Nothing because the crap quality.

Where can you legally stream Warrior from?

That Waterworld poster is beautiful!

Nothing today, but I streamed The Cider House Rules yesterday. It's ok...

Watched super8 on blu raySaturday. If you can tell me where I can stream it in 1080p
and 7.1 DTS-HD MA sound then I'll concede the point.

The thread title includes streaming and downloading. You didn't specify which was crap quality, you can easily download in 1080p with 7.1 no problem. As for streaming I'd give it another 2 or 3 years.

Let's just set out the stall here.  If you're reporting on movies that you've streamed from iTunes/Lovefilm/NetflixSky BO or another legitimate provider, then feel free to do so.  If you're boasting about movies that you have downloaded or streamed illegally, then that is a very big no-no and may result in further intervention from moderators, up to and including official warnings or even bans, depending on circumstances.

Spalds, I'm not aware (though would be very happy to be proved wrong) that Warrior is currently being offered up by any of the legitimate providers.  The edit button may prove to be a very good friend.  Just sayin'

Erm, nowhere in the title does it mention illegal dl's or streams and unfortunately there is still a stigma (and a certain amount of snobbery) attached to digital formats. This is an open thread though and its not up to me what other people post and/or what their methods are so I don't know why I'm being grilled (again).

The way I figure this thread is rock solid and future proofed as in 5 -10 years time the majority of film viewing will be purely non-physical, if it isn't already.

Not really. Many people, myself included (for reasons you were schooled on the last time this subject popped up) object to illegal means of digital downloading from an ethical perspective. It's nothing to do with snobbery.

I've posted at length my views on the digitally distributed future of the entertainment industry; most recently here.

Anyone who is interested in the problems of long term digital archiving could do worse than read this and this.

You have to register to download them, but it is free and they are a sobering read.

Digital distribution will take over one day. But until the quality is on a par with packaged media, and while packaged media is still available, I'll stick to the physical option for the bulk of my consumption.

The place it makes most sense is as a replacement for the rental market, and both Lovefilm and now Netflix are good services if all you want to do is watch movies with as little hassle as possible.

If what you want is to view your movies in the best available quality then all digital services have a long way to go. If wanting the best available quality is snobbery then so be it: I am a snob.

Schooled? You really have an inflated opinion of yourself don't you Adam? And if you had bothered to read this thread properly you would know full well I never meant illegal downloading.

You are aware that legal downloads exist right or do you need schooling on the matter?

Not really. To be perfectly honest though, it is hard not to feel like the intellectual superior when a genuine point is greeted by personal attack.

I did, and assumed your dodging of explaining where you legally watched Warrior over the weekend followed by your overly defensive response to the mods was your way of admitting that you watched it illegally.

You know what? Bollocks to this, I'm not letting Adam or anyone else drag another good thread off topic by page 1.

So tonight I'm either watching TTSS or Nixon. Although I'm also considering Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

You're good at running away from a debate, I'll give you that.

Why not just explain where you watched Warrior? That would settle everything that the mods have taken issue with? The more you dodge the issue the more you're making it look as though you've done something wrong.

Arguments are fun and all but films are way better...

I Lovefilm'd this bad boy on my Xbox...



Adkins and JCVD was always going to be fun. Not quite Univeral Soldier Regeneration but another solid straight to DVD action flick.

I've streamed quite a few films lately through Lovefilm on the Xbox:

Wheels on Meals (and there's a bunch more Jackie Chan films on there)
A bunch of Dario Argento films.
The Great Flamarion (via the Youtube app)
Eden Lake
Year One
Zombieland
Death Race 2000
Moon

Some have been poor quality especially when you've got fast movement which takes a bit of a toll, but others have been nearly indistinguishable from DVD quality. When Lovefilm first started streaming films had those horrible jagged edges, it's certainly improved since then even though my internet connection is the same.

Now those jackie chan films may be worth checking out. Not available on Blu ray and generally poor picture and sound quality. This may be the best they have ever looked.

Watched this on Netflix this morning, really enjoyed it. Its a lot of fun with some inventive deaths and a great premise.

Not wanting to stoke the fires here, but can I ask what is the difference between this thread and people posting in US speed TV threads? I know for a fact that mods post in those threads, often talking about American aunts.

Not judging, just wondering.

Indeed - I'd checked Sky (and it wasn't available at that time), Netflix, Lovefilm etc before asking my original question and wondered as I hadn't been able to find it anywhere
