10 Trilogies That Shouldn’t Be Trilogies


Posted by on

Stretching one movie into three can be a good idea, but it can also horribly backfire. Here’s our take on flicks that should have stopped at a sequel.

10. Austin Powers

Goldmember took everything that we loved about the Austin Powers movies and drove it into the ground to make an unfunny mess.

9. Cannonball Run

Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run 2 are perfectly good lowbrow comedies, but the third entry – 1989’s Speed Zone – is an embarrassment.

8. The Hangover

The first Hangover movie was a shot out of nowhere that established the “bro-com” as a genre. The third one is completely awful.

7. Spider-Man

Sam Raimi faced studio pressure to include a lot of stuff in the third Tobey Maguire Spidey film and as a result it kind of stinks.

6. Beverly Hills Cop

It’s a testament to Eddie Murphy’s decline as a comedic performer that the third Beverly Hills Cop movie is so much worse than the first two.

5. Cruel Intentions

1999’s Cruel Intentions is one of the most magnificently trashy teen flicks ever, but making it a trilogy just brought the whole enterprise down.

4. The Addams Family

The first two Addams Family movies are perfectly serviceable 90s comedies with some quality bits, but the direct-to-video third one, Addams Family Reunion, is a turd.

3. Back to the Future

Sure, Back To The Future Part III isn’t necessarily a bad movie, but it certainly doesn’t live up to the high standards of the previous two.

2. RoboCop

Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop is an undisputed classic, so it’s a shame that by the third film it’d been dumbed down for an audience of kids.

1. The Matrix

The first Matrix movie completely changed the landscape for action films, so it was painful to see the sequels goof up so spectacularly.

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.
