Review brief: "Showdown" is a mid-80s, western-themed production from director Henri Pachard and Caballero that, despite many promising moments, never really follows through strongly enough to be worthwhile.

Review brief: The distinction between reality and fantasy becomes a blur for Alicia Monet, as her work as a scriptwriter uncovers a real-life 1930s murder mystery in “Once Upon a Temptress”. A classic adult film from Caballero and Henri Pachard, this sexy little fuck-flick features Monet as a writer who’s been tasked with producing a script for a film about the lecherous grandfather of her former flame, producer John Leslie.

Studio: VCX

Directed by: Henri Pachard
Review brief: I've watched a fair number of "classics" and most of them suck. This one's actually pretty good. It attempts to be a little better than the average porno without turning into a pretentous piece of shit. The original film was quality and the DVD transfer is done well. Best of all you get some stars when they were young and smoking, like Sharon Mitchell and Joanna Storm. I don't know why I've never heard of this one beforeif you like films from that era (about 1983), it's definitely worth a look.

Directed by: Henri Pachard
Review brief: Overview Henri Pachard has mad some classic stuff, Budding of Brie, Jailhouse Girls, etc, etc. So does this slice of Golden Age pie taste sweet, or sour ? What I Liked Kinda cool seeing old faves like Rachel Ashley, Taija Rae, and Sharon Mitchell in their prime suckin' and fuckin'. As a lover of full bush ( yum ) , gotta say I dug full coochie rug look sported here. What I Disliked Well, the whole plot of mayhem ensuing on the day of a wedding rehersal, with new wave band guests appearing, and the groom disappearing was just way too silly. The sex was pretty tame, and quick. Anal ? Not here . Facials and big loads period, nah uh. So we have a bizarre plot, weak ass sex. Shit. DVD Quality Transfer of an oldie, you'd figure its not quite modern quality, and you'd be correct. Not grainy and splotchy though, just ok. Extras ? Ha ha ha. Overall Thoughts Not the best golden age flick, no, not by a long ass mile.

Review brief: Prologue Legendary director Henri Pachard has teamed up with Tall Goddess to bring a themed video that I've always found appealing. Women taking control of their pleasure and using men to facilitate it. No grinning and bearing it here. The cast has a couple of my favorites, Mika Tan and Nicki Hunter. World class beauty Jenavieve Jolie is on hand and veterans Alexis Amore, Brittney Skye, Shy Love and Felix Vicious round out the cast. No ingenues here and all of them should have some idea as to how they like it. As for me, if the ladies enjoy themselves, I'm good. Kris Slater is furious. He calls in his underling Mika Tan to ream her out about some mistakes she made on a document. He's spewing venom. Mika's just sitting quietly taking notes. She starts to zone him out and starts daydreaming. Her pen is bobbing into her mouth like a little phallus and her thighs start to rub together. Mika's clearly horny.

Review brief: Introduction: This is the first in a new line of videos from Venus Girls Productions. The premise -- sexually aggressive women using men as fuck-toys -- is novel and intriguing. The movie was co-directed by Tall Goddess, a neophyte, and Henri Pachard, an old hand. Packaging: The box cover is classy looking, with a nice design for the title, beautiful photography and visual composition, and clearly and prominently displayed cast credits. The back cover offers a nice mix of symmetrically arranged screen shots from the movie. Scene One: Mika Tan and Kris Slater The set-up is that Mika is Kris's employee and he calls her in to chew her out for her less-than-stellar work. You can tell he's an asshole, but Mika seems to have a bit of a crush on him anyway. Mika is dressed in a formal business suit and is wearing black-rimmed glasses. While Kris is yammering away, Mika begins to tease the tip of her pen with her lips and tongue in a very sexy way. Then she drifts off into a fantasy in which she takes charge of him sexually.

Review brief: What I Liked Other reviews captured in better detail the scene by scene details, I will attempt here to describe the overall feel/effect the movie had on a couple's ( mr and mrs barrettman !) viewing experience. The concept of women initiating and controlling the mood and action of a porn film was most unique and enjoyable to see. The outfits of various styles of lingerie worn by the women in each scene was a nice touch. The scenarios/set-ups seemed plausible , not too cheezy or contrived, mrs. b-man especially enjoyed this aspect.The carnality/heat in the scenes was helped along by the concept of women verbally/physically demonstrating their control, needs, and pleasure during the encounters. What I Disliked mmm, not too much really. perhaps future editions could find more " natural" actresses ( mrs B HATES obvious implants ). some future scenarios where the women ask/demand and receive pleasuring by men, ex. feet/body massages leading into frenzied sex. DVD Quality pretty good, the picture wasnt too dark ( thank God, some releases obscure the action w/dark effect,grr).

Review brief: The Little Details Running Time: 101 min. Production Date: 5 / 4 / 2005, 7 / 22 / 2005 Director: Tall Goddess and Henri Pachard Cast: Shy Love, Jenaveve Jolie. Brittany Skye, Felix Vicious, Mika Tan, Alexis Amore, Nikki Hunter, Kris Slater, James Deen, Seth Dickens, and Nic Lanchey The Short Story Initial Expectations: I havent seen anything from the Venus girls, but I love the idea behind this one. Im going into this one with some expectations. Initial Reaction: Theres a few minor editing and audio problems, but the movie is nicely done and shows some great potential. Who Should Watch It : Couples and anybody who wants porn with the women in control Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting the typical porn The Technical Stuff Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are above average but have a few problems. The audio is very well balanced, but it doesnt quite synch with the video late in the first scene and it has a bit of a hiss in the background during the final scene. The video is pretty well done.

Review brief: Women on Top of Men Studio: Venus Girls Productions Directors: Tall Goddess & Henri Pachard Year: 2005 Feature Time: 1:41:24 Extras: Behind the Scenes and Trailers (0:24:37) Starring: Shy Love Jenaveve Jolie Brittney Skye Felix Vicious Mika Tan Alexis Amore Nicki Hunter Themes: Female Domination So many movies have been released focusing on guys dominating women. Only a few that I have seen have done the opposite, with the females in charge. This one "Women on Top of Men" purports to flip the usual script and have the female cast members sexually dominate their male partners. I must admit that this is not a fetish that does a whole lot for me, but the film is more like a female-centric gonzo movie rather than anything resembling rough domination. Scene 1: Mika Tan and a guy Mika plays a secretary whose stressed-out boss is very mad at the poor job she's done in preparing some documents. Soon she starts to daydream while he yells at her. Mika looks sexy in a business suit, exposing her breasts and having her boss suck on them.

Review brief: Title: Hot House Rose 1 Company: VCA (LFP, Inc.) Length: 77 minutes VHS Release: December 1991 DVD Release: August 2005 Condoms: None Director: Henri Pachard Director of Photography: Alex DeRenzy Written by: Raven Touchstone BOXCOVER SYNOPSIS: Liz Harris is more than just a fan of porn superstar Hothouse Rose. She's obsessed. In her private life, Liz stalks the bars for men to help her re-enact Rose's wildest scenes-and finds plenty of willing participants. But that's not enough to satisfy Liz's desire, which can only be fully quenched by taking on Hothouse Rose herself in a climax that will leave you in complete suspense...until Part Two. THE MOVIE: From what little information I had going into this one, I was expecting All About Eve (1950). Instead, I got something closer to Desperately Seeking Susan (1985).

Review brief: Cast: Veronica Hart, Juliet Anderson, Marlene Willoughby, Merle Michaels, Jody Maxwell, Samantha Fox, John Leslie, Richard Bolla, Bobby Astyr, Ron Hudd and Joey Silvera and in sex roles; Jolet Kodet, Candida Royalle, Erica Eaton, Elyse Alexander, Cami Graham, Josh Andrews, Al Greenbach, Henri Pachard and several others in nonsex roles. Director and writer: Henri Pachard Production date: ©1981 Length: 83 min. Extras: A slide show with 20 stills and a catalog list of classic VCA titles. Audio/visual quality: The quality of print is excellent, with a minimum of speckles and other defects. The lighting tends to be a bit low, but in a way that's flattering to the performers. The mix of camera angles is good. Shadows partially obscure some of the action, though not to the point that it bothers me. The penetration footage is briefer and generally less explicit than is common nowadays; it holds up well, however, when compared to other movies of the day. Two of the five scenes contain sex sounds only.

Sexcapades (VCA) 

Release date: 4/25/2000
Reviewed on: 12/29/2002 by lindi

Starring: Sharon Kane, Mai Lin, Sharon Mitchell, Joanna Storm, Tiffany Clark, Lee Caroll, Eric Edwards
Studio: VCA

Directed by: Henri Pachard
Review brief: Synopsis This 1983 Henri Pachard classic is a wholesome romp. Raincoaters can pass it by unless they are just in the mood for a little fun. The quirky humor, goofy music, and nostalgic feel of Sexcapades may please people who enjoy the feel of Pink Panther movies. The plot involves a director attempting to make a porn film. Scene 1 Joanna Storm and Alan Adrian perform a fumbling audition for two bored porn producers. Her earnest but misdirected enthusiasm is a real hoot. At one point she stops the sex to put socks under her knees to prevent rug-burn. Peter Meter = zero Scene 2 Sharon Mitchell plays a sexually clueless wife in a fluffy, unsexy nightie. Her alternately prudish and giggling responses to husband Eric Edwards will leave you feeling smug. She throws in a few moans for his inexpert cunnilingus. Peter Meter = zero Scene 3 Cartoonish music accompanies this goofy sex scene between Ashley Wells and Michael Bruce.

Review brief: Running Time: 93 min. Production Date: 4 / 2002 Director: Henri Pachard Cast: Julie Meadows, Chantz Fortune, Ruby, Alana Evans, Becca Bratt, Alex Foxe, Joel Lawrence, Steve Hatcher, Steven St. Croix, Tony Tedeschi, Tommy Wanna, Rod Fontana, and Chris Evans in sexual roles and Vic Alpine, Marc, and Henri Pachard in a non-sex role Initial Expectations: Ive always liked Julie Meadows, and always look forward to her movies. Initial Reaction: Its not anything extremely special, but does have some nice and fun touches that raise it above a lot of the other stuff out there. Who Should Watch It : Anybody looking for something with a touch of humor and without the nastiness Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants something a lot different from the average porno Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and well balanced, without any signs of background noise. The only problem is that its a bit on the low side so I had to crank up the volume to hear much of it. The video is also clear, and barely shows any sign of grain.

Who Should Watch It : Fans of classic porn, real women, and fun sex Who Should Avoid It: Fans of more extreme sex Audio /Video Quality: For being twenty years old, Outlaw Ladies looks and sounds very good. The audio is normally clear and well balanced, although there are a few minor problems in a few places.

Review brief: DMJ II goes beyond the colorfully erotic and enters the realm of exquisite filmmaking. What a wonderful movie funny, romantic, clever yes, Im talking about a porno here. Plot, sex, acting, scenery DMJ II succeeds on all counts. In how many movies do you get to watch Mary Antoinette and Cleopatra suck off the Devils Advocate? Or Cyrano de Bergerac give Georgina Spelvin the first orgasm in hell with his nose?The film opens with an erotic yet humorous seduction. Georgina Spelvin (Justine Jones), ever the siren, crawls toward Cyrano (whose nose is conveniently shaped like a penis) begging to mount him. As she writhes her way to ultimate pleasure Hells orgasm alert starts blaring (the no orgasm in hell rule has just been officiated.) Miss Jones is pulled off Cyranos face and dragged through the erotic bowels of Hell to meet with the man himself, Satan.
