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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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.

- Ends the trilogy with style and a hefty emotional punch that totally feels in keeping with the previous movies. Props to Josh Brolin for the best Tommy Lee Jones impression ever.
Not anywhere near as funny as the original. Also not as (duh!) original as the original. But compared to the first two films, this actually has a little soul, and a nice focus on the strange J/K ying/yang relationship. A little more cleverness in K's personality before and after the timejump (and a little more energy from Mr. Jones) would've provided even more heart and pleasure. But even so, this film is rich with the typical MiB inventiveness. The baddie's palm-vage. The adrenalizing (3D assisted) joy of the literal time jump. Andy Warhol. The 60s. Cape Canaveral. Bazza's odd but cool directing rhythm of performances. Best of all is Brand Walsh's inhabitation of Mr. Jones's persona. This movie ain't that funny, granted. But it's a helluva lot of fun.
I'll risk my credibility, I loved this. Sure, it has its faults, but the cast is so likable, the atmosphere so detailed, and the comedy so good. The sequel I wish we got in the first place.
I really liked Griffin.
O terceiro filme do MIB é bem dispensável. Roteiro simples e sem pontos altos. Vale muito pela atuação do Josh Brolin que encaixou perfeitamente com o K, quando jovem e as cenas que envolve o personagem feito pelo Michael Stuhlbarg.
3D Glad they kept going until they got to the 3D era of film making to bring this team into the high definition age. Much more fun film than expected, but sadly Tommy Lee Jones' character is somewhat neutered in this film. Otherwise the adventure with aliens is a great romp in remembrance of their previous 2 films. This film can almost be seen standing alone?
A decent action romp.
We don't get to see much of Tommy Lee Jones as Agent K instead we get Josh Brolin as the younger Agent K which is not entirely the same. It's cool that they get to explore time travel in this movie.
Today marks the 6 year anniversary of awesomeness in my life. This list represents every movie my old lady (she…
