    Uploader's Notes:
    The films have been individually ripped and presented so that will fit into 2 CDs. The 5.1 Channel surround sound has been preserved, albeit in Nero AAC

    format, with very little loss in quality. The original frame size has been preserved (after cropping).

    And if someone wonders about the black borders, I have had to add them (or keep them) to preserve the hardcoded subtitles. I have reduced them or eliminated

    them wherever possible (thats why the frame sizes are different for some films).

    Although the video quality of these rips is excellent, If bandwidth isn't an issue, do download the XviD rips uploaded separately. The quality there is even better and

    the original AC3 6 Ch sound has been preserved.
