You can watch The Godfather for free via Youtube UPDATED

first_imgUpdate: Wow, that was fast… It’s been removed.Using the embedded video above can watch The Godfather, in its entirety, for free. Enjoy!It’s no secret that since the day they bought YouTube, Google has wanted it to be more than simply a place for amusing cat videos. Sure, YouTube loves viral videos, but they’ve also done their best to promote premium content. Just about every user interface element on the site is designed to direct people to top-notch content, not the thousands of hours of user-generated crap that gets uploaded every day.In addition to promoting the best videos (and allowing uploaders to make some money from them), YouTube has also delved into television and movie. The Movies section gives people a place where they can stream recently released films for $4 a pop or old ones for free and the Shows section does the same for television. It’s great for users: you can sit down and watch all of Star Trek: The Original Series while at work, without ever having to pay a cent or get up from your desk. And it’s a Google-owned site, so you don’t have to worry about using any of those sketchy “watch [you show of choice] online” sites.As for The Godfather specifically, it was uploaded by Sony Pictures UK, and currently has 762 likes and just 3 dislikes. It’s the only full movie they’ve uploaded and while the view numbers are not available yet, it already has a number of YouTube honors for the amount of views its received. The users, as you can probably guess, are overjoyed…The film, which won big at the 1972 Academy Awards, is highly regarded in the cinema world and is considered by the AFI as being the 3rd best movie of all time.  (So you should watch it if you haven’t yet.)via TNWlast_img read more
