So, If you track the 99 cent movie rentals at the iTunes store, then you know that this week’s feature is The Fifth Element [iTunes link] . It is one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time. In fact, I have seen The Fifth Element more than times then any other movie. Here is the official rundown:
New York cab driver Korben Dallas didn’t mean to be a hero, but he just picked up the kind of fare that only comes along every five thousand years: A perfect beauty, a perfect being, a perfect weapon. Now, together, they must save the world. Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, and Gary Oldman star in acclaimed director Luc Besson’s outrageous sci-fi adventure, an extravagantly styled tale of good against evil set in an unbelievable twenty-third century world.
So is it worth renting for a dollar?
Absolutely Nope. The iPhone is changing a bit thanks to the App Store. If you haven’t downloaded the Joost [iTunes link] application, do it now. It is free and allows you to stream video, music videos, and complete feature films for free. One of the Joost selections is… you guest it… The Fifth Element.
So, why pay a dollar for what you can stream for free? The best part, it is free and legal. There are several other great films available via Joost including another favorite of mine, “Men in Black.â€ Both Joost and the rental of “The Fifth Elementâ€ are available via the iTunes store.
