Continuing a trend that started to take hold in late 2009 with the release of Progression via both DVD and internet download, Bouldering.com has added a nice assortment of climbing movies to their Video On Demand section.
For a greatly reduced price you can download movies right to your computer, most in a really nice HD quality. Among the titles available for download are Continuum Project ($14.95), Perfecto ($9.99), Pure ($14.99), and Spray ($9.99).
Thanks to Chuck Fryberger I was able to download a copy of Pure, and the process was smooth and relatively quick given the nearly 2 GB file size. The movie itself looks great, and since I thought it was worth purchasing the DVD at $30 when it was first released I think it’s fair to say that $15 is a pretty good deal.
In related news, Satisfaction, a movie that features Jon Glassberg and Nate Draughn “climbing some of the classics that Boone and the Southeast has to offer as well as some ridiculous antics and quite a compelling storyline” is available as a standard definition download for a reasonable $8.99. To quote Glassberg, “Its 2010 people! DIGITAL!”
