You could go to the cinema or buy the movie on DVD or watch movies on TV (this includes Netflix).

If you want to do it on your PC or laptop, you could start with telling more. Such as:
- what's your OS?
- what happens if you try to do view a movie?
- what changed since it last worked?

I forgot one question: what browser are you using. But that isn't so important. The advice anyway would have been to try another browser. On a Windows PC choose from Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. All are free. You might need to install Flash into them if it's a fresh download.

If the problem persists, turn off the hardware accelleration in Flash (it might be necessary to do that in all browsers separately) and try again.

If you are having trouble with that, maybe you should download the latest flash player so that you can watch videos online.
