|Where to buy:||DVD Rent|
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
Initial Expectations: It's a Shot at Home release. I can't help but have high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It may not be the most graphic homemade movie out there, but the chemistry is enough that I'm going to need to see much more of this series.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who values chemistry more than graphic sex shots
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who doesn't want to get hooked on another homemade porn series or who wants some gynocam shots
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty average for a homemade movie. The audio is clear and nicely balanced, but there are a few minor background noises throughout the movie and some of them help with the moods. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks okay. The lighting might be a little low and there's noticeable grain throughout the movie. Most of the action is captured by a steady tripod, but there is a little motion during a few handheld moments.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally donít bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that stays in the lower right corner for the first scene and the upper right corner for the second scene. 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 stills.
The FeatureJulie's a very cute MILF in her early twenties with a two toned blonde and brunette hair, a couple tattoos, a pierced nose and navel, and a body that shows a few minor signs of motherhood along with plenty of care. Her man Kris is a fairly average looking guy with short brown hair. They have a video camera and love to play, so thankfully they contacted Shot at Home.
|Scene 1 - Julie and Kris|
Kris starts out lying back on the bed as Julie comes in and climbs on top for a little sixty-nining. He lets her know that he's going to cum, and she happily takes it in the mouth and swallows it down. They don't let it end there, as Julie moves around to ride him reverse cowgirl style, and lays back as he fucks her so he can hit her just right and quickly give her an orgasm. Julie hands Kris a vibe to hold on her clit as he continues to fuck her, and after a bit gets off so he can admire her pussy with the camera. They decide to do her ass as well, so she breaks out the towel and lube bottle as well as moving around one of the pillows to make herself more comfortable. He fucks her pussy missionary style before having Julie lube up her ass and warm it up with her fingers as they talk about it. Kris has to find Julie's string of anal beads so she can continue to warm herself up, and Julie takes a quick break to wash the lube off her hands before she lies back on the bed. Kris slowly fucks her ass, which you can't see due to the camera angle, and finally cums in her ass. Julie's a little excited about it and wonders if he can see it, so he grabs the camera to take a look as she pushes a little of it back out.
This is a very likable scene. Yes, much of it is shot from a tripod and that does limit some of the angles, but Kris does a nice job mixing things up by picking up the camera to capture Julie when he isn't working on her. At the same time, the reality that really takes some of Shot at Home's titles over the top is on full display. I love the banter between Julie and Kris as they go at it, which brought out plenty of chemistry between them, and it's nice to see a couple take the anal slow rather than seeing how fast the chick can go balls deep without any warmup. Julie's reaction to Kris cumming in her ass was great, and there was plenty about the scene to keep a smile on my face. This is a nice opening scene.
|Scene 2 - Julie and Kris|
As Julie lies back on a bed, Kris comes in with an ice cube he rubs around her a little. He checks her out a bit with the camera as they chat before coming in to fuck her doggie style. They move around so the camera can capture them both fucking from the side and looking at the camera. It looks like he's going to cum, but instead he rolls her over and fucks her missionary style with a quick break to readjust the camera at the start. Finally, Kris pops in Julie's pussy once again but this time we don't see any of the cum.
This is a pretty hot scene. The chemistry continues nicely through this scene and I'm glad that Julie and Kris mix things up a little with the positions. The cream pie repeat was also nice, but I'll admit to being a little disappointed that we didn't get to see anything this time. This is a pretty good scene, but the limited angles held it back a for me a little more this time.
|Scene 3 - Julie and Kris|
Julie starts out the third scene lying on a bed wearing only a pair of panties with her head hanging off the edge. Kris moves in to start fucking her face and plays with her tits a bit as he fucks her mouth. Julie takes it nice and deep a few times, and looks like she might have the gag reflex kick in a couple times. After he fucks her face a while, Julie rolls over onto her stomach and lets him cum in her mouth. She collects it all and then spits it back out into a glass, no doubt saving it for later or to make little cum-pops in the freezer.
I'm not a big fan of oral scenes or really submissive women, but there's something about this scene that really works for me. Maybe it's that we have plenty of chemistry between Julie and Kris in the previous scenes so that you know how much they love pleasing each other or trying new things. I don't know, but I do know that I got into this scene much better than I ever would have expected.
|Scene 4 - Julie and Kris|
Julie and Kris journey to the woods on a little traveled path to get it on next. She helps him out of his shorts and drops down to start sucking him before they stop to set up the tripod. Julie lays back on the blanket and pulls her shorts to the side with Kris pulling his shorts and underwear down just enough to get out and inside her. After a little readjusting they go at it and Julie appears to have a nice orgasm. Kris doesn't appear to be too far after her with the way he's moaning, but you never really see if he cums or not.
This is a fun scene. I love seeing Julie in her street clothes here rather than just being naked, and I love the public sex aspect of it since it sounds like they're right next to a construction site. It's also a short enough scene to really help with the public sex aspect, which really made up for the scene hardly being graphic at all. This is a short but sweet scene.
|Scene 5 - Julie and Kris|
Julie starts out the final scene in just a white tee shirt and socks letting Kris know she wants it doggie style. He has her get up on the bed and goes right to giving it to her. Julie comments on how wet she is as he fucks her and has him cum inside her. Afterwards they show off a bit of the damage.
This is a very nice scene to close the movie with. It's short and sweet, just like the last one, but also has a bit of that ďwe better get it while we canĒ feeling that every couple who's been together a while has felt at one time or another. Beyond that, you get plenty of the same great chemistry you've come to expect from this couple, which was enough to make me know that I was going to need to see much more of Julie and Kris long before the movie got to this point. This is a very nice final scene.
Julie and Kris 2 is a very nice release. Julie is darn hot, and has a sultry feeling about her that drew me in just as much as her looks did. Kris also doesn't seem bad, but the camera never captures too much of him since they have it focused on Julie instead. Like so many other homemade movies, it's the chemistry that makes this one, and Julie and Kris deliver it very well. There's some great banter between them throughout the movie, and more than anything you get a feeling like they just want to have fun and please each other through the sex. Most of the time homemade movies only last two or three scenes, but here it nicely includes five scenes of varying length. The short scenes are just as satisfying as the long ones, and I love how they mix up oral, cream pies, and even a little public feeling sex. Yes, the action is normally shot from a tripod, but they normally keep it well adjusted so that it captures the action and they care enough to move around so that it doesn't drag badly. There are times where the limited camera angles did get to me, but Julie and Kris do a good enough job that each time a new scene started my hopes were refreshed and I was right back into the movie. Julie and Kris 2 is a nicely done homemade movie with an addictive feeling to it that let me know that I was going to have to check out much more of them in the future.
The Extra StuffAs usual with Shot at Home, there's about a half hour of clips from other Shot at Home releases.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, homemade, swallowing, toys, anal, cream pies (anal and vaginal), and oral
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Shot at Home's DVDs can be found on their website for around $20. This one's worth checking out. No, the action isn't the most graphic, but there's a great sense of fun and chemistry along with a nice variety of sex. The technical aspects are pretty average for an amateur release, and as usual with Shot at Home you get a little effort put into the extras. This is a nice DVD that has me looking forward to more of the series.
Note to Shot at Home: It's easy to see why this is becoming one of your longer running current series. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of it.
