Like most folks, I have friends that download movies from BitTorrent sites. Personally I don't have much experience getting movies from such sites. However I did read a story about topsites.

Topsites are secret web sites that share pirated stuff like movies and software games. These aren't normal peer to peer sites like Kazaa. These are open to a limited amount of people in the club. You need to be on their list to get access to the sites.

Getting movies and such onto topsites is not easy. They only want the high quality stuff. That requires high tech and expensive hardware to rip movies. But you do get some bragging rights when your stuff is downloaded by everyone.
