100 Great, Free Movies Online

Two weeks ago, we pre­sent­ed a list of 35 sites where you can watch free movies online. Now, we’ve tak­en the next step and added 100 high-qual­i­ty films to our list. Some films are con­tem­po­rary, but many are clas­sics cre­at­ed by leg­endary direc­tors, actors & actress­es. And they’re fre­quent­ly made avail­able by the great Inter­net Archive. (Note: you can usu­al­ly stream or down­load their films. It’s your choice.) Below I have list­ed 15 films, but you can find the com­plete list here. Final­ly, if you want to for­ward a short link to friends, here’s one that you can use: http://bit.ly/freeonlinemovies
