I really didn't care for the show in its last season but I liked Mulder and didn't really give the last season a chance. I liked the first movie but .. really did NOT like the second one.

I just could never get into the show or the characters. Fox Mulder should have been ashamed to pick up a check as he's the worst investigator ever. I did enjoy some of the stand-alone episodes such as the one where the alien disguised himself as a black ballplayer during the 1950's. Or the one with the mutant cannibals who kept the living torso of their mother under the bed. That episode was so outrageously bizarre and horrific that Fox only aired it that one time. It's also got one of the most disturbing and brutal murders I've ever seen in a TV show while Johnny Mathis singing "Wonderful, Wonderful" is playing.
The alien mythology that ran through the entire show never clicked with me as it felt as if the writers were making it up as they went along.
I've got a review of the second X-FILES movie on my hard drive somewhere...I'll dig around for it and let you guys get a look.

I mean, what would the aliens hope to achieve? If the myths/legends or whatever you want to call them are true, then we are a hopeless helpless planet who is so far behind in technology we might as well be in the Stone Age. Why would aliens want anything to do with us? We wouldn't be able to protect them, provide them with anything. Only desperate alien species would want to conquer us. I just think people were being paranoid.
