Godzilla is a movie that almost everyone is familiar with. This year, Warner Bros Pictures together with Legendary Pictures have created yet another epic adventure of this beloved monster.

Godzilla stars Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Bryan Cranston. The famous monster fights malevolent creatures who threaten mankind’s existence. Godzilla comes to the rescue to restore balance in the world.
Godzilla is better than the 1980s and 90s version with the technological advancements that have been used to create the film to create some visually impressive effects. However, it’s not as suspenseful as one would have hoped for. Nevertheless, it’s excitingly fresh and Godzilla remains a force to be reckoned with. For those who watch free download movies on movie2k, this is a must-watch.

Under the Skin is an excellent film for those who watch free movies online. It’s a polarizing movie, and provides visually impressive graphics and effects. It’s a riveting movie and you’ll find some images here that you’ve probably never seen before.
It’s a perception film, to the point that you can actually feel the cold while watching it. Jonathan Glazer made a successful movie and your eyes will create the story in your mind. It’s a masterpiece in a unique and strange way, but the only way to really understand why a lot of people enjoyed this film is by watching it yourself.

The Quiet Ones is a possession story set in the 70s but you’re likely to remember the setting than the story. It doesn’t have a clear plot and you shouldn’t expect any nice takeaways. But it’s a watchable film especially if you’re interested in the thrills and scares.

The Raid 2 is a brilliant and dazzling movie, with lots of brutality and action you wouldn’t get bored at all in spite of the fact that it runs for two and a half hours. It’s so impressive that “over the top” would not even describe it.
One of the free download movies you can watch is Veronica Mars. This film is directed and written by Rob Thomas. It stars Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni and Jason Dohring.

Directed and written by Lars von Trier, Nymphomanic: Vol. II stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgard.
The film is able to showcase a sense of sadness and loss for the main character and it illustrates the terrible side of sex. However, unless you enjoyed watching Volume 1, you probably won’t care much for Volume 2. There’s boldness in the film but it’s too excessive to the point of being unpleasant.
If you enjoy this type of movies however there’s no reason why you shouldn’t watch it when you watch free movies online.

The Amazing SpiderMan 2 is still doing extremely well judging by the number of people watching it online and in the cinemas. If it’s a comedy you’re after, look no further than the raunchy Neighbors, starring Seth Rogers, Zach Efron and Rose Byrne. We quite liked The Other Woman too!

As a result, a young underappreciated housewife named Illa connects with a lonely old man and together they create a fantasy world through notes they stuck in their lunchboxes. Now they face a dilemma that could destroy both their realities.
Directed and written by Ritesh Batra, The Lunchbox stars Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Nimrat Kaur. It’s a warmly predictable film and a feast of delightful scenes connecting food and love that you probably never saw in a movie before.
There’s nothing original about the film and yet you would still find yourself enjoying every bit of it. If you enjoy free download movies, make sure to include this one in your list.
We are the Best is a film about two youngsters who set out to form an all-girl punk band and recruiting a schoolmate to be their guitarist. This film is an adaptation of Lukas Moodysson’s wife Coco’s novel. If you are inclined to watch free movies online, you can watch We are the Best and will certainly have a blast.
Starring Mira Grosin, Mira Barkhammar and Liv LeMoyne, We are the Best is full of humor and laughter while at the same time celebrating the joys of youth, rebellion and friendship. Excellent performances by the cast, you’ll never see punk rock being portrayed in a delightful way on screen.
Film maker Moodysson has made quite a comeback with this film that will sure to get your attention right until the very end. Expect a lot of nice barbs, it’s a fresh and funny movie that perfectly encapsulates the life of the youth.
The sequel to 2013’s “A Haunted House,” Michael Tiddes’ “A Haunted House 2” begins where the 2013 hit ended with Malcolm, his girlfriend Kisha, and his cousin Ray Ray figuring in a vehicular accident and the cousins leaving Kisha in the back seat. A year later, Malcolm is married and living in a new home, as well as experiencing the first of many bouts with the supernatural, including an apparently undead and demonic Kisha who moves in across Malcolm’s street.
“A Haunted House 2” can be seen as one of free download movies online starring Marlon Wayans as Malcolm with Essence Atkins as Kisha and Jaime Pressly as Megan, Malcolm’s new wife. Ray Ray is Affion Crockett, Ashley Richards and Steele Stebbins play Megan’s daughter Becky and son Wyatt, respectively.
“A Haunted House 2” is not only a comedy/horror film but a hybrid of sorts, with parody and culture playing out at every turn. This film is also racist, sexist, and homophobic. Unless you’re a Wayans fan, it’s doubtful you will enjoy “A Haunted House 2” with its vulgarity and violence (which it passes off as funny) that seems to want to offend people as much as it can just for laughs. Sadly, “A Haunted House 2” is just way too offensive and crude to even elicit a chuckle.
Filmed at the breath-taking Katmai National Park in the country’s 49th state, directors Keith Scholey and Alastair Fothergill”s nature documentary, “Bears,” narrated by John C. Reilly, tells the story of the grizzly bear family of Sky and her newly-born cubs Amber and Scout. “Bears” is not just another documentary about animals; it has personality, drama, and moxie. While Olivia Holt sings “Carry On” beautifully for this film, Reilly’s cheerful narration manages to bring a balance between serious information and charming sense of humor, especially with the imagined dialogue between Sky and her cubs.
Viewers will find themselves following Sky, Scout, and Amber as they leave their comfortable den to go on a trek that has peril splashed all over in search for spawning salmon. Scholey and Fothergill, pros of wildlife documentary, apply their tried and tested formula of giving animals human names, providing information that is well-researched and accurate, and taking such stunning visual footage that makes you wonder how exactly they were excellently shot.
Although rated G, parents should probably explain a scene in which a male bear attempts to eat one of the cubs. Other than that, “Bears” is a retelling of family ties and perseverance, showcasing a mother’s protection for her cubs and an iron-clad determination to beat all odds. Perfect to watch on movie2k, a website where you can download and watch movies of different genres including documentaries, “Bears” could very well have been made for Mother’s Day.
“The Other Woman,” one of numerous free download movies already available online, is about a man whose wife and two mistresses join forces to give him his just desserts. This man’s duplicity (well, in this case, his triplicity, if there’s such a word) is brought to light in a series of antics that run the gamut from a montage of revenge clichés to madcap dashes to foreign climes.
Cameron Diaz is first mistress, smart lawyer Carly Whitten, Leslie Mann is the scatter-brained, kooky wife Kate King, and Kate Upton is second mister, glamorous but totally naïve second mister Amber. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau trades in his “Games of Thrones” Jaime Lannister for that of Mark King, the cause for these women’s heartache. Don Johnson, who plays Carly’s father Frank Whitten and Taylor Kinney, who plays Kate’s brother Phil, complete the cast.
Although “The Other Woman” hints at “The First Wives’ Club” meets “Bridesmaids” with some sprinkling of “Working Girl,” in more ways than one, director Nick Cassavetes manages to turn this film from silly, nonsensical comedy into smart, revenge comedy. It may not give viewers less than gas-inducing laughs but for a few giggles, “The Other Woman” is worth watching on movie2k.
Joe is a story about an ex-convict who meets a young boy who changed his world, and he’s now torn between redemption and ruin. Starring Nicolas Cage, Gary Poulter and Tye Sheridan, Joe is directed by David Gordon Green and written by Larry Brown (novel) with screenplay by Gary Hawkins.
Joe is a hard-living hot tempered guy who’s trying to avoid getting in trouble. One day he meets a 15-year old kid and his fate suddenly changes. It’s definitely one of the good films you can watch through free movie streaming, with excellent performances from the actors, particularly Sheridan who brings out the best in Cage’s acting.
It’s drama at its best, and the tough rural drama that Gordon is able to create makes it a memorable film. This isn’t just another “Nicolas Cage” movie but instead, it’s an endearing movie that will melt your heart.
Watch free movies online with powerful performances and master storytelling like “Locke,” the story of Ivan Locke, a man who attempts to keep his life from collapsing as a result of a three-fold crisis. A single-location film reminiscent of “Buried” starring Ryan Reynolds, “Locke” takes place in his moving BMW as he drives during the night from Birmingham to London after a phone call from a woman about to give birth to his child, the result of a one-night stand.
Tom Hardy, as Ivan Locke, is not terrifying in this film as he was as über-terrorist Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises,” a film which wasted his talents as an actor. For “Locke,” Hardy uses his voice and facial expressions, two key elements in great theater performances. And Hardy might as well be on stage instead of behind a car’s wheels with his powerful soliloquy, rages, and engagement with people’s disembodied voices belonging to Ben Daniels (Gareth), Andrew Scott (Donal), Katrina (Ruth Wilson), and Bethan (Olivia Colman).
Director/writer Steven Knight’s “Locke” is a completely solo performance, notwithstanding those voices. Kudos to Knight for bringing out Hardy’s talent as a soloist in this nocturnal drama to present Ivan Locke, a control freak who loses control, to awed audiences. “Locke” is a thriller second to none as it shows the audience how pragmatism is eroded by stress in someone whose middle name is cool. Movie2k staff think this a good drama to watch!
“Heaven Is For Real” is the real story of Nebraska Pastor Todd Burpo’s son Colton who visited heaven without actually dying; anesthesia administered during four-year-old Colton’s appendectomy got him to go to heaven, come back, and insist that Jesus informed him about a lot of things, including those which he couldn’t possibly know of like an older sister who died from a miscarriage. If you want to watch free movies online, “Heaven Is For Real” would be a good choice for starters.
Greg Kinnear stars as Pastor Todd Burpo, who wrote the 2010 non-fiction “Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.” The pastor’s wife Sonja is portrayed by Kelly Reilly and the adorable Colton Burpo is portrayed by the equally adorable Connor Corum. Director Randall Wallace of “Secretariat,” “The Man in the Iron Mask,” and “We Were Soldiers” fame gives viewers on what could be the after life for those who believe.
“Heaven Is For Real” is a series of charming scenes with a lot of tears from awe as Colton shares the knowledge that he acquired from his encounter with Jesus who, incidentally, looks a lot like Kenny Loggins in this film. “Heaven Is For Real” is family-friendly and faith-oriented and if you’re into either or both types of films, then Heaven just might prove very real indeed to you! As always, Movie2k has it here for you to watch, free and exclusive!
21-year-old Tim Russell’s older sister Kaylie tries her best to have Tim, a patient at St. Aidan’s Mental Facility, exonerated from the murder of their father which she says he didn’t commit 11 years ago. According to Kaylie, it was the Lasser Glass, a mirror that is actually a portal for a supernatural evil capable of possessing anyone or any family that it comes into contact with, that did it. “Oculus,” one of many free download movies you can enjoy in the comfort of your home, is not the story of the template haunted house viewers are familiar with: this film is determined to scare you with something so ordinary as a mirror.
Mike Flanagan directs this thriller of a horror movie which stars Brenton Thwaites as Tim Russell and Karen Gullan as Tim’s older sister Kaylie. Possessed mother Marie Russell is portrayed by Katee Sackhoff and Rory Cochrane is Alan Russell, the second casualty in that family’s involvement with the Lasser Glass.
Mainstream reviews have praised “Oculus: for being a horror movie with an interesting, albeit still horrifying, narrative, the result of director Flanagan’s intricate method of weaving two very distinct timelines into one disturbing end: dogged determination is never really a match for true evil that has had centuries of perfecting murderous ways done in systematic precision.
“Transcendence” is the story of leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) researcher Dr. Will Caster and the controversial experiments which have made him not only famous but the prime target of extremists who are determined to stop the spread of Caster’s nanotechnology. “Transcendence” has a message which has been the springboard for many a sci-fi movie: humans must not make computers sentient. “Transcendence” is like last year’s “Her,” only more menacing, and much closer to potential realization.
Directed by Christopher Nolan’s erstwhile cinematographer Wally Pfister, “Transcendence” has Johnny Depp as Caster while his wife Evelyn is portrayed by Rebecca Hall. Paul Bettany is Max Waters, Caster’s best friend and Kate Mara is extremist Bree Evans. Morgan Freeman is government scientist Joseph Tagger and Cilliam Murphy is federal agent Donald Buchanan.
Like all sci-fi films of this AI-get-the-better-of-humans persuasion, “Transcendence” is entertaining to watch for all its digital effects, including those microscopic nanobots swarming into unsuspecting human bodies. And, again, like all sci-films about AI, “Transcendence” once more tackles the intriguing question: when does the use of AI give you the license to play god? See “Transcendence” on movie2k, a website where you can download and watch it and other movies as well.
“Draft Day” explores that mythical occurrence when bids are made by football franchises for the best college football players. The film covers just a 24-hour day period where the Cleveland Browns football team manager is shown balancing his personal life with his quest to restore his team’s former glory.
Kevin Costners stars in this Ivan Reitman film as Sonny Weaver, Jr., with Rosanna Arquette as Sonny’s ex-wife Angie, Denis Leary as the Browns’ Coach Penn, Sam Elliot as college football Coach Moore, Sean Combs as a sports agent, Chi McBride as rival manager Walt Gordon, Ellen Burstyn as Sonny’s mom, Jennifer Garner as Sonny’s pregnant girlfriend Ali, and Frank Lagella as Browns’ owner Anthony Molina.
With an ensemble like that, it’s not surprising that “Draft Day” would be good to watch for football aficionados who are Hollywood fans at the same time. This film is entertaining whether or not you know how football is played. Reitman has managed to put zippy energy into the script which is simple and clear: the characters are well-defined enough to show the viewers what their respective relationships are to football. “Draft Day” is a free movie streaming must-see not only for Costner fans and sports enthusiasts but for everybody who still think football means David Beckham.
A sequel to the successful 2011 “Rio” animated feature, “Rio 2” doesn’t live up to the expectations of what a sequel is supposed to be: more of everything. The winning formula for the first “Rio” apparently hasn’t done much for the second installment in the saga of Blu and his Spix macaw family. The sequel brings viewers to the Amazon, not really far from their Rio de Janeiro sanctuary, where Blu’s wife Jewel decides to look for their blue macaw relatives.
Blu is voiced by Jesse Eisenberg, Jewel by Anne Hathaway, Jewel’s father Eduardo by Andy Garcia, Blu’s rival Roberto by Bruno Mars, and revenge-obsessed Nigel by Jemaine Clement.
Some animated feature films are meant solely for children and some can be entertaining for adults as well (think “Up,” “Happy Feet,” and “Frozen”), but some can be pretty boring even for little ones. “Rio 2” has its share of impressive musical numbers done in swooping 3D, but this sequel has suddenly transformed Blu into a clueless creature who is completely unaware of threats from grudge-bearing Nigel and shady loggers. Even children who watch “Rio 2” on movie2k, a website where you can stream and watch other movies for free, might notice how Blu doesn’t seem to enjoy the natural splendor that their sanctuary offers. It seems that all enthusiasm has gone out from Blu in “Rio 2”; is this what marriage does for a blue macaw?
Given Arnold Schawrzenegger’s recent public behavior and the funny haircut his character wears in Sabotage, this movie is a 21st century version of a B-rated spaghetti western that tries its best to appear to be directed by Sam Peckinpah (for the nihilism, violence, and gore). Director David Ayer, who also co-wrote the script, should probably just stick to directing like Ben Affleck, and not write any more scripts; not like Sabotage anyway.
The plot is simple enough: an elite, albeit trash-talking and hard-partying, task force of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is taken down, one after the other, after robbing the safe house of a drug cartel. It’s how the movie plays out that’s complicated: the good guys become thugs and take on the personalities of cartel members and the viewer doesn’t even know why. It isn’t even explained how Schwarzenegger as John Wharton became “Breacher” and ditto for Sam Worthington as “Monster,” Terence Howard as “Sugar,” Joe Maganiello as “Grinder,” Kevin Vance as “Tripod,” Josh Halloway as “Neck,” and Stockard Channing as “Rizzo.”
Yes, the plot revolves around the age-old agent-gone-rogue scenario, but even viewers who expect a lot of slashing, shooting, whacking, and other serious bodily dismemberments will be appalled at the scenes where things such as fart jokes, a bottle of piss used on stake-out, a toilet clogged with feces, and a urinal gag, among other nausea-inducing elements in the movie. If you have always been a Schwarzenegger fan, however, download Sabotage from movie2k, a website where you can watch and download other movies. After all, it isn’t everyday that one gets to see The Austrian Oak in a slasher movie.
In “The Amazing Spiderman 2,” Peter Parker realizes that being Spiderman means so much more than swinging nonchalantly between skyscrapers and being an applauded hero. In this sequel of a Spiderman eons away different from the last decade’s Spidey in which Tobey Maguire starred, eels are genetically altered and transforms a tech geek into Spiderman’s formidable enemy to date, Electro, the blue meanie with an erstwhile crush on Spiderman.
Andrew Garfield reprises his role as Peter Parker, with real-life girlfriend Emma Stone playing Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy. Dane DeHaan plays Parker’s best friend-turned-enemy Harry Osborne/Green Goblin and Chris Cooper (uncredited) plays Harry’s father Norman. Jamie Foxx is, sadly miscast, Matt Dillon a.k.a. Electro. There’s Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, Sally Field as Aunt May, and Campbell Scott and Embeth Davidtz as Parker’s parents Richard and Mary.
It will be very obvious to viewers that director Marc Webb had a hard time juggling too many overlapping elements in this free movie streaming sequel, veering dangerously close to Christopher Nolan’s plethora of villains in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Sam Raimi’s overly-plotted rendition of “Spiderman 3.” Like the other Spidey franchises, this version is worth watching on movie2k, if only for superb digital effects and the blazing chemistry between Garfield and Stone.
“Bad Words” is former child actor Jason Bateman’s foray into a directorial feature, a movie that starts off as gleefully vitriolic and then ends with a disappointing finish. “Bad Words” is black comedy, a story about a fortysomething man who exploits what may be a loophole in the spelling bee for middle-school students, earning the ire of not only the contest organizers but the parents and students as well. You would definitely want to watch this free movie streaming treat this spring, if only to have some real laugh-out-loud moments because Bateman, who also stars in “Bad Words,” is so good to watch when he is portrays despicable misanthropes.
Bateman is Guy Trilby, Rohan Chand, all of 10 years old, is simply adorable as the optimistic prodigy Chaitanya Chopra, stealing every scene he’s in, who want to be Guy’s best friend, Kathryn Hahn is online journalist Jenny Widgeon, Allison Janney is the stodgy Golden Quill spelling bee organizer Dr. Bernice Deagan, and Philip Baker Hall is Dr. Bill Bowman, President of the Golden Quill spelling bee.
“Bad Words” is highly recommended if you want to see why the American obsession for big victories has become a national past time. The only thing that will keep “Bad Words” from getting a full five-star rating would be its vagueness of purpose in the end: Trilby’s actual reason for joining the spelling bee (not for the money) may be misguided revenge. Still, this could prove to be negligible because of Bateman’s hilarious portrayal of a mean-spirited and foul-mouthed character with endearing traits that he keeps hidden.
“Cesar Chavez” is a drama of the life of labor leader Cesar Chavez unfolded in a series of events that led to the grape strike in California. Driven, quiet, fearless Cesar Chavez and his real life story may have made considerable strides in the movement of farm workers – first contracts ever for agricultural workers and legislation which became law on the right of workers to form a union – but farm workers continue to suffer indignities today even before the 1962 creation of Chavez’s union. Several scenes in “Cesar Chavez” will hold the interest of viewers, albeit in the same way that a well-made documentary can.
Michael Peña portrays the titular role of Cesar Chavez and America Ferrera is Chavez’s wife Helen. Yancey Arias and Rosario Dawson portray Gilbert Padilla and Dolores Huerta, respectively, and Darion Basco is labor leader Larry Itliong. Several groups have come out against director Diego Luna’s exclusion of casting significant personalities in the real Chavez’s life such as Cesar’s mentor, Community Service Organization founder Fred Ross and Jerry Cohen, leader of the United Farm Workers (UFW) legal team.
Accurate presentation of real life events is not a strong point in “Cesar Chavez.” Luna omitted and altered many historical incidents and went beyond artistic license, a result, perhaps, of his insufficient knowledge of what identity politics is in the U.S. Watch “Cesar Chavez” on movie2k, a website where you can download and watch other movies, but not before reading his bio on wikipedia. Only then can a viewer understand why the creation of a hero should not come at the expense of an entire social movement’s inaccurate depiction.
Director Roger Michell’s “Le Week-End” is all about love about to go over the edge and on the rocks between seniors. People who dismiss a love story between seniors will never know the pitfalls to avoid if they don’t see films like “Le Week-End” when they are younger. This insightful film is about a couple married for 30 years who returns to spend a weekend in Paris, unaware that the reality of their marriage has been already in name only.
Jim Broadbent is Nick Burrows, a retired university philosophy professor and Lindsay Duncan is Nick’s wife Meg, a school teacher, and together, Broadbent and Duncan bring life to this couple who believes reenacting a 30-year-old Parisian honeymoon will be the anchor that will halt the drifting ship that their marriage has become.
“Le Week-End” is not a film suitable only for your parents or grandparents. Those below 60 should see it to start their learning process early to realize that love is actually, for all intents and purposes, a matter of will and not emotion as we know love to be. Watch free movies online like “Le Week-End” and have an insight on how helpless loneliness is for older people; in fact, younger people can learn all about loneliness from “Le Week-End,” too.
A film about the Biblical Great Deluge would have been quite the cinematic experience but no, we had to get Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, the “least biblical” (according to him) of biblical films with “artistic license.” Least biblical here means we see a man transformed from sacrificing animals as burnt offerings to his Creator to one who will save them by making sure no humans would ever reproduce again. The artistic license is ridiculous as well; the offspring of human females and fallen angels – the Nephilim – are portrayed in “Noah” as rock monsters protective of humans, specifically Noah and his brood, are redeemed and beamed upwards to heaven.
God’s wrath in almost all biblical interpretations is the result of many sins such as idolatry, immorality, blasphemy, adultery, and murder (which Noah was willing to do later in the movie). In “Noah,” God gets angry because there is harvesting of lumber, flower-picking, animal meat-eating and “zohar” mining. What?! The titular character “Noah” is Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly is Noah’s wife Naameh, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Noah’s grandfather Methusaleh, Emma Watson as Noah’s daughter-in-law Ila, and Ray Winstone as antagonist Tubal-Cain. Even the characters were portrayed in nonsensical fashion: Methusaleh drugs Noah so he, Noah, can get visions from God; he also cures Ila’s apparent barrenness by spiking her libido (Ila here has twin daughters). Tubal-Cain even has a gun, albeit the primitive model.
If you don’t mind watching a dangerous extremist who loses his marbles by thinking that God wants the earth wiped out of human inhabitants because they hunt and cut down trees, go watch free movies online for “Noah.” Sure, the Christians amongst us will rant and rage but even atheists will find this movie a little too discomforting. Really now, killing newly-born babies because they might grow up actually liking barbecued ostrich and take to wearing crocodile leather?
