Free & Legal Movies to Watch Online - 420+ Movies Available

Written By Franklin V on Saturday, August 25, 2012 | 10:11 PM

It's time to grab your popcorn and soda! I would like to share some legal sites where you can download Movies and T.V. Shows! For Old and New Hollywood films, film noir, documentaries, and comedy these sites are especially helpful! 



Internet Archive – Feature Films
When you’re looking for free movies online, the Internet Archive should be your first stop. It features large collections of classic comedies, film noir and sci-fi/horror flix. Many films listed above come from the Internet Archive.

Google Video: 
 For some time now, major classics have appeared on Google’s site. You will find many such films above.

http://video.google.com/

Australian Screen Archive: 
The Australian National Film and Sound Archive provides free and worldwide access to over 1,000 film and television titles – a treasure chest of down-under video 100 years in the making.

B Minus Movies: 
 AMC is your new go-to site for B-movies by the likes of John Carpenter (Dark Star) and Roger Corman (Saga of the Viking Women). Want to see international icons before they made it big? Check out Raquel Welch in A Swingin’ Summer or kung-fu king Sonny Chiba in Terror Beneath the Sea. Looking for the unexpected? How about The Ruthless Four, a spaghetti Western starring Klaus Kinski.

Babelgum Films:
 Babelgum’s goal is to act as an international ‘glue’, bringing a huge range of professional and semi-professional films to a global audience – like a modern-day Tower of Babel. They’re also making an effort to get their content to smartphones. They have an iPhone app now and apps for other phones on the horizon. Get more detail on the mobile apps here.

BestOnlineDocumentaries: 
 As one reader previously told us, “This site is a bit out of date and some of the links are broken, but it’s still a great compilation of online documentaries.” For more documentaries, you should also see Snagfilms mentioned below.

http://www.bodocus.com/

Big Five Glories: 
 Presents classic films in the public domain within an attractive user interface. Makes the films a pleasure to watch.

http://www.bigfiveglories.com/

Classic Cinema Online: 
This site nicely pulls together hundreds of classic films, ranging from Action to Westerns and even old cinema shorts and news reels.

ClearBits
This new site provides hosting and distribution for open licensed (Creative Commons) media and datasets. They have a section devoted just to movies, and all their content can be downloaded without cost.

Clicker:
 The Internet Television guide tells you where you can watch free and paid-for movies online.

http://www.clicker.com/movie/

Crackle.com
If you’re looking for more mainstream movies, here you go. This is Sony’s online movie play. Note: there’s probably some geo-blocking that comes with this. Also, one of our readers has also suggested the UK-based Blinkbox, which seems to offer another platform for more mainstream films.

http://www.crackle.com/

Creative Commons:
 
The folks who gave us the Creative Commons license host a wiki where you can find a good number of freely available films. Handy and worth keeping an eye on. I’d also suggest keeping tabs on CC’s Video blog.

http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Film




Documentary Film Network: 
This site has been archiving documentaries for the past 4 years and serving them free of charge. Among the 181 films, you can find some of the Nixon-Frost interviews and a Che Guevara Biography.

http://www.documentary-film.net/search/video-listings.php?e=224

Europa Film Treasures: 
Thanks to Europa Film Treasures, you can spend hours looking back through an archive of European film. Theses films range from “comedy to science fiction, from westerns to animation, from erotic to ethnological movies.” Highly recommended by our readers.

http://www.hulu.com/movies

Jaman: 
Jaman is mainly a pay-per-download site that focuses on indie-style films, but they do host some free movies. Even though they have a page devoted to their free films, it’s actually not that easy to find the freebies. You have to fish around a little.

http://www.jaman.com/movies/free-movies/

 NFB.ca is a web site where you can watch films produced by the National Film Board of Canada. It offers access to 100s of documentaries, animated films and trailers.

PBS Video:
 PBS hosts online a new film based on Michael Pollan’s bestseller, Botany of Desire. Other PBS productions are also housed here.

http://video.pbs.org/

QuickSilverScreen: 
 This site essentially puts torrents online and lets you watch films posted by other users, including many new films. It’s hard to believe that this site is entirely kosher, but it’s very popular (one of the top 3,000 sites on the web) and hardly a closely held secret.

http://www.quicksilverscreen.im/

Sling.com: 
This collection contains some dreck, but also some decent documentaries and classic films. So it gets on the list.

http://www.dishonline.com/big-news
