The X-Files (1998)

Synopsis: Yin and Yang FBI agents tackle alien plague, government conspiracies, and numerous plot holes.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Thirty-seven thousand years ago, a deadly secret was buried in a cave in Texas. Now the secret has been unleashed. And its discovery may mean the end of all humanity. ‘The plague to end all plagues...’”

What Did I Learn?: A virus-carrying bee can remain hidden in clothing even after a harrowing chase scene, a flight from Texas to Washington DC, and an hours-long FBI inquiry, and then sting right at the very second when Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) are about to kiss.

You Might Like This Movie If: You were an X-Files fan and you want to hear Gillian Anderson say: “I don’t know, Mulder” a few more times.

Really?: Oh wow...where do I begin? How did Mulder just stumble upon the bomb in the FEMA building? How did he and Scully get home from Antarctica? How did they know the tanker trucks went off-road?

Rating: When I was a fan of the X-Files TV series, I hated this movie so much that I gave up watching the show. That hate is gone, but I still couldn’t take the X-Files film seriously, even if it was fun to see Scully and Mulder in action again. 6/10 stars.
