The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Homegrown's movies have been very hit or miss for me. I'm not quite sure what to expect here, but I can't get my expectations too high.
Initial Reaction: It's an okay movie on a DVD that could definitely use a bit more effort.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting anal sex with a few new faces
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting anal sex with a cast that feels like it's new to anal sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects almost make it to the average mark. The audio is fairly well balanced and clear, but there are a few minor background noises. The video is presented in a mix of non-anamorphic widescreen and full screen footage, depending on the scene. The lighting is normally well handled and there's very little grain, but there is a fair amount of camera motion and the editing is very choppy at times.
Disc Complaints: The authoring is a bit funky, which doesn't seem to be anything too unusual with Homegrown. Rather than having the entire movie on a title that makes it easy for viewers to skip to where ever they choose in the movie (which is extremely nice if you get tired of a scene and just want to jump ahead randomly or if you're viewing the movie later and want to go to a specific point in the movie) each scene has its own title, similar to how some studios run their TV shows on DVD. This style of authoring has thankfully gone the way of the dodo with most studios, but Homegrown and Naughty America seem to be sticking with it. Both studios are distributed by Pure Play and like Hundies (also distributed by Pure Play) there's only recently been an effort put into their extras (although Homegrown DVDs seem to use the same extras on all of their DVDs). Seeing that lack of care in the same areas for several studios being distributed by the same company I can't help but think that the problem and lack of care lies with Pure Play Media more than anything. With that little care coming from their releases maybe the customer should just be glad that they get a time stamp throughout the movie.
False Advertising: The boxcover lists a bonus scene as being on the DVD, but I couldn't find one anywhere. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
Menus: There's only one menu, and it blends a simple background with text choices for extras and clips from each scene to let you jump to specific chapters. If you choose a scene, you're oddly taken shortly past the start of each scene rather than beginning at the start of the scene.
The FeatureThe Amateur Anal Attempts series collects scenes where the girls take it in the ass. Sometimes the girls chat with the camera to start the scene and sometimes they get right to the action. Regardless, the action is all captured very amateurish manner and it's not at all uncommon to see lesser known porn stars in the mix.
|Scene 1 – Rucca Page and Buck|
Brunette Rucca shows off her nipples and hairy bush before talking about only taking a finger in her ass. She lets Buck grope her nice big tits before dropping to her knees to suck his cock. Rucca gets up to strip off her panties and let Buck finger her pussy before laying back so he can fuck her hairy hole missionary style. She shows a bit of discomfort as Buck starts fucking her ass dry, and after a bit adds a bit of creamy lube to make it a little easier on her. He works his way between Rucca's holes in missionary, cowgirl, and doggie with Rucca mixing in some decent ass to mouth. Finally, Buck pops on Rucca's hairy beaver.
This is an above average scene. Rucca takes the cock nicely, and goes from looking a bit uncomfortable to looking like she's into it pretty good. The camera work is a bit rough and as usual Buck leaves a bit to be desired due to some wood problems, but my bigger problem is Rucca being in a movie that's supposed to be “Amateur Anal Attempts” since she's been taking cocks up her ass on screen since 2006. This is a decent scene, but it just doesn't seem like it should be in a movie billing itself as amateurs trying anal for the first time.
|Scene 2 – Stacia Foxxx and Damon|
Brunette Stacia starts her scene out working out on her Bowflex. They chat as she strips down, and as Damon talks about fucking her in the ass she shoots him down repeatedly. Damon plays with Stacia's pussy and gives it a little tongue before she lets him finger her ass. She sucks his cock before laying back on her exercise equipment so he can fuck her. Stacia lets him finger her ass a little more before they move to the bed where she gets on all fours and lets him finger her ass again. Damon pops on her ass before he can fuck it, but then fucks her ass starting in doggie style and keeping at it as she rolls to her back. Stacia continues to roll around as he fucks her ass, and finally hoists her ass up in the air for him to pop on her asshole and pussy.
This is a pretty good scene. Damon seems a bit pushy with the anal to start the scene, but Stacia does a nice job letting him in. She takes the ass extremely well through the scene, and seems like she has quite a bit of experience with it. There's a little talk at the end of the scene about this actually being her first time trying anal, but I can't help but have my doubts due to how well she took it and because of the obviously experienced Rucca being in the opening scene. That said, this is still a pretty hot scene and I wouldn't mind seeing more of Stacia in the future.
|Scene 3 – Heather and Alex|
Brunette Heather starts out on a bed with her hubby Alex wearing a little black babydoll top talking about how they enjoyed their previous scene and now wanting to try it with anal since they've been experimenting with it. They kiss passionately while helping each other strip down and work in a bit of oral action as they go. Heather gets on top to ride Alex sidesaddle and reverse cowgirl style before going for a long scissor fuck and getting back up to ride him cowgirl style. Heather even lets Alex fuck her tits before having him warm her ass up with his fingers. He fucks her ass doggie style after a couple attempts and Heather taking a break to warm herself up with a toy, and moves on to let him spoon her ass. Heather fucks her ass with the toy a little more as Alex watches, and then lets him pop on her face. Afterwards Alex helps her clean up.
This is a very nice anal scene. Heather is cute as can be with a great body, and really looks like she's having fun with the anal. You can tell that they're not completely used to anal, but Heather's definitely into it and her enthusiasm makes the scene work. The action is nicely captured and moves along at a nice pace with a few minor mishaps as they try to get started. This is a hot scene that actually feels like Heather and Alex are still new to anal as well as being my favorite scene in the movie.
|Scene 4 – Kalyn Arianna and Buck|
“Coach” Buck stops brunette Kalyn as she walks down the street to check on if she made the cheerleader team. They talk about it being her first time cheerleading and the possibility of her being head cheerleader. She lets him know she'd do most anything for the position, including giving head, and then heads back to his place where she gives plenty of short answers about sex claiming to be inexperienced with both deep throat and anal while showing off a nice natural body with heavy tan lines. She goes right to throating his cock when it's time to get started and lets Buck fuck her face. She struggles a bit as he gets into face fucking her as she lays back with her head off the couch, and doesn't look the most comfortable as he plays with her ass and starts fucking it with his semi-hard cock missionary style afterwards. Buck also fucks Kalyn's ass doggie style and shows it gaping as well as working his way between her holes. Kalyn even takes a little ass to mouth before letting Buck pop in her mouth and swallowing it down.
This is easily the weakest scene in the movie, but also the one that might appeal best to a lot of amateur porn fans. Kalyn has a clueless feeling that definitely makes her seem like this is her first time on camera, but her deep throat skills left me doubting her claims of being inexperienced with either deep throat or anal sex. She took the deep throat well at first, but when Buck got into it a little too enthusiastically she looked like she was more than a little uncomfortable with him not backing off much. This really lost me, and the scene never recovered because of it. It also didn't help that Kalyn looked uncomfortable mentally and emotionally more than she did physically as the anal started, and the only time the scene took much of an upswing was when she happily swallowed down the cum. There's definitely the touch of reality that amateur porn fans love in this scene, but sadly it wasn't always the good kind of reality.
Amateur Anal Attempts 19 is an okay release. Rucca, Heather, and Stacia all do a very nice job taking it in the ass, but also frequently left me doubting them being new to anal sex. Kalyn also left me doubting her inexperience with anal due to her gaping, and brought the entire movie down due to what looked like both mental and emotional discomfort with Buck after he got a little too enthusiastic with face fucking her without regard to her enjoyment. As usual with Homegrown the camera work and editing is a bit rough, and the amateur aspect of the movie seems to relate to what's behind the camera more than it ever does what's in front of it. Amateur Anal Attempts 19 is a decent fuck flick, but don't go in expecting girls who don't seem more than familiar with anal sex.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for many of Homegrown's previous releases as well as a few of their upcoming releases. They nicely let you see who's in each scene and give you several clips from each movie, but unfortunately also lump all of the trailers under two chapters so that you can't skip a title easily if you've already seen it or aren't interested in it. There's also weblinks and a blooper reel.
The blooper reel lasts about twelve and a half minutes. Unlike most blooper reels which actually contain bloopers from the movie on the DVD, this is a completely generic blooper reel that spans the entire range of Homegrown's releases. It spans so many movies that it's even organized into areas such as bodily functions. There's a few chuckles here, but it's not nearly as good as it might have been if it featured clips from this movie.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, anal, ass to mouth, toys, and swallowing
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: Between Damon and Stacia
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Homegrown DVDs can be found online for between about $13 and $25 with a few stores offering them near the low end. Aim low here. There's some good anal action, but I was often left with doubts as to the level of experience the performers had with anal sex. The technical aspects are above average, but as usual with Homegrown the extras are recycled and show no real effort because of it. This isn't a bad movie, but it rarely felt like an amateur movie.
Note to Homegrown: You have some nice looking covers for your movies. I just wish one could believe all that's listed on them
