Video: 24 More Feature-Length Movies to Stream in Self-Isolation

Mar 26, 2020 at 8:58
by James Smurthwaite  
Last week we signposted 16 mountain bike movies you can watch for totally free and this time we're turning to subscription services to get our fix. For some of you these may be free if you take out a month's trial however if you've already done that, you may have to cough up a subscription fee.

The main places to look are Amazon Prime and Echoboom. Echoboom are a subscription service that specialise in action sports movies. Their library is the most full of any service we've found and would be a good place to start if you want to access a wide range of films. Amazon Prime may have a good selection of films but make sure you check before you commit, it has a better selection in some countries than others.

Free Trial/Subscription

A rough, back-of-a-napkin calculation says there are about 1600 minutes of footage between the previous 16 Videos to Binge in Self-Isolation and here. That's over 24 hours worth. Enjoy!


Echoboom

Echoboom is a distributor for action sports films but also runs a streaming service for the films in its library. Your first month is free but after then it's a paid subscription service.

Deathgrip


"Deathgrip is a creative oasis for Brendan Fairclough and Clay Porter - a place where the raw expression of Fairclough’s riding ability is captured with the most progressive filmmaking technology against the backdrop of the most visually engaging locations in the world. The future is now."

Lemonade and Ducktape Stuffs


"Lemonade and Ducktape Stuffs is a film about quitting. Giving up on the everyday routine and having fun. It was time to say farewell to appeasing the masses and check out. It's not easy. Actually it's really hard. That's what makes it right."

Gamble


"Steel City Media and Creative Concept bring you the much anticipated new feature film 'GAMBLE', priding itself on bringing some of Downhill Mountain Biking's most talented and charismatic riders together, outside of the tape, on tracks tailored for madness.

Narrated by the infamous Alan Ford from ‘Snatch’ and ‘Lock, Stock’, the top dogs of downhill have been united round the table once again and they aint here to mess about.

With the chips well and truly on the table, GAMBLE is about to go all in. Stick 50p in any of this lot and watch them go... "

UnReal


"unReal is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren't the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you — the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret — the ones who know the way into the unReal world."

Link to film.

Where the Trail Ends


"The most progressive and ambitious mountain biking ever attempted caught on film in an adventure unlike anything experienced before in breath-taking locations all over the world."

Link to film.

Not Bad


"This is a tale of epic adventure. A tale of seven brave riders who set out from the four corners of the globe to gather together under one roof in a town located at the ends of the earth. A tale with no beginning and no end but where a few things happen in between. Things like eel fights.

Yeah that's right... f'n eel fights. So watch this movie. Why? Because it's 'Not Bad... 30 days of bicycle tomfoolery in New Zealand'."

This film is from us -- the riders.

The Tipping Point


"From the creator of Between The Tape and F1RST comes The Tipping Point, the new film from acclaimed filmmaker Clay Porter. Welcome back to the world of downhill mountain bike racing. A world covered in sweat, perseverance and desire. A world filled with dreamers. A world that was dominated in 2007 by one cunning talent: Australia's Sam Hill. Many in the know thought that Hill had both the speed and mental strength to come into the 2008 World Cup Series fast and leave it devastated and undefeated. Standing in his way was a cast of athletes from around the world that were hungry, poised and ready to take the Australian down. Featuring every round of the 2008 UCI World Cup Series as well as the World Championships and shot anywhere between The United States, Australia, Finland and Canada, The Tipping Point is the sport of downhill mountain bike racing documented. The Tipping Point is a group of characters that inspire, grow and dominate in a world they confidently claim as unique. The Tipping Point is downhill mountain bike racing. "

Ashes to Aggasiz


"It’s a real barnburner. A man at the top of his professional prowess, his mountain bike a natural extension of him, one of the best riders the sport has ever seen. But like all great heroes, adversity comes a knocking. For Graham Agassiz, a relatively benign descent—one he’s done a hundred times before—decided to reach out with its wicked limb and smack him down. Shove a fat slice of humble pie in his face. With his neck broken and a career in jeopardy, the road back to the top comes with dangers and demons along the way. "

Amazon Prime
The following films are free to watch in some countries on Amazon Prime. If they are not free in your territory you may have to take out a free trial or subscription to Echoboom Sports (see above).

Klunkers


"Using archival footage, still photographs, and interviews, KLUNKERZ tells the story of the earliest days of mountain biking, from those who were there. Some of the biggest names in the industry, as well as some more obscure characters, recount the people and events that gave birth to the modern mountain bike."

 Deathgrip has gotta be one of the best mtb movies ever. The cinematography, riding, and music is just so good. Never gets old.

 Unreal is really fun and great riding / landscapes.
Gamble is best of recent films. Has an Earthed 3 vibe which is cool.
I quite like the DH adventure films, Chasing the Yeti and on Red Bull, North By Nightfall, Riding the Tatsenshini , Following the Fraser.

But Seasons.. come on best ever
(Strength in Numbers a natural successor - its like Seasons half a decade on)

 Everyone has their favourites of course. If I may though ask for a moment to advocate for Seasons here a little.

IMHO Seasons is still one of the best, most well crafted documentaries of what it means to be "a mountain biker"; Seasons manages to distil that through of the quality of the movie's storytelling. It masterfully takes you behind what is going on mentally, on many levels, with of each of the riders; each of whose story is genuinely unique, and blends that in with the footage and music to near perfection.

Very few movies have managed to do that as well as the Collective achieved in Seasons in my opinion. (Opinions will of course vary and there should be room for a wide variety of those.)

The depth of that storytelling, for me at least, is what made Seasons not only a stand out movie in 2008, it continues to be one of the best ever, even more than a decade later.

I mean what other movie has made a man in a wet-suit throwing himself into a freezing cold lake such gripping watching? Seasons achieved that... there's storytelling right there!

Thanks for reading.

 @orientdave: I watched Seasons on DVD so many times it stopped working from the tiny scratches!!! I used to make my wife and friends watch it thinking it would suck them in and make them love biking as much as I do... Turns out it doesn’t inspire the civilian population the way it does us, LOL!

 @orientdave: Seasons is, in a word, a masterpiece. When i saw it the first time my jaw hit the floor. One may argue about the adrenaline kick compared to other films, but in terms of beauty it was unmatched, and still hard to beat.

Earthed 3, which is obviously the best vid of all time, is on youtube.
To me, this is the standard against which every other bike movie is judged. To this day the riding is sick.

 Ride to the Hills was one of, if not THE, favorite movie for me. Great shots, great music. And it aged quite good.

The cynic in me says it's because it's not affiliated with Amazon/Red Bull/Echoboom, but I guess that's why we have comment sections Big Grin
