Movie / film

I found it interesting that Pete used the word "film" in the quote on this page. As a Brit, I use it all the time, but I was under the impression it's usually "movie" in the US. Are they used interchangeably?

Speaking on behalf of all Americans (since obviously I am qualified to do so), people tend to say film when they are trying to be pretentious. If something is good art, we'd say "film" vs. if something is good entertainment, they say "movie." Of course, this is not always the case, and I believe there is a great deal of regional variation. But thanks for pointing this out! I love this kind of cultural linguistics stuff.--Kabutton (talk) 05:03, 16 September 2016 (PDT)
