  Reviews for 'Men in Black II' and 'Spider-Man' | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
MIB II is faithful to its source film, which in turn sprang from a comic book.
MIB II is geared to tap that popularity while costing $7 million less and running 10 minutes shorter.
MIB II also builds to a big finishing kick with fitting fireworks.

  Men in Black - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are various types of MIB encounters, but they typically follow a pattern: after a presumably credible witness reports or witnesses a UFO sighting, the witness is visited by a man or men (they are often said to come in threes) who are often dressed in fl suits, lending the reports their name.
Some versions of the MIB conspiracy theory lead some to believe that the MIB's odd mannerisms and dress are due to the fact that they are aliens or alien-human hybrids, and that their job is to eliminate physical evidence of alien involvement on earth.
Rojcewicz noted that many men in fl accounts parallel tales of people encountering the devil: Neither men in fl nor the devil is quite human, and witnesses often discover this fact midway through an encounter.

 Men in Black (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Men in Black is a 1997 science fiction comedy action film directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, starring Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith and Vincent D'Onofrio.
MiB agents wear sunglasses and dark suits, and appear at UFO landing sites, similar to the reported (but unproven) real-world Men In Black.
Instead of intimidating or threatening witnesses, the MiB use devices known as Neuralizers to wipe their memories and suggest more mundane causes to the encounter (to the amazement of Agent J, such explanations are uniformly and horribly bland).

In UFO conspiracy theories, the term Men in Black (MIBs), also known as Men in Grey, are alleged to be men dressed in fl suits claiming to be government agents who attempt to harass or threaten UFO witnesses into silence.
The men suggest—or the witnesses assume—that they are government agents, and often flash convincing-looking badges and demand that the witness recant their story or hand over photographs or physical evidence of a UFO.
The depth of the conspiracy theory leads some to believe that the MIB's odd mannerisms and dress are due to the fact that they are aliens or alien-human hybrids, and that their job is to eliminate physical evidence of alien involvement on earth.

 Men In Black - Crystalinks
The Men In Black - or MIB's as they are sometimes called are a group that supposedly show up to harass or intimidate witnesses of UFO sightings and related phenomena the government does not want the public to know about.
The first reported occurrence of Men in Black was allegedly Albert K. Bender, the editor of a flying saucer publication called the Space Review.
According to John Keel, the MIB often state that they are representatives of the Nation of the Third Eye.

 Men In Black
Witnesses who report MIB sightings often describe "foreign looking" men with exotic features; it's as if they're "from elsewhere." They look "Oriental" or "Indian" and have "deeply tanned" skin, although sometimes their complexions are extremely pale.
Another MIB is initially perplexed when shown the strange terrestrial implement we know as the ballpoint pen, but then becomes gleefully spastic as he absconds into the street with the prize.
MIBs frequently speak tortured English with outlandish accents; in some accounts they don't move their lips when they communicate, suggesting a knack for telepathy, while in other encounters they speak like "machines." When it comes to the MIB, the subtext is always "We're not from around here."

 All Things Deep - Articles - For Black Women, Men Do Leave
That being said, against the backdrop of sobering statistics on fl men incarcerated or in the criminal justice system, the lagging 'sadness' of the prospects for fl males means that (as children), there is a tendency for fl boys to be declared the 'victim' before they are out of the cradle.
For fl men, the scenario of interracial dating also stems from the fear of low expectations prompted by fl community, ironically, as self-defense mechanism to defend against disappointment and blatant discrimination.
The swarthiness and candor of the jive-talking fl man can be very attractive to other women who want to know what the "other side is like." Black females, on the other hand, (like most western women) continue their focus around the home, particularly in roles caring for younger siblings or extended family.

 UFO Evidence : Men in Black (MIB)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
One of the most unusual aspects of the UFO mystery is the Men in Black (MIB) phenomenon.
In 1953, American UFO research pioneer Al Bender was visited by three strange men, dressed entirely in fl, who transported him to their craft but warned him against making any of their revelations public.
The most intriguing and controversial sideshow skirting the edges of UFO research today is the question of the "silencers," or the mysterious "Men in Black." There is a strong subliminal appeal in these accounts of visits by mysterious dark-suited figures (I have been visited myself, as have others I've known) attempting to silence UFO witnesses.

Perfectly unflappable, never surprised by the stray eye stalk or tentacle, the Men in Black simply go about their world-weary business as if this were "The French Connection," which is one of the film's conscious inspirations, along with the television series "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."
So here come the crazily level-headed K and J (Will Smith, the only man in American movies who can easily address a space alien as "Baby") and their Ray-Bans (which, in one of the film's sly little flourishes, are actually necessary for banning certain rays).
Certain sets, like the pawnshop lighted by Edward Hopper and the vast Eero Saarinen-inspired Men in Black headquarters, are studied and elegant to the point of distraction.

 Men in Black II (2002)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In 1997, the original `Men in Black' struck a nerve with movie audiences by showing that even a big budget blockbuster, heavily loaded down with state-of-the-art, computer-generated special effects, could still manage to seem light on its feet.
Well, five years have passed and we now have `Men in Black II' to confirm what most of us suspected all along: that works that rely on `uniqueness' as their prime selling point are rarely ever able to duplicate their success a second time around.
In fact, if `Men in Black II' shows us anything, it is that just because something MOVES doesn't mean that it can't bore us at the same time.
