Contribute to the Movie Timeline!

Okay, history majors, The Movie Timeline may not hold up in a college classroom, but it’s a fun read for folks who consider themselves film fanatics (thanks to Metafilter for the link). The brainchild of comedian and writer Paul Kerensa, it assumes everything that happened on the silver screen is factual, then lays out said events in painstaking chronological order, from Loana’s encounter with dinosaurs (One Million Years B.C.) to the birth of infamous serial killer Hannibal Lecter in 1938 (The Silence of the Lambs) to the extinction of mankind in 4001 (AI). Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go fact-check the date of Ellie Arroway’s first Contact with extraterrestrials, and suggest Mr. Kerensa get it added to his site — stat!

    Wow, life would be alot more interesting if all of that stuff happened.

    I can see this site becoming really interesting, once it gets jazzed up a bit, as he says he is going to do. I’ve already submitted 2 Titanic (1997) corrections.

    The first thing that comes to mind: Does anyone remember the date when Joe Pendleton is really supposed to die in Warren Beatty’s “Heaven Can Wait”?

    Never mind! It was March 20, 2025 at 10:17 a.m.
