Re: The X-Files
I haven't seen Fight For the Future in a year or so won't comment on that. Although I always liked the big set pieces to it.
I Want To Believe I always actually was not much of a fan of because how dark the subject matter and content was. It just didn't bother me in the same way in my rewatch the other day.
What I loved was how it made me really think about the concept of faith. I enjoyed the ambiguity as well. That's much more what life is like and what faith is like. I don't think the movie gave me answers but allowed me to dwell / think through the concepts. And it worked for me as a standalone film or an x files entry because, well, faith is at the center of the x files universe.
That said I understand it's not a film that's everyone's cup of tea. It wasn't even mind up until this point. But I took a lot out of it this time around and I also appreciated the locations and cinematography.
