10 Movie Trilogies You Seriously Need To Watch

Three is the magic number, and that goes for movies as well. Here are 10 trilogies that are must-views for any cinephile.

10. The God of Gamblers Trilogy

Chow Yun-Fat stars as a world-famous gambler who has near-supernatural luck in this triad of Hong Kong classics.


9. The Man With No Name Trilogy

Clint Eastwood teamed with Sergio Leone for three Italian westerns that are some of the genre’s high points – A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.


8. The Dead Trilogy

George Romero’s three original Dead films laid the groundwork for everything that we know and love about the zombie apocalypse.


7. The Mick Travis Trilogy

Malcolm McDowell made his film debut in if…, and returned to the character of Mick Travis in two more exceptional films.


6. The Vengeance Trilogy

Park Chan-Wook’s brilliantly violent dive into the dark side of South Korean culture aren’t connected by characters or narrative, but by the director’s incredible eye for action and emotion.

4. The Original Star Wars Trilogy

Sure, Return of the Jedi isn’t as strong as the other two, but Lucas basically laid the groundwork for the cinematic trilogy.


5. The Dark Knight Trilogy

Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise may seem overlong in points, but he took superhero movies into the 21st century and other heroes are still catching up.


3. The Evil Dead Trilogy

Sam Raimi made his bones telling the unlikely tales of Ash Williams, a poor schlub facing down a horde of zombies, demons and other nasty scum with a boomstick and a chainsaw.


2. The Back To The Future Trilogy

Each of the three flicks in the 80s time-hopping series has its own identity and brings fun stuff to the table, making them still watchable in the 21st century.


1. Three Flavors Cornetto

Edgar Wright’s loosely-connected triptych of genre flicks is connected by references to a British frozen dessert cone – a different flavor for Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
