Question about English (US)

When I asked a native speaker about the present perfect, he told me that
"I've seen the movie" conveys the nuance that he can remember ther content and talk about it.
However "I saw the movie" conveys the nuance he remember he saw it but he can't recall the content.

What do you think of this?
