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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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.
It shouldn't have worked (and it almost doesn't), but, in the end, it was good fun.
Josh Brolin's best work doesn't help a cast and crew that just don't seem to really care, which is sad when you know the talent that everyone who came together to make this thing have.
I'm not the only one who thought that this sequel was a very desperate attempt for Will Smith to get his glory days back. We really were not aching for him to go back to this franchise and pump out a meaningless sequel, but I for one was, and still am pleasantly surprised with how good Men In Black 3 really is.
There is a lot of negativity towards this movie that has the best story of all three films, and I appreciate the writers at least waiting to come up with a decent story to tell, then giving us a another tired story of chasing after a another generic Alien. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith still have got…
"Go ahead, arrest me."
"Not this time."
Probably the best one liner of all times, if you think about it.
Men in Black II should have been the death knell of this burgeoning franchise in the making, and it pretty much was. Ten years passed between the second and third films, and while the third film does manage to recapture some of the breezy fun of the first film, I'm still not so certain that it needed to exist in the first place.
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones haven't changed much at all. In fact it could be argued that they virtually ignore the second film altogether (which, really, isn't all that bad of an idea). The film manages to get back to the buddy cop dynamic that helped make the first film so damn entertaining, trading in on…
Blah blah blah. Why even, etc.
man that ending got me good, nearly broke a tear
I, like a lot of other people, really, really enjoyed Men In Black. In fact, I still do. Unlike a lot of other people, I also really enjoyed the sequel. It wasn’t up to the high standard set by the first film but it was more good fun featuring characters that I liked spending time with.
When I heard that they were making a third movie I was happy but also apprehensive. By 2012 it seemed as if the MIB were already past their sell by date and Will Smith hadn’t been raking in those BIG box office dollars for a few years. It may not seem such a big deal but the Hollywood game relies on almost constant movement…
I WAS STILL NOT PREPARED, I KNEW WHAT HAPPENS AND I STILL WAS NOT PREPARED.
