The Fifth Element

Obviously a newer classic, but definitely one for the ages. This film features Bruce Willis in a futuristic society. A priest, played by Ian Holm, is charged with protecting the universe from impending doom. Gary Oldman plays a madman desperate to help incite chaos. Willis and Holm work together to protect the "fifth element" or the "supreme being," played by Milla Jovovich, who is humanity's only hope. Chris Tucker's performance provides the fabulous and memorable comic relief in this thriller. In my opinion, it is impossible not to like this film.
