Semi-protected edit request on 17 March 2018[edit]

In the 4th paragraph, beginning "Films were originally recorded onto plastic film through a photochemical process ..."

This link is inaccurate. The photochemistry article deals with the production of light by chemical means. If the sentence remains unchanged, the reference should be to this article which deals with the recording of images by means of a chemical reaction.

Alternately rewrite the sentence thus Films (motion pictures) were originally recorded on cellulose film (link to ) ... 2601:644:8101:903C:68DB:2F05:948C:F304 (talk) 15:48, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 26 August 2018[edit]

Remove: Some have criticized the film industry's glorification of violence,[2] and have perceived in it the prevalence of a negative attitude toward women.[3][4]

This is not relevant to the introduction, it should go in the criticism section. Also the film industry being referred to is hollywood, whereas hollywood only comes into the film industry after several decades. There are hundreds of film industries. This comment is entirely US centric. Red1200 (talk) 04:38, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
