A Tad Disappointing

Rob and I saw "The X-Files: I Want To Believe" last night. Let me tell you, totally not worth the $1.09 we spent at the Redbox to rent it. I was all kinds of excited about it. I watched "The X-Files" when I was a teenager and loved it! They had me believing in extra-terrestrials, rooting for Mulder and glaring at Scully for her scepticism, and wanting to jam that smoky cigarette down Cancerman's throat. You can imagine my anticipation for this to come to DVD. They made it sound just like the old days, out looking for evidence of aliens and whatnot.

It wasn't. Not at all.

I won't ruin it for those of you who think I'm full of it and rent it anyway, but let me tell you, don't expect a whole lot. It was a good movie, decent plot, but definitely not the "X-Files" I remember. No E.T. No spaceship. It was more about Scully and Mulder's relationship than anything else.

Now I'm looking forward to "Paul Blart: Mall Cop." [insert uncontrollable giggles here]

I love movies. I can't wait to see the mall cop one either.

I just saw Iron Man and I didn't think I would like it because aren't there enough super hero movies? But I really liked it.

Other movies I want to see: Marley and Me, The Tale of Despereaux, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Bedtime Stories and I REALLY want to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (I love Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett). :D

that trailer was hilarious! i thought it was a fake movie at the beginning. i saw "twilight" last week, it was ok, no "interview with a vampire", but typical pro-abstinence teenage love story.
