Crackle: The Best Site for Free, Uncut Movies & TV Shows

Free and Easy to Use: Crackle

From All in the Family to the Stooges, Crackle Has It All

Crackle, owned by Sony, is the only free site that will give you top movies and dozens of great television shows from the past and the present.

Seinfeld? Married With Children? Sanford and Son? All in the Family? Crackle’s got ‘em all, plus many more like I Dream of Jeannie, Newsradio, the Three Stooges, Bewitched, Good Times and more.

Speaking of Seinfeld, Jerry's new web show will only be on Crackle. It's called "Comedians in Cars with Coffee". Alec Baldwin and Larry David are among the first guests.

Crackle’s free and uncut films include Stepbrothers with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, Defendor, Donnie Brasco, The International, Quarantine, and Desperado.

Crackle’s horror section is huge and includes all the great franchises and some not so well known like the Pumpkinhead and Urban Legends series. The site even offers special collections. For example the “Psycho Bitch” section has 16 cinematic delights including La Femme Nikita, Wild Things, Bloody Mary and Candy Stripers.

“Kill Count” has 30 videos including Anatomy 1 & 2, the Boogeyman series, Carver, the Plague, and The Cottage.

The “Cult” section has everything from Monty Python to The Last Dragon.

Crackle is easy to navigate and the commercials shown before the features are short and usually interesting.

Crackle doesn’t have the depth of Netflix, but since it is totally free, it is one of the best deals on the internet.

Crackle will play on your PC, or TV if you have a Roku player, Playstation, Blu-ray, iPad or iPhone.

I just visited the site and discovered that there is a reality TV show called "Mommy XXX". Huh? I weep for America.

It must be one of those web series where anything goes. I doubt it would be on a regular network. I never looked for anything like that. My tastes tend more to Seinfeld and the Three Stooges - of which Crackle has plenty.

Three Stooges - yes! As long as it is not the remake! Mommy XXX was on the home page so you couldn't miss it!

I visited the main page briefly, thankfully I didn't see the XXX show, but that will happen with these free sites. You say Sony owns it? Very cool. Kinda reminds me of Hulu. Amazing we can watch so much online now.

How would you compare this with I go there frequently and stream which is legal (downloading is not I believe).

Thanks for the information!

Thanks for checking in. That Mommie X thing is some sort of a reality web series about a woman who is the mother of a teenager, and the Mom is also a porn star. I looked it up after the previous comment. It is not an x rated show, although obviously it is mature themed. I have not seen, but I like Crackle a lot. I pay for Netflix and use it quite a bit, and Crackle comes in a close second.

Thanks for weighing in red. I don't know what is. But I am going to look into it. I don't think you can have too many free sites playing movies & tv shows.

Thanks for the tip! I'll have to check out Crackle. Also, I'm not surprised you can watch all the broadcast channels on the computer. Later!

Hi Kosmo. Thanks for reading. With ever escalating cable fees, some people are cutting back on their premium services and opting more for Netflix, Crackle and Roku type devices. I have cable but still use USTV Now (It has a great DVR feature) as well as Crackle, Netflix, and Roku.

Crackle is one of the free channels I get using Roku. Since I don't like horror movies or thrillers with tons of gore (OR all those old American TV shows), the number of movies I find there is limited. However, even though I only view a movie on Crackle occasionally, it's usually one I couldn't find on Netflix or Acorn Online TV, so I consider that a win-win--especially since it's entirely free.

Voted Up++ and shared

Thanks for the comment Jaye. I like Crackle and I don't mind the commercials. I use them as an excuse to get popcorn, soda or coffee!

Thanks Audrey. If it's free then its for me!!!!! And in this case, free is pretty good. They have lots of movies and TV shows. I am a Seinfeld fan, and while they don't have the whole series, they do put some different ones on every month. It's well worth checking out.

Bill, Thanks for sharing the news to me about Crackle. I don't watch that many movies now, but now when I'm in the mood, I know where to go for free. Voted up and sharing with HP followers.
