hi there;

are we talking one photo or bunch of photos? What kind of effect?

microsoft movie maker may be a good solution for this...But you want something pro? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Premiere_Pro

Best regards...

Ok, so you want it to have grain, scratches, etc. or you are looking for more of a frame look. Movie style is pretty vague. If you have an example of could describe what you are looking for in more detail it will be easier to find what you are looking for.

Ok, I get it. You want your photos to have the motion picture (or Hollywood) look.
Here are some articles that have some information. There will be some designed for motion pictures, but some of the ideas still apply:

Of course there is the article you have already pointed out:

 Other Photoshop articles:

 I am not at all sure that you will find a filter or script that will do exactly what you are looking for, but there are tutorials. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to use the tutorials, develop your own style then automate it in Photoshop.
One of the big challenges is the fact that motion pictures are developed with a combination of camera, editing technology, filter technology, lighting, and many other technologies and techniques. Every movie has it's own LOOK, obviously you are going for this. The thing is, however, that there are a LOT of different LOOKS that are in use for motion pictures.
Hopefully this information helps.
