Federal buildings being bombed, FEMA plotting to overthrow the government, and extra-terrestrials plotting with The Syndicate to turn the human race into drone slaves. In the 90's, this dense mystery made up the heart of The X-Files television show, where agents Mulder and Scully investigated paranormal activities and uncovered a plot by aliens to take over the earth. With a hardcore audience of fans, in 1998 The X-Files took the leap to the big screen, hoping to appease old fans and bring in new ones. Does this work as a stand-alone film, and does raising the stakes to the big screen pay off for fans? Listen to find out!

Paul W.S. Anderson's match-up between Aliens and Predators may have left many fans of both franchises out in the cold, but the box office tallies made a rematch inevitable--thus 20th Century Fox gives us Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. Attempting to right past wrongs, the studio made this film with a "hard R" rating, including an unrated cut on DVD, and gave the directing reins to the special effects duo, the Brothers Strause. Was the battle so much sweeter the second time around? Listen to Stuart, Arnie, and Brock to find out!
