In the past, FlashRouters has highlighted some of the best free movies streaming on YouTube, but the list grew outdated pretty fast. Film companies and their lawyers are notorious for acting with lightning quickness when one of their films is being streamed for free without their permission.
In that spirit, here is a new list – one which will be updated regularly – to keep our readers aware of the great full, free movies streaming on YouTube. If by the time you read the post the link for the movie is rendered invalid, we apologize, but as we said, these things pop up and disappear with stunning speed.
Anyway, we hope you get some enjoyment out of our favorite free movies streaming on YouTube. This is a varied list, from classic westerns to anime to documentaries and beyond. But first…
Enjoy the Best Free Movies Streaming on YouTube with a FlashRouter
Before we dig into the list of the best full free movies streaming on YouTube, we want to let you know that you can vastly improve your YouTube streaming experience by purchasing a FlashRouter.

Best Full Free Movies Streaming on YouTube in 2015
The Wind Rises – Hayao Miyazaki, the man behind such animated wonders as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, has sadly stated that The Wind Rises will be his last feature length film. So take advantage of the opportunity to stream this lovely movie, about the life of Jiro Horikoshi who designed fighter planes for WWII, for free and while you can.
Wendy and Lucy – A heartbreaking story of a young woman (Michelle Williams, in a wonderfully melancholy performance) of limited means who loses her dog en route to a potentially lucrative job. If it sounds like a bummer, that’s cause it is, but writer/director Kelly Reichardt’s visual and narrative storytelling style is as poetic as ever in Wendy and Lucy (also, hopefully Spanish subtitles don’t bother you).
Old Joy – Keep the Kelly Reichardt marathon rolling with Old Joy, her breakthrough movie. Like Wendy and Lucy, the action is kept to a deliberate and relaxed minimum, as two old friends (Daniel London, Will Oldham) reunite to go camping in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. Even though not much happens, there’s a wealth of meaning behind what few words there are, as well as the silences.
Django Unchained – In stark contrast to Old Joy, we have Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino’s latest campaign in his cinematic war on history’s great evils. Having successfully killed Hitler in Inglorious Basterds, Tarantino turns his on sights American slavery, telling the tale of an enslaved man named Django (Jamie Foxx) and his quest to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a brutal slaveowner (Leonardo Dicaprio). As ever, Tarantino’s over-charged moviemaking mojo makes even the most harrowing topics exciting to watch.
Grave of the Fireflies – Thought Wendy and Lucy was depressing? Well, you don’t know from depressing until you’ve seen Grave of the Fireflies, an absolutely devastating and beautiful animated movie about a young boy and his little sister’s attempts to survive without their parents in Japan as WWII comes to an end. The movie’s only an hour and a half but allot yourself some recovery/crying time.
Let the Fire Burn – After you’ve finished crying over Grave of the Fireflies, maybe turn your emotional dial towards righteous anger; we guarantee you’ll be feeling a lot of it after Let the Fire Burn. A formatively adventurous documentary (built entirely out of footage, with no talking heads), Let the Fire Burn documents a 1985 stand-off between the Philadelphia police and MOVE – a radical black liberation group – that resulted in the death of 11 MOVE members, including 5 children.
Big Trouble in Little China – Yes, we wrote about this one recently since it just emerged on Amazon Prime Instant last month, but what can we say? We love Big Trouble in Little China. It’s got Kurt Russell doing an on-again-off-again John Wayne impression as wisecracking truck driver John Burton, who agrees to help his friend rescue his fiancee from a mystical gang in Chinatown, despite not being particularly up to the task. It’s all very silly and a whole lot of fun.
No Country for Old Men – The Coen Brothers are not exactly known for looseness or excess in their movies, but even by their standards, No Country for Old Men is a remarkably taut movie. Based on Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same name, No Country for Old Men is a tense, often shocking thriller, featuring three pitch-perfect lead performances (Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem), that gets up a good philosophical head of steam about the nature of violence which will stay with you for years.
The Abominable Dr. Phibes – If you were told about a movie from 1971 about a man, left maimed and widowed by a horrific car crash, who exacts Old-Testament-based revenge on the doctors he blames for his wife’s death, who would you want playing that role? That’s right: you’d want Vincent Price, and that’s exactly what you get in the fabulously entertaining camp classic The Abominable Dr. Phibes.
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! – And we close out this month’s free streaming YouTube movies with one of Russ Meyer’s classic exploitation films. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! follows three go-go dancers as they wreak havoc all over a California desert, kidnapping and murdering their way into trash cinema history. As ever in a Meyer production, the violence is consistent, the female bodily proportions are outlandish and unrealistic, and the commitment to provocation is something to behold.
