Extra's: The extras were quite limited this time with a cast list, Evil Angel filmographies for most of the cast, some trailers and a pop shot compilation for the scenes.

Audio/Video Quality: Suck It Dry was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was made in by director Jonni Darkko for distribution by Evil Angel. The scenes were all done in POV (point of View) fashion as though the viewer had his lap up to the gal's mouths, and none of them looked bad but the lighting of such scenes is decidedly more difficult to get right than a typical porno and there were some flaws because of it. There were shadows and some grain with a bit of awkward camera movement that you'd expect from anyone getting his knob slobbed while he balanced the camera. There were times that the focus would be off or some minor pattern noise would appear but I saw no compression artifacts and my general assessment of the DVD was slightly favorable in terms of picture quality. The stereo English audio was very basic with no separation between the channels and limited dynamic range but you could hear what was said if that works for you.
Body of Review: Jonni Darkko is one of the latest directors working at the infamous Evil Angel production company. As such, the comparisons are inevitable between his vision and that of the company's more established directors but whatever your particular tastes, he has a good understanding of what turns people on. My own observations of the guy lead me to believe that he still has some rough edges to overcome before he reaches his full potential but I recognize that he has already managed to work wonders with some of the gals he's worked with so I try to see whatever he releases these days. His latest DVD appears to be a compilation of past blowjobs he's shot over the years in POV fashion, combined in the DVD titled: Suck It Dry.
Like most blowjob only compilations, the scenes varied in the amount of heat they showed, largely according to how skilled the performers were, Some, like the incredible Tiffany Mynx, were exceptionally good at what they did, even giving a titty fuck to go with her dirty talk to offer up a great way to start the scene. Other times, he caught the gals before they were at their peak sexual ability, like Ashley Blue for example. There were beauties like Tianna Lynn, whose eyes alone could probably coax out a load, and some like Jamie Huxley that relied more on their skill. Still others relied on their speed suck methods (like Flick Shagwell) but in all, I had to admit that fans of point of view (POV) blowjob scenes had a lot to appreciate here in these 18 scenes (only one of them had two gals attacking his meat pipe at the same time).
There's not a lot to tell about the scenes though since most of them didn't last very long and aside from the occasional gal getting to talk a bit, the only memorable line was "spitters are quitters" during Delilah and Alektra's scene together. All the gals offered up some form of solid energy and appeared to enjoy having a penis jammed down their throat (at least as long as they were in charge of the action). In general, it wasn't as balls to the wall oral as you'll find in the Feeding Frenzy series by fellow director Jules Jordan but it was a nice offering for fans of this kind of thing.
Summary: Suck It Dry had very few extras worth mentioning and limited replay value since few of the gals were into the action enough to warrant significant replay value. As a workman like project, I think Jonni provided a lot of decent action but it wasn't the kind of action that you'll want to watch over and over again in most cases. I'm going to rate this one as a Rent It for most fans of porn and readily acknowledge that fans of blowjob only DVDs will likely find enough worthy material to boost that up at least one more category but most of the rest of you, like myself, will find a lot of the gals somewhere below their peak skills with a meat pipe and wanting more. I suppose it would be fair to say this one had a lot of suck for the buck but considering how lengthy many of Evil Angel's DVDs have been in recent months, this one barely raises an eyebrow (it's tough to go home once you've watched, four, five and six hour releases for the same price).
