For questions about cinema or film, including terminology, role, related concepts, and dialogue analysis.

Use this tag to ask about or discuss cinema. Posts could include questions about cinema's role in the development and globalization of the English language, about specific terminology for cinema-related concepts.

Questions asking 'what is this person saying?' are discouraged, as are as superficial questions about whether some line of dialogue is grammatical or not- remember, the English used in spoken form isn't always the same as what's technically right on paper.

Insightful questions about dialogue that offer sufficient context are allowed. For example, such questions might include queries about dialects or accents that you've heard or seen in films, or perhaps about certain phrases or constructions from a period film. If your question is about a specific film, remember to give the name's film, link it, and offer a timestamp if possible.
