Horror films are a tricky business. Actually they aren’t all. Basically if you make any horror film no matter how bad, people will go see it and it will earn a sequel. But making a good horror film is very tricky. I love good horror films, which means I don’t like a lot of horror [...]
I really thought THE BLING RING would be the movie that brought some redemption to Sofia Coppola. After two consecutive disasters in MARIE ANTOINETTE and SOMEWHERE, her finest film LOST IN TRANSLATION seems like a long time ago. But after THE BLING RING debuted at Cannes, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to do anything [...]
WORLD WAR Z will be hitting theaters in just a few short weeks and the marketing team needs to get their stuff in gear. Today we get a new poster that doesn’t do much to titillate the senses. Brad Pitt standing alone on top of a building looking at a destroyed city isn’t as exciting [...]
Since his movies don’t appeal to a wide audience, not everyone is a fan of Noah Baumbach. His films include THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, MARGOT AT THE WEDDING and GREENBERG, along with FRANCES HA, which recently premiered at Cannes. But he’s developed a fanbase, kind of like a slightly less successful version of Wes [...]
THE HANGOVER PART III catches up with the Wolf Pack as they host an intervention to convince Alan (Zach Galifinakis) to receive help from a facility in Arizona called New Horizons after the death of Sid, Alan and Tracy’s father. En route the Pack is attacked and run off the road by a mobster, Marshall, [...]
Lets face it, sequels are rarely better than the original. Usually, the higher up in numerical sequels a film goes, the quality drops exponentially. However, sometimes the third in a series, while perhaps still not as good as the first, is better than the sequel. So I’ve compiled a list of 10 franchises where the [...]
In 1943, the Germans established Stalag Luft III, built for the sole purpose of housing the finest escapees any POW camp has ever known. There was really only one problem for the German captors: it housed the finest escapees any POW camp has ever known. And so it’s not long before one of the prisoners, [...]
There’s a lot going on in the first trailer for WE’RE THE MILLERS, but I think the only thing anyone is going to remember is that it features Jennifer Aniston stripping. I’m not complaining, but I get nervous when movies try to sell tickets on one gimmick. But if the thought of Jennifer Aniston doing [...]
I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt is universally loved as an actor, since his days on ‘Third Rock From The Sun’ and even earlier. But the real question is; can Joseph Gordon-Levitt write and direct a movie that he’s starring in? Well, we’ll soon find out as the young actor has just completed DON JON and the [...]
Spike Jonze is definitely one of the most original and peculiar filmmakers to work in Hollywood. That seems like a big statement but when you consider his wonderfully array of films: BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, ADAPTATION and most recently 2009′s WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, it makes more sense. He also directed perhaps my favorite music [...]

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.
