Since he’s vacated the Governor’s office, Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to the big screen counting on the same formula that worked for him before he took office to work again now that he’s out. And so far, he’s been pretty hit or miss. And while SABOTAGE doesn’t fall squarely on either side of that “or,” […]
There has been a revolution in filmmaking during the past few years. As technology and filmmaking tools have become more available to the public (which I generally think of as a good thing) there have been a lot more films made each year. The end result, I think, has been a net positive for the […]
Lars von Trier’s films are always a surprise, since you never really know what you’re going to get with the eccentric director. I appreciate what he tries to do and I respect that he likes to do different things and shun the Hollywood way, but it doesn’t always work. NYMPHOMANIAC was very promising and as […]
Of all the movies that made a splash at Comic-Con, I don’t think any of them helped their cause more than MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Sure, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON and BATMAN VS SUPERMAN drew a lot of attention and got a lot of applause, but those movies were going to be huge whether they […]
It was a tough Scarlett Johansson versus a tough Dwayne Johnson at the weekend box office and this time, Johansson emerged as the victor with her film, LUCY (click the link to read our review), taking the top spot. I don’t know if that means audiences had rather see a tough woman on the big […]
300 was a huge hit when it came out in 2007. It extensively used green screen to recreate The Battle of Thermopylae fought in 480 BC. Much of the action focused on the 300 Spartans tasked to fight off an army that numbered over 100,000 Persians. There was much bloodshed and glistening abs to please […]
“Not so very long ago, the great many Americans were asked by their government to take over a vast number of islands in the Pacific Ocean. This is the story behind one incident in that war, one island, one American.” That American is Private Peter Moss (James Edwards, who made his debut the same year […]
“The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Today she will hit 100%.” This is the tagline promoting the new Luc Besson film LUCY starring Scarlet Johannson. I’m no scientist, but from what I understand, that phrase is complete nonsense that has become more of a folklore from urban legend rather than scientific theory. […]
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 […]

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.
