    I know people have been using them torrents and other pirate sources to steal movies for years but I prefer to own originals in DVD or digital format.

    I feel the years of physically driving to Hollywood Video to rent or purchase a DVD are drawing to a close. Soon all movie distribution, purchase and rental, will be via the Internet.
    I'm curious about the cost and the download time? Are the movies encoded to play on a computer, or can you burn a copy to a DVD to play on any DVD player?

    I remember as kid there was a drivein in or around every town. Now the closest one to me is a 45 min drive. Pity, I miss them.
    Me too!

    Actually, the future will probably be with outfits like NetFlix that send the videos right to your door and provide a mailer to return them. Most people don't want to spend the time downloading something of questionable quality and don't really want to collect videos either - they just want to watch them.
