Can someone explain to me why 一个电影 isn't necessary here?

not a native speaker but i think 一个电视 would be putting more emphasis than the English would imply on watching specifically one movie

Article is essential in English but in Chinese not necessary, unless you want to emphasize it. "这是一部好电影" = This is a nice movie. :)
