Bilbo Baggins had An Unexpected Journey this past year — and a lot of people felt like downloading it. According to TorrentFreak, The Hobbit was the most pirated movie of 2013 with 8.4 million downloads.

Here are the top 10 pirated films on BitTorrent networks:

1. The Hobbit

2. Django Unchained

3. Fast and Furious

4. Iron Man 3

5. Silver Linings Playbook

6. Star Trek Into Darkness

7. Gangster Squad

8. Now You See Me

9. The Hangover Part 3

10. World War Z

Check out their chart comparing downloads vs worldwide grosses. As TorrentFreak noted, the top-grossing film of the year, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, isn't even on the list whereas the relatively low-grossing Gangster Squad was No. 7. Do you think that’s because more fans wanted to see Catching Fire in the theater, rather than downloading at home? Also, online streaming and cyberlocker downloads weren't included since there were no public data sources to cite. So the real piracy count is actually a lot higher.

In terms of TV shows, HBO's Game of Thrones was No. 1 again, followed by Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, and Dexter. Check out that top 10.

Fess up, did you illegally download a movie or TV show in 2013? If so, which one(s) and why?
