Here’s an article that I thought was odd:

The 10 movies you shouldn’t watch online

Movies are increasingly creeping online, as video sites like YouTube and Hulu are adding feature films to their extensive libraries.

At the Google-owned YouTube, there is the YouTube Screening Room, which every two weeks, adds four new films — mostly independent works — to the site. Hulu, the joint creation of NBC Universal and News Corp., has hundreds of films available for stream, from “Basic Instinct” to “Wuthering Heights.”

Of course, many people download films illegally on BitTorrent sites, but movies are nevertheless becoming more populated — legally — online.

Hulu recently added 1962’s “Lawrence of Arabia,” which begs the question: Should anyone watch a nearly four-hour-long epic of sweeping grandeur on their laptop? Or, heaven forbid, their cell phone?

Some of the films mentioned are pretty much no brainers: ArabiaLyndonStar WarsRaiders of the Lost ArkJaws, etc. But it’s nice to see movies like North by Northwest and The Third Man on the list.

As for You Got Mailfeh! Who cares?
