    Here's a simple and effective way of eliminating lots of fakes from your search list. Go to a review of the movie and check out its running time. Anything that differs greatly is almost certain to be rubbish.

    Example - Matrix Reloaded runs for 2hrs 18 mins so a genuine file(s) will run between that and about 2hrs 5mins - depending on how much has been cut from the credits.

    By the way - has anyone watched all 2hrs 57mins of swedish porn just in case their movie was in there!

    I'm not sure you got the point. No file will be the exact length of the movie but a lot of fakes are so wide of the mark that they cannot be the real deal.

    The case I quoted above is an extreme example - the Marta Karlsson swedish porn movie is used as a fake all over the place but it gives a running time of 2hrs 57mins. So - search for your movies and then sort the results by time. My rough estimate is that anything over the "official" running time plus anything 10% or more below is likely to be a fake.

    Isn't it easier to just stick to the verifieds?

    Although using your tip can be helpful sometimes,i guess.
