Default Men in Black III

I saw the midnight premiere this morning and man was it good! I mean, yes it's a science-fiction comedy series and is in no way worthy of an Oscar, but it is worthy of being almost as good as the original film. You almost wished that they would have just skipped the sequel and make this one instead. You should check it out. I wasn't disappointed and just love a good laugh with a good story. Gone are those annoying worms, gone is the pug and gone is the product placement all over the MIB headquarters. It's just a film that you could tell had focus on character development and an actual point to the plot, rather than the second one, which was just practically a rehashing of the first movie.

This one doesn't play it safe like the second one did and it seems the director knew part two was just made for profit. This is pretty good and entertaining. Check it out at least once! I'd love to get your thoughts! However, somehow I doubt any of you guys will be interested in seeing this, but that's just me.

Saw it 2 days ago and found it great. Watch this if you enjoy time travel, parallel universe quantum theory, or human spaceflight

Unfortunately, Quark you're right when it comes to me. I'm not a fan even of the first and have never even seen the second so at best this is a down the line rental or possibly even a 'never get round to it at all' one.

I'm a huge fan of the MIB franchise, and I gotta say, this was a pretty good movie, though it did feel a bit short. I DID miss the other minor characters though, like Jeebs and Frank the Pug. The worm guys were in the movie, but only in 2 brief scenes. Another thing I missed was another Will Smith end credits theme... it just seemed odd hearing someone ELSE play a MIB song, other than Will Smith, and I hated the fact that after a few minutes, that end credit song turned into Dubstep crap. Overall, it was a REALLY fun movie, and the end kinda left me puzzled.

Saw both of the films prior; liked the first one at the time. Second one didn't do anything new for me, and I find I've never even bothered to re-watch the first film since. My VHS letterbox copy would be 15 years old by now and it hasn't been played since '99 at the latest.

The end reminded me so much of Assignment: Earth XD

I like the MIB movies. I'll probably wait for a rental on this one, but I will see it eventually.

Excellent casting.
