    Brilliant, Jon!

    You don’t get nearly enough praise for the work you do. Tracking down all these rare films, looking for the best quality, sometimes subbing them yourself, it’s a lot of time and effort, I hope people who visit this site can appreciate that and applaud you for the blood you pour into this site.
