You know the movie download market is heating up when AOL decides to get into the act. A tipster showed us this site where the ancient AOL walled garden for noobs is beta testing the downloads, offering such gems as Eight Crazy Nights, Can't Hardly Wait, Easy Rider, Flat Liners, and Muppets Take Manhattan. Could they have found any older or shittier movies than this? Not unless they rummaged around my uncle Harry's bottom drawer.

Of course, there's DRM involved in the form of AOL's comically-named "Hi-Q Delivery Manager," and it only works with Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6.0 or 7.0. Hey, you better hurry, because the whole beta experiment ends on Groundhog Day. You wouldn't want to miss out on all those great free movies, now would you?
