Flowcharts are generally better when they can be followed.

Tainted1: Battlefield earth was a crime against all sentient beings.

miss diminutive: I'm starting to think I should watch Battlefield Earth just to experience how bad it is. But from what I understand it's less of a "this is so bad that it's funny" movie and more of a "this is so bad I think it gave me cancer" type of thing.

jtown: It's the cancer type of thing. I saw it in the theater knowing full well that it was going to be a horrible piece of shiat but I was unprepared. I didn't just want my money back. I wanted two hours of my life back. I'd been insulted in ways I didn't know existed.

Let's not forget one vital thing: The film can be redeemed with Rifftrax!

God, that chart sucked. io9 sucks too. When is Fark going to stop linking to that blogspamming piece of trash?

When the checks stop clearing.

douchebag/hater: Besides the FC fails with out mentioning King's dislike for Christians

King doesn't hate Christians. Many Christians hold The Stand to be an amazingly Christian novel (for good reason) and The Dark Tower novels are full of references to "The Man Jesus" in a positive way.

King just hates the American Republican version of Christians, who don't follow the teachings of the Man Jesus at all.

Leaving out the Dark Tower series is like trying to show how all biology is connected while leaving out evolution. It only makes any sense if you're special or live in Kansas.

They completely missed a shiatload of mixings in Insomnia. That book ties into not only Dark Tower but just about every other book King has written.

It's really kind of a jumbled mess. I was expecting a more coherent chart.

Oh well.

I'm starting to listen to old King books on audio during my bike ride to work, starting with The Shining. I havent read his early books since I was a kid so I think it should be fun to pick up a lot of the connections that didn't exist when I read them the first time.

If that chart included Dark Tower stuff it would have been about 19 times more complex.
