The final installment of teen dream series, “Twilight,” has director Bill Condon officially on board now for “Breaking Dawn,” which may be a 2-parter itself. Milk it! Or drain it as the case may be.

Best known for his Oscar winning “Gods and Monsters,” and musical, “Dreamgirls,” Condon seems a fine choice to lend some cred to the finale(s) of this colossal money maker. Not that they haven’t been grossly enjoyable to my inner teen ever since I was forced by a coven of women to watch the first one, but, they’re just a tad fluffy.

The current installment, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” due out June 30th, is helmed by David Slade who was responsible for the unsavory castration thriller, “Hard Candy.” He also directed “30 Days of Night” which, aside from all the silly hissing the vampires did, was quite a good time. I’m not at all hopeful for this one though, even with Lord of the Rings composer Howard Shore involved. I fear it’s an excuse to have the same field and stream battles all over gain, just bigger, with more decibels.

They’ve been bringing out the big guns musically – Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Thom Yorke in the last movie, and although reliable soundtrack information isn’t out on this one, the trend is clear. Shored up by Howard’s obvious talents we can at least be certain the misty forests will be well scored. Don’t forget he’s also David Cronenberg’s go-to guy, having scored nearly every single film that genius has made from 1983’s “Videodrome” to 2007’s “Eastern Promises.”

The saga seems like it’s losing it’s diamond sheen in this latest trailer.
Epic battle? Or exsanguinated turd?

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.
