Quite possibly the most difficult poll we've had here, but we thought we'd give it a try, even though I think the answers are going to be skewed. ;o)
Which X Files Movie did you prefer?
It's like choosing between hawt, wall-sex and deep, long, sleep-in-the-weekend-never-leaving-the-bed sex.I CAN NOT DO IT!
LMAO! I love the way you put it. I found it hard to pick.
Oh that's a perfect way of describing it.
Wait...is your icon because if it hadn't been for the bee, Scully and Mulder woulda been havin' that hawt wall-sex in the hallway in FTF?Beecause...that's awesome.
It has many other uses, but yes. And thanks. :)Edited at 2009-01-09 03:27 am (UTC)
I love you.
Damn it, LJ ate my previous comment.I'm gonna go with FTF, although I loved both movies. I loved IWTB for the intimate vibe it gave off, and for all the little inside jokes and winks to the longtime fans. But I think overall, FTF was the stronger movie. It fit more with the TV show, too.Come on, I saw you jiggle the handle.
Same here. I really, really love IWTB for many reasons, I've seen it many times by now, and I will always defend it. The choice wasn't easy, but when it comes down to it, FTF is the winner. By a split second.
While I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IWTB, I think that FTF still reigns as my favourite, because it's the one that really bought me back into the fandom a few years ago, also, I think Scully is a TINY bit hotter in FTF than IWTB.
GAH! I can't choose like that. I love them both, but for such different reasons! I am picking both! You can't stop me! lol~Mango
I can't answer this! They're so different and both right for the time they were made. Mulder and Scully were at such hugely different places in their lives in both of them that I don't think it's fair making me choose one over the other. So there lol. :p It's funny that I watched FTF right after watching IWTB in the cinema and thought 'WOAH' because IWTB seems very ... little in comparison. Slower moving, clearly a smaller budget, much less frenetic. But I think that a movie like FTF would have been totally out of character for them coming so long after the ending of the show. Annnnnd I just wrote an essay. Edited at 2009-01-08 01:33 pm (UTC)
Like it seems to be for many of you, this isn't the easiest question and my FTF vote is not due to any detriment I think IWTB has. I really do love that movie. However, I find myself craving FTF at random, something I don't do so much with IWTB. And so I believe I have a slight preference for Fight the Future.
I think it's impossible to choose--they're so different and so perfect--so I peeked at the results and voted for the "loser" in order to try to even things out. :)Edited at 2009-01-08 05:17 pm (UTC)
Good idea! I'm going to do this, too.
IWTB, if only because I still haven't completely figured out the mytharc. For me MOtW wins out every time.When it comes right down to it, I love both. Though I do wish that I would have had the chance to see FTF on the big screen.
This is hella hard. It's like choosing which one of your children you like best. I'll go with FTF since it was the first one and it was at the height of XF's popularity but oh how I love IWTB. So yeah FTF only because they were still running around together but I am still pissed about the hallway scene! lol
I guess I'm the only one who didn't find this very difficult. ;)
IIRC, I saw both on the big screen, and as a fan of the mytharc, I just thought FTF blew the story way up out of proportion and then the show never addressed it again. I know the film was meant to be so people who didn't watch the show could enjoy it and people who didn't see the film wouldn't miss much, but damn, it really bothers me now, all these years later.However, IWTB could be enjoyed by anyone, period.Yet I voted FTF, because I so passionately desire TXF3: UNTITLED ALIEN INVASION PROJECT due on 12/21/12, which would require continuity from FTF.
I choose I Want To Believe, because is such a shipper movie!
This was hard for me actually. I love FtF because it was a total and complete XF movie. It had everything and I loved everything. IWTB was good in a different way...I loved where M/S were in their relationship in that one. But for everything overall, FtF for me.Also, this is the first time I checked this community for a few days and my response is totally late :( What a bad co-mod I am.
That's quite a cruel thng to make us choose...I found it nearly impossibleI love both of them almost as much as each other, but for me, the first one has the edge. Maybe that's because I'm being influenced by my sister (she was the one who got me into it-she was absolutely obsessed), but I think that it was the better film.The second one, I Want To Believe, was also amazing. The ideas behind it were great. My bf thought it was rather pointless "because it had no aliens in it" but he's only seen a couple of episodes and the movies, and like most people, thought it was just about aliens. However, Mulder and Scully are so cute in the second film, so that sort of sways me towards it a bit more, but I still think that the first one was the best
