The Short Story
Initial Expectations: The original Screen Dreams sticks in my head as being a very nice movie, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: It's a rare release that handles a focus on beauty very well.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting the main focus to be on the beauty of the women
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting heavy masturbation or nastiness
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done, but slightly on the artistic side. The audio is dominated by the music, but the girls come through a little at times. The video is presented in the full frame format and looks very nice. There's great use of light and shadows, and a little black and white and sepia footage also sneaks in. The camera work is smooth and mixes in a fair amount of slow motion. There are a few areas that get a little grainy, with the care put towards the visuals and the artistic feel here I can't help but think that this was intentional.
Music: The music is very nicely done. Is soft and sensual, and feels just right for the scenes. It normally dominates the audio, but does let the girls through occasionally.
False Advertising: The cover claims that there are 16 High Quality Slide Shows. While I can't disagree on the quality issue, I can on the number as I only find 12 on the DVD. Sadly, I'm deducting a half point from the overall score because of this.
Menus: The main menu nicely lays out the choices with a little action playing in the background. The chapter menu nicely lets you choose a scene based on a still of each girl's face along with their name. Once you choose a girl, you're given the choice between watching her scene or watching a nice looking slideshow with the girl you chose.
The FeatureScreen Dreams series collects twelve scenes focusing on beauty in each release. In eleven of the twelve the girls strip down and tease the camera, while one other doubles up on the beauty with two girls taking each other on.
|Scene 1 Aria Giovanni|
Brunette Aria runs her hands around herself in a few different outfits before dancing around slowly as her photo's taken. She shows off topless quite a bit before showing the bush, and lets her hands move around her body softly as she shows off. Aria even masturbates a little very gently before the scene backs off and comes to a soft close.
This is a decent little tease and solo scene. As always Aria looks fantastic, and with how many outfits and different shots you get here it's hard not to like it. The action never has any real depth to it, but also never seems like it wants to be anything more than eye candy. This is a decent start to the movie.
|Scene 2 Anita Dark|
Bottle blonde Anita shows off in a sexy black and white bra and panty set both inside a large living room as well as in doorways for the light to play around her as she strips down a bit. She rubs her tits and pussy lightly and even takes a few tastes of her fingers before the scene fades out.
This is another nice bit of eye candy. Anita has a few extra years on her, but still has a great body that the camera captures extremely well. The locations and outfits are pretty straightforward here, and it moves at a very nice pace. This is another pretty good scene.
|Scene 3 Carli Banks|
Dirty blonde Carli starts her scene out in a little blue button down shirt and a frayed jean skirt as she strips and dances around a little. She falls back on the bed before stripping off her skirt and rubbing her pussy through and under her white lacy panties.
This scene worked pretty well for me. Carli puts out some nice eye candy, but the masturbation is much stronger and actually feels like a little something. It builds up nicely through the scene and Carli looks to get into it nicely. This is a pretty hot scene.
|Scene 4 Alana Langford|
Redhead Alana starts her scene out in black stockings with a sexy purple bra and panties in front of a fire. She sways around as she runs her hands around her body, and then slowly strips off her top while leaving her panties on the entire time. Finally the scene comes to a close feeling like it had just begun.
This just might be the weakest scene in the movie. It doesn't even last three minutes, and in addition to the extremely short length it doesn't seem to go anywhere. This would have been okay as a bonus scene, but as a part of the main movie it just doesn't cut it.
|Scene 5 Shay Laren|
Brunette Shay moves around in a sexy black bra and panties, both with natural light bleaching things out a little coming through a window as well as in the shadows. She doesn't waste any time showing her tits, and soon after the panties are slid past her sexy black shoes. Shay continues to dance around before laying back to play with her pussy a little. Finally she rubs her tits before the scene fades out.
This is an okay scene. Shay is cute, but at times comes off looking a bit clueless. The lighting also interfered with the scene for me, with she contrast of shadows and natural light bleaching things out throwing my eyes for a loop. Once it gets into the masturbation it picks things up a bit, but the lighting still didn't work the best for me. This is an okay scene.
|Scene 6 Angie|
Brunette Angie starts her scene out in a black bra with a purplish shirt and a pink skirt before they disappear so she can take an outdoor shower. The action is cut together with her doing a little dance in sepia toned footage as well as laying back on an elegant couch before she waves goodbye without ever really masturbating.
This is an a pretty good scene. Angie is not only beautiful with a great body, but she has a touch of a playful attitude that comes out with her little smiles and eyes. This scene left me hoping to see more of Angie in the future.
|Scene 7 Lela Star|
Brunette Lela starts out the second half of the movie in a sex black bra, panties, and stockings by a barred exterior door. She shows of fa bit before stripping off her top, and follows it with her panties a bit later. She lays back to play with her pussy as the lights drop down making it seem like the masturbation lasted for hours before it finally fades out.
This is a hot scene. Lela looks nothing short of fabulous in nothing but a little black fabric, and plays to the camera extremely well. There's plenty of great looks and some nice passion to her masturbation to keep the scene moving at a very nice pace. This is one of the best scenes in the movie.
|Scene 8 Sasha Grey|
Brunette Sasha starts her scene out in a knit grey button down top with pink panties. She plays around her panties a bit without touching herself much before stripping off her panties and letting her fingers move around her tits and pussy. She even breaks out a jelly dildo to fuck herself with before taking a taste and letting the scene fade out.
With Sasha Grey in front of the camera it's rare to ever be disappointed, and that hasn't changed here. Sasha turns in the hardest scene in the movie, and still makes it a thing of beauty due to the style of the movie. There's some great tease footage as well, and although this might not be my favorite scene in the movie, it sure isn't far off.
|Scene 9 Tia Tanaka|
Tia makes her way through an outdoor garden to a little pool in a black and white polka dot bikini. She runs her hands around herself a bit before stripping off her top and then her bottom before she walks inside and sits beside a bathtub to masturbate softly. Finally the scene ends with Tia looking like she might be satisfied.
This is a pretty good scene. Tia looks as nice as ever, and the outdoor location was handled very well. There's quite a contrast between the outdoor and indoor locations, and that gave this scene a slightly odd feeling. This is a pretty good scene, but focusing on indoors or outdoors might have helped it out a bit more.
|Scene 10 Mia Stone|
Bottle blonde Mia, who I'm guessing is in Budapest looking at the skyline, starts showing off in a white sleeveless knit top and a jean skirt. She teases with her tits before dropping her skirt to show a sexy black thong. She continues the show before removing the thong and masturbating both outside and inside.
This scene does the indoor / outdoor mix very nice. Mia is beautiful and adds some very nice playfulness to the outdoor tease. It continues inside in a way that feels very smooth and doesn't break the scene apart like it was in Tia's scene. This scene worked very well for me, and is another of my favorites in the movie.
|Scene 11 Haylee Le and Celeste Star|
Brunette Celeste, in a little orange bra and panties, greets Asian Haylee, in a pink button down top and jean skirt, at the door and guides her in by a tan couch. They kiss and play with each other lightly with Celeste's hands finding their way into Haylee's skirt repeatedly. Celeste kisses her way around Haylee and showers her with flowers before licking and fingering her as Haylee lays back on a couch. She even rides Haylee's tongue and bends over so they can suck each other's tits before straddling Haylee to let Haylee play with both of their pussies at the same time. Haylee fucks Celeste from behind with a little red dildo before laying back for Celeste to work her over, and they finish things up kissing as the scene fades out.
This is the only scene in the movie with two people having sex, and it made sure to make it count. The girls are both gorgeous, and there's still a very nice focus on tease and eye candy to start the scene. It moves along at a pretty good pace with the sex, and the girls each get some long periods to work on each other. This is a darn hot scene and even though it's the longest in the movie (at just over fourteen minutes), I could have easily watched these two ladies work each other over much longer.
|Scene 12 Lacie Heart|
Finally, bottle blonde Lacie starts out in a baby blue spaghetti strap top, a jean skirt, and ruffled baby blue panties with a similar bra. Lacie slowly strips down and plays with herself on a red couch both laying back and on all fours. Finally her panties come off and she sets into her pussy with her full attention before the scene comes to a close with Lacie looking like she might have satisfied herself.
This is a good final scene. Lacie looks very nice, as usual, and I love her simple and common outfit. There's a nice pace to the scene as well, and although it never rushes to get to the masturbation when it does it focuses on it nicely. This is a nice scene to close the movie with.
Screen Dreams 2 is one of the rare adult movies out there that puts beauty first without feeling like it's giving up much. Part of the reason it doesn't feel like it's giving up much is because there's not a single guy here and only one scene with two people in it, but the artistic aspect of the release also helps it out. There's often several locations or styles being edited together to make the scene, and while it helps out the beauty aspect of the scene, the beauty aspect also helps it out by binding the different locations or styles together. Of course it doesn't hurt that you have some well known sexpots like Aria Giovanni, Lela Star, and Sasha Grey here, just to name a few, but lesser known stars like Angie and Haylee Le also give it some depth. Alana Langford was the only girl to turn in a scene that didn't do much for me, and there's it's simply because the scene was so short it didn't have a chance to go anywhere. If you like solo women and want a focus on beauty rather than seeing if they could fit something the size of an entire presidential candidate up their ass head first, Screen Dreams 2 should be well worth checking out.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Slice of Pie, Afrodite Superstar, The Devil Wears Leather, Dark Confessions, and Big City Nights. There's also commercials and an interview with Aria Giovanni.
Aria Giovanni's interview lasts about ten minutes. She starts out talking about being an LA girl but that she might be moving to New York City and why she actually loves New York. She talks about her background, her website, and a bit about her personal life as well as talking about her photos, the different types of shoots she does, and why she likes shooting stills. Aria even talks a little of what she hopes is in her future. This is a nice interview. Aria comes off as being as put together above her shoulders as she is below them and keeps a very natural feel to the interview. This is a very nice extra that Aria Giovanni fans should really appreciate.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Solo girl, tease, masturbation, toys, and lesbian (light)
Raincoat Factor: Very high if you don't mind footage that doesn't get overly explicit
Condom Usage: None needed
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Adam & Eve's DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with a few stores offering them near the low end. If you want a focus on beauty rather than nastiness, this one should be worth the money. Yes, the movie's a bit on the short side, but it's very hard to find a release that does beauty as well as it's done here. The technical aspects are also done very nicely, and the interview with Aria Giovanni adds very well to the overall DVD. This is a well done release.
Note to XXXwebDVD / Adam & Eve: It's nice to see a little more effort going into the extras on the XXXwebDVDs! Thank you! Now please watch your cover claims a little better as sloppiness like this never helps anybody.
