Spook Rock: Men In Black (1997)

Will Smith, fomerly known as the Fresh Prince, released his first solo CD, under his own name, in 1997. The first single was also the theme to the hit movie, "Men In Black", co-starring Tommy Lee Jones, whom you'll see in the intro portion of the following video, an intro that was often edited off when it aired on MTV back in the day.

With Columbia releasing the 3rd "Men In Black" movie in 2012, some ten years or so after the last film, let's take a step back in time, and revisit "Men In Black". The bit with Will trying to teach a CGI monster how to dance is worth the price of admission alone!

The first movie was fun, and the second a let down. Now there's a THIRD one coming?


After more than a decade since the first sequel was a failure, why is Hollywood so desperate to dredge this stuff up?

Might as well make belated sequels to "Casablanca", "Spartacus" and "Ben Hur" while we're at it.

The reason they're making a 3rd movie is:

1. You have a niche/genre audience that actually follows the series, regardless of how badly the last film fared, and Sony wants to attract that audience, although the lead time between films may be a killer.

2. Sony's just desperate to get another summer blockbuster out of Will Smith. It's money, y'see.
