That's actually a fallacy, depending on the method of distribution. If you use a method such as P2P (and since you mentioned torrents, this is especially so), the downloader is invariably an uploader as well, for other downloaders.
Personally, and hopefully without stepping on anybody's toes, the idea of illegally (I'd welcome a legal alternative if it meant I'd never have to sit next to a person with a sneezing fit again) downloading films, especially new ones readily available (or soon to be) on DVDs or cinemas makes me queasy. Though, on the flipside, I can understand cineastes attempting to watch older and rare films in any form they can get their hands on.
