SPOILER ALERT: X-FILES. Not like anyone is going to see this movie anyway.

    Things I thought while watching the X-Files movie:


"Are you fucking kidding me? The song doesn't start with the whistle! It starts with the moog."
"Where's the moog?"
"Oh man, are you kidding me?"
"Is that Amanda Peet? Oh get the hell out of here."
"What?"
"1st whistle theme song, lame. 2nd whistle theme song, George W Bush?"
"OH OK I GET IS GWB = HOOVER."
"Since when are M & S doing it?"
"STEM CELLS?" pbbbtt
"Gun would not hit the ground three seconds before body hits the ground. I thought this show was SCIENCES."
"Love, blah blah blah, shut the fuck up, whurs the ghosts?"
"This movie would have been a THOUSAND times better if they had been running a baby factory for harvesting stem cells, explaining the missing limbs (baby mamas don't need arms to make babies) and tie in the lame stem cells crap."
"YES! EXPERIMENTS!"
"SCULLY SAID BALLS!"
"SKINNER!"
"Don't give up, cause there's a place, where we belong." YESS PETER GABRIEL. Am I the only one who heard the similarity?

Overall rating: 6/10 but that's mostly because of the franchise and the last twenty minutes, which actually got kind of awesome.

i actually saw the movie too. not what i expected. the writing just wasn't there. i think if this story had been done in the 4th or 5th season as a stand-alone episode it would have been awesome, but coming back 6 years after the show went off the air and not brining their A-game to the script was kind of weak. i think 6/10 is a fair assessment.

ps. M&S were totally doing it before the show went off the air.

I def don't remember them getting it on, but I also don't remember why he left the show. Also, I really do think that my idea for a baby factory full of limb-less kidnapped women might make an awesome, disturbing movie.

they had something similar to that in season 4 with the deformed, limb-less, hillbilly mother that lived under a bed on a rolling cart, and had been having inbred babies with her son after her husband died in a car wreck.

I should really go back and watch these again, it's probably been eight years since I've seen an episode.

i was thoroughly disappointed, and most of your train of thought was the same as mine while watching. i also thought it was more "mediocre episode" than "summer blockbuster comeback movie"
