Greatest Films

This site is one of the best and most extensive film resources on the web. Run by Tim Dirks, the centerpiece of the site is the author's lists of the 300 greatest films which include interpretive and detailed plot synopses, review commentary and historical background. The site also provides a comprehensive “Film History by Decade” and a “Film Terms Glossary,” as well as lists of “Box Office Hits and Academy Award Winners,” and “Tips on Viewing Films Critically.” This is an invaluable resource, although users do have to sift through pop-up ads.
