Best Movies FREE on Youtube (PART ONE)


Jim Carrey (The Mask & The Truman Show)
The comedian who started on the predominantly black sketch comedy show ‘In Living Color’, makes quite the impression in these two films, the strictly comedic ‘The Mask’, as well as a psychological comedy-drama in ‘The Truman Show’. Both high profile films, Jim Carrey was awarded the golden globe for a lead actor in a drama at the 1999 ceremony. The energetic comedian has created thousands of memes and gifs from his exhilarating performances in these two movies, paving the way for other powerhouse appearances in 21st century comedies.

X-Files: I Want to Believe
Not the best movie, but you get what you pay for! It’s still the X-Files, which is enough to get you into the series, which is better than the film tenfold. Scully and Mulder appear together to solve their most important mission yet, in a film that feels like it needs more of something else to work. I recommend it because as a child I watched X-Files, so I know how good the show is (too much)

Head of State
If you are looking for a good time, just to put your feet up to release some of the tension built up, I recommend this movie. Made years before the reign of Barack Obama, ‘Head of State’ stars Chris Rock as a normal black man that makes an empassioned run for the highest office in the United States. It’s funny, witty, crude, and Chris Rock.

Agent Cody Banks
I saw this movie as a young man, and have not seen it since. I believe that I remember it to be a decent movie, then I rewatched the trailer, to find that Frankie Muniz still amuses me to this day. I always felt like after watching this movie and seeing ‘Malcolm in the Middle’, one day I’d be writing a review on a list for my blog. Well anyway, it’s a decent family movie with a little edge for the adults, even if the knife is dull.

The Longest Day
The Duke leads an all-star cast that includes Henry Fonda, Sean Connery, Richard Burton and Robert Mitchum, who play allied troops land in Normandy for The Longest Day. A movie that is worth watching with your children. It shows all the things that the modern world war 2 does, except that it is far more empathetic to the fight, and the characters are distressingly real.

Xfinity Watchathon Review (May 3rd)

They did let you see the sensational ‘Tenet. The new Billie Holiday Biopic was available, via Hulu. You had enough time to watch all of the Game of Thrones, which was nice for the people in these stressful times. Sometimes when things get real bad, we need a fill our minds with a captivating film that takes our breath away, bringing out the tears that are deep down and well prepared to emerge. Sometimes we need a laugh. The Xfinity Watchathon basically had you covered. Aside from the movies named at the top of the article, there were other dynamic picks available from the full array available from Cinemax and Starz. Was it enough? That’s the question we explore in this article. (Tenet Review coming soon)
Well…there was Frasier and that’s humorous. We also had Forrest Whittaker, who has captivated fans as the ‘Godfather of Harlem’ (If you saw Last King of Scotland, you’d understand what that mean can do). You also had other shows with robust black casts, including Power Book II: Ghost, Lovecraft Country, Insecure and the original Power series. From AMC+ We have options that are lyrically independent, some being internationally made. At a time when we have horrendous attacks on Asia American’s in the name of lunacy, AMC has gathered a healthy collection of Asia’s best.  South Korea’s ‘Chaser’ is highly recommend, Ai Wei Wei’s documentary is alluring, and the critically acclaimed Train to Busan is also available, also South Korean. The Ring series is available, watch with viewer discretion, very scary. AMC also offers a wide array of series, both old and new, including Walking Dead, Mad Men and Gangs of London. 

The preview of HBO Max also features most of their infamous series. Also available is the new Kate Winslet drama, ‘Mare of Easttown’, and the pulverizing documentary about Tiger Wood. A hefty 2000 movies were also available, with endless options and premier choices like ‘The New Mutants’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and the World War 2 flick ‘Midway’.
It was more of the same from Showtime and Starz, a grand selection that would entice any seasoned viewer. You had the test drive, however some of the vehicles fell flat. First, Hulu hardly offered any options, which is a shame because they may have gotten some business with the addiction of binge watching being an epidemic, their choices in series are supreme, for the right price. Paramount is also absent alongside Disney Plus, however a full library from Cinemax and Starz, providing you with the ultimate dose of hollywood. 

Xfinity did what was right, and as a company they are quite fair at collection time. Let’s just all be thankful for the luxury of the watchathon, with so much chaos beyond the screen, so much more than what is on the screen, just a two hour objective driven to provide us with insight into more than what we see…

My name is Anthony Day Jr…

I am an author/poet from New Haven, who also happens to be a movie buff!

I was first introduced to movies by my grandmother, Edwina Ruth Smith Thompson, one of the most vivacious woman ever to grace the East Coast of the United States of America. A love of Encore Westerns, she always relied on the TV to help her escape from the difficulties of the day. Her favorite stars…Marlon Brando, Bruce Lee and Robert Mitchum. She also enjoyed the work of Ed Harris, John Wayne and Ed Harris…with a soft spot for Walter Brennan.

Why do I operate this website?

  • To give readers in-depth lists of movies available free to stream at the time
  • To give readers reviews of underrated movies available to stream on today’s top streaming services (HULU, NETFLIX, AMAZON PRIME VIDEO, VUDU, TUBI, CRACKLE, HBO MAX, PARAMOUNT+, etc.)
  • I love movies, I’ve always been surrounded by people who love movies. I watch movies in my spare time, usually when writing on other projects

I am a survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault. Most people will tell me not to talk about it, however I feel as a man it is my duty to be a survivor, to provide one small story, the slightest glimpse of hope and understanding. Film has always provided a backdrop for my life, giving me context regarding all of the dreams that I don’t understand and the thoughts I’d rather not think of. There are some films that magically changed my life in three hours or less, I have always always found solace in film, I plan to spread word of the movies that I have seen.

THOUGHTS:

  • COVID 19 quarantine has given us all hardship. To provide a comprehensive vision of some of our best movies is one of the ways I feel I can help people get through the day.
  • I will write about movies, movies and moe movies
  • I hope to connect with as many viewers/readers as I can.

Looney Toons is on HBO Max and Disney Plus has….new cartoons (Opinion)

Beatles Vs Rolling Stones, Trump Vs Biden, Blur Vs Oasis ….. Looney Toons vs Disney? HBO vs Disney Plus?

We should all be aware of this. Disney Plus is still worth the money, because it features almost all of their animated movies, however it is incredibly lacking in cartoons from the Early 20th century. It’s really sad because a lot of them are good, and I’m a black man. Some of them feature incredibly racist visions and portrayals of black folk that make me uncomfortable, let alone a young child. They would be counterproductive, no matter your political stance, unless you foster prejudice.
That being said, it’s a dang shame, because those cartoons are really good. I grew watching Disney at home and Warner Bros. Looney Toons on weekends at my grandmothers. I enjoyed both, however it wasn’t Bugs Bunny that tantalized my life…It also wasn’t Mickey, it happened to be Goofy who was my favorite. My grandmother’s old theory was that Goofy was meant to be black, she also said that Daffy was black. This is not a social issues review, it’s an honest assessment of why I feel both hurt, and happy, about the exclusion of some cartoons from the Disney catalog. First, we should start by noting that HBO Max has essentially every Looney Toons cartoon ever made, the list is endless, starting from the very beginning with unfamiliar black and white detail, to the all too familiar Vulture and Foghorn Leghorn (My mother’s favorite) HBO Max still needs to fix the accessibility on some services, I’m not sure about other cable companies or how it runs on the computer. For a provider that releases cutting edge programming, they needed to focus less on securing sub par movies with huge stars needlessly placed, and instead work on giving us cutting edge utilities.
The fact that Disney Plus is lacking in cartoons is one of the saddest things that ever happened in my life. When Disney announced the service, I literally jumped up. To not have the best cartoons is unacceptable, and it’s shameless, because shame on Disney for essentially being a hitler-esque company, giving us donkeys, african natives and big lips, now they are scared to face the truth.
Watching Looney Toons is so much more relaxing, though I did test both theme parks and I enjoyed Disney more, and I will always love the Disney Cartoons. It’s a shame Looney Toons didn’t make movies back in the day…I am sorely missing my favorites.
More than anything, technically speaking, both services are shaky. They have many problems that are being fixed. I haven’t seen too much progress from Disney, however if I wrote this article a month ago I’d have been a lot harsher on HBO MAX. The good part is that looking through both services is like an amusement park in itself, though Six Flags isn’t Universal Studios

BEST MOVIES ON CRACKLE (Month of May) (PART 2)


Starred Up (9 out of 10) – What can be said about the British prison drama? It is brilliant, the HBO Series ‘OZ’, combined into an hour and a half. There is family drama, prison drama…therapy drama! This movie is a must see, with some recognizable faces like Ben Mendelson and Rupert Friend.

War of the Worlds (10 out of 10) – One of the greatest films to ever grace the big screen, the original War of the Worlds is available for free anywhere on Crackle. (Tom Cruise and Big Spielberg did the original justice IMO)

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (6 out of 10) – Not the best movie on the list, a six isn’t the greatest score. Well it’s a good six, ‘Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow’ follows a giant robot attack on New York City in the early twentieth century. Featuring an somewhat early powerhouse performance from Angelina Jolie, also starring Gwenyth Paltrow and Jude Law, this film is a worth a watch with adolescents, or on a rainy Sunday. C’mon, it’s not that bad!

Phantasm (8 out of 10) – The classic horror fantasy film from 1979, which spawned many sequels, is available to watch on Crackle. I watched this with my father when I was far too young (don’t try this at home). Very scary, low key, and not well known. 

The Messenger (8 out of 10) – War Picture that follows a young soldier, played by the brilliant Ben Foster, who is assigned to a tough job with Woody Harrelson’s character, notifying families that their family members have passed. He is enigmatic in his role, essentially life changing. 

New Movies on Amazon Prime

Top Picks
French Connection (10 out of 10) – Brilliant. Gene Hackmen at his best.Truly invigorating crime drama
Sixth Sense (9 out of 10) – Too scary for me, does that tell ya enough?
Skyfall (8 out of 10) – Entertaining Bond film, not the best, surely far from the worst
