Summary
In all probability this is one of the best movie collections on the internet, given that you prefer Porn Star Movies instead of Amateur movies. There is nothing bad to say about this site, however, the payment method which is different to any other site weíve looked at, means that you pay for what you download. So although it is one of the biggest movie collections around, if you want to download them all, its going to cost ya! Put bluntly, if this site had a flat monthly fee, and you could download as much as you like, it would be a top 10 site. As it is, it could be a costly site to use, and there are better collections out there in terms of what you get for your money.

General
Celebrity Movie Archives has had some good reviews at some other review sites. They contacted us to ask us to review their collection, so it was with some high hopes we took a look at what is being described as the best Celeb site around. And its quite easy to see why. Loads and loads of content (see content section below), outstandingly produced in terms of information, layout, and interesting facts, nice big clear thumb shots of each and every movie, and good fast downloads add up to a superb website. Iím impressed already and I havenít even downloaded a movie yet. This site does not have a flat membership fee. Its uses a Ďcreditsí system, which means you pay for what you download. For example 1000MB (1GB) of downloaded movies will cost you $19.95. If you go beyond this, you simply purchase more credits. This may be a good system to control membership downloads, but some people may be put off by this. Our advice is donít be. $20 will get you 10 x 100MB movies. This is quite a lot of footage.

Content
As soon as you enter the members area, you know this is a big site. Stats at the top of the page, presumably written in some kind of cgi scripting tells us the site features 1,560 celebs, 6,900 movies, totalling 82.6 GB of content lasting 120 hours. The site is fully searchable, by model name, description keyword, or filename. This makes finding a movie in a particular niche very easy indeed. Each movie has a big clear picture taking four shots from the movie stitched together. On each movie page is lots of stats, telling you how many times the movie has been download, how big it is, how long it lasts and what it is about. I liked the way this was done, it is clear and concise and you know exactly what your downloading before you actually do it. Given that many of these movies are 100MB+ this is very useful.

Video Section
This site is of course a movie site, so this section is what it is all about. Quite simply, this is an outstanding movie collection. You only have to look at the figures above, and you know youíre in for a real good time inside this members area. The only thing I noticed when downloading a lot of the clips are many seem to be truncated movies, i.e. they are short clips from complete movies, with some of the footage cute. This happened with several movies I looked at, but I may have just been unlucky in my choices. However donít let this distract from the fact, this is still a superb collection.

Updates
In a first for a movie site that I have ever seen, the guys who run this site are adding up to 10 new movies a day. Quite a feat by any standards. However, given that the method of payment differs from most other paysites, in that you pay for what you download, it is in the interests of the owners to add as much as possible. But it is nice to have the choice anyway.
