Top Ten Most BitTorrented Movies Last Week

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 21 comments

Oscar winner the Hurt Locker has topped TorrentFreak's weekly list of the most pirated movies on BitTorrent.

It's not surprising that the movie that cleaned up at the Oscars is the most pirated movie in the week after the awards show. The Kathryn Bigelow title jumped up from its number 10 spot in the previous week's listings. Percy Jackson and the Olympians entered the charts at number two while New Moon dropped from number one to number three.

Check out TorrentFreak's full top ten below.

While it's nice to see the Hurt Locker's big Oscar wins help it generate some new interest, remember that it along with several other films on this list are now available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc or are better experienced in theatres.

    "remember that it along with several other films on this list are now available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc or are better experienced in theatres."

    unless they're DVD screeners for theater-run movies, or DVD- or blu-ray rips for disc released movies...

    for myself, I'm gonna buy The Hurt Locker, Ninja Assassin, and The Boondock Saints II on blu-ray....

    The point is that R5/DvdScr's suck, where as a standard DvdRip, or BluRay rip are so incredibly better it's not even comparable.

    Hurt Locker = Garbage. Download if you must but don't buy. Best movie of the year? Pfff, please... Academy should stop the politics already.

    Interesting list. How many of the films are actually good enough to want to watch them?

    I loved Boondock Saints 2. It was a terrible standalone movie, but an awesome tribute to the original. I got drunk watching it and laughed more than I have in a long time.

    Are you guys trying to put the spotlight on me. Yeah, have all of em. I'd appreciate a lil less publication about it though. It's already quickly coming to an end. Don't end it any faster!!!

    Honestly this is a terrible list of movies which I have sadly paid good money (often for 2) to go see in a cinema. Its no wonder these are the most downloaded. A lot of the time it would be a case of "Meh I'll download it to see if it is as bad as I think it will be before I spend money on it."

    1) Even if free, I wouldn't watch all the films on this top 10 list. In fact, I don't see one that I'd pay to see either! However, this is just my personal opinion on the films.

    2) Do you think that films are really better experienced in the theater? Sorry, I like to pause if I want to get a snack, appreciate not having the glow of someone texting two rows in front of me, and the lack of *whisper* *whisper* *Oh no she didn'* *WAAAAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAaaaaaa-WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA* make a film at home so much more enjoyable. If I really want a big screen, I go check out a projector from my college (the perks of an overpriced education). Yeah, don't miss going to a theater at all.

    Sad how people recognize good movies only after they win Oscars.

    Going to a theatre is a better experience?
    You should see my theatre then...
    It's a much better experience staying at home watching the movie...

    R5 is very close to DVD quality. I agree, DVDSrc does not worth it.

    Moreover, I would be very disappointed paying money to watch Legion and Saints. Hurt Locker and Sherlock Holmes were worth $10.
