Leeloo Is The Perfect 8-Bit Being In This Version Of The Fifth Element [VIDEO]

CineFix has put together an 8-bit version of my all-time favorite film, The Fifth Element (with a little 16-bit, they admit.) What I wouldn’t give to play this game. My only issue is they kept her in the bandage outfit the whole time. I personally prefer the orange suspenders.

Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

The Fifth Element’s Multipass Will Soon Be A Reality For UK Travelers

I need this technology immediately. If only so I have a legitimate reason to go around saying “Multipass” ten times a day.

Heroes of Sci-Fi and Their True Loves

Rhett Hildebrandt used these graphics of sci-fi/fantasy OTPs (that’s One True Pairing, y’all) to propose to his fiancée through social media (I’ll let When Geeks Wed explain how). She said yes, but the drawings are still up on the internet for the rest of us to enjoy.

Super Green Fifth Element LEGO Model Recreates Fhloston Paradise

Welcome to Fhloston Paradise! The hotel of a thousand and one follies, lollies, and lick ‘em lollies. A magic fountain flow of non stop wine, women and hootchie cootchie coo! Yeah, I did that straight from memory. The Fifth Element is my favorite film. I’m not sure if I’ve talked about my obsession with it on The Mary Sue before but let’s just say I have Leeloo’s tattoo and leave it at that. So when we were sent this fantastic LEGO creation from Matt De Lanoy I jumped with joy. The “Fhloston Paradise” set was created as part of a larger set up for a Northern Illinois LEGO Train Club show. This is just the empty set, as it were, click ahead to see what it looks like when all the “actors” are thrown in. And yes, there are Mangalores galore.

Things We Saw Today: A Fridge That Definitely Has Room for Leftover Turkey

I’m just saying. If I hadn’t already cleaned out my fridge after losing power for four days during Hurricane Sandy, I’d be thinking about it. (That’s Nerdalicious!)

Saintly Icons of Women from Science Fiction Cinema

Just this morning we showed you a saint turned into various pop culture icons, well here are some sci-fi icons made saintly by artist Jska Priebe, for her series STELLAR: The Women of Science Fiction. I’d seen her version of Ripley before, but had no idea it was merely a single part of a series. Believe it or not, you can buy prints of all of them at Priebe’s store, and in the meantime, you can look at all of them right here.

Ïve Bastrash’s Beautiful Alternate Movie Posters

Canadian artist Ïve Bastrash’s alternate movie posters are kind of creepy. In that I’m not sure how he got a look at my DVD collection, because that’s, like, in my apartment. I’m just saying, if he’d wanted to borrow a movie or two, he could have just asked.

Woman Takes On 161-Word Name For Charity. No, It Doesn’t Start With “Leeloo.”

Why would anyone willingly change their name to something really, really, really, really long? One hundred and sixty one words to be exact. No, this wasn’t the work of some terrible bet between friends, it’s all for charity. She was born Dawn Marie McManus but today she goes by, well, you’re going to have to see it to believe it.
