Hubby came home looking like death and in an instant I remembered vividly why I despise Ballarat Winters. We are literally only toes deep into the darkest season and we have all been sick already. Nothing like a good shared germ in a household to really strengthen those family bonds and share around the misery!
Even my new Dr Who scarf - that I finally finished knitting on the weekend, couldn't keep the chill away today. Seriously, if I didn't have a coat on I would've poked out a someone's eyeball today and not with my finger!
Time for carbs and protein with a sprinkling of parmesan; and a good measure of Science Fiction to get me through the hump day glums.
Release Date: 1997
Running Time: 126 mins
Everyone knew about the four main elements in the world - fire, water, earth and air, but how much did they know about the fifth element? Nothing really, and then Luc Besson directed this absolute peach of a movie and everyone was enchanted from then on.
The Fifth Element could easily fall into the comedy category, mostly due to Chris Tucker's hilarious character Ruby Rod, but it is set in a most colourful future where aliens and humans live in cohabitation, cars hover and everyone wears Jean-Paul Gaultier making it a visually delightful science fiction tale.
Add in a stellar cast like Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman and Milla Jovovich - playing the mesmerizing Leeloo and you have a slice of pure gold entertainment.
FINAL SAY: Multi-pass
