    Re: The movie thing

    They are all correct.

    There is no difference in "movie" or "film" although personally I say "movie" far more often.

    I think I'd say I watched a movie it I was home and I went to see a movie if it was in the theater.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
