The X-Files Fight the Future: Netflix Surprises

There is a good X-Files movie.

Yes, besides the awesome TV show that essentially ran forever (found on Netflix), there was a good movie.

Wait, do you think I'm talking about that X-Files movie that came out a couple years ago? That "I Want to Believe" movie?

No. God no.

The latest X-Files movie was garbage. It hadn't anything to do with aliens (seriously, why even make an X-Files movie without aliens?) nor much anything resembling a good X-Files episode.

But anyway, in 1998, there was a good X-Files movie, and it rocks. It's great, and it's available on Netflix.

The movie follows Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, two FBI agents who are tasked to the paranormal. Mulder is open-minded, and Scully is the balancing-out character, who's excessively "logical" (despite having years upon years of paranormal experience that can't possibly all be explained by scientific evidence).

If for some reason you haven't watched this movie, you need to if you have any love of science fiction. It's a fun ride, and it's a great adaptation of a TV series (it's basically just a high budget episode). Of course, if you haven't seen the TV show, give that a shot too, but if you're hesitant, this is a great place to start.

C'mon, the newer film is not that bad. I think your expectations were just not met, that doesn't mean it is a bad movie though. I think it is relatively good. And if I had to choose between no film and the one we got I am will take it. It was pretty decent. I assume they will make one more -- fingers crossed -- that will wrap up the alien story line.

The movie is no longer on Netflix. I can't find it anywhere. This is a legitimate problem.
