Chairpotato's "Night at the Movies!"

Additions and corrections to "Movies on YouTube", sorted by date added

Watch along with me, my weekday showings of movies I'm adding to my articles "Movies on YouTube", sorted by date of addition. This way you can share my bizarrely random approach to movie watching, and also be assured that the links still work at least for the day I'm showing them.

Below, where the film title is underlined simply click on it, and you will be able to watch it in full via a playlist, or a linked detail page.  Where the title is not underlined, the parts of the movie are individually linked directly underneath it.

Suggestions from my readers have caused me to create this article showing movies I've recently added to my articles "Movies on YouTube", sorted by date of addition.  This article is perhaps further necessitated by full movies appearing and disappearing from YouTube.  When my readers view my genre lists, some links are now dead. So, in contrast to that, the films listed here you can be at least assured existed on YouTube on the date I linked them.

I like to mix my movies around so as to provide a little "something for everyone" each night.  A little comedy, a little drama, a little horror or sci-fi or fantasy or whatever.  Make requests, who knows I might listen!
