Legend of the Five (2020)

The movie legend of the five is a teenage fantasy movie. It features the 5 elements (fire, water, earth, air and ether). This is an old theme. The four classical elements earth, air, fire and water put forward by Aristotle were augmented with the ether also to match the 5 platonic solids. A similar 5 element model appears in Chinese Taoist philosophy: fire, earth, water, metal and wood. One can argue about the quality of the movie. I guess it is a decent kids movie. The music is actually quite good and the main 5 characters are pretty well played. The fairy creatures could need a bit more work. Looks a bit like technology when the Wizard of Oz was done. The best is at the end, where one can see some cool animations with epicycles. This is why it is included in the math in movies collection.
