I love this movie too.  When I first saw it I thought it was good, after a few screenings it became great.

It's one of the few movies that I can watch and enjoy over and over.

I'm too curious what the SE has.

Still no commentary.  I'm disappointed.
Also, I paid quite a bit for my Superbit disc, not sure how this one would compare.


They're also releasing a SE of Leon: The Professional.  I might get that first.

This release is basically the Superbit disc (has the SB logo on the disc) with an extra disc that has screenboards, interviews, screen tests, etc (e.g. things that should have been in original release).  This is the first release to have any special features at all  :shock: .  And oddly, every major actor is represented, but the director is not.  I've also read that the trivia track is in a pretty small font, so those with little TVs will find it illegible.

It looks like a cool buy for those who haven't picked up the Superbit version.  For those who have, I'm not sure it would be worth it to pick up again.

From what I heard, the director, Luc Benson, hates this film, and would not do any more to promote it/comment on it.

If it's just the superbit+extras, I probably won't get it then.

Sweet.  Fifth Element is one of the few movies that both Mrs. Gratch and I both enjoy.

Green?

Nice.  I've never seen this movie and figured something like this would come along.  I heard the Superbit edition was supurb, but this will definately get me to pick up a copy.

Wait, what? You've never seen this movie? What the brick-a-brack!? I'm pretty sure saying you haven't seen 5th Element gets you killed in some countries. There really is no excuse for that kind of flagrant behavior. For shame.

I know plenty of people who haven't seen the movie. I also know a ton of other people that think it was right up there as one of the worst movies they ever saw.

I perfectly understand not seeing the movie.

I never did until it showed up on The Movie Channel while we had it for free a few months back.

Yeah, it's an enjoyable movie.. but not anything near worth the kind of weird dedication some people have to it.

I haven't seen it either!  Although, it is required viewing in week 7 of my sci-fi film class, so I will see it...eventually.  I'm tempted as hell to rent it right now, actually...

Really?  Where'd you hear that?

From what I recall, this was one of Besson's prized pet projects, having originally come up with the universe and story as a teenager.  I could understand him being unhappy with the critical reaction and/or box office, but there's little doubt he made the film he wanted to make.  It's too unconventional not to be French.  biggrin

Didn't like it the first time...

Tolerated it the second time....

Watched it a third time and didn't know why....

By the fourth viewing I was hooked. This is definitely a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. If you can get over the camp (and Tucker), it's basically a fun movie.

Actually, this is the ONLY Chris Tucker movie that I can stand. He's just so massively over the top that he's funny rather than annoying. And Bruce Willis's reactions to how annoying he is makes it even funnier.

Jag's philosophy on movies extended to hammers...

Just kidding you.  But you do have a lot more patience for movies you don't like than I do.

I actually had about the same reaction.  First time I saw it in the theatre I thought it really sucked.  I blame the ads which made it seem like a different movie.  Subsequent viewings when I catch it on TV have changed my mind and now I think it is pretty enjoyable.

Ok, i get it  biggrin. My point was there was something about this movie that made me watch it again, like a car wreck. It was more that it was on TV also and i would stop to watch parts of it until it grew on me like a fungus.

This is pretty much how I feel about Tucker too.  I normally don't care much for him, but this is like taking everything that he does that's annoying and turning the knob up to 12.  Somehow, the fast talking, high-pitched whining just fits the role so perfectly.

I love the movie too, particularly for what I'd call the cinematography.  The color and style just leaps off the screen at you (felt the same way about What Dreams May Come).

I got the special edition but didn't see too much change from my other version. The main problem I had was getting the sound to work. I had to play around for 10  minutes before I figured out I needed to put it on regular stereo sound instead of their "super" sound or whatever it's called.
