Technology has come a long way in recent years when it comes to streaming full-length feature films to your computer and/or television. While Netflix has a massive user base, Hulu is probably the best free service out there. Got some free time this weekend? They are now carrying two metal gems for free streaming:

Heavy Metal Parking Lot:

Editor's Note: As a new Hulu user myself, I'm not sure what the region restrictions are for these streams. Please let us know in the comments if you're not able to view them from your country.

UPDATE: It seems that these videos on Hulu are only available in the United States. "Heavy Metal In Baghdad" is actually availabe on YouTube; however, it's split across multiple parts. It's definitely worth seeing though. You can start with Part 1 here.

Hulu is US only? That sucks. I loved Heavy Metal In Baghdad. It's just very compelling. Watched it twice even.

It makes sense a lot of their target market is the US with the TV show subscriptions, but for other free content, I figured it would not be restricted. Kinda lame to me. Guess it leaves room in the market for other localized services to take on the same model though.

For the most part in the UK if you want to watch something, then you can watch it for free on that program's site. For example, if I want to watch The I.T. Crowd, I can just go to 4od and watch any episode. Pretty cool.

That was the first time I've seen Heavy Metal Parking Lot, and I gotta say, I don't know what all the fuss is about. I've always heard it was this great metal movie, but it was just a bunch of rednecks screaming. Waste of my time
