Surprisingly good, actually. Doesn't have much to do with the series or last film. It's more along the lines of weird serial murder flicks like Seven.

Anyway, i loved Skinner's "Maybe i can Google it" line as he whips out his iPhone.

I liked it. But I didn't love it. I loved the characterizations. They really got Mulder and Scully right. But the story was too... small. I loved the other movie. The epic feel of it. And the payoff at the end where the alien ship rises out of the snow and Mulder is the only one to see it. Great stuff.

I loved the original show when it was out. I was afraid that seeing this would somehow ruin all my good memories of the show if this movie sucked. But maybe I will watch it now.

I didn't see it because apparently I don't really watch movies any more. But I was underwhelmed with the first movie and I heard this one was even less inspired, so I avoided.

well, if you approach it expecting an extension of the main UFO storyline, you will be disappointed. It has little to do with the series or previous movie.

I was really disappointed in this film. It was basically an extra-long episode. I wanted to scream WTF, but my daughters watched with me.
