The Fifth Element (1997) - "Negative, I am a meat popsicle"

Update: 2021-02-10


When rewatching a sci-fi movie from decades ago, it's often hilarious how the future and technology is assumed to evolve. 1997's "The Fifth Element" seems to intentionally lean into that hard, as the technology appears to have been developed by someone from the early 80's interpretation of what the future might be. Join us as we take a trip to planet Fhloston to save the universe and admire everything Ruby Rhod.
