Who cares if Avatar
has grossed more money than any movie, ever, or that it’s had two theatrical releases and multiple home video offerings? A lot of
people, apparently. James Cameron’s late-2009 sci-fi blockbuster was the most-downloaded movie of this year
among file-sharers, a (sadly) whopping 16.6 million times. Even more tragic is what falls in the number 2 spot, Kick-Ass
. Matt Vaughn’s exceptional genre-busting superhero flick was underrated and underseen--by paying
customers, at any rate. For shame, pirates. For shame. -- Adam Rosenberg
