The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Metro's Urban line has been far less than impressive. I’m not expecting too much here.
Initial Reaction: It once again makes me wonder how Metro's Urban line lasted so long.
Who Should Watch It : Extreme fans of the cast and insomniacs
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting porn where it feels like the people making it knew what they were doing
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are okay. The audio is pretty well balanced between the performers and there's very few background noises. At the same time, it's very hard to hear the performers many times because the annoying music is way too loud. The video is presented in the full screen format. It's nicely lit but has a touch of grain. There's also a lot of very noticeable camera motion with fast zooming and pans.
Music: The music holds back the entire movie. It's extremely repetitive and extremely loud, and makes it so that you can barely hear the performers when they try talking to each other to set up the scene.
Menus: The main menu is very generic, offering only the title, selections, a little background animation, and a still from the boxcover. The chapter menu is also extremely generic and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a chapter number.
The FeatureMixed Emotions keeps things pretty simple. There's a couple times it seems like there's supposed to be a little something to set the scenes up, but most of the time it just falls aside to get to the sex.
|Scene 1 – Queen Black Cat and Domineko|
After a little time listening in the studio, Domineko heads out to meet hot black babe Queen Black Cat. He chats it up before getting her to drop down and start sucking his cock. Queen Black Cat strips down a bit as she sucks him and even mixes in a little eye contact and stroking before things cut to her lowering her twat over Domineko's cock reverse cowgirl style. She also lets him fuck her missionary style and from behind before taking a nice facial finish.
This is a pretty average scene. Queen Black Cat is hot, and somehow has a bit of chemistry with Domineko even though he doesn't bring much to the scene. It drags along a bit to get through the scene, and is hurt by the editing, which is very choppy, and the camera work, which seems to zoom at random and like it wants to cut Domineko out of the scene. Cutting the guy out of the scene can work occasionally for me, but you need a girl who's a lot stronger performer than Queen Black Cat along with better editing and camera work. This scene didn't impress me much at all.
|Scene 2 – Daejha Milan and Devlin Weed|
Weed starts out the second scene sitting back on a couch with homely looking redheaded white girl Daejha, who looks a bit overweight (especially for her outfit) as well as a bit stoned. They show off a rubber duckie vibe before Weed puts it to use on Daejha. She pays him back with some nice head before laying back so Weed can work on her again, this time with his tongue and fingers. He moves up to fuck Daejha missionary style before letting her up to ride him cowgirl style. They also get in a bit of doggie fucking before finishing things with a very impressive facial.
This scene had a couple things going for it, but even more working against it. The scene started out very nicely with the rubber duckie and Weed looking like he really cares about pleasing women. With how many black studs out there only seem to care about how much they can mouth off, this was a great relief. Unfortunately, most everything else about the scene held it back. Daejha was far from attractive, and looked about like she had been pulled out of a back alley fifteen minutes before the shoot. The camera work was weak once again, and neither it nor the editing gave the feeling that anybody behind the camera cared about the action. Weed gave this scene potential, but that's about all I can say was impressive about this scene.
|Scene 3 – Angel Eyes and Ice La Fox|
Hot dark skinned black babe Angel gets it on with lighter skinned Ice on a bed for the third scene. Ice doesn't waste any time moving in to lick Angel's pussy before they kiss. She lets Angel strip off her panties to lick her pussy, and they go back and forth a bit before Ice breaks out a large purple vibe to use on Angel's pussy. They finish things up sixty-nining a bit, and look like they might actually have satisfied each other before the scene cuts through some kissing footage.
If there's one word to describe this scene it's “boring”. That's really a sad thing here as both girls are nicely hot. Unfortunately I rarely had the feeling that they were into each other, and as the scene began the chemistry was so bad I think somebody could have started throwing hundred dollar bills on the bed without getting any reaction. Angel returns the favor, and even works Ice's pussy over both as she lies on her back and gets up on all fours. The music also hurt the scene, and there were times I thought I should be hearing the girls and didn't. This scene made my cock fall asleep.
|Scene 4 – Carmen Hayes and Domineko|
Carmen starts things out in a sexy gold animal print outfit with sexy black strappy shoes chatting with Domineko on a couch before she start slurping on his cock. The scene cuts to her fucking him reverse cowgirl style before they get in some missionary and doggie fucking. FInally, Carmen takes a nice facial finish.
This scene shows just why Domineko and Cleetix Mack shouldn't be allowed near a camera. Carmen Hayes is pretty much a gimme for any scene. With her great body, sultry eyes and smile, and great sexual energy you could pretty much pull somebody off the street and have the potential for a great scene. This scene, however, was barely watchable much of the time. The camera picks really screwed up angles that seemed like they could be extremely improved if somebody stepped a foot one way or the other. The editing was even worse and made me wonder if somebody decided to make a cut every time they blinked or a car drove by. This scene hovers a little below the average level, but with Carmen should have been much better.
|Scene 5 – Mercedez Ashley and D. Wise|
Hottie Carmen starts the final scene out in a hold and reddish dress that looks to match her hair joining D. Wise on the couch as he tries collecting some money. When he gets done, Mercedez shows her appreciation for his hard work by working his cock over with her mouth and tits. He eats her pussy in return before letting her ride him in each of the cowgirls. They finish things up with a little doggie fucking before cutting to D. trying to pop in Mercedez mouth and her pretending he popped in it.
This scene gave me some quick hope and then it went away again. Mercedez is darn hot and put some nice effort into sucking dick. From there, the scene seemed to drop into mediocrity only to fall into a pit at the end with D. Wise not being able to deliver a pop at the end. Mercedez gives a noble effort to save the scene, but it's so obvious that she's trying to hide it that I couldn't help but groan. This is a disappointing end to a disappointing movie.
I'd like to say that Mixed Emotions left me with some, but there's not enough that's impressive about the movie to bring out those feelings. There's a few cute girls here, but I can't say that any of the guys were too appealing. The sex often lacks chemistry, and at times left me completely bored. If that isn't enough, the camera work is comparable to what you'd get from a drunk relative on Christmas Eve with a camera. Surprisingly, the editing is even worse! It's not uncommon for a scene to have segments that don't even last three seconds before cutting to the next segment. Perhaps the best thing about Mixed Emotions is that it lets you know your remote isn't lost between the cushions of the couch because odds are you're going to want it. Mixed Emotions is yet another disappointing Metro Urban release.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Pussy Whipped 2, American Ass, Al Goldstein and Ron Jeremy are Screwed, and Ass Everywhere. The photo gallery lasts nearly three minutes with about six seconds per okay looking snapshot or full screen photo. There's also commercials, bloopers, and weblinks.
The blooper and outtake reel lasts just over a minute and a quarter. You get to see funny faces after bored looks at the camera, a little screwing around between takes, body sounds, and a few fun comments. It's nothing overly special, but there are a few minor chuckles and it does add a bit to the overall DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, interracial, toys, lesbian, and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Metro's Urban line of DVDs can be found online for between about $11 and $25 with a few stores offering them near the low end. Even the low end is too high for this one. The sex is boring and the camera work and editing far below average. The technical aspects are okay and there's a touch of effort put into the extras. Sadly, there seems to be more effort there than in the rest of the movie.
Note to Metro: Please get camera lessons for whoever worked the camera here!
