The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Michael Raven has made some great features, and adding Stormy Daniels to the mix should only make things better. Iím really looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: It's a very well done movie and a DVD that shows some nice care as well.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting a heavy feature with a bit of suspense
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting a lighter feature or nastier sex
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are pretty well done. The audio is very clear with a great balance and no background noises. The video is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, and looks very nice. There's some great attention to lighting and just a hint of grain.
Music: The music is very well done. It rests very quietly in the background and doesn't have the typical porno music feel to hold it back.
Menus: The main menu is pretty good, and blends the boxcover with a little animation and a bit of the movie. As usual, the chapter menu is fairly generic and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a scene number rather than giving the viewer something useful like the name(s) of the performer(s) in each scene.
The FeatureSamatha (Stormy Daniels) has had a rough past. With a history of paranoia, things finally look like they might be turning around with Donovan (Randy Spears), who has money, a great job, and a new big house for them. Unfortunately, her past looks like it might be catching up with her as she's sure somebody's watching her even though nobody believes her. When she and her friend (Avena Lee) find proof that she might be completely sane, they're determined to figure out what's really going on and do something about it.
|Scene 1 - Stormy Daniels and Randy Spears|
Stormy pulls Randy in for a little makeup sex after a little fight. They kiss as they fall back on the bed with Randy quickly going down to suck and squeeze Stormy's big fat titties. They kiss a little more before Randy moves down to worship Stormy's leg, feet, and pussy with his tongue and fingers. Stormy sucks Randy's cock while giving him a little ball attention and some great eyes before riding him cowgirl style. They also get some missionary work in before Randy pops around Stormy's pussy.
This is a well done scene. There's very nice chemistry between Randy and Stormy and they keep things moving very well. The action is well captured and has a very nice mix of close-ups and distance shots. This is a hot scene that's very well done.
|Scene 2 - Avena Lee and Steven St. Croix|
Steven gets it on with cute oriental Avena, and starts out under the covers working her over before coming up to kiss her and suck her tits. He moves back down to lick her pussy before kneeling on the bed for Avena to suck his cock while showing off a stark white ass. Steven starts fucking her doggie style before spooning her, and then gets on top to fuck her missionary style. Finally, Avena gets up to ride him cowgirl style before laying back missionary style and letting Steven pop from her chin all the way over her head with Avena trying to get every last drop.
This is a pretty good scene. Steven and Avena mix things up nicely, and there's some nice chemistry between them. They put out some nice energy to the point that they're both good and sweaty by the end of the scene, with Steven even getting a touch intense with her. The scene has a very nice mix of close-ups and distance shots once again, and great lighting to make it a bit sexier. This is another well done scene.
|Scene 3 - Courtney Cummz and Lee Stone|
While everybody's gone, gardener Lee gets it on with smoking hot Courtney, who's in a white mesh top and jeans. He helps her out of her top to admire her tits in her bra before opening it up to kiss her wonderfully pierced nipples. Lee continues to help Courtney out of her clothes to tongue and finger her pierced pussy as she lies back in a chair before she kneels on the floor to swallow Lee's oversized cock. She lets him fuck her face as she drools everywhere with Lee adding even more spit to her mouth. Courtney sits back in the chair for Lee to fuck her before he picks her up for a midair cowgirl fuck. He also takes her from behind before popping in her mouth as she does her best baby bird impression. She shows it off to him and then swallows it down.
This is a hot scene. Courtney and Lee both put out plenty of energy, and she takes his size extremely well in both her mouth and her pussy. The action is well captured once again along with being extremely well lit. This is a good scene.
|Scene 4 - Stormy Daniels and Lee Stone|
Stormy takes Lee away from his work to get it on with him in the living room next. They kiss while undressing each other before Lee drops down to munch her muff and eat her ass while bending her around. She sucks his cock in return and lets him fuck her tits before climbing up to ride him cowgirl style as he gives her ass a few slaps. Stormy gives Lee a little more head before riding him reverse cowgirl style, and gives him a little more head before going back to the traditional cowgirl. Finally, she gets down to suck and stroke Lee to a nice facial finish before playing with it briefly and swallowing it down.
This is a hot scene. As always Stormy looks great and does a fantastic job fucking and sucking. The lighting works great here once again and helps things out with a few great shadows while never interfering with the views. This is another very well done scene.
|Scene 5 - Kirsten Price and Randy Spears|
Finally, Randy gets it on with Kirsten, and starts her out with plenty of pussy licking and a little finger work. She reciprocates with some great head before climbing up for a cowgirl ride, and then lets Randy take her from behind. Finally Randy pulls out and pops on her ass with an impressive load.
This is a pretty good scene. Randy and Kirsten have nice chemistry and put out some nice energy as well. It seems a little short with only two positions, but the pop finishes things nicely. This is a pretty good final scene.
Watching Samantha is a great feature. Once again Stormy Daniels has done a fantastic job with the script, which develops very well with some very nice twists while also fitting the sex in nicely rather than cramming it in whenever somebody thinks there should be a sex scene. It's helped out even more by a cast who acts their way through it very well as well as some great direction by Michael Raven. He knows the importance of lighting and music, and put both to full use to help the movie out here. Sexually the scene is very even with nobody really standing out for doing a fantastic or a poor job, and it also stays very couples friendly for those wanting something to watch something with that special somebody. The only real problem with the movie is that the sex scenes could have been a little longer. Watching Samantha is a very well done adult feature that's well written, acted, and fucked through.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Camp Cuddly Pines Powertool Massacre, Between the Sheets, Eternity, Hook Ups 9, All About Keri, and Sold. The photo gallery lasts about three and a half minutes with about seven seconds per very nice looking cropped photo or snapshot as well as two to two and a half minute star galleries for each member of the female cast. Star stats are included for the entire female cast giving you a little personal information, a Wicked Filmography, a photo, and a link to the star's scene. There's also a bonus scene, a behind the scenes featurette, an audio commentary, and the usual Wicked extras.
Michael Raven, Stormy Daniels, Kirsten Price, and Randy Spears team up for an audio commentary, but sadly Kirsten can only stay for about the first thirteen minutes. They have plenty of fun chatting about the sex, each other, feet, and surgeries. There's plenty of chatting about the people in the movie as well as making the movie, and no shortage on the laughs and joking around. This is a very entertaining commentary that's well worth checking out.
All Access: The Making of Watching Samantha lasts a little over twenty minutes and it presented in the full frame format. Stormy starts it out posing for stills before shooting her scene with Randy. Courtney poses next before she and Lee have a few words with the camera about places they get to fuck. After shooting a bit of the movie, Avena talks about not knowing who she's working with and then poses for stills. Steven also has a few words about about the movie and cast as well as a few words after shooting his scene. There's also a bit of Raven working with the cast to show them what he wants and what he's thinking for the scenes as well as shooting the scenes and showing clips of the finished movie. This is easily one of the worst behind the scenes featurettes I've seen from Wicked. It's mostly just posing for stills, shooting the scenes, and showing the final product rather than showing much of the personality that seems to ooze out around Wicked's people and productions. There's a few good moments here, but I don't know that there's enough to warrant watching the entire featurette. If you do, make sure you keep the remote handy.
|Bonus Scene - Stormy Daniels and Barrett Blade|
The bonus scene comes from Neighbors and is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. Stormy starts out ringing the doorbell at Barrett's place before he comes out and kisses her hard. He takes her inside where they continue to kiss and where he works his way into her shirt to kiss her big fat titties before playing with her pussy while kissing her neck from behind. Stormy lets Barrett slap her ass a couple times before dropping down to suck his cock, and then bends over the counter for him to take her from behind. Stormy also lays back on the counter for Barrett to fuck her missionary style before he strokes himself onto her stomach.
This is a pretty average scene. I really love the passionate opening, but the overly loud music really interfered with the scene and it had a feeling like it was more concerned with being pretty and showing the kitchen surroundings than capturing the sex. It's too bad, as Stormy and Barrett looked to have nice chemistry together. This scene just didn't work for me.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, swallowing, rimming (male > female), and titty fucking
Raincoat Factor: Medium
Condom Usage: 100%
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Wicked's DVDs can be found online for between about $15 and $25 with a few stores offering them at the low end. This one might be worth it at the low end. The movie's very well done, but the technical aspects lack slightly due to the non-anamorphic presentation. The extras are also okay, and sadly don't add much to a movie that deserves more. This is a good release, but the overall DVD could have used a little more care.
Note to Wicked Pictures: I hope you've dumped the non-anamorphic widescreen presentations by now!
