Boxcover for Hard Gore
Hard Gore 

Release date: 2/20/2006
Reviewed on: 10/19/2015 by flash

Starring: John Seeman, Turk Lyon, Joan Devlon, Dianne Galke, Justina Lynn, David Book, Toni Scott
Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Directed by: Michael Hugo
Review brief: Hardgore is an extremely bizarre film that attempts to mix horror, gore, and hardcore sex and isn't very successful at any of these tasks. The film looks cheap, rushed, and often makes absolutely no sense, alienating any viewer that attempts to watch and comprehend it. This is not a film I can recommend to anyone. Alpha Blue Archives has an acceptable print for those willing to give the film a chance.

Review brief: A young, aristocratic woman, played by Terri Hall, falls headfirst into Jamie Gillis' dark and ultimately deadly web when she has a chance encounter with the harsh, unfeeling millionaire one fateful evening. Indeed, from the moment of their initial meeting at an establishment of fine-dining, Hall finds herself entranced and enveloped by Gillis' austere and mysterious demeanor, and the dark, sinuous path upon which the two set forth turns not only sinisterly sexual but dangerously controlling, as well. How it all will turn out for the pair is anybody's guess, but the outcome certainly looks best. Such is the case in "The Story of Joanna", an acclaimed Golden Age release from director Gerard Damiano and the Alpha Blue Archives.

Review brief: Sex Wish is a gritty, and at times disturbing, adult take on Death Wish which fails at being erotic however works as an adult feature film. The poor picture quality of this disc hinders the release and makes the Cal Vista / VCX release of the film the one to look for instead.

Starring: Jamie Gillis, Turk Lyon, Jeffrey Hurst, Georgette Jennings
Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Directed by: Sam Bloch
Review brief: Saturday Night Special is a bad film all the way around which makes it hard to figure out who might want to watch or own it. This release from Alpha Blue Archives is in rather poor shape as well, if you are interested in the film, seek out the Cal Vista/VCX release.

Boxcover for Young Marrieds, The
Young Marrieds, The 

Release date: 7/1/2014
Reviewed on: 8/5/2014 by flash

Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Directed by: Ed Wood
Review brief: The Young Marrieds collection from Alpha Blue Archives, fully titled The Young Marrieds Plus the Lost Films of Alice Friedland Five-Film Collection, brings Ed Wood's believed to be lost film The Young Marrieds along with the films Kiss My Analyst, Analyze Your Sex, and The Adventures of Flash Beaver. Discerning readers will note the list only includes four films, not five as the full box title states. The obvious highlight of the collection for many interested people will be the only hardcore film on the release The Young Marrieds, being one of Ed Wood's lost films, which honestly is a rather disappointing feature. Analyze My Sex is honestly not worth watching by anyone for any reason. Kiss My Analyst was not an awful but has a sub-par transfer. The Adventures of Flash Beaver was an awful film with a transfer that was not of watchable quality.

Review brief: Alpha Blue Archives' XXX Spy Sex-O-Rama collects three titles from the early 70s, all with a spy theme, Agent 69, The California Connection, and Jane Bond. Two of the films, Agent 69 and Jane Bond, aren't really worth watching at all. The third, The California Connection, is an enjoyable film that is well worth watching. However the film is incomplete on this release. Alpha Blue Archives poor quality masters make this release not worth watching.

Review brief: A collection of old stag reels from the late 60s and 70s featuring busty models in posing and simulated masturbation. Video quality varies from mediocre to nearly unwatchable. The sound is entirely a music track of obscure 60s psychadelic rock. None of the models are credited so who knows who's in it. Worthwhile only if you have a fetish for this kind of video.

Busty and Wet By Herself 2 

Release date: 12/22/2010
Reviewed on: 7/4/2011 by jayo

Starring: Mona, Keli Stewart, Uschi Digard, Angel Cash, Mary Waters, Jaki
Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Review brief: A collection of video centerfolds, mostly R-rated by modern standards, of some classic busty models from the Golden Age era. Typical Alpha Blue Archives low-effort production. If you really want to see Keli Stewart or Mary Waters moving around instead of in stills, it's good stuff. But if you want something more than just a video posing guide, keep your magazines or photosets and look elsewhere.

Boxcover for Big Tit Super Stars Of The 80's: Lotta Topp Collection
Big Tit Super Stars Of The 80's: Lotta Topp Collection 

Release date: 5/10/2006
Reviewed on: 12/5/2010 by jayo

Starring: Lotta Topp
Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Review brief: Lotta Topp is an obscurity, but should have been a star: she was rather pretty (I think she looks a little like Trinity Lauren), she has big breasts and a huge clit. And she did hardcore. This DVD is a collection of her clips from various films you probably never saw. Sex varies from straight MF to dildo masturbation and a little light lesbian. Video quality is fair, sound quality varies from acceptable to atrocious. No extras. Almost any question about this DVD could be answered by "because they couldn't do less." Worth getting if you're a Lotta Topp fan because there's almost nothing else. But only for that reason.

Review brief: Jeanne Silver, a pretty amputee, appeared in men’s magazines and on San Francisco burlesque stages. She had the lower part of her left leg removed when she was a child. The remaining stump, extending several inches below her knee, is little more than bone covered with flesh. Director Alex DeRenzy uses the pseudo-documentary format to display Silver’s sexual habits. She fucks Amber Hunt during a threesome, impales two teenage students and even goes so far as to ram it up a homosexual’s ass.

Review brief: One of the truely superior porn actresses from the classic era in a collection of film loops. "Straight" sex (relative to the standards of the adult film industry) never looked so erotic and enjoyable.

Review brief: A collection of lesbian scenes from 1980s-era porn. The sex is standard, stylized, fakey FF stuff. The actresses are generally attractive, but the video and audio quality are very uneven, often terrible. It's good if you want to see a particular obscure actress, but pass it by otherwise.

Review brief: Alpha Blue Archives has given this very obscure racially themed roughie much better treatment than one would expect from the company.

Review brief: A superb classic in its uncut format, but we get only a mere shadow of the original in this censored re-release.

Bridgette Maier Triple Feature 

Release date: 5/23/2007
Reviewed on: 4/2/2008 by classix-comment

Starring: Brigitte Maier
Studio: Alpha Blue Archives

Review brief: Tongue, the most "important" film on this disc happens to be the first. Tongue is definitely not your run of the mill LA triple-Xer. Even from its opening minutes its clear its director, credited only as "K.P.," is not the average smut maker and his/her film isn't going to be the average smut film. In fact, there is no real sex for the first 25 minutes.

Review brief: Roberta Findlay was one of a few female directors who worked on hardcore films. Although her films are nothing exceptional, her unique style and passion for violence make her films unique in the annals of 70s hardcore.

Review brief: While not interesting cinematicly, these early works by by future cult director Howard Ziehm are crucial viewing as examples of some of the earliest narrative hardcore cinema.

Review brief: Peter Balakoff (aka Ted Roter) was one of many former exploitation film directors turned hardcore film directors to make ends meat. Some did well while others floundered. Roter is somewhere in the middle. Although his films are frequently poorly shot and feature less than pleasing production values, he makes up for these minor faults through his surprisingly smart scripts and above average acting from his cast of relative unknowns. Here we have two of his least seen films, Hollywood She-Wolves and Paul, Lisa, And Caroline. Although She Wolves is nothing more than a run of the mill porn, PLC is a surprisingly insightful look at a menage-a-trois lifestyle. Roter's stock actress Gena Lee is Caroline, just married to Paul (played handsomely by director Roter) who decide to engage in swinging with Paul's sometimes fling Lisa. Roter creates strong, realistic characters with real problems which are handled with maturity and class. Gena Lee gives another wonderful performance proving that she certainly was one of the finest thespians in the whole of the industry during the late 70s.

Review brief: This will be the first of my reviews of the "Cult 70s Porno Directors" series from ABA. This collection of three films by true schlock filmmaker Ray Dennis Steckler is a truly awful grouping of terrible films. They're pretty much all the same film in that none of them has a plot and for some reason all involve roller skates. Go figure. Steckler, who also made horror themed porn under the moniker Sven Christian, was never looked at as even a good director outside of the hardcore industry and thus the reduction of his already miniscule budgets and the inclusion of hardcore sex into his films makes them even more tedious as entertainment. I suppose the sex scenes could be described as "erotic" but that would have to be from a very jaded perspective. There is a lot of sex though if that makes this package any more enticing. Overall the films are of OK AV quality. All from VHS tapes with Indian Lady faring best, but all being watchable enough to be able to make out the "action." All also appear to be uncut (though I couldn't image such crap being cut anyway).

Review brief: Alex DeRenzy produced more than a few good films during the 1970s but he also produced more than a few awful ones. This one falls into the second category. Simply a dumb way to make money off a gimmick. Long Jeanne Silver was a New York runaway who made her acting debut in Shaun Costello's Waterpower in 1976. She then came to San Francisco landing on The Mitchell Brother's doorstep. The Mitchells picked her up and put her in live sex shows. Soon washed up, DeRenzy decided to use her in one of his hardcore quickies and shot a standard vignette film with her peculiarity as the centerpiece. Now for those of you who don't know where Long Jeanne got her name, well...She doesn't have one of her legs (yes, you read that right) and uses the stump the same way gay boys use their arms! So Long Jeanne Silver (the film) is just that, consisting of scene after scene of Long Jeanne sticking her long john in lots of girls (and even one boy in by far the film's funniest scene).

Review brief: Tis a shame that great film like this are treated like dirt by the companies that release them. Gerard Damiano's powerful and majestically shot masterpiece inspired by the great French Novel "The Story Of O" is one of the finest hardcore films EVER made by one of the genre's finest directors. Jamie Gillis is Jason, a wealthy socialite who discovers he is dying of a rare (although unnamed) desease. He thus "adopts" a young woman, Joanna (Teri Hall) to keep him company during his final days. She however is unaware of his ailments. Their relationship quickly turns from one of short term lovers to a violent bondage filled endurance test for poor Joanna who is tormented in just about every way possible. Slowly, as their profane relationship continues to develop, Jason becomes weaker and weaker due to his mysterious ailment while Joanna grows stronger and stronger through her torments... Damiano's great strengths as a director are present in every aspect of this masterpiece.

Review brief: Terri Joanna Jamie Jason Zebedy Griffin Juliet Gina "The Story of Joanna" from 1975 has the most highly developed storyline of any porn film I have seen. I don't want to give to much of it away, but it involves Jamie Gillis being a millionaire who picks up this woman and sets about degrading her for a special purpose he has for her later in the movie. The degredation of her though is very central to the plot of the movie and after what I had read of how this was one of the rougher movies of the 70's I was surprised by how tame it was. The acting in this movie is top notch, I have not seen a porn film with acting equal to this one. The music is excellent and the sets are beautiful. The audio and video on the dvd for this movie are not that good though, about equal to some of the classics VCX puts out on dvd.
