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.
