Men in Black 3 (2012)

IMDb plot summary: Agent J travels in time to M.I.B.'s early days in 1969 to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history.
Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. Starring Will Smith, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, Jemaine Clement, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Oh, this was a beautiful contrast to the second movie, which was terrible all the way through. This suffers from some sequelitis and some tired jokes, but overall, this movie is almost as entertaining as a standalone time travel comedy. The newly-introduced characters are great, especially Michael Stuhlbarg as Griffin - what a creative, entertaining character! The movie is much, much, much smarter than the previous installment, and made for a very fun movie night. Way to redeem the series a bit. 3.5 stars.

Flickchart: #696 out of 1919, below Ramona and Beezus and above A Serious Man.
