If wiki is to be believed, the x-files movie was delayed since 2004 (2001?), and they're still going through with it now.

The series has been off the air coming on ten years

Wha--?

(Looks it up)

...Jesus Christ, Bal, I'm ALREADY in a "my God time is slipping away from me" frame, and you had me scared for a minute there.

Six years is NOT what I would call "coming on ten years".

and the last movie, released when the series was at it's absolute height as cultural icon, was a colossal failure.

Colossal failure in what sense?  It wasn't movie of the year, but it didn't bomb.

If you mean more in terms of whether it worked as an X-Files story, though, I'm inclined to agree.  Not only did it fail at that, it brought the show down with it.  Once X-Files got popular, it was never quite the same.

Not only that, but the promotion has been terrible (I didn't even know it was coming out until a couple weeks ago), and it's coming out right in the middle of the strongest movie summer in probably a decade. What a pointless endeavor.

Those two things are related.  Who's going to bother to promote it when it comes out the week after Dark Knight and the same week as the new Will Ferrell movie?

Anyway.  I've seen pretty much everything else I want to see (except the new Will Ferrell movie and Pineapple Express), so I'll probably give it a look; why not?  I wouldn't say I'm excited about it, but it's something to do.

I tend to think of X-Files ending around 99, I guess because that's the last time it was watchable. Didn't mean to set off your pacemaker, grandpa.

Absolutely everyone i know around here is planning to see the new x-files movie. We all spent like a month going through the DVD box set and came to the conclusion that season seven is probably the best, ever.

Captain Jack Harkness to become Captain America?

Currently just a rumor, but he actually might be a good fit.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

...No, you broke it.  Batman: Year One is pretty good.

And I hear good things about Ronin and Daredevil, even from the biggest Frank Miller hater I know.  I should probably get around to reading those someday.

Ehh, while not as offensively bad as most of his stuff it still struck me as pretty bland.

Which I guess isn't the same as "completely ridiculous", true.

I hear he was mugged in the early 1980's but haven't found a source for that.

It WOULD explain a lot.

(Nothing about it on Wikipedia.  But I did go in and slap a "citation needed" on the alleged Alan Moore "tough guys" quote.  Because I've seen the goddamn thing referred to in dozens of places but never once seen the full quote or a primary source.  AFAIC it's approaching "640k should be enough for anybody.")

A lot, yes, but not everything.  What about the omnipresence of prostitutes?

Maybe he was mugged by a prostitute.

Then again, I know a dude who was mugged by a prostitute, and it only BRIEFLY turned him into an unhinged Libertarian.
