Dom Hemingway has been waiting twelve years for those jail cell doors to open. He’s had a bit of a ride inside, eating pudding in the cafeteria and delivering monologues about his, uh, Little Dom, while being pleasured by a fellow inmate, but when it’s time to go, he gets a big grin on his […]
Sequels can be tricky propositions. Filmmakers want them to be original creations, but they can’t forget what made the first movie so popular. It is a delicate balancing act. That comes into view when reviewing RIO 2. “Rio” was a box office smash that was quite fun and seemed to satisfy both critics and fans. […]
Traditionally, sequels tend to open higher with each passing sequel, otherwise, they stop getting sequels. But THE EXPENDABLES has bucked that trend and with each passing film, they perform worse and worse at the weekend box office. The first film opened with $34.8 million, the second with $28.6 million and the third couldn’t even crack […]
In a galaxy located in the not too far away future (to be specific, Chicago) the human race will comprise of five factions. The factions are Dauntless (for the brave), Amity (the peaceful ones – lots of farmers here), Erudite (the ones with the brains), Abnegation (the selfless ones), and Candor (not afraid to tell […]
THE OTHER WOMAN is a new female-led comedy in the ilk of BRIDESMAIDS or THE HEAT with the twist of being essentially a revenge-comedy a la THE FIRST WIVES CLUB (1996). After doing reasonably well at the box office THE OTHER WOMAN arrived on Blu-ray this week. So what’s the deal with this newest adult-comedy […]
Henry Altmann sits in traffic with a smug look on his face. He has a long list of things he hates (from The Weather Channel to the subwoofers), which he probably adds to every morning. When he’s hit by a taxi, he lays into the driver with a tirade about the key differences between red, […]
Comedy legend Robin Williams died today at the age of 63. The exact cause of death is being investigated, but early reports are saying Robin Williams may have taken his own life due to asphyxia. The actor had been struggling with depression for several years, which he openly talked about in interviews. He also had […]
When you think about the story of Noah and the Ark chances are you don’t conjure visions of rock monsters and more science fiction fodder. Darren Aronofsky, the eclectic auteur responsible for so much confusing allegory (PI, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, THE FOUNTAIN), brings a new interpretation of this biblical story to life with NOAH, […]
Michael Bay’s reboot of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES had just about everything you needed to alienate the fanboys. They didn’t stick to the mythology, they cast Megan Fox (who all fanboys say they hate, but secretly love), they used CGI turtles and the turtles just didn’t look like what they were used to. But […]
Although named after a video game, the truth is that NEED FOR SPEED could have been called anything. I’m not sure what, if any, relation it has to the video game, other than featuring a bunch of fancy cars you probably haven’t heard of. The name, I presume, is to get people to see the […]

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.
