I remembered why I hated Vivid videos. Here's

- make a nice looking sexy video cover w/ nice
picture quality (which you'll never see on the
DVD, even in the screenshots)
- throw in lots of old video clips as "bonus"
material (the video quality sucks on the
preview/bonus clips as well)
- recycle VHS tapes into DVDs (can't explain the
video quality otherwise)
Anyways, I used to be a big Racquel Darrian fan.
She has an amazing body (I think she still does
through all the graininess of the video) and a
nice face. Picked this up through a trade to see
if Vivid was any better than it used to be.
Racquel walks into a club where another girl is
flirting w/ the guys. She and this girl end up
having sex in front of all the guys. The bar is
dark and that screws up the video quality.
Guy at bar picks both girls up and brings them to
his love shack (actually, decked out basement
with really dark lighting) where his friends are
all having sex. Girls get turned on and have sex
w/ the guys there. It's always multiple girls
per guy or girl-girl or guy-girl.
Another guy (Racquel's real-life husband) who was
fantasizing about Racquel picks her up and takes
her home to have sex...mostly in the dark (you
can imagine how grainy the video is).
The movie itself is only about an hour.
Did I mention the video quality sucks? Even when
Private has bad video quality, it comes out to be
this level of Vivid video quality. I know they
have to try to be artistic w/ nice sets, but that
should never be at the expense of video quality.
The audio is also dubbed with crappy music.
Overall rating: 3 thumbs down (I cut a thumb from
a piece of paper to add to my thumbs).
