God Bless The Internet 17:46 - Mar 3 with 3447 viewsCaptain_Sham

I just watched 12 years a Slave, American Hustle and Gravity for nowt. I didn't realise they just balls out put them up there. I had the gravity dvd in my hand in Tescos earlier and put it back. Came home and googled 'Gravity free online'.I am stunned . It begs the question why does anyone buy dvds any more?

Its just a ride.

Indeed, Spotify is slowly hoovering up all the artists who withheld their tunes.

sadly the interweb does not have the atmosphere of the virgin record store in Swansea in 76 though.

besides that piratebay is great.

If you watched them for nothing, two sound answers to your question are: to watch them legally, and because they don't know how.

We watched 12 Years a Slave the other night. Gripping but grim. Not exactly a feelgood film.

Any good then? Sir Alex Ferguson was at the Oscars and said Captain Phillips was the best film he'd seen all year and was disappointed it wasn't nominated.

Come on Sham, if Fergie can do it then surely you can!! I'm in the mood for a good film tonight.

...can recommend American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall St.. Dallas Buyers Club is a must see. Of the current Oscar Cycle, these are the ones (and Gravity) I enjoyed most. 12 yrs is/was brilliant but hard hard work.

...btw, whilst Captain Phillips is a Tom Hanks tour-de-force, the better of his films this year was Saving Mr Banks, the Walt Disney/Mary Poppins/ PL Travers (Emma Thomson) biopic. True,accurate, or not, it REALLY is entertaining

I enjoyed them all in differing degrees and ways. '12 years' was all the more harrowing as it was a true story. Gravity was beautiful to watch but there were some real big asks in the 'suspension of disbelief' required to enjoy this film, not really what I was expecting from a 'science 'film. It was more like " The fast and the furious" meets " Dark Star" and by Dark Star, I mean the last two minutes. American Hustle was dafter than a dodgem full of monkeys and just as hard to follow.
(I think Gravity would have been awesome If she just carried on floating into space for the whole two hours. It could have been a real exploration of loneliness and acceptance and mortality etc. Like Geralds Game, but shes floating in space, not handcuffed to a bed )

It was one of the few films I went to see at the cinema. Definitely a visual film. Looked fantastic in 3D at the cinema. If it's not going to look good on your TV, I'd give it a miss as it's all about the look of the film and not much else.

I've been regularly downloading films on the internet since I had my first 150k "broadband" connection back in 2002 (technically wasn't broadband, though ntl said it was). Back then it took me days to download a film but always meant we'd have a decent new film to watch every weekend. These days it's much quicker to illegally download a film than it would be to nip out to a blockbusters to rent one (well, if they even still exist?!) so yes I agree, god bless the internet!

One of the worst films I've seen recently, although admittedly I watched it on a tv with no 3D. The storyline is non-existant. I'm amazed that it's been nominated for so many awards.

I have watched a quite a few on XBMC over the last couple of weeks. Some I would never have bothered with and certainly wouldn't have bought the dvd but actually enjoyed them. Gravity got turned off as I got bored.

Yeah just got that XBMC - more for sports than anything else as haven't really watched a lot of films in years due to the repetitiveness of Sky Movies but since I got it......

Last 3 nights I have watched

Wolf of Wall St - Very entertaining
Rush - Typical quality from Ron Howard - would recommend to anyone
Pain & Gain - Harmless entertainment

My problem now is choosing what to watch out of the last 3 years of films that I have probably missed
