'Men in Black II' - HIgh-Def Digest Review
Raise your hand if you think you saw 'Men in Black II,' but you don't remember any of it (I'm right there with you). Luke has just reviewed the film. He says it's as forgettable as your remember (or forgot).
Full review here:

Hickman strikes again!
Another Luke A. Hickman non review! I remember MIB2 fondly, picked up this disc before reading this (non) review and was very pleasantly surprised at just how enjoyable it was. Yes, it wasn't as good as the first movie, but bad? No way...
Given the fact that most if not all of those who frequent this site are likely to have already seen this movie and most other catalogue items now finding their way onto BD, wouldn't it be sufficient just to make us aware that the disc is available and then concentrate on the technical aspects of the disc? Do we really need to know what this twat Hickman thinks of the movie...?

Gimme a break....
...I have just as much right to strongly disagree with his opinion as he does to have that opinion in the first place. His past reviews - his hatchet job on Real Steel was a cracker! - have earmarked him as a bit of a liability to me and have caused me to question the need for a review of a catalogue item in the first place. Surely we've all seen this movie and already made our minds up about it, we just need the tech info, don't we?
Impolite? Back of the line? Are we children here...?

Personally I like the movie itself portions for catalog titles more than new releases, where I generally ignore them. It can be a good indicator of how well a movie has aged. If a reviewer likes an older movie I do but mentiones it not holding up well today, I'll usually try to see it again before buying it to make sure I still like it enough for a purchase.

Hey there Glooby. Just a heads up. If you don't want to read the opinion about the film part of a review it is very easy to skip to the tech part of the review.
Really to call people a twat because you don't agree with them, about a movie of all things, is about as childish as one can get.

Thanks for sticking up for me folks! Don't worry - I've got tough skin and this isn't the first time I've been called a "twat." It is, however, the first time that I've been called a twat by someone who doesn't know me in the slightest. But who cares? It's no sweat off my back. Some guy sitting behind a computer hates me because I don't think EXACTLY like him. This doesn't bother me because Julian and I agree on almost every movie and his compliments can make up for any unknown person's trolling.

MIB II is garbage. The worst scene in the film is that godawaful Rip Torn jump kick. Oh, and Reel Steel sucks balls, too.

What I was looking forward to was the animated short "The Chubb Chubbs" in High Def, which was one of the best items on the original DVD release.
It's not here!!!

I watched this recently after not having seen it for years and it's just as bad as the review states. MIB II is far too short, full of dated references, product placement and some stupid sequences (like the Rip Torn jump kick) and alien designs. It's far below the first one in quality all the way through and it shows. As a big fan of the first film I remembered this one as being decent but that recent viewing really changed my opinion.
