I’m busy waiting for Inception this week but to pass the time I’ve found my new favourite website:
This isn’t a puff-piece. I’ve known about this UK based website for a few months thanks to an advert in Sight and Sound but it was only on Wednesday 7th July that I actually looked at it in depth. I’m glad I did.
This is a well made, well stocked movie website and I’ve already spent a fair few hours watching films. It was advertised in Sight and Sound so it must be high quality.
Let me give you the highlights:
- legitimate free movies from many genres from sci-fi to family to thriller and animation;
- a plethora of films from around the world – from America to France to Japan;
- up to date news, reviews, features and a forum to sound-off in.
The selection of films is excellent. These are titles that Sight and Sound examine in their DVD reviews which might catch my interest but not get purchased or left on a ever-expanding, never-decreasing ‘to-get’ list. Let me give you a selection of films that caught my eye:
- Sally Potter’s Rage
- I Served the King of England
- The Dream Life of Angels
- Funny Ha Ha
- Distant Voices Still Lives
- King of New York
- Rembrandt’s J’accuse
They even have a J-Horror season(!!!) which includes:
Ju-On Black/White Ghost, Tokyo Gore Police, Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
It sounds too good to be true. As far as I can tell there is no charge and there are no surveys. You don’t have to sign up to watch the films either. There are adverts but the quality of the films are excellent and these films are the real deal so the makers must be seeing money back which is always a good thing.
I’ve already watched most of this week’s J-horror and intend to watch more so I must dash!
I highly recommend this website!
