I love seeing random* information displayed in new ways, which is why I love these two graphs by Mr. Dalliard on Simulated Realities and Time Travel in movies. Although I think the simulated realities one suffers from him trying to cram in too much information. The idea of placing the movies on a scatter chart with escape from reality Vs. escape from illusion and how old the films are as the axis is in it’s self interesting, but it makes the links in the chart really hard to follow.
The time travel one below doesn’t suffer from this as it’s just thematic yes no questions which is coloured by the type of time travel.

* Please excuse my deviation from the dictionary definition of random to one that has passed into common parlance. I’m am aware that randomness in a data set implies the lack of information.
