Men in Black 3

Men in Black 3
If you liked the first two, you should like this one. Action, comedy, wacky gadgets, Will Smith being snarky and talking too much, Tommy Lee Jones being gruff and deadpan, ridiculous word-ending plot – it has all those things. Plus it has Josh Brolin channeling Tommy Lee Jones, and a quite endearing macguffin.
It’s silly fun, enthusiastically so. I liked it.
On a related note, after a night’s reflection I decided to re-grade Prometheus to #4. MIB3 then replaces it as my new #4 partially on the basis of having a better plot (/snark).
Note that the line below which I no longer recommend a movie is currently after Mirror, Mirror. It’s been a pretty good year so far.
1. The Avengers
2. The Cabin in the Woods
3. The Secret World of Arrietty
4. Men in Black 3
5. Prometheus
6. Hunger Games
7. The Lorax
8. Snow White and the Huntsman
9. Mirror, Mirror
10. John Carter
