7 Movie Mysteries That Still Drive Us Crazy


Posted by on

We don’t need everything spelled out for us like children, but some movies really go overboard in denying us closure. Here are seven flicks that left us hanging.

7. Lost in Translation

Bill Murray’s whisper to Scarlett Johansson at the end of their affair in this hipster flick is an enduring mystery, and since the scene was improvised there’s no script to check.

6. Demolition Man

A recurring joke in this Stallone actioner is the “3 Seashells,” which have apparently replaced toilet paper in the future. How do you clean your behind with three seashells?

5. Blade Runner

Is Harrison Ford himself a replicant? The movie doesn’t ever commit either way, and the producer, screenwriter, and director of the flick all have different opinions on the truth.

4. Cast Away

FedEx employee Tom Hanks gets stranded on a desert island with a pile of unopened deliveries in this 2000 flick, and we see what’s inside all of them except the one he delivers at the end!

3. The Dark Knight

The Joker is a figure of chaos, and nothing he says can be trusted. But how did he really get those facial scars?

2. Zodiac

Sure, the real-life Zodiac Killer was never found, but couldn’t David Fincher have pinned the crimes on somebody and sent us home happy?

Catch Zodiac on IFC Friday, Feb 20 at 1:30p.

1. Pulp Fiction

The glowing briefcase is nothing more than a plot device in Pulp Fiction, but a part of our brains really want to know what’s in there.

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.
