Low-Res Movie Download Services - Destroyers of the Home Theater Viewing Experience
Cinemanow offers a variety of services now available through Windows Media Center.  It appears there is no support for Apple users.  Sorry.  Also, most all downloads are listed at 1200 and 1500 kbps for about a total of a 1.5 GB download.  This correlates to less than one quarter the resolution of a purchased DVD.  Don't even bother comparing the resolution with the bitrate and resolution of Blu-ray discs.  Not to mention, the sound format of even new releases is stereo.

It’s no secret that David Chase, the creator of the hit HBO series, The Sopranos, is fond of ending his episodes by dramatically fading out to music and a black screen. Last night’s “Made In America” episode took that directorial technique to an insulting and jarring new level. At the very end of the show, Chase dramatically built tension around what looked like either an FBI raid or a mob-hit on the Soprano family as they sat in one of New Jersey’s famous diners. Meadow Soprano, Tony’s beloved daughter and law student, was haplessly trying to parallel park her Lexus as her family sat inside the diner. The show built to an intense musical crescendo that led the viewer to think something of significance was going to happen. And then – out of nowhere – the episode abruptly cut to black and left the screen dark for an extended period of time.
