10 Examples of People Yelling “Noooooooo!” in Movies

burbs-nooo

Posted by on

One thing’s for sure — no matter the genre, no matter the medium, no piece of entertainment is immune to the glories of a character screaming “NOOOOOOOOO!” into the air like they just don’t care. Daughter died? Facing down a tidal wave? Watching the Sun explode? Check out these 10 examples of people letting their “NOOOOOOOs” fly.

10. Evil Dead 2

This 1987 Sam Raimi classic helped put screaming “Noooooo!” on the map. This is how you end a movie, people.


9. A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warrior 

The filmmakers behind Freddy’s third installment knew that when all else fails, having someone scream “Nooooooooo!” will at least fill up space in your movie. Here it’s mute Joey using his “dream voice” to kill Mr. Krueger once and for all. Or does he?


8. Van Helsing

This 2004 bomb finds Hugh Jackman getting early practice for his “no!” screaming ways, only this time in wolf form.


7. Muppets from Space

In one of the many Muppet movies made after the death of creator Jim Henson, Gonzo seems to be speaking for all us when he lets out this emotional howl.


6. The ‘Burbs

Before Tom Hanks became the biggest movie star in the world, he was just a guy who had the comedy chops to make screaming to the heavens hilarious.

5. Pet Cemetery 

The film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel wasn’t a critical hit, but it did wisely use a character screaming “no!” not once, not twice, but three times. Go big or go home, people.


4. X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine 

Sometimes you film a character screaming “no!” in one movie, and love it so much you create a spinoff just so he can do it two more times.


3. Jungle Fever

This 1992 Spike Lee Joint brought the scream to art house cinema. Sometimes you just don’t feel like being propositioned by a prostitute. Or if you’re Wesley Snipes, paying your taxes. NSFW:


2. Death Wish V: The Face of Death

By the time this fifth installment of the Death Wish franchise came out, star Charles Bronson was 72 years old, and had run out of ways to kill people. This is a prime example of that.


1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi 

Sometimes screaming “no” runs in the family. As demonstrated in these two clips, one perhaps the most classic “no” in movie history. The other, not so much. And finally, because Lucas can’t stop tinkering with/screwing up the original franchise, Darth Vader now unleashes his signature “no!” on the recent Return of the Jedi Blu-ray.  Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to look skyward and express our distaste vocally.

Spirit's Up

You Missed It, But Don’t Panic

The 2017 Independent Spirit Awards are over! Done! See you next year!
Moonlight won every award for which it was nominated, The Witch got some well-deserved rookie love, Nick Kroll & John Mulaney were perfect hosts, and Fred Armisen apparently died.

If you missed any of it, don’t freak. It’s 2017, which is the future. The magical immediacy of media technology will save you.

Watch the entire awards show, start to finish, on the IFC app or right here. RIGHT NOW. FOR FREE. Or, you know, whenever, because that’s the whole point.

If you’re still on the fence, don’t get comfortable. Here’s a sampler platter that’ll give you the flavor of everything that went down today. Fair warning: It’s real good.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney

Perfect hosts. Perfect. Their opening routine was deadly funny, wicked smart, and invoked both David Lynch and Werner Herzog. A huge step up from the Academy Awards’ usual fart jokes, figuratively speaking.

Andy Samberg’s Surprise Cameo

We’ll never think of Eddie Vedder the same way again.

Best Supporting Female: Molly Shannon

Superstar! It’s been too easy to think of Molly exclusively in the context of her beloved characters, but her nuanced performance in Other People changes all of that. And man can she work a crowd.

Best Feature: Moonlight

This. Movie. We called it first, Oscar!

See the full list of winners here and enjoy the entire 2017 Spirit Awards now or anytime on IFC.com and the IFC app.

Forget Oscar

Find Your Spirit Animal

The Spirit Awards are LIVE this Saturday at 2p PT/5p ET.

Posted by on

In just a few precious days, the greatest, most epic, most star-studded awards ceremony of the year comes to IFC.

And please, we’re definitely not talking about the Oscars. We’re talking about the Spirit Awards. Hosted by iconic comedy duo Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, it’s a relatively under-the-radar awards show with serious cred. And if the past is any indicator, we’re in for a wild night.

If you feel like doing your homework, you can find a full list of nominees and performance excerpts here. It reads like a who’s who of everyone that matters – those larger-than-life personalities with status that borders on mythological. Our celebrity spirit animals, if you will.

This isn’t hyperbole. Literally everyone who takes the stage at the awards show is spirit animal material. Let’s see if we can help you find yours…

Do you

Live in someone else’s shadow despite shining like the sun? Do you inexplicably vandalize your pretty-boy good looks with a sloppy-joe man bun and a repellent pubic-hair beard? Do you think sounding stoned and sounding thoughtful are kinda the same thing?

Congratulations, your spirit animal is Casey Affleck.

He’s the self-canonized patron saint of anyone who’s got the goods but doesn’t give a damn.

Do you

Have mid-length hair and exude a certain feminine masculinity that is universally appealing? Are you drawn to situations that promise little to nothing in the way of grooming or hygiene as a transparently self-conscious attempt to conceal your radiant inner glow? Does that fail miserably?

Way to go, your spirit animal is Viggo Mortensen.

He’s the yoga teacher of actors, in that what should make him super nasty only increases his curb appeal.

Do you

Get zero recognition for work that everyone knows is unrivaled? Do you inspire greatness in others yet get shortchanged when it comes to your own acclaim? Are you a goddam B-52 bomber in an industry of biplanes?

Bingo, your spirit animal is Annette Bening.

What does it take for this artist to win an Oscar? Honestly now, if her performance in 20th Century Women doesn’t earn her every award on the planet, consider it proof that the Universe truly is a cold dark void absent of reason or compassion.

Do you

Walk into a room full of strangers and walk out with a room full of friends? Have you been hiding under the radar just waiting for the right moment to leap out into the spotlight and stay there FOREVER? Do you possess the almost messianic ability to elevate Shia LaBeouf’s on-screen charisma?

You guessed it (or not), your spirit animal is 100% Sasha Lane.

If you haven’t seen American Honey, then you haven’t heard of her. She came out of the blue with a performance both subtle and powerful, and now she’s going to be in all the movies from this moment on. Or she should be, at any rate.

Don’t see your spirit animal there? Worry not. There are many more nominees to choose from, and you can see them all (yes, including Shia LaBeouf) during the Independent Spirit Awards, this Saturday at 2pm PT/5pm ET only on IFC.

Car Notes

Portlandia Keeps Road Rage In Park

Get a lesson in parking etiquette on a new Portlandia.

Posted by on

It’s the most American form of cause and effect: Park like a monster, receive a passive-aggressive note.

This unofficial rule of the road is critical to keeping the great big wheel of car-related Karma in balance. And naturally, Portlandia’s Kath and Dave have elevated it to an awkward, awkward art form in Car Notes, the Portlandia web series presented by Subaru.
