Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith in the movie Men in Black

J and K the Men in Black


Men in Black was a popular 1997 sci-fi comedy movie with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. I took these notes not too long after release, back when the movie was still fresh in the Earthling’s consciousness.

They play with the movie’s “highest top secret” schtick, so in the end it’s mostly stats. Which might not be the best now that the movie was 20+ years ago…


  • Real Name: None.
  • Marital Status: None.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Men in Black.
  • Base Of Operations: Men in Black HQ.
  • Height: Average Weight: Nothing special. Age: Banal
  • Eyes: Nondescript Hair: Standard (w/a common haircut).

MiBs are the nation’s finest, toughened up with a special, highly adaptable training and weird alien gizmos. Are we feeling safer now ?

“I am just a figment of your imagination.” [FLASH]

“Humanoid ? You wish he was ! Bring a sponge.”
