Do you remember when was the last time you really felt like hypnotized by a movie?
Do you think that the audience’s taste has changed to know the difference between a bad movie or a good movie?
Do you think that the negativity taste of the audience is the reason effecting movies’ ratings?
As a one of the audience, what do you base on to judge a movie?
In my opinion, the story & the acting come first and then comes the graphics & sound effects.
I think that the world has a lack of good writers, does anyone agree?
Actually, there are good writers, but I assume that they don’t want to jeopardize their stories by letting them made as movies. Because, they feel by doing that, their stories will be less interesting than they are in books. Because, in show business, a story has to be compressed and extracted to become a three hours long -maximum. And because of this process the story becomes less interesting.
And this will reflect on the writer’s renown which is what he has in his life as a writer.
Another reason that keeps the good writers’ work away from the show business in my opinion is there fear of movies performance, acting, graphics & visual and audio effects will not deliver their story the way it should be.
After the story, comes the acting which is the most sensitive pedestal of the movie that will deliver the real performance of the movie. The acting role here is capable to control the quality of the story.
Do you remember when was the last time you felt the goose bumps because of an amazing acting scene?
We don’t want to go through the audio and the graphics because they are doing good because of the new cinematic technology.
Finally, we find ourselves in a crime scene and in front of us, laying a dead body of an old man called “G. Movie” in a red dark room. The victim is stabbed to death by three different daggers. The victim’s body is filled by scars and old bruises - seems like he was attacked several times before. Three types of DNA samples were found- seems like the victim was defending himself. The suspects are “N. Audience”, “T. Writer” & “B. Actor”, but because they are his best friends, the case was closed.
This is my opinion. I shared it with you to seek help in finding the real reason behind the question which is eating my head lately (Why don’t we have good movies anymore?)

In my recent years in the BitTorrent community, I have learned many things about torrents, and why they are such a target. It seems that there are tempting organizations, who try to create an absurd claim that the BitTorrent Protocol is used specifically to infringe upon copyrighted material.
What they fail to mention, are the heavy advantages of the BitTorrent Protocol, which are used for the intention of spreading knowledge and creativity within the community, for the greater good of expanding the amount of information available to the world. By doing this, we make leaps and bounds which at one point in time, were not possible.
In this case, the amount of knowledge which is shared, only creates a more informed and educated world, on how software works, operates, is commanded, and how to use it. This kind of "evolves" the world at a rapid pace, for what they can use to possibly invent new technologies, or help the human race with advancements that even fifteen years ago we're not thought possible.
These types of benefits, can happen when information is shared at high rates, to places in the world, which normally couldn't access the similar tools needed for their project. So by allowing the world of information available in some places, to reach places where they lack the same advantages, such as libraries, or internet cafe's, or schools with high speed internet, for example, all prove great cases for the BitTorrent Protocol.
That's the goal of those of us whom care, while we share. We truly believe file sharing is a right, and must be defended as such. We can go on about copyrighted material, and how that could be used as a defense that the BitTorrent Protocol is being used to cause some industries, mainly the Entertainment Industry, to lose "potential" financial gain.
Let me debate this case. I feel the urge to explain the audacity of any claim such as that.
Let me begin by winding down what the internet does in a 2010 post Millennium era of technology. It has created so many advancements, for businesses, for corporations, for governments, and for their people, that along with pros of any situation, of course there will be windfall cons as well.
What I mean by this, is by the email, text messaging communications ran through the databases of any network carrier, or ISP, the fax communications, the rapid access to orders, shipment paperwork, legal processing, claims, or any type of information used while a government, business, or industry, are attempting to quickly accomplish their goals, that no person in the world cannot claim that the internet and fast file or information sharing, has gained them the ability to profit very fast, and finalize agreements much quicker. This results in a huge profit gain, by the industry, as result of the internet and file and/or information sharing.
Imagine living still in an era where all paper based information had to travel by postal or delivery service. The amount of time, between when a transaction could complete for example, would come to such a slow pace, businesses, governments, or even people would be set to a slow growth in advancements, which in turn would lead to a smaller profit margin than most see today. I think that's a fair assessment of the situation, and by all means, anyone who thinks otherwise I'd feel free to debate that as well.
Moving on though, what I am trying to explain though, is that with any advancement, such as file or information sharing, will come with a cost as well. Some of the cons, are that some entertainment industry representatives can claim well now that copyrighted material is shared, and that this costs them as businesses of an industry where the selling of information, or data, is essential to their success, cannot afford to lose the "potential" profits that are being lost due to the "alleged" illegal file sharing. Ok, I think that's a fair statement too from the industry, absolutely. Now let me debate it.
My return to them is this, without the quick spread of material, data, documents, transactions, that they also use upon the internet, then they would be losing much more than they claim to lose just from the "alleged" illegal file sharing. As I said previously, if they were still using "snail" mail to deliver their goods they sell online, and there were no online sharing of information, then their profit margins would be MASSIVELY less than they are now. I believe that's a completely true statement too.
So if they want to use the complaint that file sharing is killing their profits, and want to remove the internet from the world, I suggest to them do this for one month. Due to their huge investments in other worldwide projects, I doubt they would do this. They would probably go bankrupt, without all the profits they receive online.
Think about it, ringtones which a percentage are given to the record companies, games which can be mailed and processed online, movies which can be legally mailed online, albums that can be paid for to download, or mail to them, there is just so much, that they gain, by using the internet, that it's created an "industry within the industry", in my eyes. They could not possibly ignore this.
They first, before claiming that the file sharing information digital age is harming them, need to consider the gains in which it also benefits them. The war against file sharing, is a war against themselves, a war against the world.
I believe we all know very well, that if the entertainment industry, used certain forms of file sharing to their advantage, in example, the BitTorrent Protocol, they would realize the potential gains they would receive would magnificently increase their profits. Let me give them examples. If they would optimize file sharing, using high speed servers, to transfer movies, or music, for pay per download services, they could reach a HUGE range of peers, paying peers, fast, whom would be customers to them.
There is an amazing market out there for this, and a simple programming of a high speed 1-10GBPS server with massive bandwidth, would be able to allow 10,000-50,000 minimum paying customers to receive a movie, or music album each day, per server, @ for example one dollar per download, that's $50,000 per day, per server. 20 servers, would be a million dollars per day.
Wow. Why they are failing to recognize this, and use it to it's potential, is beyond me. I still cannot imagine, why the industries of entertainment, would claim that they maybe have a billion dollars per year in losses, but do not use this method, that with only 20 servers, would make around $356 million per year.
Add it up. BitTorrent has more than 150 million users worldwide. If more than 150 million users per year, are using BitTorrent, and file sharing, then it's the laws which need to change, not the users.
Maybe the industry is failing to see that, not only along with what their companies can do using the information technology for fast processing, that if they would capitalize upon the potential that remains, they would be gaining at least $356 million per year, per one million users. There are an estimated 150 million users currently, in these types of networks.
That's a one dollar per download, of a movie, and an album. Of course I made an extremely inexpensive number, just as example, of their potential earnings. At five dollars per movie, and five per album, they would make $1.78 billion dollars per year, from twenty servers. Wow. That's simply amazing. We're talking only one million people per day, downloading a movie or album, each day. There is an estimated 150 million users who use the networks, and at that rate, that's less than one percent of them downloading each day.
At that ratio, they would make a fortune, and of course, it would probably be more like fifty times that amount of users per day, I would say fifty million downloads a day, that they could reach. That would multiply their total again, from $1.78 billion per year to $89 billion per year.
According to a 2006 study by the internet consultancy Envisional, file sharing networks account for at least 60 per cent of all internet traffic. So if even a large majority of those users leaped upon the legal service. the entertainment industry would gain such massive increases, that the potential earnings would be astounding. An "industry, within an industry", which is something I say time, and time again.
This is my counter to any claim, that the file sharing networks of the world and the information age as we know it are harming the entertainment industry, and copyright protections. The fact they they continue to not monopolize this industry, which right now sits as an untapped diamond mine, only shows their own ignorance.
The US Supreme Court reached this decision, here is a copy of the text they once wrote, about file sharing software.

We're a torrent site, a large and growing one at that. Seems some have forgotten the roots in why we exist. We exist because we love to share files. File sharing is something that is a given right to each of us, no matter who or what tries to blockade us from this. We here at Extra Torrent, exist solely for this purpose, to help pinpoint you in the right direction for all your BitTorrent Protocol needs. Our community is strong, and our fanbase is widespread. Everywhere I go I hear the appreciation for the things we do on ET. Let's explore the roots of ET.
The View From Atop The Mountain
Once I was told, that the view from atop the mountain, was high, and widespread. That once you reached those heights, the air would be fresh, the skies clear, and the sun would keep you warm. I have yet to feel this sun upon my back, yet to view the open skies, and yet to breathe that fresh air. That mountain top, that was so steep to climb, makes everything below, seem so far away.
That is how the world looks, when you cannot get any higher in your travels. You sense the sudden shock of reality, telling you that there is no more destinations for you to reach. Your heart then takes over your mind, and tells you, that there has to be more. Something else must be out there. Sometimes you know in your head, that the end is nigh, but if you have the heart of a pirate, daring to set sail on every sea, then you know deep inside, the journey has just began.
In recent months, I have debated on leaving this world that we all exist in, this torrent world. Am I afraid? Never. Do I feel bored? At times yes. Do I love ET? Of course. ET will always be my home. This place has been amazing, and I've watched it skyrocket in my time here. I've fought my way to the top, everywhere I have went in life, and what I have accomplished, I am proud of.
Whenever someone was in doubt, or needed a helping hand, xxxOBSCENExxx has always been there for them. The thousands upon thousands of PMs I have replied to, assisting others, I never grew tired of doing, as sharing is caring. Sharing my knowledge was something that I knew not only helped the person whom needed my assistance, but if you believe in "paying it forward", hopefully that person would then spread the same knowledge to others in need. This is what keeps the torrent world alive, all of you, who dare not turn the other cheek, to those in need.
Our little world, has always had it's competitions, from uploaders, to site battles, to release groups all trying to bring out the most quality at the fastest pace. Never did I expect the discontent from within, the walls of the fortress I was assigned to guard and protect. I have come to realize, that in fact, when you do nothing, you are hated, and when you succeed, there will still remain those who choose to try and cut you down. No matter what you do, those will attempt to make you into the enemy.
Whether this happens because of jealousy, or if this happens out of spite, I do not know. All I know is, recent contradictions and developments have led me to believe, that you can't win if you win, and you surely do not win if you lose. There comes a point, where you have to decide what it is you want out of something, and when you feel that you're unappreciated, especially from within your own "home", you tend to break that cycle, and find something new.
This is a struggle, that I am aware happens daily, and at times, I know we all go through this in our lives. Is it worth the loss? Maybe. Will you regret decisions you have made in the past? For sure. All I know, is each and every day for the better part of 2009, I have dedicated my time and my all, to bringing you, the members of our Extra Torrent community, quality releases, and also, trying along with the rest of the ET staff, to remove all unwanted content from this site. For the people of the world, not for myself.
I have always had strong feelings about file sharing, its a method, that is important to each of us, and most do not see, that the war on file sharing, is a war on our basic freedoms and rights as human beings. Censoring the internet, is a battle I have long stood in the warzone over, armed, and vocal, ready to fight the good fight. This is something I will continue to do, no matter where this long journey takes me.
I want to take the time to thank each and every one in the torrent world, who shares files. This is the biggest and most important thing you can do, to let your voices be heard. Together we can change the way industry does business, and force a modern technological take onto the way the world operates, and how digital media and all media in general is distributed. I want to thank all the members of ET, for sticking by us as long as you have, and watching this place grow into something beautiful, and also, let you guys know, this site will continue to grow and bring you amazing new features, and be the only place you need to go for all your torrent needs.
