Well Dave, you and the carpet muncher must have had some creative control over the last film. If you just told the screenwriters to go back to the drawing board it might not have sucked so much and the aliens could have invaded in 2012 as scheduled in XF3.
 
2012-08-14 08:11:43 AM
I'd like to see the final X-Files film... with T-1000 in it, too.
 
2012-08-14 08:33:03 AM
Yeah, I'm pretty sure his Green Lantern analogy doesn't work, considering that Warner Brothers owns DC Comics...

I mean, sure at some point, like 20 years ago, they had to buy them, but it's probably paid off by now.

Well, Kinney Cleaners bought DC in the late 60s, and also bought WB/7 Arts around the same time. So, WB never really bought DC, they were just bought up by the same parent company.

You're old and the X-Files' heyday was decades ago. Go away.

Instead of a shiatty new movie with you're old balls, how about Fox pulls a CBS Entertainment and composites the original negatives of the TV show into new masters and scans them for a HD Bluray Release?

CBS is doing / did it for Trek TNG... then again they meticulously saved the daily's and didn't use them as toilet paper like fox probably did.

That show turned into a steaming pile there at the end.
 
2012-08-14 10:31:11 AM
If he's desperate for another movie he should think back to when he and the clam bumper lost interest and we were stuck with Robert Patrick and the other chick. Not that the T-1000 isn't cool but it was definitely a shark jumping moment.
 
2012-08-14 10:32:19 AM
Has he finally realized that his career will never be as good as it was during the X-files heyday?
 
2012-08-14 10:34:41 AM
Not particularly important, but damn i wish I could go back to the days when X-files was a big deal. Not so much for the show, but it wasn't bad.
 
2012-08-14 10:42:14 AM
Well, David, maybe if your second X-Files movie didn't suck sweaty balls, that might be a possibility.

I wonder how often he listens to the "David Duchovny why won't you love me?" song.


/David Duchovny I know you could love me I'm sweet and I'm cuddly, I'm gonna kill SCULLY!
 
2012-08-14 10:46:55 AM
I never saw a thread on Fark for the movie. I didn't even know it was hated. I thought it was a very creepy one off story that got the ball rolling on the franchise again and the fans that I know who saw it liked it.

/yeah Xzibit did not have to be there.
 
2012-08-14 10:51:10 AM
No one cares about you or the X-files any more, Dave. Now Gillian, on the other hand...

I thought Robert Patrick's character was interesting.

However, the story in that last season with the Super Soldiers... that wasn't too great.

The last movie was basically a 2 hour episode that didn't tie to anything in the past.

My wife and I paid to watch it in the theater and it was pretty much a waste of a ticket.
 
2012-08-14 11:00:44 AM
Have been making my way through Xfiles on netflix streaming so I'm getting a kick...
Amazing show and so many familiar faces guest starring. Definitely has held up even though it is 15 years old now.

Would much rather see a Fringe movie.

The majority of internet people thought it was, say, 2 and a half stars. A few liked it more, a few liked it lest. This is fark, so obviously the hyperbolic WORST MOVE EVAR attitude will be more prevelant.
 
2012-08-14 11:13:24 AM
I like the Green Lantern movie,

well expect the parts with ryan reynolds.

The rest of the movie was great.

Need a part two that kicks off the blackest night or the JLA movie to kick off the blackest night for a green lantern part 2 with no ryan reynolds.
 
2012-08-14 11:15:43 AM
The show was great at first, but I quickly lost interest when it became clear that there was no overall story, and they were writing it with the one goal of continuing the story as long as possible.

The last straw for me was the first movie. A bunch of crap to return the show to the status quo.

I actually liked the second movie.

I really wish the almighty dollar didn't rule as much as it does in entertainment. So many TV shows go on way too long at the expense of the story, and too many movies are ruined by unnecessary sequels.
 
2012-08-14 11:17:34 AM
I'm probably in the minority,but I'm open to the idea,as long as there's a great script-preferably one that brings solid closure to the human-alien conspiracy storyline.
 
2012-08-14 11:19:25 AM
Duchovny killed that cash cow with his greed when he left the show and now he wants to reanimate its corpse to get zombie cow milk from it? Good Luck!

meh, I enjoyed it for the continuity of the characters, the "where are they now" scenario. What I didn't like was that it was a return to the whole belief and disbelief of Scully, at some point, she's been through enough that she should be a lot more onboard the whole "weird crap really does exist/happens" idea.

They need to bury that side of things once and for all.

What they need to do is reboot the series with Scully being returned to the FBI to mentor a replacement team. With Mulder turning into the new "cancer man" as he becomes aware of a new "truth" that he finds out, only to see that he needs to protect the world against it.

From there, they could start a new series. "The Y Files"

Orgasmatron138: The show was great at first, but I quickly lost interest when it became clear that there was no overall story, and they were writing it with the one goal of continuing the story as long as possible.


Yeah, I have really fond memories of it, but when I watched through it again on Netflix, I kind of meh'd, but watched the whole thing anyhow. I always talked about how I liked the big conspiracy story arc episodes better, but when I rewatched it, the monster of the week ones were actually the better episodes.

I think when I was a teenager, I was more willing to convince myself that the story didn't seem to make sense because I just wasn't smart enough to understand it, not because it was poorly written and not thought out.
 
2012-08-14 11:25:41 AM
I'd watch another X-Files movie. Personally though, I'd prefer they do something other than an alien conspiracy plot. My favorite episodes were the twisted/funny one-offs, like Humbug or The Post-Modern Prometheus. Or, if you want pure creepiness factor, Squeeze and Tooms.

imfallen_angel: Mulder turning into the new "cancer man"


ok, that's the only part of your comment that I liked. Do a new X-Files-like show (too late for fringe, but I don't mind... never got into it), with David Duchovny playing the Unnamed Smoking Man Replacement, and don't officially confirm that it's Mulder or that the show shares continuity with the X-Files. Just put little clues for nerds on the Internet to argue about.

/ Don't know where Duchovny stands on the whole "sex addiction" thing these days, like if he's trying to recover or whatever. Since Mulder had basically the same proclivities, they should make him the Dirty Old Man instead of the Smoking Man. He'll hold clandestine meetings in the back rooms of strip clubs, send coded messages through YouPorn, etc.

They did that. I believe they call it "Season 9".

She is on board. Her problem with everything was Moulder glossing over that dude was a pedophile and psychotic. His willingness to ignore the fact he could have just beecn messing with them is the main problem she had.

What the hell are you talking about?

Also, the biggest problem with XF2 was that they had the characters romantically linked and Duchovney and Anderson not only have no chemistry, but they are actually repulsed by each other and it comes through on the screen. I'd be willing to bet that they knocked boots way early on and then got to know each other enough that they find each other repugnant. When they are written as a couple (vs partners) they just can't pull it off. You can FEEL the revulsion come across...

Well, if there's one thing that I do enjoy is having this sort of connection between shows, like on Wings when they go to a party and come across Rebecca from Cheers there, or Norm and Cliff going to Nantucket for a fishing trip.

So, I'd support that idea of having a show where they'd do that sort of thing (like Sergeant Munch).

So, a movie about the 2012 alien invasion, that will come out in 2013 or 2014?

lol que?

And the last movie was in the style of their "Monster of the week" episodes, and that pissed off a lot of people hoping for continuation on the main storyline on his sister and the alien invasion.

I am saying that people talk like Scully reverted back to "there is no such thing as aliens" Scully in that movie and that's NOT true. That's my point.

And I don't see the same thing you do in their relationship onscreen. YMMV I guess. :)

Wow seriously?? It stuck out like a sore thumb to me. I liked the movie itself, but X-Files as a show ruined me on 'conspiracy' shows to this day. I never watched 'Lost' or 'Rubicon' or anything like that shiat...Hell I was even skeptical of the cylons plan even though I watched that show.

I'm glad to see its a good theory to stick with (conspiracy shows just make it up as they go...)

He was hired help on The X-Files. He's an executive producer on Californication, so he's probably making mad bank from that.
 
2012-08-14 03:12:24 PM
As a diehard fan that last movie was just painful to watch. No chemistry, no plot, none of the actual fun or banter that made the original series or first movie great. It was more of a sullen "where are they now and why you shouldn't care." It felt more like them trying to get the fans to fark off and let it all die.

Which honestly, I'm happy to do.
 
2012-08-14 03:33:15 PM
I guess I'm not an intellectual film critic. I enjoyed the show and it was fun to see the characters again in the movies. It's 90 minutes of meaningless diversion. I don't need war and peace for that. if they make another I'll see it, monster of the week or not. And I don't care if it 'honors' the series or wraps it up or answers old questions or not.

I'd be on board for a 3rd movie only if somehow it could be another Jose Chung story. Too bad Charles Nelson Reilly passed away.

Both Jose Chung episodes of the X-Files and the cross over episode of Millennium were pure TV story telling gold.
