Most of us are not fond of watching online movies like I do but for those who are, this comes as a big surprise. I have come up with my list of the ten (10) most admired websites to watch online movies for free. I’ve visited these sites and some of which I even had memberships with. When I’m not writing, I’m just chilling out in one of these sites to watch movies.
I seldom go to theaters so I’d rather stay home, eat popcorn while lying down my bed watching movies online. It’s pretty cool considering that you’re saving time, effort and cash and the best part is you can watch as many movies as you can. You can even take a journey into time and watch those movies that you’ve grown up watching. The only drawback I think is you may have to wait for some movies to show first in theaters before it becomes available online however there are some sites that shows the current movies several days after its first showing in theaters which was also good.
I’m not advocating that you stop watching movies in theaters, of course, the big screen is still the best. Who would ever want to miss first day of screening or even advanced screenings then brag them to your friends that you’ve watched the movie firsthand and spoiling some parts of the movie to others.
I’ve made this list merely for entertainment reasons, nothing advertorial. Watch at your own discretion. Enjoy the list. If there’s anything I’ve missed or some sites you may want to include, just leave it at the comments section.
Letmewatchthis.com is great source of the latest and not-so-distant-past movies with links to various video sharing sites where you can watch the movies in full or segmented parts. Does not need signing-up for an account to watch movies but is necessary for help requests, suggestions and comments.
Theonlydevice.com has a huge archive of movie titles from different genres and decades. No sign-up required and anyone can leave comments after each movie viewed. Update: No more free movies available for viewing.
Mymovees.com boasts a great collection of movie titles however, it’s very limited to a few selections of mostly newly shown movies and those within the last ten years. Good enough for those who missed some movies shown within the year of which they have many.
Moviesplanet.com is a movie lovers’ social network which allows free movie downloads, watch movies, and be updated on the latest full episodes of your favorite TV shows, and other entertainment related information. Requires signing up to rate films, contact other members or movie fans, and add streaming links. Update: No longer free. No more streaming links!
Watch-movies-online-hollywoodkiller.com is also a great resource of free online movies but may not please some who are shopping for movies to watch since there is no movie categorization where you can select movie titles and genres. Page numbers and tags are the only navigation options within the site and the only way to find movies on this site is through a search form but their huge movie collection is a definite killer. Update: No more streaming links.
Cool-movies.com is also a good source of great movies categorized into different genres with a blog-looking design. Update: No more streaming links.
Quicksilverscreen.com is a resource for movies, TV shows, cartoons, documentaries, live sport, and music videos.
Freemoviescinema.com is a great site for those who are looking for variety. The website features movie selections from different genres with movies as late as the 50s.
Watch-movies-links.net was one of the best online resources with an extensive collection of movie titles. This site is easy to navigate with an organized catalog of genres. Allows viewing of movies without an account but requires registration to leave comments and join the forums.
Capitancinema.com has a great choice of movies including some highly acclaimed indie films. The website though is quite confusing at times to navigate and there’s no movie categorization with links to them however taking the time to search for a good movie will be worth it. Update: Still has streaming links but useless due to many obtrusive ads.
