NOTE: This is an amateur video. Amateur and homemade movies donít have the budget nor the resources of studio porn, and therefore rarely get close to the same quality technically. Iím rating this DVD on the same scale, but most homemade or amateur features would rarely make it above a 3 on the standard scale I use for studio porn for their technical aspects. The performers also arenít normally the Ďglamour starsí one expects from studio porn, and instead use people who look like somebody you might encounter in your day to day life. Finally, the camera work has a different feel, as itís often shot from a tripod or with somebody who doesnít have the technical training or experience of professional cameramen. That said, amateur and homemade features have a great charm to them, simple because the people in them are doing what theyíre doing to have fun and because they enjoy it. All the things that separate them from studio porn contribute to that charm, I hope people will keep that in mind when checking out this review and not just look at the ratings as the ultimate word on this release. Since the technical aspects are normally lacking and there normally isnít much for extras in amateur features, Iíve weighted my overall rating more heavily towards the sex than I do in most studio porn.

The Short Story
Initial Expectations: As with all other Shot at Home releases, I can't help but go into this one without very high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It's pretty good, but not quite up to my normal expectations for Shot at Home.

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a lot of vocals or energy
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are fairly average for amateur porn, and a little weak overall. The video has a fair amount of static in the back, and much of the time it's hard to ignore. Beyond the static, the audio is fairly well balanced and clear. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks pretty good. There's a little bit of uneven lighting and a bit of grain throughout the movie.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally donít bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that barely ever moves. This made it very easy to filter out for me, and quite honestly, I didnít notice it unless I thought about it.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu keeps Shot at Homeís usual style with their logo and a photo from the movie. The chapter menu is also simple, and lets you choose where to go in the movie based on six stills.
The FeatureBrenda is a redhead with decent tits and a very natural body with the curves women should have. Collin's a longhair who appears to stay behind the camera. Thankfully they used their camera to capture some of their fun, and four scenes of it are collected here.
|Scene 1 - Brenda and Collin|
Brenda starts out under a blanket looking a bit bored before coming out wearing long underwear and moving over to suck and stroke Collin's cock. She makes sure to give his balls plenty of attention as she works him over orally, and gives him plenty of spit to keep him lubed up. Collin gives her a little warning before popping in Brenda's mouth, and she gags a little as he blows. She spits it back out over his cock, and then strokes his cock a bit as he begs her to stop. She gives him a smile before cleaning up both of them.
This is a fun little blowjob scene. Brenda seems to like Collin's balls more than his cock with how she goes after them with her pierced tongue compared to his cock, which rarely gets more than the head sucked. The ending with her torturing him by stroking his cock is what really makes the scene, and although I'm not a fan of oral scenes I couldn't help but enjoy this one just due to how much they both seemed to enjoy that. This is a good start to the movie.
|Scene 2 - Brenda and Collin|
After about a minute of a black screen, Brenda, wearing only a pink towel, moves herself up and slides her pierced bald beaver over Collin's cock cowgirl style. She lays back with both of them putting in a little motion and rubs her clit before getting up to ride him reverse cowgirl style so he can admire her ass. Brenda lays back for a good hard fucking missionary style before rolling over for Collin to fuck her doggie style. Finally, Collin pulls out and pops on Brenda's nice ass.
This is a pretty hot scene. It's nicely shot in POV, and Brenda goes from very quiet and laid back to putting in a bit of energy and some nice vocals, Best of all, she really looks spent by the time the scene is done and they share a few nice laughs that make it all the better. Collin works the camera nicely and keeps it surprisingly steady as he fucks Brenda, and there's some good chemistry to come through as well. This is a pretty good scene.
|Scene 3 - Brenda and Collin|
Brenda, in jeans and a hooded Jack Daniels sweatshirt, drops down to start sucking Collin for the penultimate scene. After sucking and stroking him a bit, Brenda lays back, oils up her tits, and lets Collin move in so she can stroke the oil off her hands on his cock and then let him fuck her tits. After fucking her tits a bit, Collin pops above them and lets Brenda rub it in. She even strokes his cock a bit before the scene fades out.
This is another nicely done POV scene. Brena picks things up nicely as she goes, and the titty fucking really added nicely to the movie. I love the little smile that crosses her face as he pops and how it grows after she strokes him a little more. This is another simple but good scene.
|Scene 4 - Brenda and Collin|
Brenda starts out the final scene laying on the bed and stripping off her sweatpants and wifebeater. Collin moves in and squats over her face sos he can start sucking him as he begins to play with her pussy. He moves on to fuck it with a large pink dildo before sliding behind her to spoon her. Collin also fucks Brenda doggie and missionary style before nutting in her pussy. He grabs the camera to go in for a close-up and see some of the cum running out.
This is a good final scene. Brenda and Collin have great chemistry, and it's nice to see Collin get in front of the camera a bit as well. They move through the positions nicely, and I love the look on Brenda's face after she takes the cream pie. The cream pie was the main thing that drew me into this release, and Brenda took it very well with some nice looks afterwards. This is another nice scene.
Brenda and Collin 3 is a decent release. Watching it I was reminded on how there's often two types of sexual performers, those who internalize it and those who externalize it. The externalizers are easy to find in mainstream porn, with the extreme ones screaming their heads off and gyrating as if somebody shoved a motorized hula hoop into one of their orifices and left it running. The internalizers are much more laid back, and although you can tell they enjoy what they're doing, they're often very quiet and just give a few smiles to let you know how much they're enjoying themselves. I really like a performer about halfway in between, but often lean towards the externalizers instead of the internalizers. Why's that important here? Easy, Brenda is a major internalizer. You can see that she's enjoying herself, and yes, she does give some great smiles, but she rarely gets vocal or starts bucking around like she's playing charades and trying to get people to guess that she's riding a mechanical bull wearing red cowgirl boots with a baby blue straw hat. For those who like girls who are a bit more internal than external with their enjoyment of sex, Brenda and Collin 3 should really please them. Those who lean more towards those who externalize their pleasure, however, will probably be a bit disappointed. Brenda and Collin 3 is far from a bad amateur release, but it is a bit different from my tastes in sex despite having a nice cream pie.
The Extra StuffAs usual with Shot at Home, there's about a half hour of clips from other Shot at Home releases.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, homemade, oral, POV, titty fucking, toys, and cream pie (vaginal)
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Shot at Home's DVDs can be found on their website for around $20. I'd aim a bit low on this one. Brenda and Collin do a decent job, but the enjoyment seems to be a bit more internal than what I like when watching porn. The technical aspects are also a bit weak due to the static in the background of the audio and the video has a bit of grain. There is, however, some of the usual nice effort Shot at Home puts into their releases. This is a decent amateur release.
Note to Shot at Home: I know that this one wasn't quite my thing, but it's great to see a bit of variety to your releases.
