The Short Story

Initial Expectations: Ethan Kane's TeraVision debut Decadence blew me away and is one of the best adult movies I've watched this year. I can't help but have sky-high expectations for this one after the job he did there.

Initial Reaction: It's a huge sophomore slump for Ethan Kane and TeraVision and extremely forgettable.

Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a bit of beauty who's going to only watch one scene at a time

Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a little creativity or a movie that feels like a bit of something

The Technical Stuff

Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are okay. The audio is clear and free of background noises, but the balance seems to vary throughout the movie as I found myself repeatedly turning it up and then hoping not to be blown away later. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks okay while mixing in a little black and white footage with the full color footage. It has the washed look that Kane likes to use for his movies, and that helps to give it a nicely artistic feeling without going overboard. The lighting is well done and the camera work is smooth.

Music: There's a bit of techno music that works well for the style of the movie and varies a bit in balance with the rest of the audio throughout the movie.

Menus: The main menu has some very nice style, and blends a a few clips form the movie and the titles for a very nice first impression. The chapter menu continues a bit of the feel, but sadly just gives a clip of each scene and a scene number to choose from, and leaves off anything really useful, like the names of the performers in each scene. This always surprises me with studios headed by girls who have risen in the industry as much as Tera has. I can't help but think that Tera would want her fans to be able to find her scenes as easily as possible when they pick up one of her movies, and am kinda surprised she wouldn't give the stars in her company's movies the same consideration in return.

The Feature

Ethan Kane keeps things simple for Glamcore. Each scene starts out with the girl dressed in a bit of lingerie with a feather boa. She makes her way around a rotating stage with a kind of fashion show feel before moving to a bed to work herself over naturally. After a bit she's normally joined by a guy for a bit of sex.

Scene 1 Katarina Kat and Nick Manning

Blonde Katarina starts out in a black feather boa, frilly green lingerie, and sexy shoes with straps that run almost up to her knees. She strips down and puts on a bit of a show before moving to a bed covered with a velvet blanket and fingering her pussy. After giving herself a nice little orgasm, the boa reappears, the bed and stage start spinning, and Nick appears to watch her with a slight smile on his face. Katarina goes right to sucking his cock when he gets in front of her and then lays back so he can lick and finger her in return. Nick fucks her missionary style before she sucks him clean and gets up for a reverse cowgirl ride. Katarina also gets on all fours for some doggie fucking before taking a nice facial finish.

This scene leaves me with a bit of mixed feelings. On one hand, the artistic feeling of the scene is pretty well done and I like the style with the outfits and the fashion show. The washed look that Kane likes to use doesn't work quite as well for me, but there's some good chemistry between Katarina and Nick that makes up for it. I think the biggest disappointment with the scene for me, however, is that Katarina comes off as just a typical porn chick rather than showing off her flexibility and energy. This scene might make it slightly past the average mark, but compared to some of Katarina's other scenes I couldn't help but be a little disappointed.



Scene 2 Faith Leon and Tommy Gunn

Brunette Faith starts out her scene in a black and white boa with a little black and white bra and panties. She shows off and plays with herself on a white velvet covered bed before Tommy appears for her to gobble his knob on all fours from the bed. Faith mixes in a little stroking and some eyes before letting Tommy fuck her missionary style and spoon her. She also gets in a reverse cowgirl ride before dropping down to take a nice pop over her tongue.

This is another decent scene. Kane's style feels a little limited here, and there was very little about this scene to set it apart from the previous scene. Faith gets surprisingly vocal throughout the scene, but it feels like it's being slowed down a bit with Tommy making up for it by slamming himself into her even harder. Although there's nothing bad about this scene, there's also nothing to make it feel special in any way either.



Scene 3 Bobbi Starr and Samantha Ryan

Blonde Samantha, in a little purplish bra and panties, and Bobbi, in a little black bra and panties, each show off a bit on the stage before coming together on a velvet magenta covered bed. Bobbi rubs Samantha's pussy as they kiss before Samantha snakes a hand down to Bobbi's pussy and then eats her as Bobbi lays back on the bed. Bobbi has Samantha suck a small green glass toy before fucking her with it missionary style and then gets on all fours for Samantha to fuck her with a multicolored glass dildo. The girls watch each other as they finish themselves off naturally before closing things holding each other close and kissing.

This is a hot scene. The repetitiveness of the location does nothing for me, but this time there's some great chemistry between the girls. Both Bobbi and Samantha look great, and for some reason having the two girls together with the setup worked much better for me than having the guy appear with the girl in the setup. The action is a bit limited and there were a couple times where it seemed like Bobbi wanted the action to get a little nastier, but at the same time the girls feel like they're very into each other. This scene has a couple minor flaws, but it's also the best in the movie.



Scene 4 Annette Schwarz and Mario Rossi

Annette starts her scene out in red and black lingerie with black stockings and a red and black boa showing off and then working herself over naturally on a red velvet covered bed. Mario appears and watches her before his clothes magically disappear and he's at the edge of the bed with Annette working him over orally, mixing in a little dirty talk and plenty of spit, stroking, and throat. Annette gets up to ride him cowgirl style before letting Mario spoon her and fuck her doggie style. Finally, Annette takes a nice pop in her mouth and looks to swallow much of it down.

This is another okay scene. Annette looks great and gets into the scene decently, but there's absolutely nothing to make her scene feel at all different from the first two scenes beyond the color of the bed and outfit. Everything else feels completely recycled, and even with a star as great as Annette, it just seems wrong with how quickly my eyes started to glaze over watching this scene. One scene like this wouldn't be bad, but for three out of four, it quickly got old and I couldn't help but reach for the remote.



Scene 5 Nikki Dominik and Pike Nelson

Brunette Nikki starts her scene out in a little pink and black lingerie strutting her stuff and then masturbating on a dark greenish-brown velvet covered bed. Pike gives her a kiss when he joins her before she (yes, you guessed it) gets on all fours to suck his cock. Nikki rides him in each of the cowgirls before letting him spoon her. Finally, she takes a decent facial finish.

Yes, with Nikki the 'three out of four' in the previous scene goes to 'four out of five' and my remote started to wonder what the heck it did to get so much attention. Nikki looks like she gives a good fuck and isn't bad looking, but due to the repeated style of the scene I quickly found myself not caring about the scene at all. Unfortunately for Nikki, her scene is the last in the movie which makes it the least likable due to how little creativity came out through the scene and how redundant it was. This scene ended the movie on a low note just by being darn near the same exact scene as four others in the movie.



With Glamcore, Ethan Kane tones the action back from the harder edge of Decadence and instead focuses on beauty and style with his same artistic eye. Sadly, that isn't enough here. Kane starts with a good idea by having a nice mix of girls showing off a bit in lingerie on a stage, but rather than seeing how he could mix it up or take it further he instead chose to drive it into the ground. The only thing that really gives any variety in the four boy girl scenes in the movie is the color of the velvet blanket on the bed, and I've never been that turned on by blankets. The sex is tame and extremely repetitive, and while some scenes feel like they're done decently, others feel held back or like they aren't close to using the full potential of the stars. This feeling makes it easy for Bobbi Starr and Samantha Ryan's scene to come out as the best of the bunch, but even it suffers from the things which hold back the rest of the movie. A little anal, a group scene, or even just starting with a little oral action for the girls rather than having every single scene start out with the girl sucking cock on all fours would have greatly helped out the movie, as would have changing up the outfits a little. Glamcore is a one trick pony that's begging for a trip to the glue factory.

The Extra Stuff

Trailers are included for Appetite for Destruction, Test Drive, SeXXXpose Nikk Benz, SeXXXpose Lexi Marie, SeXXXpose Brittney Skye, SeXXXpose Tiffany Taylor, American MILF, Teradise Island: Anal Fever, Reign of Tera 2, Decadence, Stimula, China Blue, and the Virtual Tera Patrick 3D PC game. The photo gallery lasts about two and a quarter minutes with about four seconds per very good looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also internet information and a behind the scenes featurette.

The behind the scenes featurette lasts just under twenty minutes and is very nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen. As a behind the scenes featurette, this one just doesn't seem to be a behind the scenes featurette. It's completely set to music with no other audio, and is edited together in the same style as the movie just showing the girls doing their tease openings. If you loved those tease openings in the main movie this featurette will probably work for you in a big way, but since the entire movie did very little for me I was looking for something else here. Due to this hope and expectation, it's no surprise that this featurette fell on its face for me as well. It's a nice addition to the DVD for those who enjoyed the movie, but those who didn't will find nothing new to like here.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff

Themes: Straight, masturbation, lesbian, and toys

Raincoat Factor: Medium

Condom Usage: None

The Bottom Line:

Currently, many of TeraVision's DVDs can be found online for between about $19 and $25 with several stores offering them for about $20. If this one interests you, rent it before you buy it. If the style works for you it might be worth the money, but if it doesn't the entire movie is going to fall very short for you (as it did for me). The technical aspects are pretty average, but there is a bit of effort put inot the extras. The overall DVD shows some nice effort here, but the movie itself did nothing for me.

Note to TeraVision: It's great to see you going a little more artistic with your releases and showing such care towards your overall DVDs, but this one just didn't do it for me.
