Pelicula

This is the Spanish word for film. This from a comment on the final section of The Time Machine on YouTube.

Limber

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbers_and_caissons_(military)]As artillery pieces developed trunnions and were placed on carriages featuring two wheels and a trail, a limber was devised. This was a simple cart with a pintle. When the piece was to be towed, it was raised over the limber and then lowered, with the pintle fitting into a hole in the trail.[/url]

Pintle

A pintle is a pin or bolt, usually inserted into a gudgeon, which is used as part of a pivot or hinge.

Gudgeon

A gudgeon is a circular fitting, often made of metal, which is affixed to a surface. It allows for the pivoting of another fixture. It is generally used with a pintle, which is a pin which pivots in the hole in the gudgeon. As such, a gudgeon is a simple bearing.

I knew those words. But I posted to have my avatar, the one you paid me to use, in your thread. Kind of like an endorsement.

BTW, it is película (you forgot the accent mark).

Here's a good one for you.........a common idiomatic expression using this word.

Estas de película. (No, it doesn't mean "you are a film" rather it means "you are impossible!") Can be used to describe a complicated, bad, or frustrating person or situation-- "de película" is used as an adjective.

NOW YOU KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!

More precise, película is the name of the film roll itself, but it can be used for the film.

I have no idea why the first URL isn't formatting correctly. There is not a space between the = and the h.

I blame KSensei.
