Well, the movie industry uses them on their very expensive movie cameras and create multi-million dollar movies with them
2. If I purchased more expensive brands, could I tell a difference in the printed image?
Maybe, maybe not. I would lean towards "maybe not" since you didn't mention the size you are printing. Maybe you would for 8' tall murals.
3. If I purchased less expensive "generic" brand, could I tell a difference in the printed image?
Same above.
4. Any other brand recommendations?
For 35mm, and you are not making a ton of money by selling your images, get anything

I used to think that if I bought B+W filters from Germany, my B&W images would be great. I've now, for some reason, amassed a bunch of filters (same types, yellow or yellow green) and I use them all the time. I have NO idea, zippo, nada, on which one I used. Did I use the $20 B+W filter or the $3 dollar one from the junk bin.

HTH!
