There are a lot of people who don't understand the differences between the terms, so I will be the one to elaborate. I will use the word "cinemagraph" to describe these to avoid confusion.
A cinèma is typically an older cinemagraph that is very skillfully done, and is loaded with artistic merit. Examples are 2001, Gone with the Wind, and more recently, Interstellar.
Film and movie are used interchangeably, but they are different. A film is a modern cinemagraph that is not as good as a cinèma, but is still worth a good watch. Snowpiercer, Whiplash, and Birdman are examples. A movie is a typical cinemagraph that is mediocre and easily forgettable, like most modern horror cinemagraph.
Lastly, there is the flick. Flicks are what are ruining the industry of cinemagraphs today. They have no artistic merit, have no.effort put into them, but make easy money. These are the endless sequels, remakes, and especially the comic book cinemagraph.
a flick is made for fun and entertainment value, and primarily with money in mind
a movie is something that falls in between a flick and a film. primarily concerned with keeping the audience but also willing to actually have themes, a movie usually involves someone getting wronged and is more often than not a result of some sort of societal construct.
a film is usually more focused on the themes than the narrative and doesn't really care about keeping a sizable audience for the sake of simply having them there, money, etc. films primarily deal with philosophical issues and dilemmas and many will focus on the human condition and how we deal with it.
cinema consists of anything that simply wouldn't work as well in another medium, and is almost always auteur-driven; almost anything that successfully combines ambience and ambiguity falls in this category, but it is certainly not limited to these things. cinema by nature is a very open ended category, there are lots of possible examples with little alike.. the similarities are few, and the universals are even fewer.
“A movie is made for an audience and a film is made for both the audience and the filmmakers. I think that The Game is a movie and I think Fight Club‘s a film. I think that Fight Club is more than the sum of its parts, whereas Panic Room is the sum of its parts. I didn’t look at Panic Room and think: Wow, this is gonna set the world on fire. These are footnote movies, guilty pleasure movies. Thrillers. Woman-trapped-in-a-house movies. They’re not particularly important.” - David Fincher
"My film is not a movie. My film is not about Vietnam. It is Vietnam. It's what it was really like. It was crazy. We were in the jungle, there were too many of us, we had access to too much money, too much equipment, and little by little we went insane." — Francis Ford Coppola
>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film#Terminology_used >By contrast, in the US "movie" is the predominant form. Although the words "film" and "movie" are sometimes used interchangeably, "film" is more often used when considering artistic, theoretical, or technical aspects, as studies in a university class and "movies" more often refers to entertainment or commercial aspects, as where to go for fun on a date. For example, a book titled "How to Read a Film" would be about the aesthetics or theory of film, while "Lets Go to the Movies" would be about the history of entertaining movies.
