I'm afraid I apply a somewhat unfashionable distinction between mainstream, popular tat - movies, and intellectual, usually foreign, arthouse - film.

Of course you could say that the term "film" is almost obsolete, most moving pictures being shot onto digial tape or hard drive.

Am I right in assuming that the term movie is a contraction of moving picture?
