  1. Avatar broke various records at the box office, so it's not too surprising the title has been crowned as the most pirated movie in 2010. It's also worth noting that Avatar beat last year's record of total movie downloads in 12 months: Star Trek with 10,960,000 downloads.

    Heh heh...Victim of it's own success eh. I doubt Cameron will be too annoyed, due to the killing he made from it.

    Never bothered. I already own pocahontas. Don't need a version in space.

    I just realized an ironic tid-bit of dark humor pertaining to Avatar. Most people likely spent more money watching Avatar than they donated to nature conservation in any given year. xD

    Seeing Avatar in 3D on a big screen was pretty cool. Really have no interest in watching it again on a TV, not the same.

    How many times must I tell you people, it was, "Fern Gully", in outer space, not "Pocahontas"!

    Well, maybe a little bit Pocahontas, but more Fern Gully.

    To whom it may concern; notice when you capitalize the first letter of a proper noun, Firefox will take away the ugly red lines under it, as opposed to putting them there when you don't.

    And speaking of awards, does "most pirated movie", come with a trophy? Let me be the first to suggest the, "Arrrrghy"! This would consist of a golden peg leg and matching golden eye patch for the director. C'mon Jimbo, try them on!

    I honestly would have figured that number to be way higher then that considering the popularity of Avatar.

    Ah, Fern Gully I remember seeing that in theaters as a kid, fun movie :) . In any case, Avatar seems to be a pretty obvious mix of both to me rather then one over the other.

    In either case, it deserves my "Arrrrghy"...!

    Especially since the plot was pirated, then the movie was pirated heavily. I mean how far must a director go for affirmation of achievement...?.

    YAH MAN. I CAN TOTALLY JUDGE THAT IT SUCKS EVEN THOUGH I HAVENT EVER SEEN IT!!!!!

    Give me a f*cking break. If your judging a movie you haven't seen and say that it sucks you need to go back to school.

    Uh....yah....fun movie. I loved it so much(sarcasm). Anyway I'll leave this here.

    Sorry, but once captain cranky hits you, the war is over, and you have lost, lol. Especially with comments like that.

    Yeah, that makes perfect sense! [/sarcasm]
    I just love how people talk about how much this movie sucked, even though it topped the box office charts and is the most downloadable movie. Yet again, that makes perfect sense! [/sarcasm]

    I actually feel sort of the same way BUT my way of speaking would go a little different. Something like,

    I've never been keen on giving Avatar a go, from the trailers i've seen, it just doesn't look my type i don't think.

    That's what i was thinking. I just didn't express very well + my friends told me it was a shitty movie.
