Director: Tina Tyler
Cast: Nina Hartley, Kylie Ireland, Kimi Lixx, Brooke Hunter, Dru Berrymoore, Tina Tyler, Tara Indiana, Drew Andrews, Paul Carrington, Steve Hatcher, Don Hollywood, Randy Spears, and Sean Michaels in sexual roles and George Kaplan, and Marianne Walter in non-sex roles
Initial Expectations: Tina Tyler has done some great things both in front of and behind the camera. With the cast sheís assembled here, Iím expecting just as much going up as going down.
Initial Reaction: It has a few minor problems, but also has some great sex thatís fun to watch.
Who Should Watch It : Fans of the stars and raincoaters
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who thinks sex stars should quit when theyíre old enough to legally drink
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is very clear and well balanced. Even Tinaís narration of the scenes are nicely balanced with the rest of the audio. The video lacks a little, but pretty good considering the set. Many of the scenes are a little on the dark side, and thereís a few soft focus problems. None of the problems are so intrusive that Tina has to start thinking of changing her last name to Powers, but they are noticeable.
Music: The music is soft and very suitable for elevators.
False Advertising: The cover states that there are cast & filmmaker profiles, but I didnít see them anywhere on this DVD. Itís a sloppy mistake and one that I hope Pandora doesnít continue to make.
Menus: The menus are very simple. The main menu doesnít have any animation and the chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a still of the chapter and a title for the chapter.
The Feature: Tina Tylerís Going Down focuses on that place Steven Tyler made you dream about years ago with Love in an Elevator. Each scene takes place in an elevator and has itís own little story to go with it. Each scene is also nicely introduced on a screen that gives the names of everybody in the scene.
Nina Hartley and Sean Michaels start things out in Same Time Every Year as a couple who come back to the same building every year for a fling. Ninaís showing her age a bit, but still has an amazingly tight body and smoldering sexuality that canít be denied. They canít make it back to their room, and get started in the elevator with a little groping and kissing before Nina drops down to start sucking Seanís cock. She lets Sean fuck her from behind, and finally begs to taste him. Nina goes back to sucking Seanís schlong as well as his balls, and finally takes his dick droppings on her tongue and in her mouth. Itís a very warm scene with a lot of chemistry. The sceneís a little on the dark side, which holds it back a little, but also adds to some of the elevator feel.
Next up, Steve Hatcher elevates Tara Indiana, a nice looking redhead, and Dru Berrymoore, a hot blonde who has a bit of a nasty streak, in Triangle. Tara kisses Steve and then pulls Dru into him so they can get started while she undresses. Dru soon bends over to work on Steveís cock with some of her normal oral enthusiasm as Tara licks her pussy before both girls work their way down to suck Steveís cock. Tara, being the boss, ends up in the middle first for some fucking and sucking before Dru gets her turn to be a meat holster. Dru finally takes Steveís pop in her mouth and plays with it a bit while Tara nuzzles the back of her neck. Itís a very hot scene that has some great chemistry between all three of the participants. The main action is very good, but the ending pop, nuzzling, and eyes back and forth give this scene what just might be my favorite ending to a scene.
Dykes on Bikes puts together biker bitches Kylie Ireland and Kimi Lixx, two of my favorite performers. Kimi hops up on the side rails so Kylie can lick her pussy and give it four of her fingers before getting down to lick and finger Kylieís snatch. After working each other over slowly, Kylie and Kimi collapse on the floor for a great sixty-nine . Kimi gets surprisingly aggressive here, pulling Kylieís face into her twat and fingering her own ass. Itís an extremely hot scene with great chemistry. Itís obvious the girls are both way into each other and having a lot of fun. It borders on being a little long, but not so much as to ruin the scene. The worst thing about it is that it has the common problem for all girl scenes of feeling cut off at the end. Here itís worse than normal as the girls still seem to be fully into lapping away rather than feeling like theyíre winding down. This would normally bring the scene down a bit more for me, but Iím not sure if there was enough blood flowing to my brain for me to make a truly good decision.
Brooke Hunter takes on Don Hollywood and Randy Spears in the next scene as a fifth year Anniversary Gift. She starts out blindfolded and doesnít know sheís not alone with Don until he has her reach out and touch Randyís cock. After having her blindfold removed, Brooke drops down to warm up both guys orally. After having enough, Don steps behind her and puts on a condom (proving heís a real guy rather than somebody with the power to make condoms appear out of nowhere). He fucks Brooke from behind as she continues to suck Randyís cock. Randy also takes the time to sheath his sword before sliding it into Brookeís bald beaver while she yanks Donís willie. She finally drops down and plays with her pussy while the guys jerk off. She takes Randy on her face and tits and Don in her mouth, possibly swallowing a good portion of his spurt. Normally Iíd complain about this as a cop-out, but since she starts gagging a little when his cock doesnít look close to the back of her throat, Iíd say itís got very high chances of being authentic. Brooke makes this into another fun scene by talking about how insane they are as well as how much she loves it. Once again it also has great chemistry, which helps make this scene a great winner.
Finally, Tina Tyler gets Stuck by Paul Carrigan and Drew Andrews, in her last in front of the camera appearance. Paul and Drew have been in quite a few gay and bi movies, but very few straight ones. Tina has used bi guys in some of her other features, but takes it another step forward here. They start out groping each other before whipping it out and giving each other handjobs while the other couple in the elevator panics at the elevator being stuck. As they play, Tina watches from the security office and plays with herself as the other people try calling her on the emergency phone. Tina apparently forgot how redheads are hated throughout the universe and has her hair dyed red, which looks very good. Everybody cums onto their own hands, starting with Drew, and then licks them clean. Itís a surprisingly hot scene that has great chemistry. Iím not bi, and have no aspirations of even trying it, but still have to admit that itís a nicely done scene. Tinaís segment is fairly dark, but it kind of fits the scene and her dark corner in the building.
I always thought that if I was going to be an inanimate object Iíd like to be a womanís bicycle seat. Iím starting to change my mind and think about being an elevator instead after seeing the job Tina Tylerís done around it. The scenes are all nicely done, and almost all have great chemistry. Iíd be hard pressed to find the best scene out of this bunch, but I think the opener with Nina Hartley and Sean Michaels lacks a little more than the others. It still has the same great chemistry, but it seems a little more limited than the others. Tina also stretches things a little with the final scene, but the chemistry and Tinaís direction keeps it friendly enough that a lot of people who might be turned off normally might give it the chance it deserves. Tina Tyler has come a long way as a director since Tina Tylerís Favorite Blowjobs, and has turned out another nicely done all sex feature here.
Extras: Trailers are included for Going Down, Girl Show, Girl Show 2, and Affliction. Thereís contact information which includes the normal listing of web sites. The main extra, however, is the thirty five minutes of behind the scenes footage. Tina talks a bit about making the movie, how she got hooked up with Pandora, and also interviews several of the stars. Dru Berrymoore leads off the interviews, with Drew Andrews, Nina Hartley, Paul Carrigan, Kimi Lixx, Kylie Ireland, Steve Hatcher, and Tara Indiana. They all talk about some of their favorite people to work with (somehow Tina appears on everybodyís list), how they got into the movies, and the scene theyíre going. Theyíre great interviews, with Kimi coming off as extremely cute and real, Nina as very experienced, and the rest just as really real. Thereís also a few outtakes from the scenes, such as Kylie and Kimi working on their dirty talk which actually shows up twice, and Brooke, Randy, and Don practicing for their scene. Itís a very well done behind the scenes that shows a bit of everything and the stars as real people.
Themes: Straight, inter-racial, spanking, group, lesbian, gay (handjob), swallowing, and masturbation
Raincoat Factor: Very high
Overall: Currently, Tina Tylerís Going Down can be found online for between $19 and $25 with only a few stores offering it so far. If youíre a fan of Tina Tyler, either in front or behind the camera, give this one a chance. It has some amazing chemistry and fun scenes. There are a few technical problems that are fairly minor, but the extra footage does a great job of making up with it.
Note to Pandora / Tina Tyler: Itís great to see you using women who look real rather than the silicone dolls in most features. Itís also great to see you using women who are a bit older than the norm, especially when theyíre this sexy. Please pay a bit more attention to your covers. I was borderline between giving this a 3.5 or 4 overall, and it assured you of getting the lower rating.
