  1. Dark, funny, paranoid, arbitrary, humming with tamped-down eroticism and in love with all things weird: That's the good news.

Being a late fan of the tv-series, this was exactly like an extended episode. Which means stretched time of fun... The plot is ever suspensing, surprising, and well... plotted. Must see to all even slightly X-Files fans, though even if you haven't seen any episode on the tv, I think it doesn't matter. The movie goes on just fine on its own, and after seeing it (and liking it) you no doubt want more. Full Review »

    This is a fantastic movie that honestly goes beyond the bounds of what I thought the X-Files was capable of. It pushes the metaplot forwardThis is a fantastic movie that honestly goes beyond the bounds of what I thought the X-Files was capable of. It pushes the metaplot forward while also serving to act as a cohesive individual story as well. I don't think you can get nearly as much out of this if you're not already familiar with all the x-files stuff, but it's very rewarding all the way though if you are. Full Review »
