My Favorite Film Extraterrestrials, Species Number 5: The Mangalores from ‘The Fifth Element.’

Today, I’m kicking off the list of my favorite extraterrestrial species on film with the Mangalores from The Fifth Element. I’ll share one a day through Halloween, so be sure to check back all week.

Design-wise, the Mangalores were your typical actor-in-a-costume Hollywood alien. While they were belligerent and violent in nature, they also had a charming simpleness that made them sorta lovable. Plus they were shape-shifters.

In the first couple months after its release, I saw The Fifth Element five times in three different theaters, which wasn’t bad considering I had neither a job nor my own car in those days. It remains one of my all-time favorite flicks.
