If it's popular, entertaining, full of action, or comic, it's a movie.
If it's serious and artistic or in a foreign language, it's a film.
Its nothing to do with the genre but just the simple fact whether the design is simple entertainer or has depth to it.
An example would be a popcorn horror movie (I know what you did last summer) vs. a psychological horror film (Dark Water).
Any film is a movie and all movies are films (even though now the production of films can be done digitally) ! At this point in history the terms are inter-changeable
Movie evolved from the use of "Moving picture show" - taking place in a theatre or other location.
Film evolved from the material where filmic images are recorded -celluloid..
