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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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.
"O? No, I call ladies "O." To me O is feminine, and K is masculine. You know, I see a couple, I'm like, "O-K."
Disappointing.Just disappointing.Not only Men in Black 3 is not as good as the original,as many people say,but also,in my opinion is the worst of the franchise.Even though Josh Brolin is really good,and it's always nice to see Will Smith having fun on the screen,there are so many problems going on here.For example ,the villain,was the most annoying creature this trilogy have ever created.Even more annoying than the alien guy who looks like a younger Robin Williams (or a smiley Joaquin Phoenix,whatever you want).Then,and maybe that's my fault,the whole time travel storyline didn'd appeal to me,there wasn't…
Much better than the second, not as good as the first.
This one was way better than the second film and might even be better than the first. Will Smith time travels to 1960's, fucks around with Josh Brolin's agent K and learns an important lesson about his father.
This one is just as good as the original. Introducing a newer concept to the universe, MiB3 shifts its gears to a time-based plot which works, but with any time travel movie, there are some parts that don't make sense.
( C+ ) Felt sort of obligated to see this since I saw the other 2 but these days this kind of movie just seems like a kiddie flick. Goofy aliens, corny jokes, ect. The story was creative & the ending had a cool moment but these films don't really seem like actual movies to me. They just seem like long episodes of some wacky tv show on the SciFi Channel. Brolin did a great young Tommy Lee Jones impression but I still missed the real Agent K.
Despite being an egregious offender in the world of ADRed jokes, MIB 3 is better than I'd expected, especially in comparison to MIB 2. Josh Brolin is unreal.
It throws the schmaltz and cheesiness of 2 out the window and gets back to what made the original so good: the relationship between K & J. Brolin nails young K perfectly, it's scary. There are some issues within the storyline that don't get explained which hurts it, and that's the sticky situation with time travel. Overall, it suceess where two failed, but it doesn't surpass the first one.
I kind of went off these films as there never seemed to be any risk of the main characters getting hurt or killed (a bit why I initially went off the Hobbit).
But, I have to say, this third installment in the MIB franchise was surprisingly watchable. And who doesn't like time travel?
I’ve grown to like this series more and more over the years. I saw the first one in a theatre in Japan and a Canadian friend of mine was sitting a few seats behind me and there were many scenes that the two of us would be laughing to while the rest of the audience was dead silent. For example, I think there’s a scene where Will Smith jumps off a bridge onto a bus and he says something like, “Hey, it’s raining black people.” We were totally laughing while the rest of the audience was left wondering if we were crazy of somethin’. …sometimes stuff just gets lost in the translation. Anyway, back to the topic of “Men in…
