From what I can tell, it’s done in partnership with Hulu.But this collection has the advantage of pointing you to some decent films. You can also find another re-packager of Hulu flix over at Korean Film Archive – Assembled with the help of Google, the archive features 98 classic Korean films.
Best Online Documentaries: As one reader previously told us, “This site is a bit out of date and some of the links are broken, but it’s still a great compilation of online documentaries.”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.
Big Five Glories: Presents classic films in the public domain within an attractive user interface. 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.
Crackle.com: If you’re looking for more mainstream movies, here you go. 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. Film Annex: This site has one of the largest selections of online films for you to watch or download.
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. You can find free classic movies and television shows right here.
And you’ll also find at the Film Annex many films from independent filmmakers and directors.
The site gives you the ability to download or stream films to your PC, laptop or i Phone. FMO: Free Movies Online features a large selection of public domain films.
Hulu: Unfortunately Hulu limits its programming to a US audience (a policy that really needs to change), but it’s the 800 pound gorilla in the US, and there are some decent films here. IMDB: This is perhaps a little redundant, but the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) also hosts some free online films (as well as TV shows) on its site.
Includes classics, indies, film noir, documentaries and other films, created by some of our greatest actors, actresses and directors.
The collection is divided into the following categories: Comedy & Drama; Film Noir, Horror & Hitchcock; Westerns (many with John Wayne); Martial Arts Movies; Silent Films; Documentaries, and Animation.
We also have special collections of Oscar Winning Movies and Films by Andrei Tarkovsky and Charlie Chaplin.
