If you’ve ever been confused about the character relationships within Marvel’s X-Men comics timeline, you may now have some much needed help.
To help promote his comic book shop, UK-based graphic designer Joe Stone has created an X-Men Family Tree to help navigate who’s related to who, who’s romantically linked to each other, and sets of prominent arch-nemesis.

I have at least a decade of dedicated X-Men comic book story reading under my belt and even I didn’t recognize all the character ties, which is why Stone probably added the text at the bottom that reads, “Confused? Read more comics.”
After recording the Christmas Movies episode of Flix of Doom earlier this month, I found out that my mother’s favorite Christmas movie is Bad Santa. Yes, the movie starring Billy Bob Thornton.
Am I little bit disturbed by this? Sure, but hey, plenty of people have told me it’s a cool movie, so I guess I’d better get around to checking it out soon.
Apparently, Mama’s not the only fan of Bad Santa. The folks over at LocateTV have created a fun Christmas-themed infographic called “Bad Santa” which has some behind-the-scenes trivia of on some of the most popular Christmas films, including Bad Santa, It’s A Wonderful Life, Elf, and more.

Christopher Nolan‘s Inception is still going strong at the box office, coming in on top for the second week since it was released on July 16, 2010, making over $232 million worldwide.
Since its release, Inception has been praised by most and will probably be the most talked about movie of the year, thanks to its multiple layers and intricate plot lines. On the Inception episode of our movie podcast Flix of Doom, we spent nearly two hours analyzing the film, and other sites as well have spent hours discussing the film and writing up in depth articles on just what in the hell is going on in this movie.
What better way to explain what’s happening in Inception than with an infographic or two? Two such charts are circulating online, which you can view here below. SPOILERS, of course, if you haven’t seen the film. The first chart seeks to illustrate the ‘kicks’ from the film. The second is a chart explaining the 5 Levels from the film, along with the kicks.
What do you think of these infographics? Do they do the trick in explaining this movie? Did they get it right?
