Studio: Private

Directed by: Pierre Woodman
Review brief: A porn version of the mainstream movie Sin City. Storywise it's quite faithful to the original film, but this one's got has a lot of porny sex in it. Unfortunately it's also got a lot of dialogue and acting that are bad even for porn. Using a mix of color and black and white, it's visually innovative for porn, but in terms of sexual content it's still very much a by-the-numbers Private production (with a lot of focus on anal sex). Since the three parts together are almost nine hours it's a clear case of quantity over quality.

Debbie Loves Dallas 

Release date: 8/7/2007
Reviewed on: 10/25/2007

Starring: Mary Jane, Cassidey, Monique Alexander, James Deen, Justin Syder, Tommy Pistol, Alex Gonz, Charlotte Stokely, Julius Ceazher, Pixie Pearl, Dana DeArmond, Icarus Corpse, Melodie Gore, Stoya
Studio: Vivid Alt

Directed by: Eon McKai
Review brief: A remake of Debbie does Dallas that's really not a remake; instead of being about cheerleaders it's about groupies and instead of taking place in Dallas there's a band called Dallas. What this means is that in this movie the girls quite literally get to do Dallas. It features decent sex of the alt variety, and looks good in terms of style, but the story parts of it unfortunately suffer from misplaced attempts at irony and off-kilter dialogue that's supposed to be funny but really is just a pain to sit through.

Studio: Sex Z Pictures

Directed by: Eli Cross
Review brief: Another epic production by Eli Cross; different from Corruption, but equally fine. It features a series of long and intense sex scenes, varied both in content and style, all embedded in an ably told sci-fi story about a disillusioned security agent (Eva Angelina) that hooks up with a hacker (Hillary Scott) and aids her in the upload of the mysterious Enigma file.

Studio: Wicked

Directed by: Skye Blue
Review brief: This is the first film in a new collaboration between Playgirl TV and Wicked Pictures. The plan is to release one film a month and the content is what might perhaps be called medium-core, quite soft but still with some genitalia here and there. What we get in this release is nine short vignettes, all of them in an erotic-fantasy style, some of them quite dreamy, a few a bit more realistic. What I Liked The actors look good! Not only is the photo flattering to them, but the women are just beautiful and its so nice to have a movie that steers clear both of the silicone blonde look of all too many features and the teen look of all too many gonzos. The men are all muscular and reasonably young (its such a relief to have none of the pot-bellied, middle-aged men fucking girls young enough to be their daughters). The camera angles are often different from what you get in mainstream porn, which is something I found refreshing, and there is a lot of play with light and shadows, which adds to the eroticism in many of the scenes.

House of Ass (Adam & Eve) 

Release date: 2/15/2006
Reviewed on: 3/23/2006

Starring: Mr. Marcus, Talon, Sarah Blake, Scott Nails, Justine Joli, Keeani Lei, Saana, Joanna Angel
Studio: Adam & Eve

Directed by: Tristan Taormino
Review brief: The Circumstances A couple of years ago Tristan Taormino did a couple of anal sex instruction videos together with John Stagliano; one thing that stood out in them was how good Tristan was at coaching people, making them relaxed and playful with the result that the sex scenes in these videos were surprisingly good. Now shes back and the premise is simple: put a bunch of porn stars together in a house for a few days and see what happens. Quite a lot, as it turns out. Two of them, the real-life couple Justin and Jezebelle, are having problems in their relationship and leaves prematurely, possibly breaking up. Talon and Saana are brought in as reinforcements, but only arrive in time for the final scene. In the meantime, the others have been chatting about sex and, above all, having it. The Sex There are five main sex scenes. One gets the feeling that there was more sex going on, but these five are still more than enough. The first one is between Joanna Angel and Scott Nails in the bathroom.

Story Of J, The 

Release date: 12/11/2008
Reviewed on: 2/1/2006

Starring: Eric Masterson, Justine, Jaqueline, Jassie, Mick Blue, Jana Cova, Ben English, Jesse Jane, Jelena Jensen
Studio: Digital Playground

Directed by: Celeste
Review brief: Jesse Jane is the main character in this version of Pauline Réages Story of O. She is handed over by her boyfriend to a school of sexual training where she is subjected to some light bondage and eventually finds a sense of power by achieving insight into her own sexuality. Or something like that. Although there is a story in this picture, it mostly lies in the background. There are no natural sounds so it sort of plays like a silent picture, which is an interesting idea since this means that you get a story that provides a context for the sex without the bad acting that usually plagues adult features. The choice of Jesse Jane for the lead role is perfect since she has a very dramatic face and can act quite expressively without having to say anything. The Sex This is a Celeste film and that means that the sex is often in slow-motion and that it has somewhat of a ritualistic feel to it. Although there is some bondage and some hints that (storywise) the sex might not always be consensual, things never get rough and compared to the Story of O, it is actually rather light-hearted.
