Reviews for the latest movies in theaters and on DVD.

Glimpse of the future?

I went to youtube tonight and could not help but notice an ad in the top right corner which said watch Bram Stoker's Dracula. This movie which is hardly ever spoken about is one of my personal favorites. I clicked on it and sure enough youtube has the entire film which is over two hours but uploaded as part of one video. I did not know this was possible on youtube as I always thought the max on one video was ten minutes. Obviously there is some sort of deal here between Youtube and Crackle, the site where the streaming film originates from. There are commercials during the playback as well but this is definitely interesting. Perhaps this is a peek into the future of free (and legal) video on demand movies on the internet.

Embedding is disabled for this video for obvious reasons. So here is the direct link.
