Ever heard of the triangle of struggle? You’ve got sleep on one end, social life on the other, and success in the middle. They say that at any given point, you could only pick two. That means, if you’re a hard worker who also needs a good night’s rest, your social life would be gone for a toss. But don’t worry! On days when you can’t step out to unwind, there’s always the www to your rescue.
You can access to a host of entertainment right on your screen. And there’s nothing like ending the day with a gripping movie, all cozied up on your couch, right? Moreover, you don’t have to do it alone. Simply call your friends over and you’ll have defeated the triangle theory!
You could always use superlative streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video; but let’s face it, not everyone can afford those pricey monthly subscriptions. So what’s your next best option? Torrents and free movie sites of course! These sites enable free streaming in exchange for watching ads.
But what if you wish to keep a copy of the content to either watch it later at a time of your convenience, keep a collection, or enjoy it on a long-haul flight when there’s no internet? Some of these free websites also allow you to download movies. And, we’ve scoured out the best ones for you which are currently active and working.

How to Download?
While majority of the websites mentioned above provide direct download links under the movie title, there are still a few that don’t. For those website, there are several methods to skirt around the system and download the movie for watching offline. We’ve tried giving you all the possible options so you can select one that suits your situation the best.
- From YouTube: All you have to do is open the video, copy the URL, and paste it onto the “Media URL” section of any YouTube video converter sites such as ClipConcerter.cc. You can select the video quality and have the download link ready within seconds, depending upon the length of the video.
- Using Internet Download Manager: If you’re a Windows PC user then this option is the best for you. Internet Download Manager, or IDM, let’s you manage all your downloads in one place. Furthermore, it facilitates extremely fast downloading, and supports various web browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, and more.
- Using Bittorrent: This is essential for any of the torrent sites listed above. Once you have installed a Bittorrent client, all you have to do is get a magnet link or download the torrent file and open it using the Bittorrent client; and voila! The download will begin. You can pause and resume as per your convenience.
- Using Video Downloader Professional Extension: Irrespective of which device you choose to watch the movie on, as long as you’re using Google Chrome, you can install the “Video Downloader Professional” extension. Sites like 123movies, where you may not find the download button, especially if you’re using Macbook, this comes handy. All you need to do is enable the extension, start streaming, and click on the green arrow button to the top right corner on Chrome. Once it detects the video, you can download the file directly.

Top 50 Best Free Movie Download Sites 2018
The original MVP of the torrent world, YIFY, may have ceased to exist. However, thanks to a huge fan following, YTG.am, a YIFY clone was created and is still up and running. If quality is your main concern, this site will not disappoint you. YTS is essentially a torrent site that has the latest as well as the fairly old movies (Hollywood), in high video quality (up to 1080p). The homepage displays the popular downloads, recently added torrents, and the upcoming YIFY movies. You could also browse movies as per genre, quality, rating, or title, using the tab of the same heading to the top right corner of the homepage. As of today, this site contains over 6000 movie titles!
Its one of our personal favorites due to three main factors –
1. A very clean and easy-to-use interface that also looks awesome.
2. Small file size but great video quality.
3. You’ll find all the latest and popular titles.
MyDownloadTube is quite a hit amongst regular movie watchers and understandably so. It has an extremely simple interface that doesn’t score extra points for design but it does for user-friendliness. The homepage has 3 main navigational tabs namely, Movies, Games, and Genres. You can find movies from both Hollywood and Bollywood. Aside from that, they also have selected Arabic films, and animated titles. What’s more? If you’re also a TV buff, this site offers TV series like Supernatural, The X-Files, The Walking Dead, and Vikings. To boot, you can also get games such as Battlefield 4, Prince of Persia, Minecraft, and Need for Speed for your PC, android, or iOS device. The site offers various methods of downloading including torrent files and direct download links, so you can choose whatever suits you the best.
Recently, we have also shared mobile movie download sites.
Fmovies has to be our second personal favorite after YTS by virtue of its sophisticated interface and a massive movie library. The top bar features tabs such as “Genres”, “Country”, “Featured”, “Movies”, “TV Series”, “Top IMDB”, and “A-Z List”, making it very easy to search for content. Undoubtedly, it is one of the best site to download Hollywood movies. As you scroll down, you’ll find more sub-categories like Features Movies, Top Today, Top IMDB, etc. Each thumbnail displays information such as the resolution in which the movie is available, release year, IMDB rating, genre, and a brief storyline. Under countries, it includes movies from India (Hindi), France, Russia, South Korea, China, Japan, Sweden, USA, UK, Germany, Italy, and Hong Kong so you can watch movies in several languages. Aside from movies, you can watch some of the latest and most popular TV shows like Star Trek: Discovery, Altered Carbon, The Big Bang Theory, and Shark Tank. It is my personal favourite for streaming movies too.
Divx Crawler has been around since a while. This website’s popularity rests on the fact that it offers a wide gamut of Hollywood movie titles with a super easy downloading format. The main page lists down content in a “desk” format written in a clear font with details such as the recommended player, movie format, movie size, and a brief plot. You can scroll down to find all the latest or popular movies or you could browse by sub-categories like “Latest Movies”, “Movies Page 2”, “Movies Page 3”, and “Quality Links”. Aside from movies, you can also download/stream music videos and software. Downloading a movie is as easy as right-clicking the “Download” button and pressing “Save link as”. If budget isn’t much of a restriction, you must check out Divx’s membership plan. It is priced at $12 (one-time payment), and includes benefits like access to all movies, subtitles, faster download speed, unlimited downloads, access to TV shows being aired currently, and 24/7 customer support.
If you’re more of a phone user and prefer to watch movies on your phone, on the move, then this site is for you. As the name suggests, 300MB Movies enables you to download full-length movies in as little as 300MB file size. You’ll find an extensive range of feature films from Hollywood, Bollywood, Gujarat, Punjab, and South India. Discovering titles is fairly easy since the site has laid out well-curated categories like 1080p movies, 300mb movies, 400mb, 700mb movies, 720p Blu Ray Movies, Bengali Movies, Bollywood Movies, Cartoon movies, Hindi Dubbed movies, Marathi Movie, Punjabi movies, Tamil movies, Telugu movies, Kannada movies, Hollywood movies, Dual audio, and also, English & regional TV shows like Zee Gold Awards, and WWE Smackdown. For your convenience, it also has a separate instructional section on “How to Download” the content.
Another great torrent site, 1337x works on the same lines as YTS, except, it offers a legion of other media besides movies which includes music, games, television, apps, anime, and documentaries. We absolutely love its interface because of how attractive and minimal it looks. All the categories are displayed in the form of big icons under the search bar. You could either just type out the movie title or choose a category from the bottom of the page. When you click on “Movies”, it shows a page with an entire list of movies under sub-categories like “Most popular movie torrents in last 24 hours”, “Popular this week”, “Trending today”, and “Top 100 this month”. You’ll find even the most recent releases on this site. All you’ll need is a Bittorrent client.
This is another website that offers full-length movies in 300MB sized files without compromising on quality. If you’re looking to watch the movie on your phone, you can even get titles in 100MB file size. Though they do have a few English movies, you’ll mostly find Bollywood, Dual Audio & Dubbed, Punjabi movies, and South Indian movies on the platform. So if you’re someone who loves watching regional content or prefers to watch Hollywood movies dubbed in Hindi, you may want to give this site a try. Additionally, you can also download music, PC games, PC software, Android games, and TV series.
Bob movies boasts of an excellent collection of full-length movies including titles which are still running in the theaters. The website is backed by an incredibly well-laid out and simple-to-use interface with sub-categories like “Suggested Movies”, and “Latest Movies” on the homepage. To the left, you’ll find even more categories such as Cinema Movies, Coming Soon, Movies 2017, Movies 2018, Top IMDB, and Cartoons; this will surely enhance your browsing experience. The movies are displayed in rows with clear thumbnails. When simply streaming, the media player allows you to adjust the video quality depending upon your internet connection. The best part? Most of the movies are available in HD quality.
Surprised? Well, there are quite a few channels on YouTube that upload good quality public domain movies in high resolution. Public domain movies are basically those titles which aren’t copyrighted by any individual or firm so you can access them for free, without any legal hassles. You’ll find movies from Hollywood (English), Bollywood (Hindu), Pollywood (Punjabi), and perhaps even Tollywood (Tamil). Few of the most popular channels are Maverick Entertainment, The Paramount Vault, Timeless Classic Movies, and Viewster. Aside from this, you’ll also find plenty of documentaries including the much-recommended “The End of Poverty”. To search for free movies available, you could try typing in the title or straight away checkout the aforementioned channels. The only downside is that you may not get the latest movies so if you’re into classics or exploring movies, YouTube will suffice.
Despite sporting a slightly crowded navigational bar, HD Movies Point does the job quite well. You could choose movies from a range of genres like Action, Adventure, Romance, Horror, Thriller, Comedy, Drama, and Fantasy. Apart from Hollywood movies, you can also get access to a host of Bollywood, Telugu, Tamil, and even Pakistani movies. What’s awesome is that the movies are available in 1080p resolution. Downloading a movie on this site is as easy as on Divx Crawler. Once you’ve selected a title, scroll all the way down to the bottom, and click on Download Now, you’ll be prompted to save the file and the movie will start downloading automatically.
Moviewatcher has the same modus operandi as Fmovies, in that it allows you to stream as well as download content. The layout is also quite comparable with the navigational bar comprising of categories like Genres, Years, Most Popular, New Movies, and TV Series. If you scroll down the homepage further, you’ll find more categories like “Coming Soon”, “Popular Movies”, “New TV Series”, etc. The only difference? This website does not host content from various countries so you’ll mostly find only Hollwood titles, albeit, all the latest ones. When you click on a title, it’ll display details such as the storyline, genre, release year, duration, and IMDB rating, to the left side. You’ll see two buttons, one to stream and one to download so you can choose either depending upon what you prefer. Most of the movies are available in HD can be downloaded onto your PCs as well as mobile devices.
Rarbg.to is yet another torrent site that contains all types of content including movies, TV shows, music, software, and games. If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop for all your entertainment needs, then such torrent websites should be your top choice. The only thing that we didn’t like much is the browsing experience. There aren’t any sub-categories to filter content as per your liking. So you either have to scroll to check if you like anything or type in the title in the search bar. Once you’ve opened up the movie you wish to download, you’ll find the torrent link right at the top so all you’ll require is a Bittorrent client.
123movies is a very popular movie streaming service that was launched many years ago. It has a very pleasant looking design backed by an efficient browsing system. To the top of the homepage, you’ll find tabs like Genre, Country, TV Shows, Movies, and Episodes. If you scroll down, you’ll see more categories like Suggestion (Top rating, most popular, featured, Top IMDB, etc.), Latest Movies, and Latest TV shows; again, quite similar to Fmovies. Downloading is very simple too, but we’ll talk about that in detail in our next section.
At the outset, this website might appear to be slightly chaotic since all the text is crammed onto its fixed (and narrow) web layout. However, once you start using it, you’ll realize that the categories, contributing to all the text, is what makes browsing a breeze on this website. The top bar offers options such as Hollywood, Hindi, Dubbed, and Other. Aside from Bollywood and Hollywood titles, you’ll get access to Punjabi, South Indian, and Pakistani movies. As you scroll down, you’ll see even more filters to the right side of the page; these include genres, release year, and quality. The main page has content sorted into other sub-categories like Content Recently Added, HD Movies, Cinema Movies, and Upcoming Movies. There’s also a slider above, displaying all the new releases.
MKVCinemas is a must try if you love watching South Indian movies or prefer English movies dubbed in English. You can also download a host of Bollywood and Hollywood movies in really small file sizes (300MB). Additionally, you can also get your hands on several regional movies and TV shows in many different languages like Gujarati, Marathi, Malayalam, and even Korean! The top navigational bar shows all of these options so you don’t have to waste your time scanning through the entire index. You’ll see that the content is further organized under sub-categories such as Latest Movies and Genres including Action, Horror, Romance, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Musical, and Drama. This website is best suited if you’re going to use your mobile device to watch the movies. For PC (or big screen) users, it may not be the best option.
HD Popcorns offers a wide array of Hollywood movies, including the most recent releases; and as the website name suggests, most of the content is available for download in HD. What we loved about this site is how neat and simple the interface is. There’s a search box located right at the top so if you’re looking for something specific, simply key in the title. Alternatively, you can search for movies on basis of genre, ratings, and qualities and even scroll down to check out the latest additions to the library. Once you’ve picked a title, you can choose the video quality and hit the download button.
Though we’ve placed this site right at the end of our list, it is certainly not any less in terms of content and quality. The homepage shows movies in the form of large and clear thumbnails with a download button right below it. To the right, you’ll find a horde of categories t like 2017 Movies, Adventure, Comedy, Biography, Dual audio, English movies, Romance, War, and Western, to narrow down your search further. Aside from Hollywood movies, you’ll also find many popular Bollywood titles in the top navigational bar.
All the above websites are functional and allow you to download movies. However, its important to remember that these sites are illegal so one must use a reliable VPN service such as Express VPN. Also, since these websites offer content for free, your experience could be interrupted with several ads and pop-ups. Lastly, note that oftentimes the links are found to be broken. In that case, you can always check out another site or try a different server.
