    Men in Black 3


    I enjoyed MEN IN BLACK (boxd.it/1ecUT5 ), but was very disappointed by the second film (boxd.it/1gsP8t ), so I was not sure if watching the third installment would be worthwhile. My son convinced me that we should give it a try. I am glad that we did.

    Film School Dropouts 2019 - Week 13 - Editor - Daniel Mandell
