The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Marty Zion and Nectar have normally impressed me. Iím looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: It feels like an exercise in redundancy and is easily the biggest disappointment Iíve had from Marty Zion.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting highly artistic sex with a major focus on beauty
Who Should Avoid It: Porn where the scenes feel different from each other
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty good. The audio is clear, but itís very much dominated by the music. You donít get to hear a lot of the performers, but you also donít have to worry about hearing background noises. The video is very nicely done as well. Itís clear and nicely lit with only a hint of grain.
Music: As usual with Nectar, the music has a sexy dance feel which works amazingly well. Itís normally loud, but it does help out the scenes.
Borderline False Advertising: The cover states an approximate running time of 110 min, which is twelve minutes longer than the feature. I know some companies use a total running length for the DVD which includes extras, but so far Nectar hasnít been one of these. Since this is enough time for another short scene, Iím deducting a half point from the overall score.
Menus: The main menu is fairly simple. It works as much as a chapter menu as a main menu by letting you jump directly to each scene based on a small clip and a title for the scene. Itís a different look, and gives a decent first impression.
The FeatureMarty Zion normally uses a theme to connect his movies rather than any kind of a plot. Here that theme is water and angels. Every scene has water around it somehow and the girls wearing angelís wings, and it never bothers with any kind of plot to get things started.
|Scene 1 - Taylor Rain and Dick Smothers, Jr.|
Taylor starts things out as an obviously fallen angel with black lingerie and pink wings. She diddles herself sitting on the edge of a bathtub with water all around her, first with her fingers and then with a black dildo. She goes from her pussy to her ass before Dick wades up to the tub and gets in. He quickly works his way down to Taylorís twat and gives it a bit of tongue and finger action before letting her return the favor with some nice throat action. Dick moves on to fuck Taylor from behind firs tin her pussy and then her ass. They also get in a bit of reverse cowgirl anal before Taylor finishes things up with a nice smiling facial.
This is a pretty good scene. The tease at the start goes on a bit long, but Taylor and Dick have nice chemistry once they get into it. Thereís also some nice energy, but the scene did suffer a little by not really having much audio from between Dick and Taylor. This is a good scene, but not quite great.
|Scene 2 - Bella Starr and Sarah Blake|
Bella starts things off on a swing in some cute black and pink lingerie with pink wings. She plays to the camera and diddles herself before Sarah shows up and they kiss. Bella quickly works her way down to eat Sarah and play with her pussy before letting Sarah return the favor with the help of a dildo. Sarah also bends Bella over and fucks her with a strap-on as well as letting Bella ride it reverse cowgirl style. Finally, the girls finish things with a kiss and a quick flashback.
This is an okay scene at best. The girls are both gorgeous, but something seemed to be missing here. Thereís okay energy, but I think the scene was just so soft and slow that it never really did much for me.
|Scene 3 - Charmane and Magnum Force|
Charmane, dressed nicely in a black bikini and white wings, visits Magnum in bed. She dances around before stripping down, and after a bit more dancing around pulls the covers off Magnum to get at him. They kiss before Charmane moves up to get her pussy and ass eaten. She slides around for a bit of sixty-nining and then turns around for a little doggie style dicking. They also go at it missionary style before Magnum decorates Charmaneís stomach with a nice dose of dick droppings.
This scene leaves me with mixed feelings. Charmane is fun to watch and puts out a nice performance, but the long solo start to the scene started with was so similar to the other openings that I started to lose interest very quickly. Itís too bad because the second half of the scene really was well done. It definitely picked back up when Charmane seemed to remember that she had a man with her. It has nice chemistry and energy, as well as a nice flow that makes the second half a winner but not so much that it could overcome the first half.
|Scene 4 - Charlie Lane and Kelly Kline|
Of course, Charlie starts out the penultimate scene in a little lingerie including black wings diddling herself. After plenty of finger licking good fun, a boat carrying Kelly drifts up to the rock Charlieís on. They kiss and strip down before Kelly sets her tongue to working on Charlieís twat. Charlie lays back and takes it, as well as a dildo, before having Kelly climb onto her face so she can return the favor. Charlie also gives Kelly and her bald beaver a taste of her toy before they bring things to a close with a kiss.
This is an okay scene. Charlie and Kelly are both gorgeous and put on a nice show. They seem to be into each other and keep things moving nicely. Unfortunately the scene was so similar to the others that I couldnít get into it until it was almost over.
|Scene 5 - Shy Love and Talon|
After she works herself over with her fingers and a toy, Shy is joined by Talon, who goes right to work tonguing her twat. She reciprocates with a bit of head before letting Talon go straight to fucking her ass from behind. Shy climbs up onto Talon so her pussy can get a little attention cowgirl style as well as riding it in reverse cowgirl. Not wanting her ass to feel left out, Shy lays back so Talon can spear it again before he decorates her stomach.
This is a pretty good scene once you get into it. Shy takes the anal with ease, and really looks to get into it well. She puts out plenty of energy and looks to have nice chemistry with Talon too. This is a very nice scene to finish things with, and my only complaint is that itís so similar to every other scene here.
Liquid is a movie I really wanted to like, but just couldnít get into. It definitely has beautiful girls, a sexy feel, and a beautiful and artistic eye behind the camera. It even has some sexy music to help out each of the scenes. The problem for me was that every scene felt the same due to the long and drawn out solo section at the start of each scene. I love solo scenes, but here the scenes normally lasted about twenty minutes and ten of that was one of the girls solo with the same feel and style for each scene. It made the scenes feel repetitive and quickly lost me. I watched this movie over two nights (the first three one night and the last two the following night) as I was getting very tired the first night and didnít want that to affect my judgement of the movie. When I started the fourth scene on the second day, I felt like I was being dragged back into a rut that I had fought my way out of. Itís too bad since the scenes taken by themselves are very nice. Theyíre beautiful and thereís some nice heat. Unfortunately, the scenes in Liquid are so similar to each other that I felt like I was watching the same scene over and over again.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Illumination, Metropolis, and Mystified. The photo gallery lasts almost five minutes with roughly ten seconds per very nice looking snapshot. Thereís also weblinks and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts about twelve minutes. It blends the scenes being shot, the stars being made up for the scenes and interviewed, and a little screwing around behind the scenes. Thereís even a little on how the girls prep for their scenes. Itís a nice featurette except for one thing, the guy behind the camera is annoying as hell. Halfway through the featurette I had no doubt about whether or not he rode the short bus to work, and he held back the entire featurette because of it.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, masturbation, toys, anal, lesbian, interracial, and rimming (male > female)
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many Nectar DVDs can be found online for between about $20 and $32 with several stores offering them near the low end. Skip this one and go with one of Marty Zionís other Nectar releases. The sex is good but the scenes are extremely alike. The technical aspects are very well done and thereís also some good effort put into the extras.
Note to Nectar Entertainment: Although I wasnít overly impressed with the movie here, itís nice to see you continuing to put such nice effort into your overall DVDs. Keep up the great work!
