Movies is childish imvho. Film describes what it actually is you're seeing!

Pedantic, moi? grin

Hi bearofnothingness
Thanks for starting this thread, we love all things film/movie/cinema too. This films topic is all about what you lovely Mumsnetters think about your big screen experiences, so we felt it was important to use a term that the majority of you were happy with. Back in the day we started a thread about it all asking for Mumsnettters' thoughts and so Films was born. flowers

What is the creeping Americanism? The word "movies"?
