Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who doesn't like a lot of solo scenes
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio mixes things up a little, going with music only for the tease portions and then leaving you hear the performers very clearly when they move on with the heavy masturbation or take each other on. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks very nice. There's a few areas where the colors seem a little washed out due to the lighting, but it works with the movie and its artistic feeling rather than fighting with it. There's also a few moments of black and white footage which ended up looking almost like a mistake as they happened in the opening scene and never happened again later in the movie.
Music: The music is nicely done. It varies in balance through each scene and shows some nice care and a style that works well for the movie.
Menus: The main menu is pretty basic, and gives the cover still with a little minor animation. The chapter menu is extremely generic and just lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number.
The FeatureSun Goddess: Malibu keeps things pretty simple. The focus is on beauty in each scene, and after letting each of the four girls do a solo scene it lets them come together to take each other on.
|Scene 1 – Teagan Presley|
Dirty blonde Teagan, in a metallic blue bikini and sporting the start of a sleeve tattoo, slowly sways around to show off her very nice body while removing her bikini on the beach. She sucks on a candy cane styled glass dildo before running it around her body and groping her tits a bit. Teagan plays with her pussy naturally before putting her toy to work on her ass and sucking it clean. She continues to fuck her ass with the toy and then sucks it clean before the camera slides away.
This is a pretty good scene. Teagan works the tease very nicely and the artistic style of the scene works well with Teagan's performance. The scene does feel a touch drawn out, but Teagan plays to the camera very nicely through all of it. Her new sleeve and side tattoos did absolutely nothing for me, however, and definitely held the scene back for me. This is a good scene that I think was held back for me more by Teagan's new ink than anything.
|Scene 2 – Gianna Lynn|
Smoking hot Asian Gianna starts her tease in a gold bikini by a series of pools. She teases the camera as she strips down and lays by the pool and then starts working her pussy over softly and naturally. She gets into the pool and runs a silver vibe around herself before fucking herself with it standing in the pool as well as sitting on the edge. Finally, Gianna sucks it clean and the scene fades out.
This is another nice solo scene. I always look forward to seeing Gianna in action, as she's a wonderfully nice person as well as beautiful. She keeps the scene moving nicely around the pool as she teases the camera and works herself over, and had me enjoying the action from start to finish. This is a nicely done solo scene that makes me wish I'd be seeing more of Gianna in action.
|Scene 3 – Sasha Grey|
Brunette Sasha struts around a few trees wearing a black bikini. She slowly strips down and plays to the camera before leaning back against a tree to finger herself. When a black vibe magically appears she sucks it and turns it loose on her pussy. Finally Sasha sucks it clean and the scene fades out.
This is another good solo scene. As always Sasha looks very nice and keeps a touch of an enigma around her. She works well for the camera, but keeps the scene surprisingly tame rather than letting it get a little nastier like Teagan's opening scene was. This is a nicely done scene.
|Scene 4 – Bree Olson|
Bottle blonde Bree, in a white bikini by a pool, shows off and strips down with a naughty smile. She continues to flash plenty of great smiles as she runs her hands around herself to play with herself sitting on the edge of a fountain. Bree looks to finger her wet pussy to an orgasm before moving on with a large fleshy dildo. She fucks herself hard with the toy and sucks it clean before the scene fades out.
This is yet another nicely done solo scene. It's definitely on the artistic side, but I like how the scenes moved from being in the day earlier to the night here. Bree's smile also helps the scene to come up a notch or two, but I was a little surprised the scene was as tame as it was. This is another well done solo scene.
|Scene 5 – Bree Olson, Gianna Lynn, Sasha Grey, and Teagan Presley|
Near the pool where Bree did her show, Teagan and Sasha pair up and Gianna and Bree team up with all of them wearing bikinis. The girls kiss before Teagan and Gianna move down to explore more of their partner. Gianna and Sasha lay back so Bree and Teagan can work them over orally before things open up with Sasha giving Teagan's ass plenty of tongue and finger attention while Teagan starts getting it on with the other girls. The girls switch off so Sasha can eat Bree while Gianna fucks Teagan's ass with her candy cane toy. The girls keep mixing it up so Bree can work on Gianna while Teagan works on Sasha again and then Teagan takes on Bree with her toy while Sasha and Gianna sixty-nine and Gianna fucks Sasha with a toy. Strap-ons also come out for Gianna to fuck Bree's pussy and Sascha to fuck Teagan's ass. The girls each suck their juices off the strap-ons before kissing their partner and letting the scene fade out.
This is a hot final scene. There's plenty of chemistry around the group, and the action is nicely captured. There's a few moments where the camera seems to move a touch fast, but it never did so in such a way to really interfere with the scene. I would have liked the girls to mix things up a little more as the opening pairing really seemed to dominate the scene. That's a pretty minor complaint, however, as this is still a very hot scene.
Sun Goddess: Malibu is a pretty good all girl release. There's a definite focus on beauty and an artistic side to the movie, but it also keeps a pretty good handle on it so that the artistic side of the movie doesn't drown out the sexual side of the movie. The camera work is sometimes a touch rough, but never so much as to interfere with the action, and the action is sometimes slowed down to get a touch more artistic. Joshua does a pretty good job balancing the sex and artistic tease, and keeps the action between the girls at a very nice level throughout the movie. I was a little disappointed that Teagan was the only girl to take anything other than a finger up her ass, but I guess that helped with the softer focus of the movie. Sun Goddess: Malibu is a nicely done all girl release that nicely balances the sex and art.
The Extra StuffThe photo gallery lasts just under three minutes with about seven seconds per nice looking snapshot. There's also a trailer for Sun Goddess Malibu, weblinks, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts a little over twenty five minutes and is nicely presented in anamorphic widescreen. Gianna starts out talking about their American Gladiator bikinis while showing off plenty of personality. The action moves outside for Jake Jacobs to get a camera ready and Teagan to pose for stills and chat about her outfit not fitting. She also talks a bit about her anal prep and shoots her scene before Gianna chats about her scene being postponed, her time in the business, her new ink, and feature dancing before posing for stills and shooting her scene. There's also a bit of time with Sasha talking about her day, her upcoming website, and Deliverance. This is a nice behind the scenes featurette. You get plenty of eye candy with the girls, but there's also plenty of very nice personality from them due to the chats and how well the guy behind the camera works it. It would have been nice to see a bit of Bree as well, but this is still a nicely done featurette that definitely adds to the overall DVD.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: All girl, tease, masturbation, toys, anal (toy), ass to mouth, group, and rimming (female > female)
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Condom Usage: None
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're a fan of solo girl movies or more artistic action, this one should be well worth the money. The scenes are nicely done and balance out the artistic and sexual sides of the movie very well. The technical aspects show some nice care and the extras shine with a great behind the scenes featurette. This is a very nicely done DVD.
Note to Skinworxxx / Adam & Eve: You made a very nice first impression here. I hope you can keep it up.
