The Short Story
Initial Expectations: I haven’t seen anything from Jerome Tanner, but Legend has been impressing me with their movies lately. I’m going into this one with fairly decent expectations.
Initial Reaction: It nicely exceeded my expectations with some good humor and hot sex.
Who Should Watch It : Couples wanting a light and fun plot with energetic sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting nastier sex or a lot of plot
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty well done. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I don’t think I heard a single background noise. The only problem it has is that it seems to get a little scratchy when some of the girls get overly vocal and high pitched. The video was shot in HD and is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. It’s nicely lit but has a little bit of grain. I’m sure this will turn some people off, but I thought it gave the movie a slightly more artistic feel.
Music: The music is okay. It isn’t in every scene, which isn’t a bad thing because it strengthens the music when it does appear. It has a pretty typical porno feel, but oddly only comes out one speaker.
Disc Complaints: There’s no time stamp on the DVD, which always leaves me feeling a bit let down. After I watch a movie the first time I often like to jump around in it, and with the time stamp you can go to any point in the movie. Without it you’re limited to chapter breaks, and from what I understand it takes virtually no time or effort to include it. Legend seems to be putting some nice effort into their recent releases, so I hope that this soon becomes a thing of the past.
Menus: The menus are okay. The main menu nicely works together a still from the cover, a little animation, and a bit of sex. The chapter menu also shows some nice care, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number as well as letting you choose what part of the scene you want to go to.
The FeatureAlthough Missy Monroe wants to be a serious reporter, her boss Joel Lawrence knows that people don’t want things like that. They want stories of lustful desires and beautiful people, so he has her report on what happens on porn shoots. When porn superstar Evan Stone is murdered, Joel gives Missy her chance. He’ll give her a shot at the big one, and hopefully she won’t blow it in the wrong way.
|Scene 1 - Missy Monroe and Evan Stone|
After looking at Evan’s large bulbous cock during an interview on the set of Starfish Troopers after being warned not to, cute blonde Missy starts shedding clothes so she can get the interview and keep her job. Evan takes the opportunity to turn it into a fluff piece, so Missy goes right to work sucking and stroking him, including taking his cock into her throat. He works over her pussy with his tongue and fingers in return before fucking her as she sits back in her chair. They move over to a bar so Evan can fuck Missy from behind while she kneels on a pair of barstools before moving to the table where Missy rides him reverse cowgirl style. Finally, Missy takes a nice facial to finish things up with a smile.
This is a pretty hot opening scene. Missy turns out some nice vocals along with some very good energy. She and Evan really look like they’re into each other, and they keep things moving along very nicely. My only complaint here is that with the interview taking place on the set of Starfish Troopers that Evan doesn’t spear Missy’s chocolate starfish. She definitely knows how to turn out a smoking anal scene, and it would have fit into the scene beautifully. This is a hot scene that didn’t seem like it went quite far enough.
|Scene 2 - Trina Michaels and Manuel Ferrara|
Big tittied blonde Trina gets it on with Manuel on a porn set for the next scene. After flubbing one of her lines and having the director stop filming so she knows when to “oooh” and when to “ahhh”, Manuel goes back to work on her pussy with his tongue and fingers. She has him back off so she can suck his cock and wrap her titties around it, and then gives him a little tease around the fireman’s pole before riding his cock in both cowgirls. Trina and Manuel lay back on the table for a bit of spooning before Trina lies back and lets Manuel spray his seed all over her face and open mouth.
This is another pretty hot scene. Trina is a bit overinflated in the chest area for my tastes, but with the scene being set around a porn scene she fits right in. It also doesn’t hurt that she and Manuel appear to have great chemistry going between them and put out some very good energy. Trina is more than a little vocal, but she puts out enough body language that it feels natural for her. This is another good scene.
|Scene 3 - Haley Paige and Steve Holmes|
Cute brunette Haley shows up to audition for a part in the movie next. Steve Holmes takes the tough job of stepping up to the plate, and lets Haley suck, stroke, and titty fuck his cock. After a couple minutes she’s sent on her way before Steve can pop.
This is a pretty forgettable scene, but then again, it’s meant to be. Haley looks great and shows some nice enthusiasm, but it isn’t enough to really get anything going. Of course, it’s just to be an audition and ends up being a nice tease.
|Scene 4 - Harmony Rose and Steve Holmes|
When hot bottle blonde covergirl Harmony shows up, Steve jumps up to try her out with just as much enthusiasm as he had for Haley’s knob gobbling. He kisses her on the mouth before letting her lie back on the couch so he can kiss her other holes. Harmony encourages him to eat her ass and takes him into her throat repeatedly to thank him. Steve lets her bounce on his bone in both cowgirls before fucking her from behind. Finally, Harmony strokes Steve off and collects a nice load all over her face. She even takes the required porno pop in the eye.
This is a hot scene. Harmony looks great and puts out some nice energy and vocals. She and Steve really look like they’re into each other, and the scene moves along fairly well. I’m amazed at how Harmony takes the pop in the eye and barely flinches, and definitely hope to see more of her in the future. This is another hot scene.
|Scene 5 - Haley Paige and Mick Blue|
Hot brunette Haley returns for her part in the movie, where she takes on “cop” Mick in a jail cell. He rubs her pussy with his crop and gives it a few small slaps before letting her suck his cock. Mick rewards her by fucking her pussy with a dildo while he eats it and then fucks her pussy from behind as she stands in front of a pair of bunks and kneels on one. She even gets a chance to impale her pussy on his cock reverse cowgirl style before Mick spoons her. Finally, Mick drops a creamy load on Haley’s pussy.
This is another nicely done scene. As usual, Haley is vocal, energetic, and does an all around great job. Mick meets her enthusiasm with plenty of energy himself, and the camera moves around to capture it nicely. This scene keeps things going at a nicely even level.
|Scene 6 - Lauren Phoenix and Joel Lawrence|
Joel starts out the final scene getting a little from big butt brunette Lauren in his office. She turns her oral skills to work on his cock right away, and slides her lips right down to his balls to take him into her throat. Lauren sits back on the desk so Joel can eat her pussy before fucking it missionary and doggie style. They finish it up with a little missionary work before Joel pops on Lauren’s pussy.
Surprisingly, I think this is the weakest scene in the movie. Maybe it’s because I always have such high expectations for Lauren, but here she seemed like she phoned things in. She’s vocal, but her mouth always seems to have more enthusiasm than the rest of her body. It also had less energy than the rest of the scenes, which also contributed to this scene feeling like it wasn’t at the same level as the others. This is an above average scene, but it lags behind the rest of the movie.
The News Girl is a fun little feature. It keeps the plot light, but more importantly keeps it fun. There’s plenty of jokes about the adult industry, and anybody who’s paid much attention to the industry should get a few chuckles as they watch the movie. I loved the jab at Nic Andrews about having to blow up more boats to draw attention away from the sex as well as Manuel being told that he’s going to have serious medical problems in the future with his balls if he doesn’t drop his load in the girl’s eye. Of course Evan Stone and Joel Lawrence get in the act as well to make the plot segments be good enough that you shouldn’t even consider reaching for the remote as soon as the pop shot’s done. I actually looked forward to the non-sex segments of the movie as much as the next sex scene as I went through The News Girl. The sex is also very well done, and surprisingly I think Lauren Phoenix had the worst scene here. Although it wasn’t bad, it is a nice indicator of how good the sex in the movie was. I think Harmony Rose or Missy Monroe probably had the best scene in the movie, but the first four scenes were good enough that it’s one heck of a tough choice. I think the worst thing about The News Girl is the cover. Harmony is prominently featured on the cover, which makes it look like she’s the “news girl” and that she’s going to have a major role in the movie. Instead she only appears for one scene and Missy Monroe is the “news girl”, who does appear throughout the movie. Missy’s a good looking girl, and I really wish she would have been the cover girl here both so that she’d get a bit of recognition for her role in the movie and because it gives the consumer a better impression of the movie and cast. The News Girl is a fun little feature that’s worth checking out for a few laughs and some hot sex.
The Extra StuffBios with a photo, a few personal stats, and a Legend filmography are included for the entire female cast. The photo gallery lasts almost a minute and three quarters with roughly five seconds per very nice looking snapshot or full screen photo. There’s also internet information and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts over twenty minutes and is captured by Steve Holmes and Jake Tanner. Steve Holmes makes his way around the set, talking with the cast as well as capturing some of their sex scenes being shot. He starts with Haley talking about her role and lead roles in movies before talking with Missy and Evan about sex and their scene. Trina and Manuel are next with a bit of fun before things move on with Lauren and Joel. Finally, Harmony talks about her role in the movie and how casting calls really work. The cast members are nicely identified as they take the screen and Steve Holmes does a great job interviewing them. This is a very nicely done behind the scenes featurette.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, titty fucking, oral, rimming (male > female), and toys
Raincoat Factor: Medium high
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, most of Skintight’s DVDs can be found online for between about $13 and $20, with several stores offering them for under $15. At the low end, this one’s a very good buy. The movie’s fun and has some hot sex. The technical aspects are pretty good and there’s some nice effort put into the extras. This is a nicely put together DVD.
Note to Legend: It’s great to see you shooting in the widescreen format, but in the future please take your support to an anamorphic transfer to give it the treatment it deserves. Also, there’s a lot of people who get ticked off when one girl is featured prominently on the cover of a feature and then barely appears in the movie. In the future, you might want to consider adding a few other girls to the cover, even if they’re in the background.
