The economy is rough and movies are extremely expensive.. would you save your money and watch a movie online? I'm getting so tired of wasting my money on a movie I hope would be interesting. I decided to watch movies online and I have never realized how much money I spent only on movies. And if I really like the movie, I would go out and buy the DVD.

I have to admit that I do watch quite a few movies online. I do occasionally go to the movies and see movies that way, but I do watch quite a lot of movies simply through the internet. It does save money and time. It does make things easier.

Hello... I agree with you... It is needless to spend money when you can watch it online... Good one! I'll need to buy a laptop, can't watch it on my phone. Your suggestion's valuable. I watch tom n jerry on youtube. Also, a series called three stooges...

While I don't watch very many movies. A majority of what I have watched recently have been online. Though finding full-length movies online is just as difficult because somehow somewhere someone is going to try to make money off of it in some way. I can't tell you how many sites I've come across who claim to have certain movies online, but there is a catch to watching them. A subscription or something of that nature. Quite frankly I'm getting sick of it. When I do find a good movie online, its usually on youtube. And, even that's not a garentee. Due to copyright laws parts of the movie are often altered or the sound is cut out because of some background music that can't easily be edited out. I've tried hulu, and mega video, but not even they have movies I might want to watch. I've used netflix (but I can no longer aford the subscription.) So again I'm right where I started. If you have found a free gimic-free way to view movies (other then youtube) that might be interesting to know.

I usd to be a movie addict, going to the movie theatres atleast three times a week. I like all different minds, comedies, tragedies, musicals, historical, detective, and so on. These days with my job taking most of the time each day, I seldom get to go to the theatres. When I get the chance, I watchmovies on the TV and online. In fact, yes, you are right, it saves a lot of money, and time too.

Hi, AmourHelen, First, lemme congratulate you for reaching the 100 rating. I'm wondering how long before you reached 100 posts. Anyway, movies are indeed very expensive nowadays. However, I still love watching movies on big screen. I consider watching movies in theaters my relaxation thus I don't mind spending. There are times though that due to my busy schedule, I fail to watch a good movie in the theaters. What website can I check to watch movies online? I have to watch the first installment Harry Potter 7 because the other part will be showing soon.

I used to watch movies online- but then I got tired of waiting for it to load, so i just downloaded them. But usually I just wait for the dvd to come it since it's cheaper than movie tickets. I read reviews and comments of people though, before buying a dvd.
