    Yes I have heard about ripping it and getting that application, I would rip it but I need a drive, which is something I cannot afford, thus is there a way to rip blu-ray films without a external drive/player on a Mac book OSX and 10.6.8:confused:

    True but I can't spend $50 for a player because of one film :(

    If you want to just watch on the mac, you can simply use BluRay player - from this site:
    http://www.macblurayplayer.com/

    The software works except for the bluray menu's don't work right (meaning you don't get the animations, etc) - you just can select chapters, etc without all the bluray menu fluff.

    You just need a USB/ESATA bluray drive and it will work great. I have an external LG bluray disc writer that works flawlessly. You can also rip blurays using MakeMKV - which is still in beta - then simply use handbrake to open the MKV file generated and convert it to an MP4 video. The mac bluray player will also play bluray native files.

    You could buy one and return it, if possible a day later.
