About one and a half months ago we reported about the new and promising BitTorrent tracker Scenemovies.org. Scenemovies was a gazelle based private tracker which specialized in English movies. A few hours ago, scenemovies changed their name to PassThePopcorn and moved on to the new domain http://www.passthepopcorn.org (old URL www.scenemovies.org is still accessible). There is a notice on the site about name change:
The time has come where we begin our journey into another frontier. Scenemovies.org, the domain, has served us well. However, we find it very important to identify with a name that means something to all of us. Passthepopcorn is a brand. It is whimsical, but strong. If you find it important to use the old domain, you may still do so here: http://www.scenemovies.org/login.php However, we will not be update the source tree for this mirror. It will still interact with the same secure database. Thanks! R.I.P. Scenemovies.org
PassThePopcorn (Scenemovies) is a tracker that registered a rapid growth. As of this moment, the site has over 4500 registered members and over 2000 torrents. Not only that, they’ve constantly been adding cool new features such as the ones mentioned below (list quoted from a news post):
We have implemented a huge amount of features. I will attempt to outline them further and not miss a single one. Wish me luck! 1. IMDB auto-fill extended. 2. Scene Release Name - You can now put the scene release name on the upload upon selecting "scene" check box 3. Actor.php Catalog With over 17000+ actors in our catalog, we are quickly promising to be the largest catalog of actor->movie information out. What does this mean? You will be see a page of all relevant information for this actor. 4. Album Art Coverflow (sorta) Click on the CD icon on torrents.php to see the cover art. Work in Progress! 5. Staff recommendations (yeah? you like it.) 6. Collections RSS Feeds - RSS feeds for each collections and one for all collections. Each torrent that is added to a Collection is added to the Feed. Who doesn't love RSS goodness?!?!
Needless to say that PassThePopcorn has a bright future ahead of them. They are however currently not open for new signups (they were in fact open a while back). If there is an update on their open signup status, we will post it here so stay tuned and keep reading FILEnetworks Blog.
