A motion picture; as, I went to see a flick on Friday.
An action made with a chopping or cutting motion that lands with the point.
a form of entertainment that enacts a story by a sequence of images giving the illusion of continuous movement; "they went to a movie every Saturday night"; "the film was shot on location"
a cheesy, lowest-common-denominator entertainment, like Charlie's Angels
In electrical fencing, an action made utilizing a vigorous angular motion to curve the attacking blade, so as to deliver the point d'arret onto the target, thereby avoiding the defense.
a cut-like action that lands with the point, often involving some whip of the foible of the blade to "throw" the point around a block or other obstruction.
The flick is a tactic used in modern fencing. It is used in foil and to a lesser extent, Ã©pÃ©e. It consists of an angulated attack with a whipping motion that requires the defender to make a widened parry, and exploits the flexibility of the blade.
