Few updates & questions ….

Hey All !!

Hope all of you are safe and in best of health along with all friends and family.. I wish you all to be safe, healthy and happy.
Hope you have made a protocol on how to protect yourself and the family against the COVID-19 pandemic, If not then please make one, this thing isnt going anywhere as yet , we all have to take best possible precautions at every level of our daily life.. I am not a specialist but you guys can post your queries regarding this in here as well..

Now off to the topic :

  • 1.. There has been just one donation this month, no UL or RG accounts have been sold and no donations via BTC .. constant looking after and constant help is required dear friends, now more than ever.
    We can add variety of HD and FHD content only if we get enough help.
  • 2.. Since past couple of days you people must be noticing somewhat inflated yet great quality WEB-DL rips , I hope you are finding them pretty soothing to eyes and great in video quality.
    I feel all of us can bear a few more MBs of quality , can’t we ?? With bigger screens of computer monitors 7 Televisions I was feeling we should upgrade the rips a bit.
    This is why for 1080p I am highly inclined to move to x265 ( many times the quality than that of x264 and similar or marginally higher file sizes) plus better quality and a bit of bigger sizes of 720p x264 rips to make them look way more crisp.
    127 Hours (2010) 720p
    Inheritance (2020) 720p – WEB-DL
    Lillian (2019) 720p – WEB-DL
    Killbird (2019) 720p – WEB-DL
    Last Moment Of Clarity (2020) 720p – AMZN-WEB-DL
  • 3.. I would also like to ask If you guys are game to have 5.1 Dolby Digital AC3 audio for all 720p RETAIL-BRrips as well ???
    This all will add to the size of the rips, but see !! now instead of hammering a rip, losing details, making it just okish to watch isnt our goal, we want then to be truly high quality at smallest possible size ( with respect to the quality) ,,, whats your view.
  • 4.. How many of you are following our twitter handle ?? Is it helping you ?? I am of the opinion to not post rip updates on twitter , just important announcements .. whats your opinion.

Aloha Scorp,

I hope you are safe on the healthy and happy side of life!
Generally I think it is a good strategy to have 720p with good picture quality at a reasonable file size of around 1 GB and 1080p with premium picture quality at a file size of around 2 GB – whatever the codec. My understanding is that you know best which result deserves what kind of energy on your side.
I just watched The Inheritance and had nothing to criticise in terms of quality. Looked really good on my screen. It all depnds on the kind of movie, too. Films like The Inheritance are fun to watch even in medium quality, whereas Star Trek, Star Wars, Zombieland etc. deserve the best quality 😉
In comparison I was kinda disappointed picture-wise of the quality of Underwater and 47 meters below: Uncaged. I hugely enjoyed these movies, but there were too many artifacts (due to high compression rate, I guess). The encoding must have been very difficult, I suppose, because there are many scenes taking place in twilight and darkness with sometimes quick movements.
Basically I follow a simple policy: Scorp knows best! 😉
Big thanks for all your efforts and inspirations! 🙂


Hi scorp,
Thanks for being a savior for all these years.
As for this new 720p rips. It is always fine to have 720p rips in smaller size. That is what started this website, where we used to get films with good quality in smaller size. We always have 1080p for those big file with 5.1 audio. People who download can choose with size and quality.


Hi Scorp,

can not open the new multiple files .rar

I tried “unarchiver” and “unrarX” but no chance.

Do you know any solution for that?



Sorry, need to correct: Just TCSyndrom and TDriver72

Hi, Scorp. Wish you good health as well.

Did you think about ADs? Some other film sites are using them. PS, for instance. Quality is better there, because they make 10-bits, but they are doing only new films, with very rare exceptions. There are a lot of good, not so new, films that are hard to find in a decent quality. Very few people, if any, are making such, and among them your rips are probably the best. I guess this niche is scarcely occupied, so you can easily take it.

Twitter adds convenience. Occasionally, more people might see a tweet, it depends on the contents.
