Sort of.  You can put all your Movies into a recording group called 
"Movies" and set your default Watch Recording screen to show both Titles 
and Recording groups but this will not remove the titles for shows that 
are in the recording group.  It will give you a new title called 
"Movies" that will list all the movies.
