Introduction to Filmsite
Films, also known as movies, motion pictures, flicks, the pictures, and the cinema, are undoubtedly the most influential art form of the 20th
century. From the early days of Hollywood to the high-tech cinema of today, the silver screen has projected our dreams and fantasies,
presented both glamour and works of social conscience, and served as our collective memory. Following is just a small sampling of the extensive
information available on www.Filmsite.org:
Greatest Films Lists - The Best
The English-language films chosen here repeatedly appear on all-time best film lists - arguably, there is reasonable consensus by most film
historians, critics and reviewers that they are among cinema's most critically-acclaimed, significant "must-see" films (of predominantly
Hollywood-American output, although there are other English-language films included).
"Greatest Films" Lists
100 Greatest Films, are film selections that have undoubtedly left an indelible mark upon our lives and reflect the defining moments of the last
100 years - films that give us pieces of time we can never forget. Detailed analysis and synopses for each of the Greatest Films include
memorable movie quotes and lines of dialogue, and great moments or scenes. Another 100 Greatest Films supplements the original list because it
was almost impossible to be limited to only 100 Greatest Films. Third 100 Greatest Films adds an additional selection of 100 more films, to make a total of 300 Greatest Films for consideration.
Film genres are various forms or identifiable types, categories, classifications or groups of films that are recurring and have similar, familiar or instantly-recognizable patterns, syntax, film techniques or conventions - that include one or more of the following: settings (and props), content and subject matter, themes, period, plot, central narrative events, motifs, styles, structures, situations, recurring icons (e.g., six-guns and
ten-gallon hats in Westerns), stock characters (or characterizations), and stars. Many films straddle several film genres.
Film History and Film Milestones
At www.Filmsite.org you can select one of the chapters (by decade) for movie history, or select an individual year. If you're interested in the

Greatest Film Scenes & Moments:
In the history of cinema, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of fabled, Memorable Moments and Scenes from a wide range of films
(composed of either a few seconds long, a short sequence, or a long extended scene). They are our memories of segments of films that have
achieved a life of their own. They compel us to remember and 'relive' the moment, either with fondness or with fear. For fun, take a Greatest
Moments and Film Scenes Mini-Quiz - how many can you recognize? On the flip-side, see The Most Controversial Films (and Scenes) of All-Time.
Watching a film's moving image, other than just for pure entertainment's sake, is usually enhanced by viewing it with an informed awareness of
how a film works, and with some understanding, skill and background training in the elements of the craft of film-making. Each film viewer or
movie-goer should strive to be a 'critic' (in the best and most general sense of the word) and be receptive to the full experience. Viewing a film
critically and attentively means to realize cinema with greater thought and awareness, and to elevate one's celluloid experience. It also means
possessing an informed knowledge of the film's complex and dense 'language,' its conventions, codes, symbols, cinematic attributes, and other
