I have a Macbook Air 11" memory: 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 (this may be wrong in English, I have NO idea if that made sense. This is what is says in Norwegian. Please let me know if it's wrong.)

Recently, I've been getting a pop up message from finder saying my memory is almost full.
When I go to the "about this mac" and click on storage, it's completely full and says that I have 18 Gb left of 120, 01 GB ALTHOUGH, when I look at what's taking so much space at the chart, it says I have movies worth 140 GB.. How does that even make sense.. 18 GB left of 120 GB, but I, according to my mac, have 140 GB of movies.. Then, when I right click on "downloads" (which is where I keep my movie-files) it says I have 67 GB of movies. 67 GB vs 140 GB.

Yah.. Thanks, apple... Does anyone know how to fix this? Do I have to reset my entire mac? I have of course emptied out my trash can :P This is not what is hovering the free space on my hard drive.
