Went to watch 2 movies last week. X files & Dark Knight.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is once again FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
The movie I feel is more like a remarkably long episode of the TV show; it’s a stand-alone story, long, very ala X-files, longggg, slow, longggggggg (ok.. ive mentioned long many times.. )
Both Mulder and Scully have left the FBI long ago; she’s a physician at a hospital; he seems to spend his time cutting things out of newspapers in hiding somewhere very ‘ulu’. FBI somehow lose some agents, and needs a favour from them, so brings them back into the world of the paranormal: Mulder’s assistance is needed in a case involving a missing FBI agent and a priest (who is a child rapist) who sees visions of the missing woman.
The story, once it unfolds, turns out to be both uninvolving and a little silly. A subplot involving a sick little kid at the hospital got me off the suspense of the main plot. Dr. Scully meticulously Googles “stem cell research,” prints out some random things and ugly pictures, and uses those highly doubtful into from the net for her surgery!!!!! (No, I don’t want to believe. At least, I want to believe that doctors have access to something better than Google.)
But I did learn a new sentence that I liked though..
“kiss his holy ass”
So if any of your colleagues is sucking up to the boss, tell them that…
And BIG BIG thanks to MIU for these tickets! Muacks muacks…
In any case, if you loved the x-files for the strong characters as I did, I believe you will enjoy ‘I want to Believe’.
