Aziz (Yahya Gaier, 2005’s HET SCHNITZELPARADIJS) hates his job working as a low-level nothing, where he answers phones and takes insults from his boss. He needs some excitement in his life, whether in the form of long walks on the beach with high-heeled office babe Tess (Nadia Palesa Poeschmann, 2012’s ALS JE VERLIEFD WORDT) or […]
Sometimes independent films are able to convey their message in a more clear way than big budget films. It doesn’t happen often but every once in a while you get to see something on film that doesn’t have all of the big budget nonsense you’ve come to expect from your regular trips to the local […]

“Sometimes when I’m laying in bed at night trying to get to sleep, all I can think about is this goal of trying to paint a Vermeer…And, at the face of it, that seems almost impossible.” Those words come from inventor Tim Jenison, who openly admits he is far from being a painter. But he […]
I’m guessing that, due to the various studios he’s worked with, filmmaker Spike Lee doesn’t have a choice of what gets released as part of a home video “collection.” His two greatest films, in my opinion, are DO THE RIGHT THING (Universal) and MALCOLM X (Warner Brothers). Neither of those were included in Volume 1 […]
Ever since the 1983 release of NATIONAL LAMPOON’S VACATION, additions to the “family comedy” genre are held to a pretty high standard.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES repeated atop the weekend box office, beating out newcomers THE PURGE: ANARCHY, PLANES: FIRE AND RESCUE and SEX TAPE. The original PURGE opened to about $34 million while its sequel is on pace to get close to $30 million. Given how cheap these movies are (the sequel cost […]
In 2011, audiences were treated to THE RAID, a simple action movie showcasing the Indonesian martial arts form, Silat, led by star Iko Uwais. Although the story had very little plot or character development, I was still blown away by the direction of Gareth Evans and the fight amazing fight scenes. We live in a […]
Ten minutes after receiving AFFLICTED, I was a little bit grossed out. I thought, what the hell is this movie? Honestly!? Another crappy monster movie (I assumed zombies, incorrectly)? Do we really need more of those?.. [Cut to several nights later, I put the Blu-ray in my machine] Five minutes into the film, I can’t believe […]
It’s generally good news when a couple gets engaged, but it’s a hit-and-miss situation when it comes time to meet the future in-laws. That’s what Val (Dan Futterman, who would later earn an Oscar nomination for his CAPOTE screenplay) and Barbara (Calista Flockhart, one year away from landing the title role on ALLY MCBEAL) run […]

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.
