The Little Details
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

The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty average for a homemade release. The audio is clear through much of the movie, but there's a fair amount of wind noise through the outdoor sequences, a little background noise, and a few minor balance problems. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks okay. There's some noticeable grain throughout the movie as well as a little camera motion and lighting imbalances.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally donít bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that stays in the lower right corner. 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 clips from the movie.
The FeatureElizabeth is a bottle blonde with nice big bolt-ons and pale skin. Her man Cyrus has sandy hair but prefers to keep most of himself behind their video camera. Here they decide to throw their hat into the homemade porn ring with a nice mix of sex as well as a few thoughts on it all.
|Scene 1 Ė Elizabeth and Cyrus Cox|
Cyrus looks around the wilderness with his camera before catching sight of blonde Elizabeth and tracking her down so she can give him a little show. She teases him with her ass and tits as well as playing with her pussy for him while giving him a little dirty talk. Elizabeth leads him to where she has a towel on the ground so she can kneel down and suck his cock. She never looks to take him into her throat, but gives Cyrus plenty of eager head with some nice eyes and stroking mixed in. Finally she takes a nice pop around her mouth.
This is a pretty good opening scene. Elizabeth isn't bad looking here, but there is something a little trashy about her that both worked and didn't for me. She really looks like she's having fun with the tease, and puts some nice effort into the cocksucking as well. This scene was a bit hit or miss for me, but it was more on the hit side and left me with a decent first impression.
|Scene 2 Ė Elizabeth and Cyrus Cox|
Elizabeth chats with Cyrus as they drive down the road, and lets him know that since they had so much fun in the great outdoors that they should bring it out a little more and starts to give him a little show playing with her pussy and showing off her tits as she drives down the road. She breaks out one of her nice big boobies and guides his hand to it before Cyrus decides to play with her pussy instead. He can't get a good view of her pussy as she drives with the camera, so Elizabeth has him check out her tits again instead. The scene cuts to them at their outdoors destination where Elizabeth quickly pulls out her tits and strips off her little denim skirt so he can play with and lick her pussy from behind. She turns around to suck and stroke his cock before they set the camera up on a tripod so they can kiss as Cyrus holds Elizabeth and plays with her. She moves up to ride him reverse cowgirl style before having him take her doggie style as they move more than a little closer to the camera. They take a break to reset the camera before going back to fucking doggie style with Elizabeth having a very nice orgasm and Cyrus following soon after with a pop on her ass. Afterwards they have a nice kiss and cuddle quickly before Cyrus gets up to grab the camera so everybody can admire his handiwork on her back and ass before they talk about what she loves and didn't like so much about their scene as well as sex in general.
This is a very fun scene. I love Elizabeth's tease as they go down the road, and having it happen while she drives only makes it better. There's great chemistry throughout the scene, and they keep it moving quite nicely. The little interview at the end of the scene is also great, and works very well due to Elizabeth seeming completely open and honest. This is another nicely done scene.
|Scene 3 Ė Elizabeth and Cyrus Cox|
Elizabeth poses outside in a pair of jeans, heels, and a tight black shirt before stripping off her top and dropping to her knees to tease his cock orally. She quickly goes to work sucking and stroking him, and gets more aggressive the longer she sucks him. Finally Elizabeth strokes Cyrus off onto her face and into her mouth while giving him plenty of smiles and a little more trash talk.
This is a pretty good oral scene. As many know I'm not a big fan of blowjob scenes, but it's fun to watch Elizabeth here as she really gets into it. There's a little wind noise and pixelation, but Cyrus does a nice job capturing the action and Elizabeth does a nice job capturing his pop on her face and in her mouth. This scene worked pretty well for me.
|Scene 4 Ė Elizabeth and Cyrus Cox|
Elizabeth shows off her new black and pink nightie for Cyrus to start out the penultimate scene. She shows off both the front and back before starting to play with herself. Elizabeth starts out with her fingers before moving on with a magic wand ball vibe that she uses first laying back and then on all fours which leads to some very nice orgasms.
This is a very nice masturbation scene. Elizabeth starts it out with a very enjoyable tease, and then keeps it moving very well with her masturbation. Cyrus captures it all very well with some nice support, and the scene ends with a good lead-in for the next scene. This is a short but nice scene.
|Scene 5 Ė Elizabeth and Cyrus Cox|
Elizabeth starts out the final scene stripping out of her new nightie and gesturing for Cyrus to join her. He moves in and lets her sniff her way around his stomach before starting to suck and stroke his cock. She teases him with her ass before getting down so he can fuck her from behind with her head buried against the floor and a chair, and even has him thumb her ass and spank her as he fucks her. They move around so she can ride him cowgirl style as well as taking it missionary style before Elizabeth has him cum on her tits and takes a few nice tastes of it. Finally they cuddle, kiss, and profess their love for each other before talking about their thoughts on their first video.
This is a great final scene. Not surprisingly the chemistry is great, and Elizabeth seems to be getting much more comfortable in front of the camera and I love how this scene picks up from where the previous scene left off. Elizabeth and Cyrus put out some very nice energy as they fuck, and once again Elizabeth puts out some great vocals to go with it. Their chat at the end raises the scene up even more, and left me looking forward to another video from them. This is a very good scene to close the movie with.
Elizabeth and Cyrus 1 is a very nice homemade debut. There are times that Elizabeth seems a touch generic to me due to her being a bottle blonde with bolt-ons, and although I'm not much of a fan of bolt-ons there's something about hers that still work for me. I think the main thing that makes the difference with Elizabeth is that she seems so comfortable with her body, and has such a natural willingness to show it off that it works. There's so many girls out there were their confidence is sadly related to their chest, and here that's not the case. Instead it's a case of Elizabeth loving tits and wanting more to love. She and Cyrus have great chemistry throughout the movie, and I love some of their little chats at the end of their scenes as they talk about sex and the movie. There's a good mix of action with Elizabeth getting plenty of chances to show off as well as showing her enjoyment of cocksucking and fucking. There are a few of the typical camera problems associated with homemade porn such as a little shaky camera work and getting a little too close to the tripod, but for a first release it really is captured quite nicely. Elizabeth and Cyrus 1 is an enjoyable homemade porn debut that has me looking forward to more in the future.

Elizabeth and Cyrus give a nice mix of action as well as some very nice personality. The technical aspects are pretty average for a homemade release, and very good when one considers that it's their debut. Since this is a Shot at Home release you also get a touch of effort put into the extras with a half hour preview reel. This is a nice homemade debut.
