Ed Harris in a submarine with Mulder....I'm excited. It's been a while since I've seen a good submarine movie, and even longer since I've seen Hank Moody in a good movie...

They had their chance to make another X-Files movie, but it ended up being kind of bland, in my opinion. I actually got excited about it after I had read online that it was supposed to be more like the freak-of-the-week episodes instead of following the plot line about the government's alien conspiracy. It did end up being like a self-contained X-Files episode, but unfortunately it was like one of the unmemorable ones.

Maybe it's better than I remember. I have the DVD, so I could easily rewatch it at some point, but I just can't be bothered. I still haven't watched the movie again since seeing it in the theater. The DVD was a Christmas present from an ex-girlfriend, and now that I think about it, my lukewarm reaction to receiving the present may have been a significant turning point in our relationship.

 I wanted the new X-Files movie to be great, the first movie set the bar kind of high. It was good, but totally negated the entire story of everything that came before it.  And it just wasn't good.

 Yeah, the second X-files movie really didn't live up to my expectations. I don't remember a whole lot about it except that they needed the kid toucher for..something. And I got kind of bored.

I'm having a little trouble following this. Mostly, it's pronoun trouble. When you say, "It was good, but totally negated the entire story of everything that came before it," are you talking about the first movie or the second movie? When you say, "And it just wasn't good," are you talking about the same "it" you were talking about in the sentence that preceded it? If so, it leaves me wondering whether you thought it was good or not good, since you say both.

I saw Gillian Anderson at the Fan Expo in Toronto this summer.  She said that a third film was very possible, and wanted by the main players.  She said so again in subsequent interviews.  It is just a matter of convincing the studio.

Let me clarify, I adored the first movie. That bit I did about the second movie being good, negating everything before it, and just not being good:could have been worded better? I just meant it as a humorous observation. Upon initially remembering the movie as good, it reminded me that it trashed the continuity, and by the end of my thought I changed my mind...plus it just wasn't good.

I liked it.  Not as much as the first, but it was decent.

I was disappointed in the first movie. It started off looking like it'd be epic, but then turned into just another Sully got 'napped so let's spend the rest of the episode looking for her. I think we'd already seen about 30 of those episodes. Didn't think we needed another.

I'm not too invested in the X-Files mythology. I liked the first movie just fine and thought the second movie was all right.

I haven't seen all that much of the series. I've seen most of the first season. I remember it having its ups and downs, and I remember being annoyed by little things along the way. I remember being annoyed by the heavy-handedness of the skeptic-believer dynamic. It gave me flashbacks to how infuriating it was when I'd watch Sesame Street as as a kid and Snuffleupagus would duck out at just the right moment. Big Bird would then rush the adults in to prove to them that Snuffleupagus existed, and they would be pat and condescending about his "imagination."

I also remember being annoyed by the FBI's nickname for Fox Mulder. Yeah, it's a dumb thing to be annoyed about, but I'm me. Seriously, though: "Spooky" Mulder? I'm supposed to believe that the best FBI agents can do is "Spooky"? Are seven-year-olds writing this show? Don't you usually play off the name when you're mocking somebody? No "Crocks" Mulder, "Pox" Mulder, "Eats a Lot of Cocks" Mulder, or "Gets Buttfucked Down by the Docks" Mulder? These are dumb too, but at least they're believable nicknames. They sound more like something naturally arrived at and less like something a group of writers decided on to give viewers an immediate indication of how the guy's perceived as a kooky outsider. 

Of all the things I could be bitching about, I focus on Mulder's nickname. Something's clearly wrong with me.

msunyata told me nobody liked the first season. (If so, I'm not sure how it became such a cult hit right out of the gate; maybe people embraced it because they were hungry for any kind of sci-fi television on a major network.) He gave me the impression that the third season was a giant leap forward and that the fifth season was thegreatestthingofalltimeever. I skipped straight to the third season before finishing the first. I guess what I saw of the third season before I moved on to other things was an improvement on the first season, but it didn't really grab me. Maybe it would have resonated more if I had seen the second season.

I saw whatever the episode featuring "The Great Mutato" was called. I think it was from the fifth season. It was the first episode I ever watched. I saw a commercial for it and was pulled in by the black-and-white gimmick. It was amusing enough. It probably wasn't the best indication of the show's overall thrust.

I also saw part of an episode about a year later that takes place on a boat in the past and features Nazis. It was all right too. I think I came away from these two episodes thinking the show was desperate for ratings by the fifth season and was doing whatever it could to bring in viewers. Maybe this wasn't true at all. Maybe the ratings were pretty solid and it gave them the balls to do some more adventurous stuff.

I figure I'll give the series another go on down the road.

I was annoyed by The Road. I mean the book. Haven't seen the movie. I imagine the movie will annoy me less than the book, since McCarthy's narratives are generally solid.
