I want to believe

So, there's an X-Files movie coming out in two weeks. I think I may be the only person I know who is interested in it, which makes me kind of sad. I'm actually really looking forward to it. Sure, it's been ages since the show went off the air, and even longer since Mulder and Scully were the main characters, but I still have very fond memories of it. It's supposed to be a completely standalone story and not get into all of the ridiculously complex backstory, which is just about a requirement at this point since nobody remembers most of it. And that will probably make it a better overall movie than the first, even though I, as a huge fan at the time, really liked that one too.

Since this post is rather short, I'll leave you with my favorite X-Files quote, from the episode "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas" co-starring Ed Asner ("Maurice") and Lily Tomlin:

Maurice: You know why you think you see the things you do?
Mulder: Because I have seen them?
Maurice: ‘Cause you're a lonely man. A lonely man chasing paramasturbatory illusions that you believe will give your life meaning and significance and which your pathetic social maladjustment makes impossible for you to find elsewhere. You probably consider yourself passionate, serious, misunderstood. Am I right?
Mulder: Paramasturbatory?
Maurice: Most people would rather stick their fingers in a wall socket than spend a minute with you.
