About two weeks ago we heard that the HD DVD anti-copy AACS protection had been cracked.
This week one of the first HD DVD movies leaked to the Internet. It's Serenity, the Firefly movie. I've seen this movie last month and its a pretty good one if you like this kind of SciFi space movies. But before you watch the movie I recommend you first watch the 14 episodes of the Firefly TV series. Firefly got canned pretty quick by Fox but it's really a very good TV series.
The Serenity HD DVD copy is available on some torrent sites and if you download this you'll be able to enjoy the movie in 1080p quality. However, the HD DVD is pretty big, if you manage to find it somewhere it could take a few days before you have the full movie because its 19.6GB big!
Because these files are so big I don't think HD DVD will become very popular on torrent networks. Instead of downloading the pirated Serenity HD DVD movie people can download up to 28 700MB DVD rips or 14 1.4GB DVD rips.
