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…
Barry Sonnenfeld has an affinity with black. From "Men In Black" to "The Adams Family" the color plays a big part in both the tone and context of his films with it's darkly comic black humor.
MIB was a sharply written science fiction film based on Lowell Cunningham's subversive comics of the early nineties. With a more comedic take to proceedings, Sonnenfeld brought together two opposites in the guise of Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith and made it work to perfection. Jones's wry, almost sarcastic tone was balanced by Smith's more obvious comedic roots for a film with energy and real star quality.
The MIB in question are a clandestine organisation that monitor extraterrestrial visitors on Earth and police…
The perfect blockbuster.
Men in Black isn't just a typical alien movie, it's a hilariously creative adventure with some great characters and surprisingly good charisma between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
Both the CGI and movie holds up fine today. Had a decent amount of laughs and Tommy Lee Jones is always awesome!
An updated "Ghostbusters" comedy with the action cranked up a couple notches.
Tommy Lee Jones as the wise mentor and Will Smith as the talented amateur are as good as they can be. Rip Torn is delightful. Linda Fiorentino is fun but slightly underused.
Music by Danny Elfman is evocative of "Twilight Zone," "Dragnet," surf music and a dozen other references floating through.
The original is the best. I've seen this film so many times since my childhood. I still enjoy it immensely and can safely say it's one of my favourite movies.
It is one of the best Sci-Fi comedies out there, and still holds its weight against modern CGI filled movies. If you're gonna watch all of the MiB movies, watch this one first, it is the best of the 3.
The Men in Black are an agency specializing in extra-terrestrial matters and K (Tommy Lee Jones) is just one of their agents. After an encounter with an alien, a man who soon goes by the name J (Will Smith) is recruited to help stop an oncoming war.
I've had the hardest time figuring out exactly what it is I liked about this movie. I don't think it's anything spectacular but as far as being an entertaining movie, it serves its purpose. I guess what works most about it is Will Smith, who spends most of the movie as the naïve, comedic counterpart to Tommy Lee Jones' serious and well versed character. They're both great but Smith is particularly entertaining, both…
Still the best of the "Men In Black" movies. If you ever get an urge to watch one, just see this.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
