The Five Most Bad Ass Quentin Tarantino Characters

Posted by on

Tonight at 10 p.m. ET we are showing Quentin Tarantino’s cinematic tour de force, “Pulp Fiction”. The movie not only put Tarantino on the map as a writer and director to be reckoned with, but also marked the come backs of both John Travolta and Bruce Willis and reminded the world of the charms of Uma Thurman, Eric Stoltz, and Samuel L. Jackson. Jackson’s character, Jules Winfield, has become one of the most recognizable bad asses on the silver screen. In fact, Tarantino has a history of putting some scary mofos in his movies, so we decided to rate them.

Here are the five most bad ass Quentin Tarantino characters. Care to argue? Head to the comments:

5. Mr. White, “Reservoir Dogs”

Played by Harvey Keitel, Mr. White is almost as scary as Harvey himself.

4. Jules Winfield, “Pulp Fiction”

Played by Samuel L. Jackson, Jules is a force of nature and the hand of god. His ability to recite Bible verses on command is matched only by his foot massage skills.

3. Aldo Raines, “Inglorious Basterds”

Played by Brad Pitt, Aldo Raines marched in to a theater full of Nazis with bombs strapped to his men. Also, he collects scalps.

2. Vic Vega, “Reservoir Dogs”

Played by Michael Madsen, Vic Vega is stone cold scary. Don’t argue, it’s true.

1. Beatrice a.k.a. The Bride, “Kill Bill, Vol. 1 and 2”

Played by Uma Thurman, Beatrice pops out of a coma to defend herself, punches her way out of a coffin, goes headlong in to a club filled with deadly assassins to take down a killer, then she kills a man with just her five fingers. What have you done lately? Probably nothing.

“Pulp Fiction” airs on IFC at 10:15 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.
