I'm a big fan of infographics, which have taken off in recent years thanks to the democratizing effects of the Internet and Photoshop. I especially love it when infographics are used in nontraditional ways, which is exactly what Paul Copperwaite's Movie Charts, the book that showed up on my desk this morning, does. With over one hundred sometimes easy-to-get, sometimes more eclectic references to popular movies, this is a nice coffee table book that your friends will laugh at as they look through it. I scanned in some of my favorites below:

For those that need a little brush-up on the below (or want to re-live the magic), here's a link to the famous speech.
