We did go through a list on my husbands computer, and it seems all their proxies are down too.. they are shut pretty good.. I guess what I accessed was one page that had some articles, but nothing else was available..

Time for Torrent Freak I guess!

actually same here. but when i use some of the piratebay proxy on Tor half hour a go, some of them go "automatically" to kickass web site... the guys know what they are doing but many users do not. all is working but You just need to know the way how to think on internet... Tor is always big and good and independent help.

Now that you think of it.... Giving this type of publicity for torrenting only hurts the industry more. Awesome, huh?

people will always go to the movies.
movies will always be made
piracy will always be there.....

im not really a believer that sharing hurts the industry. i dont honestly care to debate the points of it anymore either.
ive heard it all before.

in the end we still see movies being made with 200 million dollar budgets. movies getting returns of hundreds of millions of even a billion dollars just for a theater run. add to that merchandise and dvd/blue ray sales. streaming sales.
thats money by the truckload.

movie stars are getting 20 million or more a picture.

seems to me the movie industry is doing just fine.

their financial well being is not my concern. ive heard all the 'but its stealing' crap before too.

obviously my opinion on it is different than people who dont share.....

long live sharing


and yes, nightcrawler is was awesome

Hollywood today is nothing like the Hollywood we've come to know. It has been taking a beating from all sides. Some fault is on the ratings, critics, piracy, and just lack of originality. There are amazing actors and intriguing directors however due to targeting wide demographics and expecting huge payouts at the box office the great actors and directors are forced to follow proper " hollywood" protocol in turn running away great actors and dishing out bull crap just to break even. ( of course even to them is hundreds of millions hahahha) Due to these ramifications the indie film industry has picked up speed and in my humble opinion wields a finer product but more difficult to obtain so fans must turn to a torrent site. I'm not trying to argue, I feel it should be taken into perspective that Hollywood is running on fumes... Needs another John Wayne.

Has anyone with decent taste seen the inside of a theater lately? I haven't been for over 5 years.... : there's maybe two movies a year worth considering a night out ... And even then the good flicks are just really good copycats of great forgotten movies from 30 years ago.

let's hope its on the path the music industry took....

Let's be honest... Nicholas cage's recent movie, Left Behind, speaks volumes for the state of the american film industry. Sure, we can't put all of Hollywood on some psychotic ozone killing freak's coattails, Cage. If it wasn't for the mindless cattle chasing colorful eyepopping CGI and not giving two flucks about dialogue or plot holes.... Hollywood would look worse then an 80s zombie comedy horror remake.

There was/is still a way to access it even if it's down.

I'm not sure if discussing piracy is allowed on this site though. It's pretty simple really.
