Fifth Element is the best sci-fi movie ever made in my opinion.
It was incredibly boring. I was much younger when I saw it, and even then I couldn't get past the cardboard characters and lame-looking aliens.
Some better sci fi movies: Alien, Aliens; Terminator, Terminator 2, Hunger Games; Star Wars Episodes 4 and 5; Predators; Star Trek 2,4,8,11; The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded; Inception; District 9; Planet of the Apes; Rise of the Planet of the Apes;
Also, of the non-action sort:
Time Traveller's Wife, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; Never Let me Go; Blade Runner; Back to the Future;
Basically, if it's worth watching, it's better than Fifth Element.

We're talking about Sci-Fi movies in here - Sweet. I spend most of my movie time watching dramas, but I certainly don't limit myself to other genres.
Tops for me in Sc-Fi are: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Alien, and Star Wars. The Matrix gets an honourable mention. Lots of other good ones out there too. Overall, 2001 stands out as my favourite though.
