I've been visiting this website:

Movie Screen Shot

It's a weekly quiz that presents 5 movie screenshots and invites you to identify the movie. I never bother playing, but they have a huge archive of previous quizzes with hundreds of stills from every movie you can imagine.

Ah, it's his second post and he's contributing. Let him slide.

That's a good tip Michael but it probably does belong in General Discussion or Off-Topic or someplace else.

Yes, I use them to analyze lighting mainly.

that is cool, michael, but it would be cooler if you could search by movie title....!

i was looking for frame stills the other week for lighting references. we were doing a spot with different looks from different decades in it, and i needed some visual inspiration. also, i knew i wouldn't be able to be at the final telecine, so i sent the refs along with my own stills from the shoot, to the post prod supervisor. it wasn't that easy finding the ones i wanted...

Yes, a search function would be cool. The archive is one huge list though, so you can do a find on that page for a specific title. Not that everything is going to be there, and only 1 quasi-random shot per title.
