After some time, here is a specialized movie torrent tracker for you BitTorrent fans. FilmBits is a private tracker that indexes untouched DVDs and Blu-Ray disks of latest movies and television shows. Based on SweDVDR’s codebase, FilmbBits boasts a clean look and feel, faster navigation and an overall well organized layout. Note that bulk of the DVDR and Blu Ray releases found on this site are those released for the Nordic region. However, English speaking users need not worry about this factor – almost all of the torrents have English audio & it’s only the optional subtitle streams that are changed based on region. In case you were wondering, most of the DVDR releases found on this tracker conform to PAL standard.
Although you don’t see BitTorrent invite forums being filled with invite requests for FilmBits and their discussion threads overflowing with queries about this tracker, it has in fact done pretty well compared with most other sites (especially newer ones) in its league. FB has so far managed to recruit 1600+ users and at the same time added over 2000 torrents to it’s ever growing index. Although the user count may seem a little low, seeder/leecher activity on torrents is pretty good on this site with most of the torrents having a longer than usual lifetime.
As said above FilmBits is full for DVDR and Blu Ray releases for Nordic region (both movies and TV shows). You won’t find many XViD rips here as the focus is mostly on untouched disks that come complete with multiple subtitle/audio streams, special features, full DVD menus, etc. Uploaded movies/TV shows include both scene and non scene releases. Once again, keep in mind that DVDR for the Nordic region does not mean it comes dubbed with a non English audio stream – it’s usually the optional subtitle streams that are new (you can usually check this on a torrent’s detailed descriptions page) .
One big turn off for English speaking users however would be the site language – it defaults to Norwegian and cannot be changed at any point of time. You’ll be able to find your way without a translator but if worse comes to worse, use the auto translate option in Google Chrome as an aid.
