The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty average to a little on the weak side until one considers one little thing, that these scenes were all shot in the very early 1990s. The audio is your typical Buttman audio. There's a few background noises, but they fit in with the reality feel of the movies. The video is a little weaker. The lighting varies quite a bit, going from very dark to very well balanced to very bright while often having just a tint of grain. The video is almost all shot by hand (if not completely shot by hand), yet there's almost no camera motion unless John is doing something like moving fast in character. This really speaks volumes about Stagliano's camera work, as it's every bit as smooth as much of the camera work of today before there was all the stuff to stabilize the video.
Music: There's a little music throughout the movie that's always nicely balanced with the rest of the audio.
Menus: The main menu does a decent job blending a bit of the action, some animation, an a still. The chapter menu is pretty simple, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the name of the girl.
The FeatureAbbot and Costello. Pasta and wine. Bill, Monica, and a dry cleaner. Government and waste. Some things just seem made to go together. Here, John Stagliano collects three of his earliest scenes with Rocco Siffredi on one release.
|Scene 1 – Zara Whites and Rocco Siffredi|
The first scene comes from Buttman’s Ultimate Workout. Smoking hot brunette Zara starts things out telling the camera “You drive me crazy” before running her hands around herself and a statue while describing just how crazy she's being driven and the things she might do. Soon after, the scene cuts to “reality” as she thanks John for helping her make a video to meet “Dario”. It moves to John showing Rocco the video and him sending John back telling her to show more. Zara gives him another tease in a tight gray and black striped knit dress that she slowly strips off to show herself in a mirror wearing only a white panties and stockings which show off her ass. She gets on all fours and plays with both of her holes a bit before sending John back to Dario with the new tape. This time, the tape works, and Rocco joins her at a piano with a soft kiss. They move to the bed to kiss and caress each other more, with Rocco playing with Zara's pussy a bit before ever letting her suck his cock. He goes back to lick each of her holes before fucking her from behind and spooning her. Rocco takes another break to worship and finger Zara's ass, and even lets her tongue his when she goes back to suck his cock. Rocco spoons Zara's ass before fucking it from behind, and finishes things up giving her a very nice facial.
This is a great scene to open things up with. I remember when I first watched this scene five or six years ago, and this scene hasn't lost a thing for me in that time. There's great chemistry, the tease you've come to expect from John Stagliano, and the passion for the female form you expect from Rocco. This is a very hot scene that's always put a smile on my face.
|Scene 2 – Sheila and Rocco Siffredi|
The second scene comes from Buttman Goes to Rio 3. Buttman flops in a chair on the beach next to Rocco to chat about Brazil, the beach, and the asses all around them. They “bump into” Filipe on the beach, who takes them around to meet some of the best girls on the beach as well as out to party at Carnival. At one of the clubs Rocco meets Sheila and they quickly hit it off. They kiss and play with each other on the dance floor before heading back to the hotel room where they keep it going as Rocco strips Sheila out of her shirt almost immediately to check out her tits before they head to the bed for Rocco to work Sheila over down below. She rewards his attention with a blowjob before lying back for a little missionary work. Rocco picks her up for a standing cowgirl ride before sitting back and letting her ride him. They also get in a little spooning, reverse cowgirl, and doggie before Rocco lets go with a very nice load on Sheila's ass. Afterwards he rubs his cock around her ass to spread it around a bit before sharing a few more happy kisses and a few laughs.
This is an okay scene. It really took it's time getting going, which was a very nice surprise. Most companies would have cut out all the butt watching at the beach and maybe even the club scene. Tease is some of what Stagliano does best, so it was great to see everything leading up to the sex left in. Shelia is a cute girl, and of course seemed to have a very nice time with Rocco. The problem here is the lighting. It varies a little, but for the most part is extremely dark and just dark enough to make it hard to see the action well. There's nice chemistry here, but the technical aspects really held this scene back for me.
|Scene 3 – Angela Summers, Rocco Siffredi, and John Stagliano|
The final scene comes from Buttman's Bend Over Babes 2. Looking out over the Vegas skyline Rocco lets John know that he really needs a girl quick and that John knows just what he likes. Things quickly cut to smoking hot dirty blonde Angela, who kisses Rocco passionately wearing a black jacket that falls open to show a great rack in a black bra. Rocco worships her tits a little before lying back and letting her worship his cock with her hands and mouth. They start fucking missionary style, and take a little break for some reverse cowgirl before going back to missionary for Rocco to take Angela to a great orgasm. They keep things going with a cowgirl ride before returning to missionary. They take a break for some sixty-nining with Angela eagerly eating Rocco's ass and sucking his cock clean, and Rocco even works Angela's fantastic ass over with a finger to try to warm it up for some buttfucking. He never does appear to get it in, but it gets John worked up enough that he can't help but pull out his cock for Angela to suck as Rocco gives it to her from behind. She sucks John to a facial, and after letting Rocco give her a little more missionary fucking, takes a great facial finish from Rocco as well.
Angela Summers is the first porn girl I knew by name thanks to her fantastic performance in Wild Goose Chase. Here, she turns out every bit as hot as a performance with Rocco, and they both look like they were completely into each other the entire time. There's sweat dripping off them almost the entire time, and they look like they might have each lost five pounds in water weight just working each other over. Even though Angela gave me a bigger blow-off than any other star I've met, I can't help but love her work due to scenes like this.
Buttman's Early Scenes with Rocco is a nicely done little compilation. It does a great job showing the tease aspect of Buttman's movies as well as the love of the female form that Rocco and Stagliano share. Although the three scenes didn't work to the same extent to me, I really do like the three scenes which were selected because they show a bit of the range between Rocco and John. My only real complaint with this compilation is that nowhere on the DVD is there a spot which lets you know where each of the scenes come from. Yes, there are filmographies to narrow it down for two of the girls, but there's nothing to let you know for sure where each of the scenes came from. Buttman's Early Scenes with Rocco is a great compilation for both fans of Stagliano and Rocco as well as those who are curious and are just looking forward to seeing why there's been so much hype about them for so many years.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery contains about two dozen very nice looking snapshots. Filmographires are included for all three girls, as well as a cast listing by scene and an autobiography of John Stagliano. Trailers are included for Buttman’s Anal Show 4 and The Fashionistas. There's also commercials and website information.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, tease, anal, rimming (male > female and female > male), anal, and group
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, the Buttman’s Favorites line can be found online for between about $12 and $28 with a few stores offering it for under $15. This is quite a bit less than the normal Evil Angel release, which is just how it was planned. It’s a cheap way to check out Evil Angel and John Stagliano, and for the price you just can’t go wrong. This one's no different with plenty of great sex like you could expect from Buttman and Rocco as they started out one of the best team-ups in the history of adult film. The technical aspects are very good for scenes as old as this, and there's a little effort put into the extras as well. This is a very nicely done compilation DVD.
Note to Evil Angel: Thanks for releasing these “intro to Evil Angel” type of cheap compilations. In the future, however, please go back to letting the viewers know where each scene comes from as you have in previous releases such as this.
