The Digital Millennium Copyright Act expressly makes a crime any ripping of a DVD or other medium that falls under its protections.

This is correct, however, there are other laws that would allow it as Fair Use. Since the DMCA vs the older VHS (I think it was) have not been tried in the Supreme Court yet, we don't really know. One court decision says you can, another law says you can't.

What is clearly not legal however is altering the movie. Copying it, perhaps legal, altering it without permission, definitely not legal.
