Crop And Save
The roots of Alura Jenson
I was prepared to feed this video into my Amazon CD/DVD shredder, but the great MILF Alura Jenson saved the critter's bacon. Sporting dark brown hair rather than her trademark blonde look, the Amazonian star perks up an otherwise very crummy set of vignettes.
She has buxom little Megan Foxx as her kid, endeavoring to get her ready for dating after Megan expresses disinterest in the male of the species. They get topless while going to work on the dick of a shlub named Gianni (who reappears in another segment as an overage pizza boy), resulting in a cum-in-your-mouth finale.
Making this entertaining is Alura's trademark snappy patter, always having something amusing to say while toiling as a screen sex worker. That only makes the other scenes seem deadly dull by comparison.
This volume of the Devil's Film series avoids casting any big names (Alura was an unknown when it was shot), and most notable performers are Syren De Mer, Kiki Daire and Alia Janine. Alia, her huge, floppy natural breasts threatening to fill the frame, is oddly teamed with hardly a kid Bonnie Rotten, which sounds sexy on paper but is lousy thanks to the impossibility of suspending disbelief and considering Bonnie to be a virgin.
Bad Girls (2009)
Worse than RD's rom-coms
Sam & Joone frittered away their immense "Pirates" success with junk like this produced in its wake, before unloading the venerable Digital Playground label to some international porn conglomerate.
Here we have Robby D. wasting his and our time with an all-sex junker indistinguishable from thousands of others, like the contemporaneous work of B. Skow or Jules Jordan. Five beauties appear separately and pose for the camera, maybe schmooze with an off-screen interviewer, and hump one of the usual overworked Chatsworth-based studs. There's nothing "Bad" about them, except perhaps displaying bad judgment about which videos they sign up to appear in.
Stoya gets lousy billing even though she is the most distinctive of the lot, while Kelly Summer and Serena Del Rio provide some diversity for the generally lily-white label.
Budapest Episode 6 (2011)
Dull, nearly incomprehensible episode
Girlfriends Films' trip to Hungary to take advantage of the vast local talent pool comes a cropper in this episode of the series, midway through the franchise's run.
We get the four requisite sex scenes starring Euro beauties plus visiting USA icon Elexis Monroe, but the scene set-ups are extremely poor. Elexis seems at a loss for words (in this improvised script debacle) and what the co-stars have to say is unintelligible with their thick accents and halting English. At one point I perceived a dramatic rift between two sisters, but the younger one had nothing to say at all, perhaps unable to comprehend or speak English.
So we're left with bland, deadly dull Sapphic couplngs involving many a familiar face and body to fans of Euro porn. Certainly there are worse things than gazing at buxom Zafira or lovely young Dorothy Black (recently terrific starring in a Marc Dorcel lesbian opus "Madam Eva and Her Girls"). But like Monroe, they are all better performers in other videos.
Porn Valley (2007)
Inside look with excess of "rah-rah for our team" sensibility
Porn director and his regular screenwriter Jennifer Allison overdo the blatant proselytizing in favor of porn as free expression in this otherwise pleasant enough Wicked Pictures vehicle for endearing star Kaylani Lei.
Voicing over much of the story's exposition and point-of-view, Lei portrays a young girl in L.A. on the rebound from a failed relationship with Evan Stone, who turns out to be a sex addict typical of the internet age in his fondness for sexual chat rooms and on-line pornography.
Urged by her BFF Mindy (a nice supporting performance unfortunately not earning the actress a screen credit, as NonSex Roles here get no Wicked respect) to get back into the dating pool, Kaylani herself goes on line and not surprisingly attracts numerous potential beaus, settling upon Barrett Blade, who turns out to be a porn director.
But Kaylani keeps an open mind, despite her misgivings about the Adult Industry, and the film segues into illustrative defense of Blade's profession and life style. He hangs out almost exclusively with Industry types, shown in a poker game loaded with cameos, of whom only Fred Lincoln and Alex Sanders were immediately recognizable to me (again, no help from the skimpy on-screen credits), and even takes Kaylani to a strip club where he lays down the law with a diva of a stripper (Devon Lee, nude dancing quite impressively, but not getting any credit from Wicked brass) who won't make films with him unless she's always the star.
Lei concludes that porn people are just like "regular people" and there's nothing wrong or harmful about how they choose to make a living. Raven can't resist a cutesy ending, in which after lover Blade deposits his money shot on Lei's kisser, we hear the director (presumably Raven himself) yell "And cut!", directly repeating the Blade shout at the end of a torrid Carmel Moore/Marco Banderas sex scene he shot with Kaylani in attendance to see how it's done. The inside-out reference here to the fact that Kaylani is a porn star merely playing Little Miss Innocent is hardly subtle.
Sex scenes are arousing, and cancel out the heavy-handed message of such a trivial movie.
The Predator (2007)
Unusual, innovative Stormy Daniels feature
This all-girl-sex thriller by (and with) filmmaker Stormy Daniels is an impressive creation, which Wicked Pictures afforded two sequels. It finds the blonde bombshell in the unlikely but juicy role of a Lesbian sexual predator, spending her nights out on the town kidnapping and abusing young women.
It's a testament to Stormy's appeal that she makes such an odd motion picture vehicle not only palatable but quite engrossing. My only quarrel with the finished product is that cinematographers Francois Clousot and her mentor Michael Raven opted for a soft-focus camera style, unfortunately distancing the action.
Though a couple of men pop up in extra roles, including production manager Mark Nicholson, the all-female principal cast is excellent, with a variety of top players including Stormy's fellow Wicked contract star Alektra Blue and uninhibited big names like Jenna Haze and Tory Lane. Stormy informs us in the "Making of" featurette that her main subtext was having her character behave the way men do in picking up girls, with specific scenes taking off on the "offering a ride to damsel with car trouble", "picking up a girl in a bar who's just split from her boyfriend", a casting couch scenario, etc. With larger than life beauty Stormy as the bad guy in each situation, these vignettes play out with fresh vigor.
Mother Lovers Society 4 (2011)
Intricate drama revives an overdone theme
Nica Noelle does a fabulous job with this dramatic soap opera, taking the tired porn concept of mother/daughter sexual relations and breathing fresh life into it.
She even manages to weave herself into the cast, playing a psychotherapist she previously created for Girlfriends Films.
Darla Crane and Magdalene St. Michaels star as middle-aged roommates, latter still trying to get over the betrayal by her young lover Kasey, who split over a year ago. Nica creates and sustains suspense very cleverly by having the central character of her screenplay, Kasey, never appear in the feature, not even flashbacks. I kept waiting for her to make the scene, perhaps in the form of actress Kaci Starr, who appeared in another Sweetheart release directed by Noelle around this time, "Legends & Starlets 5".
Carefully connecting the various characters in unusual ways, we learn that Kasey's real mom Kate Kastle has a petite young lover about Kasey's age, well-played by jail-bait newcomer Diem Moore, and that Kasey has been acting out her resentment about being abandoned by her mother, preying on older women including both St. Michaels and icon of the genre Erica Lauren, quite incisive in a NonSex Role.
Meanwhile, Maggie has taken up with a beautiful lesbian in her thirties, Madison Young, yet has sex in the movie's first vignette with busty roommate Darla Crane. Darla's daughter, the big-natural-bust starlet Alia Starr, comes home from college on vacation, and Maggie's yearning for her results in an extra sex scene in the mix, her masturbating with images of Alia dancing through her daydreams.
Alia lets Madison know, while Maggie's away, that the older woman has made a habit of serial love affairs with young girls, and Nica herself, playing Dr. Syndi Ellis (her old stage name) gets a phone call from Maggie seeking professional help from this expert in sex addiction. An expertise that is not entirely theatrical or professional, as after hanging up Nica coincidentally has sex with her gal pal, none other than Alia!
This fascinating roundelay of older/younger Sapphic liaisons, with mothers like Crane and Kastle figuring prominently holds the viewer right through the final sex scene (involving Darla and Madison, and is quite satisfying for fans of this particular genre.
Playgirl: Without Restraint (2009)
Skye's the limit
Skye Blue excels in this romantic format, and even shows us (and the cast) how it's done in an interesting BTS short subject (she acts out all the movements and stances for the talent, resulting in comic moment with shy, star-struck big galut CJ Wright, awed in the presence of a porn legend).
CJ's scene is effective IR content, humping away on busty Krissy Lynn. Skye also stages a black-on-black encounter, giving the starlet Rane Revere (who had a few nice assignments in girl/girl format over at Girlfriends Films) a chance to handle the big dick of another legend, Sean Michaels.
Blonde on blonde lesbian sex matches two physically contrasting femmes: Nikita Von James and Lux Cassidy. Pure romance occurs in "Pop!", the sound of a champagne cork in action, as Aaron Wilcoxxx gets to service busty Holly Heart.
Great ladies wasted
Penthouse Video has had a way of hiring the best talent around, and then squandering it by creating mindless, empty 90-minute porn vehicles. Under the Penthouse Variations sub-label, this is one of them.
The bait and switch is on, by having Dyanna Lauren as hostess for the show introducing each vignette and cracking a whip, but never getting involved in the sex action (or even disrobing).
The ladies who do perform are a striking bunch, with big-busters Jacky Joy, Jewels Jade, Jenna Presley and Charley Chase visually diverting at least. Ann Marie Rios picks up the acting slack, almost poignant in her brief (before devolving into XXX land) dramatic scene opposite Rocco Reed.
The Senator's Secret (2018)
Disappointing Oiler by Blade
The distasteful (and cornball) antics of corrupt masseurs continue in this Bree Mills/Barrett Blade concoction of low-brow massage porn.
Title 2-parter suffers mightily from absence of a screenwriter, as it makes no sense -just lots of sex filler spotlighting the top-heavy leading lady. She plays Senator Olivia Austin, getting oiled up and humped by Eric Masterson, and then improbably phoning him to make a plane trip to service her back home in her district as long-distance outcall. The gimmick of him taping her clandestinely (as do all the masseurs in this repetitive series) at his salon balanced with her using a hidden camera to tape him servicing her on the couch in her office is idiotic.
The other 3 segments are even less palatable; a nasty scene of masseur Steven St. Croix deflowering virgin (that's a laugh) Cadence Lux and then blackmailing him with the CCTV footage; an incest vignette in which Anastasia Rose after yoga insists on calling step-dad Romeo Price "daddy" over and over as she humps him; and Haley Banks bamboozled by St. Croix about finding her a lawyer so that he can have sex with her on the massage table, also playing on the nasty side.
A Perfect Mix (2017)
Routine but sexy IR content from Skye
Alexa Grace emerges as the saving grace of this trifling romance for Adam & Eve Pictures by veteran director Skye Blue. I suspect it plays well, shorn of XXX footage, on late-night pay cable but is a softie in its integral original hardcore form.
I have always referred to interracial sex in theatrical porn as "mixed-combo", the term popular back in the day, and that is the "Mix" of its title. Every sex scene is IR with a balance of Black women in the cast, though today's gonzo popularity of IR seems to be exclusively slanted toward casting of BBC's opposite petite white actresses.
Grace stars as a successful blogger who's angling to have her sex-oriented novel published, using her interactions from the blog as material. Central conflict, which gives way to sex a bit clumsily later in the show, pits Grace against egotistical misogynist Ricky Johnson, who writes male-supremacist articles for a magazine run by Aaron Wilcoxxx.
The uncredited screenplay awkwardly knits the characters together to avoid collapsing into the more usual (and simpler) separate vignettes format of today's porn content, but the individual sex scenes are played well enough to command one's attention. Misty Stone's acting is exemplary as always, and starlet Nina North (an Abella Danger type) makes a good impression.
Cameo appearance here for the fabulous "Immoral Proposal" mansion, its spiral staircase seen briefly in the background in a scene when drunken Ricky visits Grace and passes out in the foyer.
School of Hard Knockers (2003)
Dumb schoolgirl porn skits
Apparently the debut feature of director Daniel Dakota, more famous later as a journeyman director for Adam & Eve, his first in a big-bust series offers just that, big breasts and little more.
Gimmick is that the ladies are dressed up as school-girls, even seasoned performers, though Lisa Sparxxx is thankfully cast as a teacher, her chances of passing for a co-ed being nil. The title pun is actually apt, probably unintentionally, as these gals have those big fake tits rather than the floppy naturals which have more recently returned to favor among fans.
The dialog is barely existent here, with cut-to-the-chase being the norm. It's low-budget junk for a no-name porn label, and even the male cast lacks the usual prominent talent most often seen during this period (think Hatcher, Spears, Cannon or one of the Stones).
Naughty Nannies (2013)
Light-hearted sex comedy from a master
I watched this Jonathan Morgan trifle right after viewing him during his comic heyday (1993) starring in the forgettable "The Mistress". He has a way with frivilous humor in a sexual setting, though otherwise this is one of Wicked's more ephemeral releases.
Exception is one wonderful vignette, not classic but definitely worth seeing. Kendra Lust, arguably the supreme MILF in modern porn, plays a stylishly dressed nanny for overage teen Tyler Nixon (the other nannies in the cast are carrying after unseen but frequently crying -on the soundtrack- infants). She emerges as the eminent porn equivalent to those 1980s breakthrough "Older Women" in mainstream sex comedies played by Sylvia Kristel or Joan Collins.
He's going out on a date and plans to go "all the way" with his willing girl friend, and needs mentoring post-haste. Kendra is delightful at resisting Tyler's insistent requests for sexual demonstrations, but bangs away wholeheartedly once the seduction takes hold.
The rest of the cast is less able to raise their roles beyond sex for pay, with Cindy Starfall playing too broadly as the bespectacled, horny Oriental nanny humping her grumpy employer Richie Calhoun, while Ash Hollywood is stuck with the corniest of porn cliches, humping the muscular pool boy AJ Cummings.
Best comic moment comes when young Dillion Harper finds a dildo in the bed clothes and summarily tosses the baby (literally) in its bassinet away across the room so she can get down to some serious masturbation. She is caught in the act by the infant's returning early parents, cuing an instant threesome with Ryan McLane and nice-to-see-her-still-working sexpot Tory Lane.
The Mistress (1993)
The usual porn parody from the Cashman
You don't need credits to recognize a Cash Markman script at work here: endless self-referential details to his notion of the motion picture industy, as cliched in its attempts at humor as any random Captain Obvious tv commercial for hotel booking.
Jonathan Morgan is effective as the failing telemarketer/con artist who is given a chance to have an ancient screenplay of his (titled "The Porcupine Man") produce via the equally con man-styled producer played effectively by Steve Austin (in a major but NonSex co-starring role).
I watched it, vaguely amused, until reading in IMDb that it was just a porn spoof/ripoff of an extremely obscure (now) mainstream movie by this title released the year before, starring Robert Wuhl and Martin Landau. This is a case of seeing the porn ripoff and being able to permanently skip seeing the original.
Much name-dropping and in-joking propels the overwritten, dialog-heavy script, as our non-dynamic duo interest three investors in the lousy project, each insisting on sponsoring a girlfriend (title mistresses) for a role in the picture. Everyone assembles near the end of the film (shot on video) so I expected a usual orgy, but instead the financing falls apart and very cornily the project is re-sold as a porn picture for director Frank Marino -the director of this video of course.
Among the knowing jokes are name-dropping Spielberg as desired director, though of course writer (Morgan as surrogate Marc Cushman/Cash Markman) wants to direct to protect his writing; and plugging of earlier hits by the producer: "Titty Titty Bang Bang" and "Plan 69 from Outer Space" (latter an actual video by director Frank Marino which I've seeen and isn't half bad).
Porcupine Man is itself a spoof of the tortured anti-Super Hero, a bit prescient in how cinema has gone crazy for such material a couple of decades later, right down to Deadpool and Ant-Man. Quite repetitive is Cash's hammering away at how Hollywood insists on changing and ruining one's script, though in his case it is hard to imagine how any of his 1000 or so screenplays (or videoplays which they really are) could have been damaged given their humble beginnings.
Promising new Dorcel series in the wall-to-wall sex mode
Director Herve Bodilis is quite eloquent in the "Making of" featurette explaining the origins and aims of this new series for Dorcel, bringing the label's unique sense of glamour to what could cruelly be categorized into the gonzo bin.
The atmospheric red-decor interior of an actual Parisian club is the backdrop for almost nonstop sex action, doled out with a lengthy (for Dorcel) 2-hour running time. The premise is that libertine femmes go there to be serviced, getting anonymous sex with persons of either gender -letting go. Bodilis has special cameras and lighting to record the XXX scenes with the limited editing approach of freewheeling gonzo filmmakers.
Casting extreme beauties like Anissa Kate and Valentina Nappi, and dolling them up with great makeup and sexy lingerie or fetish gear raises this above the generic sex footage of the competition, and very arousing newcomers like busty Katrina Moreno and Russian blonde Kitana Lure make for a strong intro to the new video line.
The "Making of" spotlights two other actresses who promise to be even better in the next edition: Liza Del Sierra and Angel Carol.
Can't get enough of Koxxx
Ava Koxxx continues to impress me, as the tall, busty lass from the British Isles manages to stay under the porn radar in another of her hot assignments. She's teamed with even more fake looking Brit Porn icon Tiffany Kingston in a threesome with a noisy neighbor who looked to me like Markus Dupree, though the males in this DVD go largely uncredited.
Though issued by a label name Guilty Desire, this is clearly a Hungarian production related to the venerable DDF team that releases the DD Busty line. Evidence of that is a lengthy scene set in a wood-paneled sauna, the trademark location for so much DDF porn. Speaking in their native Spanish, Amber Nevada and redhead Amarna Miller have a Sapphic bout before being joined there by a stud (looks like Markus again) for a hot threesome in which Amber carefully avoids any boy/girl action with the stud via careful sexual choreography.
Ivana Sugar gets d.p.'d by two studs of her own, while the trio format continues with David Perry manfully taking on two lovelies at once.
Sexual Healing (2018)
Wishful thinking porn blows hot and cold
Overall theme of this Chi Chi LaRue gay blade DVD revolves around hands-on therapy, but even that gimmick is abandoned in the final vignette. As with prior releases on the new Noir Male label, the sex is standard Black on White big-dick Gay Porn, and the failing is the lack of concern with the brief NonSex set-ups.
LaRue relies almost wholly on voice-over narration to open each of his required four scenes (a standard enforced by distributor Mile High), and it is only seconds, not minutes, before the XXX action takes over. Finale is structured wistfully as a memory of a one-time stand in which a nerd gets humped by an idealized Black fantasy figure, set poolside and soon heading indoors for the money shots.
Other scenes feature muscular DeAngelo Jackson getting a dream massage from idolizing Jackson Reed and the similarly pie in the sky humping by Danny Gunn with his Yoga Instructor Timarrie Baker.
Closest to evoking the DVD title is a segment named "Healing Touch" in which therapist Max Adonis gets to lay hands on the injured leg of Black Latino Mateo Fernandez, soon straying to massaging his huge cock, and letting nature takes its course. Mateo is named "Kevin" in this scene, perhaps the only moment of creativity (?) in Chi Chi's bare-bones script.
Top Heavy Tarts 15 (2010)
Hard-up actresses give the Creameister a go
It's always embarrassing watching pro talent participate in low-grade porn, but Rodney Moore has been cranking out his cottage industry fellatio/facial exercises for decades and obviously pays more than scale to attract names.
Evie Delatosso really seems out of place here as a girl hired to sell Rodney's sex products, but falling short in her first week as to sales figures. He punishes her by forcing her to do a pole dance in his office and then humps her.
Barry Scott fills in for the auteur in servicing busty Haley Cummings, probably breast in show, while Mark Zane does the honors with a would-be stripper name of Bella Blaze. Rodney opts for a girl-next-door look casting Sadie Grey as a girl sent to him to be punished, not with BDSM techniques but the usual suck & f*ck technique that has kept Moore afloat lo these many years.
All Oiled Up (2017)
Suffers from repetitiousness
Stills & Mills compile a couple of two-parters, plus a facetious odd-scene-out at a massage salon, into this disappointing DVD. The all-girl-massage action probably plays better on their website.
Title 2-parter stars a remarkable Transatlantic team of Bree Daniels and Stella Cox, as a most unlikely pair of research scientists who have come up with a new massage oil formula with aphrodesiacal properties. Bree plays it straight, or overplays it, in her earnest attempt to bring the product to market by testing it in the lab without any safety precautions on hapless Stella.
This burlesque continues despite Stella's logical protests until eventually, after much fondling under the guise of applying the oil all over Cox's body Bree feels the need to see if it's safe to ingest. Rather than drinking a sample she elects to lick the liquid off Stella's pussy, at which point I could imagine Stills & Mills halting the shoot in order to immediately sign Daniels up to a long-term contract.
Their sex scene is arousing and well-executed, but the filmmakers can't resist repeating it with Part 2, almost identical in content but merely added as a repeat of the experimental trial, only this time videotaped as a TV commercial.
Similar drawback is the problem with the other 2-parter, an otherwise interesting match-up of highly contrasting femmes: Luna Star, with her big boobs and cute Charro Spanish accent, massaging little waif next door Yhivi. After fooling her friend after jogging with a massage that turns into child abuse, Luna hosts Yhivi for a return visit in which Y gets a chance to return the favor, but plays as merely more of the same. Luna's flashing tongue is the highlight here.
The extraneous scene is a cutesy, poorly improvised routine directed like a home movie made by young teens or preteens (but XXX in content of course). It has probably fake security guard Madelyn Monroe bamboozling masseuse Chloe Amour by putting up a male pal as pretend robber, so that MM can save the damsel in distress and be rewarded with a sex massage. It couldn't be sillier or more clumsily staged, just an excuse for more porn, and putting some hooded, unidentified crew member to work in the otherwise all-girl cast.
Black Attack (2000)
Julian St. Jox proves to be thoroughly inept as a filmmaker, cranking out random scenes (generally spotlighting himself) as he travels around in search of opportunities for interracial sex.
This mish-mash has him on the prowl in Budapest and on the Riviera in Cannes, pretending to pick up women, when in fact he's obviously gone through the local modeling agencies in traditional casting fashion. One pixie who is a dead ringer for Cyndi Lauper (even anticipating her recent pink-dyed hairdo) shows up repeatedly -she's Nicolette who I've seen in countless Joe D'Amato features of the '90s.
Another familiar face is that of the wonderful Brit Porn starlet Layla Jade, here captured on video before her breast-enlargement surgery. Her sex scenes are as mechanical as all the rest.
200 Proof (2007)
Sinclair should stop broadcasting
There are thousands of hacks directing porn, maybe millions now that we're in the Internet Age of the amateur. Sinclair at Vivid is an obscure director who should remain such.
This dumb show with a dumb title is a vehicle for contract actress Stefani Morgan, and has so little of value that one could round it off at zero. She plays (sort of) an informant for the FBI, coerced into that status by agent Dobson, a central and lengthy NonSex role for Van Damage.
He's out to get the goods on criminal Ben English, who runs strip clubs as fronts for his dealing in a date-rape drug called Honeysuckle. So we see strippers at work, a live sex show of lesbian strippers, plus the usual quota of boring sex scenes involving oversize cocks (belonging to English, Lee Stone as his head henchman and good bad guy Manuel Ferrera).
Besides handing in a poor script, Sinclair (who looks like a caricature of Stormy's hubby Brendon Miller, when viewed horsing around on set in the BTS short subject) has just three ladies in the cast, looking practically identical. Top of the fiasco with a plot structure lifted from Wilder's classic "Sunset Blvd.", with Damage as the voice-over corpse and you have non-entertainment of the lowest order.
Juicy G-Spots 2 (2004)
A lilttle squirt can't save this loser
Simon Wolf is a favorite writer-producer for me from the era about 15 to 20 years ago, but besides his entertaining fantasy romances he also ground out plenty of gonzo crap, this being a prime example.
It has his company exec Roberto Herrera delivering five generic sex scenes, only coming alive in the last couple when Squirting is included. The Queen of that fake porn gimmick, Angela Stone, delivers fountains of Evian or Poland Spring in the final reel, hardly constituting entertainment. None of the ladies is particulariy attractive or arousing in her performance, adding up the video's quality to a zero.
Natural Selection (2002)
Poor variation on the infidelity theme
Infidelity is likely the most frequently used basis for an Adult Movie plot, but Roy Karch's attempt to enact a twist on the subject falls miserably flat. This poorly constructed Adam & Eve release, missing from IMDb for 16 years till I added it this week, holds little interest.
It's about a neglected wife played by Inari Vachs and her philandering husband. In order to have a switcheroo near the end of the feature, Karch stretches credibility out of whack, making the whole trivial show unbelievable.
Key supporting role has Elizabeth X as Inari's BFF with her loyalty a key issue here. But aside from the dependable sex scenes featuring the two ladies, the rest of the movie is extraneous sex scenes tossed in stupidly. At one point, with continuity sacrificed, Karch suddenly has Inari and hubby Kyle Stone in bed together after already seemingly split, discussing out of nowhere why there is a couple outside making love. Stone tells some silly story about it, just so we can see big-dicked Brett Rockman hump voluptuous Justine Romee at night by the firepit - with no relationship to what's gone before.
Kristal Summers brings her big breasts to the exercise, another unexplained character who is apparently the couple's roommate. It is indicated in the BTS short subject that director Karch directed a softcore version of the movie for cable use as well, and the script shortcomings and inconsistencies must be even more annoying in that cut, given the absence of hardcore porn footage to distract the viewer.
The Bitches of Westwood (1988)
Hardly a classic, this Henri Pachard fantasy/comedy from the VHS era holds up well because of the excellent acting by performers who could chew gum, emote and have sex all at the same time. The wall-to-wall gonzo revolution has unfortunately rendered that obsolete.
So dipping back in time via a Caballero DVD we get John Leslie poking a bit of fun at himself and his career, portraying Jock Wesley, a porn superstar who in fact is perhaps The Devil himself. Three bored housewives (Sharon Kane, Krista Lane and Alexa Parks) take up amateur witchery, using a Fast Food Manual for creating spells and potions using household staples like milk and other ordinary ingredients.
They improbably conjure up the porn star, who soon is interfering with their lives, sexually of course. It's a cute if hardly engrossing story as written by ace screenwriter of the day Neil Wexler, and punched across by the cast.
Especially significant is Sharon Kane, who sings live for the camera (performing nicely on guitar as well) an original song "These Times". Wexler includes fine in-jokes, even referring explicitly to Caballero, and makes a key point about the Industry with Leslie's final line: "An angel has to make a living too".
The Speedway (1999)
Almost a big deal from the old Vivid
Shot over 20 years ago, Vivid Video's "The Speedway" recalls days when contract stars were Big stars, and fans would get the semblance of a real movie (albeit B level) when watching a porn feature. It holds up fairly well with the passage of time, probably due to star power.
It's a Janine vehicle, made special by reuniting her with Julia Ann, her live show teammate crucial in her earliest porn success. Janine plays a race-car driver for an all-girl team managed by slimy Randy Spears, well-cast in an unsympathetic role.
Vying for the driver's seat on the team in place of Janine is Raylene, who steals the movie for my money. Her presence is something of a necessity for Vivid, because at this stage of her career Janine was still only shooting girl/girl scenes, leaving Ray to pick up the slack by taking on all studs.
The all-star cast extends to Shanna McCullough as a team mechanic and Sindee Coxx impressive as always as yet another hetero surrogate helping Janine out by seducing new team mechanic Nick East. Best actress in the cast is Inari Vachs, also assigned a pivotal role.
Plenty of atmosphere is provided by shooting at a race track including some real racing footage, with the car used being sponsored by rival (but friendly) porn label Adam & Eve. For traditional Adult Cinema fans this feature has a whopping nine sex scenes (including Sapphic sex for Janine with Julia Ann) concisely choreographed and edited into a 90-minute package. Of the participants, both Julia Ann and director/cameraman Ralph Parfait are still going strong two decades later.
Come Inside Me Volume 3 (2017)
Uninteresting tribute to creampies
Unlike most Sweet Sinner series, this one is mired in the title gimmick of what might be termed "internal ejaculation", presumably the type of sex which has kept the human race going all these thousands of years. As a cinematic genre it remains a nonstarter.
Taking over from James Avalon (who made a somewhat lateral move from Sweet Sinner over to sister labels Hard X and Dark X under the Mile HIgh corporate umbrella), Jacky St. James seems stumped by the title concept. The storyline linking together the usual 4 sex scenes is uninteresting, dwelling on how people moving on to new relationships might feel compelled to keep in touch with and even rely upon their ex-partners.
That just adds one indigestible gimmick to another, as juggling the old and new relationships is unconvincing and strictly arbitrary here. Star of the piece Alexa Grace (stuck in a rut since she was featured in Avalon's creampie movie the year before, Volume 2) hears the complaint of blonde cutie Karla Kush about her man Alex Jones constantly breaking up having sex with her to answer a phone call from his ex, petite Lily Jordan. The script ultimately resolves this quandary, but hardly satisfactorily.
It's almost musical chairs as we follow the contrived connections between cast members, bouncing back and forth from current flames to exes. Not surprisingly, Jacky covered exactly the same territory for her previous label New Dimensions with a minor release titled "The Exes and Ohhhs", a cast member of which -Michael Vegas - returns in "Come Inside Me 3", sporting an unbecoming (and nearly invisible) blond mustache.
The mindless voice-over prattling, and a dumb mantra about "nice girls finish last" make me wonder if Jacky is serious at all about this particular screenplay. And each scene ends with a dribbly creampie, totally irrelevant to any of the story lines.
