When you "go" somewhere, you yourself are moving from point A to point B because you are the one 'go'-ing aka making the effort to be in a position you aren't already in
When you command or ask someone to 'come' to you, or 'come' with you somewhere, the other person is moving from point A wherever they are to joining you at point B where you are. Your position stays the same, but they join your position, because they are 'coming' with you.
So for example, if you wanted someone wanted you to join them on a night out, they would say, please come with us, meaning, you move from your position to theirs and move along with them at their discretion.
If they say Go with us, it means you move from your point A to their point B, but you are also free to do you're own thing and move to point C, you aren't directly tied to or with them, since you are moving yourself from point A to B to C, just as they are, so you are 'going' with them, two independent paths that happen to follow the same direction.
Also for example in sports, if you are playing soccer and you have the ball and you want your teammate to run ahead for a pass, you don't tell him to come, you tell him to go! If your teammate is in your position with the ball, and you want the ball, you would signal him to come to you, not go to you. See the difference?
It's very minor and exchangeable, it really doesn't matter which one you use, but there is a slight difference.
>>16850983 Come definition, to approach or move toward a particular person or place.
Examples: Come here. Don't come any closer! As in don't approach me.
"Come" could mean that they are moving to a location with intention of being there.
"Come here" can be looked as they want you to move from your location to their loacation, to be near them. That is their intention to have them be near you. Or if they are standing next to you and tell you come here. it could mean to follow them.
Come with us. Is similar to the statement above. To follow them.
"Anon, go to the movies" Go by yourself to the movies.
"Anon, come to the movies" We are already at the movies or will be going to the movies, join us.
"Anon, go with us to the movies. " We are going to the movies in the future, join us when we go.
"Anon, come with us to the movies" We are going to the movies soon, join us.
Basically all of these are correct and there's just subtle differences you need to pick up by heading people say these sentences. This is generally what people mean by these words but it changes and saying "go with us to the movies right now" isn't really wrong, it just sounds a bit weird to a native speaker.
