The 2018 season of Fox’s “The X-Files” — the second of the revival and 11th overall — is staging a spooky Emmy campaign for five of its cast members.

‘The X-Files’ Season 11 finale: Are you happy with Gillian Anderson’s tearful goodbye as Scully? [Poll]

After playing FBI Agent Dana Scully on “The X-Files” for 25 years, Gillian Anderson finally said goodbye during Wednesday’s Season 11 finale. Scully’s final scene played out on a dock with longtime partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). After seeing their son William (Miles Robbins) gunned down by the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis), an emotional Scully confessed that Mulder wasn’t actually William’s father. When Mulder asked, “What am I now if I’m not a father?” Scully revealed that he still was a father … because she was pregnant. Are you happy with Anderson’s exit on “The X-Files”? Vote now in our poll below.

Watch The Thrilling Trailer For the Season Finale of The X-Files Season 11

The eleventh season of The X-Files is coming to an end. I don't know about you, but I've really enjoyed this latest season of The X-Files. There were some great and fun episodes. Fox has released the trailer for the season finale of the series and it looks like it will be a solid ending to the season as Mulder and Scully try to help their son. It looks like Mulder sees a lot of action in this season finale. The question is, will The X-Files continue after this or will this be the final episode of the series!?

With Gillian Anderson not coming back to the franchise, the future of the show is in limbo. But, creator Chris Carter has said that the series could continue without Gillian:

"I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without.

Andy Serkis Thinks the Oscars Is Getting Closer to Finally Nominating Motion-Capture Acting

Andy Serkis Thinks the Oscars Is Getting Closer to Finally Nominating Motion-Capture Acting
Andy Serkis has never been nominated for an acting Oscar, which many people will tell you is downright criminal. The actor has pioneered the art of motion-capture performances with acclaimed work in “The Lord of the Rings,” “King Kong,” and the “Planet of the Apes” franchise, and yet the Academy has remained incredibly resistant to nominating his performances. The issue of motion-capture Oscar snubs has been debated for years, but Serkis says progress is being made.

“Oh yeah, definitely,” Serkis told ScreenCrush when asked if the Academy will ever start nominating motion-capture acting. “I mean, the Academy is openly, they’ve written emails to the acting branch saying we have to now acknowledge performance in the broadest sense. So performance-capture, voice talent acting. And they’re asking the question: What is the epitome or the essence of a great performance? It doesn’t just have to mean seeing an actor’s face on screen.

Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)

Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)
Karin Konoval has already made her mark on “The X-Files” thanks to her iconic performances as under-the-bed villain Mrs. Peacock in “Home” and fortune teller Madame Zelma in “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose,” but her latest role(s) in this week’s “Plus One” could make her mark on the Emmys. As twins Judy Poundstone and Chucky Poundstone and their two dopplegangers, Konoval effortlessly portrays four complicated, quirky characters who have a telepathic link. And, oh yeah, did we mention Chucky just happens to be a man?

As we know, the Emmys love when actors take on multiple roles — just ask Tatiana Maslany who prevailed for portraying all those clones in “Orphan Black” (2016). Might Konoval earn her first career nomination at the 2018 Emmys for playing this gender-bending group of doppelgangers?

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 3 Recap: Back To Our Bread And Butter

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.To know someone intimately is to risk familiarity, and we all know what that breeds. Not that FBI Special Agents and ex-flames Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are contemptuous of each other, exactly. Their disdain is more often directed inward, at those subconscious voices that dissuade and derail, reminding them that the clock (on both their work and on life itself) is always ticking. The duo's flirty, jargon-heavy banter is, beyond its innumerable surface pleasures (could any other pair so bewitchingly debate Gastaut-Geschwind syndrome?), a defense mechanism against the devils within and without. Find that one person who you can most easily converse with, whose sentences you don’t just finish but practically prophesy, and nothing can hold you back. That’s how it should ideally work,

The X-Files season 11 episode 3 review: Plus One

Michael Ahr Jan 18, 2018

The intimacy between Mulder and Scully upstages a fun but shaky supernatural mystery, banking on familiar patterns. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

11.3 Plus One

The X-Files gets cut a lot of slack when it comes to episodes like Plus One even when its supernatural plot has a few holes. Everything about this week’s instalment was as familiar as a well-worn pair of jeans, which could result in critical complacency, and when the new dynamics of Mulder and Scully’s relationship are superimposed on top of what amounts to an episode-of-the-week in the classic style, all is somehow forgiven. In other words, this was an A+ character study with a C+ story.

Never in the life of The X-Files have we questioned how Mulder finds these cases, and we’re not about to start now.

‘The X-Files’ Review: ‘Plus One’ Features Silly Plotting but Solid Character Work (Plus a Surprise for Longtime Fans)
[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for “The X-Files” Season 11, Episode 3, “Plus One.”]

Previously, on “The X-Files”…

Mulder and Scully are FBI agents who investigate weird crimes. Sometimes those are stand-alone adventures. Also, they’ve been partners, off and on, professionally and personally, for 25 years now, though their exact relationship status has often been a bit nebulous.

This Week’s Dossier

After we see a young man spot his own double while driving drunk, it’s clear something weird is going on in a small rural Virginian community — confirmed by the fact that this is just one in a series of many other instances, where mysterious deaths are connected to the victims having seen their doubles beforehand. So it’s a good thing that Mulder and Scully, paranormal investigators, are on the case!

The partners figure out relatively quickly that at the core of the mystery are two very eccentric twins who like to play telepathic hangman

The X-Files Season 11 Episode 3 Review: Plus One

  • TVfanatic
This is the episode in which Karin Konoval returns.

Konoval is one of the most well-known actresses from The X-Files universe having played the mother under the bed on "Home."

On The X-Files Season 11 Episode 3, she plays a dual role as telepathic twins who have made a life for themselves playing hangman. Their game rules are a bit more unconventional than most other boys and girls.

This was a tough one to figure out. Was it serious, goofy, somewhere in the middle? 

Who doesn't love a doppelganger theory? When Mulder proposed they needed to check that out, it never would have dawned on me we were on our way to telepathic twins who dabbled in the oddest game of hangman I've ever seen.

Scully's scientific skepticism was on full power as she determined immediately the entire town was undergoing a mass phenomena, even after the doctor they visited admitted that

The X-Files Season 11 Review: Series Benefits from Age and Experience

  • TVfanatic
We're less than two weeks from the return of The X-Files Event Series - Second Chapter, the official term given to The X-Files Season 11 by Fox.

Critics received the first five episodes the second chapter, and herein I'll share thoughts on what we've seen so far.

Going by the numbers only, it seems likely the first half of the season will be better than the second, but even then, it should hold up well in comparison to the First Chapter of the Event Series. Here's why.

When speaking with Chris Carter at New York Comic Con, he noted that within the ten episodes we would be receiving three mythology episodes instead of the two. Bookends and one hybrid monster-of-the-week/mythology in the middle.

The problem with that from what I've seen so far is My Struggle III, the premiere of The X-Files Season 11, is by far the most ill-conceived of the five offered for review.

Episode one is called "My Struggle III" and it was written and directed by Chris Carter:

Picking up after the last event series’ cliffhanger, Mulder and Scully learn that they aren’t the only ones desperately searching for their long-lost son, William. The very fate of the world may depend on it.

Episode two is called "This" and it will include the return of Dean Haglund as Richard ‘Ringo’ Langly.

The Tension Builds in This New Promo Spot For The X-Files Season 11

We've got another promo spot for you to watch for The X-Files Season 11! As you'll see, the tension is building as Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are looking for their son. They also are forced to reluctantly team up with Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), who they seem to have lost trust in.

This next season will consist of ten episodes. Two of them will continue the saga story, and the rest will be more standalone "monster of the week" episodes. I'm so excited to see what creator Chris Carter and his team have in store. When teasing what we can expect, a previous report revealed:

With more monster-of-the-week episodes this season, fans can expect season 11 to be united in theme but varied in tone. After episode one delves into the Cigarette Smoking Man’s (William B. Davis) backstory and apparent family ties to Mulder, the second hour

‘War of the Planet of the Apes’ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Amiah Miller, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval | Written by Matt Reeves, Mark Bomback | Directed by Matt Reeves

Matt Reeves is telling us something: This is what happens when a blockbuster budget is used well. The third part of the Apes reboot, following Rupert Wyatt’s Rise and Reeves’ Dawn, may be the pinnacle of the series so far. In a universe of cinematic universes, War for the Planet of the Apes bucks the trend and feels like a different beast to its predecessors: a true next chapter, with a different mood and a new rhythm, and the balls to bring beloved characters to the end of their arc.

Following the catastrophic events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, in which civil war broke out between the proud Caesar (Andy Serkis) and the hateful Koba (Tony Kebbell), relations between humans and apes are at an all-time low.

Blu-ray Review – War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

War for the Planet of the Apes, 2017.

Directed by Matt Reeves.

Starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Judy Greer, Karin Konoval, Terry Notary, Michael Adamthwaite, Gabriel Chavarria, Max Lloyd-Jones, Sara Canning, Aleks Paunovic, and Chad Rook.

Synopsis:

The new Planet of the Apes reboot or prequel series, whatever you want to call it, comes to a conclusion with War for the Planet of the Apes, now out on a Blu-ray + DVD + digital copy set. While the film fell a bit short for me, I found the supplements worth a spin, and I appreciated director Matt Reeves’ thoughtful discussion of his approach to the movie.

Before Star Wars came along, the two primary franchises that captured my little-kid imagination in the early 70s were Star Trek and Planet of the Apes. However, being born in 1970 meant that I had to experience the former through reruns and the latter
