    Continuing comment, memory and retention are not related at all. Think of cramming an academic test, you pass it, but after a relative while, the information is basically gone, although technically not completely because some minute associations remain, but not anything relevant. The preceding is related to memory.

    continuing my comment here:

    On the other hand, retention is based for example on a desired to learn; think of the same test as above, but this time with an interest in it; the test can easily be passed, and associated information absorbed and retained.

    Retention goes in direct proportion to intelligence, which by the way, is another misconceived concept by the typical psychologist.

    @theXIXth It could also be that you have a more emotional connection with the movie you have watched. I imagine that what you remember are the stand-out scenes. I don't know if you know a study by Bahrick Bahrick and Whittinger testing people's recall ability when presented with pictures of their graduating class in a year book?They found that even after 48 years, recognition rates were still around 75% while recall over much shorter lengths of time of non emotive data was MUCH lower.

    One criticism i think is that you can remember things sub consciously as well hence the sensory memory you have:feel, smell, sound etc…
