X-Files Movie, The - Vacation in Antarctica
When the consortium have their meeting in London it is '6.47 pm' and still full daylight which means that it is summer in London. Summer in London means winter in Antarctica. Mulder goes to Antartica where the temperatures would have been between -40 and -67 degrees Centigrade (not even counting the windchill factor). After rescuing Scully, there is no steam from their breath, no frosty eyebrows, no frozen noses or lips. Neither are wearing gloves, so they would certainly have lost fingers, and Scully her toes from frostbite even though she was barefoot (actually socks). Also, in the Antarctic winter, there is only twilight! - no daylight as seen in the movie. Even if it were summer in Antarctica, with bright sunny days (as in the movie) the temperatures would still be from -10 to -30 Centigrade (not counting the windchill factor). . That's still cold!

First of all, it is a movie! Some allowances have to be made for movies because if everything were realistic in movies, then there wouldn't be so many! Second, perhaps the heat from the spaceship warmed up the entire area enough to keep them from immediately freezing. And I think I did see some ice on their eyebrows and even hints of breath. You have to remember, it is probably very dry in Antarctica and so you wouldn't be able to see their breath as well. Also, they didn't film that part in Antarctica, but they did film it in an air-conditioned studio with real snow and ice, so it was pretty cold.
