    If you like your B-movies as amusingly incompetent as possible, Hard Ticket to Hawaii is up in full on youtube. Not going to link directly as I don't know the copyright status of that.

    If you have Apple TV, there’s a few apps that stream free classic movies from the 1920s up to the 1950s. They’ve fairly extensive amount of titles, many in HD quality.

    Thanks, just watched the Brendan Gleeson one. Mad stuff altogether. I've very biased towards Gleeson so I enjoyed it.

    Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Walter Matthau star in a farcical murder mystery crime caper. Good fun, doesn't take itself seriously.

    Was some mistake in copyright that meant it entered the public domain so it's available on Youtube and some movie libraries for free.

    Here's one link, but an ad blocker is essential as they've riddled it with them!

    All4 has a fairly mixed bag of movies available for free, some great ones that are well known and some world cinema, film4 offerings and such, though ads are frequent. Sign up with email is necessary but it's open to Irish residents.

    loads of free public domain movies on the Internet Archive (archive.org) - most of them very old. They have Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space (often cited as the worst movie ever made) if you want a laugh.

    Also, there are some officially free streams at times. Most of these are US evening time, so middle of the night here, but not all. For example, Lionsgate UK are streaming La La Land at 6PM on Saturday:



    then:
    • 09 May: Eddie The Eagle
    • 16 May: Bend It Like Beckham
    • 23 May: The Hunger Games
