Movie vs "film" is not a UK vs US thing.

In the UK we definitely call all movies 'films'. Some younger folk might call them movies but in general most of us would call them films. There is no discrimination between the most populist entertainment films and intellectual 'high art' films. They are all called films here.

I didn't realise that in the US these terms could infer different definitions of cinema.

caseydog I’m with you movies bore me. North by Northwest is one of my favorite movies though. In old times film makers had to work harder and be a lot more creative to create interesting movies. All the technology we have today kind of makes things more dull.

Reminds me of the Mark Twain quote about how a cauliflower is nothing more than a cabbage with a college education. :)
