The X Files: I Want to Believe

 (2008)

The X Files: I Want to Believe Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny re-team to unravel a bizarre case right out of “The X-Files.” Amidst an eerily deceptive calm, F.B.I. agent Monica Bannan is abducted. Not only does the search for the missing woman ignite sparks between partners Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), it defies the boundaries of science, the supernatural and the terrifying spaces in between!

For more about The X Files: I Want to Believe and the The X Files: I Want to Believe Blu-ray release, see the The X Files: I Want to Believe Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The X Files: I Want to Believe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p, compressed using AVC Mpeg-4 and preserving the film's original aspect ratio of 2.40:1, I Want to Believe on Blu-ray is a faithful reproduction of the film that was shown in theaters. The movie was shot with both 35mm film as well as high definition video cameras and there are occasions where the transitions from film to video are apparent. I noticed instances of banding during several of the nighttime scenes in shots where intense lights pierce through the darkness. It occurs consistently throughout the film and was also present theatrically. So, the transfer isn't at fault in this case. On the bright side, edge enhancement and noise is non-existent. In fact, digital annoyances are never a problem in the film. Contrast is also excellent and the film displays tremendous levels of shadow detail. One other issue that is worth noting lies in the style of photography present in the film. There's a lot of handheld camera being used in the outdoor scenes of I Want to Believe and that often gives the picture an out-of-focus appearance. There is very little depth of field to this film; the focus pullers must have had a hell of a time keeping some of the longer shots in focus while the camera panned between characters. Naturally, this isn't the fault of this Blu-ray encode, but it is worth noting for those who find such stylistic choices bothersome.


The X Files: I Want to Believe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I Want to Believe arrives on Blu-ray with an impressive DTS HD-Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack that does an eloquent job of helping to build and sustain the film's chill-factor. Unlike its predecessor, I Want to Believe is a mostly dialogue-driven film that values expository conversation over explosions and fireworks. There are a few scenes that do up the decibel levels in your home theater, but they are few and far between. The majority of the film centers around conversations, and, as such, this soundtrack was tasked with being sure that every last syllable is perfectly presented. In that respect, it succeeds wildly. For those looking for something more akin to Transformers, you won't be finding it here. As in the first film, Mark Snow's outstanding musical score is well preserved and adds its own creepy element to what transpires on screen. I Want to Believe features a high quality soundtrack that, while low on the excitement factor, still maintains enough atmosphere and ambiance to effectively serve the story.
