The Movie Timeline

from Yahoo!Picks:

The Movie Timeline
School kids since 1067 have been bored by the knowledge that the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066. 1215, Magna Carta; 1588, Spanish Armada defeated—snooze. But let's just say for a moment that every historical event, even if it's fictitious, is real, provided it has been depicted or referred to in a movie. Hey, now you're talkin'! Pay attention, kids, these may be on the final:
2897 BC: Predators arrive on Earth to feast on humans (as depicted in "Alien vs. Predator").
932 AD: King Arthur and knights search for Holy Grail ("Monty Python & The Holy Grail").
1933: Giant ape ravages New York City ("King Kong").
1996: Genetic superman Khan leaves Earth ("Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan").
2022: Soylent Green is people! ("Soylent Green")
40,000 Barbarella roams galaxy in skimpy outfit ("Barbarella"). Study groups now forming at the concession stand. (in Movies & Film)
