 The History of Almost Everything | MetaFilter
I've been in situations here in NYC when one or another event took place and people kept saying that "It was like a movie, just like a movie!", as if real life and movies were hard to separate or an event being 'like a movie' made it more real.
There are lots of movies on The Movie Timeline based on true events, actual historic figures or weaving actual events into the story, such as Joan of Arc, Mary Queen of Scots, Henry VIII, Explorer John Smith, the Seven Years War, the Bastille falling, Gen Lee surrendering to Gen Ulysses S Grant...etc. etc.
The point of the Movie Timeline is that it's history based on the movie version of history, not necessarily all fictional or all fact but history as seen in the movies.

 WorldChanging: Another World Is Here: Science Fiction, Futurism and the Failure of the Will to Imagine
After all, science fiction has been the genre of choice for writers who love to ponder the future, its possibilities and its dangers, ever since Mary Shelley mythologized both the expanding vistas of science and the perils of technological hubris in Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus almost 200 years ago.
Nonetheless, a growing number of science fiction writers and critics contend that works which tackle the future with true originality are becoming something of an endangered species.
And, he says, since SF stories set in the near future (as opposed to the Flash Gordon kind) rely on bursts of dizzying foresight for much of their narrative force, being unable to stay ahead of the curve tends to make authors shy away from writing them.

 Cabinet Magazine Online - The Trouble with Timelines
In fact, the idea of a timeline was still strange enough in the mid-18th century that it required a certain amount of explanation.

 DVD Times - Back To The Future Trilogy Box Set
Back To The Future was a product of the eighties, but it lives on, not because of the wacky visual inventiveness the film possessed in abundance, but because of the values it preaches and its director Robert Zemeckis' belief that the heart of any classic film lies within a brilliant story.
The story tells of Doc Brown, travelling back from his future holiday to the year 2015 to warn Marty that his future marriage to sweetheart Jennifer (Elisabeth Shue) hits a barren patch when their future kids fall on the wrong side of the law.
