The last episode of season 9, and the presumed end of the series before its relaunch in 2016 aired on 19 May, 2002,  six years later Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are put into action again, and so am I as I investigate the cinematic entries for the Sci-Fi Chronicles book….

The X-Files: Fight the Future (1998) – Rob Bowman

Around The House – Sue’s X-Files Collection

A look inside most of the items that make up my X-Files collection thus far.  There are some things I didn’t include here (VHS copies, small items I couldn’t find like fan club documents and my wee alien head necklace, for example), but this is definitely the bulk of it. And, of course, two-thirds of…

Fan Expo Day 4

Somehow, Day 4 of Fan Expo has come and gone – and it’s all over for another year. Wow. It’s been an amazing weekend, and each day just seemed to hold the bar or raise it in terms of awesomeness. This morning should have been a sign! Sue and I checked in at the Media…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

It is time to head back to Paradise, Massachusetts. This time around, Robert B. Parker’s creation of Police Chief Jesse Stone (Tom Selleck) is involved in an investigation that is not based on the series of Jesse Stone novels.

The Pact (2012)

Featured as the second film of the double bill at the opening of the Toronto After Dark – Summer Nights program, we saw The Pact last night. It’s going to be hard to talk about a lot of the particulars of the film without some heavy spoilers, so you have been warned! First off, let’s…
