Men in Black: International Delivers
F. Gary Gray continues the entertaining series with Men in Black: International.* Aside from getting to see Chris Hemsworth on screen,** I totally went for the setup of this film and Molly/Agent M’s story.*** There are aliens and fight scenes and cool hardware and all the things one would expect from the franchise.
The verdict: Good
Cost: $1.80 via Redbox
Where watched: at home
Consider also watching:
*I’d had a hard day, and I wanted only to be entertained. My expectations were low, and this film easily cleared that bar.
**Always a treat, and even more so when the movie makes fun of his eye-candy status with in-movie jokes plus a winking Thor reference.
***I like someone who is a striver, and Tessa Thompson captured the excitement and uncertainty of being the new person at the dream job.
****I think I’ve only seen this third one. But you don’t have to watch them in order or anything. Another plus.

Favorite IMDB trivia item:
The MiB Agents have been wearing the same standard issue Hamilton Ventura watch since the beginning. The iconic Ventura watch was first released in 1957.
(I googled. It’s about $875 for that watch.)
