Men in Black
In this sci-fi buddy comedy favorite, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) is a member of a top-secret organization that has been tracking and regulating extra-terrestrial activity on Earth for over 40 years. When K finds himself in need of a new partner, brash NYPD detective James Edwards (Will Smith) joins the Men in Black as Agent J. Armed with space-age technology and razor-sharp wits, K and J investigate a series of close encounters and uncover the deadly plot of one particularly nasty visitor (Vincent D’Onofrio) who threatens to destroy the planet. (Barry Sonnenfeld, 1997, PG-13, 98 min.)
This film will be followed by a screening of Galaxy Quest.
Twenty years after the cancellation of their show, the stars of the Galaxy Quest television series still cling to their roles as the courageous crew of the NSEA Protector, scraping a living through sci-fi conventions and ribbon-cutting ceremonies. When a distressed interstellar race under attack from a reptilian warlord mistakes the show’s transmissions for reality, the crew of has-beens is unwittingly recruited to save the day. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must give the performances of their lives in this rollicking adventure spoof starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Daryl Mitchell and Sam Rockwell. (Dean Parisot, 1999, PG, 103 min.)
