    I don't wish to cause any offence (and perhaps this is obvious), but you should be aware that unless you are prepared to pay for the movies, you are probably breaking the law by downloading them (unless these are free movies, in which case there are several sites where you can get these).

    But ignoring the legal aspects, people often use peer-to-peer file sharing software, rather than web sites. With P2P software, you actually download from other internet users, rather than individual sites. A simple search in google should reveal more information, but basically you have to install some separate software, and this allows you to search a P2P network for material, and download it. Unfortunately, a lot of the software contains spyware, and you may potentially expose your system to viruses, and all kinds of other nasties. So take care with p2p software.
