Science Fiction Movie Flow Charts (May Contain Spoilers)

Simulated Reality in Movies

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.

The Rule

I don’t pretend to be as choosy about my film watching choice, I’ll watch almost anything.

Except “Brides Maids” Annabel and I started watching that movie a couple of weeks ago and we had to stop watching it after half an hour because it was so bad. The horrible thing is that in a way Brides Maids fits this rule, the women discuss each other, dresses, food, farting, getting along.

Sure there is talk of men in the film but it’s in the back ground. And yet it’s still an absolutely awful movie. The characters are:

  • The bride to be, whose defining feature is that she is getting married.
  • The main character who is unlucky in life and love and everything. Also she’s jealous that her bestest friend in the whole wide world has other friends.
  • The annoying one who’s only just married.
  • The annoying one who’s married with kids.
  • The one who is a female version of Zach Galifianakis’ character from the Hangover.
The movie had no redeeming features what so ever, which is a shame because it was hyped up to me as being better than The Hangover a movie I didn’t think I’d like but ended up really enjoying.

Hell Driver: The Next Crazy Japanese Movie I Want to Watch

I’m not going to lie to you, I like bat shit crazy Japanese films. From the creators of Tokyo Gore Police, Machine Girl and Robo-Geisha comes the next epic gore fest, Hell Driver A zombie filled gore fuelled Japanese crazy movie thing.

To tell you the truth you probably don’t need to know much about this film apart from the fact this it will be insane, disgusting and that one of the characters has a CHAIN SWORD! That is enough to make me want to watch it, and judging from the comments on the Topless Robot post that I found this on that is all anyone else cares about.

Trailer below.
