Initial Expectations: I havenít seen a lot from Hustler, so Iím still trying to keep an open mind and get a feel for them.
Initial Reaction: Itís surprisingly good and has me looking forward to more from this series!
Who Should Watch It : Fans of natural women and all black sex
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants a longer movie
Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and well balanced, without any dubbing. The video is also nice and normally well lit. Thereís a few areas with some inconsistent lighting, but theyíre few and far between, and a small hazy bar along the left side of the screen. My biggest complaint is there are several places where you can see a camera poking in along one of the edges.
Music: The music has a hip hop feel, and although I donít care for the style of music, it fits the feature very well. Itís normally nicely balanced with the rest of the audio, but isnít always there and is sometimes a bit louder.
Menus: The main menu doesnít have any animation other than a clip showing part of the movie. The chapter menu lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of the scene and a title for the scene.
The Feature: Misty Haze comes back to the city with her friend Nyomi Arman when her brother Mr. Marcus calls her in Paris to tell her thereís problems with their apartment buildings. Somebodyís spreading bad rumors about her and their buildings, and itís getting the cityís attention. Theyíve got to find out whoís spreading the rumors, and deal with both them and the city.
Misty Haze and Nyomi start things out with each other as Julian St. Jox watches. They kiss a little before going over to let Julian join in. Misty lets Julian play with her pussy while Nyomi starts sucking his cock, and then goes down to join her. They line up so Julian can lick Misty while she eats Nyomi, and then goes to fucking each of the girls from behind as they snack on each others snatch. The girls move on to ride Julianís tongue and cock before Nyomi sits on Misty so Misty can suck her nipples while Julian moves back and forth fucking them. He finally finishes things off blasting his black ball butter between their boobies. Itís a hot scene with Misty really impressing me while Nyomi left me a little cold. Misty seemed to be completely into both Julian and Nyomi, and really put her all into the scene, while Nyomi looked a little uncomfortable throughout most of the scene. It still comes out as a better than average scene, but if Nyomi would have shown a little more enjoyment this one would have been hard to beat.
Security guard Jason Zupelo gets an ass chewing from Chloe Black before she moves to more persuasive methods of gathering information. She works her unit over with her mouth and pierced tongue before letting him gobble her gash and fuck it from behind. Chloe takes a little control and fucks him in both cowgirls before finally letting Jason cover her bubble butt in his cock cream. Itís another pretty good scene that has nice chemistry and energy. Both Jason and Chloe are obviously enjoying themselves here, and it wouldnít even surprise me if theyíre off screen partners as well.
Jada and Chloe Black team up to find out what Carmen Jones knows in the next scene (and Iím guessing on all three names here), whether Carmen claims to only like dick or not. Chloe warms up Carmenís pussy orally while Jada feeds her a dildo, and then climbs on Carmenís face while Jada fucks Carmen with the toy. Chloe also breaks out a strap-on to help make Carmen talk and fucks Jada with another toy. As with most lesbian scenes, it ends with the scenes feeling like thereís plenty more to go, which is really disappointing and makes this the worst scene in the feature.
Jada, Carmen Jones, and Nyomi Arman team up to take on Mr. Marcus in the penultimate scene. The all team up to work him over orally, both sucking his cock and nipples, before Marcus starts fucking the girls. He moves through them one by one, but the girls are normally in such a jumble nobody ever feels left out and itís occasionally difficult to tell whoís getting fucked. Carmen even lets Marcus take her in the ass, and he puts some good energy into cornholing her before hosing the girls down as they lay in a line. Thereís so much chemistry between these four people that itís worth renting the movie just for this one scene. This is easily the best scene in the feature, and one of the best foursomes Iíve seen in a long time.
Finally Misty Haze takes on inspector Exzavier Wray to get him to leave them and their buildings alone. Thatís right. In the fantasy land of movies the government leaves you alone after you openly let them fuck you! She drops her top to show Exzavier what he has in store for him before dropping down to her knees to get him warmed up. He returns the favor with a little twat tonguing before fucking Misty in a few of the common positions and giving her a jism baptism. Itís another nicely done scene with nice chemistry and energy. Once again, Misty Haze really impressed me, and I think Iím going to have to find out what else sheís done.
Young & Black 3 is a surprising little gem of a fuck flick. Iíll admit that I was ready to be disappointed, since I normally donít consider black women that attractive and havenít seen many all black scenes that have done much for me. Yes, it sounds stupid of me to even choose to review this one, but I wanted to get that bias out there. Every so often I try to check out something outside my normal tastes, and this was one of those DVDs. After watching Young & Black 3, I think I must have seen some bad black porn in the past. The girls here are cute, especially Misty Haze, nicely natural, and show some great enjoyment for sex. Their enjoyment comes across in almost every scene, with Mr. Marcus taking on four of the girls showing what a guy taking on three girls should look like. The plot isnít much, but itís still a little fun, and Hustler even cared enough to put some decent credits at the end of the feature. Young & Black 3 is one hot fuck flick!
Extras: The photo gallery lasts about two minutes with about six seconds per good looking photo. Thereís also a commercial for Hustler magazine and trailers for most of the series Hustler offers on DVD. Finally, thereís a five minute behind the scenes featurette for Young & Black 2.
The behind the scenes featurette is nicely done. Thereís a nice interview with director Sula Long, as well as a couple of the stars, with all of the cast and crew being nicely identified as the interview starts. Sula Longís sections are nicely done, and show her to be an articulate director who seems to know where she wants to go. The featurette nicely blends the sex scenes with interviews of the stars and Sula Long, and keeps things moving nicely, resulting in a very good featurette for the time it lasts.
Themes: Straight, black, lesbian, group, spanking, toys, and anal
Raincoat Factor: High
Overall: Currently, of the Young & Black series can be found online for between $19 and $25 with most stores offering them for around $20. This isnít too bad of a price for this feature. Itís kinda fun and has a lot of hot sex in it. The transfer is also pretty good, as is the extras (especially if youíre curious about Young & Black 2. If youíre at all curious about this one, give it a rent since a couple of the scenes by themselves are worth the price of renting it.
Note to Hustler: You did a good job here, but at the price youíre charging, I think a lot of people will still be a little disappointed if you keep releasing features this short. It also looks sloppy when you include a behind the scenes featurette for a different feature. Iím not sure if this was intentional as a way to try to get people to check out Young & Black 2 or not, but it looks darn sloppy. Finally, please give Sula something more high profile in the near future. There are too few women porn directors out there, and I donít think sheís going to get the attention she deserves doing features like this. Yes, itís a good feature that deserves some attention, but itís also kind of a niche feature. An inter-racial cast would probably draw in a lot more people, and should get both you and Sula a lot more attention. Sheís got some definite talent behind the camera, so please put it out there where it can be seen better.
Extra Note: Hustler has been kind enough to e-mail me after finding out about this review. The behind the scenes on this DVD was intentionally the behind the scenes from Young & Black 2. The behind the scenes for Young & Black 3 was not done in time for their deadline, and rather than hold up production for it or skip it entirely they decided to include the earlier behind the scenes. Iím told this was a fairly common problem with some of their older DVDs, but one theyíre trying to make a thing of the past. As always, I have to give Hustler credit for contacting me to let me know the full situation rather than ignoring negative things and hoping nobody notices, like many other studios. If only more studios cared enough to put in this kind of extra effort.
