Radar Blips - The X Files: Fight the Future

The Year: 1998

The Players: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, and a little role for Lost's John Locke.

The Take: $84 Million

What's an X-File?: These are the FBI's case files for supernatural or other worldly encounters.

Why you should see it: This movie was my first exposure to the world of The X Files. The movie ties into the series (coming midway through the series' run) but stands alone on its own. As it turns out, the movie offers answers at breakneck speed as compared to the snails pace of the series. The movie has aliens, and mysteries, and quite a bit of action. Take it as a Cliff's notes to the tv series.
