Welcome to Memorial Day Weekend 2012.
As we all begin our three day weekends, let's not forget the reason we get Monday off from work. On behalf of GonzoGeek, I want to thank everyone who has served or currently serves in the military. I am especially grateful to all the members of the Armed Forces who gave their lives in defense of our country.
Memorial Day is the de facto beginning of summer. The days are longer. The temperatures are hotter. The bikinis are smaller.
Gentlemen start your engines!
Seriously, though, who doesn't like to start the summer with a day off to recover from a Sunday hangover?
And, of course, if its summer, that means the summer movies are about to start hitting is fast and furious (but, ironically, not Fast and Furious
And first out of the gate this year is the Fresh Prince
himself, Will Smith, with a second sequel to 1997's Men in Black
Smith is back after a four year layoff in which he turned both of his kid's into cottage industries. Tommy Lee Jones is also back as Agent K. They bring along Josh Brolin as a younger version of K. Brolin must have spent a lot of time studying Jones during the filming of No Country for Old Men
And, most importantly for our purposes, the MIBs bring along this week's cheesecake.
Say hello to Alice Eve.
Ms. Eve plays a younger version of Emma Thompson's Agent O opposite Brolin's aforementioned Agent K.
The British born Ms. Eve is perhaps most famous for her role as the titular "she" in She's Out of My League
, a movie that continues to clog up my home DVR. In addition, she's had roles in Sex and the City 2
, wherein she made an honest man out of Vinny Chase.
Men in Black III
is her largest role to date and I'm sure we'll be seeing more of her
