THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) – 9.5/10 “The stuff that dreams are made of.” When listing the greatest film detectives of all time, the first name most think of is Sam Spade, the San Francisco-based P.I. created by Dashiell Hammett in the novel The Maltese Falcon, on which John Huston’s essential 1941 film noir is based.

Billy Corben. A name that automatically clicked on in my head. So I looked him up and realized that he worked on one of the ESPN’s 30 FOR 30 documentaries I was really interested in watching, BROKE. It was a documentary that mainly used stock footage and interviews without too much in the way of […]

At his graduation party, Jesse makes an offhand comment about a downstairs neighbor and the wailing and moaning he hears […]
Art can build up but first it must destroy. We’ve all heard tales of the ‘starving artists’ who live for nothing but their work, but few could be found as dedicated to these principles as the Shinoharas, Ushio and Noriko (and their son Alex). The famed boxing painter, his wife, and their tumultuous relationship/partnership and […]

David has finally decided to see his girlfriend at three in the morning after a hectic day and he’s less than enthusiastic about the bombshell she just dropped on him. She’s pregnant. It’s the latest in a growing list […]
It’s practically a rule that whenever an animated film does moderately well at the weekend box office, it has to have a sequel. But typically, the performance of the sequel will tell you whether or not the first film made money because kids needed something to do or because they actually liked it. In the […]
Sports movie fans probably wouldn’t take the time to wonder what would happen if the Charlestown Chiefs entered the rink with the Mighty Ducks, or if Henry Rowengartner was subjected to more hours of child labor than Billy Heywood. But they have likely pondered and debated, Who would still be standing if Rocky Balboa squared […]
A car zooms down the dirty highway, kicking up dust behind it. The driver, with a silver briefcase by his side, outraces a train to get to its destination: the middle of the desert. Waiting for him is another man, a drug runner, with another briefcase. He sets a timer and waits for the explosion. […]
Freedom. Today that’s the most important word for Eugene Brown (Gooding), who is being released after doing 17 years for bank robbery. He is a much different man than the one who entered prison.

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.
