Nov 24th 2009 4:36PM I really wanted to like this movie. I dragged a friend to it, and just couldn't defend it after walking out of the theater. I found a couple things that I liked better after watching it again on DVD, but overall I still think it's a pretty poor final movie. I hope I'm wrong about it being the final movie, but after the reviews and performance, I'll be surprised if they do anything more with the franchise.
Mostly, it really just didn't feel like an X-Files movie to me. It felt like a vaguely creepy serial killer movie that could've been made 10 years ago starring Angelina Jolie or Ashley Judd that they rewrote and threw Mulder and Scully in. There was nothing, at all, special about it that stuck out as being memorable to fans of the series or the characters.
And the end? Scully hits the dude with a piece of wood, and Skinner walks in with one gun to a filthy lab with filthier dogs where they're replacing body parts cause that's safe, and basically says to the group of people "Stop what you're doing cause it's wrong."
Sorry to be harsh and bitter, I just really wanted to like the movie and I knew it was going to be a sore spot from the first few minutes of the movie.
Feb 22nd 2009 6:43PM Did I hear Adama wrong when Baltar was asking him about guns? Adama started to leave, and Baltar asked where he was going, and he replied something along the lines of "To the head .. a little project I've been working on." I laughed when I heard it, but Adama hasn't really been the joke cracking type so I probably heard it wrong.
