The Movie Timeline
History According To The Movies

No, I am not referring to that Paul Walker shitfest, Timeline. This is about our chronological history, both past and future, according to the movies. For example, in 1912:

April 12: Titanic sets sail from Southampton; that night, steerage passenger Jack Dawson meets First Class passenger Rose Dewitt Bukater (Titanic)
April 13: Jack Dawson dines with Rose Dewitt Bukater (Titanic)
April 14: Titanic hits the iceberg (Titanic)
April 15: Time-travelling dwarves appear on the intact Titanic, briefly (Time Bandits)
April 15: Titanic sinks (A Night To Remember, Titanic)

It makes for an interesting read for anyone who is a fan of cinema. It's putting the context of all these different parallel worlds into the context of a shared single world that makes it kind of fun. Imagine, the year Ray Charles started to lose his eyesight, Indiana Jones was chasing the Ark of the Covenant.
