What makes cinema cinematic?

So. It's been that time of year again, the part of the geek calendar when millions of fanboys and fangirls around the world weep and claw at their own faces and scream to the heavens: 'WHEN THE HELL WILL I BE ABLE TO GO TO SDCC? WAAARGH!” This is a war-cry that I am most familiar with, as I am trapped in the body of someone who is yet to rise above the status of 'broke'.
