    Out of all those movies, The Dark Knight, The Departed and Inception are the only three I would consider truly good movies. There are a bunch of OK ones and Avatarded is not one of them.

    Kick Ass is a damn good movie if you ask me, so is The Hangover (assuming they mean the first movie). Not on the same par as The Dark Knight mind you, but still.

    Makes sense, the most popular movies are always the most pirated.

    Not a fan of most of that top ten either, only Inception, Kick Ass and Dark Knight that i liked.

    I liked it a lot. Especially the ending.

    Most of the movies are okay besides Avatar

    Kick Ass was awesome if you saw it in a theater (then again all movies are better when you do).

    Dude, the last few years, the movie industry has been steadily increasing, not decreasing. Last year they had their most profitable year since it's inception....so yeah, piracy is not hurting them.

    21 million wasted downloads...for a ****ty movie.

    Departed was ok, but it was a remake, and i never like remakes, even if it is Scorsese doing them.

    Avatar i also thought was ok, certainly not that great and even the CGI was disappointing to what the hype made out it was going to be like, and to me was in no way deserving of the success it had, but if millions of people enjoyed it, then good for them.

    I'm not really a fan of movies anymore anyway, prefer a good TV show, much easier to accept a bunch of unknown actors as those characters, than big name actors.

    Like people have mentioned.

    These movies are the most pirated, yet still boast such massive profits.

    Just because you pirate something, doesn't mean you're not going to buy it too.

    Greedy people will still want more.

    And what goes to young people who are not working full time likely will not want to spend their money to movie which they have already seen. If that is not the best movie ever or so. So in that case downloading movies will hurt the business.

    Well I can see how it can be entertaining if you have a box of Royal Belugas, put it on mute and play Jefferson Airplane at the same time.
