I love you for this! I was able to find movies I haven't been able to get anywhere!

How is this legal?

You are watching films that are in theaters that people worked on and expect to be paid for...even if you don't keep a copy I don't see much difference between this and other forms of digital stealing.

I could be wrong.

Maybe I am over-reacting.

The fact that they have such a strange disclaimer at the bottom of the page seems kind of telling though.

It's their issue to be concerned with legalities, not mine. Read revboi's comment, I agree with him.

there's a few others that I use as well...

www.66stage.com and www.movie6.net .

And you can find torrents for most movies nowadays. I found Seven Pounds and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button which I downloaded and they were dvd quality.

Maybe if I worked in the movie industry I'd give a shit, but as long as they keep waving free movies in front of my face, I'm gonna watch em. And I'm gonna keep using limewire as long as it works too. hehe. That's just my opinion :)

The way I look at it, if the music industry tanks and the movie industry goes under from people downloading their music/movies for free, well then let it collapse. It will just start over again and find a new way to survive. It's funny, the same people out there that complain about "digital theft" are the same people that complain that music has gone too corporate, artists are selling out. You can't have both. You can't support the struggling artist, yet complain when we don't hand our money to the record labels. I think we need to just let them go under. Remove the corporation and let everybody be on a level playing field. In the short term, sure, illegally downloading music might hurt the little guy, but in the long run it's only going to help them.

You can see it happening already. Mtv isn't showing videos anymore. Neither is Vh1. Nobody really listens to the radio anymore. People are turning to myspace for their music. They're turning to youtube for their videos. So already the field is leveling out. Before you had Britney Spears all over mtv and now she just has her little youtube and myspace pages to get her music out there and it works. At the same time, you have the little guy that can create his own music and his own video and put it in the same place as the Britneys out there.

It challenges the traditional meaning of marketing. Everyday people now have access to professional audio, video and photo software. You can do just about anything that the major labels can do. And in turn, you just don't see the polished, choreographed, enormous budget videos that you used to from these huge artists. Hell, just watch a Coldplay video. It's just not profitable anymore. It's not as powerful a marketing tool as it was 15 years ago. Musicians are finding other ways to get their music out there and be heard.

Anyway, I digress. I have no idea where that rant came from. haha.
