Your sentences are grammatically correct, but they don't mean the same thing.

I saw a movie before I came here that I had never seen.

This means you saw a movie before you came here. If you came to place B from place A, you saw the movie in A. Moreover, it was a movie you had never seen. (You may have seen movies before, and even movies similar to this one, but not this specific one.)

I had never seen such a movie before I came here.

This means you saw the movie after you came here. If you came from place B to place A, you saw the movie in B. Not only had you never seen this movie, but you had never seen any movie quite like it. (The sentence does not say that you had never seen a movie before coming here.)

they don't have the same meaning and those sentences are wrong in english.it should be:
i had been watching a movie before i came here,which i hadn't seen before until then.
i had never seen a movie like that until when just before coming here.
the "i had never seen such a movie..." is mean that you hadn't seen any movie in your life.

  • Not any movie - just the sort indicated by such.
