The X-Files made this list of best (and worst) movie adaptations of TV series.

Fight The Future made the best list. :)

I Want to Believe made the worst list. :(

And currently... XF3 isn't making any list!

But seriously - thanks for posting. Not exactly surprising news, and with the last endeavor rated "worst" this may be one of the many reasons why FOX ain't rushing into a possible repeat of IWTB....

Thanks for the update Truth, and I agree that the reason we're not getting X Files 3 is because of IWTB.

Well, I'm not surprised; however, I was happy to have IWTB after waiting for so long for a second movie. However, to be honest with myself, IWTB is right up there with eps that I'm not really crazy about... like, ummm.... Kaddish. That's an ep that I'm just not rushing out to see.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I absolutely love, "The X Files: I Want to Believe." It's very different from, "The X Files: Fight the Future," but it is just as brilliant, possibly even more so. I think that IWTB didn't do well (especially in the USA ;-) ) because it was simply too complicated and multi-layered for the average cinema-goer.

I'm still hopeful that we will have a "The X Files 3" eventually.

You know, I respected IWTB for being so purposely non-commercial. But I don't think they had to be quite THAT non-commercial. I mean, atmospheric shots of people in the snow only go so far. A story with higher stakes and villains that actually registered would have been nice. It could have been a lot better, I have to say that. Though I do love all that stuff in the snow.

I love IWTB too, but I understand why it didn't resonate with audiences very much.

I just looked at Rotten Tomatoes tonight and it gets/got about the same reaction from the masses that it gets/got from critics. Only about 1 out of 3 people really like it. Which is too bad, but it's the reality of the impact it had on the general movie-going public. :(
