1. was it real? most of the torrents I saw were either outed as fake, or otherwise, just seemed fake (eg. identical file names and file sizes as the ones that were outed as fake) 2. how was the quality? 3. if all above is satisfactory...where to kop?

All the files I have downloaded have been fake so far.

Why waste the experience watching some poor-quality cam-shot copy? See it in the theater and if you're really that cheap see it during the matinee times when the ticket prices are discounted.

Poor-quality cam-shot copy? Please. Most leaks nowadays are DVD rips or bluray rips.

But is spending an hour spent finding a decent copy worth not just paying to see it in theater?

That doesn't make any sense. You actually spend more time getting to the theater than doing a 5 minute search to find the movie online. It is fucked up, but it's just too easy to download stuff.

I live in a place where it has not been released (and is unlikely to be).

Saw it yesterday - loved it. Best film I've seen in a long time.

Watched the movie last night. It's fantastic. A bit sappy, sentimental, cutesy (the therapist pissed me off) and strained. But powerful nonetheless. It's a feel-good movie, not the type of movie that will be remembered for decades, but a movie that makes you feel damn good while your watching it. It's a real crowd pleaser, intertwining the battle between HRHKG and his stutter and the war between England and the Nazis (let 'em burn). The final scene is very moving, and the sensation you get when watching it on the large screen, with the music (Mozart) timed perfectly to the speech, is powerful indeed.

The movie made me nostalgic for the types of rulers the world used to have. Seeing his royalty, the affection of his subjects and the responsibility he felt towards them, I couldn't help but think that I'd have been a redcoat in 1776. British monarchy>American democracy.
