A person that is so enthusiastic about films and film and general it should be against the law, as is the case with pedophiles.

A Cinephile is never ceases to talk about how fantastic (or not) the most recent film they saw was, and how what's happening to them right now is just like the scene from a specific movie you've probably never seen, but they insist is a classic.
They also quote movie quotes and do character impressions ALOT.
Most Notable Example - The Lonely Island: (rapping about being a boss in the club)
Michael Bolton: This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow! A pirate so brave, on the seven seas!

Student: I can't beleive how much homework I have to do, this is crazy!
Cinephile: Crazy? No. THIS IS SPARTA!!!
Student: Shut the fuck up.

Wife: It's 4 in the morning! Where were you all night!? And why do you smell like lube and cheap cologne?! I want the truth!
Cinephile Husband: You can't handle the truth!
Wife: I want a divorce.
