The Short Story
Initial Expectations: The only compilation I’ve seen from California Star, Tied & Tickled Classics 25, didn’t impress me. I can’t get too excited about this one.
Initial Reaction: There’s a few good moments, but it’s a pretty hacked up and hacked up compilation.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody curious about California Star’s english spanking style
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting full scenes
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects leave plenty to be desired. The audio often has a hiss in the background, and the level varies slightly throughout the movie. There’s also a few minor background noises. The video is much the same. It’s nicely lit, but there’s a fair amount of grain, some fast camera motion, and even a little soft focus blurring.
Music: There’s a little music at the start of each scene.
Menus: The main menu is far from impressive. There’s a little generic animation in the background with the name of the DVD and a choice between the full movie and the individual scenes beside it.
The FeatureEnglish Punishment Series 37 collects parts of scenes from four different spanking features. At the start of each scene you’re told what feature the scene came from, but never anything about the cast or director.
|Scene 1 - Tanya, Samantha, and an old guy|
Caned By Major Jenkins starts things out. Two brunettes and a blonde start things out chatting in a room before the camera moves back to an older woman working a register outside. When a customer comes in you learn that the girls are all for rent, and she’s more than willing to rent them out for sex or anything else. He decides he doesn’t want sex, and instead would like to give them spankings. He starts with Tanya, a dark haired girl with several tattoos. He takes her over his knee while sitting on a sofa in the hallway, and starts spanking her ass through her skirt. After a bit he pulls down the skirt to spank Tanya’s nice plump bare ass. Soon after her panties disappear, Tanya’s taken to a spanking bench so the old guy can work her ass over with a paddle. Finally, he canes her.
Blonde Samantha is next, who is told to take her top off and lay across his knees. He spanks her with her hand before sliding her skirt down, and then continues to spank her just as he did with Tanya. Samantha is taken to the spanking bench for a paddling before the scene fades out.
This is an okay scene. I like how the spanking slowly builds, and how the girls go from the spanking barely registering to starting to have an effect. Unfortunately, there’s as much bad as there is good with the scene. The scene hits a bit of a rut by having the action repeated identically for both girls, as well as for being cut off at the end (easily the bigger sin). Mixing things up and showing all of the scene would have been a very large help here.
|Scene 2 - A blonde and a brunette|
Punishment Duties features a short haired dykish brunette going looking for a blonde and brunette who were supposed to be cleaning the pool. She’s none too happy to find them shirking their duties inside, and even less to find they have a bottle of wine. When they start whining about it being too cold out to clean the pool, she takes them up to the main house to heat things up for them. The blonde is given her discipline first, and lies over the brunette’s knee to have her ass spanked through her skirt. She moves things up a notch first by hoisting up her skirt for the spanking, and then another notch pulling down her white cotton panties for a bare assed spanking. She keeps moving the panties up and down, and nails nearly the exact same spot on each cheek with every slap. When the spanking stops, the blonde is told to remove her skirt and made to do some exercises for missing her PE lessons. Her panties are slid down after a bit so she has some nude humiliation before the mistress breaks out a leather paddle and has her grab her ankles. When she continues to whine, the brunette is sent for a spanking chair and the blonde gets spanked while bending over it.
This is a pretty good spanking scene. The setup is nicely done, and the blonde takes it very well. I like the addition of the nude humiliation, but the amount of backtalk without punishment just seemed wrong here. The girls seem to constantly backtalk the mistress, and she normally seems to let it go. Maybe this changes later, but I just don’t know since the scene is once again cut off, holding it back from what it might have been.
|Scene 3 - A young brunette and an older brunette|
Against Regulations features a younger brunette being called into the headmistress’s office because the headmistress heard rumors of her going down to the piercing parlour. She maintains that she doesn’t have any piercings as the headmistress tells her that she’ll be severely disciplined if she finds any during a full body search. She starts checking her tongue and then feels her nipples through her blouse. When she doesn’t find any there, she has her lift up her skirt and lower her knickers, where she finds a hood ring. She has the girl remove her shirt to show that she doesn’t have any other piercings before having her lay over her knee. When she lies on the headmistress’s knee her back tattoo is found and she starts to get spanked through her skirt. She gets her bare ass spanked next as the headmistress questions her about her piercing, and then gets a lecture about piercing afterwards. When the headmistress finds holes from other piercings, she gets out a paddle and has her bend over the desk to take a spanking or the headmistress tells her that she’ll inform her parents. The girl isn’t happy about it, but bends over and takes her spanking until the scene fades out.
This is a pretty good scene. There’s great interaction between the older gal and the younger girl, and they both play their roles very well. I love the little lecture between the hand spanking and the paddling, and once again things seem to get kicked up a notch with the paddle. Also once again, the biggest problem is that the scene was poorly cut off to be left hanging, rather than cutting it off at a decent place that would seem normal. It would have been very easily done with the lecture, and would have turned this from a pretty good scene into a very good scene.
|Scene 4 - A couple brunettes and an old guy|
A Fundamental Caning finishes things out with a brunette being disciplined by the headmaster for not following the school dress code. Her robes are opened and her shorts pulled down so her thong-clad ass can get a bare handed spanking. She whines and cries a little as she’s spanked before being sent to watch the wall. Another girl is brought in and given a bare-assed spanking over the headmaster’s knee before being told to stand next to her friend. He has them strip out of their outfits before having the brunette bend over a chair to get spanked with the paddle. He no sooner than gives her ass the first tap before the scene fades out.
This scene made me wonder if monkeys were used to put this compilation together. I soon after realized the idiocy of that thought when I realized that monkeys would probably put more care into it. This scene feels like it was edited with a chainsaw. The plot segments are mostly missing, and the spanking segments that do exist feel like a “best of the hand” compilation of the scene. There’s some good moments here that made me think that the original scene was probably pretty darn hot, but they’re fleeting moments that left me irritated and thinking not nice things about California Star. This scene definitely ends the compilation on a low note.
The Extra StuffNone.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, most California Star DVDs are found on the web for around $70 (yes, seventy). Although I couldn’t dream of paying that much for almost any DVD, they can sometimes be found reasonably used. If you’re interested in this one, aim cheap. There are no complete scenes in the movie, along with no extras. The technical aspects finish the package off by being weak as well.
Note to California Star: If you’re going to give incomplete scenes, at least have the decency to cut them at places that make sense! Doing it like this only makes you look like you don’t really care about your product. If you don’t care about the product you’re putting out, why should people enough to pay for it?
