importing dvd encodes into itunes, places them in Home Movies folder not Movies

Ive always encoded my dvds with handbrake and edited metadata with MetaX.
And theyve all stay in the movies folder in itunes and currently still do.

However I added a few more encodes to the library doing the same procedure and now they all show up in Home Movies section of itunes, even though Movies is selected in MetaX - all the other metadata retains and is the same.
So i edit the metadata in Itunes from Home Movie to Movie and it moves it over, but its not "hard coded" it doesnt stick. i transferred it to my portable and it pops it back into Home Movies.

Is it a metax issue, itunes issue?
anyone else experiencing this?
iTunes has always been horrible at metadata especially for movies, it never hard encodes them to keep them in one general location.

all apps are uptodate (metax, handbrake, itunes, )
