Re: Tessa Thompson says Men in Black should be changed to People in black eventually

I feel I would be amiss if I didn't mention the fact that Men in Black is an intergalactic agency that starting from Malibu Comics onwards, and especially as established in the cartoon series and film series, has many "Men" in Black agents that are neither male nor even human. The reason Earth's alien issues agency has so many human men in it is that they begin in 1940s Earth and recruited from military members, government agents and police officers in the 1940s. Every other planet aware of aliens has its own "Men in Black" style agency, needless to say the agents are not White Male Earthlings.

After going to BoxOfficeMojo and RottenTomatoes they're going to need to change it to Slim Pickins in Black because they're going to need to learn how to love the bomb.

Edit: The film franchise went off the rails when the actress who portrayed the County Medical Examiner Laura Weaver character, Linda Fiorentino didn't reprise her role and feature in the franchise as Agent L. The woman heading up the 4th MIB isn't up to snuff.

It is exceedingly fascinating to consider, and the entire premise reminds one of an excellently piquant line of dialogue from Carlo Emilio Gadda's murder mystery novel which roughly translates from the original Italian, That Awful Mess on the Via Merulana, from the protagonist who contends that when looking to uncover the reasons why for something, one should look at the interconnecting constellation of influencing points, and that it is never quite one thing.

Enrico Fermi's simple conversation in summer 1950 at Los Alamos with Edward Teller and Emil Konopinski was presumably over lunch and they discussed the idea of aliens in outer space, and wondering aloud, "Where are they?" or "Where is everybody?" the latter of which as a questioning phrase became the first-ever episode of Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone, is worth pondering.

Fermi's contention regarding the millenniums of years' required for travel versus the potential probability that at the very least some stars possess qualities resembling this planet on which we live with the possibility that a race of beings has formulated the means by which to make the interstellar trek seems like a plausible explanation unto itself. Having said that, scientist David Brin provides provocative insights relating to the nuances into which one could delve.

Michael Bodin wrote a solid book that I read a few years ago on the Fermi paradox when it was brand new. It convincingly established the point that when weighing the biological progression and evolution of life, communication seems to be of a vanishing potentiality. The book was hardly groundbreaking but it was reasonably well-balanced while almost single-mindedly pursuing the cosmological ramifications, which is Bodin's one undeniably fecund contribution.

It does fit with what is known of our own development of inquiries pertaining to the possibilities beyond our own planetary concerns that myriad other stars that have older beings may take much longer in sharing the curiosity displayed by at least some homo sapiens. Also enjoy reading about the "water world" hypothesis which David Brin makes entertainingly fascinating. The earth being more pronouncedly covered by land with large continents is at least a reasonable position.

Thanks to post-modernism, you can have a movie called Men in Black with women in it.

The movie was really bad for the record. All it did was make me miss Will Smith

Not required. Once this movie bombs Waterworld style then no studio will want to try and reboot it.

Man bait stories are really good at getting the low IQ folks riled up about impending feminism and white genocide

Cause she's hot she also looks like a young Lisa Bonet. She was pretty good in the Creed movies.
