    Check out this new torrent search engine for movies. Amazing layout with tasteful use of ajax. You can watch all the trailers and then if you like a movie you can get a nice list of the various torrents for that movie that are going around. It's no wonder that no one buys movies any more!

    Nope, not my site, I just found it on ycombinator and was just impressed by it.

    If it was mine it would be covered in advertising and you wouldn't get a damned thing for free.

    The site layout is very impressive, how does he monetize?

    Doesn't appear to be monetized at all to me. Maybe he's going to add ads later. The BW cost can't be that much though, because all he's doing is serving html and thumbnails really.

    You could almost make a scraper site like this: scrape the movie info from IMDB, scrape the torrent sites for torrents, scrape Youtube for trailers. The only bits that would really need to be done by hand would be the cropping for each movie page and the final checking - both of which could be easily outsourced.

    If it was my site, I'd leave it ad-free, cloak it and use it to link to my blackhat sites. I'm sure the owner is getting a shit load of backlinks from posts just like this one.

    In fact I am pretty sure this is a scraper site, because a few of the trailers for the more obscure movies are wrong. Fucking slick piece of work.
