(Latin Lover) in sexual roles and Tina Tyler in a non-sex instructor role with T. J. Hart and Anders Manga also appearing in non-sex roles behind the cameras Initial Expectations: Ive been impressed with everything Ive seen from Pandora Bazaar. I have no reason to expect anything different here. Initial Reaction: Its completely different from what I expected, and thats not a bad thing here! Who Should Watch It : Anybody curious about getting into the adult industry Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting your typical porno. Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and well balanced. There are a few spots where it echoes slightly due to the set, but thats about it for problems. The video has a few minor blemishes, such as a couple remnants and broken images. Other than that, the video looks very nice.

Studio: Pandora

Directed by: Anders Manga
Review brief: Running Time: 74 min. Production Date: 10 / 05 / 2002 Director: Anders Manga Cast: Julie Robbins, Victoria Givens, Brooke Ballentine, Brandy Clark, Bill Tyler, Skye Oxford, Duane Vein, Nick Justice, and Sam Sharp Initial Expectations: Anders Manga and Pandora have impressed me with every one of their features so far. Ive been told this one is a little different, but I still cant help but go in with high hopes. Initial Reaction: Its one of the few pornos Ive watched that afterwards I wasnt sure what I thought. Its very artistic, very dark, and yet also pretty hot. Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes extremely artistic porn and dark movies Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting happy, bright, fun porn Audio /Video Quality: In their first few releases, Pandora had a few problems with their technical aspects. Thankfully most of those problems seem to be a thing of the past. The audio is clear and well balanced for the most part, although there is a bit of grain in some parts.

Studio: Pandora

Directed by: Anders Manga
Review brief: Cast: Julie Robbins, Victoria Givens, Brooke Ballentine, Brandy Clark, Skye Oxford, Sam Sharpe, Nick Justice and Duane Vein in sex roles; Bill Tyler in a non-sex role. Director and writer: Anders Manga Production date: 10/5/02 Length: 73 min. Extras: Interviews with Victoria (9 min.), Brooke (7 min.) and Julie (4 min.); 4 min. of outtakes; a 4-min. music video; and trailers for the feature and Girl Show 2. Audio/visual quality: The technical aspects of this disc are very good. The camerawork is competent, and Manga's characteristic editing stylewhich includes scattered jump cuts, monochrome and masksis fun to watch. Because of the relatively low lighting, shadows and grain are present in some scenes. A crewmember's shoe is briefly visible at one point, but I haven't spotted any other potential distractions. The soundtrack is original. As I've come to expect from this director, the music's eclectic range of styles supports the different types of scenes. Other than an occasional bump against the microphone, there are essentially no audio flaws.

Review brief: Cast: Lolita LeMarchand, Darian Caine, Tara Indiana, Mariah, Mistress Charlize, Inga. Director: Lunar Eclipse (aka Tina Tyler) Writers: Anders Manga and Tina Tyler Production date: 1/25/02 (box); 1/27/02 (opening statement) Length: 68 min. Extras: Trailers for the feature and three additional titles. Audio/visual quality: It's a little disconcerting to see so many artifacts in the opening slides, but they vanish the instant the movie begins. On the whole, the visual quality of Affliction is strong and appealing. The lighting is appropriately spartanthe stark ambiance perfectly matches the "personality" of the movie. There are minor issues with shadows and soft focus shifts, but the mix of camera angles is extremely pleasing. (Because of the unfortunate legal issues that plague the BDSM genre, no vaginal penetration is ever directly shown. But Affliction does contain explicit footage of oral penetrationwith a dildoin conjunction with bondage.) The music is limited to a haunting instrumental theme at the beginning and end.

Review brief: Expectations After reading YogaGrrl's and astroknight's reviews of this disc, I am extremely intrigued. The danger here is that, now I have high expectations of this disc. My hopes are that it can meet them. Capsule Review Well, it surely is not what I expected. Perhaps if you sit down to watch this one as an art film, with no intention of getting yourself off, it might be a real jewel. But it comes up lacking as a porno film. Technical I am really quite amazed, but this newbie company has put out one hell of a technically sound DVD. The lighting, camera work, audio and mastering are all very good. And so are the menus! Director Anders Manga Extras Behind the scenes, bonus footage, music video, interviews, diary Target Audience Female masturbation fans, including women Scene Review Scene 1 - Kylie Ireland Kylie sits down to watch some late night TV alone. She is clothed in elegant lacey lingerie. She watches in a dark room with the flicker of the TV illuminating her. The program is an erotic B&W affair made to look like and old movie.

Review brief: Running Time: 91 min. Production Date: 7 / 2 / 2002 Director: Anders Manga Cast: Tina Tyler, Keri Windsor, Logan LaBrent, Kylie Ireland, Nikki Steele, August, Kylie Kurves, Victoria Givens and Serena Initial Expectations: I really enjoyed the original Girl Show, and with the comments from YogaGrrl on the cover Im even more interested here! Initial Reaction: Once again, Pandora Bazaar shows that theyre a studio to keep a close eye on. This is a great DVD! Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes artistic porn and female masturbation Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants a plot and thinks some of the best porn is done by leaving the camera on a tripod while the cameraman leaves the room, and then considers it the finished product Audio /Video Quality: The audio is clear and nicely varies a bit for artistic effect. There were a couple times I thought I heard a background noise or comment, but they were so short and the movies artistic enough that I thought it might have been intentional.

Review brief: Cast: Tina Tyler, Keri Windsor, Logan LaBrent, Kylie Ireland, Nikki Steele, August, Kylie Kurves, Victoria Givens and Serena. Director: Anders Manga Production date: 7/2/02 Length: 91 min. Extras: A 3-min. bonus scene, 8 min. of interviews (Keri, Kylie K., Victoria), "Glamour" music video, four diary entries (poems related to the scenes) and about a minute of additional fun footage. Audio/visual quality: This is a highly aesthetic production. The provocative images of Girl Show 2 serve as a creative tribute to the beauty and the insanity of female passion. The dynamic visual effects include jump edits, color shifts, monochrome footage, intercut text and more. These are generally concentrated in the early part of each scene. To the director's credit, the picture grows steadier as the masturbation gains momentum, providing sustained looks at the actresses' increasing excitement. The camera angles, lighting and mix of shots are all extremely pleasing.

Review brief: Here we have an all girl dvd from Pandora studios. I am a big fan of lesbian scenes when they are done right. In that I mean lots of passion including a healthy amount of kissing, breast play, and especially oral. As for toy usage I like to see next to none but if they are used at least let it be at the end of the scene or let the girl using they toy keep licking the pussy or kissing the breast. So let's see how good a job Pandora studios and the director Perk Adann did, lol on that name BTW. So for our first scene we see blond Julie hook up with her black haired friend Victoria. The two stroll around a bit before ending up walking down a hallway to a hotel room. Both the girls look hot and are all over each other as soon as the door closes. Both are touching all over each others bodies and it isn't long before Victoria is sucking on Julie's breasts and in even shorter time she is munching on Julie's pussy. Julie gets in some breast sucking and there is some breast to breast contact which looks hot.

Review brief: Cast: Kaylynn, Keri Windsor, Nina Hartley, Tina Tyler, Kylie Ireland, Logan LaBrent, Victoria Givens, August, Julie Robbins, Kelly Fire. Director: Perk Adann Production date: 10/21/01 (feature); 3/17/02 (box) Length: 90 min. Extras: A 34-min. behind-the-scenes featurette, an 11-min. bonus scene and four trailers. Audio/visual quality: Pandora is a relatively new studio, and they are still working on refining the technical aspects of their DVDs. Even so, I would rate this disc's audiovisual quality as somewhat above average. The camerawork occasionally feels a little conservative, but the angles are generally solid and satisfying. The sets are dark by design, yet the action is easily seen. Grain and artifacts appear here and there. Other minor blemishes include sporadic soft focus shifts, a slight internal reflection in the camera (in scene two only) and a crew member's shadow on the wall (in scene three only). The musical style varies widely from techno to classical.

Review brief: Running Time: 74 min. Production Date: 11 / 30 / 2001 Director: None listed Cast: Tracii Taylor, Rayn, Extacy, Missy Hyatt, and Tammy Sytch Initial Expectations: Ive never really been into wrestling, but Ive been so impress by everything else Ive seen from Pandora that I decided to pick this one up. Initial Reaction: Its easily Pandoras worst offering, but I still couldnt help but kinda like it. Who Should Watch It : Anybody looking for something softcore and who doesnt mind a little grain Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting actual wrestling or sex Audio /Video Quality: The only audio is the music, which is pretty consistent. The video has some bad pixelation and looks about like a second generation VHS copy. Its not lit too badly, but thats about the only good thing I can say about it. Ive often complained about the video quality in Pandoras releases, and when I look from where they are now compared to here, where they started, I can see that theyve made some good progress.

Its not possible for me to not have high expectations for any of their releases. Initial Reaction: It makes me wish I was a lesbian. Who Should Watch It : Anybody who likes all girl action with great chemistry Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who thinks all girl action is supposed to be boring or extremely nasty Audio /Video Quality: The audio is a bit on the soft side, but is nicely balanced and not so bad that its at all distorted. The video is clear, but has some slight grain and pixelation through much of the feature. This gives the feature a film-like feel, but I dont think it was shot on film or intended to look as if it was.

Review brief: Running Time: 67 min. Production Date: 1 / 25 / 2002 Director: Lunar Eclipse (otherwise known as the tantalizing temptress Tina Tyler) Cast: Lolita Lemarchand, Darian Caine, Mistress Tara Indiana, Mariah, Mistress Charlize, and Inga Initial Expectations: Ive been very impressed with everything Ive seen from Pandora so far, and Tina Tyler has been improving with every movie Ive seen from her. The combination should make for the best bondage DVD out there so far. Initial Reaction: Its the best bondage movie Ive seen so far. Who Should Watch It : Anybody at all interested in bondage Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who thinks bondage movies have to be of poor quality Audio /Video Quality: Bondage movies are notorious for having technical qualities rivaled only by what people got trying to get free cable putting tin foil on their TV antennas in the eighties. Thankfully, Pandora is bucking the trend. The audio has a few hollow spots, but that appears to be due to the location where it was shot. The video is also very good.

Review brief: Cast: Coral Sands, Shanna McCollough, Kelly Fire, Christi Lake and Alex Foxe. Director: Anders Manga Production date: 9/7/01 Length: 84 min. Extras: An 8-min. behind-the-scenes featurette, and trailers for the feature and three additional titles. Audio/visual quality: Pandora is a new studio, and they're still working toward refining the technical qualities of their discs. Girl Show does contain some noticeable problems with artifacts, soft focus adjustments and color bleeds across high contrast areas. The camerawork is solidly above average, however. The angles nearly always let me see exactly what I want to see. Mirrors are aptly incorporated into three of the scenes. There is judicious use of a limited amount of black and white footage. The softly percussive ambient music enhances the mood very well. The music is generally the only audio at the beginning of the scenes, with live sounds coming into the mix near the middle. The overall volume would benefit from a slight boost, especially during the featurette.

Review brief: Running Time: 84 min. Production Date: 9 / 07 / 2001 Director: Anders Manga Cast: Shanna McCullough, Coral Sands, Christi Lake, Alex Foxe, and Kelly Fire Initial Expectations: Pandora did a very nice job with Tina Tylers Going Down, and Im hoping it continues here. Initial Reaction: How long until Girl Show 2 comes out on DVD???!!! Who Should Watch It : Anybody who loves to watch a woman pleasure herself Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who wants to retain all their bodily fluids Audio /Video Quality: The audio is quite a bit on the light side, and required me to turn my volume up quite a bit. The video is normally very clear and without shadow problems. It also mixes color and black and white, which gives some of the scenes a bit more of an artistic feel. There are a few spots where you can see the lighting change as the views change and a few soft focus problems, but neither interfere much. Music: The music is pretty typical, and surprisingly doesnt continue through all of the scenes.

Review brief: Cast: Nina Hartley, Kylie Ireland, Brooke Hunter, Kimi Lixx, Dru Berrymore, Tina Tyler, Tara Indiana, Sean Michaels, Drew Andrews, Paul Carrigan, Steve Hatcher, Randy Spears and Don Hollywood in sex roles; George Kaplan and Maryann Walters in non-sex roles. Director: Tina Tyler Production date: 10/22/01 Length: 74 min. Extras: A 34-min. behind-the-scenes featurette, and trailers for the feature and three additional titles. False advertising: The box lists "Cast/Filmmaker Profiles," "Behind the Scenes" and "The Making of Tina Tyler's Going Down" as three separate extras, when in fact there's only one featurette. The featurette does contain performer and director interviews, which might be considered "profiles," so I haven't deducted any points. But it's definitely sloppy copy, and I don't like it. Audio/visual quality: Visual quality is roughly equal to VHS. There are minor ongoing problems with artifacts, soft focus, shadows and color bleeds across high contrast edges. Emphasis falls on medium-length shots.

With the cast shes assembled here, Im expecting just as much going up as going down. Initial Reaction: It has a few minor problems, but also has some great sex thats fun to watch. Who Should Watch It : Fans of the stars and raincoaters Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who thinks sex stars should quit when theyre old enough to legally drink Audio /Video Quality: The audio is very clear and well balanced. Even Tinas narration of the scenes are nicely balanced with the rest of the audio. The video lacks a little, but pretty good considering the set.
