Hi Mihael,
That's a good question - thanks for asking! In the UK we usually say 'film' and in the US they usually say 'movie' - there's no difference in the meaning of the word. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I have a problem with pronouncing the /l/ sound when it doesn't stand at the first of the word, I mean I cannot pronounce the word 'film' correctly like the girls on the recording does. WHen I pronounce, it is similar to /fim/ instead of /film/. Do you have any advice for me?

Hi elleryqueen! The /lm/ sound in 'film' is an example of a consonant cluster - a group of consonants without a vowel sound in between. They can be tricky if your language doesn't have the same sound. It's great that you have noticed this sound though. The more you listen and practise the better you'll be at producing it. Also, native speakers vary quite a lot in the way they pronounce this word, so don't worry too much if the way you say it is a bit different. With an Irish accent, for example, it sounds like 'fillum', so they add in a vowel sound. If you speak as confidently and clearly as you can I'm sure people will understand you perfectly. Good luck and keep up the good work! Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens Coordinator

Yeah, I love cinemas. But I mostly don't head for theatres, 'cause I'm a bit busy. I have weekend classes and mostly those are the only days I could watch my fav movies and cartoons. Usually new episodes air during the weekend, and I surely don't want to miss them!
I usually prefer fantasy films. Action films are good, but they air at night, and I don't think I'll waste a good weekend night's sleep for horror movies! Action movies are a lot better. And as for romance, well, I don't like that genre much. I like Jackie Chan movies, and of course, I'm mad on Harry Potter movies. And Disney too. They're unbeatable.

I like horror movies although I'm so scared of ghosts, zombies.
I also like romantic love story and comedy.
The last film I watched at cinema was a comedy, action Chinese movies, it called ''Tay Du Ky- Moi tinh ngoai truyen 2'' in Vietnamese. Sorry because I dont know how to write it in English. I watched it in my Tet holiday with my beloved friend.
