|Where to buy:||DVD Rent|
Running Time: 40 min.
Production Date: 2002
Director: Sean Brookland
Cast: Sante Fe, Akane, Charis, Jennifer, Kat, Misery, and Secily
Initial Expectations: Iíve never heard of this studio, so Iím going in with an open mind.
Initial Reaction: Thereís some decent care to the feature, but itís not my thing and almost put me to sleep.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who wants to watch mostly dressed women only
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants nudity or real audio
Audio /Video Quality: Thereís no audio outside of the music, which disappointed me. The video is surprisingly clear right out to the edge of the screen and well lit. Thereís a little pixelation, but not much.
Music: The music reminded me of things like elevators and the dentist office.
Disc Problems / Complaints: Thereís no time stamp here, which always ticks me off. I like to be able to jump around in movies, as well as knowing things like how long the movie is and how much is left. Without the time stamp, Iím left in the dark.
Menus: The main menu is mostly a chapter menu that gives you the option between watching a specific performer and watching all of the scenes by selecting a picture off a wall with the performerís name under it. Itís a very nice menu, and shows creativity and care.
The Feature: The cover of The Best of Pacific Northwoods Amatuers: Panty Peeks 1 states that There is northing as sexy as watching beautiful young women run around, talk on the phone, or just read a magazine in their silky, sexy panties. Thatís just what you get here. Iím not going to break each scene down and tell you about each one, because most of the scenes are very short and thatís about all that happens in them. Secily, Jennifer, Kat, Akane, Misery, and Charis all talk on the phone, with most of them also rolling around on the bed. Jennifer, one of the best looking girls here, has the longest scene and adds a little fun to her scene by raiding the fridge, drinking milk, eating a banana, and other everyday things. Santa Fe, on the other hand, obviously has the most fun by doing a tease in each of her scenes.
Itís all a nice idea, but it never seems to go anywhere. The camera work is nicely done, and gives you shots from the back as well as the front so you get a full view of the panties, but the scenes focus so much on girls on the phone that every scene feels the same. Itís also not helped out by only having a few minutes with any nudity, and then itís only topless. I know this is about the panties, but a glimpse of gash now and then would have really helped it out. Much of the appeal of panties is what they hide, and sometimes just a glimpse of whatís inside can make them all the more exciting. Perhaps the thing that hurt it most for me was the audio. The music bored the heck out of me, and only hurt the scenes. Yes, the girls are eye candy, but with the music covering everything up I never felt like I got a full scene. Of course, the biggest problem here for me is that this just isnít quite my thing.
Panty Peeks 1 is a different feature, and is one I think people are either going to love or be put to sleep by. The girls are decent looking, but so many of the scenes felt redundant to me that I couldnít care less by the end of the feature. As much as this feature missed me, the camera work and editing were pretty impressive and the feature shows some definite care. In what I think is a first for me, although Iím giving this DVD a very low score thereís enough done right technically that Iím actually looking forward to seeing more from the Brookland Brothers. Panty Peeks 1 gives you just what it claims to, but it isnít for everybody.
Extras: Thereís a trailer for the Casting Couch series and nothing else.
Themes: Softcore, tease, panties, and amateurs
Raincoat Factor: Very low
Overall: Currently, Pacific Northwest Amateurs: Panty Peeks 1 can be found online for $10. If this is your kind of thing this is going to be a bargain, but if not youíre going to feel like you threw it away. There isnít really anything for extras and the only audio is elevator music, but the video looks great.
Note to Brookland Brothers: Please donít take this review too hard. It looks like you were well focused on what you wanted here, and it just completely missed me. Iím pretty confident that if you took on a fetish I was more interested in that I would have been very happy. In the future, however, please donít have music as the only audio.
