I guess both, because when I buy movies, I buy them on iTunes. But I usually end up downloading a lot more movies without paying for them than I do buy them.

I don't really buy movies often actually. If I do get one, I get the hard copy. I like having hard copies of things, and having the actual DVD means I can bring it on long bus trips for everyone to enjoy. Downside is that you can lose it, but I don't lose things often so that's not much of a problem.

I download a lot of movies. I don't see the point in buying something that you can have for free. However I do buy box-sets or films worth buying, ones I would be proud of having in my shelf.

There should be an 'Other' option on the poll.
I do not download, nor buy movies. I watch them in the cinemas or wait for them to be showed on HBO.

I prefer to have physical copies of things. I have terrible luck with computers and their "cloud storage" stuff, as well as downloading crap.
I know that I can re download most of the stuff I lose for free if my laptop crashes, but still, it takes time. I'd rather just pop it in and watch it NOW rather than sit there and download it. Plus, it takes up your computer's storage.

I was thinking about that this morning. I had to give a presentation in my gov class and when I inserted my flash drive to the teacher's computer for the projector, I was kind of wondering if anyone saw and what they thought about me having a little movie collection on the flash, lol.

I'm all for it. I do preach 'oh I only download movies I've paid to see in theater or bought the DVD of,' to cool some people's jets, but admittedly I do download movies I've never paid for. Who's to say I won't enjoy it and buy the DVD later, though?

I usually stream whether it's free or not. Websites that stream movies legally is fine with me but most of the time they aren't available in Asia so I'm left with no choice but to go for the free sites. As for downloads, I don't download movies immediately. I have to watch it first and see if it's worth buying for a re-watch though, and if it is indeed worth something then I'd buy a digital copy that can be downloaded at any given time.

It's very similar to music. If I ended up liking a particular song that I've heard on Youtube, then I'll immediately purchase a digital copy off from iTunes.

I think I'll do both, since it depends on my own decision to buy or to download. Although currently I'm focusing more on buying.

I love that we have stuff like netflix and hulu these days because it's a cheap way to get movies without pirating it. I would never go out of my way to buy a single movie, especially with how much they cost. I would only do that with a particular movie if I REALLY like it and even then I'm not sure.
