Indiana Jones / X-Files

Long-awaited sequels Performance: " Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" and "The X-Files: I Want to Believe" have huge fan bases. The Harrsion Ford starrer scored more than $315 million facing a stiff "Sex and the City" challenger. The return of Mulder and Scully netted upwards of $20 million. Assessment: The "X-Files" results were disappointing, both commercially and critically. It may have been a couple of years too long past the fervor, and the story didn't provide a direct connection. With " Indiana Jones," the fans followed, but not all of the critics. There were a few raves, a few pans and many calling it hit-and-miss. That sounds average. Grades: Indy: C / X Files: F
