BitTorrent's Top 10 Movies Pirated Last Week

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 61 comments

Ever wonder what movies people are illegally downloading?

TorrentFreak has released a list of the top 10 most downloaded movies over BitTorrent last week.

Top of the list is Sherlock Holmes, followed by the DVD screener of Daybreakers and the Men Who Stare At Goats in third. Nice to see that Couples Retreat has fallen down to number seven (from fourth place last week). The general news team consensus is that it's pretty awful.

Check out the full list below! Also, let us know which ones you've seen and if we should avoid them; I don't want to have another Couple's Retreat experience again anytime soon. Paying ten bucks to see bad movies just plain hurts.

    The biggest crooks of all are the MPAA and RIAA.

    Pirate the movie, if you like it, buy the DVD. Plain simple, that's what I do with videogames! Which is good, because I will never make the mistake of paying to play "Iron Man", but I did buy both Bioshocks :p

    I fully support efforts of Hulu and youtube video services, hopefully they will bring more media to them and if they start charging for Hulu or if Youtube starts charging for premium tv stations or movies then i will be paying! but until then.... thank you bit torrent! Thank you al gore for inventing the internet...HA

    Think about Avatar, People would pay money to see the movies if they are good, but in most cases, those STUPID MOVIES just rob us. They charged us stealing, can we charge them robbing?

    I never go to the cinema. I have a 50 inch screen at home and popcorn that cost 60 cents. Last time went to the cinema was in 2001 or something and I walked out after 20 minutes. Can you believe Roger Ebert gave Tomb Raider three out of four stars?

    zombie land is frigging awesome. One of my favorites. Which I will buy. Heres the thing. about the "would steal even if it was .25cents." We are tired of paying exhorbant rates for entertainment. Its pay or play with them. They never adjust thier pricing. Blu ray is still outrageous. I know people who used to pirate music left and right. Itunes and amazon comes out, and they buy it now cause its easier than pirating, and cheap enough they can afford it.

    depends on how many times you go to the theatre. Also 20buck there which is cheap for a theater. Than another 30 for blu ray. yep 50 per movie is to expensive.

    I really dont care if people torrent these movies, at the end of the day the best experience for a film is on an huge theatre screen.
    I torrent, I torrent huge amounts of stuff, but mainly TV episodes. I used to do films but after a while you realise that nothing can compare to the silver screen.

    Gotta love the fact that any comment that speaks negatively of piracy on Tom's is rated down...
