    Saw this last night. Wasn't by any means groundbreaking, or even close to holding a candle to the original, but it wasn't all bad, or by any means a slog. Started out a lot stronger than some sections in the middle, and some of the action was pretty cool. Overall: Fun, but not amazing. Tessa was great.

    Semi-related, this is from the writer of MIB 1. That’s insane.

    I’m two of them, both NPNOWGaug. It’s pretty hilarious how many journalists did the same thing. But eh, a lazy movie gets a lazy phrase.

    Oh goose Supporter

    I think they only said H changed after the incident 50 times before saying who he was before

    having Chris Hemsworth exemplify male white privilege and Tessa getting shit done made this worthwhile I guess, gonna have to put her in any movie so she can be fully utilized

    also what happens if there are 27 agents or there's a Molly and a Mike

    Emma Thompson is in two movies this week and in both her protege is named Molly lol

    I also kept thinking about Tom Delonge with Molly, what if he's right bout aliens and we keep laughing at him

    Yeah, this might not be getting a sequel.

    Can’t imagine what the advertising budget must have been for this, especially the tie-ins with the Finals. Honestly, I don’t think anyone’s gonna be too upset this won’t get a sequel.

    The original trilogy ended well enough with MIB3 and I think its success skated by on nostalgia and Will Smith. They should have just kept it at that or at least tried a new angle with these characters. They didn’t and need to just let it die.

    Wonder if people at Sony are thinking "man, maybe we should've let that MIB/Jump Street crossover be a thing"

    Not surprising. Producers like Parkes feel they have enough clout to ride the coattails of past successes and make better decisions than established and well-liked directors/writers, despite his track record. Like, okay cool dude, you wrote two mediocre movies that haven’t aged well... and that gives you priority because you’re an old white dude who’s pals with Spielberg???

    He’s been a part of some excellent docs, but when it comes to fictional films, the dude is a junkyard heap. Producers like him can’t face the music and accept they don’t know as much as they (or their resumes) suggest. I feel badly for the people who worked on this; it’s embarrassing but all-too-common these days in Hollywood.

    That idea the proposed original screenplay was based on sounds like it would have been pretty fun
