The Fifth Element (1997)
Neon-haired Milla Jovovich stole many a young nerd's heart in Luc Besson's vision of the future. But it's the alien menagerie that peoples The Fifth Element – from the armoured Mondoshawans to the blue opera diva Plavalaguna – that wins it a place on this list. Bruce Willis donned his vest once again to kick alien ass, while Chris Tucker and Lee Evans provided high-pitched humour. We use the word "humour" advisedly.
