A Capella

Normally, there aren’t too many top tier companies that go ‘all-out’ for solo productions, but Ninn Worx_SR goes ‘all in’ with high production values combined with beautiful girls who get off by themselves. What makes this also extremely watchable is the various music from trip-hop to country twang, which provides the viewer with aural enjoyment throughout the 20 solo scenes.

Starring: Jana Jordan, Heather Vuur, Rita Faltoyano, Carli Banks, Marie Luv, Daisy Marie, Holly Wellin, Ginger Lea, et al.

Running Length: ~2 hours and 9 minutes

The Ninn-directed feature is presented in widescreen 16×9 and encoded in MPEG-2 at a steady 5-6 Mbps with high clarity. None of the colors throughout the scenes are oversaturated at all. Instead of the standard 192 Kbps, this feature is encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0 at 224 kbps. Needless to say, the sex sounds and the soundtrack are replayable.

In terms of the extras, the DVD includes a very interesting behind-the-scenes vignette and a standard photo gallery. Although it may not be as eye-opening as the Sophia BTS where one of the stars wants to go to medical school, this BTS has Ginger Lea who confesses she finds the Prez attractive! Other notable BTS moments include the pornstars having catered breakfast on location. At one point, we get to see Rita Faltoyano without a ‘high-pitched’ voice as she has in several other films I’ve seen . . . perhaps she had a cold or maybe she was faking the voice in the other movies.

Of the twenty scenes, ten of the scenes were exceptional with another 8 being above average to average and the two being Kaiya’s and Holly’s not so good. I am only going to go into detail with the notable scenes in no particular order.

Contract girl and Penthouse Pet of the Month Jana Jordan performs is the alpha and omega of the movie so-to-speak since she pulls in two performances. Her first scene starts in an ultra-modern glass San Fernando Valley house overlooking the city. Jana Jordan looks wears a lawyer-inspired powersuit, which she undresses from to show off her well-proportional body. She gets down to business as we are treated with her sex sounds accompanied with some nice technomusic before she succumbs to her orgasm. Her other scene begins with a photo shot, which becomes a solo scene where she talks dirty to the camera before she cums.

Another contract girl, Heather Vuur, performs a smoldering scene! Ms. Vuur has a very attractive face, who could have easily donned the pictures of Playboy or other men’s magazines on top of her Penthouse Pet of the Year honors. Luckily for us, she’s performing a hot and steamy solo where her hair is tight to her scalp. She’s all glammed up for the scene and starts to undress for us in a Japanese tea garden. Soon, she opens up her wonderland, which starts where her long legs end! She does a great job with the solo performance ven simulating a cowgirl penetration while she diddles herself to exhaustion!

For Asian fans, we have the lovely, yet oh-so-nasty Mika Tan performing a solo scene. She’s toned down her nastiness and instead brings her sexy and sophisticated look to the table. The scene takes place in one of those traditional conservative study rooms where she’s wearing high-class lingerie. We get to see her attractive face since her hair is all up as she performs a very seductive striptease for us viewers. She’s a little hornier than the other girls on the DVD because she’s the only one using a dildo to pleasure herself. This scene is very satisfying and is very replayable like the other scenes mentioned.

Jenaveve Jolie, a veteran Latina pornstar, keeps the cigar room/conservative room theme going, but this time the scene centers on her sitting in a grandfather ‘old money’ chair. The dimly lit room provides a nice atmosphere to the scene, which is about to unravel. She’s wearing a Marilyn Monroe-type red dress, which shows off her strippers body. She gives us a nice tease before she starts gyrating and finally playing with herself!

Daisy Marie’s scene has the 50s theme, which happens to be Michael Ninn’s favorite themes as his prior movies like ‘Fade to Blue’ attests to. This former contract star with Video Team turns out a nice cinema-noir solo scene, as in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City’ with the use of the black and white with color. It’s nice to see Daisy Marie in a great scene considering she is also a veteran of the industy.

Another veteran the lovely black pornstar, Marie Luv, gives us an extremely steamy solo scene that takes place in a luxurious bathroom. She’s wearing some really classy, yet hot lingerie before she gives us a really enjoyable solo performance, where she really is into it. As a result, this scene is in the top three on this DVD!

For viewers who want to see some ‘fresh-looking’ faces, Alexis Love’s scene is just the ticket! The lovely genetic combination of latina/pinay beauty has produced this girl who just exudes sex! She has a great body i f you like your girls on the skinny side. Apparently, this is another scene which recycles the location since she’s overlooking LA in the very same San Fernando Valley glass house as other scens on the DVD. Alexis is wearing a sexy cordoroy top and undresses to reveal her white panties. I don’t mind seeing this anal starlet taking a break with some hot solo action! Before the solo, she gives a hot striptease. Although she gives a decent solo, Alexis seems more comfortable with boy/girl action. At least, she does a nice job getting herself off at the end.

The last noteworthy scene stars Carli Banks, which is set near a backyard fountain. This scene is all about high fashion as she wears an interesting piece of lingerie. The solo scene is accompanied by great new age music in the likes of the group ‘Deep Forest’ combined with a bit of smooth jazz. She’s really into the mastubation and it really looks as if she’s getting off without playing too much for the camera!

In summary, I would be hard-pressed to find a more superior solo product than this one. The movie does so many things right from the cast, to the locations, and to the music. This movie is not just eye candy . . . it’s also aural candy too!

The Best By Private 76: Princesses of Darkness

This compilation is certainly unique as it displays the best of black pornstars from across the Private world. There’s a good number of established American starlets like Marie Luv, Jada Fire, and others. Furthermore, there’s a good selection of international mulattas from Brazil and the Czech Republic. There are scenes which are very good while others are only average.

Starring: Marie Luv, Jenna Brooks, Sandy Rio, Mercedes Ashley, Lisa, Mandelin Crox, and Jada Fire

Running Length: ~ 2 hours 1 minute

The DVD is encoded in MPEG-2 with a decent bitrate and the audio is encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0 at 192 kbps. The lighting is sketchy in several scenes, but it’s definitely noticeable in Skeeter Kerkove’s scene with Jada Fire. Not only is the lighting sketchy, but the color red is oversaturated. Except for the foreign accents in the different scenes, the audio and dialogue is mostly discernible.

As far as specials are concerned, there is the standard cast info and trailers, which is run of the mill and bare bones.

Out of the seven scenes, only three of them are actually worthy enough to discuss. The first scene starring Marie Luv and directed by Sexkicks is a throwback of the age old porn scenario of two guys hunting down a girl in a warehouse. By the time, the two men find her, she’s busy twiddling her ass with her finger. Soon, she turns her attention at sucking them and showing off her aggressive fellatio skillis. After the sucking, she takes it in the ass until they fuck her in a standing dp before she takes the sticky facials! All in all, it was a very nice scene with great intensity.

The next scene is the best of the compilation starring a sexy Brazilian mulatto, Sandy Rio, who looks more “Brazilian” than black. Other important stats include her sexy tongue piercing, contact lenses, and her hot DSL lips. This scene was directed by a long-time Private collaborator JF Romagnoli who has shot some lovelies in the past like Maria Bellucci and he has the knack of getting a lot of intensity from the girls and this scene proves that fact. The threesome is heated throughout the scene including some hot DP ending in one weak facial and one very thick and stickly load on her pretty face of hers!

Tom Herold directs a scene from “Sex Addicts” starring an ebony Czech lady, Lisa. It’s a nice scene complete with steady intensity from the good oral to the doggie and finally to the anal. First, he takes it slow fucking her ass, but turns up the speed fucking her in the ass doggie style. But, in the end he barely manages an average facial.

The other four scenes were average at best and did not help either that two of the four remaining scenes were directed by Alessandro del Mar who is in charge of the Tropical productions. Technically, his directing style is fine, but the talent don’t seem like they are enjoying themselves at all. It’s way too mechanical for me. The other two are directed by North American directors Michael Ninn and Skeeter Kerkove. Michael Ninn is known for visually stunning features and scenes, but this scene is too weird for my tastes, which has Steve Holmes in the end acting like he has a seizure. The Skeeter Kerkove scene stars one of the top black-American pornstars Jada Fire in yet another hard acrobatic anal scene all with the requisite slut pumps and slutty gear involved.

In summary, there are some very good scenes as already mentioned with that of Sandy Rio’s being the most outstanding. Despite three good scenes, the other four scenes managed to be average for me.

Private Movies 37: Porn In the City

New director Macondo delivers a hardcore charged version of “Sex in the City” in the city of lovers, Paris, starring the hottest ladies from Europe!

Starring: Diana Gold, Lucy Lee, Anetta Keys, Seline, and Vanessa May

Running Length: ~1 hour 52 minutes

The movie is presented in anamorphic widescreen with the video encoded in MPEG-2 at around 5-6 Mbps and the audio encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0 at 192kbps. The scene are well-lit and there’s no drowning out or color saturation. However, the sound is muffled because of echoing effects especially during Diana Gold’s scene.

Included in the special features are interviews with the talent. The interview format for the combined Lucy Lee and Vanessa May is very distracting as it tries to be stylish with the two stars constrained in rectangular borders separately. The next interview has the lovely Angel Dark not looking so lovely without the makeup, but at least she gives an entertaining, especially when we find out that she’s a speed demon! The last interview is with Diana Gold, but there’s nothing to learn from it. The 4 BTS shows the antics of the production crew. For example the boom mic operator is having a little too much fun with the mic using it to grope one of the gals! Other than that, it’s the standard features like cast profile and trailers.

“Porn in the City” starts with Lucy shopping through the Parisian streets like the Champs D’Elysee before meeting her gal pals to dish out their sexual fantasies and experiences just like in HBO’s “Sex in the City.”

In total there are five scenes, which range from girl/girl, threesomes, and one-on-action. Diana starts the movie off retelling her fantasy encounter being ravished by two motorcyclists after talking to her mom on the phone while driving her SUV out to an abandoned warehouse. The scene to me was formulaic and it just doesn’t look like Diana was into the scene. Although, she does the requisite nasty dp before she receives their loads on her ass on her face!

Despite the lukewarm first scene, Lucy Lee turns up the notch with her scorching scene where she plays a sexy lawyer who is about to close a property deal with a reputed crime boss. Lucy Lee is all business with the boss, but the boss wants an extra assurance that he can trust her. This leads to a very steamy and intense blowjob session before the full-on hard anal, which ends with a nice facial finish!

The next scene stars the lovely Anetta Keys who has one of the world’s greatest tanned bodies and it doesn’t matter if she has an annoying tattoo on her back because she’s that hot! The occasional meat-eater turns vegetarian in this scene where she serves up a great lesbian scene with Angel Dark after wondering down some stairs into a ‘research facility’. Angel Dark really makes the scene worth since she actually looks like she’s enjoying the scene and getting off from it.

Before the ladies part ways from the bar, Seline, a Judith Fox clone, is complaining about her lack of a love life and she confesses to her girlfriends that she had a kinky fantasy where she’s fucked by two men. There’s a good deal of action, but it didn’t give the same sort of satisfaction as Lucy Lee’s.

Soon, Lucy Lee is walking to meet her gangster boyfriend from scene two before the secret police kidnap her and interrogate her at the jail cell. The male detective tries to break her down with threats, but she doesn’t budge. Vanessa May uses her female touch with Lucy by putting latex gloves before fingering Lucy’s pussy. Lucy’s outraged by the abuse of power, but it doesn’t get any better as the detective jerks off until he shoves his dick into Lucy’s sexy mouth. Vanessa May joins into the fray and soon the women are taking turns sucking and getting fucked in the ass before he dumps his load on them! It’s a hot scene with great chemistry among the three and it’s another scorching Vanessa May performance.

In summary, the DVD has its moments, but it doesn’t compete with other features from Private. I found that there was something lacking in Diana Gold’s and Seline’s scenes. I expected more from a spoof on “Sex and the City” as it just doesn’t have the same qualities as the mainstream original.

Annette is Slutwoman!

The Mason-directed movie should leave haters converting into lovers of her work. Known for her extreme edginess and willing to push her talent’s sexuality, she’s a controversial director in the world of porn. It may seem ironic in itself that in Slutwoman, Mason has managed to keep her hard edge, but at the same softening up. You may wonder how she’s able to do this? In between the edgy scene, Mason stylizes Annette Schwarz’s interview like one of those “Real World” MTV confessions, but without the crass superficiality attached to it. Specifically, we get to see Annette’s ‘Geist’ or in English soul or spirit. She may be one slutty girl, but there’s more to it to this Rheinisches Mädchen!

Starring: Annette Schwarz and Sandra Romain

Running Length: ~3 hours 38 minutes

The movie is encoded in MPEG-2 running at a respectable 3.5-4.0 Mbps with the audio encoded in Dolby Digital 2.0 in the standard 192 Kbps. There are no instances where the audio is either too loud or too faint and there is no background noise during the important interview segments. The visual aspect is top notch with good lighting in the scenes providing us with a clear picture of the action at hand.

For the extras, there is an 8+ minute behind-the-scenes where we get to see Annette and we gain more of her perspectives and believes. There’s a great moment when Mason, right before the Sandra and Annette scene, where she tells her star if the scene gets too rough just let her know. In the background, Sandra Romain has a smug expression and you can tell that Sandra is going to test the great Annette on how nasty and depraved can she be!

Without going into a 2,000 word essay describing all the sexual acts and how it ends, I’ll give a brief, but succinct description. Mason bucks the trend of making cookie-cutter type scenes in favor of very heated and intense scenes that may be too much for even hardcore fans. There’s a total of five scenes with one scene having a two-part blowbang, which is very intense.

The movie starts and ends with scenes of submission and domination. The first scene has Annette dressed up as sex slave waiting for her owner. He’s just returned to his LA home and finds her begging for his attention like a dog to his master. He has her perform all sexual acts before he gives her his milk, which he thoughtfully deposits in her dog pan. The last scene has one of the sluttiest women around, Sandra Romain, trying to break Annette down sexually as well as verbally. This is a heated lesbian scene, which may be too extreme for viewers as it contains spitting into the eye and goes as far as pseudo fisting with 4 out of the 5 digits in at the same time!

If you haven’t known by now, Annette Schwarz, had been a household name in Germany with her performances from the very hardcore München production house, John Thompson GGG Films, where she first exhibited her skill at deepthroating several inches of live ‘bratwurst’ without so much resistance and taking it up the arse before getting doused with ounces of cum! So, I haven’t seen any American productions that come close to her german bukkake scenes until the two-part blowbang in ‘Slutwoman’. For Annette, it looks like a cakewalk deepthroating dicks and the best thing is she doesn’t discriminate by race as she gives great head and deepthroat to all spectrums of color. Furthermore, there is some great humor contained in the intense blowbang when Mason asks how their dicks taste . . . at one point she says salty and when she blows the Asian guy, Annette tells Mason he tastes like Asian and then Mason quips by saying it probably is ‘spicy’! At the end of both parts, she gets her fair share of cum, but she literally receives a cum dousing, which would make John Thompson even proud. For shock value, Annette walks out of the warehouse and onto one of the streets in Canoga Park while the cum becomes to liquefy and drip down her face!

The other two scenes fall into the norm of gonzo porn. One scene’s scenario is a blind date fuck where she fucks a guy and his friend. The two brothas fuck her hard and by scene’s end, even a sex dynamo like Annette is tired by the wild sex. The other scene has her fucking in a deserted loft and it’s a great scene ending in a well-placed facial!

In summary, the lady from a small village next to the Rhein has done some good in her profession. Furthermore, Mason balances her edginess with the interview scenes that give the viewer time to recover for the next mindblowing scene. For Annette, porn is an outlet for her ‘Angst’ and ‘Sex-Traume’. In addition, people may treat pornstars as what they are, but at least we get to see that Annette is just like any other girl discussing how relationships usually progress . . . from fucking like bunnies everyday to fucking once a week. You just don’t get to see the ‘human’ side of porn, especially when it feels real instead of something artificial. Don’t be fooled by the glamourous box cover because this DVD is ALL hardcore and then some! This is definitely not a couples movie, so you should definitely steer away from it. But, if you are a hardcore porn viewer, then this will satisfy you! Dank Gott für Annette!

RATING: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
