It’s movie review day here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Today we’re seeing the movie, Men in Black 3.
Here’s the trailer:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDPYq4BFHBI]
The third installment of Men in Black is finally here, and it’s a keeper! If this movie was a guy, your bff would be nudging your elbow telling you not to let him get away. The first movie in the series was funny and the pairing of the straight-laced Tommy Lee Jones as J with never serious agent J (Will Smith) was comedic genius. Combine that with aliens, cool guns, and a ticking clock to save the planet from destruction, and you have a great movie. The second movie was fun, but it felt like it got away from the characters and focused more on the aliens. This third movie takes you back to the good old days. It’s character driven as Agent J must go back in time to save K’s life. And oh my gosh, Josh Brolin plays a young K. His acting was seriously brilliant. He had every movement, tone of voice, and facial expression of Tommy Lee Jones. You really thought you were seeing a younger version of K. Actors often take on roles of portraying a real life person. They immerse themselves in their world and try to become them on-screen. That’s difficult, but none of them ever have to play the part in the same movie with the original person. It was impressive.
I don’t want to give away the ending, but it surprisingly makes you want to cry. And it ends the trilogy perfectly.
I fell crazy in love with him the first time we met. He was funny, adventurous, and, well, brave. I forget exactly why we broke up. No, that’s a lie. I remember it vividly. We had just gotten seated at a fantastic restaurant when his phone rang. I gave him my evil eye and practically dared him to answer it. “It’s work, baby,” he said, charming me with that goofy lopsided grin of his. I listened to his side of the conversation and swore I could have heard someone on the other end say something about saving the world. I also noticed the voice was a woman’s.
“I’ve gotta go. I’m sorry.”
“If you go, we’re through.”
He left me sitting there at the table alone.
The second time we dated, I knew it would never work. He was still way into his career, but did get the feeling he wasn’t enjoying it as much. Probably because it had taken over his life. But that’s just my opinion.
Yesterday, I saw him. It had been a while, but he still looked good. Handsome. Sexy. Muscular. Same goofy grin that made me fall for him. He can still make me laugh. And I couldn’t help it. There was something different about him this time. He seemed like the chip on his shoulder was gone, and he was ready to finally commit. Don’t they say, the third time’s the charm?
“What do you say?” he asked me. “You up for a happily ever after?”
Of course, I said yes.
The Verdict: Just a reminder of how we rank movies here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos:
One Star = Walk of shame. I was in last night’s dress, carrying my shoes as I rushed off. I can’t believe I wasted my time on him and pray no one I know sees me.
Two Stars = Bad date. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have any chemistry. Maybe he just wasn’t my type. I probably won’t answer if he calls.
Three Stars =Hookup. We had a great night together. Don’t know if it will be more than that, but it was sure fun while it lasted.
Four Stars = Stalking him. What a night! We danced, we kissed. Now if I could just get him to call me.
Five Stars = Happily ever after. I love him! I want to marry him, have his babies, and live happily ever after.
It’s a Johnny Depp Movie. If you appreciate him, go see the movie.
