Men in Black 3

When I first heard MIB3 was coming out I was excited and worried at the same time.  The first MIB was fun and entertaining. Its sequel was dumb and boring, so I was hoping the third one will be better than the last one.

In Men in Black 3, Smith’s character, Agent J, travels back in time to 1969 to save his partner’s life, Agent K, played by Tommy Lee Jones.  The story is much more interesting and a bit more intricate, and seeing Josh Brolin play a young Tommy Lee Jones is the highlight of the movie.  Overall the movie is much more enjoyable than the last. Similar to the first, MIB3 is fun and entertaining again, but this time with an emotional ending that makes it all worth it for those who’ve seen the previous two movies.

Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

I Am Legend


After a genetic cure for cancer ends up destroying the humans it tried to cure Robert Neville, played by Will Smith, becomes the last survivor living in New York City. Neville’s only companion is a German Shepard name Sam. He spends each day gathering food and trying to find a cure. And at noon he waits out on the docks hoping if there are other survivors out there that have heard his distress radio call.

This movie is a one-man show with Smith, and he’s not only trying to survive in the post-apocolyptic world but trying to keep his insanity. Being alone is the least of his problems. The virus once engineered to cure cancer kills the majority of its victims, but turns the remaing victims to zombie/vampire like creatures that attacks at night. The atmosphere of the movie is unsettling and Smith playing the only character in the movie is on par with another great actor who played a similar role in Castaway, Tom Hanks.
