Talk:movie

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

I have got some stupid question: Is this word (movie) popular only in American-English? Because I have got British English Spell Checker and it doesn't accept such word. Is 'movie' unpopular in British English?

Movie is valid in British English (as a loan from American I think), but film is often used instead. Conrad.Irwin 00:27, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
"Film" is the universally recognized term. A few years ago, Wikipedia's editors voted to standardize the labelling of articles about movies, films, or motion pictures and changed them all to use the term "film." It was a good idea. -- WikiPedant 04:07, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
