The Fifth Element
So many great lines! Mila Jovovich is hot and Bruce Willis is at his best. Chris Tucker – batshit crazy! It’s the perfect blend of science fiction and broad, over the top comedy. Can you say multi-pass?
Leeloo is the Fifth Element. She is the one who will save them all, and yet she is like an innocent child. She knows what she must do and will stop at nothing, but there is still a soft side. She is all strength and all woman.
Who is Leeloo?
LG Smith at Bards and Prophets!
She is NOT a woman I would cross! She’d kick my butt. She is all about empowerment. That is her strength. And yet, she possesses a very geeky side. Merged together, she is one powerful but caring woman. I’m honored to call her my friend.
LG is a writer and expert in the history of women warriors.
To you I dedicate Force Ten by Rush. Because you are a force and you are tough! (Song title links to YouTube.)
“Tough times demand tough talk, Demand tough hearts demand tough songs, Demand…”
Trivia and Facts:
Where does LG live?
On what album did the song Force Ten appear?
E’s trivia answers – Jay’s theme for the Challenge is the 80’s, and Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have done nine feature length films together.
How my Theme Came Together!
I’m glad everyone is enjoying my theme this year. It's always to feature some of my blogger buddies, and every year I try to do something different. How did I end up with Favorite Movies-Blogger Buddies-Music? It started as one small idea…
I thought I’d list my favorite movies and then blogger buddies who reminded me of those films. So I made a list of blogger buddies (over sixty of you!) and then went through my movies, matching those up to the alphabet.Then I tried matching buddies to movies.
That didn’t seem to be working, so I decided to match to characters instead. I listed several characters for each film and went from there. Describe the movie, describe the character, describe the blogger buddy. Got it! Grab links to blogs. Easy.
Then I had a wild idea. How about a matching song? Yeah, I’ll select a song that matches each blogger buddy and find the video on YouTube for linkage. (Sounds cool now, but matching the song was harder than anticipated.) I finally finished and then...
Wait a minute! Trivia! I need trivia.
That’s where the theme rolled over into the over-ambitious and insane realm. Now I was looking for trivia and facts on either the movie, the blogger, or the band. Oh, and I still needed images. And I had to format all of the posts in html so I could just copy and paste. (Because with the Ninja News still running, I couldn’t preschedule any of my posts until the night before.)
Average time preparing each post – three hours or more.
Next year I’m posting the phone book!
Fan of The Fifth Element? Fan of LG’s? Fan of Rush – don’t answer if you’re not! Know the trivia answers? And how did you decide on your theme? Anyone else a little over-ambitious…?
