If you’re not aware of this yet, you might want to know that YouTube is much more than cute kittens and pop music videos. The service has been renting full length movies for a long time. But did you know that you can watch some full-length movies on YouTube for free?

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit that you won’t find many (any?) Academy Award winners on this list, but I still expect that most people will be find at least a few titles that might pique their interest. For example, “Talladega Nights” and “Year One” have some big stars. And “21” was a pretty engaging drama. If your tastes run more toward the classics, you can watch Douglas Fairbanks in “Robin Hood” or the cult favorite, “Reefer Madness“. And the animation offerings run from “Popeye” to “Sita Sings the Blues“.

In all, you’ll find thousands of free movies available on YouTube. So the next time you’re stuck in some waiting room for an hour and a half, just fire up your smart phone or tablet or notebook computer, and you can kill some time with a free film.
