I'm in two minds over this movie. First off, I'm an X Files fan so I may be bias. From an X Files fan stand point, I don't feel it would live up to expectations. Not only was it far from what I was expecting but it wasn't X File-ish enough for me. What I had read about it is that it could have been a stand alone movie and going by that it is a possibility except for certain parts of the story that... read more

When an FBI agent goes missing, FBI Special Agent Dakota Whitney (Amanda Peet) seeks the Mulder's help in debunking the psychic visions of a former priest who claims that the missing woman is still alive.

The X-Files usually manages to make the bizarre plausible if not believable. However, this is not the case with I Want to Believe. The movie spends a lot of time examining the nat... read more

I really love the X-Files, in all its forms. The show is awesome, and the first movies was pretty good, but what in the heck? The supernatural, unexplained, and paranormal have always been an interest of mine, and this movie was suppose to be in that ally. Don't get me wrong here, there was some of that, but the title should be a dead give away. To me the whole movie was less X-Flies-ish, and more... read more

In grand “X-Files” manner, the film’s storyline is being kept under wraps. This much can be revealed: It is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show’s most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the complicated relationship between Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson) in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder’s pursuits.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2017 (29 movies items)

" HBO Now- 1hr. 44min. First Viewing I haven't seen the original incarnation of The X-Files (I have of the more recent episodes), so I can't attest to whether or not I Want to Believe is more akin to an extended episode than a motion picture, but I can say this; whatever the hell it is, it isn't very good. There are some okay moments, but the script is just a mess of ideas and threads that are eventually smashed together to create blunderous ending that contains no thrills and/or emotional resona"
