Flickcharting with The Avengers
So, you’ve just seen The Avengers and you’re ready to go Flickcharting. At the top of the page on Flickchart, you’ll find a search field. Type in “The Avengers” and you’ll see two films. Make sure you pick The Avengers of 2012, because the other is the 1998 oddity that has invalidated arguments for the last 14 years. Here’s what you should see when you select the right film:
Obviously, you can select “Add to My Flickchart” to begin ranking The Avengers. This will pit The Avengers against all the films already on your Flickchart. The advantage is that you won’t have to worry about getting movies you haven’t seen. Manually adding movies also helps ensure that they debut in a place that ought to feel comfortable to you. That’s not all you can do from the movie page, however.
If we take another look, we’ll see plenty of details and links. Suppose you want to see other movies directed by Joss Whedon. Click on his name to open The Best Movies Directed by Joss Whedon chart. The same process works for the main cast (go on; you know you’re curious about The Best Movies Starring ScarJo). Keep going, though, and you’ll see plenty of other chart links. Want to see The Best Movies Based on Comic Books or perhaps The Best ‘Marvel Comics’ Movies? They’re all just a click away.
Once you’ve opened one of these charts, you’ll then have even more choices. You can see how the Flickchart community has ranked the films within that specific filter. You can reverse the sequence and start at the bottom of the barrel by clicking on the “Worst” tab. You can select “You” under Filter By Users to take a look at just your own rankings for that subgroup. You can share them on Google+, Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter; or even begin ranking just those movies, all from the top of the chart page!
The rest of the movie page features several widgets spotlighting content related to the movie at hand on YouTube, Twitter, Amazon and eBay. The statistics column is self-explanatory. You’ll also find Flickchart data such as who has ranked the movie the highest, lowest, or not at all; the most recent and most popular matchup discussions, and there is a section for leaving comments on the film. Go ahead; you know you want to chime in on The Dark Knight vs. The Avengers.
Once you’ve added The Avengers to your Flickchart and poked around the various charts, you may still not have gotten your fill. At the top of the page is the link back here to the blog. Follow that and then run a search for “avengers.” You’ll find every pertinent blog post. There are tags for prominent topics in each post. (To save you some trouble, here’s the tag for The Avengers.)
After all that, of course, you can go back to ranking movies on Flickchart or you can start all over with another search. The possibilities are endless!
