    ....i have watched or watched

    - It's the first 3D movie that I have watched.

    I thought the answer is 'watched'. I don't understand why the correct answer is in the present perfect tense.

    Kindly help me to understand.

    Thank you!

    Re: ....i have watched or watched

    I think this is because the present perfect here refers to life experiences, but I am not a teacher.
