There are many BitTorrent trackers up and about that cater for rare and obscure movies. A few examples of such sites would be Cinematik, Secret Cinema, Karagarga and Gormogon. Although not talked about a lot, one of the newcomers into this particular niche is I Love Classics (ILC). Well, it’s not exactly a brand new site as the tracker’s almost an year old. The important fact is that ILC has continued to grow at a steady pace throughout the past twelve or so months and has now evolved into a tracker that indexes over 10000 movies. If you are a fan of classic, rare, obscure, hard to find movies & TV shows, I Love Classics could be what you are looking for. This site is currently open for registrations but this is bound to change with their upcoming first anniversary. The tracker going invite only and becoming a closed community will be preceded by a week long site-wide free leech period.
It’s not easy for classic movie/TV trackers to add new content – as you may know majority of indexed torrents in most private trackers are scene releases. Although the scene pres a lot of new movies and TV shows, releases of classic content are not-so-common and infrequent. Therefore, torrent trackers (or DDL forums) that specialize in these areas have to index a lot of P2P originated content, home encodes and user submitted stuff in order to grow. So far, ILC has handled this daunting task pretty well. Currently there are over 12000 indexed torrents – and a lot of them unique to ILC.
Type of content you can find on I Love Classics include both movies and TV shows. Don’t expect to find latest films such as Kick Ass or Iron Man 2 here :p . However you will be able to download a lot of retro flicks from the 1910s, 1920s, 1970s and so on. A lot of full season torrents of classic TV series are also available. Movies and TV shows are available in different video qualities – these range from TVRips, DVDRips to even Blu Ray rips. A screenshot capturing part of ILC’s torrent index may be found here:
Ever since it’s launch ILC has been open to the public so getting into the site was not a problem. However according to administrators this will soon change with the tracker’s upcoming 1st anniversary. Apart from going invite only, several new rules to crack down on inactive users and collectors will also be introduced:
Notice to all Members
After the coming free leech, ILC will stop being open sign-up and go invitation only.
The staff will then start deleting accounts of all members that:
- Stop their torrents upon completion (hit and run).
- Continually ignore re-seed requests.
- Don't seed any torrents, except 3 temporarily to allow a new download.
- Accounts where the person has never downloaded a torrent, and not visited the site for 3 months or more. Both have to be true (downloaded AND visited) for these accounts to be deleted. If you've visited the site within the last 3 months, but never downloaded anything, your account is safe.
If you fall into one of those categories above, consider this your first and only warning. If you value your account here, this is your last chance to change your ways. If you don't, your account will be deleted and you'll never get back into this site again.
After this time, all remaining members (the sharers) will get a few invites given to them.
12,000 Torrents Birthday Celebration
To celebrate ILC's 1 year birthday and the uploading of our 12,000th torrent, everything on site will be free-leech. This will start on the 21st of May 11.59PM GMT and end on the 28th of May 11.59PM GMT.
If you still aren’t a member of this tracker (we have featured this site in the past), now would be a great sign up for an account. The site’s max user limit is set to 5000 and currently there are 3800+ registered members (roughly 1200 slots left). The upcoming free leech should help you get a head start by helping boost your ratio.
