Even though superheroes like The Hulk keep smashing their way through TorrentFreak’s top 10 Downloaded Movies on BitTorrent, smaller film Boy A cut through the capes to break into the top half of the list. A was edged out by another newcomer, Mirrors, the Keifer Sutherland-starring horror movie that had a brief life in theaters.

Over at the Video Breakouts Cool 100 list, Seth MacFarlane’s (sethcomedy) animated Cavalcade of Comedy is gunning for the top spot, but the real story is No Good TV, which jumped up of 67 places — though from looks of its YouTube channel, the move was powered by Paris Hilton and Kim Kardshian videos.

I hate people who torrent. There just thiefs. Sorry if that’s sounds a bit harsh but wouldn’t you be annoyed if you invested money or built a program to sell and then there people downloading what you spend years making for free.
