The X-Files Movie (1998) expands upon the threat of alien invasion that was a major part of the paranoia mythology of the series. FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Skully encounter more cover-ups, outright denials and danger as they continue their uphill battle to uncover the truth despite the X-Files being "closed." The film plays like an episode, which is what makes the movie work-that viewers are still still left scratching their heads and wondering at the end keeps the magic of the series intact. Fun for fans and those new to the story alike.

Trivia: The bees in the dome scene are real (there were about 30,000 of them). David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were actually in the dome with them, and neither of them wore protective gear, but weren't stung nonetheless.
