I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Men in Black 3
They are back... in time.
Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back...in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him - secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
There are two undoubted stars in the latest Men in Black film - Josh Brolin’s uncanny Tommy Lee Jones impersonation and Rick Baker. As with the previous two films, Baker’s creature effects work is exemplary, particularly his kitschy ‘60s influenced creations. Fittingly, given the film’s time travel conceit, it feels a movie out of time. Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated. However, throwbacks can still be enjoyable if they are entertaining but I’m not sure Men in Black III really is.
It is still bright and breezy but it rarely feels as much fun or as enjoyably imaginative as the first film (I’m still…
I was in my late teens when the first two Men in Black films came out and I really, really enjoyed them. Taking my age into consideration and the fact that it has been ten years since the last installment I really was not sure what I was in for with Men in Black 3. I must say, I was very pleasantly surprised.
While Tommy Lee Jones wasn't in the film for nearly as much as the younger version of Agent K, the filmmakers could not have picked a better replacement than what they found in Josh Brolin. He was pretty believable as a younger, smidgen happier K.
I think what works so well in these movies is that they…
Men In Black 2 was considered a bit of a misfire. Barry Sonnenfeld's decision to resurrect the franchise drew criticism as some saw it as a cash-grab. It might well have had the box office tills ringing, but it was a surprisingly good comeback for Smith & Jones.
The first thing that this film does is show you how to introduce your protagonist. "Boris The Animal" is Rick Baker at his most imaginative. From the off he makes a statement of intent that this will have the thrills and special effects magic that the first film had in spades. That scene on Lunar-Max was quite incredible and I still can't get over the fact that that isn't Hugo Weaving under all…
It's Men in Black, it's fun, it's better than the 2nd, that's all you need to know. I ordered an omelette, I got an omelette.
Much like Tommy Lee Jones' face, this film shouldn't work, but it does.
Thoroughly entertaining and good, fluffy fun.
Well, it is what it is. It is definitely better than the second, still it's not great but it also doesn't pretend to be a masterpiece.
It is worth it for Bill Hader's Andy Warhol cameo. It's transcendent.
The Tommy Lee Jones parts really drag and the Josh Brolin parts really pack some zip so it was a very good choice to have time travel in to the past. Loved the undercover Warhol, the unpleasant realities of how Jay gets treated in the past.
I was sick in bed for this, and it fit the bill much better than the last time I saw it.
Garbage. The script is quite often abhorrently bad, the joke about Viagrans a low point so terrible that it is tough to see how it survived the first draft unscathed.
Still incredibly fucking hilarious.
Second watch confirms that this is a surprisingly good sequel.
Film entretenido, después de la bazofia que presentaron como secuela, tiene algunos aspectos positivos, sobre todo con ese final que da un giro a la trama de toda la saga. Presenta aspecto de película de mucho menor presupuesto del que tuvo, probablemente porque la mayor parte del mismo se la llevaron Will Smith y Tommy Lee Jones. Lo dicho: entretenido, sin más, con un guión más redondo que el anterior.
Very good movie, best story of the 3 installments.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I have a daughter.
Men In Black III
Dir: Barry Sonnenfeld
Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin
Agent J (Will Smith) tries to travel back in time to prevent Boris the Animal from killing Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones). Josh Brolin plays young Agent K in 1969.
With patience of timing, good things have happened here for MIB series. MIB 3 also witnesses the facts that original director possesses insight and deep understanding about his projects to follow in future as well; and for all this we are thankful to Barry Sonnenfeld for fighting to secure his rightful lineage on this film, with Sony. Will Smith refreshed my memory typically, as much as I first had the taste of an original…
