The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. The audio is clear, with only a couple very minor background noises. The balance varies throughout the movie, but that's nothing unusual for a compilation and works well throughout the movie. The video is sadly presented with a non-anamorphic transfer, which is easily the biggest thing holding back this release. Beyond that there's some very nice attention paid to the lighting throughout the movie, giving scenes that are both nicely clear and a bit erotic and romantic. There's also a touch of grain in some scenes, which shouldn't come as a surprise as I think some were shot on film.
Music: As with all compilations, the music varies both in style and balance from scene to scene. That's no different here, but I can say that there's a very nice range of styles to the music and they always fit the scenes very well.
Menus: The main menu blends the boxcover with a clip from the movie for an okay first impression. The chapter menu is sadly generic, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the scene number as well as letting you choose between the main scene and the popshot.
The FeatureMVP Carmen collects ten scenes from lovely brunette Wicked contract girl and CAVR's 2006 MVP award winner Carmen Hart. Each scene nicely gives you the names of everybody involved in the scene as well as where the scene comes from to start out each scene. The performers in each scene and the movie the scenes come from are given at the beginning of each scene, so I don't see why they couldn't have been worked into the chapter menu as well.
|Scene 1 – Carmen Hart and Van Damage|
The movie starts with a scene from Naked Illusions. Carmen, in a little black dress, and Van, in a dark suit, kiss passionately in what looks like it could be a classy hotel suite before she has him head to the couch so she can start undressing him as they kiss a bit more. She works his cock out and strokes it a little as they talk softly before she starts sucking it and giving it some nice throat action. Carmen doesn't waste any time by getting up to slide her shaved slit over his shaft reverse cowgirl style and then lets Van take her doggie style as he mixes in a little oral for her. Van also fucks her missionary style and mixes in a little foot worship before giving her a nice facial that she takes extremely well.
Even if I didn't care for what I've seen from Carmen so far, this scene would easily win me over to her. She's cute as can be and does a great job taking a dick here. She's nicely vocal, but never goes overboard on either the vocals or the energy. There's great chemistry between her and Van, and the classy location also helps the scene out. This is a very enjoyable scene that started this compilation out on a high note.
|Scene 2 – Carmen Hart and Christian XXX|
The second scene comes from Honktonk Girl. Carmen stops opening up Christian's pants as he sits back in a chair just long enough to kiss him before going back to stripping him down and working his cock over orally. She works it over with plenty of great eyes and some nice stroking. Finally, she takes a nice facial from Christian.
I'm not a fan of oral scenes, and I'm very picky about scenes where I can't hear the performers. That said, this was an oral scene where you couldn't hear the performers that worked extremely well for me. Carmen, as usual, looks fantastic, and there's some great chemistry that comes out between her and Christian due to the many great looks and little smiles between them. Carmen helps things out further by taking a very nice facial finish, and the scene doesn't try to drag things out too far. This is one of the best oral scenes I've watched in quite a while.
|Scene 3 – Carmen Hart and Chris Cannon|
Next up is a scene from 1000 Words. Carmen, in a pink and white dress, pushes Chris, in a white shirt and black pants, against a yellow wall in the bathroom to kiss him. She drops down for a moment before deciding he should go first and stands back up to get her pierced pussy licked from below. Chris comes up so she can taste him off her tongue before dropping back down to work on both her holes orally as well as fingering her sweet ass. Carmen sucks his fingers clean before going to work on him. She opens up his shirt and kisses his nipples before kissing her way down to his pants, which of course opens up so she can put her great oral skills to work on his cock. Finally, Chris pops on Carmen's tits and lets her suck him clean.
This is another great oral scene. I love the chemistry between Carmen and Chris, and she brings a very nice feeling of playfulness to the scene. I really like how they both get to work each other over orally rather than just having it limited to the blowjob, and the little bit of anal fingering gave the scene a nice little tease. Finally, I love the colors of the scene and the camera work, as they helped to give the scene a little extra nudge towards uniqueness rather than just going with the typical set. This is a darn hot oral scene.
|Scene 4 – Carmen Hart and Myles Camack|
Next up is a scene from the critically acclaimed Manhunters where Carmen finds herself in a shower with Myles, a rival bounty hunter. They kiss quickly and passionately before she drops down to suck and stroke Myles's cock. Carmen lets Myles take her from behind both in and out of the shower before lying back on a counter for him to take her missionary style. Finally, Carmen drops down and opens wide for Myles to give her an impressive helping of baby batter.
This is an above average scene. Carmen gets into the action very nicely, but the scene feels overly short. A little oral for Carmen would have helped things out a lot, as would have another position rather than two takes on doggie and a little missionary. Carmen and Myles look to be into each other pretty well, but the scene feels short and limited.
|Scene 5 – Carmen Hart and Eric Masterson|
The fifth scene takes things back to Honkytonk Girl. Carmen and Eric start out kissing passionately in jeans, and cowboy hats with Eric in a long sleeved button down shirt and Carmen in a little white shirt. They play around each other a bit before helping each other strip down and Carmen drops down to put her oral skills to work on Eric. He joins her on the kitchen table to play with her pussy as they kiss a bit more before fucking her missionary style. Eric also takes Carmen from behind over the table before she gets down to take a very nice facial finish.
This is a very sexy scene. Of course Carmen looks great, and once again she really seems to bring something extra out of her partners. I love the pace of the scene and how much Carmen and Eric look like they want to please each other before they even start fucking. The camera angles work very well with the lower lighting and the entire scene just plain had a beautiful feeling that made me unable to suppress a smile while watching it. This is yet another great scene.
|Scene 6 – Carmen Hart, Gianna Lynn, and Eric Masterson|
1000 Words returns for another scene, this time letting Carmen team up with Eric and Asian hottie Gianna. Carmen and Gianna start the scene out in bra and panties on the bed kissing and playing with each other a little as Eric snaps photos. It doesn't take long for Carmen to lay back so Gianna can work on her pussy with her tongue and fingers. When Gianna comes up to give Carmen a kiss Eric decides to get in on the action as well, so Gianna moves down to free his cock while he kisses Carmen. The girls team up on his cock orally before Carmen gets in the middle to lick Gianna's pussy while Eric fucks her doggie style. Gianna gets her turn next missionary style as Carmen rubs her pussy, kisses Eric, and even licks Gianna's pussy as it's getting fucked. Finally Eric pulls out and pops on Gianna's stomach before Carmen sucks out the last little bit from his cock and lets Gianna have a taste of it with a nice kiss.
This is another really cool scene. There's great chemistry all around, and I love how the scene moves along. Gianna was one of the main reasons I checked this one out, and she held her own very well against Carmen to turn in a great performance. Although the sex and chemistry is great, the style of the scene is just as good. There's a very cool and classic feel to the scene, but the sex never feels held back like it can in many stylistic scenes. This is a darn hot scene.
|Scene 7 – Carmen Hart, Kirsten Price, and Barrett Blade|
Next up is a scene from Becoming Carmen Hart. Barrett starts out lying back on what looks like a cheap motel bed with Kirsten sucking his cock and teasing him with her tits. Carmen watches them go at it, apparently watching it on TV, and can't resist rubbing her nub as she watches. Barrett trades places to reciprocate on Kirsten before having her ride him cowgirl style. Barrett gets up to fuck Kirsten missionary style before dropping down to take a great facial shortly after Carmen finishes herself off with her fingers.
This might be my least favorite scene in the movie. It's not badly done, but it just didn't work as well for me. After getting all wound up on Carmen having her just as a minor part of this scene was a major letdown for me. Barrett and Kirsten did have nice chemistry and kept things going nicely and with some nice humor, but it was such a switch from the previous scenes that I had a little harder time getting into it. Actually showing Kirsten and Barrett on a TV or giving a shot where you could see all three of them would have also helped the scene by clarifying things a little. This isn't a bad scene, but it just can't keep up with the others here.
|Scene 8 – Carmen Hart, Jenaveve Jolie, and Tommy Gunn|
Mobster's Ball checks in next with well dressed mobsters Carmen and Jenaveve, both of whom are dressed in pinstriped suits and fedoras, letting banker Tommy know who's in charge as he's tied to a chair and gagged. They remove his gag to kiss him and grope his cock a little before Jenaveve drops down to start sucking it. Carmen lets her have Tommy's cock to herself a bit before coming around to suck it while Jenaveve kisses Tommy and strips down. Jenaveve gets a leg up so Tommy and Carmen can give her a little oral love before coming back down to help Carmen blow Tommy as well as getting her tits sucked and titty fucking Tommy. Carmen lets Jenaveve get up for the first fuck reverse cowgirl style as she sucks Tommy's balls and gives him a little extra suck when his cock is offered up again. They let Tommy loose so he can take Carmen from behind standing up as Jenaveve offers up her oral skills from below before they girls lay back so Tommy can fuck his way between them missionary style while playing with the other. Finally Carmen gets down for Tommy to pop in her mouth so she can move over and swap it into Jenaveve's mouth and give her a passionate kiss.
This scene takes the compilation back to the high level it had been running it. Once again there's great chemistry all around as well as a great sense of style. With the attention paid to the location and costumes the scene oozes Brad Armstrong's style at its best, and that style plays into the sense of fun the girls put out. The scene moves along nicely with a great balance between the girls as well as a nice pace. This is another extremely enjoyable scene with plenty of heat.
|Scene 9 – Carmen Hart and Brad Armstrong|
The penultimate scene comes from Naked Illusions. As Brad sits back in his chair behind a huge desk, Carmen comes up and kisses him. She opens up his pants with a smile and starts sucking him with plenty of stroking and spit as well as a little throat mixed in. Carmen lays back on Brad's desk for him to fuck her missionary style and even lets him dominantly fuck her face as she hangs her head back off the desk giggling and asking him to gag her. When he sits back in his chair again Carmen rides him reverse cowgirl style before getting off so he can cum on her face.
This is a pretty good scene. It has a much darker feel than the other scenes, which didn't do a lot for me. At the same time, I couldn't help but like the scene as it does a great job showing some of Carmen's range. I think my biggest problem with the scene was that it seemed just a little short and could have used another position. This is a pretty good scene, but not quite up to the same level as the others.
|Scene 10 – Carmen Hart and Eric Masterson|
Finally, there's one last look at Becoming Carmen Hart with Eric carrying Carmen, who's looking mighty hot with glasses, in wearing a wedding dress so they can make out in front of a fireplace with boxes all around them. They kiss passionately before Eric moves down to tongue his way around her pussy as their clothes start to disappear. Carmen sucks his cock in return before getting up to grind on him in reverse cowgirl wearing only her veil. They also spoon a bit before Eric launches a nice load over Carmen's stomach.
This is another enjoyable scene. Once again it's a touch on the short side, but the chemistry is great. Carmen looks smoking hot in the wedding dress and glasses and the action is nicely captured. This is a good scene to close the compilation with.
MVP Carmen is a great compilation DVD for anybody who's the least bit curious about Carmen Hart. Very few of the scenes didn't work that well for me, while most of them soared off the charts. I especially liked the pair of scenes coming from Honkytonk Girl and 1000 Words, but this release offers a very nice mix of oral, group, and straight scenes to really let Carmen shine and show some of her range. The compilation is helped out even more by Wicked paying some nice attention to the little things like letting the viewer know where each of the scenes comes from as well as who's in it. To me a compilation should always leave the viewer wanting to see more of a few movies, and doing this Wicked should be able to draw people into several of their other movies. I know it's drawn my interest to a few movies here that I might have easily passed by before after getting a feel for them. MVP Carmen is a very well done compilation that does a great job of showing why a lot more people should be much more familiar with Carmen Hart than they currently are.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Curse Eternal, The Visitors, Camp Cuddly Pines Powertool Massacre, Gossip, Just Like That, and Hook Ups 10. There's also a bonus scene, the Wicked DVD Catalog, commercials, and cumshot recaps.
|Bonus Scene – Carmen Hart, Katsumi, Kirsten Price, Mia Smiles, Chris Cannon, Eric Masterson, Randy Spears, and Tommy Gunn|
The bonus scene comes from Brad Armstrong's FUCK. As Eric, Chris, Randy, and Tommy wait at a table, servants bring women down on platters for them to feat on sexually. They get some kissing out of the way right away so the girls can start sucking cock. The guys move on to fuck them, with Randy taking Carmen, Eric taking Katsumi, Tommy taking Mia, and Chris taking Carmen and fucking them missionary and doggie style. Randy kicks things up a notch with Carmen fucking her ass with a lit candle before they trade partners so Katsumi can get her ass fucked missionary style by Tommy as well as moving off to suck Randy's cock clean when he pulls it out of Kirsten's pussy. They keep moving around so Carmen and Mia can team up on Eric orally while Mia's getting fucked before Mia takes the first facial. Another guy pops in a champagne flute for her to pour into her mouth before Carmen takes a load in and around her mouth laying back off the table. Finally, Randy pops on a tray for Katsumi to lick up and swap to Kirsten.
This is an okay scene. I'm not a big orgy fan and like to know who's fucking who and see position changes. This scene didn't allow much of that and the fast clips around the table never really allowed much heat to build for me. There's some impressive aspects to this scene, and the cast did look to get into it pretty good, but as a whole it just didn't do too much for me.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, rimming (male > female and female > female), feet, oral, anal (finger), ass to mouth, lesbian, group, masturbation, titty fucking, and cum swapping
Raincoat Factor: High
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. If you're a fan of Carmen Hart or even just curious about her this one's well worth the money. The scenes are well done and nicely let you know where they come from. The technical aspects are pretty good, but held back by a non-anamorphic transfer. There is a little effort put into the extras, and you even get a bonus scene with Carmen. This is a very well done compilation release.
Note to Wicked: Thank you for paying attention to the little things in a compilation rather than just seeing how fast you can slap it out on a disc. It is noticed.
