What to watch on IFC: “Fight Club”


Posted by on

Even though the first rule of Fight Club is not to talk about Fight Club, and the second rule of fight club is don’t talk about fight club, we can’t help but tell the world that we’re showing it on Sunday at 8/7c. We didn’t really want to be in a fight club anyway, but we do want to watch on though. Yeah, yeah, we like to watch …movies.

This darkly comic drama is based on Chuck Palahniuk’s book of the same name. It stars Edward Norton as a depressed young man who has become a small cog in the world of big business. He’s so inconsequential that he stays unnamed throughout the film and in the credit he’s only listed as “Narrator.” He doesn’t like his work and tries to drown his sorrows in duvets and accent pieces in his perfect apartment. He can’t sleep, he feels alienated, he even visits support groups for patients with terminal diseases so that he’ll have someone to talk to. He’s bored, he’s boring.

Then everything changes when he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a charming nut who sells handmade soap. Tyler doesn’t believe in duvets and potpourri, he believes in pain, misfortune, and chaos. Then he challenges his new friend to a fight. It’s the start of a beautiful friendship. Our Narrator finds that bare-knuckle brawling makes him feel more alive than he has in years, and soon the two become friends and roommates, and founding members of a “fight club.” It’s an underground sensation, even though it’s a closely guarded secret among the participants. But as our Narrator and Tyler bond through violence, a strange situation becomes more complicated when Tyler becomes involved with Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), whom our Narrator became infatuated with when they were both crashing the support-group circuit. If you haven’t seen it, correct that egregious error on Sunday. If you have seen it, well you know you’re going to want to watch it. Especially because it’s a movie so nice we’re showing it twice, so if you miss it at 8, tune in at 11 p.m. ET. Or watch them both, back-to-back, we won’t judge.

Watch the trailer and then tune in:

“Fight Club” airs on IFC on Sunday, May. 6 at 8:00 PM ET and at 11:00 PM ET; Tuesday, May. 22 at 8:00 PM ET and 11:00 PM ET; Sunday, May. 27 at 1:15 AM ET; Friday, Jun. 1 at 1:30 AM ET; Friday, Jun. 1 at 8:00 PM ET; Saturday, Jun. 2 at 1:15 AM ET


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
