Backup or rip "Bullet to the Head" Blu-ray/DVD on Mac for personal entertainment

An easy solution to backup "Blu-ray Bullet to the Head" to Mac HDD, so that you can watch it on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, TV and other devices together with your friends.

Lights go down, and the movie opens up with an odd sequence of a bullet being shot towards the audience and shattering the various studio logos. It then transitions into an out of context scene from later in the movie, in black and white. It left a bad taste immediately, feeling clumsy and odd. Bullet To The Head” is directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors) and stars Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang, Sarah Shahi, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Jason Momoa.

My best friend loves this movie very much. We have already bought a Blu-ray and DVD disc of the movie. We found interactions fairly surprising that we want to keep the precious moment forever, then we can get them playable for personal entertainment anytime and anywhere.

As we know, most commercial Blu-rays/DVD are protected, "Bullet to the Head" is no exception. So we cannot move it to other devices directly. If you want to do so, you’ll have to roll off BD/DVD disc protection and convert the clean Blu-ray/DVD to suitable format for playback.

Among all the software applications, free or paid, Pavtube BDMagic for Mac is my first choice for two reasons. One is its easy-to-use feature with user friendly interface; another is its reasonable price and lifetime support. They also have a Windows version ripper, see this Pavtube BDMagic.

Mac Workflow: Backup or rip "Bullet to the Head" Blu-ray/DVD for personal entertainment

Note: Firstly you need to get an external Blu-ray drive, otherwise your computer will not recognize it as most built-in drive only works on DVD.

1. Plug Blu-ray drive to Mac computer, insert Blu-ray/DVD disc and launch Pavtube. See the disc-like icon on the top? Click it and you will see your disc name inside, hit it.

It seems this ripper breaks movie protection during the loading process, because once I took my laptop to kitchen where’s no signal, the program refused to take any of my discs. In case of that, pls ensure your Internet connection is OK.

2. Choose MP4/AVI format for playback.

There’re lots of preset inside “Format” list. I prefer "H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)" from "HD Video"  option as it’s widely accepted by most devices, like our iPhones, iPads, PC, or Android device.


You can also hit “HD Video> AVI HD Video(*.avi)” for watching Blu-ray/DVD on TV.

3. Convert Blu-ray/DVD movie on Mac for personal entertainment

Just hit the big “Convert”, now you can leave it working and do your own things. Oh don’t forget to cancel your computer auto-sleep mode. Wait for moments, click “Open” or “Open output folder” to find the converted MP4/AVI files.

Ok it’s done! Transfer converted video to iPad, iPhone, TV or other devices and enjoy your time watching "Bullet to the Head" with friends.

Review for this movie:

Stallone’s and Kang’s interactions are fairly surprising. Going in, I expected something akin to “two buddies fight the bad guys”. Except, Stallone’s character despises cops, and is basically an awful person. They sabotage each other with subtlety, which makes for some interesting sequences and arguably best parts of the movie.

The best thing about this movie is that it knows exactly what it is. It’s the movie you’ll pick up at a discount rack, and have a good time with, which could also be the worst thing about it. It’s not incredibly memorable, and fairly forgettable. There isn’t a stand out sequence, just a couple of generic shoot outs and fights. Also, for a movie called “Bullet To The Head”, there are a lot of gratuitous scenes of bodies being shot up in every place but the head.

“Bullet To The Head” has the right to exist. It’s B level, but not schlocky. It has some tension, but it isn’t painfully self serious. At worst it’s flat and boring, at best it’s a perfectly enjoyable average action movie.

“I am a medical device designer and I really don’t have a hobby, other than my movie collection. I enjoy watching DVD movies on my TV without any editing. I originally saw the reviews of Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate on Giveaway of the Day. I have used Aiseesoft Total Video Converter Platinum, but I choose to purchase the converter because of the price, good reviews, especially the conversion speed and ease of using. The only one tiny complaint is about the AMD and CUDA, I am not sure which one I need for my computer to speed up the ripping and conversion process. Anyway, the software does an excellent job of converting and I really like it very much!”

If you want to convert DVD to TV as the customer, the only thing you need to is find a good DVD to TV converter. However, when searching on the Internet for the DVD to TV converter, you can find a lot, but not all of them can really help you copy and convert DVD to TV, you need to polish your eyes to distinguish which one is the best one that you need.
