Have you ever thought about the anacralistic term the 'movie' is?
In Victorian days there was the magic lantern show.
Then came moving pictures - silent films that became known as movies.
They were then superceded by the addition of a sound track. These became known as 'talkies'
Why then has the terminology become retrograde?
Should we not be watching talkies still?
