The X Files: I Want to Believe 
I Want to Forget this Film Exists
2.5/4 stars

This (literally!) colourless sequel to both the hit Fox TV show and the enjoyable first movie manages to defy your expectations by being comparably underwhelming in every single sense to its predecessors. The average season finale of the original show had more spectacle and awe than this movie, and that was in the days when television programs were only just starting to have real money being funnelled into them! It is utterly absurd that the writers of this film decided to ignore the great cliffhanger of the series finale (where AN ALIEN INVASION WAS PROMISED) and gave us instead some third-rate Monster-of-the-Week story about a pair of gay serial killers (though one of them is supposed to be transgender... I think) who have read a bit too much Mary Shelley. That's it? Duchovny and Anderson were dragged back to sunny Vancouver for a feature-length Torchwood episode? What a colossal waste of everyone's time!

Oh, and Billy Connolly plays a relatively sympathetic pedophile priest. If anyone knows the name of the casting director for this movie, please send me their contact information. I want what they're smoking.
