"Empty! The opposite of full!" - The Fifth Element (1997)
nudityandnerdery and I are watching this. Weirdness.
We decided they should make a shot-for-shot remake of The Fifth Element, with all the same cast, except the role of Leeloo played by Jackie Chan.
I don’t want to see Jackie Chan topless.
YOU KNOW YOU TOTALLY DO
Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future
