Watch Moon on YouTube. For Free. Legally. Right Now

Update: I think this is US only because who the hell knows why.

I’m not sure what sort of crazy experiment is going on right now over at YouTube, but they’ve decided that not enough people have seen Duncan Jones’ sci-fi masterpiece Moon (and they’re right). As such, you can now watch the ENTIRE movie on YouTube for free.

Granted there’s limited commercial interruption which sort of kills the mood, like trying to watch Schindler’s List on TNT when there are Schticky ads every ten minutes, but it’s still better than nothing. Well, it’s not technically better than piracy, but at least you don’t have to feel bad about it.

  1. The fact that the director is David Bowie’s son actually makes it a better movie. In my opinion with Moon and Source Code, he already lives up to his father.

  2. a great movie, and a great initiative to put it legally online…
    but unfortunately only in the US 🙁

    i dont understand that restriction

  3. Yup, Germany’s not on the have-a-free-look-list as I can tell 😉

    I guess because they have no ads booked outside the US, so nobody is paying for those views.
    Damn shame.

  4. ^^^ How could he know it doesn’t work outside the US when it works for him, being in the US? I’m sure he knows a lot of his fans are international, but it’s not his job to stay updated on copyright law for every work posted on youtube. Christ, you sound conceited.

  5. This is seriously one of the greatest sci-fi movies I’ve ever seen. Kevin Spacey was also great as the robot GERTY. I thought he really nailed showing emotion by not being able to show emotion. He was like the anti HAL 9000.

  6. For a concept junkie, this film was perfect. Except for the awful acting by Rockwell and aura of crap that radiated out from my screen as I watched it, it was decent.

  7. @Bad Acid: you have a point, although that’s not exactly what I said. In all fairness, he does have a very US-centric feel to his articles.
    On topic: I’m glad to have seen this movie already, it’s one of my favorites.

  8. Damn…… least i got this on DVD but was seriously disappointed when i checked the youtube channel and saw the anime and other movies and that you cant view outside the US……. 🙁
