X-Files, chiacchierata con Beyond the sea

La portata rivoluzionaria della serie, l´ipotesi terzo film, il parere dei fan e tanto altro ancora sono i protagonisti di questa piacevole intervista con la web master di Beyond the sea, il sito web punto di riferimento degli appassionati di X-Files.

FOX in America ieri ha festeggiato 25 anni di serie televisive. Nella lunga storia del canale della volpe c’è stata una grande serie che ha rivoluzionato il modo di concepire e realizzare un’opera ad episodi. Stiamo parlando ovviamente di X-Files che, come abbiamo già scritto da queste parti, potrebbe tornare col terzo film dopo le nove incredibili stagioni che si sono succedute dal 1993 al 2002. Per ricordare i grandi meriti della serie e parlare dell’eventuale terza pellicola abbiamo deciso di fare una chiacchierata con Francesca Marchini, la webmaster dell&rs ... [Continua a leggere]

Mark Snow speaks to 'Beyond the Sea'

Many moments of the show are still vivid in all fans mind thanks to the music, for example the "Scully's Theme" that plays during the pregnancy story arc. In order to get to orchestrate music like this, do you get inspiration from pictures or is that a separated creative process? I was inspired for "Scully's Theme" from the incredible emotion of the story. I actually felt like part of Scully's family, and it was almost a religious experience for me, and how great that I was able to use a live singer! The "Teaser" from "Trust no 1" episode, which music is based on works such as Tcha ... [Continua a leggere]

'Beyond the Sea' intervista Mark Snow

Molti momenti della serie sono rimasti nella memoria di tutti anche grazie ai commenti musicali, ad esempio il "Tema di Scully" che accompagna l'arco di storia della gravidanza di Scully. Per comporre brani come questi, ha tratto ispirazione dalle immagini o è stato un processo creativo separato? Per il “Tema di Scully" ho preso ispirazione dall’incredibile emozione della storia. Mi sono sentito davvero parte della famiglia di Scully, è stata un’esperienza quasi religiosa per me, ed è stato grandioso essere in grado di lavorare con una cantan ... [Continua a leggere]

Duchovny in «Voglio crederci»

UN SUCCESSO. Per nove stagioni consecutive «X-Files» è stata una delle serie tv più seguite, non solo negli Stati Uniti, dove è nata nel 1993. Ad attrarre il pubblico erano sopratutto i temi trattati, come il paranormale, le teorie del complotto, le mutazioni genetiche, gli Ufo e gli alieni. Nel ’98 è uscito il primo film, «X-Files il film», sempre centrato sulle indagini della coppia Mulder e Scully. Nelle foto: in alto, David Duchovny nel nuovo film e, qui accanto, nella serie tv con Gillian Anderson. ... [Continua a leggere]

Troppi misteri nella mia vita

Ci ha conquistate dando la caccia ad alieni e fantasmi. Ma David Duchovny confessa che è stufo di risolvere enigmi. Ora vuol farci ridere. Ci riuscirà?

È stato per anni il serissimo agente dell’Fbi Fox Mulder, specializzato nel risolvere misteri e dare la caccia a fantasmi, mostri, extraterrestri. Poi David Duchovny ha deciso di abbandonare il personaggio che l’ha fatto amare dal grande pubblico. Nell’ultima serie di X-files è apparso solo in pochi episodi, e ora tenta il genere comico con il film di Ivan Reitman Evolution. Ma anche qui, per ironia della sorte, il suo personaggio ha a che fare con degli alieni bizzarri e minacciosi, arrivati sulla Terra con un meteorite. Signor Duchovny, rieccola a combattere ...

Behind the X-Files: The File on Mark Snow

Mark Snow is best known for his X-Files opening whistle and legions of fans know his name through the mysteriously cultish show. But there is no mystery behind Mark’s talent as an accomplished film and television composer and with 1999, Mark proves that the new millennium is full of diverse possibilities. His latest show with Chris Carter (Harsh Realm) debuts in the Fall and his feature Crazy in Alabama marks the directorial debut of Antonio Banderas and a foray into dark comedy. And although Millennium died a slow ratings death last year, Snow’s career has never been more ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files: Chris Carter Six Underground

There’s something different about TXF this year. By all rights, a series in its sixth season should be flagging, as the writers run short of ideas, the actors lose their energy and settings and scenarios begin to look frustratingly familiar. Furthermore, following in the wake of last year’s blockbuster movie, one would expect a sense of anti-climax, a feeling that it’s all so much smaller and less significant on the tv screen. This hasn’t happened. Against the odds, fans and critics have been quick to praise the latest series as one of the best yet, which ... [Continua a leggere]

Secrets and Lies

No more guessing, no more theories – X-Files creator Chris Carter says he’s finally blowing the lid off TV’s longest-running conspiracy. but where do Mulder and Scully go from here?

X-Files actors live in mortal fear of it: the big kiss-off from series creator Chris Carter. The bell doesn’t toll often for regular characters (among the unlucky few: Deep Throat, X and Bill Mulder), but the possibility hovers, like an alien spaceship, over the cast. For one actor, the phone rang days before shooting began on a momentous two-parter (airing Feb. 7 and 14), a sweeps event that Fox is trumpeting as “The X Files conspiracy…exposed!” Divulging the identity of the doomed player would, of course, ruin the second episode’s penultimate shoc ...

The Millennial Comet: Interview with Mark Snow

Interview conducted and edited by "Millennial Comet" staff writer and Editor-in-Chief Brian A. Dixon (

Here is a man who, to X-Files and Millennium fans, requires no introduction. From day one of both series he has been composing some of the most powerful underscore music we could ever hope for. He’s used sounds in some of the moodiest, most atmospheric, and most frightening manners possible. That man is, of course, Mr. Mark Snow. You’ll find his name in the credits of every Millennium episode made. A powerful part of the Ten-Thirteen crew, Mr. Snow is the creator of the wailing violin sounds that are the very soul of Millennium’s onscreen presence. He’s given pa ... [Continua a leggere]

Conspiracy Kingpin – Mixing truth with lies, Chris Carter fashions The X-Files

Chris Carter, master of the X-mythos, keeper of the conspiracies, sounds quite pleased with his first cinematic X Files. “I am very pleased. I thought that The X Files translated wonderfully to the big screen,” he enthuses. “I thought the story worked. I thought the special effects were really nice, that they serviced the story well – you wouldn’t call this an FX-driven movie. I felt the scares were there. People jumped and they laughed and, hopefully, they were moved. It also sets up season six of The X Files beautifully. It did all I could ask of a ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files producer can’t let go of Vancouver

Director Chris Carter may be busy giving a new look to his famous TV series in L.A., but he hasn’t forgotten his roots in Vancouver. The X-Files may have fled the rain but Chris Carter, the southern California-raised surfer dude turned pop-culture savant, has quietly donned his hipwaders for more wet nights in the city that gave The X-Files its dark, brooding look for five years. On Sunday, Carter’s most ambitious X-Files yet — an episode called Triangle, a loose amalgam of The Wizard of Oz, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope and Casablanca revisited on acid — ... [Continua a leggere]

As The X-Files moves to L.A., the series’ stars consider season six

Where does a television show go when it’s coming off a summer that saw the release of a successful feature film, the relocation of production, and a whopping 16 Emmy Award nominations? Well, when you’re the X-Files, you keep on doing what you do best: Throwing curve balls to your audience while striving to reinvent yourself and raise the creative bar even higher. The X-Files is due for a shake up. After all, the series is entering its sixth season, a time in any show’s life span during which lethargy can set in and stories can become stale. But the series&rsquo ... [Continua a leggere]
