New feature: free movies of the week.
I'm going to try to do this every week, just to see if anybody notices just how many movies are available for free on YouTube and comments on the legality of it. I'm not talking bad transfers with subtitles, chopped into 10-minute clips. I'm talking full movies, as crisp and clean as YouTube can make 'em. All this talk of piracy, and nobody's monitoring the biggest video site in the world?
Mind you, I'm not promising that all of these movies will be good. I'm just saying that they're there. I am mystified by this.
Antonio Banderas in The 13th Warrior:
Mel Gibson's Apocalypto:
The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe:
Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery in The Rock!
And just to end things on an up note, Black Hawk Down:
