​Cinema nerds, rejoice! Totally awesome news comes from The Oxford English Dictionary, as it has announced over 100 film terms will be added to its collection, according to ​Indie Wire.


Over 100 might seem like a ridiculous amount before you consider all of the different subgenres that exist today, such as the addition of "mumblecore," adjectives we often use to describe a filmmaker's artistic techniques, for instance "Spielbergian,” and various ratings not previously included, like "XXX."

Many terms you might've simply assumed were already in the OED have been added, such as the classics "Scream queen" to describe an actress known for her roles in horror films, and "Not in Kansas anymore," to communicate a state of unfamiliarity.


Our personal favorite additions have to be "Lynchian" and "Kubrickian," honoring the ways David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick's works are most recognizable. The OED defines "Lynchian" as an adjective to describe works of film or television that are “characteristic, reminiscent, or imitative of the works of David Lynch.” It goes on to explain:


 “Lynch is noted for juxtaposing surreal or sinister elements with mundane, everyday environments, and for using compelling visual images to emphasize a dreamlike quality of mystery or menace.”
