I thought that you could not download rare movies with Vuze, that Bittorrent clients were for very popular movies. But I was wrong. You can actually download movies even if the torrent has, say 5 seeds. So these are the films I downloaded (in Spain we pay a tax on storage media and it is legal to download movies for personal consumption).

Amreeka, Revanche, Seraphine, Shake Hands with the Devil, Chidren of Heaven,Eastern,The Sweet Herafter,The Messenger,Food Inc,La Meglio Gioventu,Secretary,Afghan Star and Crazy Heart.

All these films were recommended to me by Netflix. The paradox is that I pay my monthly Netflix fee but Netflix does not allow me to stream these movies in Spain. So I use Netflix recommendation engine to know what I will like (Netflix is 90% accurate with my unusual taste for movies) and I complement it with free downloads from Vuze. I am also paying Witopia to show me with a US IP but it works with Pandora, Hulu, HBO and not anymore with Netflix.

I discovered Vuze the day you posted it on twitter. Since then I found all the Noir movies I coudn’t find at stores or that are harder to find like The Asphalt Jungle, Sunset Blvd, Chinatown, The Big Sleep and others like 1984 that’s out of print. Heck… One day I even tried Bagdad Cafe just to see if it was there and it was. What can I say… There are no good record stores around anymore and even though I would get these DVDs they are just not around.

Yo contrate el servicio de witopia gracias a tu recomendacion en el articulo “netflix o el camino menos transitado” … me ha parecido un excelente servicio ya que nos permitio acceder a una cuenta de netflix desde Italia … de las opciones de servicio en witopia contratamos la que tiene la lista mas grande de servidores y es cierto que a veces no puedes entrar a netflix con algunos servidores pero basta con cambiar de servidor de witopia para poder entrar.
