NOTE: There seems to be more than a little confusion as to the title of this DVD. The title on the cover reads:
I fully took this to mean the movie was called Young True Amateurs 2 when looking at the cover, but the movie is actually called Eye Contact 2 and is labeled as such on the DVD and listed as such on RAME. This seems to be more than a little confusing, especially if a person wants to recommend this movie to somebody else. Hopefully Homegrown puts a little more thought into their covers and how they word things in the future to end this confusion. Iím listing this review under Young True Amateurs 2 as thatís the way most stores appear to have it listed, although in the review Iím going to refer to it as Eye Contact 2 as thatís actually the name of the movie.
Running Time: 84 min.
Production Date: 2000
Director: None listed
Cast: Sunny Daze, Belinda Blue, Sandy McNeil, Daphne, Maxine, Diamond, and an unnamed guy
Initial Expectations: Iíve heard good things about Homegrownís product, so Iím going in with fairly high expectations.
Initial Reaction: Although the DVD is more than a little crude, thereís no denying that the girls here love what theyíre doing!
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting fresh faces having a great time
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting high technical qualities or most of what the cover claims
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is a bit on the low side and has a few problems. Itís a little on the soft side, which although a little annoying, isnít so quiet that you canít solve it by turning up the volume a bit. More importantly, thereís a few background noises and the audio seemed like it was maxed out when recorded, as itís frequently scratchy and very noticeable. The video also leaves a bit to be desired. The lighting is a bit inconsistent and thereís noticeable pixelation throughout the feature. Thereís also a few camera shakes and minor soft focus problems, as well as a bar along the bottom edge of the screen that seems off.
Disc Problems / Complaints: Thereís no time stamp, which always makes a DVD feel cheap to me. From what I understand it takes almost no effort to include a time stamp, and I donít think Iím alone in liking to jump to specific points in movies. The movie is also split over multiple titles, so once you move past the third scene, you canít go back without going through the main menu or chapter menu. This also seems very juvenile for DVD authoring, and left me more than a little wanting for overall DVD quality.
False Advertising: The cover states multiple angles, VR technology, and live action and bios of the cast are included. I didnít find a single one of these, with the closest the DVD comes to any of these being short interviews with the cast as part of the scenes. Needless to say, this left me feeling a little ripped off, and Iím deducting a full point from the overall rating because of it.
Menus: The main menu is very simple and brings back nightmares of Cabellero right down to having a different name on it than is on the DVD itself. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The Feature: Eye Contact 2 works with a simple premise. Itís an amateur video that focuses on oral sex. Each scene starts with a short interview, and normally features the girls in various stages of disarray fucking and sucking.
Sunny Daze, a decent looking young blonde with a dazed look in her eye, starts out talking with the cameraman while her partner works his mouth across her body. She also plays with his cock a little before letting him play with her pussy while she sucks the other guy. She goes back to sucking the cameraman while getting eaten, and finishes things up with one facial. Itís an okay scene, but it seemed a little uncertain of whether it wanted to be a behind the scenes type scene, a gonzo scene, or a standard scene. It also seemed unfinished since there were two guys working on Sunny, but only one pop. This is easily the weakest scene in the entire feature.
Belinda Blue, a decent looking brunette, starts out talking with the cameraman about porn and sex before playing with herself very gently. She gropes the cameraman before letting him play with her pussy, and then strokes him with her panties while licking his balls. Finally she sucks and strokes him until he pops on her neck. Itís a slightly above average scene, with all the credit going to how much Belinda looks like sheís enjoying herself. Thereís frequently laughter in her eyes and a smile on her face, which always raises a scene up a notch or two for me.
Sandy McNeil, a slightly older looking dirty blonde, talks a bit about her sexuality before completely going to town on the cameramanís cock. She plays with herself on the cameramanís command and lets him eat her pussy before having him pop in her mouth. This is an extremely hot scene, and I really hope I run across Sandy again something! She has a definitely love of sex, and really puts her all into it.
Daphne, a nice looking brunette, plays with herself around her clothes for the fourth scene. She works on herself with a vibe while sucking the camera guy, and also lets him fuck her. Finally, she titty-fucks and sucks him until he comes on her tongue. Itís a hot scene that once again shows a great love for sex.
Maxine, an exotic brunette with big tits, glasses, and a piercing under her lower lip and on her right nipple, lets the cameramanís cock part both sets of her lips. They fuck both missionary and doggie style, and Maxine even plays with her ass a little while they fuck. Finally, she sucks him until he pops on her big fat titties. Once again, the girl looks like sheís having a great time, but the camera work really held this one back at times. I really didnít need to see Maxineís back for long periods of time, and the final shot was from so far away that you can barely see the pop.
Diamond, an okay looking brunette with extremely hairy arms, starts out the final scene complaining about the cameramanís cock being larger than sheís used to before wrapping her mouth around it. Diamond lets him fuck her from behind before taking his love juice on her tits and taking a little taste taste. Thereís nothing new here, which is a good thing. Diamond isnít the best looking girl around, but she has a great smile and laugh, and obviously enjoys sex. Itís a great scene to end things with, and definitely leaves a good taste in my mouth for the feel of the series.
Eye Contact 2 leaves me with mixed emotions. I really love the feature, despite the weak camera work. The girls are realistic, and every one of them obviously loves fucking and sucking. Thereís more chemistry and enjoyment in some of these scenes by themselves than many entire movies can build up. On the other hand, the technical aspects frequently get in the way of things and the cover is full of false claims. I know both can improve, but I hate to support a company who makes as wild of false claims as Homegrown does here, since if everybody continues to patronize them they have no real reason to change. Since this is my first Homegrown DVD, Iím hoping that the false advertising part was a fluke here, since with a little more care this is a studio I can see recommending heavily. The other main problem is some of the camera work. Itís obvious that thereís more than just the guy fucking the girls involved here, as you hear a still camera going at times and there are a couple alternate angles in the feature. Ninety five percent of the action, however, is from the guyís point of view, which really limits portions of some of the scenes. I mean, when the girlís getting fucked from behind, itíd be nice to see her reaction to it rather than focusing on her back and the back of her head. Eye Contact 2 might be a flawed feature and DVD, but thereís no denying that it contains great sex!
Extras: A trailer is included for Natural Bush 3. Thereís also website information and a photo gallery that lasts about a minute and a half with five seconds per okay at best photo.
Themes: Straight, amateur, group, oral, masturbation, toys, and tit-fucking
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: 100% of the fucking, none of the oral
Overall: Currently, most Homegrown Video DVDs can be found online for between $15 and $25. Iím really torn on recommending this DVD. I love the feature, but the DVD itself is really done poorly and the cover is filled with false advertising. Although I would hate to see this series end, I also hate to encourage them when they put out DVDs like this. If nothing else, give this one a rental, if you can find it.
Note to Homegrown Video: A little honesty in advertising can go a long way. As a smaller studio, people can sometimes understand when you donít include a lot of extras. Lying on your cover about what your DVD contains, however, they wonít understand.
