Trailering: “The FP”

Posted by on

There were a couple of “most discussed” movies at South by Southwest this year. “Attack the Block,” the horror comedy from Edgar Wright’s writing partner Joe Cornish, just because the buzz about the film was so good. “Kumaré,” the audience award winner and potentially controversial hybrid of “Borat”-style prank movie and documentary about a phony spiritual guru who spiritual students make him reevaluate his own cynical beliefs. And “The FP,” from Brandon and Jason Trost, which had a really positive first screening (see this review from Cinematical) and then a fairly disastrous second screening where the filmmakers and their crew heckled their own film (see this report from Movieline or my own piece, complete with video). The vibe at that second screening was so toxic that Jason Trost even tweeted an apology the following morning.

That second screening may have fouled up some of their reviews but it certainly got the word out about the film; after people read my piece, that was all they wanted to talk about. And the third screening, sans special guests, went well again. I dug the beginning and end of the movie enough that I’d be curious to see the movie again under, let’s say, quieter circumstances. And if you’re curious, here is the film’s first trailer via Ain’t It Cool News. There’s some salty language in there, though it’s just the tip of the “FP” iceberg in terms of what’s in the actual movie. At the moment, “The FP” does not have a distributor.

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.
