MOVIES: "Fast and The Furious", "Titanic", "Spiderman", "You Got Served", and "Biker Boyz"
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.
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!

It can't be digital or HD tape, it has to be on FILM
SO, to any pretentious douchebag out there who thinks that they are soooo smart that they MUST use the word film- know that no matter how many times you refer to movies made after 2000, they are more than likely to not be films.
Juno, There Will be Blood, No Country for Old Men, and any other artsy type of movies to come out recently are NOT FILMS, no matter how dramatic or independently made that they are.
