Filmsite.org is an award-winning, unique resource for classic film buffs and all who are interested in films. Filmsite.org includes interpretive and detailed plot synopses, review commentary, an unparalleled wealth of film reference material, and historical background for hundreds of classic Hollywood/American and other English-language films in the last century.
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 history of film by genre type, visit the section on Film Genres, or by non-genre film category, visit the section on Non-Genre Film Categories. See also the extensive year-by-year Timeline of Influential Milestones and Turning Points in Film History, Film Milestones in Visual and Special Effects (illustrated), and The Most Controversial Films of All-Time (illustrated).
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 factors.

Captionfish displays Captioning for Movies and Trailers
Closed Captioning (CC) and subtitling are both processes of displaying text on a television, video screen, or other visual display to provide additional or interpretive information.
Captioning provides transcription of the audio portion of a film as the audio is spoken. Caption also provides information regarding music being played, non-verbal sounds, and other non-verbal audio.
Captioning can be open or closed. Closed caption indicates that the captions are optional and only available when the viewer selects the option to view captions.
OC - Open Captioned - The movie's text is superimposed over the screen images.
RW - Rear Window® Captioned - A transparent acrylic panel attached to your seat reflects the captions so that they appear superimposed on the screen.
USL - USL Closed Captioned System (CCS)® - The CCS is designed to enhance the hearing impaired cinema patron's movie-going experience. A single infrared emitter broadcasts closed caption text and two channels of audio into an auditorium which can be picked up by either a display that can be flexibly positioned in front of you or special eyewear.
SONY - SONY Access Glasses® - An infrared emitter broadcasts closed caption text into an auditorium which can be picked up by special eyewear.
CV - CaptiView® Closed Captioning - The CaptiView system consists of a small OLED display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theater seat cup holder. The easy-to-read screen is equipped with a high contrast display that comes with a privacy visor so it can be positioned directly in front the movie patron with minimal impact or distraction to neighboring patrons.
ST - Subtitled - Textual versions of the dialogue are displayed in English on the bottom of the screen.
DV - Descriptive Video - Descriptive narration in specially equipped auditoriums is fed via infrared or FM transmitter to a small portable receiver, enabling blind and visually impaired moviegoers to hear the descriptions on headsets from any seat in the theater.
About Captioning for Movies
"Until the passage of the Television Decoder Circuitry Act of 1990, television captioning was performed by a set-top box manufactured by Sanyo Electric and marketed by The National Captioning Institute (NCI). Through discussions with the manufacturer it was established that the appropriate circuitry integrated into the television set would be less expensive than the stand-alone box, and Ronald May, then a Sanyo employee, provided the expert witness testimony on behalf of Sanyo and Gallaudet University in support of the passage of the bill. On January 23, 1991, the Television Decoder Circuitry Act of 1990 was passed by US Congress. This Act gave the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) power to enact rules on the implementation of Closed Captioning. This Act required all analog television receivers with screens of at least 13 inches or greater, either sold or manufactured, to have the ability to display closed captioning by July 1, 1993.
"Also in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed to ensure equal opportunity for persons with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in public accommodations or commercial facilities. Title III of the ADA requires that public facilities, such as hospitals, bars, shopping centers and museums (but not movie theaters), provide access to verbal information on televisions, films or slide shows.
"The Telecommunications Act of 1996 expanded on the Decoder Circuitry Act to place the same requirements on digital television receivers by July 1, 2002. All TV programming distributors in the U.S. are required to provide closed caption for Spanish language video programming as of January 1, 2010.
"A bill, H.R. 3101, the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010, was passed by the United States House of Representatives in July 2010. A similar bill, S. 3304, with the same name was passed by the United States Senate on August 5, 2010, by the House of Representatives on September 28, 2010, and was signed by President Barack Obama on October 8, 2010. The Act requires, in part, for ATSC-decoding set-top box remotes to have a button to turn on or off the closed captioning in the output signal. It also requires broadcasters to provide captioning for television programs redistributed on the Internet.
"On February 20, 2014, the FCC unanimously approved the implementation of quality standards for closed captioning, addressing accuracy, timing, completeness, and placement. This is the first time the FCC has addressed quality issues in captions."
