My Review

I was going to give you my review of “The X-Files: I Want to Believe”. Make no mistake– I love this film. I was happy the first time, but thrilled the second when I had time to focus and not think, “wow, the filmmakers are behind me and damnit, Duchovny looks hot”.

The X-Files grows up. This is a character piece. Sure, it’s got a creep factor, but the story is a love story like no other. And I mean love in its purest form, as well as it’s most twisted. The parallels between Scully’s story and the main plot leave you with some fairly profound notions. This is a thinking person’s film — far closer to October indie films than summer blockbusters. If you are looking for explosions and CGI, don’t bother. But if you are looking for character development, suspense, humor, a debate about redemption and love, then give this movie a chance.

But rather than tell you all the reasons I loved it, I thought I’d link to a fellow blogger. I’ve rarely read a more articulate review of any movie. So, even if you don’t care about this movie at all, read this guy’s writing: http://reflectionsonfilmandtelevision.blogspot.com/ (Do not read if you are trying to avoid spoilers. Major spoilers here).

Have no fear– I’ll be going back to bemoaning my fate tomorrow.

    Hello LA! Ah, I miss LA, have been there a number of times.I spotted you over at David Ds blog.I’m a film maker, blogger, and web site operator. I’m quite impassioned at the moment about how the new X Files movie is coming under much undeserved flack. And it has me worried about this may well be the end of any X Files movie series.So with that in mind, I’ve set up a blog and a petition. I would be grateful if you could stop by it and bloglist me:-) I will bloglist you. Spread the word.http://iwanttobelievexf3.blogspot.comStephen

    You got it! Are you on Big Light? We’re talking about a lot of different ideas to help get the word out about the movie. You should go over if you aren’t there already:network.biglight.com
