Okay, young whippersnappers, let's look at something useful for my movie loving, cable-abandoning friends. Some people don't want to get Netflix (hey, it's a free country...perhaps more so for you than the Netflix and Amazon Prime subscribers).
Where are the free movies and shows online?
1. Crackle. www.crackle.com
Crackle boasts that they have over 300 movies. If that is what you crave, go for it. My suggestion, however, is to skip the movie tonight and watch Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld.
Need a Larry Sanders fix? Married with Children? It's there. (Spoiler alert: you've totally dated yourself, if you knew what I was talking about.)
2. YouTube www.youtube.com (Or perhaps a better link would be here.)
When you think movies - do you consider YouTube? Seriously, there's a whole untapped mega-hoard of movies, clips, shows, etc. YouTube has a dedicated channel for full length movies, good and bad (Langoliers, anyone?).
3. Hulu www.hulu.com
The free stuff on Hulu is limited, but worthwhile if you live in the US or Canada. Subscriptions are reasonable, if you're so inclined. If you think you might want to subscribe, you can take a test run with a free week.
Here's the best idea of all for those who want to disengage from cable once and for all: the library is still open, I swear. No lines, peeps.
