Sometimes, all you want out of a movie is to see someone you like hunting down and kicking the living hell out of some bastard who’s got it coming. If that’s your bag, then here’s a list of great revenge flicks, in no particular order.

10. Machete

Danny Trejo rappels down a building with a guy’s intestines. That’s something you gotta see.

9. Lucky Number Slevin

A revenge movie disguised as a crime movie… or within a crime movie… or it’s just both. Ben Kingsley and Morgan Freeman are in it as rival crime bosses. You know you want to watch that.

8. Oldboy

Despite the disturbing turn it takes, Dae-su’s quest for vengeance against his mysterious captors is mesmerizing.

7. The Crow

A straightforward superpowered quest for vengeance within a 90s goth’s wet dream is certainly worth Top Dollar.

6. Leon: The Professional

You don’t get a lot of great revenge movies starring 12-year-old girls, but Natalie Portman’s an exception.

5. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Lisbeth Salander’s revenge against her rapist is likely seared into the minds of everyone who’s seen this film.

4. Memento

Christopher Nolan’s unique film unfolds chronologically backwards to simulate the effects of Guy Pearce’s memory condition, as well as to better illustrate the deep psychological need we have for revenge as a concept.

3. Inglorious Basterds

The fiery revenge Shosanna Dreyfus unleashes upon Hitler and the Nazi high command is nothing short of cathartic.

2. The Limey

Steven Soderbergh puts Terence Stamp on the path to hunt down whoever killed his daughter, and the man does not take “no” for an answer.

1. Kill Bill

Be honest – this is the first thing that pops into your head when you think of revenge movies these days, isn’t it?

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.
