YouTube Goes Hollywood

I thought this was an interesting find. You know how much Boomer Chick just LOVES YouTube. Well, now they're getting ready to offer full length movies from MGM Studios for FREE right there at the YouTube's website.

According to this article from NY Times...

"Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios will kick off the partnership by posting episodes of its decade-old “American Gladiators” program to YouTube, along with full-length action films like “Bulletproof Monk” and “The Magnificent Seven” and clips from popular movies like “Legally Blonde.” These will be free to watch, with ads running alongside the video."

They're saying the initial lineup might not be too compelling, but I figure if it catches on, they'll be in a better position to offer more.

  1. Speaking of that MGM lion, he's buried in a cemetery in California along with a lot of other famous movie animals.

  5. Depends on the movies. If we've already seen them, they won't be too exciting. My library rents out DVDs and you can reserve them,which is a great deal, since they're more recent and free.
