YouTube Movies gets free selections added to its lineup

YouTube Movies features a wide selection of movies that users can rent for $2.99, but today we have discovered that YouTube Movies now features free movies in its lineup. The free section isn’t just released movies by any means, so don’t expect to get the latest and greatest. The free section does however feature a pretty nice set of older titles, including the popular Step Brothers, Resident Evil, Ghost Busters II, and more. Clicking on the movie page will bring up a description of the movie, a review of the movie from Rotten Tomatoes, and suggested movies.

Oh so you thought you’d get away with a free movie just like that? Sadly, the movies do feature advertisements. In the movie Step Brothers’ case it was about every 12 – 20 minutes. To us it still beats watching movies on television, and it’ll definitely be more interesting as more movies are added.
