A Clockwork Orange
This odd dystopian masterpiece by Stanley Kubrick really captures the viewers attention at once with the opening milk bar scene. It then proceeds with a mind-blowing silhouette shot and continues on with twenty minutes of intense "ultraviolence". Basically everything in this film is flawless Malcolm McDowell´s brilliant acting, the insane plot, the astonishing surroundings. Another genius idea was using the "Nadsat" slang from the novel which is done in perfect quantity and really adds to the tone of the film. A must see movie for every cinephile.

An intense and action-packed space-adventure, exceptionally directed and well-acted. Joss Whedon does an outstanding job concluding his superb but short-lived tv-series Firefly, The series ended leaving alot of loose ends, most of which are tied up nicely, altough it benefits from the viewer having seen the series it can also be viewed on its own as well.

The Fifth Element
The Fifth Element is a fully enjoyable, lighthearted and fast-paced Sci-fi adventure which has borrowed stylistic and visual elements from other classic science fiction productions such as Blade Runner and Star Trek. To very shortly sum up the odd story of the film, it depicts a future society where former special-ops major, Korben Dallas played by Bruce Willis is working as a taxi-driver after resigning from the military. A destructive entity is threatening earth and impending doom seems unavoidable, but the event have been foreseen by priests and an alien race called Mondoshawans and these aliens have created a weapon against the destructive entity in the form of a supreme being called the fifth element. As the result of a series of incidental events the fifth element also known a Leeloo played by Milla Jovovich happens to find herself in Korbens cab and sooner than he knows, Korben becomes involved in a mission to save all of mankind.

I generally tend to dislike campy movies, but i can't really say if this particular film would be better if it took a more serious tone or if the goofiness is such a big part of the films entertainment value that it would suffer without it. The casting is more or less optimal, Bruce Willis is as great as always playing the every day action hero and Milla Jovovich pulls of a very difficult role as the supreme being Leeloo, Gary Oldman gives a very strange performance which fits well with the film and Ian Holm plays a future priest and last of we have Chris Tucker who plays a future radio DJ, a role which is partially an annoying stereotype that takes up too much space in the film, but equally much a source of humor. This isn't the usual type of Science-fiction and it doesn't focus that much on modern issues nor does it get political, but on a few occasions the director takes some satirical strikes at commercialism and the film makes some very interesting points concerning the nature of humanity and our inability to view ourselves objectively.
