Initial Expectations: I havenít heard much of anything about this series, but with April, Sky, and Claudia in it Iím expecting some scorching scenes.
Initial Reaction: Thereís a nice focus on feet and some good scenes, but the camera work holds it back.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes gonzo porn thatís on the very basic side.
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who likes very high quality gonzo porn.
Audio /Video Quality: The audio varies quite a bit, but for the most part it sounds kind of hollow. Itís a typical problem with gonzo porn and not the only gonzo problem to appear here. Thereís also some shaky camera work, some fairly minor focus problems, and a few places where the shadows get in the way a bit. The camera work is the biggest problem, and moves aorund to the point I felt slightly nauseous a couple times.
Music: Thereís a little music during the lead-ins to the scenes that fits pretty well but is a bit on the loud side. Once the sex starts, however, the music disappears.
Disc Problems / Complaints: OGV has a commercial for their website at the start of the DVD that you canít skip past. You can only scan past it or watch it. This is a huge pet peeve for me, and guarantees that I wonít be visiting OGVís website since itís obviously of the quality that you have to force advertisements on people to get it into their head rather that letting positive word of mouth travel on it or give people the choice to watch it.
Menus: The menus are very nicely done. The main menu has some decent animation that gives it a nice feel when you get there. You have to deliberately choose to see the main menu, unlike the commercials, since the DVD goes directly to the movie and automatically restarts. The chapter menu lets you choose what part of the scene you want to go to, along with who the performer is in the scene, after you select a scene from the main menu based on a small clip of the scene and a title for it. Theyíre very nicely done menus that show quite a bit of care.
The Feature: Once again, a porn star has found their way behind a camera. This time itís Alex Sanders. His Head Over Heels series brings feet to the front of many of the scenes without making it the only thing. The feature is shot vignette style, with each scene standing on its own merits or lack thereof.
Claudia Adkins, a cute raven haired European with a great natural body, starts things out in Jewelry For the Feets. She talks about her feet before decorating them with jewelry from a box she brought with her, while narrating the entire thing. It gets her turned on and in the mood for cock, so itís a good thing Alex Sanders is ready, willing, and nearby. They lightly play with each other and Claudiaís feet before she moves over to give Alex an energetic bolowjob including quite a bit of deep throating. Alex returns the favor by giving Claudia some great oral attention for her ass, as well as a couple fingers for her holes. He works her ass up to four fingers before sliding himself into her pussy as she continues to lay back on the couch. Claudia moves up into Alexís lap and fucks him with both her pussy and ass before she lets Alex fuck her ass from behind. Alex finally pulls out and gives Claudiaís feet a little extra decoration. Itís a pretty hot scene, but the camera style didnít do too much for me. Claudia did a great job, and showed some really nice enthusiasm throughout the scene. Unfortunately, the camera seemed more focused on her snatch and Alexís face and balls once the fucking started than her face.
Nadia Foster, an average looking bleached blonde with nice little tea-cup titties, starts the next scene, tactfully called Me and My Bitches, getting out of a pool, putting some lotion on her feet, and then laying out in the sun. She investigates a noise only to find out itís Kyle Stone and Rick Masters, whoís no doubt there to make Kyle look like an attractive guy. She tells them she wants them to leave and runs off with them chasing them. After kicking them in the place made popular by shows like Americaís Funniest Home Videos, she makes it clear that it was a set up to get her turned on and kisses their boo-boos to make it better. They work around warming each other up, including toe-ing, footjobs, and some fairly typical oral sex. Continuing to follow orders, Kyle licks it before he sticks it while Nadia continues to suck Rickís cock. She takes a turn riding Rickís cock also, and then has Kyle drive his cock into her ass while she continues to sit on Rickís cock. Rick takes a turn in Nadiaís ass as well, although itís not for a double penetration, before Nadia finishes Kyle off with her feet and has Rick pop on her feet. Itís a pretty good scene, but some of the attitude in the scene didnít do much for me. Nadia came off kind of bitchy, and it just didnít really work for me.
Misty, an average looking Latino, starts off Hooker Foot with Jay Ashley while the camera focuses on their feet. They talk about having sex, with Misty being kind of dirty while Jay comes off as kind of a loser (Iím not sure if this is acting or not). Misty finally starts sucking his cock as he lays back in a chair, and then goes directly to riding Jay reverse cowgirl. They move on through spooning, doggie, and missionary before Misty gets some spunky feet (and no, Iím not talking about dancing). The opening is kind of amusing, but the rest of the scene is a bit on the eh side of things. The chemistry seemed to be lacking and the scene had me fairly bored.
Just Hooker features the stunningly underrated April with Alex Sanders. They get the money stuff out of the way, and then April gives Alex a nice foot job. After getting a little more money, April sucks Alexís cock with quite a few throat thrusts and strips out of her skimpy outfit. Alex returns the favor by orally attacking both of Aprilís holes, and paying quite a bit of attention to her ass. He moves on to fuck her missionary style while April works back at him with her pelvic gyrations that I think she might have patented. She moves on to ride him cowgirl style with Alex finishing things off by pulling out and gushing onto her feet. Iím not sure Iíve seen April in a scene that turned me off before this, and thankfully I can still say that. April is an amazing performer who always seems to bring great enthusiasm and sexuality to her scenes. This oneís no different, and has some great energy even though some of the chemistryís lacking. Although I normally want a lot of chemistry in my scenes, when somebodyís doing it for money, I can easily look past it as being part of the scene.
Finally, Sky stars in Mud Sundae with Jason McCain. She starts out watering her garden and then gets her feet good and muddy for Jason to lick off. Yes, he does lick and suck her feet completely clean as she sits there for him. Itís a fairly disgusting setup that had me turned off with the exception of Skyís amazement and amusement at Jason cleaning her feet off. I really hope she washed his mouth out with soap before letting him dive into her pussy and ass, which he does with some nice enthusiasm. She returns the favor by letting him fuck her feet as a warmup for her pussy as well as sucking his cock. She finally lays back to let Jason fuck her bald beaver missionary style, and frequently has a smile on her face as he fucks her. Jason also fucks Sky from behind before cumming on her feet. Jason also gives the scene a nasty finish by licking up his joy juice after spraying it onto Skyís feet. Although the start and finish might turn quite a few people off, including myself, the sex part is very hot. Thereís some great chemistry and great energy that more than make up for the bookends.
Head Over Heels 3 is a pretty decent gonzo feature with plenty of ups and downs. On the down side, it suffers from many of the common beginner gonzo problems, such as the camera not really feeling like it knows where it should be. I understand that some people like this feeling, but personally I like to feel like the cameraman knows what heís doing. I had to look away to not get motion sickness a couple times. Although porn is often meant to bring forward bodily fluids, I never thought bile was one of those fluids. On the up side, Alex does a good job of working a foot fetish into the scene without focusing on it so much that non-foot freaks will be turned off. He also keeps a nice variety to the scenes with most of the girls looking like theyíre really enjoying their scenes. Not surprisingly, April turns out a great scene, as does Claudia Adkins and Sky (despite the iffy intro). Alex does a pretty good job with Head Over Heels 3, but a little more polish would have made it quite a bit better.
Extras: The photo gallery lasts two minutes with six seconds per nice looking framed photo. Bios are included for Claudia Adkins, Nadia Foster, Misty, April (Flowers), and Sky (Lopez), and include a photo, a little personal information, and a list of the starís other OGV features. Trailers are included, and done by the series rather than the individual feature. You can check out series such as Pick Up Lines, Shaneís World, Peeping Tom, and what Rodney Moore has to offer. Finally, thereís twenty five minutes of behind the scenes footage thatís nicely arranged by the star. It shows quite a bit of the star before and after the scene as well as Alex working with them on what he wants in the scenes. Sky gets the most the screen time, and gives quite a bit of info on Jason McCain as well as having a bunch of other fun. You also get to see her pee and Jason lick her clean afterwards. Itís a nice behind the scenes featurette that does a good job of adding to the feature without seeming like itís showing you the same things youíve seen before.
Themes: Straight, feet, foot jobs, toe-ing, spanking, anal, group, DP, and prostitution
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Currently, Head Over Heels 3 can be found online for between $19 and $25 with most stores being at either the top or bottom. Iíd suggest renting this one first, as its style wonít be for everybody. Thereís a few scenes that are well above average, with the main thing holding it back being the camera work. The extras are pretty average, but does have a pretty decent behind the scenes featurette.
Note to OGV / Alex Sanders: This is a decent start, and with what youíve shown here a bit more time behind the camera should work out many of the rough edges. The behind the scenes featurette was a great extra that really helped out the overall DVD.
