I'm trying to find out about the German movie / serial Homonculus, The Wik link in this (Movie serial) article directs me to the general article on "Homunculs," which only has a passing ref like the one here. The German Wik also does not seem to have any-thing on this film, which a German book on SF calls the mother of German black film style. 08:56, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
I have to question the prominent mention of Machinima, as opposed to countless other forms of serials that exist on the internet, and in the indie film scene, today.--184.108.40.206 00:22, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
- There was a fad for it at the time. The talk of "downloading" films dates that paragraph to the mid-2000s, that and the idea that the internet can only support five-minute-films. Nowadays people either say CGI or animation. There was a concerted attempt on Wikipedia to make the word "machinima" a thing, as with e.g. sousveillance. It didn't take off, it obviously wasn't going to take off, and now someone has to get rid of it. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:47, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
The name of this article should be changed from Serial film to Serial (film).
Last Ever Serial?!
A note on grammar
Strictly speaking, the term "serial" is the singular form of the word "series". Exceptions have been made to distinguish the term "serial", being a specific medium in itself, from the term "series" as used in American English to refer to a television show. Although the plural form "serials" can be considered acceptable for this purpose of distinction, it is grammatically incorrect and whenever possible this article should strive to refer to a serial in singular form, so as to maintain distinction while still being grammatically correct. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:33, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
