The X Files: Conspiracy Theories

I have always enjoyed watching conspiracy theory movies. It's an entertaining premise when governments or secret organizations plot to manipulate the masses and a hero has to expose them to the public. I'm not a tin foil hat wearer but I consider myself much more open minded about the subject than many people.

Over the years when terrorist attacks and mass shootings have occurred, I have been amazed at how quickly people surface on the internet claiming many of these events are staged with actors and are merely false flags orchestrated by the government or other secret organizations. There may be some truth to some of these claims, but there is a big segment of people who are ultra paranoid and it is probably because they've seen every episode of the X Files.

Speaking of the X-Files, I've recently been watching them on DVD with my kids and I forgot how much I enjoy them. Aliens, monsters, government cover ups, and the unexplained. I'm looking forward to the updated episodes that will be released in 2018.

Anyway, some of my favorite movies that feature conspiracy theories and secret organizations are:

Capricorn One
DaVinci Code
Conspiracy Theory
The Arrival
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Three Days of the Condor
Sherlock Holmes
Assassins Creed
James Bond Movies

What's not to like about the idea of an underdog fighting against evil forces? I rank that genre right up there with the prison break movie.
