I wrote in the past that the new X-Files movie will fail. I still think it will. Slashdot put a poll up, and as much as unscientific this poll is, it actually reflects well what people want to see in the movie, and that’s not a “monster of the week” movie (the people who voted “canceled” are simply indifferent as they are obviously not fans).
The latest rumor is that the new movie is a prequel, taking place between seasons 8 and 9. But I don’t think that this will save the movie (plus Duchovny looks old now). I only hope that the movie won’t do as bad as I think it will, and FOX will give the go ahead for a third and final X-Files movie to bring closure to the colonization alien arc for good.
