#8 – The Fifth Element (1997)

Yeah I know, this movie has it flaws. But dammit, its just so entertaining!

I mean, Bruce Willis is awesome. And put him in an over-the-top sci-fi action thriller and you got a recipe for a great movie.

While corny in spots and maybe even a bit overlong, the movie’s greatest strength is its sense of humour. Chris Tucker is incredible as the radio DJ caught in the mix of an epic battle between good and evil. Willis gives a perfect deadpan and Gary Oldman is great in anything he does.

So check this one out if you haven’t already. As long as you’re not expecting an artsy, Oscar-worthy movie, you will be thoroughly impressed with this hugely entertaining piece of sci-fi gold.
