The Convenient News Network (or CNN,) is the news channel on TV that everybody in movies watches because it always reports on exactly the thing you want to know about. This phrase was coined by Cleolinda Jones who writes the m15m livejournal.
Famous Actor: "Somebody just told me about some vague interesting thing that's important to the plot, I better turn to the Convenient News Network to find out more, because I just know that's what they'll be talking about when I turn on the TV, which, of course, is already on the exact channel I was going to watch anyway."

A movie that is the combination of two or more other movies. (A chimera is a monster from Greek mythology that is a cross breed of a dragon, a lion, a goat, and a serpent.)
The animated film "WALL-E" is just more chimera cinema. If you've seen "SILENT RUNNING", "2001", and "SHORT CIRCUIT", then you've already seen "WALL-E".

A seemingly paradoxical situation that occurs when all of the individual components of a movie (acting, dialogue, editing, etc.) are utterly terrible, yet the movie is nevertheless enjoyable. Most often it applies to a movie that while not meant to be a comedy, is nevertheless hilarious to watch.

Named for 'Springtime for Hitler' from the film 'The Producers'.
