Scores upon scores of movies at your fingertips! Hot Movies is like a porn lover's dream in many respects, but it's somewhat of a qualified dream. First off, the design is far from dreamy. It looks rather dated, even if there are enough navigational features that you can't really fault on anything beyond its limited aesthetic appeal.
We are talking about a site with over 160,000 movies, so obviously most of the content isn't exclusive. That isn't to say, however, that everything here is porn you can easily find elsewhere. There is an exclusive section containing 3,085 videos as well as a lot of amateur and fetish titles that are hard to find elsewhere. Also, new titles from Anarchy films and Elegant Angel are released on HotMovies before you can see them anywhere else.
You can search by category, studio or pornstar. You can also choose the kind of performer (male, female, transgender), choose the setting or even find a specific series or director. You can also check out the most popular movies and those that were recently added. The amount and variety of the hardcore is excellent and it continues to grow. There are no photos on the site, but with so many movies that's not such a big deal.
This site, like many other mega-movie sites, is like having an adult video store right on your computer. However, unlike most others, this is a pay-per-view video site, meaning that there is no monthly membership fee. Instead, you sign up for free and buy time when you want to watch movies, which stream in Windows Media and Silverlight with good to great-looking playback. Only those scenes offering a "mega" option hit the top of that range. Some users have complained that the movies are slow to play, but that issue must be in the past because every movie I tried was fine in the highest option.
If you just need a quick five to 10 minutes to take care of things, this pay-as-you-go thing can end up saving you money. Although saving movies to your computer isn't the norm here, there is an option to download certain videos as either Windows Media, MP4 or DivX-formatted AVI files, but you'll have to pay an extra fee to do so. You can also rent scenes and watch them an unlimited number of times over seven or 30 days. There's also the ability to buy it.
Although I was skeptical about the benefits of the pay-to-watch system, it's starting to make sense to me now. It comes down to how much time you are going to spend watching porn online. If you watch a fair amount for lengthy periods, a paid membership site would be more beneficial. However, if you don't watch often or you watch often but for short periods of time, then Hot Movies is a great pay-per-view site that you should check out.
