Initial Expectations: Wildlife has been putting out some decent stuff. With a cast like this I canít help but have some fairly high expectations.
Initial Reaction: Wow! This is one of the few features I went it with fairly high expectations and had them exceeded!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who wants a wide range of sex styles
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants all their porn mostly soft and cuddly or who doesnít like rough sex
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is well balanced, but often feels like the microphones were maxed out when it was recorded. It frequently gets just a little scratchy, but thankfully not so much that you canít understand the people. The video is a bit on the soft side, but fits the feature well. The lighting is fairly inconsistent, which I think is due to a lot of natural light being used. Once again, it kind of fits the feature, and doesnít detract from the movie too much.
Music: The music comes and goes throughout the feature, but is always nicely balanced with the rest of the audio. It has an electronic style that isnít quite like that used in most pornos, and helps the scenes out nicely.
Disc Problems / Complaints: The feature is split over two titles on the DVD, with the break occurring about an hour into the movie and in the middle of the scene. As usual, once you start the second title you canít go back to anything in the first title without going through the main menu. This is a pretty juvenile problem that I thought adult companies had moved past. Thereís also a commercial for Wildlifeís website before the feature starts (you can skip it by jumping to one minute into the first chapter). This always annoys me, since I feel forced to watch a commercial I donít want to see. I could tolerate it a bit more if it had its own chapter, but if you try to skip that chapter, you also skip some of the movie.
Menus: The main menu is simple, with a nice photo of Renee La Rue in the background and a small clip of a scene alongside it. The chapter menu is pretty standard, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The Feature: Being a brilliant sex therapist isnít always all itís cracked up to be. Renee La Rue finds herself unable to concentrate on her clientís problems, with her mind wandering instead into fantasies about her clientsí sex lives and imagining that Darren Blade is trying to get more than a little physical with her. Her friends and clients can tell somethingís wrong, but she doesnít want to let anybody know she might be going crazy.
Amythiest Stone, a cute brunette with a nice natural body, starts things off going for a nice little walk with Tyce Bune, which leads to soft kissing and a massage before she takes her top off and they get on with fucking like bunnies. Tyce gently kisses his way around her body, taking the time to work over her entire body rather than just her pussy. Amythiest thanks Tyce by going directly to sucking his cock like he likes rather than beating around the bush, and gives him some great eyes as she tries to swallow his pole. They move on through doggie and reverse and standard cowgirl before Tyce gives her a nice facial. Itís a hot scene that has a great balance. It starts off lovingly and moves onto passionate sex in a fairly realistic fashion. The foreplay section really makes this scene work, although the sex itself is also darn good. Amythiestís facial expressions donít normally convey passion, but I have a feeling she can do a great intense scene. My biggest problem with the scene is that if women are taking the surname of Stone, guys might go with the last name of Lynn, which is just going to get way too confusing.
Shay Sights and Trevor Zen get busy in Reneeís mind for the next scene. They let their hands run wild across each other before Trevor drops down to tongue and probe Shayís snatch. She returns the favor with a little knob gobbling for Trevor before he starts energetically fucking her from behind. They keep things going through cowgirl and missionary before Shay takes a facial finish. Iím not sure if Trevor had a few problems here or not, since there was an edit between him saying he was going to come and actually doing it. Itís a hot scene with very good chemistry and energy. Itís just a little more intense than the previous scene, which works very nicely. I havenít seen a lot of Shay, but Iím really starting to like what I see.
Bitch wife Olivia Saint and whipped husband Marty Romano are the next couple in Reneeís office and fantasy world. This time Renee brings herself into the fantasy, and sits in a chair in Olivia and Martyís bedroom as they get busy. Olivia starts things off with some energetic head before Marty throws her back to tongue her twat and let her know whoís in control now. He moves on to fuck her pussy missionary style and spoon her ass. He spanks her and makes her take an ass to mouth while degrading her verbally before fucking her ass from behind. He finally gives her a good facial and another ass to mouth. Itís a hot scene that I think will turn off a lot of people. Knowing that Olivia Saint likes her sex a lot rougher made all the difference for me here, but people who donít know will probably be really turned off.
When Mia Smiles and Steve Hatcher stop by to check in on Renee, they journey into her fantasy world for the penultimate scene. Renee sits on Miaís face while Steve tongues Miaís pussy and ass, and Mia darn near works Renee up to her fist (and from some angles you might think she does). They move around so Renee can warm Steve up before Mia starts riding him, at which point Renee disappears. They move on through a bit of missionary, with Mia looking more than a little uncomfortable at some times yet really into it at others. They finish things up doggie style and Mia taking a facial that she doesnít always look happy to receive. This is another scene that isnít always completely comfortable, yet Mia looks like she enjoys some of the rougher stuff so Iím okay with it.
Renee La Rue finishes things up with Nick Manning. She starts out having him eat her pussy on her stairwell before she sucks his schlong. They move on to fuck standing, doggie style, and reverse cowgirl all on the stairs. Iím sure other reviewers might give you some motherly advise about the dangers of fucking on the stairs and slipping on each otherís juices or the lube causing you to fall down the stairs and break something you really donít want a cast on, but Iíll leave that to them. Renee finishes things up taking a very impressive facial from Nick and looking like she wants every drop of it. Itís a very good scene to finish things up with. It has some of the same great energy and chemistry as the other scenes, as well as working in a few artistic shots.
A Beautiful Sexy Mind is a surprisingly good and diverse adult film. It doesnít have a complex plot, but what there is works extremely well and keeps the movie flowing nicely. Things progress from soft and loving to harder, nastier, and darker, with Renee La Rue doing a great job of playing both ends of the spectrum. Itís rare to find a movie that can progress in this way and do it as well as Bobby Rinaldi has done here, which makes A Beautiful Sexy Mind as pleasurable as it is surprising. Asa always, Renee La Rue does a great job leading the cast, and the rest of the cast does a great job following her lead as she progresses through her sexual needs and frustrations. It would be hard to single out a specific scene in the movie as the best, although I think Mia Smiles and Olivia Saintís scenes might make more than a few people a little squeamish. My only complaint is that some of the camera work seemed a little off at times. It would get close to what I wanted to see, but there would still be a little off-screen that felt like it was missing. Even with this problem, the sex had enough heat and energy that I couldnít pull myself away from it. A Beautiful Sexy Mind is a beautiful and sex thing indeed.
Extras: The photo gallery lasts about two and a half minutes with about six seconds per good looking snapshot or full screen photo. As the photos go by, thereís also a small clip of the movie that plays. Although I wasnít sure about this at first, Iím really starting to dislike it. The scene rarely corresponds with the photo, which makes them fight a bit. Thereís also internet and contact information and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about eight and a half minutes and has footage captured by The Coach. As usual, Renee La Rue gets quite a bit of screen time, which is just fine with me since she always seems like a neat and fun person. Thereís also a bit of Olivia Saint fluffing Marty Romano, who seems to need more strokes than it takes licks to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop, some of the scenes being shot, and a few of the photos being shot. Thereís a little bit of everybody here, which should make it a good featurette for anybody who enjoyed the movie.
Themes: Straight, voyeurism, masturbation, spanking, anal, ass to mouth, inter-racial, group, lesbian, rimming (male > female), and rough sex
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Currently, most of Wildlifeís DVDs can be found online for between $11 and $22 with a few stores offering them for under $15. If you want a variety of sex styles in your porn, and donít mind rough sex, this is going to be money very well spent. The sex is hot and varied, and the transfer is pretty good. Thereís even a behind the scenes featurette to make the overall DVD a little better.
Note to Wildlife: Please fix your authoring so that the entire movie fits on one title on the DVD. This annoyed people when it was done in DVDs early days and isnít going to be received any better now.
