hands on the top, and I said...
We're not gonna make it.
That's it?
Korben...
Wind...
She said "wind blows".
Everyone take a Stone.
Water for water, fire for fire, earth for earth. Go!
Earth...
Open the other one.
Korben, my man!
I have no fire.
I have no matches.
Do you have any?
I stopped smoking.
You smoke?
Got some matches?
We need some fire.
Don't breathe.
Fire.
One minute.Let's go, Leeloo! Wake up. Time for you to work, now. Protect life... until death. Listen to me! Listen!
I know you're very tired. I'll take you on vacation. A real vacation, just you and me.
But if you don't do something right now, we'll all die.
What's the use of saving life when you see what you do with it?

This reminds me of another kind of absurd sci fi that I found pretty entertaining. The adventures of Buckaroo Banzai accross the 8th dimension

No matter where you go, there you are!

One of the most underrated films of all time. He could have been the American Doctor Who. But he is better remembered for Robotcop

Lady Bird

A great little indie movie about a Sacramento teen's senior year in high school. I really enjoyed it. Great performances by Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf.

Should do well come awards season..
