VIEWED: Men In Black 3

My recommendation for this one was...

"As a trailer, MIB3 has all the fun, familiarity and twists to indicate that it'll be just as entertaining as the others, and Josh Brolin as a young K looks hilariously dead pan. I will see this one on a big screen."

Will Smith is always good.  Tommy Lee Jones is always Tommy Lee Jones, which is good.   Josh Brolin was awesome doing a perfect impersonation of Tommy Lee Jones, which was good.

Jemaine Clement, who plays the super villain, Boris the Animal, is freaking hilarious.  He was hilarious in Flight of the Conchords and Dinner for Schmucks.  All I can say about Flight of the Conchords is: watch season one only.  It's like making up music videos about the mundane and playing them in your head while in a waiting room. Brilliant.

Given what this franchise is, I thought the ending was a bit too emotionally manipulative.  You don't watch MIB to get emotional or role your eyes... I did the latter of course.

The Verdict: While MIB3 had all the right elements for an entertaining addition to the franchise, it was like anticipating an explosion from dynamite and only hearing a fire-cracker.
