I was really letdown by it. It just didn't have the old X-Files feel to it and the story was pretty weak. And my biggest problem with the movie was they spent so much time trying to break Mulder and Scully apart, but that's not what any fan wants to see. We want to see the two of them out doing their thing, but that's not really what you get here. I understand they're trying to update the characters and show how they've grown, but they focus more on that. What made The X-Files great was the interplay between Mulder and Scully and really good scripts and the movie is just lacking in both areas. I'd definitely suggest you wait for DVD.

Still haven't seen it yet - not sure if I'll go to the theatre or wait for the DVD.
1) The X-Files 2) The Outer Limits* 3) The Twilight Zone
*NB: The original b&w of The Outer Limits, not the terrible newer version - I have the entire series on DVD, classic that used to scare me as a kid!
I didn't include LOST, which I love, like they did in their rankings 'cause I don't classify it under the sci-fi genre, or it would be right up there.
There were some questionable calls on that list, in my opinion, but I do not claim to be a Sci-Fi expert. However, I would have liked to see Eureka make that list. In its third season now, it is the highest rated show on the Sci-Fi channel.
I was a huge fan of the series from episode one, through the first 4-5 seasons, but I started losing interest in it. They drug out the mythos of the series wayyyyy to long and took so long answering questions that it got boring to me. I loved the earlier episodes that centered around stories outside of mythos, but they took way too long to answer questions and I finally stopped watching when Mulder left.
In my opinion, it took way to long for this movie to come out, and for the story to be outside the mythos, I'm not terribly interested in seeing it. Sounds like a DVD rental for me.
