We’re Asking: What’s Your Favorite Terry Gilliam Movie?

We’re Asking: What’s Your Favorite Terry Gilliam Movie?  (photo)

Posted by on

We love Terry Gilliam. From his work as Monty Python’s animator-in-chief to his many and sundry hilarious roles in Monty Python’s Flying Circus (on today from 7:05 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. ET) to “Life of Brian”, there is nothing about this Python we don’t like.

We love Gilliam’s work in front of the camera almost as much as his work behind the camera. Gilliam’s work directing “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” has lead to a very prolific career as a director. One could easily argue that out of all his castmates, he has the most successful post-Python career. His movies have spanned decades, ranging from cult classic “Time Bandits” in 1975 to even more cult (culter?) classic “Brazil” in 1985 to “Twelve Monkeys” in 1995 to the “Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” in 2009 and he has “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” in pre-production. His movies feature strange, fantastical and dystopian worlds populated with unusual characters you probably wouldn’t meet anywhere else.

During his time behind the camera, Gilliam has worked with some of the best and brightest (and clearly the most attractive) actors including Sean Connery, Brad Pitt, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, and Benicio Del Toro. The hardest question when it comes to Terry Gilliam’s body of work is: How do you choose your favorite?

Never ones to shy away from the tough questions, we’re asking: What’s your favorite Terry Gilliam movie? Tell us in the comments.

Here are a few trailers to help you decide:

“Time Bandits”:


“The Adventures of Baron Munchausen”:

“Fisher King”:

“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”:

“12 Monkeys”:

How will you ever choose?

Monty Python’s Flying Circus airs today from 7:05 p.m. to 9:30 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.
