Am fed up hearing people casually talking about their latest pirate copy, don't they realise they are killing the film industry. It is a crime and makes my blood boil, but if i mention this they tell me to take a chill pill Grrrrrrrrrr!!!! Went to the pics with my kids this week and they were blown away by how cool the whole experience was.

BRB - renewing my rapidshare

I download, but i rent buy and go cinema too
#2
i did 30 quids it cost me my missis and 2 kids then they wanted sweets thats why we like pirates
#3
I use Lovefilm but have been advised to try Blockbuster. I do watch the odd copy if I really want to see it and won't be able to get to the pictures. I do agree with you though. :thumbsup:

i wait till they cheap enough to buy, dont do cinemas or rent

Yeah but you get what you pay for. Its hardly a movie, when you hear people coughing, and see people walking across the screen. Not to mention the poor quality audio.

Going to the cinema is hardly a bargain anyway though.

I love going to the cinema! Don't do pirate copies.
#7
I don't know, are you?
And just how well do you know you?
#8
I go to the IMAX as it's awesome and occasionally if there's something i'm desperate to see, but in general it's download all the way.

That said, if I really like the movie I'll buy the blu-ray so the film industry probably get their moneys worth from me.
#9
vey rarely go the cinema and watch the latest films before tey are out on dvd..no point in waiting

and yeah i buy the films i like on blu ray too

Yeah!! love this comment cos i love the cinema too. I love the smell of the popcorn, the ads, the film trailers and watching the film on big screen, i become totally absorbed. My mum took me to see all the disney classics at the cinema and i loved it then too. seats are more comfy now though!!

We don't d/l much,infact i don't d/l at all,my partner does a little,usually though we watch what we want when it comes on Sky Movies,thats flipping dear,I think Sky waste of cash.

Anyway my kids are infact going to the cinema for the 1st time ever tomorrow night.We going catch a train,and I'm going go shopping,and the kids and their Dad going need get a taxi to the cinema cos it's way far out.

In all,it was about £26 online booking for 1 adult 2 children, for Ice Age 3,it's 3D apparantly,and then it be train fare which will be about £10,I'm not even counting my travel on and then 2 taxis which be £5 there,£5 back,it's crazy amount almost £50 for them to go.

the rip off merchents like cineworld and oden are the real pirates £8 a seat £30-£40 to go with me kids and girlfreind popcorn and a drink .if it was £10 a family ticket i would go and not feel the need to watch pirate dvds. RIP OFF BRITIAN ONCE AGAIN .

Kinda agree....

That said, my IMAX charges £2.20 or somthing for a large popcorn, the cineworld charges £4.10.


FOUR POUNDS TEN!!!


No, I don't have to buy it but it's still utterly taking the hiss...

hey they worth it,but why things so dear?

I said to my partner,strictly no buying no drinks etc in there either,it's Cineworld,dunno how pricey they are but there always a debate on here how dear the cinema treats are.

I just forked out about £150 earlier this evening for tickets and Travelodge for me and the kids to see Walking with Dinosaurs. I'll have travel and meal out to pay for yet.
#17
I download and go cinema as a treat, Never rent anymore.
#18

You just need to download better quality movies :) CAMs are terrible, TS is bareable if you really wanna see the film but just wait for DVD Screener/R5

I download movies all the time, I also go to the movies 1-2 times a month (on wednesdays) depending on what has been released.

I rent, i go to the cinema every week and i buy loads when they get a bit cheaper but i can understand people downloading as the cinema is not cheap for families but i do download tv watch it once then buy the boxsets when they go a bit cheaper too
#30
I love going to the pictures, just cant afford it that often @ £7.50 a pop plusthe popcorn, plus the drink, maybe some sweets...oh, yeah and plus the missus,
#31
I don't rent dvd's, I've got one of those cineworld cards that lets you into as many films as you like for about £13 a month, see all the films I want to that way.

Not into downloading movies, it isn't quite the same watching a movie on a laptop!!!
#32
I have my own cinema at home, and download HD films, excellent quality audio and picture, I don't rent just buy.

They've changed that now, it's all about how your contributions help the film industry, as opposed to knock off nigel harming it.......

Either way, pirated movies are dire, think the last one I watched was snakes on a plane. Nothing wrong with the recording quality right enough.....
#35
I download TV but not really movies as I prefer having the DVD on the shelf as it's too easy to just delete the film to save space.

Cinema wise I go for most of the big films as my younger brother works at the local multiplex so I get free tickets. :thumbsup:

When was the last time you watched a pirate movie, 1982?
These days the audio and video are damn near DVD quality. :thumbsup:

Shame the actual films are pretty crap these days though. Anyone else really disappointed in Angels & Demons?

Lol'ing at the idea of low-quality pirate copies. Me, I do only 720 or 1080 BluRay rips that I watch on my 40" Samsung. Quality is fantastic. I sometimes pause it, just so I can admire how crisp and sharp everything is. With my O2 broadband connection, it takes as little as 30 minutes to download a 4.5GB movie, so it's amazingly convenient too.

As for killing the movie industry, well, listen to this:



Yes. That was my complete disinterest summed up in four blank lines. Sod 'em. I paid them £20 for a DVD enough times. It's great that they're knocking the prices down now, but if they'd done that eight years ago (and remember, £20 8 years ago is a lot more than £20 is now), I mightn't have taken to piracy with such enthusiasm when it became possible. The fact that they didn't means that they've only got temselves to blame for me and my pirating ways.

that was ET on VHS in the 80's...slightly different now

I like to kill the film industry on a day to day basis, but then put a bit back by being ripped off by the local cinema now and again.

Hope this helps.

:lol:

Apparently, The dark knight...
Biggest grossing box office.
Most downloaded film of the last year.
Best selling on DVD too.

Even I bought it, downloaded it too obviously. Quality sells, **** stays on the shelf to gather dust. When will the movie industry take that on board and see where the real blame lies? Thinking never.
