It’s the week when April showers make way for May flowers a.k.a. rain is swapped for allergens. Stay inside.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Put on your dancing shoes and head to the “Moulin Rouge.” Yep we’re playing Baz Luhrmann’s vibrant musical dramedy at 8/7 c. We’ll be right there with you trying to figure out what gitchy gitchy ya ya hey means.

Tuesday

Get your American history the way it was meant to be learned: Movies. We’re showing “Last of the Mohicans” at 8 and 10 p.m. ET. Go ahead and rip your shirt open while you watch.

Wednesday

The men (Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel) of Charlie Company try to take Guadalcanal Island from the Japanese in World War II. It’s “The Thin Red Line” at 8/7c. You can watch the trailer here or rock out at your desk with this:

Thursday

Nothing gets you ready for the weekend, like prepping for the apocalypse. Load up on MREs and watch Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto” at 10:15 p.m. ET. As the end of the Mayan civilization draws near, a man makes a desperate bid to escape being a human sacrifice and return to his family and the woman he loves.

Friday

“Kingdom of Heaven.” is a boys club. Ridley Scott’s film stars Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, and Edward Norton suit up and wage war in this epic-scale historical drama inspired by the events of the Crusades of the 12th century. Battle starts at 10:45 p.m. ET, don’t be late.

Saturday

A rookie cop (Ethan Hawke) meets a corrupt Los Angeles narcotics officer (Denzel Washington) who wants to include him in his schemes in “Training Day.” It’s a film so nice, we’re showing it twice at 8 and 10:30 p.m. ET.

Sunday

While we know that the first rule of “Fight Club” is that you do not talk about “Fight Club,” we can’t help but tell you that we are showing the film at 8 and 11 p.m. ET. Watch as Brad Pitt and Ed Norton create an underground club where men can compete in hand-to-hand combat a.k.a. beat the crap out of each other for fun.

Rev Up

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.
