Welcome back to another Yultide Mini-sode of CNET's The 404 Podcast. We'll be keeping you company with fresh episodes, year-end wrap-ups, CES previews, and much more!


Welcome back to another Yuletide Mini-sode of CNET's The 404 Podcast. We'll be keeping you company all season with fresh episodes, year-end wrap-ups, CES 2010 previews, and much more!

Today's special holiday edition of The 404 is dedicated to The Fifth Element, easily one of our favorite movies of all time. From the epic vision of the distant future to the colorful characters and of course the operatic techno scene, this movie retains its entertainment value after almost 13 years.

To celebrate, we run off a list of our favorite scenes and quotes from the movie, then play a quick game of trivia. For example, did you know that Ruby Rhod wasn't supposed to be the original name for Chris Tucker's character? It was actually Loc Rhod! The original name appears in the script and the movie novelization.

Lots more to talk about, so check out the show and keep it hot hot HOT!
