More great stuff keeps coming out about the film. As I type this, I am listening to an in-depth AV talk podcast discussing the movie. Last night, I posted the musical cue explanation that came out yesterday. And now, this: a great graphic visually detailing the timeline of the movie. Click image for a larger version.

More of the creator’s work can be found here, including a Pulp Fiction timeline.

Movies: The Trilogy Meter by Barbecue Bros

High Def Digest‘s new blog The Bonus View had a good post today on 10 Awesome Movie Infographics. Here’s one of them from illustrator Dan Meth (lots of good stuff on his site, btw) that I found to be pretty good.

I think #3 for Star Wars should be a little bit lower, all three Lord of the Rings should be higher, and Spiderman should all be lower. I tend to agree with The Matrix and The Godfather. As much of a fanboy as I am, I would probably agree with the Planet of the Apes graph, though its been a while since I’ve seen the other two (four, really).

Feel free to weigh in on what he got right or wrong.

Esquire’s Primetime TV in the Year 2010 Venndiagram by Barbecue Bros

Pretty awesome venndiagram. Though it does seem a bit random (“Meerkat Manor,” and “Wife Swap”?), it uses shows not technically in primetime (“Sandra Lee’s Money Saving Meals” and “Giada at Home”), and it references shows no longer on tv (“The Sopranos” ended in 2007). Still, can’t knock the hustle.
