Following the trend from the third season, the fourth season introduces a single bad guy that challenges Nucky, this time in the form of Valentin Narcisse (Jeffrey Wright), who not only […]

Another week, another #1 spot at the weekend box office for Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. In fact, the top three films from last week repeated in their same spots this week as all newcomers failed to impress audiences. The first bummer of the weekend belonged to Pierce Brosnan’s NOVEMBER MAN, which left most critics […]
There is a small dot of light that progressively gets larger until it suddenly turns into a giant ball with rays beaming from it. The light seems to take different forms, eventually revealing an eye. A woman’s voice sounds out letters and words: S…Z…T…Ba, ba, K, Kuh…Zzz, B-B-buh, G-G-guh…F…Field, Fill, Film, Foil, Failed, Pills…Sell… The […]
Disney’s HERCULES debuted in theaters in 1997. After the lackluster performances of POCAHONTAS and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, it was time for the studio to hit the same stride as it did in the early ‘90s. Instead of taking the traditional route and basing their next animated film on a fairytale, the creators decided […]

Frank takes him to see his wife, Monica (Mario Cotillard, RUST […]
We have talked about the state of Hollywood quite often: reboots, remakes, reimagining… but one thing I have forgotten about (perhaps by choice) is the parody/lampoon film. These have been around for a long time but never have they been so focused on mediocrity as they are today. It is a natural result of the […]
Philadelphia has the image of an underdog and so it was a big deal in the national media that it would host the first Made in America Festival, held over Labor Day Weekend in 2012. On September 1st and 2nd of 2012, more than 70,000 attendees showed up at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway (thousands more […]
When the coach of a sports team has a “money” play in his or her pocket that simply “can’t miss,” they use it until the competition can figure out a way to make it miss. And if a weakness is not promptly discovered then the rest of the teams will simply mimic it until someone […]
Movie Reviews, Movie News, Movie Trailers, Blu-rays and More…
Welcome to Flix66.com, where you can find the latest Movie News along with in-depth Movie Reviews, Blu-ray Reviews and trailers for all of the latest movies. We offer some fun analysis on the industry in our features section where you can find some opinionated editorials on the latest happenings in the industry.

We also encourage you to leave comments on the posts, but please, keep them clean and be respectful of others.
If this is your first visit to Flix 66, then we invite you to take a look around. We bring a variety of different views and experiences to the movie news game, but nothing is more important than our love of film. We’re not pretentious snobs that find it necessary to mention an obscure French director every other article to make you think we’re brilliant film philosophers. At the same time, in regards to our reviews and editorials, we can defend our opinions with sufficient evidence and examples. It doesn’t matter if you have a Masters in screenwriting or if you’ve only seen a couple of movies, the content on this site is for everyone.
When it comes to our movie reviews, we believe in honesty as the best policy. We don’t care how many awards it’s received, who directed it, or if our cousin is a key grip; if we don’t like the movie, we’ll tell you we don’t like it and we’ll tell you why. Now, given the subjective nature of any form of entertainment, some may disagree with our opinions, but even if some disagree, you’ll know we’re not trying to suck up to a studio or butter up an actor to get a one on one interview. All members of the trusted staff of Flix 66 believe that there are too many sites out there that print cookie-cutter, follow-the-leader reviews and we’ve all vowed not to fall into that trap.
Because we certainly know that with the internet, there are many roads people can take for their movie news and commentary. We thank you for choosing ours.
