Honestly I thought it was pretty good. Ramob'ish. Enjoyable and yet funny.

I heard of this movie but I haven't seen it. Did they do a good job of making Silverster Stallone look alive?

Ha! $5-$10/month will get you a usenet provider account with 800+ days of retention and an encrypted connection. You'll max your connection speed as well.

Torrents are ass, plain and simple. It's a no brainer really.

Gee, I didn't know that paying for a service gets you better results. Of course it will. But it is not like I, or majority of file downloaders, want to pay $60+ a year when free alternatives exists. And of those free alternatives, sites like hotfile, rapidshare, and megaupload gives horrible speeds and wait times compared to most torrents. Then again, you get what you pay for.

If you are looking for an old file, then torrents can be hassle compared to file sites or usenet that have longer download life. I hardly have any trouble finding what I want when it comes to newly released content uploaded by trusted sources and abundant number of seeders to max out my connection. For my purposes, it is more than sufficient and I would rather spend the money elsewhere.

It's amazing what they can clean up with digital effects. I actually had thought Stallone was dead so it was a surprise to see a preview for that film several months ago. You just wonder when they'll start resurrecting dead famous actors with digital skin wraps on other no-name actors like in Avatar.

Well, I checked around and one of my buddies uses a Usenet thing called
Astraweb. He let me check it out... it's worthless. I don't see how he's
paying a monthly fee to get encrypted RAR files with the wrong or no
password information, or just mislabled and trojan-ridden files. It's no
wonder people stick with Torrents.

No, they will never learn... when will they just ditch the lawsuits and start implementing a system with torrents... release bad copies of it, if a person likes it, they'll end up getting a hard copy that has far superior quality. Get it? Pretty simple entertainment industry.

It's the lawyers driving these new lawsuits, not the industry. Most of the lawsuits are coming from porn distributors and the rest are studios that aren't MPAA members.

The lawyers are just looking for easy money and it looks like they're going to get it.

I thought this about Music. If I try a CD or even singles and like the songs I've heard. I go buy a hard copy or pay the $10 on iTunes to OWN the songs. I just don't see the MPAA/Lawyers/RIAA understanding that or letting that be the case.

You know, i blame the stupid sense of entitlement these dim bulbs have, and yes, now they have a lawsuit to go with the download. Serves them right, hey, considering dvd rentals are like $1 these days.

Oh...you're being serious. $10 says you didn't even bother to learn how usenet even works. Another $10 says you probably have no idea what NZB files are. Tack on another $10 simply because only the uneducated bother with passworded files.

You can pay me through PayPal. I don't accept money orders.
