Running Time: 136 min.
Production Date: 3 / 21 / 2011
Cast: Asa Akira, Chanel Preston, Gracie Glam, Kristina Rose, Alec Knight, Bruce Venture, John Strong, and Justice Young
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are very nicely done for 99% of the movie, which is about 1% shy of what I normally expect from Ivan. That 1% is a few moments where the audio and video aren't synched (during Chanel and Gracie's opening interviews). As for the other 99%, it looks and sounds great. Ivan always has a great sense of style, and it comes across here looking and sounding great. The tease segments only have music for the audio, but the rest of the scenes are very nicely balanced and clear. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great. There's great use of lighting, a clear picture, and a solid hand on the camera. With the care Ivan always puts into his movies I'm actually shocked about the few seconds that didn't synch early in the movie.
False Advertising: Although the back cover states this release includes “5 Behind-the-Scenes Video Vignettes, 5 Behind-the-Scenes Photo Galleries, 1 Production Stills Photo Gallery”, I could only find one behind the scenes featurette and one photo gallery. This is extremely misleading to me, and I'm deducting a full point from the overall score because of it.
The Movie: This is Why I'm Hot works itself around the girls. Ivan lets them talk about themselves and what's hot about them before moving on with a nicely artistic tease segment that shows off his style extremely well and then letting them fuck.
|Scene 1 – Chanel Preston and John Strong|
Chanel's interview is worked together with her posing with a few Polaroids hanging around her before things cut to her showing off and snapping pictures of herself with one of the newfangled Polaroid cameras. The action cuts to a Polaroid of her sucking cock before Chanel pulls it out of the way to eagerly suck John's cock with plenty of throat action mixed in. John fucks her from behind before she lets him have a little more head and lays back to take it bow and arrow and missionary style. Chanel also rides John in the cowgirls, and is rewarded being fucked in midair as John lays her back to give it to her in missionary a little more. He also spoons Chanel and fucks her as they lay on their sides facing each other. John finishes Chanel off missionary style before she drops down to suck him to a very impressive facial and grabs a camera to snap one last Polaroid.
|Scene 2 – Kristina Rose and Justice Young|
Kristina gets all ghetto to show off after her interview before showing up completely naked with Justice going right to boning her from behind standing up. She drops down to mouth his manhood before letting him go back to taking her from behind and then moving her around to pile drive her and eat her pussy. Justice rolls Kristina around to fuck her missionary style before moving her around to ride him cowgirl style. She sucks him clean before getting back on for the reverse cowgirl and fucking her as she lays on her side. Justice oils up Kristina's ass and has her finger it before fucking her pussy again, and then thumbs it a bit as he fucks her from behind. Finally he pulls open and stuccos Kristina's great ass as she spreads it for him.
|Scene 3 – Gracie Glam and Bruce Venture|
Gracie chats and shows off before eagerly attacking Bruce's boner with her hand and mouth with a bit of camera mugging mixed in. She even throats it before Bruce pulls her around to ride him cowgirl style. Gracie sucks him clean before letting him admire and fuck her from behind as well as taking her as she lays on her side. Finally Bruce lets go with a nice dose of dick droppings on Gracie's big beautiful ass.
|Scene 4 – Asa Akira and Alec Knight|
Asa shows off plenty of personality in her interview to go with her great body in the tease. She gets on her knees and is drawn in by one of her awards before Alec replaces it with his cock and lets her eagerly suck and stroke it. He lays her back to eat her holes and play with her pussy before fucking her missionary style while mixing in plenty more oral action for her. Asa plays with her ass before Alec fucks her pussy from behind and mixes in a little more anal play for her. He moves on to fuck her cowgirl style and get in a quick missionary fuck before going back to eating and fucking her from behind. Finally Alec pulls out to pop on Asa's ass and let her rub it in before presenting her with a trophy and letting her chat with Ivan a little.
This is Why I'm Hot is a smoking hot fuck flick. I'll admit to being a little surprised going in, as I went in thinking the title referred just to the girls in it, but it equally refers to Ivan's skill behind the camera. There's no doubt as to the female talent in front of the camera here with superstars like Asa Akira, Chanel Preston, Gracie Glam, and Kristina Rose, but Ivan really seems to take them to the next level here letting them show off some great personality as well as capturing them with some nicely artistic teases. I love the Polaroid opening for Chanel's scene, and although she's somebody who I took a little while to warm to, scenes like this are why I've really been impressed with her lately. Kristina Rose never seems short of personality, and does a great job showing it off here as well as turning out a smoking hot scene with Justice. Gracie is as beautiful and playful as ever in her interview and her fuck was magnificent from the first suck right up to the pop on her great ass. I'm not sure, but I might have had such a rush of blood away from the head on my shoulders during Gracie's scene that I might have lost a couple minutes of conscious time. That leaves Asa, who “hot” doesn't begin to describe in a year that makes her a top contender for performer of the year in any award show. She turns out a great fuck with Alec and seems impossible not to like in her interviews before and after the scene. This is Why I'm Hot shows just why I've been so impressed with Ivan over the last few years. Not only does he have a great sense of artistic style, but he knows when to step back with his style and just capture the girls doing what they do best. It's about time people start noticing how great of a director Ivan is, and This is Why I'm Hot easily comes out as one of the best gonzo movies of 2011.
The Extras: Trailers are included for five other Tom Byron Pictures releases. The photo gallery lasts about six and a half minutes. There's also a behind the scenes featurette and commercials.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts sixty seven minutes and nicely features the entire female cast. Asa starts things out chatting with Ivan and working around some of her opening. Chanel Preston is next, who poses for her stills with Ivan, shoots her sex, and shares a laugh or two. Things move on with Gracie, who shakes her booty for the opening and then having more than a little fun with Ivan shooting her scenes. Ivan introduces the first production day and some of what he has planned. He returns to the office later in the day talking about some of the planned shoot as well as showing off his office. Ivan continues to talk about what he's doing for the movie, from showing backgrounds on the computer to talking about the cameras and how he's trying to do something different for each girl. There's plenty of time put into the preparation for Chanel's scene, which is kind of cool due to how unique it as and due to showing Ivan's great love of cameras. Finally you get some eye candy with Kristina as well as her chatting with Ivan for her setup and interview. This is a very nice behind the scenes featurette. You get plenty of eye candy, a bit of fun, and LOTS of Ivan. I'll add that after having the pleasure of being on an Ivan before, what you see here is what you get with Ivan (and yes, his office is normally packed with that much stuff). He is that friendly and cares that much about doing quality work. This is a very nice addition to the DVD.
Condom Usage: None
Final Thoughts: Buy it!
Note to Tom Byron Pictures: You have one hell of a great director with Ivan. Please don't fuck him over in the future by making claims on the cover as blatantly misleading as you are here.
