YouTube was all the rage when it was first introduced to us and for a time there, was one of our only sources for funny videos and movies. With more and more streaming services taking precedence now, we have almost forgotten about YouTube (until there’s a cat on a piano video, that is). But YouTube still has some beautiful gems of movies that don’t come out on any other platform. And the best part about them? They’re always free to stream! So give your Netflix account a much-needed break and check out these super interesting picks instead!
