In response to Netflix's recent list of 10 Most Popular Rentals Of All Time, the download/sharing/pirating/possibly illegal site Bit Torrent has released their list of the 10 Most Pirated Films Of All Time. I'm not sure if we can draw any conclusions or shocking revelations in comparing the two lists. I'd say the Netflix list is slightly "classier?" But that's my Michael Bayjudice talking. It's also worth noting that the illegal downloading/sharing/buccaneering/filmburglaring don't seem to have had much impact on the amount of money the films made in the theater, though it potentially cut into the money they would have made in home rentals. Also? According to the comments on the original article, these folks don't enjoy being called pirates, savvy? Here they are, title, number of downloads and worldwide gross.

1. Avatar (2009) 21 million $2,782,275,172
2. The Dark Knight (2008) 19 million $1,001,921,825
3. Transformers (2007) 19 million $709,709,780
4. Inception (2010) 18 million $825,408,570
5. The Hangover (2009) 17 million $467,483,912
6. Star Trek (2008) 16 million $385,680,446
7. Kick-Ass (2010) 15 million $96,188,903
