Initial Expectations: Although Iím not really a fan of oral movies, this series has been pretty good. Iím going in with a bit of hope as well as a little apprehension due to it being an oral movie.
Initial Reaction: Itís okay.
Who Should Watch It : Blowjob fans
Who Should Avoid It: Swallowing and deep throat fans
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects vary a bit from scene to scene. The audio has a few problems, such as almost completely disappearing for one scene and having a few background noises in others. The video is pretty good. It has just enough grain to give it a soft feeling that almost seems a little artistic. There are a few shadows, but for the most part it has a very realistic feel to the lighting.
Music: Thereís music in every scene. Itís a bit on the loud side normally and odds are youíve already heard it in one of Zoraís other movies. The familiarity actually hurts some of the scenes, and I found myself getting bored with a couple of the scenes just because the music was so familiar and dominant in the audio.
Menus: The main menu has some nice animation and gives a good first impression. As usual lately, the chapter menu is one of the best out there, and in addition to letting you choose between the start of the scene and the pop shot, lets you choose the scene based on a small clip of each scene and the names of the performers in the scene.
The FeatureThe Down Your Throat series concentrates on oral action. Unlike most oral features, however, each scene has a small setup. The girls often get a little oral attention before they put their oral talents to work, and the camera moves around as if itís a regular sex scene rather than an all oral feature that can be shot from a tripod.
|Scene 1 - Vanda and Clark|
When Vanda, looking extremely cute in a blue and white outfit with her hair in pigtails, finds Clark trying to clean up an old tuba, she tactfully asks him about blowing and sucking. He quickly gets the hint and unzips his pants so Vanda can start working her oral magic on his cock. She starts out standing in front of him before lying over the arm on the chair to orally clean Clarkís cock and then moving down to squat between his legs. Vanda even works in a little titty fucking and gives him great eyes and plenty of stroking until he explodes on her face.
This is a very nice opening scene. As usual, Vanda is extremely cute and had my attention as soon as she took to the screen. She looks like she had a lot of fun sucking cock here, and did a nice job mixing up playing to Clark and playing to the camera. This is a hot scene.
|Scene 2 - Lilit and Thomas Stone|
As they move some boxes around, hot brunette Lilit climbs up a ladder to put a few away. When she loses her box, Thomas catches it and notices that she isnít wearing any panties. She happily puts on a little show on the ladder for him before losing her skirt and letting Thomas eat and finger her pussy. She climbs down and goes right to sucking his cock while mugging the camera. They move on with a little sixty-nining before Lilit takes a decent pop across her tongue.
This is a scene that has a lot of potential and didnít quite make it for me. To start with, Lilit is gorgeous and somebody I really hope to see more of. She looked like she enjoyed sucking cock, and the camera captured it from a few angles. Unfortunately, Lilit felt the need to play to the camera no matter how far away it was and where it was shooting from. This definitely interfered with the scene for me, and left me wishing for a different style for the scene.
|Scene 3 - Evelin, Kati, and Alan Perrish|
Evelin and Katy start their scene out talking and enjoying umbrella drinks while Alan works out behind them. After he struts in front of them in his speedo they team up to work on him orally. Evelin and Katy work Alanís wedding tackle over until he pops, and then swap it between each other to finish things up.
This is a pretty decent scene. Iíll admit that I started to lose a little interest here just due to my not being much of an oral sex fan, but the cumswapping at the end definitely got my attention. This is ends up a pretty decent scene which redeems itself nicely at the end.
|Scene 4 - Lotti and Alex|
As Alex enjoys a bubble bath, butch bottle blonde Lotti comes in to check herself out in the mirror while wearing a pink skirt and a leopard print skirt. He strokes himself a little while watching her, and convinces her to join him. She strips down and rather than hopping in the tub, sits on the edge and starts mouthing his manhood. She slides into the tub to keep sucking Alexís cock before sitting down in it as he stands in front of her. Finally, Alex gives Lotti a nice and creamy facial.
This is a pretty good scene. Lotti has a nicely exotic look to her that really stood out in the movie. I also like that the camera work was a little more straightforward and that Lotti didnít mug the camera too badly. This is a pretty hot scene.
|Scene 5 - Honey Winter and Franky|
When Franky hears Honey come home, he quickly stops bopping his baloney and throws the magazine he was looking at underneath him. She sees the magazine, and quickly decides that her man needs some loving. She gets down on her knees to start sucking his cock before getting up to strip out of her little dress. She lies on her side on the couch so Franky can play with her shaved pussy as she continues to suck him. It doesnít take long for him to pop, and Honey doesnít look the happiest when he sprays his spunk across her tongue.
This is a decent scene. I really like the start of the scene, and Honey keeps things going nicely with her cocksucking skills. Unfortunately, Honeyís looking upset when he pops across her tongue knocks the scene back a bit. Itís a good scene, but far from great.
|Scene 6 - Vanessa Hill and Clark|
Clark starts out the next scene pouring hot brunette Vanessa a glass of white wine. It affects her immediately, as she wants to give him a blowjob right away. She drops to her knees and starts working her mouth and tongue up and down Clarkís cock. She gives him plenty of great eyes as she works him over, along with a few little smiles. She keeps her eyes and smile working right up to the end of the scene when Clark spews his seed onto her face.
This is a very hot scene. Vanessa looks like she loves to suck cock, and that helped me to love this scene. She lets her eyes do plenty of the work, but she doesnít come off as completely mugging the camera. Itís a fine line sometimes, but in the end I always ended up feeling like she was playing to the camera like it was her lover rather than that it was shiny and distracting her from her work. This is a great scene.
|Scene 7 - Gloria Venus, Ricky, and Thomas|
Coal black treessed Gloria starts out her scene doing a little tease on the couch before Ricky and Thomas show up with a gift for her. She pulls out a pair of small dildos, but throws them away to get at the real thing instead. She starts out moving back and forth sucking them as she sits on the couch before lying back on the couch to work them over. They even move to the floor so the guys can lay side by side and let Gloria suck them back and forth. Finally, she takes a fairly disappointing facial and makes it seem worthwhile with her enthusiasm for it, her bright eyes, and her dirty smile.
Gloria puts on a great show here, but the scene just didnít do a lot for me. It seemed like it was trying to see how much it could cram in during a short period of time, and every time I blinked it seemed like the position changed. This didnít let things build too well and although Gloria impressed me, the scene didnít.
|Scene 8 - Anett and Lucky|
Annett, a cute girl with a red dyed bob, a nose stud, and a tongue stud, smiles at the camera before leaning over to start sucking Lucky. He helps her to throat his cock repeatedly and takes to her through much of the scene. Finally, she takes a nice dose of dick droppings around her mouth.
This scene leaves me with mixed feelings. I really like Annettís look, and she does a great job of sucking cock. My problem is Lucky. Vocal guys are very hit or miss for me, and more often than not itís a miss. Lucky isnít lucky enough to beat those odds, and he left me spending a good portion of the scene wishing heíd shut up. He definitely interfered with the scene, and took what could have been a very good scene down to the average level for me.
|Scene 9 - Claudia Ferrari and Thomas Stone|
Knockout brunette Claudia starts things out on a ladder trying to change a lightbulb. When Thomas arrives and sees her having problems, he canít help but try to take her mind off it by caressing and kissing her ass. Thomas continues to act like a gentleman by climbing a couple steps up the ladder so Claudia can suck her cock without kneeling down on the hard tile floor. After a bit Claudia gets down on one knee to suck his cock, and she finishes things up taking a small pop in her mouth.
This is a pretty good scene. As usual, Claudia does a great job of sucking cock and I really like the style of the opening with the ladder. Unfortunately, it seems like Thomas has problems popping. Claudia seemed like she had to work really hard for the small pop and that it took forever to get there. The camera work often annoyed me as well, as it got so close that you couldnít even see all of Claudiaís head. This is a pretty hot scene with a couple minor problems.
|Scene 10 - Reka and Sisi|
Reka, a cute bottle blonde, starts things out diddling herself while taking to Sisi across the table. He comes around so that she can suck him before they both climb onto the table and keep it up. Reka mugs the camera mercilessly as she sucks Sisi from the side, and finishes things up with an okay pop that she lets dribble out of her mouth and down to her tits.
This scene didnít do a lot for me once again. Reka looks like she has a decent time sucking cock, but her camera mugging is so bad that Iím not sure she could even tell you what color Sisiís hair was by the end of the scene. It held the scene back badly, and I was left wondering how good of a blowjob scene Reka could give if she decided to focus on her partner rather than the camera.
|Scene 11 - Betty, Thundy, and Thomas|
When Thomas gets sick, he lies back and takes his own temperature. Thankfully, he does it orally, and his oral thoughts quickly turn into delusions as brunettes Betty and Thundy appear in nurses outfits and start sucking his cock. As they trade back and forth, they work on each other lightly and even let Thomas play with them. Finally, the girls lie back next to each other and let Thomas unleash a decent dose of nutty goodness across their faces.
This is another likeable scene. I love the opening as well as the nurses costumes. I also like how the girls get into each other a little as well as Thomas. Once again the scene seems to move along a little too fast, but thereís enough going good for this scene that it still ended up a little above average for me.
|Scene 12 - Angelina Crow and Alan Perrish|
Angelina, a cute brunette that looks fantastic in her orange lingerie, starts out the penultimate scene going in to find Alan lying on the bed spread eagle. She drops her stuffed animal next to him and kisses her way down his chest to start sucking his cock. She continues to suck Alan as he stands up, and even pops open her lingerie to show off her nicely natural tits. Angelina picks things up as she sucks and strokes him, and keeps sucking Alan as he lies back before taking a turn on her back that finishes with her getting a nice facial.
Angelina turns out a very nice scene. She looks fantastic in her outfit and has a fire in her eyes that put a smile on my face and drew me into the scene. I love how she appears to get more and more into the cocksucking as it goes, and her little smiles and eyes helped this scene to end up nicely hot.
|Scene 13 - Kitty Sixx and Franky|
After Clark takes a break from their chess match, Franky gets a little oral attention from blonde Kitty. She starts out working him over orally before eagerly sliding his cock between her tits and bouncing up and down in front of him. Franky stands up for Kitty to suck him before letting her sit back in his chair and finish things up with a nice facial.
This is a pretty average scene. Kitty has a face that goes between ďcuteĒ and ďbitchyĒ, and she has a tendency to push things to the point that I almost started chuckling a few times. She did it enough that I had a hard time finding her believable and the scene ended the movie on a low note for me because of it.
Down Your Throat 4 is a pretty good blowjob movie. The girls are nice looking, and thereís a very nice variety to the looks of the girls. I really like how the scenes normally start with a quick lead-in as well as there being a little effort put into things like the costumes. Zora seems like she makes a good attempt to capture the action from a few different angles, but unfortunately it seems like she also wants the girls to play to the cameras no matter where she has them. This really interfered with some of the scenes for me. My other big problem is that the scenes are almost all standard blowjobs. Thereís very little deep throating, and the girls always take it as a pretty standard facial. With a title like Down Your Throat, I donít think Iím alone in expecting a bit of swallowing or the girls to deep throat the cocks. Itís a recurring complaint Iíve had with this series, and although I enjoy the scenes as they are Iím still a little disappointed that they donít match the title too well. Down Your Throat 4 shows some nice care that helps lift it beyond the average blowjob movie, but it doesnít quite get up to what you might expect from the title.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Camel Toe Perversions, Cum Catchers, Easy Prey, Legal Skin 16, My Playtoy 3, and Shitty Shitty Bang Bang. The photo gallery lasts about two minutes with six seconds per very nice looking snapshot. The snapshots are nicely organized with one snapshot to the chapter so you have the ability to move through the photos faster if youíd like. Thereís also weblinks and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts nearly thirteen minutes and is the same featurette which was included on Killer Grip 2. Zora makes her way around the set as everybodyís hanging around and getting ready to do their scenes. She checks out the girls, as well as the guys, and makes sure they introduce themselves so people know whoís who. It mixes in a few of the still photos and the scenes being shot, but always seems to capture the personality of the performers. It also seems to do a fantastic job of capturing all of the things that go on at a porn set by panning around to capture everything else going on in the room during some of the ďwork sequencesĒ. My only complaints here are the technical aspects. The audio balance is sometimes off a little, which makes it hard to hear some of the people. The video is also a little dark, but the degree varies throughout the movie. Even with the technical aspects being a little weak, itís a nicely done behind the scenes featurette that adds a lot to the overall DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, oral, titty fucking, group, cumswapping, and lesbian (light)
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Smash DVDs can be found online for between $14 and $24 with most stores offering them in the $20 range. Iíd rent this one first unless youíre a big blowjob fan. The scenes have some nice variety to them and the technical aspects are pretty good. Thereís even a little effort put into the extras, but some people might have already seen the behind the scenes featurette.
Note to Smash Pictures: A little more effort on deepthroating or cum swallowing would seem like a very good idea for this title. As is, I can see people checking it out for the first time being very disappointed with ďDown Your ThroatĒ normally referring to either of those acts.
