Twelve Amazing Movie Infographics
We really love infographics, especially smart, savvy ones that pay homage to all my favorite pop culture references and movies. I’ve collected twelve of the coolest movie related infographics on the Web ranging from movie monsters to how to react in case of a Aliens versus Predator scenario. Seriously, don’t you want to be prepared when the alien onslaught begins?!

What about a Rancor versus Godzilla? Fear not, the first infographic comes from GeekStir, a movie-related blog that took on monsters ranging from King Kong to Clover and stacked them up to a size comparison infographic.

Now, who doesn’t love at least one Pixar movie? I bet you would be hard pressed to name a Pixar flick that doesn’t tug at your heartstrings, even just a little bit.
