Boxcover for Cowboy Country
Cowboy Country 

Release date: 8/24/2001
Reviewed on: 8/18/2005

Starring: Franco Corelli, Mike Davis, Gunther Keller, Ward Austin, Terry Bunz, Bob Duffy, Ed Horst, Lil' Shadow, Fred Slinger
Studio: Colt

Directed by: Rip Colt
Review brief: Cowboy Country Cast: Mike Davis, Lil' Shadow, Gunther Keller, Franco Corelli, Ed Horst, Bob Duffy, Terry Bunz, Ward Austin, Fred Slinger. Director: Rip Colt Release date: 7/15/01 Length: 92 min. (The cover claims approximately 120 min. I've deducted one-half star for false advertising.) Extras: A brief slide show (entirely box cover art) and a trailer for The Minute Man Series. Audio/visual quality: The cinematography is generally excellent. All scenes but one (Franco Corelli's) are shot on film. They're not as well preserved as some of Colt's workthe print isn't clean in Ed Horst's scene, for example, and the colors are very faded in Bob Duffy's scene. Still, these flaws didn't impede my enjoyment. The audio consists of a variety of music with some sound effects. A good portion of the soundtrack has a Western flavor; the remainder is more generic. Highlights: 1. The Bonus Mike Davis, Lil' Shadow, and Gunther Keller partner up in a vintage loop. Two cowboys are kissing at the stables when the third rides in with their pay.

Boxcover for Naked Muscles
Naked Muscles 

Release date: 2/14/2002
Reviewed on: 7/27/2005

Starring: Thor, Ed Dinakos, Franco Corelli, Carl Hardwick, Billy Herrington, JD Amos
Studio: Colt

Review brief: Naked Muscles Cast: Thor, J.D. Amos, Ed Dinakos, Chet O'Roark, Mark Bradshaw, Billy Herrington, Franco Corelli, Carl Hardwick. Director: Rip Colt Release date: 12/15/01 (box), 2002 (opening statement) Length: 106 min. (Box claims 120 min., which is correct only if it includes the preview running times.) Extras: Previews for Legendary Bodies and The Minute Man Series. Audio/visual quality: As usual, Colt excels at the technical and artistic aspects. This is some of the prettiest stuff around. Most of the footage appears to be fairly recent and shot on video, except for the Ed Dinakos and Mark Bradshaw scenes (very clean film prints). The ratio of full-body and close-up shots is pleasing. There is no location audiothe soundtrack is a playful mix of rock, jazz, and even classical themes. Highlights: Wet Thor is a blond, stoic, massively muscled man with Batman and Tweety Bird butt tattoos. He emerges from the pool in a clingy beige thong, showers, stir fries his dinner, exercises, practices poses, and goes to bed.

Boxcover for Waterbucks
Waterbucks 

Release date: 5/30/2002
Reviewed on: 7/25/2005

Starring: Jake Tanner, Bruce Craig, Ralph Whitaker
Studio: Colt

Review brief: Waterbucks Cast: Mark Bradshaw, Mark Gamble, Bruce Emory, Mario Garza, Steve Keslo, Jake Tanner, Bruce Craig, Ralph Whitaker. Director: Rip Colt Release date: 4/1/02 Length: 96 min. Extras: None except contact and website. Audio/visual quality: As usual, Colt excels at the technical and artistic aspects. This is some of the prettiest stuff around. The Waterbucks compilation is entirely shot on film, which lends a timeless look. (Were these made in the 1980s? The 1990s? Maybe even the late 1970s? I'm not sure, since the prints are usually very well preserved, but there appears to be a mix of eras.) The handheld footage in the final scene jitters a bit and has a more amateur feel, but the rest of the material is extremely polished and professional. The ratio of full-body and close-up shots is pleasing. There is no location audiothe score features gently energetic instrumentals of good quality. Highlights: Sunbeam Mark Bradshaw, all blond and bronzed, peels out of his wet suit to reveal striations in his musculature and wood in his willy.

Boxcover for Best of Colt 7 & 8, The
Best of Colt 7 & 8, The 

Release date: 3/27/2001
Reviewed on: 7/12/2005


Studio: Colt

Review brief: The Best of Colt 7 & 8 Cast: Ledermeister, Erron, Tom, Dick Trask, Dakota, Denny, Mel Bush, Bill Eld, Bruno, Toby. Director: Rip Colt Release date: 1/15/01 (compiled from 1970s films, and 1987 and 1988) Length: 98 min. (box cover claims approximately 120 min., which is an overestimate even if the running time of the bonus material is included) Extras: A slide show (mostly box cover art) and a trailer for The Minute Man Series. Audio/visual quality: These 8mm films display the expected quirks and charms of their age. Good use has been made of attractive settings and natural light. This film format is silent, but sound effects and limited amounts of vocalizations (including a slightly odd, deeply bass voice) have been dubbed. The score is all instrumental and covers quite a range, from eerie to amusing. I like it, but viewers who disagree can easily turn it off and play something different. Highlights (Part 7): 1. Ledermeister Ledermeister The hairy, hunky star of part 7 takes a shower, rides his motorcycle in the buff, and strokes himself on a country road.

Boxcover for Master Strokes
Master Strokes 

Release date: 2/14/2002
Reviewed on: 7/8/2005


Studio: Colt

Review brief: Master Strokes Cast: Vicent [sic] Kulinsky, Caio Garcia, Alex Villaboas, Allan Worth, Carlos Nucci, Gustavo Franco, Walter Soares, Dan Scarpa, Clovis Arnaud, Jaime Ayres, Henry Baynes, and Lucas Canigia (none identified by clip or scene, so I don't know who's who). Director: Max Julien Release date: 12/15/01 (box), 2002 (opening statement) Length: 88 min. Extras: Previews for Legendary Bodies and The Minute Man Series. Audio/visual quality: The videography is competent. The focus is consistently sharp, and the angles are pleasing. Artistic images are intercut at appropriate spots. The nonsex footage in the first scene is black-and-white; all sexual action is in color. The last scene incorporates weird "dropped frame" edits and intentional audio distortion, which does suit the mood. Well-done motion effects lend a more animated aspect to several still images.
