This movie had two strikes against it before I even opened the case. One, it was from a studio I'd never seen before, which resulted in a bad review last time it happened, and two, it is an "interactive" disc, a genre that disappointed me in my last review. But I have to be unbiased when it comes to these flicks, so I cleared the palette before digging in. I shouldn't have bothered.
Layla's a decent looking girl for a porn star, but she's a horrible actress, something you can't be to make an interactive disc work. Fortunately for her, this is hardly interactive, as all you do is select a section of the DVD to watch from three areas: interactive, foreplay and sex. In each area there are several choices, like "Eat Her Pussy" or "Make Her Swallow." Unfortunately, each section is rather short, and is edited, so you lose the "you are there" feel. Worse yet, you only get one cum shot, and not one in actual intercourse. Apparently, the director felt all you want to do is cum in a girl's mouth. Well, I like to have other options.
Without an on-screen menu during the action, the clunky navigation, which forces you back to the position selection menu after a harsh cut to black. There's no chance to build any heat or momentum with this DVD, because as soon as things get good, you have to reach for your remote. There are better ways to feel like a part of the action.
The detail and color on this full-frame DVD are simply fantastic. The stubble on Layla's pussy is well defined, and there's not a bit of action missed. Considering the limitations faced by the camera, such quality is very impressive. The audio is just as good, capturing every thrust and moan, albeit without music, so the challenge of getting it right is somewhat lessened.
First off is what is probably Bouncy Pictures best contribution to adult films: Gogo Extreme. This feature allows you to watch six scenes at once, with the sound blended together. It might be overload for some, but for the attention-deficient, there's always something new to look at. It's a great feature with a lot of promise.
Next up is a short one-minute interview with the star of the show, Layla Rivera. It basically covers the old standard like what's it like to work with this guy or this company, but is wrapped up with an interesting comment about the future of gonzo films. Nice to see one of these girls thinking about the industry. There's also a 51-still photo gallery of Layla, including stills from the film, and five trailers.
This is more like a choose-your-own-poon-venture than an interactive DVD, as you simply choose a section and watch it. While Layla's a good-looking girl, what makes it a big disappointment is the inability to cum in an act other than oral. The recent "Interactive Sin with Monique Alexander" allowed the viewer the choice of cumshot in every position, and in multiple ways. This disc is much more limited, and as such, isn't worth more than one viewing and that one would be a stretch.
