You are completely annoying. Your legacy is being destroyed in my mind and you are turning into that old guy that starts talking to you for no reason and won’t leave you alone.

In a football sense he’s absolutely killing the Packers. How can that organization move forward with these side antics going on?

It’s now be reported that Brett Farve has been offered $20 million to NOT play for the Pack. Details aren’t completely available, but Green Bay is set to offer him this money over several years to simply go away.

Another option is to trade him to the Vikings or Bears, inter-divison rivals they wanted to avoid dealing with.

Look, I love the NFL. Even after moving away, I still have Indianapolis Colts season tickets, but Farve is absolutely ruining my experience with the league because that’s all anyone in the media wants to discuss.

Brett, stop pissing everyone off and just go away. Save what little dignity you still have and stop being a baby. No one would have thought less of you if you had just said at the end of last season you wanted to return. Remember that Farve had a great 2007 and could certainly play a few more years and still be effective.

I loved the X-Files. I thought it was one of the best written shows ever made. Chris Carter is a genius. The adjectives to describe the show (even the 9th and final season), are nearly endless. Having said all that, I went to see the first showing on opening day of the latest X-Files movie.

Of course I had I expectations for a movie that is 7 years in the making to a show that helped make the Fox network what it is. I left with a feeling of disappointment and distaste for what was put together in this production. Like the previous movie, Fight the Future, you absolutely HAD to have seen the series and followed it pretty well to know what was going on. Right there that limits the audience immediately. The crowd of about 25 people in the theatre were clearly fans of the show though.

There are numerous references to specific shows and incidents, and in a way picked up where it left off with Mulder being wanted by the FBI. Scully was told to get Mulder on a case and all past crimes would be forgiven. Both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are clearly older than when they were last seen on the small screen show, but after a few minutes they are right back in character and play their most known roles efficiently.

The biggest issue I had with the movie is that it was nothing special about the plot at all. The final 5 or 6 episodes of the series tied up loose ends all over the place. John Doggett’s son’s case being put to rest, Scully’s son William, the death of the Lone Gunmen, The Smoking Man’s’ “third death”, and of course Mulder’s return and ultimate escape from the FBI. Where was the big plot in this movie? All this movie turned out to be was a big reunion for Mulder and Scully with the FBI solving a case that involved little paranormal activity, something that the show itself was based on in the first place. This irks me the most because if felt nothing like the X-Files. It’s as if Mulder and Scully were involved in another show and were making guest appearances as themselves.

Throw into the mix that there were zero returning characters from the show until the last 30 minutes when the guy I most expected to be in it, Walter Skinner finally appeared. They really couldn’t have Doggett or Monica Reyes, or anyone else from the show on there?

I expected a big deal, an FBI cover up, ANYTHING about aliens, something to reference a real paranormal plot line from the show. What I got was a somewhat psychic priest and nothing else.

Perhaps the best part of the movie was the previews where I got to see the first trailer for Saw V. It lasted all but 20 seconds and showed no footage, but it means that the next installment is only 3 months away.

The reviews for this movie were mixed but a lot of them said only devoted fans of the show will truly enjoy it. I beg to differ. I left unhappy and shocked at the lack of quality put into this movie. True fans of one of the best shows ever deserve better.
