The X-Files: I Want to Believe - really I do

Starring: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson
Category: Horror, Mystery

10 is a long time and the world continues spinning, like it or not. 10 years is a long wait for another X-Files movie and the question is whether there's anybody left who cares about another X-Files movie.
Good thing the passing of time was not lost on Chris Carter. Instead of simply picking up where the TV series ended, he let time take it's course and began the movie where the characters would most likely be now or at least where the progression would have reached a holding pattern or stalemate.
And that is where the characters are caught in. A stalemate in their lives. Scully is back to being a doctor, doing what she wants, finally making a difference. Mulder is hiding, sort of. Officially, the FBI are looking for him. In reality they know where to find him. But they are probably just as happy to leave him be. Just in case he becomes useful again.
