This Week On The Buzzfeed Block: Scarface and Escape From Alcatraz

There are good guys and there are bad guys and while we are supposed to root for the good guys, sometimes there are bad guys that you can’t help but love. You know who we’re talking about: Guys like Walter White in Breaking Bad or Dr. Horrible in Doctor Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog. Heck, we were even rooting for The Driver in Drive and not just because he was played by Ryan Gosling and had a super sweet jacket and if we were best friends with him he would totally let us borrow it. There are a lot of so-called villains who are played so masterfully that audiences can’t help but cheer for them. Buzzfeed, the best list curators on the internet, have helpfully compiled a list of 21 Villains We Couldn’t Help But Root For.

On the list? Tony Montana from Scarface and Frank Morris Escape From Alcatraz, which just by absolutely no coincidence at all, are the two movies that make up this week’s Buzzfeed Block, which kicks off on Saturday at 8/7c.

Up first at 8/7c, is Scarface, Brian DePalma’s masterful American tale starring Al Pacino as Tony Montana who rises through the ranks to become the ultimate drug-addled kingpin:

Then at 11:45/10:45c, Clint Eastwood is Frank Morris a convict determined to Escape From Alcatraz. Even The Rock can’t keep Clint in.

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.
