Kind of amazing how it barely surpassed Avengers on opening weekend when Avengers has been out FOR A MONTH! I'd buy some Disney stock.

Finally saw the avengers this weekend. Fucking fantastic.

Also, the hulk/loki scene was one of the best things I've ever seen.

I didn't realize this but apparently MiB3 had a colossal budget. $55 million might have been a great opening for any other movie but is extremely disappointing considering they spent a reported $375 million making and marketing it.

Me too and I agree about the scene(and movie). Fucking movie gold. Someone needs to make an android screensaver out of it.

If only Will Smith had done a song for it. Such a missed opportunity.

Given how awesome MIB was, I was unsurprised to see MIB2. Given how much that one sucked, I was quite surprised to see MIB3. I was hoping this one would actually be ok. I'll still probably see it >_>

Don't bother. Shadow of itself. It had a lot of writing trouble, and it shows :\

Noooo...oh well. Guess I can cross that one off the list to watch. I wasn't really digging the trailers anyway.

What? Seriously!?! I thought it was on par with the first. I never was really a huge MIB fan, but I did enjoy this one a lot. Josh Brolin was awesome!

Personally, I wouldn't. The trouble with megacorporations like Disney is even a ROI of a few hundred million is a drop in the bucket.

Don't know that I would take investing advice from me, though - I day trade the VIX, and swing trade 3x leveraged ETFs.

Saw it here in Japan (and was very very surprised to see a global release date) and it was certainly a hell of a lot better than the second film. Mind you the theatres here are a hell of a lot better than the ones in North America anyways so that might have had something to do with it ^_^

I can't remember one thing about the 2nd one, so it must've been bad. MIB3 is certainly not on par with the first one tho. It's a passable edition that will lay the series to rest, imo.

***spoilers***

The whole point of the film was the deepening of the relationship between J and K, which both undermines the plot of the first film, where J is picked by K not because of some emotional back-story but because he's an original thinker. And then, the whole plot of J's father being killed because of K... it just fell flat in the end.

The only thing that was clever in the entire film was the idea of a 'time jump' and the dialogue of the 5th dimensional character.

Sooo many plotholes from there. Like, why would J even be in MIB if K had been killed back then. He simply wouldn't be. And why do the Brogodogians (or w/e) attack at that point in the future after the timeline changes? They could just attack in the past, ala the original plan, and there would be no earth. If they couldn't attack in the past, why was there any hurry to get the arc-net into space?

Lastly, the silly action scene at the end where J gets hit by the four barbs then goes back in time to dodge them. Seems clever until you think about it. Acts are generally action->reaction. Thus, if J dodged the first barb, the alien, seeing this, would likely have shot in an entirely different pattern. In truth, J would've had to go back in time for each successive barb in order to be sure of its new position after dodging the first. But that would've been boring, and really assumes that he didn't take one to a vital spot in the meantime. And if these barbs are being shot fast enough to pierce bone, pin people to walls, and generally kill, how is he able to dodge at all? And beyond that, why did going back in time remove the first 4 barbs that hit him??? And why weren't there two J's when he went back in time? One with barbs and one without? And why, when he kicked the alien off the tower finally, did he not simply pull out his time-travel device too (we know he has one) and go somewhere? And why did hitting ground not kill him?
