Looks like things are getting hot and heavy. VPNs are no longer a luxury in many countries now. :oops:

I don't really understand people down/uploading with Torrent to watch movies in a really bad quality. First, you can get busted cause of Torrent, u dont just download, you are sharing as well. Second - Im a nerd, I love to enjoy a really good movie. For that, I wait until I can stream it, in a perfect quality and an awesome sound.

For that - really good news that filmmakers are targeting this piracy.

That was the whole point of the movie groups. In the day I knew some people who were absolutely brilliant at recoding. We had our connections for high quality sources. Cams and Telesyncs were labeled as such and were released for "those who couldn't wait".
I guess you missed that bus or you must be really young.

still, in the days of 2022, it's abundant.
you have so many movies 2 watch, and to wait for a new one...there's no need for it anymore.
especially on torrent. that's kinda suicide IF you want to download a movie.

Not sure what you are talking about. I can dl full blu-ray movies and burn them to disc with full DTS surround and watch them on my blu-ray player. There are always a variety of quality rips from 480p to 4k on the site I use, so no lack of quality options.
you can get busted cause of Torrent
Sure you can, if you don't take proper precautions. But thats on you.
I wait until I can stream it,
Glad you can afford all those pay services, but some of us can't afford to pay Amazon, Netflix, Apple etc. just to watch one or two movies a month.

Well, not affording 10 bucks is really strange. And if u wanna watch "one or two movies", then one streamer would be enough.

And again - about 10 or 13 bucks, that's not really a big sum.

Well, at least in my opinion the best resolution movies are on torrents.

There's not even a need to download when you can just go to those pirate sites to watch for free.
True, stream hosters are everywhere...
