Date of Production: 3/26/2005 (box); 4/3/2005 (credits)
Extra's: The best extra this time was a series of solo masturbation/tease shorts by the gals of the movie. While they didn't last nearly long enough, it was cool seeing them have some quality time alone after watching their scenes with the guys. My second favorite extra was a selection of 4 minutes worth of Behind the Scenes footage, mostly blooper footage of the performers screwing up. The other extras included a photogallery, credits, a collection of the pop shots from the scenes, some trailers and a double sided DVD cover.
Audio/Video Quality: Grudgefuck 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Guy Capo for DVSX. The colors were accurate, the grain minimal, the lighting pretty fair, and the composition of the shots pleasing to the eye for the most part. There were no noticeable compression artifacts or major amounts of video noise and my overall assessment of the picture quality was favorable. The stereo audio was pretty basic, as expected, but it didn't detract from the heated scenes included on the DVD.

Body of Review: Having reviewed porn for years now, I sometimes take a personal interest in various companies, performers, and directors when they show me that they have some spark that sets them above the crowded field. One guy that has achieved this is Guy Capo, an interesting character that I met in 2004. While I haven't seen enough of his work to truly tell if he's going to make it big or not, I liked his latest release on DVD; Grudgefuck 3, enough that I'll keep watching what this man makes in the future. The premise was to showcase couples that had a fight and had that kind of passionate fuck that can arise from such a situation, employing humor in some cases to make it all the better. With some great looking gals having heated times, here's a look at the scenes, noting that none of them used condoms:
Scene One: Monica Mayhem, the hotty featured on the left side of the front DVD cover (now sporting dark hair in place of her former blonde locks), was up first in a scene with Rick Patrick after the two had a heated argument. While the acting during the fight was pretty weak, the sex afterwards was very passionate indeed with her engulfing his member as though it was full of oxygen and she was running out of air. They then screwed vaginally with her doing some taste testing (PTM) before round two of the oral and boning. This pattern continued with some hair pulling and dirty talk before he splooged all over her with the scene being pretty warm at times with some nice chemistry.
Scene Two: Haley Paige, a significantly younger brunette as displayed on the upper right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next with Jack Lawrence after the two relived a fight inside a car at night. Using a stylish bit of photography to date the material, director Capo showed the two at the base of some stairs going at it as though they'd rip each other apart if given the chance. Her oral wasn't as solid as Monica's but it fit the theme of the title and they did anal in addition to the vaginal this time. Fans of dirty talk will appreciate that she did a lot of it here and while the chemistry wasn't as solid this time, much of the scene was full of energy.
Scene Three: Kelly Kline, one of the cutest gals in porn these days (shown in the upper middle of the front DVD cover), was in the process of breaking up with her main squeeze Richard Raymond in an apartment being readied for a move (she told him the divorce was a done deal). He forced himself on her for a last fling and when she refused, he walked away, only to find her follow him and turn the tables. Her oral was as good as I've seen of her in any of her past movies (I've seen a lot of them folks), as she used her hands and eyes to coax him into a state of turgid rigidity. While he's not the largest guy she's done, he is her husband in real life so there was something more to the scene than with the others (she can always shack up with me if she leaves him in real life). Once the oral was over, he went straight to her ass, with her riding his admittedly small penis with some solid energy. She then did some ATM (ass to mouth) as she jerked him off to a facial pop shot that she didn't swallow. In all though, it was well done in my book.
Scene Four: Nikki Blaze, a 23 year old blonde that was sadly not featured on the front DVD cover, was up next in a scene where she was a model getting a portfolio from photographer Steven French. He pissed her off and she responded with the usual fake rage after being fed up with his continued demands for increasingly nude pictures. If you like chunky chicks with some meat on their bones (I happen to myself) and faces that are somewhat plain, she'll appeal to you more than the glamorous gals in the other scenes. Her oral and straight sex was kind of boring since he did most of the work with her just laying there before the chest pop shot. The scene was kind of weak in several ways so this one didn't add a lot to the show.
Scene Five: Trina Michaels, another blonde with limited acting skills and a curvy body, was up next in a scene with Chris Cannon. She was also left off the front DVD cover which sucked for fans but she had a nice ass to watch. The scenario here was that she told him how unfaithful she had been; sleeping with someone else while another guy jerked off on her. This angered Chris and the next thing you know, the two were savagely going at one another with oral, vaginal, anal and taste testing (PTM and ATM). There was some serious passion this time during the sex and I liked the scene a whole lot, right up until the pop shot on her face. I didn't like the implants, the crotch zits, or the pacing but it was a great scene in many other ways.
Scene Six: Dani Woodward, the lean little redhead on the lower right hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next in a scene with Nick Manning with him as a financier trying to explain her lousy credit. The scene quickly went from the talking crud to the straight out boning in a jumpy manner that led me to believe something happened to the in between footage but the couple got hot and sweaty nonetheless. I could've used less of Nick's goofy dirty talk and more energy from her at first but she picked up the pace midway through and rode him nicely in her tight pussy (doing some PTM along the way). It ended with the largest load of the movie splashing her face and ended on a high note.
Summary: Grudgefuck 3 might not have been as consistently good as Ass Factor but I liked four of the five scenes enough to rate this one as Recommended (nearly the next level up in fact). The cast was attractive, the sex was passionate, and the production values were above average in most of the scenes with some decent extras to increase the fuck for your buck value. The movie proved to me that Guy still has some of the vision I've seen in him in the past so if you get a chance, you should try and check out some of his works. If you'd rather have a lengthy plot, lots of non-sexual activity, and other aspects of a movie not associated with porn, you can do better elsewhere but the scenarios here were just good enough to make me smile more often than not.
