The Little Details
NOTE: This is an amateur video. Amateur and homemade movies don’t have the budget nor the resources of studio porn, and therefore rarely get close to the same quality technically. I’m 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 aren’t normally the ‘glamour stars’ 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 it’s often shot from a tripod or with somebody who doesn’t 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 they’re 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 isn’t much for extras in amateur features, I’ve weighted my overall rating more heavily towards the sex than I do in most studio porn.

The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Black guy white girl sex normally isn't my thing, but with how impressed I normally am with what Shot at Home puts out I can't help but be very curious about this one.
Initial Reaction: Not only is it a great release, it's one of the best releases I think I've seen from Shot at Home.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of homemade porn and interracial sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier anal action and lots of it
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are well done for a homemade porn release. The audio has a few minor background noises and balance problems, but they're all very minor and never interfere with the movie. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks very nice. There's a few shadows that pop up occasionally as well as a little camera motion, but for a homemade movie it all looks very good.
Watermark Warning: Although the normally don’t 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 didn’t notice it unless I thought about it.
Menus: The menus are pretty simple. The main menu keeps Shot at Home’s 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 FeatureLaci is a little blonde white girl, while her man Tariq is a big and buff black dude. Here they decide to take a little vacation, and bring their video camera along for the hotel room fun. Tariq also gets to give Laci her first on-camera assfucking.
|Scene 1 – Laci and Tariq|
Laci starts out on all fours kissing Tariq's leg while wearing a little pink shirt, and talks to him as she moves up to suck his cock and balls. She mixes in some nice eyes and after a bit gets up to remove her top before kneeling down to suck Tariq in front of her. Laci gives him plenty of encouragement to cum, and finally strokes him onto her face with a nice pop that actually has a touch of velocity to it rather than the dribble I normally associate with black studs. Afterwards they share a few words as well as an “I love you”.
Although I'm not a big fan of the black guy / white girl interracial porn, Laci and Tariq quickly drew me into this scene. Laci shows a great love of sucking cock, and even with the scene being shot POV style there's no denying the chemistry between them. Tariq was also nicely impressive with a good pop that Laci took very well. This is a very nice start to the movie, and worked well for me despite me not being a big fan of either blowjob scenes or black guy white chick porn.
|Scene 2 – Laci and Tariq|
Tariq chats with Laci as she gets ready for bed in the bathroom, and can't help but check her out. Laci shows off her very nice butt which Tariq can't help but grab and lightly spank before she turns around to pull down his shorts and start gobbling his knob. She turns back around to bend over the sink and let him fuck her from behind, and takes a little break to strip all the way down and let him admire her pussy a little. She lets him fuck her from behind on the toilet and plays with her pussy as she sits on the edge of the sink counter before he fucks her with them facing each other. Finally, Tariq pulls out and pops a nice little load around her pussy before Laci hops in the shower to clean up.
This is another very nice scene. There's great chemistry between them, and although you can definitely tell how tight the bathroom is for space Tariq handles the camera very well to capture it. They keep things moving nicely and take their time without ever seeming like they're drawing things out. This is another hot and enjoyable scene.
|Scene 3 – Laci|
Tariq checks on Laci wondering what she's doing only to have her jump out saying she's getting ready to go down to the hot tub and them showing off her hot little camo bikini. He wants to relax rather than going down, and begs her to give him a little show instead. Laci agrees and kicks back in a chair before teasing him a little with her pussy and great tits. She breaks out her nice big tits and gives each of them a little lick before settling back in the chair to play with her pussy lightly. Tariq gives her a vibe that she works around her pussy before slowly fucking herself with it. She decides she needs a little more, so she quickly heads off to grab a bigger vibe that she puts to work on herself. Finally, Laci has a nice little orgasm complete with a great smile.
This is another very enjoyable scene. Laci has a great body, and it looks every bit as good in her little bikini as it does out of it. She puts on a very nice show for Tariq complete with what looks like a real orgasm, and it moves along at a very nice pace with plenty of very natural smiles. This is another scene that worked very well for me.
|Scene 4 – Laci and Tariq|
The camera goes on a tripod as Tariq starts out the penultimate scene penetrating Laci's posterior doggie style. She grabs her vibe and gives herself a quick technical DP before they move around so he can fuck her ass as she lays on her side on the bed. Finally, Tariq pops on her ass as she gives him some great smiles and little laughs, and then bends over to give her a kiss.
This is a very nice anal scene. Laci and Tariq don't waste any time getting to it, and he fucks her slow but not at a lethargic pace to start it out. Laci takes it extremely well and you can tell right as they change positions that she's really enjoying herself. They have a nice idea of where they should be and what the camera can do for their positions, and make this a very nicely captured tripod scene. Not surprisingly, this is another extremely enjoyable scene.
|Scene 5 – Laci|
Tariq checks on Laci in the shower to see what's taking to long onto to find that she's cumming with the help of a jackrabbit vibrator stuck on the shower wall. Tariq has her squat down to ride the toy as well as backing up against it, so she rides it on the edge of the shower as well as on the seat and floor. She just can't make it work like she wants due to how wet and slippery she is, so she sits in the corner of the shower to fuck herself a bit as well as leaning against the wall to fuck herself. Finally, Laci pulls the shower curtain close and Tariq takes a quick hint.
This is a very nice final scene. Yes, it's another masturbation scene, but with Laci's body, Tariq's encouragement, and Laci's enthusiasm and love of her toys there's nothing to complain of here. It isn't often you get a feeling of chemistry in a solo scene, but it comes across very well here and help to make this a winner of a final scene. This is another great addition to the movie.
Releases like Laci and Tariq 3 remind me of why I fell in love with Shot at Home's homemade porn so quickly. Black guy white girl porn often bores me, as it so often seems to be more about size or taboo than it is about chemistry, but here the chemistry takes the lead out of those three factors. You can tell that Laci and Tariq are in love and love playing in front of the camera, and it doesn't hurt that they're both darn good looking. Okay, you never get to see too much of Tariq, but what you can see shows him being very well built and there's nothing to make one think that he isn't a good looking guy as well. Then there's Laci, who has a natural beauty that's off the charts going from a pretty face with a killer eye and smile to a fantastic rack right down to a booty. I love how natural most of the girls Shot at Home has brought out look and feel, and if Laci isn't the most beautiful of the bunch she's easily within the top two or three. There's a very nice mix of action throughout the release letting you watch as Laci puts on a couple of solo shows, gives Tariq a blowjob, and takes it in each of her holes, and it's all very well captured. If there's anything close to a complaint about the release it's that the anal is limited to the one scene and never pops up in either of the solo scenes, but that's a very, very small complaint. Laci and Tariq 3 is a fantastic homemade fuck film that makes me want to check out their earlier releases as well as having high hopes for more releases from them.
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, interracial, oral tease, masturbation, toys, anal, and DP (technical)
Raincoat Factor: Very 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 is one of the best Shot at Home releases I've seen in a long time, and that says a lot with how much I like their movies. Every scene here is very hot and there's plenty of chemistry in each scene even if it's a solo scene. The technical aspects are well done for a homemade movie, and since this is a Shot at Home release you also get a half hour preview reel in the extras. This is a great release that really deserves to be checked out.
Note to Shot at Home: I hope you talk nice to Laci and Tariq so they keep sending you new movies!
