Torrent downloads make use of Torrent files to retrieve movies, music and other files quickly. They do this by getting a little piece of each file from a different user who is also downloading the file. The downside is that this makes your download very public. If you care about privacy and would rather your Internet service provider not watch everything you download, you can privatise the downloads using some free online tools.
