Guide Review - Torrent Site Review of the Week: Cinematorrents.com

Cinema Torrents is a standout P2P search site. To be precise, Cinema Torrents is not a 'torrent site', but rather a recommendation engine connected to IMDB.com: CT first helps you discover good films, then it helps you locate torrent sites and other download sources for those films (via Torrentz and Mininova). In some ways, searching at Cinema Torrents is like going to a very large video rental store, and getting movie recommendations directly from the store staff.

As a recommendation engine, CT will let you search for exact titles (e.g. "Iron Man 2"). But the real value of CT is the advanced search options: you set some parameters, and let the CT recommendations roll in (e.g. "science fiction" movies newer than 2000 that have received a score of 8.0 or better at IMDB.com).

The site is very visual, with plenty of thumbnail graphics. The sidebar of Top Movies of the Week is very helpful. And the linked data to Internet Movie Database is very engaging.

If you are looking to find a very specific movie torrent and download it quickly, Cinema Torrents won't be your first search choice. But if you have 30 minutes and are interested in discovering movies and films that you've not heard of before, CT is a recommendation site worth trying.

If you want the BEST TORRENTS, Member arnold9911

Yes folks, if you want the best torrents then I can from my experience and faith easily recommend ""Torrentzilla.org"". Its the best site among all the site torrent sites. You get Clean, New, Virus Free, all types of downloads. Speed is super high and they let you improve your ratio by bringing out new schemes very often. I am glad to be a part of them for full 3 yrs. Enjoy and Merry Christmas Arnold
