Filmsite - also known as Greatest Films (http://www.filmsite.org/ and www.greatestfilms.org/) is a unique website containing lengthy, interpretive, and descriptive review commentary and background history on hundreds of the best Hollywood and American classic films in the last century. It initiated the recent trend to select 100 Landmark Movies in the history of American/Hollywood cinema that are the milestones of our cinematic past, and the site has been recognized by Wikipedia as "an introduction to cinema literacy." The site was established by Senior Editor and Film Historian-Critic Tim Dirks in 1996 and continues to be managed and edited by him.

The site includes comprehensive reference material including film reviews, Academy Awards history, film genres, film terms, film history by decade, trivia, and lots of information on the 'best' films, stars, scenes/moments, quotes, posters, and much more.
