rarefilmm is back online!

 

Hi everyone!!!!!!!!

Hope you guys (and girls) are doing well and staying safe, man, what a crazy year it’s been huh? And that thing still exists?! ugh, please, go away already!

I’m so happy to be back here with you all, sorry it took so long to bring the site back to life, all the re-uploading took a lot longer than I expected, what caused the huge delay was basically that I didn’t have a good backup for over 1000 films so I had to re-download all of them from uloz and well as you guys know it takes a long ass time to download every film, you can’t download more than 1 at the time either so yeah, waiting till everything was downloaded was worse than watching paint dry (still not everything has been re-uploaded for streaming, keep reading) but most films are back up, including all the HD titles, all the Oscar winner/nominated films, all the ones that won big awards and all the best rated ones, also, since I made you guys wait for so long I added about 300 new titles which are already on the site and you can start watching now, I made sure to make a good selection with a little bit of everything, hope you guys like what I picked. About what I said about not every film available for streaming yet, I have changed links for over 1000 films already and all those are available to stream but not the whole catalog yet, for those where you’ll see the “This video has been blocked…” message just make a comment on that specific movie and I will add the streaming option asap, please allow up to 24 hours for this (usually it will be just few hours or less). Also, you’ll notice that some of the old uploads are not streaming from okru but from a different site, there is probably going to be some slower loading times for those depending on your internet connection but they should work fine, also, I noticed that they play better if you use Opera instead of Chrome for example, don’t know for other browsers, if you have any issues related to this please let me know and I’ll look into it but like I said, I tested them with several different people on different devices and nobody reported any issues.

The Index has been updated accordingly with all the new additions, taking the total amount of films available on the site to a whooping 2045, not bad huh? I will continue adding more and more films every month as usual so that number is only going to go up. Now, you will probably notice that there’s a lot of films that used to be available here that are now missing, where did all those films go? well, unfortunately I had to take them down, the reason for this like I explain at the bottom of the Requests page is just for “safety” to prevent more issues and more takedowns, if you were able to download some of those films consider yourself lucky because they’re not coming back, at least for the time being. This change will considerably reduce the amount of films that can be requested and added on the site for sure but don’t be sad about it, there’s still A TON of other films you can request and I’ll be more than happy to upload for you guys, after all, this site is just for RARE films, right? 🙂

I have also updated the Wanted films list, adding several new films there that I’d love to find, if you have rare films in your collection please take a look at it, chances are you might have some from this list, none of them are easy to find but I feel a lot of these films are ‘out there’, and not lost, if you don’t have them but you have a lead on where I could find them or who I could contact to ask for them please let me know, I’d really appreciate that.

Thank you so much for the incredible support and for hanging in there waiting for rarefilmm’s return for so long, it means the world to me, hopefully the wait was worth it 🙂

Wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. We have faith in you 2021, don’t dissapoint us!

Happy viewing!!

– Jon.

    Hey Jon, we are a big community supporting you, I would have liked to share it on Twitter but I had found out other ways and I will keep doing it, even though it will be hard to choose which movies to watch and then I eventually might give up. Just kidding.

    Go on with all your good stuff, Federico

    It’s Christmas Day and this is the one thing I really wanted. I’m so so pleased the site (and you) are back, Jon.

    I would wake up and often this would be the first side I’d go to. Seeing new additions never stopped being exciting. You’v led me to so many great, rare films and all because it’s your passion.

    Rarefilmm genuinely makes my life better. Welcome home, Jon!

    Merry Christmas,

    Your friend

    JON W as in WOW !!!! You are a champion. Not many people can rally back after such a rotten set back. It hurts even more when someone goes out of their way to do it as well. Jon your site as ever has so many gems, many of which are new to me and I’ve seen tons of indies, docs, foreign and pre codes believe me. It is so awesome to have you back again. I’ve attached an address from Internet Archive for the film Death in Small Doses from 1957. Speed taking truckers amp up the highway mayhem . Kind of like Reefer madness for the 18 wheeler set. https://archive.org/details/rog561b_netzero_206. By the way do you know the website Reviviendo Viejas Joyas ?
    Peace, love and keep up the amazing work.

    So glad that you could manage to rebuild your “rare film” spot again, and it is a rare place to be ( that I discover by searching a rare film not seing. anywhere “Salto nel vuoto” by Marco Bellochio 1980, in 2019, and it was a discovery your site.
    Si I take a look time to time, if there is some news.
    And that’s it. Here we are. Rare film is on board again, and it is a gem, Only for cinema lovers curious about cinema from all countries, in his original language, and passionate.
    I cross my fingers..

    Bravo for your work and your passion, and I tell you, there is some film we want to watch again maybe, and some we are going to discover.
