Men in Black III - movie review

From May 29, 2012

Score: B
I saw Men in Black 3 on 5-28-12.
I won't describe the plot here. If you've seen the first two, you'll know the kind of craziness that you're in for.
MIB3 is pretty good. Not as cool and fresh as the original (which came out 15 years ago now, if you can believe that), but it's a lot better than the lackluster MIB2. The second one sort of seemed like they were going through the motions a bit too much. MIB3 seems like the filmmakers/cast are having fun again.
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are great as always. Josh Brolin does a great job playing the younger Agent K. Emma Thompson is sort of stuck in the film for no reason and her character goes nowhere. Jemaine Clement (I had no idea who that was before seeing the film) is unrecognizable as the main villain Boris the Animal. He's a really crazy baddy with some strange, awkward moments interacting with others (and his past self). Some cool cameos of Will Arnet as an annoying agent in the 60s and Bill Hader as Andy Warhol. I really liked the character of Griffin (played by Michael Stuhlbarg), an alien that can see all possible futures at the same instant, and is never really quite sure which one will come to be. Titus later said that initially he thought the character was played by Elijah Wood, which I could totally see and thought was completely hilarious.
