Flick Pick: MIB3

(Columbia, 2012)

Marred by an ill-advised sequel to the original (the less said about it, the better) Men In Black 3 returned the franchise to still watchable after 15 years, chiefly by the inspired casting of adding Josh Brolin as a screamingly perfect Agent K, doing Tommy Lee Jones in his twenties probably better than TLJ himself did originally. The side characters are fun, seeing the take on NYC in the 60s is well-done, the cliff-hanging suspense is real, and the ending kills.
If they want to do another one of these this good, I'm game. If they don't, they should leave it be.
