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 Fiction, Smith has now put Kill Bill in chronological order for a new poster. Check out the full Kill Bill Timeline below. Read More »

Disney fan Aish has put together an infographic mapping most of the Disney animated movies in a chronological timeline based on the order of historical setting. The graphic sorts almost 50 films into 47 time periods. Not all of the Disney animation catalog is included, specifically the package films. Aish notes:
Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)
Check out the Disney Animated Movie Timeline in full, after the jump.

For some movie collectors, there’s nothing more sought-after than screen-used movie props. To own something that is literally a piece of a film you love is priceless. Or, as seen in a new infographic, so expensive as to be nearly priceless. A new image ranks “The 33 Most Valuable Movie Props of All Time.” However, I’d argue these are just the most expensive as there are probably props that, if available, would go for more. Still, $6.4 million for one prop? Wow. Plus how much did an original Delorean from Back to the Future or lightsaber from Star Wars sell for? Check out the full image of the most expensive movie props below. Read More »

In real life, a city-destroying disaster is a national tragedy. At the movies, though, it’s just the expected conclusion of any big action movie.

Today, we have a Hollywood disaster map that illustrates just how and where the movies like to hit. Not surprisingly, New York and Los Angeles lead the rest of the country in terms of general destruction.

When we talk about Marvel movies, we’re usually talking about Marvel Studios movies — the ones that tie into The Avengers and are distributed by Disney. But the Marvel Comics stable of characters is actually spread all over Hollywood. Marvel sold off the film rights to various studios in the ’80s, and it wasn’t until the mid-’00s that they began collecting them back to launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As of now, Marvel has regained most, but not all of its properties, and it can be confusing to remember which studio still has which heroes. So The Geek Twins have created a handy infographic laying out exactly which characters live where. Now you’ll know exactly where to direct your angry letter the next time you get to wondering why Namor the Sub-Mariner hasn’t gotten his own feature yet. Hit the jump to check it out.
