Do what I suggested. Get a rapidshare account (or MU, MS) and use one of the many, many forums. No need to seed anything.

I'll check out rapid share but I am not sure if I want to spend money on it unless i get my moneys worth

Does retail mean 1080p here?

What I am trying to say is, why buy what you can obtain for free, often before retail release. This includes 1080p, yes.

Well, actually I just buy when I get a big discount and I like having menus and stuff for my movies. Along with collectors and awesome packaging. In a few years I will have a pretty nice library .

About the 1080p comment, if you have the whole home theater system, a 1080p movie with Dolby True HD sound should make around 30GB, that's the max download I have every month so I won't go there

30 GB a month max? You are getting ripped off. I have over 3x that, and a 15mbit connection no less. I rarely come in under my limit either.

You can get full dvds, complete with everything quite often as well.

Another vote for eztv.it.

I prefer DVDs for the reasons already stated. If it's something I'll likely watch many times I like having it, with cover-art, subtitles, menus, special features -- the works. Yes, I know I can d/l a full DVD, print out the covers, get the subtitles and so on, but why bother? It's not a necessity, so if I can't afford $20-25 (or less for older ones) then I won't bother. What I use bittorrent for is when I miss recording a TV show -- which happens too frequently with Rogers.

Actually, now that I'm in this threa, maybe I can rant about something else:

The latest Potter film in a 3-pack (BR, DVD, digital copy) is $16 at Amazon.com. Over at Amazon.ca I can pay $27 for a two-pack (BR and digital copy -- no DVD). The dollar is about 96 cents. Plus Amazon.com shoppers mostly will not pay a sales tax.

I guess that's the cost of free medicare. That, and waiting 6 hours in the emergency room.

You need the Grease Monkey add-on for Firefox for some reason. With that installed you can then find whatever movie you want, choose a source download location, then either save it or open it (to stream).

It's $8 for the first item, so the 3-disc pack will run you $(16+8)/.96 = $25. Th 2-disc pack at Amazon.ca costs more than that, plus I don't believe shipping is free (you have to get to $39?) and you'll be dinged for GST/PST.

And if you want to save a tiny bit on shipping and make *sure* you pay no GST/PST or brokerage fees, then have it shipped to a friend/relative in the US (run it up so you get free sipping) and have them send the package to you. It'll be less than $8. I'm planning on getting the new Trek movie and the afore-mentioned Potter (maybe even OotP, since I don't have that one yet) sent to my sister in Dallas, who can then re-label the package and send it as "gift" to me.
