An excellently crafted third outing with the MIB.
Josh Brolin was amazing as a young Agent K. Just absolutely, 100% nailed it.
Wait, time travel makes sense to me, but the film’s climactic battle doesn’t. *Wifey fix* Oh, so traveling back in time less than 10 minutes or so doesn’t create a major paradox where you occupy the same physical space as yourself 10 minutes ago, but functions more like the Omega-13 device in Galaxy Quest where you basically hit the Undo button, but only the person pushing the button on the device remembers what’s going on, regardless of who else travels.
And I’m desperate to understand why Agent K was so cold to Agent J in the original normal timeline. Is it really as simple as the fact that Boris lives and justice wasn’t really served? Wifey seems to think so and I’m inclined to accept it after watching it a second time.

So we just spent the last 3 nights watching the Men In Black saga and it’s not like there’s a whole bunch of stuff they deliberately picked up on from the first two and finished off in the third. Which is not to say that’s a bad thing, I just expected that I had missed something in the first two regarding elements of the third other than the characters and the way they interacted. Or something. 🙂
