Third Movies (Updated)
Click here to visit this site
Third Movies is by the same team that produced one of our favourite sites, ZTOD, so I knew that this had the possibility of being a superb site. This time the content is from a different studio, Third Degree, and I am just hoping that the content is up to the high standards that I expect.
The design has almost been copied straight across from ZTOD, but now has a swish black colour scheme to it. The site not only looks superb but also does its job brilliantly. The navigation is so intuitive that you never feel lost and it almost seems to lead you to the content that you want to see.
The support area has a fairly in depth FAQ and also a contact form, but I have to be honest, I was expecting a little bit more and I would have at least like to have seen a ticket support system.
Much the same as ZTOD, the content style is hardcore to the utmost, and if you are a lover of Anal, DP and Cum Shots then Third Movies should provide a nice lot of content for you to enjoy. Due to this you canít exactly call the models on the site amateurs and most of them know exactly what they are doing with the old man meat. There are a good lot of well know porn stars in the mix for you to have a look at, including such names as Angel Dark, Brittney Skye and Sandra Romain.
With regards to searching the site, you get a simple text string search tool through which you can choose to search Titles or Pornstars. There is also an option to search for a specific genre of porn, so if you are specifically into something then this might be a good place to start.
ThirdMovies.com have got a fairly in depth favourites system so that, if you so wish, you are able to add your favourite DVDs, Photo Sets and Models to it. This system is nice and easy to use and I can see it being a real service to people who want to group all of their favourite hardcore action together.
There really arenít loads of extra features, but I'm hoping that the content itself will justify this and really shine through.
When I first navigated my way to the DVD section, I was impressed and pleased to see a great range of well thought out download options. These include: HD MP4 H.264 in 1920x1080(!), 540x720p and 480x360, AVI XVid in 576 x 432, High WMV, and iPod/iPhone formats - as you can see, they have plenty of choice for even the fussiest of porn fans. The H.264 1080 videos might take a while to download but hell, are they worth the wait! If you just want to stream the content then Third Movies havenít left you out in the cold, and have laid on several options; HD H.264 at 480x360, High Res WMV, High and Low Res Flash, and iPod format - these options far surpass those on most movie sites out there at the moment, so they deserve a huge pat on the back!
I must warn you that, as you can imagine, a lot of the video files on this site are pretty gigantic - I even managed to bring the entire office to a grinding halt, sorry boss!
Each of the DVDs has a photo set to go along with it, so if you really enjoy the DVD you can always jump across to the photos for a little bit of still frame fun.
The photos come in a resolution of 900 x 600 which did disappoint me a bit, as after seeing the videos I was hoping for some really impressive super high resolution pictures.
The photo sets offer all of the usual options, such as .zip download and full screen photo navigation as well as a well implemented slide show tool. The other thing that I liked is that from within the set you are able to move to content with a similar genre or content with the same porn stars in it by simply clicking some easy to find text links. In fact the same is true throughout the site and this just makes it so easy to jump to other content that you are likely to enjoy.
As I previously mentioned the full screen photo navigation has a slide show option but on closer inspection I realised that it wasnít your regular slide show. If you leave it to do its stuff, it will not only jump through the pictures at your desired speed, but it will also automatically scroll your browser window up and down so that you are able to see each photo in its entirety without you having to lift a finger.
Another thing that I have not seen before which I really liked was the fact that when you go to browse the thumbnails the site automatically downloads the rest of the pages in the photo set. This means that browsing the thumbnails becomes almost instant and even though it is just a small touch I think it will make a big difference to the way you browse your photos.
