This week Bullet in the Face is hitting our air with a vengeance. To celebrate the new series from Alan Spencer we’re showing some of our favorite action-packed movies, including “Fight Club” and “Rambo,” in a special series called Bullet Vision. Watch for those movies each night during prime time. But don’t tune in only after 8 p.m. ET, we have lots of other awesome movies to watch this week too.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Do you hate Mondays? If so, it’s because you’re not watching “Cop Land” when it airs tonight at 9:45 p.m. ET. The film is a who’s who of actors who have brilliantly played cops, including Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Ray Liotta and Michael Rapaport. With a cast that good you know the film will make for a compelling Monday night. Come on, do Monday right.

Tuesday

Pencil this into your Filofax: Tuesday at 12:45 p.m. ET, you are having a fight with Tony Jaa. Don’t worry, you don’t have to meet him behind the bleachers or anything. Just show up to watch “The Protector” and make your sad little Cup O’Soup on the couch into a seriously kick ass affair.

Wednesday

Jessica Alba will be on our airways at 2:45 p.m. ET. What else do you need to know? Oh fine: We’re showing the ultra-creepy thriller “The Eye” and Jessica Alba stars as a concert violinist who receives a double corneal transplant only to star seeing frightening images of a world that only she can see.

Thursday

Bullet in the Face premieres tonight! The brutally funny and viciously hilarious mini-series kicks off in a hail of gunfire tonight at 10/9c. The show stars Max Williams as Gunther Vogler a sociopath criminal-turned-cop caught in a war between crime lords Eddie Izzard and Eric Roberts. It’s going to be your new favorite show so you’ll be thrilled to know that we’re airing new episodes back-to-back in a two-night event.

Friday

Our Bullet in the Face two-night event continues tonight at 10/9c. We’re showing three back-to-back chapters in the ongoing struggle between rival crime lords Eddie Izzard’s Tannhauser and Eric Roberts Racken and Gunter Vogler, the undercover criminal-turned-cop stuck in the middle.

Saturday

We’re showing Bullet in the Face all over again beginning at 6:15 p.m. ET. In between the episodes of the viciously funny crime drama, we’re showing Quentin Tarantino’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.” Desperado brothers (George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino) kidnap a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his kids, commandeer their RV and wind up in a Mexican strip joint where vampires lurk. It starts at 7:45 p.m. ET. You’re going to want to make yourself comfortable on the couch, because you’re not going anywhere.

Sunday

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
