Don't read the reviews of this movie. Don't listen to other's slam it or degrade it as something not worthy of your attention. Go see it because you WANT to because you're FAN of the X-Files. This movie is not Batman or Star Wars or Indiana Jones for petes sake. It's the X-Files!
First off it's a stand alone story. There is no link to the on going plot line of abductions, little sisters, alien babies or the Smoking Man. It's just it's own movie, don't look for connections.
Mulder is brought in on a case by the FBI regarding a psychic in a case involving an agent they grant him immunity if he helps them but he will only help if Scully comes along too.
There is some heart breaking moments, some gore, some crazies, some needles, some scalpels and a 2 headed dog...
But all in all, I enjoyed the movie. I was happy to see Mulder and Scully working together again and being together. I was happy for the brief appearance of one of my other favorite characters. I was enthralled and stretched by the topic of the movie.
I think that perhaps if it wasn't up against movies like The Dark Knight and the other summer blockbusters it would have done so much better then the $10.2 Million it brought in at the box office this weekend. I also think a little more advertising could have helped too.
Don't hold your hopes up for a thrilling, exploding, adventure extravaganza because this movie is not it. It's plain and simple. It's the X-Files.

With the New X-Files Movie Opening Today. I thought that Fox Mulder has a nick name. They call him “Spooky Mulder.” Now I should’ve stated earlier that Scarlet introduced me to The X-files. I really only watched it very little. She is a giant fan. I tease her more then I should about the fact that She didn't cry once at or wedding. She did how ever cry when “The Lone Gunmen” died. Anyway, I thought that all the die hard fans should have nick names too. Therefore Scarlet’s new nick name is (dramatic pause) “Ominous Evans.” I got one to “Eerie Evans.” You can all laugh all you want because so are we. We are going to go see the Movie Today after work. I am sure Scarlet will let everyone know how it was.
“I want to Believe.”

Ella Enchanted – Another take on the Cinderella story with a twist. Ella was given a gift as a child to always do what she it told. Her evil step sisters take advantage of this and make her do horrible things and get in lots of trouble. When she sets out on a quest to find her fairy godmother she ends up falling in love with the prince and together they have mishaps and adventures and have a happy ending. This movie is cute. A little corny at times, but I love it none-the-less.
Meet Joe Black – Death Comes for Rich Guy. Death decides to stay and visit “Life” for a while. Death falls in love with Rich Guy’s Daughter. We are lectured about the true meaning of love and why we should appreciate life. I truly do love this movie. It’s quite long, but I absolutely think it’s worth the time.
The Secret of the Roan Inish – This is a fantastic tale of a little girl named Fiona who is sent to live with her grandparents in a small fishing village in Donegal, Ireland. She soon learns the local/family legend that an ancestor of hers married a Selkie - a seal who can turn into a human. Years earlier, her baby brother washed out to sea in a cradle shaped like a boat; her grandfather believes the boy is being raised by the seals. Between her lost little brother and her grandparent’s losing their house Fiona must solve mysteries, help her grandfather and learn the truth about the Roan Inish. This is a cute movie that has me looking for “Selkie’s” every time I’m near the sea. It’s an older movie, 1994, but it’s a good one.
Braveheart – “Every man dies, not every man really lives.” This movie I love. William Wallace’s father and brother are killed by the English and he is taken away by Uncle Argyle. Years later he returns to Scotland and falls in love with Murron. Due to a new mandate by the English King, an English Lord gets the bride on her wedding night 'Prima Nocta' in order to breed the Scots out of Scotland. William doesn’t like this so he and Murron marry in secret.... Well the English don’t like that and kill her in the town square leading William into an all out war between Scotland and England entwining the Princess of England into a love story and tragedy of William Wallace.
Kate & Leopold –Leopold is from the Nineteenth Century. Kate is from the current time in 2001. Due to a time incident, they meet each other in the present day and they fall in love to each other. He has to go back to his time and the are sad. Then she follows him home and they are happy.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. Enjoy!
This should be a monthly topic to see what Liz has this month ... This month the Illness of choice (or not by choice) is:
What is giardiasis?
Giardiasis (say "jee-ar-DYE-uh-sus") is an infection of the intestines caused by the parasite Giardia lamblia.
The illness, also called giardia, is most often a problem in undeveloped countries where tap water is not safe.
So I guess the question that remains unanswered is ... How did I get it?
I guess it's time to invest in a Brita.

Life is like a computer. I'll be working along just fine in windows getting things done and progressing but then BAM! out of nowhere comes the blue screen of death and surprise surprise when you reboot everything comes up in DOS mode and since no one really knows how to use it anymore I'm just stuck in a black screen ... ugh!
And it came to pass that I said unto them that I knew that I had spoken hard things against the wicked, according to the truth; and the righteous have I justified, and testified that they should be lifted up at the last day; wherefore, the guilty taketh the truth to be hard, for it cutteth them to the very center.

The Mammoth Book of the Titanic
Compiled by: Jeff Tibballs
I feel like I have been reading this book forever. I got it for Christmas a few years ago and it has lived in the bathroom ever since. :)
I am utterly fascinated by the Titanic. The story of the ship, who built it, how it was built, why it was built. All the rich and glorious people on board and the horrors of the 3rd Class passengers and the bravery and selfishness and the selflessness and everything in between.
This is one of the most educational books I have read about the titanic. It contains the personal accounts of people who were on the ship and also the investigations that went into why it sunk. In the back it has passenger lists, Death lists, survivor lists... It’s awesome.
I’m a little sad that I finished it after all this time, but that leaves me wide open to read it again or to peruse the book story for something else about the Titanic that is just as fascinating.
