film

When it's art, you call it a film. When it's mainstream garbage, it's called a movie.



film
They did not call marijuana film in the 70's, they call it that on the show because Leo (the "hippie friend") works at a camera store.
Example:
The guy above me is an idiot. Wanna go see a film?


film
what normal (ie ENGLISH) people call a moving picture. morons (ie AMERICANS) tend to say "movie"
Example:
JESSE- whaddup dawg, did you see that bad ass movie?
CHARLES- no, but i saw a rather smashing film


Film
A word that people who think they are smart use instead of "motion picture," "picture," or "movie."

Not to say that "film" is a bad or stupid word. After all, it's just a word.

But for the most part, people with an air of pretension, in other words people who haven't necessarily earned the right to be a smart douche, tend to use it.

Also, people who refer to motion pictures as "films" tend to insist that everyone else use the term and often times believe that those who say "movie" are idiots.
Example:
Bill- Hey William, wanna go see the new Harry Potter movie?

William- Excuse me, I believe that they are called films, and no, I'd rather not see some mainstream garbage film. I prefer to watch films made by underground directors at my local bijou.

William- There Will be Blood is by far my favorite film. It shows how corrupt that the oil industry has become.

Bill- I see it as more of a movie showing how one man can become so corrupt with power and money. But I see where you are coming from Will.

William- Actually, its WILLIAM, and they're called FILMS, and you wouldn't no the first thing about the art of film. I mean, I am the one that regularly writes film reviews on IMDB

Bill- Doesn't that stand for the Internet MOVIE Database

William- That's not important!
