Infographic: Chronological ‘Kill Bill’ Timeline

Noah Smith - Kill Bill Timeline 1

Quentin Tarantino loves telling stories out of sequence. From his very first film, the director has written and edited his films with some pieces out of order, creating dramatic irony, shock value, heightened drama and more. He also makes the audience engage more with the film as we piece together the hows and whys of questions like when did Mr. Orange meet Mr. White, how does Vincent Vega know Mia Wallace, how did O-Ren gain power, etc. Viewing a Tarantino film multiple times then becomes essential, simply because once you know how things play out, you begin to see the layering he’s created throughout.

Designer Noah Daniel Smith knows this. He appreciates it. But he also appreciates how awesome it can look when you put the scenes in order. Two years after making a chronological timeline of Pulp FictionSmith has now put Kill Bill in chronological order for a new poster. Check out the full Kill Bill Timeline below. Read More »

Stan Lee Cameo

One of the staples of a Marvel movie is the Stan Lee cameo. He’s been in all the MCU movies to date, all five Spider-Mans, both Fantastic Fours, two X-Mens, Hulk, and Daredevil. But he never shows up as the same character twice… or so we thought.

The Stan Lee theory posits that the Marvel legend has secretly been playing the same character all along –namely Uatu, the Watcher. That, of course, would mean that all the Marvel movies take place in the same universe, even the non-MCU ones. Explore this delightfully bizarre Stan Lee Watcher theory with us after the jump.

Cool Stuff: U-Command Wall-E Remote Control Toy

U Command Wall-E Remote Control

More than almost any Disney character in recent memory, everyone wants a Wall-E. He’s cute, he’s got personality, he’s helpful and he cleans up after you. What could be better than that?

Unfortunately, we’ll never own an actual Wall-E because they don’t exist. He’s a figment of the imagination of director Andrew Stanton and hundreds of other talented people at Pixar. There are some cool Wall-E toys though, and fans have even taken it upon themselves to build ultra-realistic versions of the robot.

Disney has now done something right in the middle, releasing a “U-Command” Wall-E, which is remote controlled by an infrared waves. It has all kinds of articulations in the hands, face, voice controls and more. Check out the U-Command Wall-E Remote Control video below. Read More »
