The Trial of The Chicago 7 - Free to Watch for 48 Hours @ YouTube

The movie can be watched from 7pm AEDT.

Netflix’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be available for free on its YouTube channel for 48 hours, starting on Friday, February 19th, at 12AM PT, according to a blog post from the company (via The Wrap). Writer and director Aaron Sorkin said the movie is being shown for free to “commemorate the anniversary of the verdict in this historic trial,” and he praised the people depicted in the movie as “the real patriots who inspired a generation — actually, generations.”

The film centers on the eight Vietnam war protestors who were charged with inciting a riot and conspiracy for demonstrating during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Sorkin is no stranger to political subject matter, notably working on The West Wing and A Few Good Men, even though he’s perhaps better known for films like The Social Network and Steve Jobs.

        It is a joke associated with “The Madness of King George”.

        Bad social media campaigns; they failed to go viral.

          Ah what a shame. I've heard big rumblings though about covid 21 coming out of South Africa. Watch this space!

    Good deal, but I don’t know if I could watch it for 48 hours.

      you should try, a true ozbargainer will

      try watching The Staircase, you'll love it.

      •  

        Lol, I got suckered so hard into watching it just to finish it.

        •  

          soon you'll memorise the name of David Rudolf or perhaps you would have by now lol

    Should check out Mangrove ( directed by Steve Mcqueen) is another great movie . Similar to Chicago 7.

    I though everyone has Netflix's and even though there for a while I'm not watching it .

      Netflix is too expensive for a 4k stream. It’s approaching foxtel levels of expense.

      •  

        Shameless plug for Amazon prime video - $6 p/m with 4k!

    •  

      Well I don't know why anyone (on here anyway) would pay for Netflix. HollowWood/movies are bad enough without paying them for the brainwashing. Anyone wishing to learn how to pay $0 in under 15 minutes is welcome to PM me.

    I'd rather watch something with more modern subject matter. Like the movie based on senile Joe's inappropriate showering habits with female relatives called: "Hard Candy".

      ?
      ok weirdo

      So you already have the Trump pee tape on continuous loop then?

        Can't own something that doesn't exist. His daughter's diary does though.

        •  

          You say it doesn’t exist but there is pretty good information it does. It is, certainly, in keeping with the man. He, certainly, has a history of inappropriate behaviour with young women. There is also footage of him making improper suggestions about his own daughter.

            @try2bhelpful: Nonsense. The guy has literal gold as wallpaper. (As if he's going to want girls urinating.) You really need to widen your facts source because there's ample evidence now it was 100% fantasy, who fabricated it, and even who paid for it.

            •  

              @Faulty P xel: Given what else Trump is interested in this wouldn’t surprise me at all. Trump was awfully friendly with the Russians.

              •  

                @try2bhelpful: LOL. You poor mind control victim. Just because they say it, and say it, and say it… doesn't make evidence magically appear. That's called brainwashing, not reality.

                •  

                  @Faulty P xel: Speaking of brainwashing. You want to explain the followers of Donald Trump and their insistence that the election was “stolen” despite the over 50 court cases showing their was no systematic fraud. The storming of the Capitol building that will result in them doing some serious time. The QAnon followers who are just batshit crazy. That the pee tapes being likely is not out of the question. Especially when you look at what Trump has said, repeatedly, over the years. It is the little Trumpettes that are the brainwashed fools.

                  •  

                    @try2bhelpful: I haven't read past the first line because perhaps you should explain to yourself, they've actually won about two-thirds of those court challenges. But of course you haven't read or that right, because again, you're listening to the same aforementioned sources who brainwash others as much as they are brainwashed themselves.

                    Since personal bias rules supreme with you rather than objective fact, I'm done.

                    •  

                      @Faulty P xel: Trump didn’t prove corruption with any of the court cases. Trump lost the election then incited the attack on the Capitol. I don’t expect you to read the truth because you aren’t interested in it.

                      •  

                        @try2bhelpful: In fact, according to Wikipedia.

                        “After the 2020 United States presidential election, the campaign for incumbent President Donald Trump and others filed and lost 86 lawsuits[1][2][3][4][5][6] contesting election processes, vote counting, and the vote certification process in multiple states, including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.[7]“

                        You want to cite some “proof” on the court cases they “won”.

    It's a bit woke, portraying imperfect humans as modern day saints who could do no wrong. Overall, a very good movie. Very well made. If you liked director Aaron Sorkin's The Social Network, you might like this movie.

    Great way to not support Netflix as well.

    Really helps you see how US Government "Swamp" Creatures operate (nailing people that they don't like on trumped-up charges).

    Just downloaded it from you tube to watch later on. Thanks OP.
