I wanted to believe, too, but they're really making it hard for me.
This movie is like an extra long episode. It's got no real tie to any of the plot strings in the series and is really more like a stand alone story with the X-files characters pasted in.
It doesn't focus on the alien conspiracy. I would have said that's a good thing before, since most of the good episodes were focused on the unsolved mysteries and ghost stories, but this one doesn't really work, especially for a big ticket movie.
