Hey man, I know. That's me bein' hip and in the vernacular.

I don't know Fairytale Fights... but I'm at work and considering the context of the conversation, I figure now is not the best time to google it.

I actually found myself following that for the plot only the first time around fast-forwarded all the "action" scenes. The acting was surprisingly good.

The ending ruined it though. Way too sappy and detached from the rest of the plot.




And no, for once I'm not being sarcastic.

Rock on fellow X-Phile/ Porno-Phile!

There were only a few moments that had be cringing. Scully's line about arresting "Satan's whore." That and that Mulder sacrificed the satanist to Lilith... seemed so out of character.

You'd think for a movie of this "type" they would have picked a better looking guy...

Actually as far as acting was concerned, Anthony Rosano gave the most convincing performance. Besides... he's really only there as stunt-cock.

The ending, too, like I said. It just didn't work without a few seasons' worth of buildup.

Yeah... but the fact that we got to see Scully get it on... finally... made up for the sappiness.


For a porno, it was a damn good production, I think.

I think the genre made it even more cringeworthy, since they could probably have found a way to saddle up even without icing it all with extra syrup.

It really should have been tied in more with the main plot. Or really given some context related to the first six seasons of relationship building (Sex-Files supposedly takes place in season 7). I mean Mulder acts as if he's getting some major confession off his chest and that it isn't something that had grown steadily. They almost shack up between season 5 and 6 (the first movie), for christ's sake. And now they're just coming around to realizing they need one another? Didn't fly.

I suppose you've all had enough of my Indy/Irina talk, so instead of my current desktop, I will post a cute cat picture that I sometimes use as a replacement:

It'd be funny if someone put up a picture of one of Window's default desktops and went "Here's my desktop".

My younger brother uses default backgrounds, he hates custom ones.

It's just Red Dead Redemption Wallpaper.

Here is how I do it:

-Press the "Prt Scr/SysRq" key on your keyboard.
-Open MS Paint
-Go to the edit tab
-Select copy
-Save the picture
-Go to a file-uploading site of your choice (I use tinypic.com)
-Copy the file after it's uploaded
-Paste it here
