Five favorite don’t-go-in-the-water movies


Posted by on

Put on your water wings, grab a floatie, and take some deep breaths, because we’re showing “Open Water” tonight at 8/7c. If there is one movie to put a crimp in your super fun vacation plans to go snorkeling, it’s this tale of happy-go-lucky vacationers accidentally abandoned in shark-infested water. Susan (Blanchard Ryan) and Daniel (Daniel Travis) are a busy married couple who head out for a relaxing island vacation and some quality time together. They sign up for some scuba diving and head out to sea with a group of other divers aboard a rented boat. Since they are certified to dive in open waters, the couple breaks off from the group to go exploring. Then the ship screws up the head count and leaves the couple stranded in shark-infested waters 15 miles from land. What follows isn’t pretty, but is pretty intense. The worst part about the movie is that it’s based on a true story. Are you a certified landlubber now? If not, here are five of our favorite scary water movies:

1. “Jaws”
You know it, you love it, let’s all sing the “Jaws” theme.

2. “Open Water”
A fun snorkeling excursion turns significantly less fun when the boat leaves you miles from anywhere in open water.

3. “Lake Placid”
Man-eating crocodiles can definitely ruin your vacation plans.

4. “Rogue”
A group of tourists in Australia fall prey to a giant, man-eating crocodile.

5. “The Deep”
Vacationers (Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset) get involved in a dangerous conflict with treasure hunters when they discover a way into a shipwreck buried under Bermuda waters.

“Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus”
Self explanatory

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.
