What about when you get ready to finally relax and enjoy some online content but never get the chance to because your connection download speeds are more like turtle then hare? Slow download capabilities can really put a damper on any endeavor which is why we have decided to source the three longest movies in history so that anyone who wants to put a download booster to the test has some quick and viable options to do so. Lets take a look at the movies and see just exactly what a download booster may be faced with in the most adverse content conditions.
Third Longest Movie In The History of Cinema (#3) – Cinématon by Gérard Courant
Taking 36 years to create and consisting of over 196 hours of experimental film Gérard Courant’s Cinématon is one serious attempt at art. Made up of a collection of over 2,943 silent vignettes (cinématons), each 3 minutes and 25 seconds long, of various celebrities, artists, journalists and friends of the director the movie is an engaging and unique look at the individuality of humanity. How much computing power do you think it would take to download this movie quickly?
Second Longest Movie In The History of Cinema (#2) – Modern Times Forever (Stora Enso Building, Helsinki) by Danish artists’ group Superflex
Taking 240 hours (10 days) to completely watch the film visually explains how Helsinki’s Stora Enso headquarters building would decay over the next few thousand years given current conditions and predicted future element exposure. If it takes a week and a half to watch we can only imagine how long it would take to download by file.
First Longest Movie In The History of Cinema (#1) – Logistics by Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson
Totaling 51,420 minutes (857 hours or 35 days and 17 hours), Logistics by Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson is the longest movie ever made. Tracking the production cycle of a pedometer in real time reverse chronological order the film highlights the productivities and parallels of product. Streamed online this is a great of just how massive media can get but still be consumed by viewers in a viable way.
While we have never heard of anyone trying to download one of these large films off the Internet we can only imagine the mass undertaking it would be. It would be interesting also to see what type of effect a download booster would have on being able to retrieve and use the data quicker. While we have never tried our download booster on media content so long it would be fun to try. What the biggest file or longest piece of music or film you have tried to download? Did you use a download booster to help with the process?
