My Blu-Ray rips are always taken DIRECTLY from the actual blu-rays, not re-encodings of an earlier h264 torrent, and not "filled in" with web downloads. HEVC is a superb machine, but it should be given quality raw materials.
This is my h265 (HEVC) 10 bit LE 2 pass high quality 1080p rip of the third Lord of the Rings movie, The Return of The King from 2003, taken directly from my blu-ray. This is the extended version, with extra scenes.
I used x265 2.63 to create a VBR in 2 passes, at an average of 2000 and peak of 3200kbps, using the "veryslow" preset, which is the second highest quality setting.
I did not join the two parts; enjoy the movie as originally released, but without the need to change discs!
I think that x265 has done a very good job, creating the movie at a fraction of the original size.
The English, Italiano, Français and Español subtitles are included (soft coded).
Enjoy, and please, please, continue to seed after you have downloaded. Please click on a screenshot to view the full 1920 x 1080 version.
