This is very cool: I just watched The Other Boleyn Girl on my computer! All the way here in Costa Rica from Hollywood. Or maybe India. Who knows? Gotta love technology. I believe my life is complete.
How can they do this? Here's their disclaimer:
"Watch-Movies.net is absolutly legal and contain only links to other sites on the Internet : (rapidshare.com, megaupload.com, megashare(s), mega, dailymotion.com, myspace.com, ouou.com, stage6.com, tudou.com, veoh.com, youku.com, youtube.com and others.)

Watch-movies.net is not responsible for the accuracy, compliance, copyright, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of other linked sites. If you have any legal issues please contact appropriate media file owners/hosters."
On each movie page, you can check whether your movie worked or not. On mine, 30% of the people who tried to watch this who couldn't get it to work. Watch-Man (apparently our host) says:
"Due a large amount of 'bad reports' related to new, especially 'now showing in theaters' blockbusters movies, I wish to notice that movie files have a very short lifetime (from hour to day) before they will be deleted. We are not hosting, not uploading movie files, we just search & collect movie files from the internet, therefore we can't fix broken file, we can just find another copy elsewhere and we are trying constantly to do it as fast as we can. Please be patient, sorry for any inconveniences!"
Is watching free movies stealing? Does this make me ethically challenged? I really don't want to answer that. I hope I can sleep tonight.
