Typically when a franchise resorts to time travel its time to pack up shop and call it a day, especially considering a decade absence from the screen. Thankfully, the new version of MIB exceeded my expectations and ended up as arguably the best in the series. Tommy Lee Jones is getting a bit long in the tooth and too busy trying to get jiggy in a movie theatre with Merryl Streep (Hope Springs reference), so the time came for a new face. Josh Brolin plays a younger “K” very accurately and gives the franchise new life. Unfortunately, I’m not sure it would be easy to write him into another movie. That said, the story and production of the newest film gives some excitement for MIB 4 if one is ever made.
