Files that appear on p2p networks that have something wrong with them. For example:
-A film can be nuked for various reasons. Individual sites will nuke for breaking their rules (such as "No Telesyncs" but if the film has something extremely wrong with it (no soundtrack for 20mins, CD2 is incorrect film/game etc) then a global nuke will occur, and people trading it across sites will lose their credits. Nuked films can still reach other sources such as p2p/usenet, but its a good idea to check why it was nuked first in case. If a group realise there is something wrong, they can request a nuke.
NUKE REASONS :: this is a list of common reasons a film can be nuked for (generally DVDRip)
** BAD A/R ** :: bad aspect ratio, ie people appear too fat/thin
** BAD IVTC ** :: bad inverse telecine. process of converting framerates was incorrect.
** INTERLACED ** :: black lines on movement as the field order is incorrect.
Any file can be nuked, though; not just films. Another example is a PC ISO where it hasn't been properly isoed or there is some other technical issue that should not appear with a fully functional copy.
Basically, a nuked release doesn't work as a regular release should.
No, don't download that file; it's nuked and has something wrong with it.
