100 Word Review – Zoolander (2001)

This film is really really ridiculously good looking.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson star as Derek and Hansel, rival male models. Little do they know that they are pawns in an industry corrupted by power and political greed.

Christine Taylor, Will Ferrell and Milla Jovovich co-star in this ridiculous comedy. Directed by Stiller and co-written by him, it has some truly brilliant cameos and is almost worth watching just for that. It is also endlessly quotable to the point where it has become a true cult classic. If you plan on watching the sequel, make sure to see this first.

100 Word Review – The Fifth Element (1997)

If you are looking for an entertaining Sci Fi with an awesome cast, look no further.

Written and directed by the profoundly talented Luc Besson (Leon), it stars Bruce Willis as Korben Dallas, a taxi driver in the 23rd Century ¬†who must help “perfect being” Leeloo (Milla Jovovich) save the world and escape from the evil Zorg (Gary Oldman in the most amazing headpiece you are ever likely to see). Chris Tucker makes an appearance as Ruby Rhod, the universe’s most annoying radio DJ.

It has action, comedy, romance, music and some very repeatable one-liners (MULTI-PASS!). This is a no-brainer.
