Screw You, Hitler!

Since I don’t follow a whole lot of white supremacists on there, there’s only one reason why Adolph Hitler would be blowing up my Twitter feed right now: today is April 20, his birthday. To me, there’s no better way to celebrate this awful man’s day than by watching an awful movie about him. The horrors he inflicted on this world were so unbelievably heinous that nothing we could do to him now would repair even a fraction of the damage. But laughing at him in this piece of garbage, one of the worst movies ever made, gives us just a little taste of payback.

Technically, “They Saved Hitler’s Brain” is actually two of the worst movies ever made. I will let BadMovies.org explain:

“In 1963, director David Bradley made a modest, yet confusing, little film called ‘Madmen of Mandoras about the preserved head of Hitler leading a group of South American Nazi refugees in an attempt to take over the world. Several years later, in the early 1970s, American TV stations were desperate to buy any type of movie to fill in the two hour gaps in their schedules. Fitting the definition of “any type of movie,” ‘Madmen of Mandoras’ would have been a candidate, except that it was only 60 minutes long. With typical American ingenuity, ‘Madmen”s distributors hired a bunch of UCLA film students to create 30 minutes of additional footage that they intercut with the original film to make it suitable for TV viewing. ‘Madmen,’ with its large cast of poorly introduced characters, had been confusing enough. The new material, which adds new characters, twists, and incongruous hairstyles, makes things much, much worse. If plot holes were nickels, you could buy a gallon of gas with ‘They Saved Hitler’s Brain.'”

It’s really a terrible, terrible film, and I say this as a guy who’s seen and enjoyed “Birdemic” half a dozen times. For the next nine days, the entire thing is available on Google Videos. After that, you’ll have to find another way to make fun of “Mr. H.” For now, it’s embedded here. Happy 4/20! And, yes, April 20 is also a famous marijuana holiday. Wikipedia has the origin of the whole 420 pot smoking thing, but I like to think that a few decades ago people watching “They Saved Hitler’s Brain” on this day realized the only way to enjoy the movie was to get high while doing so.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
