    hmm sounds liek you need to shut down your computer give it a minute and open it back up, i have experienced the trash issue before, also if you can backup movies and photos on an external disk and disconnect the disk you can erase all of it off your computer and view and use it on you external disk

    please note if the external disk is not disconnected when you empty the trash you will LOSE the files, so eject and un plug and you will have no issues.
