Men in Black
Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe.
Men in Black follows the exploits of agents Kay and Jay, members of a top-secret organization established to monitor and police alien activity on Earth. The two Men in Black find themselves in the middle of the deadly plot by an intergalactic terrorist who has arrived on Earth to assassinate two ambassadors from opposing galaxies. In order to prevent worlds from colliding, the MiB must track down the terrorist and prevent the destruction of Earth. It's just another typical day for the Men in Black.
As a big fan of sci-fi, I can say that this was an absolute delight. Men in Black is not a film of epic proportions and never tries to be one, it's simple (at least comparing to most sci-fi/alien films we know), soft and effortlessly enjoyable and the fact that it's a "little blockbuster" (I know that this sounds contradictory, but I actually think it makes sense) is what makes it one of the most delightful rides out there, it's fun and never loses its rythm throughout the 90 minutes runtime because of a clever pacing and precise editing, it feels focused and is not too ambitious, director Barry Sonnenfeld is well aware of his limits and that's why it…
Remember when Will Smith used to write a 'song' for every movie he was in?
Yeah... So... Uh... That actually happened.
Clever, exciting, imaginative and funny, Men in Black is everything you want a sci-fi comedy to be. Yet, those words fail to encompass my total love for this film. Still the best in the trilogy (in my humble view) it has enough wit and action to keep you entertained for decades. Every time I see it, I just wanna take the first best plane to New York and join their ranks for some good ol' alien-busting. But alas, the MIB is but a fictional organization.
At any rate, it entertains to stellar degrees, and is also one of the movies that launched Will Smith into international fame (or should I say intergalactic). His hilarious interplay with Agent K - played…
You don't exist; you were never even born. Anonymity is your name. Silence your native tongue. You're no longer part of the System. You're above the System. Over it. Beyond it. We're "them." We're "they." We are the Men in Black.
Men in Black is actually a very dark comic book series first published in 1990 about an organization that investigates aliens and paranormal activities on the surface, but actually have sinister motives to manipulate the world. They would also conceal their existence by using a neuralyzer to wipe out people's memories, but when that wasn't an option they would use any means necessary to protect their secrets including eliminating witnesses. Of course this is perfect material for a…
Haven't seen this all the way through in years. Very fun movie, and the scene with 'Frank the Pug' gets me every freakin' time. Still as funny as when I first saw it.
Saw this for the first time in many years on TV in a hospital room last night and was instantly reminded of what a delight it is.
Every moment of MEN IN BLACK feels classic, gloriously whimsical and still freshly fascinating. It's perfectly cast and impeccably well-rendered, with an unmistakably '90s feel.
This movie is wonderful.
Love this film. Makes me laugh. Kids enjoyed it too as it was their first watch
Give the kid a weapon.
I remember enjoying this movie when I first saw it in 1997 upon it's initial release and I also remember seeing and detesting the sequels. I try not to be negative or hateful in my life. The world is a big place and there is choice and space enough for all. I like what I like and try not worry too much about the other fellow. In the many years since I first watched MIB, I have grown to loathe Will Smith.
I used to watch a lot of TV, but these days it's mostly just older movies that I watch. That is what I know, movies, and that is all I try to judge people in movies upon. I'm…
Planning on watching all 3 in the near future

This film is about a bunch of guys wearing black suits.
will smith king of fashion
I could never get into these.
Even viewing it for the first time almost 20 years after release, Men in Black proves to be consistently and often gut-bustingly funny, clever, and original. There's no forced love interest to slow down the story, and Smith and Jones are endlessly likable. It's effects, both practical and CGI hold up remarkably well also.
Will September be the month when I finally review a movie? I don't think so. But I love doing these…
I do not recommend a vast majority of these films. In fact, a good 80-90% of these are anywhere from…
