The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Over the past several months, the cast and crew of The X-Files: I Want to Believe considered it a badge of honor to be as tight-lipped about the plot of their film as possible. Internet searches met with futility. Spoiler sites were useless. The film’s trailers were little more than a jumble of unintelligible images. As it turns out, the tremendous secrecy was not to hide the film’s plot until the last minute, but rather hide the fact that The X-Files: I Want to Believe is arguably the dullest film to hit theater screens this year.Read more »

Can the bat be that good?

I know other critics are also liking "The Dark Knight," but Gazette critic Brandon Fibbs sings four-part harmony in his praises.

His review, which is in tomorrow's GO! section, says:

To call “The Dark Knight” the greatest superhero movie ever made is an understatement of titanic proportions. And yet, conversely, the film is so devoid of camp and superhero trappings and is presented with such assured realism, that it hardly feels like a superhero movie at all. The most eagerly anticipated popcorn blockbuster of the summer is, in fact, one of the greatest crime epics ever made, taking its place beside such films as “The Godfather,” “The Untouchables” and “Heat.”


The movie opens midnight Friday, (which is tonight). I want to know what you think. Please place your reviews under comments here.

Hancock rocks!

I'd been disappointed with the early summer movies.
"Iron Man" was fun, although the climax was a bit too reminiscent of "Transformers."
"Indiana Jones" disappointed.

Then came "WAL-E"-- the most important animated film of our time. I agree with Brandon that this is Pixar at it's best, and that's something to behold.

But the biggest surprise of the summer so far has been "Hancock." I'm so glad that not only did the previews not give the twist away, but even though I knew there was a twist coming, it didn't hurt the film at all. This is a movie that starts as one thing and rises to a higher level. See it.
