In Theaters

Apparently the lamentable last season or two of The X-Files and the 1998 mega-episode film Fight the Future wasn’t insult enough to the show’s legacy as a groundbreaking, mythopoetic phenomenon. No, yet another film had to be made, some six years after the series ground to a halt, in order to further degrade one’s memory of the once-respected pop-culture totem. That film is The X-Files: I Want to Believe, and far from making believers out of the audience, it does everything possible to turn them into staunch realists, not to mention people who might then wonder, What was the big deal about that show, anyway?

The X-Files: I Want to Believe opens today, for whatever it’s worth. You can read the full review at filmcritic.com.
