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 Its chalk and cheese buddy cop dynamic and alien conspiracy setting is pure ‘90s meaning the whole film is a little outdated.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.
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.
Much like Tommy Lee Jones' face, this film shouldn't work, but it does.
Thoroughly entertaining and good, fluffy fun.
M biggest issue with this is I don't know whether or not it's taking itself seriously or trying o be stupid. Other than that, I had a fun time in Men In Black 3.
Great acting, terrible green screen, fascinating aliens. This is a perfect representation of everything I expect and love about Men in Black. Very fun.
A much needed return to form after the dreadful second outing and hopefully conclusion to the series, at least as far as Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones’ agent J and K are concerned. While the series has never been laugh out loud funny it still provides amusing scenes, inventive creature effects and two charismatic leads, or in the case of this time travelling entry, a third with Josh Brolin giving a phenomenally accurate performance as a young Agent K. The plot’s a convoluted mess and there’s a real dearth of strong, female characters but it’s an entertaining enough diversion for the most part.
Better than MIB II, but far behind the original.
Men in Black III é bem mais agradável do que o segundo filme da série, mas é também mais esquecível. O roteiro de Etan Cohen trata da vingaça de Boris the Animal (Jemaine Clement) um velho inimigo do Agente K (Tommy Lee Jones) que foge da prisão e viaja de volta no tempo para matar K na década de 60, forçando a voltar no tempo para salvar seu conpanheiro o agente J (Will Smith) se uni a K ainda jovem (Josh Brolin). O diretor Barry Sonnenfeld imprimi um estilo confuso e abobalhado e passa grande parte do tempo tentando administrar efeitos extravagantes modernos, um colosso para os olhos e uma afronta ao cérebro.
Plot ruins the movie...too unbelievable, if you know what I mean
This movie is one of the better third installments in any movie series. And in a lot of ways is way better than the second movie. Mainly because of the writing and humor, and there are no terrible female characters like in the first two films.
The plot revolves around time travel, but is surprisingly well done and not too confusing. Brolin does a really amazing and convincing job of playing a younger Tommy Lee Jones. Aside from excessive and stupid looking CGI, I don't have too many negatives to focus on. It would have been nice to see a cameo from Frank the pug, considering his roles in the first two movies. Also, the ending to this movie was pretty over-rated, but definitely great.
The time travel plot is slightly convoluted at times but doesn't seriously diminish enjoyment of this sci-fi action comedy which is entertaining and fun. Josh Brolin's impression of a young Tommy Lee Jones is spot on, Jermaine Clement makes an effective baddie and I liked Michael Stuhlbarg's supporting role. The 1960's is deliciously recreated, with Andy Warhol making a very funny appearance. There is a really poignant scene towards the end that I found moving and I wasn't expecting it. Overall I probably enjoyed Men In Black 3 just as much as the first film in the trilogy. I guess it helps having Ethan Coen as your screenwriter.
