Internet Movie Database, the popular film and TV reference website owned by Amazon.com, has begun showing free streaming movies and television episodes for users in the United States.

The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo
Manimal? Nice try. I won't be happy until I can get The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo.
No Automan either. I am very disappointed.

Tales of the Gold Monkey
Oh wait, I live in the UK.

piffle and tosh!
What, no Streethawk?
Nothing in UK. NOW I'M DISAPPOINTED!!!
Shame, bittorrent I suppose then...
Manimal et al
These films should really be the movie equivalent of abandonwarez by now - who in their right might would actually _pay_ for them?
Although I noticed "Anaconda" was still on FilmFlex for about £3 a little while ago - wibble.
Mines the one with the BeebEm and Repton in the pocket, cheers.
Talk about this today on my show
Thanks for this article. It was a good insight into IMDB and Amazon's strategy. I used it as a reference on my daily tech show on Mobuzz today. Thanks again, here is the episode:
wot a waste
dunno about showing movies, be better if they could actually find some pictures of some actors to go on their pages. Every time I goto IMDB to find some info on a film and the actors in it there are no pics of the actors available . . .database my arse.
