The Little Details
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 Ďglamor 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: I always look forward to new Shot at Home couples and this one is no different!
Initial Reaction: Although the technical aspects show some of the shortcomings of homemade porn, Kelly and Dan also show plenty of potential for future releases.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a heavy dose of reality with their porn.
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting high quality technical aspects
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty average for homemade porn to a little below average, which is well below the level people expect with mainstream porn. The audio is fairly well balanced for homemade porn, but there are quite a few background noises and balance problems during the outdoor sequences. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks decent for a homemade movie. There's quite a bit of motion in some places, but the lighting is well done and the grain never gets excessive. The first scene shows most of the weaknesses, including seeming a little off for the aspect ratio, but the rest of the movie is pretty well done for homemade porn.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally donít bother me much, there is a small and tasteful watermark warning that stays in the lower right corner. 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 clips from the movie.
The FeatureKelly is a trim forty one year old dirty blonde MILF with tasteful implants. Her man Dan has a mustache and goatee and loves her exhibitionist side. He also has a camera, so now we get to see some of the fun they have together.
|Scene 1 Ė Kelly and Dan|
Kelly starts out in a hot pink bikini running into the ocean as the waves run in as Dan talks about how she's hot and peeing in the ocean. She sprays a little sunblock around her augmented tits and talks about how they can go on the other side of the hill to fuck in the woods, and then starts sucking Dan's cock on the beach as soon as he pulls it out. Their time is cut short after a few moments, so they play around the beach a little more before Kelly comes back to their towel and starts masturbating. After working herself to a nice orgasm she demands that Dan fucks her, and readily agrees to him fucking her ass. They check out the couple down the beach before she plays with her ass. The camera goes off before they fuck, and the scene cuts to her going for a dip in some cold water at another location and in another bikini.
This is a nice opening scene. You get a good flavor for Kelly and Dan, and there's no denying that she has one heck of a body for a forty one year old woman. There's also no denying that this is a homemade movie, as there's quite a bit of background noise and camera shake. It is a bit heavy at the start of the scene and was a little hard to watch for me, and something seemed a little off in the aspect ratio as well. That said, things like this aren't all that uncommon with homemade movies and this one still ended up being a touch above average.
|Scene 2 Ė Kelly|
Kelly starts the second scene getting in the shower. She washes her hair before shaving her pussy, and then lays back against the wall to rub her pussy. Kelly plays with her pussy from the front as well as the back, and shows off her ass nicely as well. She turns back and forth a few times as she puts on her show, and finally waves goodbye before pulling the curtain closed.
This is a very nice homemade masturbation scene. There's no doubt that the camera is on a tripod for the scene, but it's well adjusted to capture the action well. Kelly feels very natural through the scene, and the shaving was very nice to spice things up. This is a good little scene.
|Scene 3 Ė Kelly and Dan|
Kelly puts on a little show with some of her panties for Dan as she picks up and gets ready to do laundry before the scene cuts to her in a sexy red bra and panties moving in to help him from his pants to her mouth. She gives him some good sucking and stroking before moving up to ride him cowgirl style, and after the adjust the camera a little Dan fucks Kelly doggie style. After he fucks her from behind a bit Dan pulls out the lube and lubes up her asshole before fucking it good as Kelly bucks back against him. They move on to fuck missionary style with Kelly mixing in a little oral action for Dan before he fucks her missionary style a little more and then pops on her tits. Afterwards Kelly sucks him a little more as they both gasp for air looking completely worn out and satisfied.
This is another nicely done scene. It's once again an obviously homemade movie, and with Kelly giving up the ass that seems to make it just a touch nastier. The camera work is pretty well done for a homemade scene, and Kelly kicks things up nicely with a couple great orgasms. This is a very nice scene to close the movie.
Kelly and Dan 1 is a very nice homemade porn debut video. Kelly has a great body for being over forty, and there's an obvious love of sex between her and Dan. There's a very nice mix of action here, and the only real complaint I can see homemade porn fans having here is that you never get a really good angle for the anal sex. The camera work can be a touch weak, but that's not unusual for new homemade porn releases. As much as the action is important in any porn release, new homemade porn releases like this always seem to be as much about the potential the couple has as the action. Kelly and Dan show a ton of potential and I can't help but hope that they continue to share the fun they have with their video camera. Kelly and Dan 1 is a pretty good homemade porn release that shows lots of promise for the future.
The Extra StuffAs usual with Shot at Home, there's a preview reel lasting about a half hour.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, amateur, public sex, oral, masturbation, tease, and anal
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Shot at Home's DVDs can be found on their website for around $20. If you're a fan of homemade porn this one's probably going to be worth the money. A with most homemade porn debut videos there's a little to be desired in places, but Kelly and Dan also show a lot of potential for the future. The camera work is a bit weak even by homemade porn standards, but as usual with Shot at Home there's a little effort put into the extras with a half hour preview reel. This is an above average homemade porn release.
Note to Shot at Home: Thank you for putting such consistent care into your products and for continue to find such great new couples.
