Extra's: My favorite extra was the 17 minute long Behind the Scenes featurette that gave each gal some screen time. I always find such extras interesting since almost invariably they find some angle worth exploring (Kurt's prodding of Jewel was amusing, to say the least, although she would've done well to smack the crap out of him too). There was also an interesting series of photoshoots with the gals, totaling about 11.5 minutes. It showed the gals had fun, weren't coerced, and enjoyed making heaps of cash having sex on camera. There was also the usual cumshot recap, a photogallery, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover to add to the value of the DVD.
Audio/Video Quality: Size Queens 2 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Jewel De'Nyle for Platinum X Pictures. Most PXP movies are very well shot with proper lighting and limited grain/video noise as a result but this one varied slightly more than average. A few aspects of some scenes had shadows that proper lighting would've eliminated and there was some grain as a result. The fleshtones looked mostly accurate and the overall impression I got about the look of the visual elements of the show was that it was on par with something released by Evil Angel rather than PXP or Red Light District. I saw no compression artifacts or pixelation so it wasn't a bad looking DVD by any means. The basic stereo English audio track was nothing special but I don't really expect much from a gonzo shoot to begin with. There was no significant separation between the tracks and the dynamic range was limited too but I could hear the moans and groans just fine.

Body of Review: One of my favorite performers in front of the camera over the years has to have been Jewel De'Nyle; the attractive brunette with curves to kill for. In recent years, she's taken over the reigns as the lead director for Platinum X Pictures and phased out her performance career (sniff!) but given her past, she has proven up to the task at hand. Her latest release is Size Queens 2, a show about gals clamoring for large cocks ravaging them in all their bodily orifices, and she shows she hasn't lost her ability to communicate heat from behind the scenes although some of the performers weren't at their best this time. If it were up to me, Jewel would've jumped right in and showed a few of them a thing or two but you can read all about the individual scenes below. Noting that none of the performers used condoms, here's a quick look at the movie:
Scene One: Rita Faltoyano, a cute foreigner with long brown hair and a great ass, was up first as she teased the camera in front of a couch. The generic music played in the background as she sort of masturbated, initially playing with her nipples and then stroking her wet pussy to prepare for the scene she was about to have with Steve Holmes. While not exactly a hugely endowed guy, his penis wasn't small by any means and she took to it well, sucking it playfully as she inhaled it with her usual brand of energy. While desperately in need of a haircut, he used his oral talents on her as well, snacking on her crack like most of us would do if given half the chance before impaling her to her throaty moans. They did a few positions before the anal came into play with some taste testing on her part as the scene progressed. There was some dirty talk and minor choking with a short but sweet titty fuck to boot. In all, I was surprised that she wasn't featured on the front DVD cover as in Mind Fuck but I kept an open mind. This chemistry filled scene ended when he rubbed out a load to her chest as she demanded with her licking them clean as though totally into his taste.
Scene Two: Marie Luv, a very lean black gal with some razor burn on her crotch, was up next as she followed the formula to a "T". By this, I mean her partner was Tee Reel but also that she didn't deviate from the basic structure laid out for the scenes too. I'm not her biggest fan since she seems to equate yelling with heat; probably thinking porn fans are fooled by such antics as her real life partners (paying or not) are. I'll give her credit for having washboard abs and a throat that can deep throat with the best of them but mechanical sex isn't my bag so the scene didn't work for me. The sex included oral, vaginal, and anal but I wish she'd learn to "fake it" better. She didn't mind doing ATM and took the minor facial well enough.
Scene Three: Katja Kassin, perhaps the reigning anal queen in porn today, was up next with her newly brunette hair, all natural body, and plump, round ass. Like the others, she followed the formula as she stripped, masturbated and tasted herself off her fingers. Her partner was another guy that wasn't exactly large compared to some of the men she's done in the past, Kurt Lockwood, but she treated him as though he were the only man on Earth capable of doing her the way she wanted to be done so the chemistry levels were high. While blowing him energetically, she also licked his balls and ass, something not all porn gals will do these days. He returned the favor by giving her some head and then they boned like crazy in various positions. She also sucked his foot in one position during the vaginal entry but it was her anal action that most of you are going to want to see, calling for him to fuck her tight asshole as she moaned and groaned. Her intensity level wasn't at its peak but this was another gal that could easily have been on the front DVD cover to sell more copies. It ended when he pulled out of her ass and rubbed out a load onto her face and into her mouth with her sucking him clean afterwards.
Scene Four: Kelly Wells, an intense little blonde that sometimes goes by the name Kelly "Fuck'n" Wells, was up next in a scene following the formula on a couch with Sean Michaels as her partner. Kelly has been somewhat hit or miss with me of late since her "look" doesn't always work for me and the energy levels of her performances vary so much but she seems to be building a large base of fans so I keep watching to see if she'll become a more consistently solid performer. Sean was truly one of the better endowed men of the movie so she can't be said to shy away from doing interracial or large cocks and she certainly took a shine to him during the oral portion of the scene. If anything, she was second only to Rita in terms of great oral and he went straight to her ass when hammering away for some nut milking action. She rode him well enough but not with as much enthusiasm as she took him in the mouth but she did beg for some ATM and I know some of you really like that. It ended with the standard jerking off to the face with her swallowing what little he had to offer.
Scene Five: Selena Silver, the lean bleached blonde on the front DVD cover, has long been something of an enigma to me since in one scene she'll shine like no other and the next time I see her she looks asleep at the wheel. She's pretty active online with her KSEX radio show and incredibly positive reviews (I prefer unbiased reviews though; hers come off like she doesn't want to say anything negative about those she'll work with in the future), so I know she's built up a fan base built on that more than her actual body of work which may have been why she scored the front DVD cover over a few of the others. Her partner for the scene was Sean Michaels and he used her as a fuck socket more than an equal partner but she did a decent job slobbing his knob here. She was too passive during the initial vaginal action for my tastes but seemed to pick up the speed during the cowgirl (with PTM) action. She did a little bit of anal but aside from some verbal comments; she was a slab of meat here too. In all, it wasn't one of her better scenes to date and ended with the rubbed out load to the face.
Summary: Size Queens 2 was worth a rating of Rent It for me. While I can't deny that a couple of the performances were very heated and full of chemistry, the others were either limited or lacking more than I wanted them to be. Rita was definitely the highlight here and Selena must've blown someone to get the front DVD cover over a couple of the others here but even the formula itself lacking some spark to set it apart from the majority of gonzo porn on the market. As much as I'd kiss Jewel's very lovely ass if given the chance, I felt obligated to point out the limitations here although fans of the gals will probably find enough to appreciate this one as a purchase if bought online. To sum up Size Queens 2, it wasn't bad but it wasn't Jewel De'Nyle's best work of late either. It needed larger men, more skilled women, and something intangible to boost it up in future volumes (something perhaps only Jewel can provide).
