I think we’ve all come across movie download websites that promise “unlimited downloads” of your chosen movies. For what appears to be a reasonable fee, some give you a yearly or lifetime regular membership that allows you to acquire thousands of films, ranging from classics to recent blockbusters. And it’s really all available right from the ease of your own PC! Sounds like quite a lot, right? free movies
And better yet, a number of these movie download websites promise you these great films in high DVD AND BLU-RAY quality, or a format suitable for your Sony SONY PSP, iPod, or entertainment system. Some don’t just offer movies, but music too! And then for an one time membership fee? This appears too good to be true!

What it claims: They boast unrestricted downloads, a variety of movies and music, and a variety of formats to choose from (. avi, divx,. mov,. mp3, etc). The service claims to be spyware/virus free (for people using Windows), and for mac users, The Film Downloads says it’s totally mac friendly.
They even offer software (if you need it) to burn off the files you down load onto CDs and Digital video disks. With a tech support system in place, this site will refund your money if you’re not satisfied for any reason.
Almost all that’s left so that you can do is sign up for their service, choose the membership option that’s best for you, then pay the $49. 99 charge. From there, you should have instant access.
What really happens: Once you aren’t in, you define yourself as a mac or PC user, then choose whether or not most likely an “Advanced” or “Beginner” user. For “Advanced” users, you are directed to download uTorrent (Windows) or Tomato Torrent (Mac).
