"Bonus Room" [3 extra scenes], "Behind the Scenes", & a
Photo Gallery. There are also some previews, an ad for Vivid's website &
something called "Sexy Talk" which is actually the FORCED phone sex
ads at the beginning [does anyone actually PAY for that..?]
The video is 1.33:1 full frame ratio. Since the ten scenes are culled from ten different
films, the picture quality and audio is
inconsistent. The majority
are shot on video and have acceptable audio and video.
Preface about compilations: It's my belief that compilations are
much better than full features. I mean, think about it. Why do people watch
Adult films? Is it for the compelling storylines? How 'bout the Oscar worthy
acting? Nope. It's for sex. Plain and simple. These Vivid compilations serve
that purpose. They present you with a DVD that cuts all the bull and gets down
Now, as far as Tia goes...i'm a BIG fan of hers. Well, maybe I shouldn't say
FAN...by definition that'd be the wrong word. How 'bout...admirer. While I don't
racially discriminate when it comes to females, I find i'm more attracted to
Latin females. Tia, according to a bio that I found, is of Latin/Greek descent. So you
know what that means...
I really can't judge her on her acting ability [not that you'd necessarily
CARE about that], but I can tell you that i've YET to see a scene of hers where
it seems she's just "going through the motions". That's why in the
following review, i'll rarely comment on her performance. You know that old
saying: "If you can't say anything nice...don't say anything at all"?
I believe the opposite. If I think she's giving a bad performance, hormones aside,
i'll let ya know.
Scene from "2nd Coming":
Tia Bella, Jill Kelly
This was a HOT scene.
It begins with Tia trying on a sexy pink outfit for Jill. It doesn't stay on too long
though and before we know it, Tia's laying back on the ottoman spread open and
having her pussy devoured by Jill. After Tia returns the favor, a transparent double headed dildo is brought out for some action. It doesn't stay
too long and is shortly replaced by a black anal intruder. Tia uses it to work
Jill's ass over quite a bit. As this is happening, the scene cuts to another couple
on a balcony observing the action. After a few "ariel" shots of our
action which ends with Tia laying on Jill. The camera pans up to the couple that was
watching, now being shoo-ed away by a dwarf who's nodding at Jill.
I'm not one for girl/girl
scenes. As long as the entire disc isn't filled with them, I don't necessarily
mind 'em. But I don't seek 'em out. This one, however, brought the heat. In
spades. In fact, this clip made me want to check out the entire flick.
Scene from "Camera Shy":
Tia Bella & Nick East
This scene begins with
Tia dressed as an angel, complete with wings, sitting on a chair, while Nick, dressed as
the devil, is getting some first hand experience, between Tia's legs, on what Heaven must feel
like. Now, i'm not sure if this is how the scene plays out in the full feature,
but there's no foreplay whatsoever. We go from Nick on his knees, looking like
he's ready to sample some of Tia, to Nick on the chair at full attention with
Tia mounting him. Oh well. Tia's excellent reverse cowgirl takes up the majority of the
scene, until they switch places and Nick spreads Tia wide open as he does his best to make Tia's gates...pearly. Eventually he
does which brings this scene to its climax.
Even though this scene could've been longer and
had a bit more variety as far as positions were concerned, ANY opportunity to
watch Tia fuck and get fucked is one that should not be missed. The lingerie she
was wearing enhanced that hotness.

Scene from "Fresh":
Tia Bella, Barett Moore & Nick East
Doggystyle. Reverse Cowgirl.
After a brief exchange with Tia, a topless Barrett pulls Nick into
the bedroom. As Nick is kissing/licking Barett's body, she motions to Tia to
join them. Tia adjusts her top and looks away, feigning disinterest. After Nick throws Barett
onto the bed, Tia jumps off and moves over to a nearby chair. While Barett is
giving Nick a blowjob, i'm
guessing the excitement gets to Tia since her since her breasts come out, her dress goes
up and she starts rubbing on her pussy. She does this for the entire
scene as Barett & Nick get busy on the bed. They start off with some
doggystyle followed by some deep reverse cowgirl. The scene ends with some more
doggystyle until Nick shoots on Barett's ass.
The sex was pretty good and watching Tia play
with herself as she was watching the action was even hotter.
Scene from "Gettin' Lucky":
Tia Bella, Johnnie Black & Marc Wallace
Oral. Vaginal. Anal.
The scene begins with Johnnie
and Marc undressing Tia. Once she's naked, Johnnie dives between her legs to
lick Tia's neatly trimmed pussy. After a while, Marc decides to take Johnnie's
spot and resume where she left off, while Johnnie gets a quick licking from Tia.
Eventually, Mark strips down to let both ladies take turns giving their lips,
and tongues, a good workout. He bends Tia over for some doggystyle and at times it look like
the action might shift to anal, but he's just teasing her. He saves the anal
action for Johnnie, spooning her while Tia observes. This short scene ends with
a weak shot from Marc. For shame...
This scene could've been much better.
Unfortunately, while I was researching another feature I was reviewing, I
discovered that Mr. Wallace had/has HIV. Yes, I know it was a while back, but
finding any CREDIBLE porn information/websites, is harder than getting a date
with a porn star. Anyways, this knowledge tainted my viewing of this scene. And
while this isn't my first time watching it, real life crept in and made it that
less enjoyable for me. Perhaps this scene and next is the reason Tia's retired?
Scene from "the Look":
Tia Bella & Marc Wallace
Doggystyle. Reverse Cowgirl.
This scene begins, as every scene
should, with Tia on her knees giving Marc, who's lookin' kinda old, a blowjob. A couple
minutes later, he strips her down and returns the favor with a lengthy licking. After spending a fair amount of time
between her thighs, Marc finally sits
back so Tia can ride him. When she's done, she stands up and Marc hits her from
behind until he shoots on her thigh.
When I first reviewed this scene, I felt it was
a good scene. But, as with the previous scene, the knowledge of Marc's heath
status tainted it for me. I guess it's true what they say...ignorance is bliss.
Scene from "Party Favors":
Tia Bella, Dee, Corinne Williams, Wildcat & Vince Vouyer
While Dee, Corinne and Cheyenne are rubbing their bodies together,
Tia strips down and lets Vince give her pussy a good licking. After cutting to
the three ladies licking and rubbing, we see that Tia is now giving Vince a
blowjob. There's some penetration of both the
missionary and doggy variety while Dee, Corinne & Cheyenne stay in a
corner for the entire scene. After riding Vince, the scene ends with Tia laying
back on an ottoman as Vince shoots while standing over her.
Tia looked real good wearing her black stocking
and pumps, and I definitely like the positions she found herself in. However, I was disappointed
that there was no M/F action with Corinne or Dee. Corinne has a nice body,
though, i'm unsure if it's siliconly enhanced, and it's a shame we couldn't see
it in action.
Scene from "Tia Bella: Extreme Close Up #3":
Tia Bella & AJ
As you can see in the screencap, Tia's sitting on a bar wearing a
sexy black and red number. AJ, whom either OWNS Vivid, or is blackmailing
someone to assure a place in Tia's movies, undresses her and begins licking her
pussy. After a blowjob, Tia gets on top for some cowgirl on the bar. We see her
giving AJ a blowjob, before ending the scene by stroking him til he shoots.
This scene was awfully short for some reason.
However, since my all-time favorite actor, AJ, was in it, this was probably for
Scene from "Where the Boys Aren't 10":
Tia Bella, Heather Hunter, Kobe Tai & Leslie Glass
Four hot ladies. Stripping their clothes off and playing, licking,
and caressing each other. This should be a good thing, no?
Well, it is. However, the rap music has to go. And, though this is your standard carpet munching
four of the girls looked like they were enjoying themselves. AND each other.
Scene from "Gettin' Lucky":
Tia Bella & James Bonn
We start this scene with a pretty good blowjob by Tia in a black
thong. After a few minutes of this, James quickly does away with the thong
and briefly returns the favor. She spreads her legs open for some
missionary, while she uses her finger to provide some anal
stimulation. There's some doggystyle until he shoots on her chest.
or not, I'm not conserving my words. The scene was literally as short as it reads.
Good, but short.
Scene from "Tia Bella: Extreme Close Up #3":
Tia Bella, Leanni Lei & Jessica Darlin'
We join the scene as all three girls are in bed.
Leanni is working Tia over with a dildo while Jessica's bring up the rear. Well,
Leanni's rear, that is. The configuration changes and now Leanni is working
over Jessica with the dildo while Tia's letting Jessica's tongue get a workout.
I was just about to type "Yet another typical girl/girl scene" when
the scene cuts and Jessica starts riding a STRAP ON that Tia's wearing. Then
Leanni gets to ride...until it abruptly ends.
It's a shame that once Tia put on the strap-on
the scene ended. I know I would've enjoyed it as much as Leanni and Jessica
Scene from "the Fetish Underground":
Rebecca Love & Betty Sue
Scene from "Nailed":
Sharon Kane & Slim Shady
Scene from "Bawdy & Soul":
Chloe, Lene & Peter North
the Scenes of "Nailed"
I'm done. I guess i'm just expecting too much from Vivid. To be honest, I
have no ideal the "official" number of FULL features that Tia
did for them during her time in the business, but i'm beginning to believe
that i've seen all of her sex scenes. Or, at least, that's what Vivid
would have me believe thanks to the repetitiveness on these compilations. As I stated in the preface, Tia Bella is one of my all-time favorite
actresses. Besides her beauty, she generates major heat in practically
every scene she's in. However, the configuration of scenes on this disc
wasn't as strong as previous compilations. It's a shame Vivid doesn't take
a cue from Private and put together a set similar to Best
of the Best: 1997-2002 that was devoted to Tia.
The scenes on this disc were pretty good,
therefore this one squeaks by with rent it.
