    You might hear "Anyone watch..?" in (very) casual conversation but it should be "Did anyone watch...?
    You would not need "this" before the name of the movie.

    I agree that "this" appears to be wrong (and, of course, in grammatical English, you need "did" at the beginning), but I think the second "watch" is natural. It is an unusual thing to ask and, being unusual, I think the speaker would make it clearer by saying "but not watch". If the sentence began with "did" then it could be "but didn't watch".
