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…
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.
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…
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.
A classic Will Smith film.
Men In Black was one of the first DVDs I ever owned as a child and so I have a lot of positive nostalgic feelings for this movie. I remember both Smith and Jones being funny - they still are - and I remember the alien characters being weird and scary - they're still weird.
The world is created pretty well. The jokes are crafted pretty well. There are some more noticeable flaws now that I've grown up (the romantic subplots, for one), but nothing that ruined my positive outlook of the film. Will Smith owns it with charisma and youthful energy.
The first two agents you see in Men in Black are old white men.
At the close of the film, the last two agents you see are young; one is black and one is a woman.
YOU SEE THIS? N Y P D
MEANS I WILL
Smith and Jones shine in this sci-fi comedy that still holds up as an entertaining example of the genre.
Everyone loves it, I have nothing new to add. It's creative, hilarious, the chemistry between the leads is excellent, and it's got some incredible production design. It should've been longer though.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Men In Black is a deep conceptual piece, released in 1997 by Sony Pictures, it stars the exploits of plucky young Will Smith as he goes to the place. It is the best movie of all time, better than most movies, except Men In Black II. Which is actualy kind of worse, Men In Black II is not as good.
I saw this in the theater originally, and I guess it must have been the second one that left a bad taste in my mouth, because I feel this holds up really. Just a nice, compact, tightly-scripted popcorn movie that still retained that late-80s/early-90s-sized character arc.
I would watch a female remake of any movie. In honor of the new Ghostbusters, here are some suggestions for…
