Find movie clips!

The free film clip search engine Movieclips allows you to use some very interesting criteria to search its archive, including searching according to mood and character type. As movieclips allows you to view portions of all sorts of commercially released films, it would of course be a good idea to preview whatever you might want to present to students so it will be a swear-word free experience.

Language Lens
Presenting film clips depicting a certain mood or character type (e.g. "exciting" or "athlete"), in addition to other search criteria on the site, would be a great way to target emotional vocabulary, reading nonverbals, and story grammar.
