Pirates 2: Stagnetti's Revenge (Blu-Ray)

Pirates II finds a sweet spot between porn and erotica.

Expectations

I really enjoyed both Pirates and Pirates II on regular DVD. I wanted to check out the Blu-Ray, so I could see how the feature works with the extended sex scenes.

Summary

The main feature and the extended sex scenes all fit on a single Blu-Ray disk, and I got this hoping to see how the feature worked with the full sex scenes. But, if Digital Playground made it possible to play the feature with the extended sex scenes, it was not obvious to me how to do it.

Still, the improved picture quality on Blu-Ray will be worth the added cost for many fans.

The Cast

Jenna Haze (F) Belladonna (F) Katsuni (F) Brianna Love (F) Shyla Stylez (F) Sasha Grey (F) Veronica Rayne (F) Shawna Lenee (F)
Jesse Jane (F) Shay Jordan (F) Abbey Brooks (F) Rhylee Richards (F) Stoya (F) Brea Lynn (F) Gabriella Fox (F) Riley Steele (F)
Evan Stone (M) Steven St. Croix (M) Manuel Ferrara (M) Marco Banderas (M) Ben English (M) James Deen (M)
Tommy Gunn (M) Mick Blue (M) Charles Dera (M)

The Feature

In my original review, I focused on the extended sex scenes, and raincoaters may want to skip the feature, and just watch the extended sex scenes, which are excellent.

In this review, I will focus on the feature. It is extremely well-done for a porno!

The Performers

Jesse Jane and Evan Stone are the main stars, and they both are very good at reading lines. Jesse is especially good. Her wardrobe is also excellent, and her big fake boobs almost explode out of her bodice. Her GG with Belladonna is likely to win Best GG sex scene of 2008, and even the shortened version is extremely hot.

Katsuni looks great in her roll as the evil Xie Feng, and her beautiful body loods fantastic during her sex scenes. Unfortunately, her accent makes it difficult to understand her sometimes.

Tommy Gunn is also very good in his speaking parts, as are some of the professional actors they hired.

The Script

The feature would have been better if it were 1/2 hour shorter. This could have been accomplished with tighter writing and editing.

A couple of scenes were unnecesary. For instance, in the set up for Evan's scene with Brianna and Rhylee, they focus on Evan's insecurity and bluster. This is well-established in almost every other scene with Evan, and it is superfluous here. Also in the set up for Steven St. Croix's threesome with Jesse and Shay, there is a lot of psycho-babble, which I found completely unbelievable for two hardened Pirate-hunters.

The ending is very poorly done. Evan kills Stagnetti, but there are no witnesses, so no one believes him. Then Sasha Grey and Belladonna show up in his cabin to thank him for saving their lives. The resulting sex scene is excellent. But if DP is paying attention to its own script, they didn't believe that he saved them.

The feature ends with the promise that they are about to go save Serena, who was played by Janine in Pirates I. Hopefully they have a signed contract with Janine already, or many viewers will be disappointed.

The Sex

The sex scenes are very short in the main feature. They add entertainment value, like the special effects or the sword fights, but you are unlikely to get off while watching the main feature.

Blu-Ray

The blu-ray is excellent, but there is one small drawback.

On the positive side, some of the detail on the sex POPS! Shay's bush looks fantastic, as does Stoya's pussy when it is glazed with sticky pirate-juice. Some of the graphics are great under Blu-ray. The best to my eye was when a big black pirate goes to the bottom of the ocean to bring up Vincent Stagnetti. (This scene definitely needed to be followed with an Inter-Racial sex scene-- maybe the big black guy with Katsuni.)

On the negative side, some of the computer graphics look cartoonish on Blu-ray. The worst example to my eye was when Katsumi uses a squid-scorpion creature to turn Jesse into a pirate.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Digital Playground did an excellent job on this feature. I hope they will rise to the challenge of making Pirates III event better than Pirates II.

The main feature bridges the gap between R-rated erotica and hardcore porn. This makes it an excellent choice for couples. The sex scenes are hot, but short, and will likely help a couple to get in the mood, without getting them so excited that they won't have anything left for afterwards.

This may be the future of erotica in the post-internet age. In the film era, porn was the exclusive domain of true perverts, who would brave the hazards of seedy porn theaters in order to whip out their cocks and stroke off in a room full of dirty old men and young pimply teen-agers with fake IDs. With the rise of VCR and DVD, people could watch porn in the privacy of their own homes, but they needed to walk into the back room of a video-rental store, and there was the possibility of getting seen by their neighbors. In the internet age, you can check out porn without anyone ever knowing, and now almost everyone checks out porn once in a while.

This means that younger viewers, who may have seen hardcore sex before their teen-years, aren't likely to be shocked by the sight of a hard dick stroking a warm wet pussy. This will likely up the ante for erotic videos, and Pirates II may be heading on a course into the future.
