Can anyone point me to a helpful movie glossary that has a list of movie shots (pan shot, establishment shot, close-up, etc)? Looking for as comprehensive a list as possible with good explanations. Thanks.

Well, there's always the IMDb Film Glossary, although that may be more comprehensive than you're looking for. Google gives plenty of results this, for example.

This might be exactly what you're looking for. Another good google search is cinematography terminology. While this has just the camera shots and what they're good for. Found via Google

There's a big softcover book with a red and black design on the front that they issue to all film students. Unfortunately, I sold mine so that I could afford to eat one day.

There was this cool wiki mentioned over on blue (I think). But I can't find it. :-(
