There's no problem with "watch a movie' because it's correct. We can't see a movie.

I think "see a movie" is acceptable as informal talk.

Hi,

I think there is a slight difference between 'watch' and 'see' to my mind. If you say I'm going to watch a film tonight, this suggests it's something on TV/dvd/video that you are going to watch in your home. If you say I'm going to see a film tonight, this suggests that you are going to the cinema to see the film. 'Watch' somehow seems more 'intimate' to me.
