Movie Moments - The Village

No matter how much one tries to escape the evil in this world, they will fail. This is because evil is not 'out there' somewhere, hiding in the dark or hiding in the woods. Evil is 'inside' every one of us. Evil is in our hearts and it can only be fought from the inside-out.

Movie Moments - I Want to Believe (X-Files 2)

I Want to Believe... and I do!
by Eric Bumpus

I Want To Believe, the sophomore X-Files film and follow-up to the TV series, weaves another great post-modern tale about the love affair between Faith and Reason. As usual, the duality of Mulder's 'blind faith' and Scully's 'empirical science' play out within a nice parallel that culminates to a great finale of the series (at least currently -- I'm hoping for an X-Files III).
