As a ripoff of Men in Black (1997), R.I.P.D. (Blu-ray release 2013-10-29) is not excessively bad, in comparison with the dozen trash-level ripoffs of Alien I’ve watched.  However, the original Men in Black is just so much more interesting than R.I.P.D. in the areas of screenplay, characters, chemistry, monsters, production design, i.e. everything.  This movie just feels uninspired.  To make things worse, a major monster in this movie demonstrates the most fake CG from a major Hollywood production in the last 5 or more years.
