I'd like to know which of these two phrases are correct?
Have you watched last night film?
Have you watched last night's film?
Thank you for your help.

I would say : Did you watch the film last night ?

Have you watched last night's film (yet)?
The implication when using the present perfect is, have you watched it yet?

Merci here2you, but I should choose one of the two sentences without making any change ..
I think the answer of notrepere would be of great help ...
Thanks a lot for both of you ...

Let's come back to that 'possesive case' or 'genitive', whatever you call it ... : it is, of course, that of 'time and measure',but I was told is was now merely BrEn and considered pedantic elsewhere and that a compound adjective was preferable ... Is it or isn't it ?
As for 'Have you watched last night's film yet ?, adding 'yet' you obviously mean that it had been recorded ... don't you ? But what of 'Have you read Eliot's Adam Bede ? ", which in BrEn simply means 'have you ? or 'haven't you read that book' ? (without putting any intention of encouraging you to do so in the future ?) (By no means ! )
No hurry to answer ... it's time for bed ... or tomorrow morning will be hard !
