I don't think that this is of our concern so much at all. While assuming piracy might be a reasonable deduction, we just don't know. And even more than that, it seems irrelevant. As long as the question does not propagate or encourage piracy or link to pirated content, it seems not relevant where and how the OP has watched the movie. And in the end, he might ...

I believe there shouldn't be any problem with this, provided you're sensible about it: make sure your answer is more than just a link to the other site. See also Are answers that just contain links elsewhere really "good answers"? on main meta. Basically, the text of your answer should be coherent and useful even without the links. "See [link] for ...

Did you see this? Probably not, given you didn't use the "identify-this-movie" tag.

I think you should ask yourself "What's wrong with What was done to prevent Black Widow from getting pregnant?" I don't see any particular problem with the edited title. Nothing is wrong with ...

Lists have always been a fun topic for us (and SE as a whole). In general, the examples you give are actually really what I would expect from a question that can be answered with thought and explanation. I think those 2 words are the key to this whole argument. If you can just slap together a bulleted list and call the question answered, the question ...

Despite that one question which I fixed later, I'm against list questions, mostly because they tend to fall into this off-topic category: every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?” As unless someone puts in serious research effort very quickly, there will be dozens of answers naming single movies and no way to say which is better ...
