    ok, i may be just stupid but i downloaded a bunch of files and they look like this:
    movie.par
    movie.p01
    movie.p02
    etc..

    k now i have no idea how to extract them. i tried stuffit and unrarx but they dont seem to work. maybe i am doing it wrong im not sure. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    those are just parity files. you can open them with unrarX but you need the .rar files to actually get the movie. the parity files only check and make sure that the RAR files are bit perfect. although i believe if you are missing some files, it has the ability to fill in the missing data.
