While I’m away, this week’s question comes from Daniel Prinn of Daniel’s Film Reviews.
What do you prefer calling movies?
Most terminology for “movie” is a bit dated now; “Film”, “celluloid”, “flick”, “motion picture”, “silver screen”, and “talkie” all come to mind. Even “movie”, being shorthand for “moving picture” is dated terminology, but these terms have stuck.
Personally, and this should be fairly obvious, I prefer the term “movies” or “films” even though few movies are recorded on actual film, I don’t see the term “digitals” ever taking off. However, even with the dated terminology, I like having the options.
What about you?
