Men In Black 3

Men In Black 3

Starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Rip Torn, Emma Thompson

Director: Barry Sonnenfeld

Release Date: 25 May 2012

 The first Men in Black movie is one of my favorite science fiction themed movie that is also a comedy. Will Smith was as smooth and charming as ever and Tommy Lee Jones delivered great one liners in his typical deadpan and caustic style.

 Then came Men in Black 2. I hated it. It had none of the whimsy and charm of the fists one and seemed like a chaotic and disjointed mess. I recently viewed that movie with an open mind to reevaluate it. I did end up liking it a little more than I originally had but I still didn’t care for it and have no desire to own it.

 Smith & Jones are back for another helping and I have my hopes up and I am keeping my fingers crossed. From examining the trailer I learn it is a time travel movie which is my very favorite theme to explore in the science fiction genre. Josh Brolin is playing a younger version of K, the character portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones, and his portrayal seems to be spot on. The special effects look great but what has me worried is that from some scenes in the trailer it looks a little messy and chaotic. Here ‘s hoping that is not the case!

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
