Another option if you want the movie only is to use MakeMKV to rip the movie (leaving out all the fluff like menus and special features), and then use Handbrake as mentioned above. You can also use a GUI called VidCoder that uses Handbrake for encoding, and it will allow you to easily batch encode your movies.
