Previews, Slide Show, Director's Profile, Sex Talk, Hustler.com, Hustler Hollywood
The extras kick off with an animated menu featuring six Previews, including trailers for Anal Intensive 8, Mr. Beaver Checks In 18, Superfuckers 20, Precious Pink 11, Hustler XXX 21 and Exxxotica 4. In all, there's just over nine minutes of sneak preview sex.
The Slide Show is exactly that, with around 10 stills that are flipped through automatically every five seconds, backed by the menu music. Meanwhile, Sex Talk features two phone sex ads that are tame compared to those from other companies, as two young women masturbate while their phone number flashes on-screen. The hawking doesn't stop there, as a pair of "features" for Hustler products follow, in the forms of a list of Hustler.com links and a Hustler Hollywood commercial for their adult shop in Los Angeles.
I've saved the best for last, which is the Director's Profile of Pierre Woodman. An interview with the director is intercut with audition footage for his films and scenes from his movies. Woodman talks about his casting process, his grandfather's advice and his love for Larry Flynt. The featurette runs just under nine minutes.
The video is crisp and clear (check out the still from the second scene for an example of the top end), though there's a definitely bump up in quality from the interviews to the actual sex scenes. Whether this was a style choice or a function of the material used is unknown. The audio is good, especially in the one outdoor scene., but could have been better, as the echo in the bathroom scene showed.
Body of Review:
After watching this DVD and making up my mind as to what I thought of it, I went back and read the reviews on DVDTalk.com for Casting Couch 1 and Casting Couch 2. I wasn't surprised when I saw they agreed with my view of the third disc. The concept seems more like a milking of previous releases than a true compilation. Check out the scenes that are included:
Vita (Hustler XXX 15)
Oral (F/M), Vaginal, Anal, Facial
Cowgirl, Reverse Cowgirl, 69
A pretty blonde Russian named Vita is interviewed by Woodman, which is a verbal clusterfuck: a French-speaker interviewing a Russian-speaker, with both struggling with English. For some reasons, they didn't even include subtitles for this one, which makes the interview intolerable. I though, perhaps when her clothes come off, it would get better. Silly me. They both spoke Russian, leaving me frustrated, which is the worst thing a porno video can do.
Once we get into the clip, we have Vita being eaten out with vigor, and then a bit of quid pro quo on her part, as she eats out her purple-haired friend. A quick cut and Vita's riding some hard cock, while her friend helps prime their cocksman's pump. No one seems to speak English, which means we're spared the usual cheesey dialogue, but Vita only knows how to moan one way, and she does it alot. She also seems to bleach her asshole, which is a strange sight. After some very repetitive fucking, Her girlfriend takes her turn at a backwards anal ride, while Vita tastes her near-nonexistant melons.
A change of places puts the girls into a 69 position, which allows Vita to be taken in the ass, and her trademark moan returns. A few minutes of this rewards Vita and her friend with a facial from their appreciative lover. The moaning is distracting, as is Vita's female friend, but luckily Vita's a good-looking girl. That saves this 22-minute scene from being a waste.
Fingercuffs, Missionary, Side Entry, Reverse Cowgirl, Cowgirl.
This Czech-mate is interviewed by Woodman in Prague. She shows off her modeling portfolio while her dog runs around causing trouble and the language barrier is back again. It's a real dick-shrinker, especially when he asks if she like to "eat sperm.". As the interview wraps up, she shows off her hairy pussy and ass, and her lovely tampon string. Check (or Czech), please.
The sex scene looks all the better in comparison, as she sucks off a pair of studs in her kitchen, with the most over-the-top moaning you've heard since...well, the first scene here. She's an enthusiastic cocksucker, which makes the scene really work. As she climbs up on the kitchen counter, the guys make a Luiza sandwich out of her, filling her top and bottom. A nice close-up of her filled funhole puncuates the action nicely.
A switch to anal only ratchets up Luiza's melodic moans, and soon their turning her left right and upside down to take a crack at her cracks. Without pulling out, the twosome moves to the floor, opening her up for a tag-team penetration, and that's exactly what happens, with the camera getting a nice view of the action. The trio switches places, which brings them both off, as they pop in her mouth and on her waiting face. This girl truly seemed to be enjoying herself, and her enthusiasm helped the sex rise above the miserable interview.
Make-up is an amazing thing. It can make a blonde, broke-down Drew Barrymore lookalike like the girl in the this interview (check out that picture to the left) look like the redheaded Hungarian honey in the sex scene. While it's pretty unpleasant to look at her in the interview, at least this time the languages were translated in subtitles. Of course, Woodman goes one step too far, asking if she wants to be peed on. Oh well. She's not much better looking naked than clothed either way. If I didn't know better, I'd think she was a man. I may not even know better.
Fortunately, Tundella is about 100 times better looking in the sex scenes, but it would have been nice to include some sex. What we get instead is simulated positions during a photo shoot. After sitting through that interview, we should have gotten a much better follow-up. Very disappointing.
Sandy's a 21-year-old Czech cutie with an attitude that makes men's balls retreat in fear. Cracking a smile seems like a crime to her. And once again, Woodman tries to introduce golden showers. When her clothes come off though, her breasts are fantastic and she's finally happy. Apparently, clothes make her sad. Oxana is Sandy's Slovakian near-twin in attitude and looks. And like Sandy, she looks much better naked.
They definitely clean up nice, as make-up and hairstyling make them into eastern European hotties. A five-some in a bathroom is first on tap for them, and they take on all cummers, getting right into the blowjobs and anal sex like it's nothing to them. When they get into synchronized fucking, the heat reaches a new level, as they are plowed professionally, taking it in every hole. The guy in the goggles and respirator handling the anal half of the dual DPs could use some explaning though. Sandy's milky-white skin and massive tits make her the star of the show, though her cocksucking skill doesn't hurt either. These two were real downers in their interviews, making their porn performances all the more surprising and welcome.
Alma Dragon (Platinum 2)
Oral (M/F), Vaginal, Anal
Doggie, Reverse Cowgirl
A cute, young Brazilian, she conducts her interview in halting English, with some help from a translator. Aside from some scarring (including what looks like a C-section) she's got a great body, which makes the language problems all the more annoying.
Once again, we're treated to a behind the scenes version of sex scene, which is loaded with everything BUT hardcore sex, and plenty of a language I don't understand, which makes it all the more fun. I mean, I love watching a guy jerk-off for a reason I don't know. Plus, I think there's more footage of Woodman and his camera than of Alma. Bad idea for a scene.
A Filipino-Chinese girl, Sabrine has better English skills that the other girls, which makes the interview more bearable. It doesn't hurt that she's really cute too.
Shot on locationby a waterfall, this scene starts off with an excellent blowjob by Sabrine, amd some skilled pussy licking by her boy. Before long, he's giving it to her from behind on the rocks, and then from below and she rides him with precision. A wipe turns her around, and she's got an ass full of man meat in a reverse ride. The fucking slows down as he pins her legs back to her shoulders, with a beautiful backdrop behind them. For some reason though, the camera focuses on a snail on the rocks, and then cuts to his coming in her mouth. Not the most attractive on-screen pairing. The sex is hot though and Sabrine is more than willing.
A pierced, dredlocked Czech, Nika doesn't look like your usual Eastern European. In fact, her hair is likely bigger than the rest of her very sexy body. She's not a hair-care freak, allowing a cute little bush to grow down below. A minor disagreement gives the interview an aggressive feel, but obviously it all worked out.
Woodman takes her into another room, where he has a camera on a tripod to the side of the bed. Laying Nika down, he eats her out, before they get into a 69 position. Nika's a very sexy girl who knows her way around a cock, and she seems to enjoy Woodman's oral talents. With them both lubed up, Woodman lays some pipe and tries to drive Nika through the headboard with his epileptic fuck technique. With just one angle, the sex is a bit distant from the viewer, though it does lend it a certain voyeuristic feel. An extensive and gymastic bout of anal puts the capper on the scene, as he fucks her ass like its an event in the special olympics, before coming in her and colapsing on top of her.
Most anyone picking up a porno is looking for sex, possibly in the middle of a story. While I might be very happy to find this behind-the-scenes footage among the bonus materials, a full DVD of it just doesn't cut it. Half the time is spent trying to break down language barriers, while two full scenes aren't even real sex scenes. Unless you're hard-up for European porn, (and who really is?) your cash is better spent elsewhere, including on the DVDs these scenes are culled from. Some of the clips, especially the Sabrine Maui scene, are pretty hot. As a sampler, its a good disc, but who pays for a sampler?
