Daniel Craig Is Cooler Than You

Daniel Craig is cool. I mean, just look at the guy. It’s no wonder that he was picked as the latest 007. Who else could walk walk in the footsteps of Timothy Dalton Roger Moore with such suaveness and panache? Not Remington Steele, that’s for sure. Sorry, Pierce Brosnan, but it’s true: Daniel Craig is a much better Bond than you ever were. He carries himself like a troubled spy with a weakness for the ladies and a disregard for rules. He also really knows how to wear a tuxedo.

But Daniel Craig did not rise to the heights of James Bond-ness based solely on his steely good looks, cat-like moves, and icy stare. He put in his chops like everyone else. He was the working-class boytoy of a cougar granny in The Mother and he got stalked (can you blame the girl?) in Enduring Love. He even got to play the love of Angelina Jolie’s fake Indiana Jones life in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, but nobody noticed him because have you seen Angelina Jolie?

In Layer Cake, Daniel Craig finally got his chance to shine. He plays a drug dealer who was hoping to retire but instead finds himself on the bottom rung of a messy climb up the criminal corporate ladder. The film is Matthew Vaughn’s first stint behind the camera and he proves himself to be a talented director with an eye for good pacing, developing plot, and creating memorable characters. He was a producer on Guy Ritchie’s Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and you can see the influence on the now filmmaker.

The trailer explains a lot about the film, although it doesn’t explain the decision to use Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” as the preview soundtrack:

Layer Cake airs on IFC at 10 p.m. ET

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.
