Pride Movie Pass is a giant archive of DVDs, so you obviously don't get any exclusive content here. Rather than offering them as pay-per-minute vids, they offer a monthly membership that used to offer unlimited downloads (and it still advertises that on the site). However, once I logged in I could only find streaming options.
There are just under 1,100 DVD titles from over 65 major gay porn production houses. Some of the smut on PrideMoviePass looks somewhat dated, with an '80s or '90s look to it, but there are more recent releases too. They've stopped putting date stamps on their updates and they've taken down their countdown clock that marked the time until the next update. I don't take this as a good sign.
You can stream 4,400 full-length scenes, although you're also able to stream them in clips. All in all, you can mostly expect high-def playback from the MP4s that appear on an embedded Flash player. That's actually an improvement from when they came in Windows Media format.
I moved past the circa 1994 hairdos on a couple of dudes to enjoy a DVD covering Montreal's gay nightlife. It focused on one club, but managed to combine bare backing and threesomes. The French accents on some of the studs were a definite plus.
There aren't any pics, just six thumbnails to label each of the scenes and, of course, you can view the front and back of each box. You can browse by performer's name, studio and niche as well as check out the highest-rated scenes and most viewed. You can also create your own list of favorites.
There is a search engine that will comb through the written descriptions as well as the titles or studios to find possible matches. There's a lot of variety covered, from ebony to interracial to bareback to blue collar to fetish. You can browse by what scenes that you and your fellow surfers have rated the highest.
You used to get two bonus movie sites, DVD Movie Pass and Tranny Movie Pass, but these days the links take you to where you can sign up for them (at extra cost) instead of directly to their members' areas. It's just as well, though, because you might not have been all that interested in them anyway if you're just into gay porn.
The content here looks good for the most part and there certainly is enough of it to satisfy most fans. Obviously, it would benefit them to reinstate the download option though, but that isn't really the biggest issue for me. For me, Pride Movie Pass is too pricey for what you're getting.
