Scene releases.. in perfect order. Are you getting these from rlslog?

Just returned from the cinema, went to see Burn after reading. Malkovich, Clooney, Pitt. Amazing.

I'll tell you why "amazing" after you see it.

Rocky: What is this watchit3? Do you need to install any software to download movies or do they stream the movies? From a first look at their site, it looked like you have to download their software.

Since i am out of India right now, i would really appreciate if you can tell me more on this!!

No site will host or stream movies, it is piracy and illegal. However, there are blogs that might tell you if a movie has been hosted on Rapidshare or Megaupload and similar. That information will not be givien by the admins of the site but its visitors.

Of course you will need a rapidshare or megaupload premium account (which you have to pay for) - information about "scene" releases, R5s, cams and more are freely available on the internet, using google.

Team-BHP.com does not promote, accept or condone piracy of any kind.

My God! This is the most dumb movie one can see! Please go yourself a favor and do not waste your time! This is in the leagues of Balakrishnan (Telugu) or Vijaykanth (Tamil) movies!!!

Watched Transporter 3. First half was ok and second half was real bad. The car chase scene was good. Rating 2/5

Just finished watching TROPHICAL THUNDER. Its about a movie crew shooting a wartime story and screws up almost everything while shooting. The director then sends out the actors into real warzone and shoots the movie through hidden cams. The plot is interesting and a real funny movie to watch. You will love Tom Cruise's dance in the end of the movie. Rating 3.5/5

Transporter-3

Been there, done that. Jasaon sleepwalks through the movie as does the director. More fight sequences than the car chases and the chases not that interesting too.

Verdict - 2/5

If you are looking for free movie streaming then what Sam said is right.

However if you are willing the pay, things are slowly changing .
Netflix can now stream movies directly to your pc.

for more info refer the Netflix site Or
Watch Netflix streaming movies in Windows Media Center - Download Squad

Sam,
'Burn After Reading' was wonderful indeed, didnt quite get it until Pitt arrived. Oz is played to perfection by John.

As I have seen, MegaVideo is better than NetFlix.

Saw " Maharathi" last night and i have mixed feelings about the movie

It' a story of a frustrated/failed/dejected Naseer offering his greedy wife (Neha) a chance to convert his suicide into a murder to gain insurance money. It seemed like a plot straight from a "James Hadley Chase" novel which incidentally is one of my favorite authors.

Movie lighting is dark and dingy. Most of actors in this movie seem disinterested and plot was quite good indeed but it could have been made much tighter and add some more suspense to it.

Neha looked hot.

Paresh looked quite young in the movie except during close-shots and as usual the entire movie belongs to him and he did a fairly nice job.

Tara Sharma was ok but, someone change her vocal cord, just a nasty sounding voice.

Boman Irani was a dissapointment and Naseer was just about adequate.

Go see this movie, if you like some suspense and have nothing better to do.

My rating : 2.5/5

Actually Paras you were spot on. (Except for the spelling of sarcastic, lol)

I saw the movie on the recommmendation of Gunbir, who was there too (we went with a few friends) and I don't blame im for thinking the movie was good. IMdB thought it was good. THe brothers have directed movies like "No Country for Old Men", "Fargo" and "The Big Lebowski" - though to tell you the truth we found that out later.

I love black comedy.

Somehow I thought this movie was amazingly bad for a stellar cast like that. It was dull and immemorable, except for a particular chair.

But clearly this is only my opinion (and the opinion of the entire group that went for the movie - there were 25 people in the cinema, we were 10 out of those), some BHPians have liked it, lol.
