Boxcover for Masseuse, The (Club Jenna / Vivid)
Masseuse, The (Club Jenna / Vivid) 

Release date: 6/18/2004
Reviewed on: 8/16/2004

Starring: Evan Stone, Jenna Jameson, Frank Gunn, Wendy Divine, Mandy Bright, Savanna Samson, Rachel Rotten, Justin Sterling, Rob Rotten
Studio: Vivid

Directed by: Paul Thomas
Review brief: The Masseuse Dir. Paul Thomas. Duration. 95 mins. (approx) Starring. Jenna Jameson, Justin Sterling, Savanna Samson, Wendy Divine, Evan Stone. Please be aware that this review contains 'spoilers'. The Masseuse, or to be entirely accurate, Jenna Jamson is The Massuese, is a high profile remake of Paul Thomas groundbreaking 1990 feature. It revolves around the relationship between Justin Sterling, a twenty-something virgin with a fondness for porn and tying himself up, and Jameson, a sympathetic masseuse. The two transgress the boundaries of professional etiquette on their first meeting when Jameson, seemingly touched by her clients naivety, agrees to give him a handjob. Sterling, who shows no interest in the obvious attentions of his co-worker, Wendy Divine, is smitten and, on his next visit, prefers to wait for Jameson rather than take up the option of another masseuse. This time the exchange goes even further, as she agrees to remove her top and perform fellatio. She even goes so far as to take his phone number and agree to visit his apartment, albeit for a price.

Boxcover for Maraschino Cherry
Maraschino Cherry 

Release date: 9/30/2003
Reviewed on: 10/22/2003

Starring: Eric Edwards, Annette Haven, Constance Money, Leslie Bovee, Gloria Leonard, Jenny Baxter, Alan Marlow, Michael Gaunt, Clea Carson, Peter Andrews, C.J. Laing, Erica Havens, Wade Nichols, David Savage, Susan McBain, Crystal Sync, Marc Valentine, Nancy Dare, Spalding Gray, Conchita Costello, Loren Michaels, Jenny Lind, Rocky Millstone, Lance Knight
Studio: Video-X-Pix

Directed by: Henry Paris
Review brief: Maraschino Cherry is the final hardcore film directed by Radley Metzger (under his Henry Paris pseudonym) and, as such, is likely to be of considerable interest to porn and cult movie fans alike. However, those expecting something akin to The Opening Of Misty Beethoven are going to be disappointed. Maraschino Cherry, perhaps predictably given its place in the Metzger/Paris filmography, is actually little more than a vignette movie (or, as it would probably have been described at the time, a loop carrier). The movie revolves around Gloria Leonard, mistress of a New York brothel, discussing her business activities with her wide-eyed sister. Around this simple structure sit a variety of erotic encounters ranging from the strictly vanilla to some decidedly edgy dungeon sequences that bring to mind the Women In Prison movies of the period. Like Barbara Broadcast, its predecessor in the Metzger cannon, Maraschino Cherry never really amounts to much despite a few standout moments.

Boxcover for Defiance

Release date: 4/2/2003
Reviewed on: 7/7/2003

Starring: F. J. Lincoln, Jean Jennings
Studio: VCX

Review brief: Defiance (or Defiance of Good) is a dark, relatively unknown, horror-tinged movie from 1974. The central character is Cathy (Jean Jennings), a teenage girl who, after being discovered with drugs, is sent by her parents for psychiatric observation. However, the hospital she attends is a hellhole where she is harassed and raped by her fellow inmates so, when the opportunity to move to another clinic presents itself, she jumps at it. Unfortunately she soon comes to realise that her new doctor, played by a very hirsute Fred Lincoln, is actually closer to a brutal cult leader than a traditional medical practitioner. The film has quite a dark tone and (arguably) some philosophical under-currents but its neither as shocking as Through The Looking Glass or as thought-provoking as The Devil In Miss Jones. Defiance covers some rich narrative ground - bringing to mind One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, The Story of O and the Manson Family but never quite manages to be as interesting as it should be. There are a couple of nice directorial flourishes but somehow its all rather pedestrian.

Boxcover for Nothing To Hide (NuTech)
Nothing To Hide (NuTech) 

Release date: 4/24/2000
Reviewed on: 6/15/2003

Starring: John Leslie, Erica Boyer, Misty Regan, Raven Turner, Holly McCall, Richard Pacheco, Patricia Manning, Aaron Stuart, Anthony Spinelli, Tigr, Eric Stein, Robyn Whitting, Elizabeth Randolph, Richard Dove, Jack Hoffey, Tom Ramar, Roy Phipps, Arianne, Katherine Remy, Ronald Gregg, Nicole Adams
Studio: Cal Vista Classics

Directed by: Anthony Spinelli
Review brief: Although not the best movie of the era, Nothing To Hide may well be the quintessential Golden Age Classic. If youve ever wanted to know what separates the Golden Age movies from contemporary classics then look no further. The movie revolves around the relationship between Jack (John Leslie) and his slow witted/ retarded buddy, Lenny (Richard Pacheco). Jack is a smooth talking ladies man who effortlessly moves from one conquest to the next. Lenny, on the other hand, has no luck with the ladies - despite Jacks constant promises to set him up. However, when Lenny falls for a similarly awkward girl Jack has to face the prospect of life without his buddy. If your exposure to porn is limited to contemporary product either feature or gonzo this is going to be quite a change of pace. Even the narrative driven couples porn of today is a fair distance from movies such as this. For a start the sex scenes are far shorter than would be acceptable today (which, from a story telling perspective at least, is no bad thing).
