The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Something about this one scares me, but with Julia Ann and Celeste on the cover I canít resist it!
Initial Reaction: Itís kind of like a tornado. Iím not sure if it sucks or blows.
Who Should Watch It : Extreme Julia Ann fans
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who can afford the money to pick up one of Julia Annís current Wicked DVDs.
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is decent. Itís nothing outstanding, but for the time the feature was made it seems decently done. The video shows some of the age of the feature. Thereís a blue bar that runs down the left side of the screen and a bit of grain. Surprisingly the lighting is pretty good, but there are a fair amount of soft focus blurs.
Music: The music is the cheesy porno music that gave people a reason to make fun of porno music. Itís way too loud, sometimes completely covers up the stars, and is about as good of a match for some of the scenes as Bill Clinton at a Promise Keepers meeting. Itís also repetitive and loops at odd and noticeable times.
False Advertising: Celeste, Chelsea Lynx, Woody Long, and Tom Byron are listed on the cover, but arenít in the movie. Thatís four out of seven they got wrong, which I think is such poor performance that you can even get fired from government work. I would have a hard time understanding this if it were a current release, but I think this movie was originally released over five years before the DVD appeared! Since I picked up this DVD half because of Julia Ann and half because I saw Celeste listed on the cover, Iím pissed! Iím deducting a half point from the overall rating because I think this kind of mistake on the cover is inexcusable.
Menus: If I could only use one word for the menus on Raunch 9 Iíd have a hard time deciding between ďShitĒ and ďSucksĒ. Basically all you get is a chapter menu where you can choose a scene by selecting a title from alongside a picture of the movie cover.
The FeatureEvery sweeps week reporter Julia Ann gets given a story involving sex or money. This time her friend VixXxen decides to give her a head start and hook her up with a gigolo. Julia doesnít believe it at first, but soon VixXxen is introducing her to other people in the industry and her story starts to form.
|Scene 1 - Julia Ann and Aaron Colt|
Julia Ann, looking as fantastic as ever, starts things off with Aaron Colt. Julia starts out working out with Aaron training her. Aaron slowly strips Julia down and tongues her pussy before letting her mouth his man meat. Julia lets Aaron bone her from behind as well as missionary style as she lays back on the equipment before he decorates her stomach.
Thereís some chemistry here, but that isnít enough to save this scene. It moves so slow that I think even a Zen master would be reaching for the remote before Julia even gets to the blowjob. I think even Julia and Aaron got a little bored, as Julia seemed to be going on auto-pilot by the end of the scene. The camera also seems to be held at odd angles and moves constantly rather than giving a good view of whatís happening. It all works together to turn out a scene that doesnít quite get up to average.
|Scene 2 - Diva, Laurie Cameron, and Steve Drake|
Long haired Latino Diva and cute short haired brunette Laurie Cameron take on Steve Drake in the second scene as Julia Ann and VixXen peep in on them from outside. The three of them move back and forth to work each other over, with Laurie showing some great enthusiasm towards oral work. Steve fucks each of them while the girls eat each other, and then gives Laurie an impressive facial.
Thereís one good thing about this scene, and itís Laurie Cameron. She shows excellent enthusiasm throughout the entire scene, and is a joy to watch throughout it all. Steve also does a decent job, but Diva almost seems lost. The only person more lost is the camera man, who doesnít seem to know where to look.
|Scene 3 - VixXxen and Alex Sanders|
VixXen takes on Alex Sanders in the third scene as Julia Ann watches them from behind and diddles herself. She has him start out kissing her boots before allowing him to make his way up her body and to rim her ass. She gives him directions on how to lick her before trading places with him and sucking his cock. VixXxen makes Alex beg for her to fuck him, and takes a facial after a fairly short reverse cowgirl ride.
I have mixed feelings on this scene. The camera work still left a lot to be desired, although it was improved from the earlier scenes. There were two things that I really liked about this scene, however. First was Julia masturbating in the background. It added a nice second level to the scene. The main thing I loved about the scene, however, was the male submissive, which Alex played extremely well and VixXxen played off of just as well. Despite the camera work I couldnít help but like this scene.
|Scene 4 - Shelby Stevens and Ian Daniels|
Shelby Stevens and Ian Daniels get it on in the penultimate scene so she can teach him how to make his wedding night perfect. They kiss and caress each other before Shelby has Ian go down and kiss her kitty. Shelby rewards him with a hummer before laying back for him to fuck her missionary style, and then lets Ian tongue her from behind. Shelby takes it doggy style as well before finishing things with a facial and everything that couldnít make it that far on her chest.
This scene also leaves me with mixed emotions. Not surprisingly the negative part is the camera work and the good part is most everything else. Shelby is gorgeous, looks like a lot of fun in this scene, and really gets into it. I really wanted to like this scene, and if not for the doggie action being extremely short, I might have.
|Scene 5 - Julia Ann and VixXxen|
Julia Ann and VixXxen finish things up. Julia tries taking a shower while VixXxen takes a bath, and when VixXxen notices she thinks itís shower time. The girls tongue each other before working on each other with the shower head. It finally ends with the porno timer going off.
This is an okay scene. Julia and VixXxen have nice chemistry, but just as with Juliaís first scene, it seems to go on forever. It also seems repetitive as the girls just trade back and forth with two actions. Finally, the scene feels like it has more to go and is cut off because they ran out of time or money to buy film. Itís not the kind of thing that leaves a good final impression.
Raunch 9 is one heck of a lousy porno, and sadly I donít think it had to be one. Thereís some nice thoughts to the scenes, as well as very good chemistry in almost all of the scenes. All of the girls are great here, with the opening scene between Julia Ann and Aaron Colt easily being the worst scene in the movie for dragging along nearly as long as an elephantís gestation period. The biggest problem is the camera work. There was rarely a time in the feature when I was happy with the camera angle for over five seconds, and many times the angles were obstructed by something or someone, or were trying to be artistic and failing miserable. Raunch 9 had a lot of potential, but wasted almost every bit of it.
The Extra StuffNot a single one.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, group, lesbian, fetishwear, B&D, shoe worship, masturbation, voyeurism, and rimming (male > female)

The Bottom Line:Currently, Raunch 9 can be found online for between $7 and $25 with most stores offering it for under $10. Skip this one! The technical aspects are the best thing about it, and those are just average. There arenít any extras and the movie ruins hot sex with horrible camera work.
