All right Marco, let me run to the nearest Redbox location and rent this recently released DVD, The X Files, I Want to Believe. Would you send me a link to your review, so I can include it in my blog.

"The X-Files: I Want to Believe" had an unfortunately brief tour of theaters before disappearing, perhaps due to its lack of alien bounty hunters, sentient black oil or shady government conspiracies. While the series' monster-of-the-week episodes fared well, on the big screen "I Want to Believe's" take on organ harvesting seems too small to command the attentions of former FBI agents Mulder and Scully.

The Good: You want a comprehensive making-of documentary? "Trust No One" is for you. Even split into three parts, the doc is meaty and filled with fairly candid interviews from the cast and crew. In many ways, it's more fascinating than the feature presentation, thanks to the drama of trying to resurrect a beloved but extremely convoluted (plot-wise) television series on the big screen. Series co-creators Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz give good commentary, if somewhat dry at times.
