Look away, MPAA.

RestoftheMovie.com will probably be taken offline pretty soon, since it seems like they show full (screener) versions of current movies (like Kung Fu Panda and Ironman) in streaming format, so you'll probably want to check it out sooner rather than later.

Zombie Strippers???? HURRY!

There are a lot of these sites out there, to find them all you usually need to do is google 'watch [movie/tv] online". The quality is uniformly dismal, as is the streaming performance, as the content is typically served from China.

Also known as moviereleased.com, (which is the name that shows on their disclaimer page). Speaking of disclaimers, I love this:

Yeah good luck with that buddy.

Replace "screener" with "bootleg" and that would be accurate. Although there is something quite poignant about hearing Carrie Bradshaw's voice echo into a cavernous theatre in the "Sex and the City" bootleg.

Surely, it won't be Dave's fault after he's posted it here on MEfi and made 50k more people aware of its existence...

Yeah this is some Chinese bootleg shit. Kung Fu Panda isn't fully focused and cockeyed. Or maybe thats how they made it.

Yeah, thanks Dave. I was able to save at least $60 by having my son watch movies on sites like those. Now what am I going to do? Wait 10 days until the DVD comes out? (shudddder)

The life of a young, Japanese schoolgirl is destroyed when her family is killed by a Ninja-Yakuza family. Her hand cut off, she replaces it with various machines-of-death, and seeks revenge.

This is the movie I've been waiting for my whole life.

This post has made me aware of The Machine Girl and Zombie Strippers, and for that you have my eternal gratitude, Dave Faris.

The MPAA sucks. So does the RIAA. Incredibly so. But this site's pretty unambiguously illegal.

Kung Fu Panda isn't fully focused and cockeyed.

Don't worry, once they do the song and dance scene and he admits that he likes the girl tiger as more than a pal, there's a wacky fart-filled training montage and he totally gets his shit together.

Whatever happened to that crazy Tokyo Gore Police movie?

boo_radley: Heh. Item and I saw Zombie Strippers... IN THE THEATER.

Yeah, us and about five fraternity dudes who were expecting more softcore than it could possibly deliver.

Jenna Jameson does totally look like a corpse, so that was some inspired casting.

No way, that's some revoltionary screenwriting there! (I should thank you for saving me 90 minutes I guess.)

Exactly! I saw a cam version of Be Kind Rewind - which hadn't been released in Holland then - and I thought the shaky, grainy pictures of a movie screen seemed not only totally possibly intended that way, it being a Gondry film, but also absurdly fitting considering the movie's premise.

Heaven forbid people pay for their Hollywood movie addiction. This is crap.

I saw an interview with her once; her voice sounds like she's been smoking two packs a day for forty years.

OK proj,
Gave it another try after checking flash for latest version (I had it). Works now! These computers... can't figure them out. I just program them.

...Especially after being talked about in places like this.

Yea, for the [Proper] Scene folks, these ARE NOT trailers, they're CAM-TS's, meaning they're literally made by someone taking a camcorder into the theatre and plugging the mic input into the hearing-impaired headphone jack on the handicapped seats.

AKA--quality is barely watchable. It's highly possible and easy to get actual DVD-screeners for most movies out there---but I'm not gonna tell you how to do it. God save the BitTorrent.

Actually---There's a movie coming out this summer called "The Cleaner" with Samuel L. Jackson that actually got leaked a couple MONTHS ago. I can't imagine the company is very happy about that one.

tudou.com for the win, surprisingly good quality, cam-t's are realitivly rare and it has movies and TV shows. Knowing chinese helps.
