Infographic: The Death Toll in Breaking Bad

UPDATE, 9/29/13: The final version of this infographic may be found here.

Season 5 of Breaking Bad is now over, and we’re all stuck waiting until next year for the last eight episodes. The wait is going to be excruciating. Fans are left to reflect on the season that was, and re-watch previous seasons. Or, they can bide their time over the next year by checking out this infographic I’ve created that details all of the deaths that have occurred in the series, including the cause of death and the responsible party.

Infographic: Fast Facts About Luis Buñuel

I give a lot of love to a lot of directors here at TDYLF. But there’s one that I don’t feature nearly enough. Luis Buñuel is my second favorite filmmaker, just behind Ingmar Bergman. His most iconic scene, from Un Chien Andalou, is celebrated in my primary header (if playfully, with C3PO’s mug photoshopped in). His early films are a visual feast, and his middle and late-period films are catnip for nerdy intellectuals. He’s sort of the sociologist’s filmmaker, taking every facet of society and social behavior, and stripping it down to nothing in a humorous way. Having said all of that, I realize that not a lot of people are familiar with Buñuel and his films. I’ve put together a quick infographic with some fast facts about the wily Spaniard.

Infographic: The Films that Reference Casablanca (1942)

Thanks to the Blu-ray Elite project, I recently had a chance to re-watch Casablanca (1942), this time on Blu-ray. My first instinct was to write a review about the beloved, critically acclaimed masterpiece, but quickly realized that there’s not much I could say that hasn’t already been said. It’s a shining achievement of cinema and it has earned every last accolade it has received. Early in the film, I started picking up a lot of references. Many, many films have referenced Casablanca in some way or another. In lieu of the review, here’s an infographic that details just how many films thought highly enough of Casablanca to reference it.  Continue reading

Infographic: The Body Count in The Godfather: Part II

The other day, after seeing The Godfather on the big screen, I was motivated enough to create an infographic illustrating all of the deaths in the film. More importantly, I discovered just how head-over-heels I still am about that movie, and that trilogy. Re-watching the sequel seemed like the next natural step in the progression. That’s precisely what I did a few days ago. I’d be remiss if I didn’t put together yet another infographic, demonstrating the colossal number of deaths that occurred in the second film the same way I did for the first. Buckle your seatbelts, because the body count in the sequel was even higher. Obviously, there are a ton of spoilers that follow. Continue reading

Infographic: IMDb By the Numbers

A few days ago, I discovered that IMDb has a really incredible advanced search function. It allows visitors to break films down by rating, genre, dates, keyword, voter scores, the film’s country of origin, and just about anything else you can imagine. If you want to find out how many Japanese movies were released from January 1, 1952 to August 19, 1955, featuring the keyword “shot with a bow and arrow”, it’s right at your fingertips (there’s only one of those, by the way). Using their advanced search function, I’ve fleshed out an infographic about the films that make up the database. Continue reading

Infographic: The Criterion Collection By The Numbers

The Criterion Collection has been providing film aficionados with top-flight content since 1984. Their mission is a noble one–a “commitment to publishing the defining moments of cinema for a wider and wider audience”. Along the way, they’ve restored and made hundreds of films available; adopted Janus Films; and created the Essential Art House and Eclipse Series divisions. They currently list 820 selections on their website (70 are out of print). The list comprises many of the most important films ever made. Here’s an infographic that breaks down the Criterion Collection: Continue reading

Infographic: Movie Funkiness by Percentage of Scenes Featuring Pam Grier

If there was an Academy Award for Foxiest Actress, Pam Grier would have a truckload of them. She was so foxy that she was actually cast as a character named Foxy. They might have re-named the award after her by this point in time. But let’s not forget the other aspect of Pam Grier’s genius–her innate ability to funkify any movie simply by appearing in it. This infographic illustrates just how funky movies can get when she appears: Continue reading
