How to see Movies in YouTube

For a long time, I had no idea that YouTube has a remarkable collection of movies,called youtube movies, covering almost all the category of movies such as action, adventure, comedy, horror, science fiction, romance, mystery, documentaries and even Indian movies. If you want to watch new movies on YouTube, then simply it is not possible-only trailers are available .They usually provide popular old movies in their movie page of the site. However, you can watch some very good old movies in YouTube for free. In this hub I will list some of the interesting movies especially documentary and biography type movies that you can watch for free in their full length.

How to find YouTube Movies Online

There is no directly link to the movie section, unless in the main page you find any movie link in their “Most Popular” video section. It is better to enter directly the youtube movies page by going at www.youtube.com/movies. When you enter the movie page, on the top-left side you will see category section; click on the double arrow button to see all the available movie categories. Now, click on any category to see all the available movies on that particular subject.

Most Popular YouTube Movies

Jackie Chan movies are more popular in YouTube than any other movies. Apart from Jackie Chan, the other YouTube popular movie figure is Adolph Hitler. No, not any of his movies (I never heard of his acting in any film). One of the documentary made about the secret life of Hitler is among the most viewed YouTube movies. The following three Jackie Chan movies have record views in YouTube.

  • Wheels on Meals
  • The Young Master
  • Fantasy Mission Force

Recommended movies

If you love Lord of the Ring then I will suggest you to watch: The Hunt for Gollum - LOTR Prequel

This Lord of Ring Prequel is a 40-minute film about the search for Gollum. The two popular LOTR characters Aragorn and Gandalf were played by two replacement actors-this is a movie made by LOTR fans for its fans. The total cost of this movie is less than $5000 USD, but once you start watching it you will feel like you are watching real multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster.

You can start hunting this Gollum right now by going at-Hunt for Gollum. Alternatively, you can continue reading this hub and read my favorite YouTube section called biography and documentary. I usually buy documentary CDs in every week or at least twice a week. Mostly I love documentary about almost anything, ranging from space, origin or universe, black holes, to second world wars. Just look at my recommended list of YouTube documentary that can give you wealth of historical and scientific knowledge
