Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects show some very nice care. The audio is clear and nicely balanced, and I didn't notice any background noises. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks very good. The picture is clear with very well done lighting and solid camera work. Due to the magnitude of this production and the amount of production values I couldn't help but wish that this release would have come out as a DVD + Blu-Ray combo as I think it would really be impressive with the higher quality technical aspects Blu-Ray allows.
False Advertising: I'll admit to being surprised at this, as Wicked Pictures normally delivers everything they advertise and more. Here, however, the cover lists a bonus scene from Breaking Up between Alektra Blue and Seth Gamble that I couldn't find anywhere on the DVD. I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
The Movie: jessica drake narrates this collection of five naughty fairy tales that are brought back from the version people know to their darker and sexier earlier versions.
|Scene 1 – jessica drake and Xander Corvus|
jessica starts out with the tale of Rumpelstiltskin about the miller's daughter who's nearly caught in a lie of being able to spin straw into gold. When the king leaves her in a room full of straw to turn into gold with a promise to make her his bride if her tale's true, she doesn't know that to do until Xander arrives telling her that he can deliver what she can't. He charges a kiss the first night, and then insists that jessica suck and stroke his cock the next. She resists at first, but gives in both nights. As usual with jessica she puts some very nice effort into her cocksucking duties. Naturally the fee goes up the third night, as Xander asks for more once again, and after they kiss Xander moves down to eat jessica's box as she lays back on the straw. He stands up to fuck jessica missionary style before taking her from behind. Finally Xander pops on jessica's great ass.
|Scene 2 – Ash Hollywood, India Summer, and Seth Gamble|
In jessica's tale, Hansel and Gretel (aka Seth and Ash) were young lovers who ran away together instead of brother and sister. When they find the house of gingerbread and candy, the witch inside changes herself into the sexy form of India to lure them inside where she has a table of treats as well as more goodies for them to eat. After the first bite they collapse on the table together while kissing around with each other. The girls team up on Seth's cock orally with Ash leading the charge Ash lays back on the table for Seth to fuck her missionary style as India offers her oral skills to each of them as well as letting Ash suck her tits. Seth lets India ride him reverse cowgirl style while Ash watches and plays with herself before playing with Ash and sharing a few treats with each of them as Seth takes Ash from behind. Seth also takes India missionary style before spewing his seed between Ash's mouth and India's pussy. Ash licks up Seth's seed and comes back up to share it with India with a little cum swapping.
|Scene 3 – jessica drake, Brad Armstrong, Dale Dabone, and Marcus London|
jessica returns as Goldilocks, finding a cabin in the woods with three bowls of porridge and three beds, before falling asleep and then being found by three bear hunters. She offers to repay them for their kindness, offering to cook and clean, but Dale, Marcus, and Brad have other ideas and soon after jessica is on her knees finding one cock's too big, another's too small, but the third is just right. jessica sucks and strokes her way around the guys, and finally takes one load after another on her eager pretty face.
|Scene 4 – Tanya Tate and Kris Slater|
Not yet a man, but not a puppet either, Kris plays Pinocchio with “Blue Fairy” Tanya visiting him on his eighteenth birthday as his father punishes him for lying by making him work in the toy shop. As she hears of his plight she offers to make him a man. Tanya gropes his cock and kisses him before starting to undress him, and moves down to tease him through his pants with plenty of kisses, groping and trash talk before turning her great oral skills loose on it. Tanya lays back for Kris to tongue and finger her twat in return, and then gets up to ride him reverse cowgirl style. He also takes her from behind and missionary style before shooting an impressive load over Tanya's stomach and tits.
|Scene 5 – Alektra Blue, jessica drake, Kortney Kane, Derrick Pierce, Eric Masterson, and Rocco Reed|
Voyeuristic Humpty had a few too many pints as he sat on the wall watching the king's whores and the kings men who he pays to put on a show for him. Jessica tarts out in the middle letting Alektra eat her box as she sucks Derrick's dick while Kortney sucks her way between Rocco and Eric. Eric moves on to take Kortney from behind as jessica sucks Rocco and Derrick fucks Alektra from behind with her giving jessica a little oral help on Rocco. The three couples continue to mix things up with couples and threesomes so everybody gets a little of everybody else before jessica takes a pop on her ass from Derrick and Kortney takes Rocco's cock cream on her ass and thigh with Alektra right there to eagerly lick it up and swap it down to her. Finally jessica takes one last load from Eric over her tongue before they each cuddle in their couples.
Craving 2 is a fun little fuck flick. When it comes to production values and art directions, Brad Armstrong has never appeared to be one to skimp, and that's a large part of what makes this one work. The sets and costumes are fantastic, and take what could be a fairly cheesy and generic collection of adult fairy tales and makes it something hot and classy. The other part of what makes much of it work is the sweet voice of jessica drake, who does fantastic narrating the tales while also looking smoking hot and adding great little naughty looks. As for the sex, it's all nicely done. Not surprisingly jessica drake stands out once again, as she turns out a hot scene with Xander, a nice oral scene, and an orgy scene, and Tanya Tate also stands out extremely well due to a wonderfully filthy mouth. The threesome between India, Ash, and Seth works quite nicely, and although I wish the orgy scene would have lasted a bit longer, Alektra, Kortney, and the guys deliver nicely there too. If there's a complaint here it's that some of the scenes could have been a little longer, as jessica's Goldilocks scene seemed extremely quick and the orgy could have easily been twice as long. That said, Craving 2 is a visual feast with some hot and fun sex that's well worth checking out.
The Extras: Trailers are included for The Craving 2, as well as six other releases. The photo gallery lasts nearly four minutes. There's also behind the scenes featurettes, a bonus scene, and commercials.
Girls of the Craving 2 lasts a little over six minutes and is devoted to the photo shoots. The girls are nicely identified as they pose for stills, and naturally there's plenty of eye candy. This is a nice little featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about eight and a half minutes. The lovely jessica drake introduces the movie amongst plenty of shots around the set before talking about her Goldilocks scene and Ash, India, and Seth's Hansel & Gretel scene. jessica talks about the Rumpelstiltskin scene before working on it with Xander as well as introducing the Humpty Dumpty orgy. This is an okay behind the scenes featurette. There's plenty of eye candy with jessica introducing things, but she's the only cast member who interacts with the camera much and there's plenty of footage of guys standing around with cameras. This featurette adds a little to the overall DVD, but not a lot.
|Bonus Scene – Kaylani Lei, jessica Drake, and Wolf Hudson|
The bonus scene comes from Sexy. jessica starts on a chair in front of the makeup mirrors in a pink corset and sexy stockings with Wolf kissing her and groping her from the front as Kaylani kisses her and gropes her from the rear in a similar outfit. Kaylani comes up so they can play with her pussy and Wolf can eat and finger it before they work the oral all around each other. Kaylani gets the first fuck from behind as jessica continues to watch and diddle before the girls suck him clean and he lets jessica have it missionary style. Kaylani also gets a little missionary work before Wolf sprays his seed between their titties and they suck the last bit out.
This is an okay scene. At a little under ten minutes it seemed overly short, and like it needed another position or two. There's nice chemistry between the girls, but again I wanted more with the girls playing with each other a bit while getting fucked rather than watching and playing. This isn't a bad scene, but it left me wanting more from start to finish.
Condom Usage: 100%
Final Thoughts: It's a very solid rental bordering on a purchase.
Note to Wicked Pictures: Please watch your cover claims a little better. It always sucks to have to penalize a product as solid as yours.
