4. "I Seen It A Few Weeks Ago And I Have To Say I Enjoyed It" In response to Reply # 0
I'm bringing up this post cause I was surprised to not see it on the first few pages even though it's been out for a while but I thought it was going to be bad so I waited until it came to the budget theater in my town to check it out and I was surprised how much I liked it.
I like how know we have the ability to do great digital effects and the aliens even more lifelike to the point they have their own look and differences if they were more than one race of aliens.
I didn't really care for Chris Hemsworth's character much but I liked how he was kind of suppose to play a playboy agent with an big ego, so I'm not sure how much of that was the actor verses the script.
I loved Tessa Thompson's character a lot, this was a really well put together storyline, no movie is perfect, and yes it was times I was bored but almost every movie has one or two minutes of useless scenes to me, overall not once did I missed Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones' character, Agent "O" (Emma Thompson) kind of filled that gap and did well.
Not sure how well or bad this did in the theaters but I wouldn't mind another MIB movie, hopefully starring Agent "M" again.

Tessa was supposed to mirror's Will's fish out of water/ astonishment to be introduced to the MIB universe.
But she had no one showing her the ropes really. Hemsowroth and Neeson did not fulfill the TLJ or Rip Torn roles in any understandable way.
I'd imagine for many people/kids this would be their first MIB movie- and it didn't really build the world at all.
Hemsworth is so vacant/bland he's worthless. (Kind of explained by being neuralized - but not really.) He didn't even seem competent.
Why the fuck do you have the most powerful weapon in the universe and you don't have it in your pocket, you just leave it laying out for anyone to grab? Just stupid.
Kumail's alien seemed to be put in there to try to make what was happening slightly understandable - but he's never used as a real character - just as a joke machine until he ultimately saves everyone.
I didn't HATE the movie - but it's no part 1 or part 3.
Also in 4k you could see the ladies nipples get hard every time they had a 20 second gaze at Hemsworth.
