Time traveling Men in Black Agent J, played by Will Smith, takes a journey of discovery into the past. Boris the Animal has escaped from the moon prison built especially for him and has gone back in time to kill Agent K before he has had the opportunity to capture him, taking Boris’s hand in the process. In order to save his partner Agent K, played by Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith has to take a leap if faith and travel to the past. J is the only agent who has been unaffected by time rift change.
The CGI and make-up/prosthetics are amazingly good, almost seamlessly entwined together to create an experience that completely engulfed me in the movie. Will Smith gives a good performance which captivates audiences through a mixture of comedy and emotion. Not only is he the main part of the movie but after two movies there’s still more to be learned about him. Boris the animal, played by Jemaine Clement, is a truly amazing bad guy. He’s creepy, he’s scary, and he’s perfectly evil from beginning to close. Allowing the beautiful Nichole Scherzinger who play his girlfriend die on the moon during his escape concretes his badass persona. This is one film where the CGI really did not bother me. Some scenes surprised me with how much CGI they had that I could not distinguish.
The “The Amazing Spider-man Second Screen” app came out and I was thrilled to have been able to explore it and learn about the behind-the-scenes of the movie.
Now “Men in Black 3 Movie Touch” app completely took me by surprise. Sony has been hard at work bringing a fuller experience of the world created by the filmmakers of the films we enjoy so much. The movie screen app allows instant access while watching the movie on any of the iPad family. Fun facts, actor bios, and much more pop-up on the bottom of the iPad screen as the movie plays. Being able to access it instantly as it comes up is incredibly amazing. Clicking on an actors face brings up the bios and lists of movies that they have come up in.
The two most amazing parts of this app is being able to share clips from the film and searching for specific dialogue or parts of a movie by typing in keywords. Being able to share clips on a social network like Facebook is incredible. Now we can discuss a movie and specifically point out the best or our favorite scenes even if the person we are discussing with has not seen it. Ever wanted to watch a specific section of a movie but didn’t remember where in the movie it was? Well Sony found an answer for that. As long as you remember a key aspect of the scene you want you’ll be able to find it. It’s incredible. Not only does this app allow for the person wanting to see the behind-the-scenes a new way to do it while interacting with the film but also an amazing way to watch a film for those who care more about watching the movie.
The movie gets 4 out of 5 Popcorns. The app gets a 5 out of 5 Popcorns. Every time I watch this film over again I laugh and discover something new about the film and every time I use the app I’m able to search deeper on how it was made.
