Fully agree: movies are better than arid, static text. However, plain movies could lead to passive learning.  I would encourage to give special importance on maintaining an active role from part of the student, whenever possible. Interactive animations ( Proteopedia style) help in focusing students attention.

Certainly, Jaime

An idea on how to avoid movies being passive is to set some questions for the students to answer after watching the movie. A great tool using this is TED-Ed (, that lets you create lessons with activities and discussions around a piece of video.
