Louis2

 

Maybe you haven’t seen Louis C.K. in his FX series, or on the talk-show circuit.  But maybe you’ve heard of him.  Here’s a chance to see the grumpy comedian in a 2008 concert, just before he (kinda, sorta) hit the big-time.  Click here to watch his hour-long performance free of charge.

Memento

 


I’m not a huge fan of Batman chronicler Christopher Nolan; I think his films tend to be too clever for their own good.  But lord knows the man has his fans.  If you’re one of them, click here to see the movie that put Nolan on the map.  You’ll have to register with Hulu, but it’s free and, seriously now, have you got anything better to do?

Christine

 

Stephen King got mixed results when he chose to infuse life into inanimate objects.  In Insomnia, King created a pair of singing tennis shoes.  That was … interesting.  King had better luck with a 1958 Plymouth Fury, otherwise known as “Christine.”  Watch it – or her – for free by clicking here.

Cliff

 

If you’re afraid of heights, like I am, then the opening scene of this movie is the stuff of nightmares.  The rest of this 1993 action flick is about what we’ve come to expect from Sylvester Stallone:  silly, silly, and sillier.  Watch Cliffhanger (at least the first ten minutes) for free by clicking here.

Worst

 

Not long ago I watched The Room, quite possibly the worst movie I’ve ever seen – but in a unique way:  It truly was so bad that it was “good.”  Other people will tell you that I’m mistaken, that the worst movie ever made is in fact Troll 2, a low-budget mess released in 1990.  That movie was so god-awful that they made a documentary about it.  But guess what?  The documentary itself is an absolute delight.  Watch the doc, Best Worst Movie, for free by clicking here, or read my review by clicking here.

Dividend

 

Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor return for this 1951 comedy classic, a sequel to the previous year’s Father of the Bride.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that you have to pick your viewing poison:  The Internet Movie Database version is commercial-free, but the picture quality is not terribly sharp (click here).  The Hulu version is an excellent print – but it includes commercials (click here).

Creeps

 

“Virtually unnoticed during its brief theatrical run, this wildly entertaining horror-comedy achieved healthy cult status following its home-video and cable TV releases.”  Those aren’t my words; that’s from the plot synopsis on Rotten Tomatoes. I vaguely recall watching this thing years ago … late at night … on Cinemax … in a somewhat inebriated condition.  Watch it, if you dare, by clicking here.

HardTimes

 

I’m old enough to remember Charles Bronson back in his heyday, and it’s impossible to dismiss his once-formidable popularity.  In 1975, he was Hollywood’s fourth-highest box-office attraction, behind only Redford, Streisand, and Pacino.  A few years earlier, he received a Golden Globe for being “the most popular actor in the world.”  I never really understood his appeal, but Hard Times (1975) is Bronson in the midst of good times.  Watch it for free by clicking here.
