Cast: Alicia Alighetti, Chris Charming, Courtney Cummz, Tony T., Haley Scott, Van Damage, Delilah Strong, Barry Scott, Veronica Lynn
Length: 128 minutes
Date of Production: 7/7/2005
Extra's: My favorite extra was the 9.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Poppa Nutt that looked at the making of the movie. From Axel's egomaniac kidding about his level of genius to the performers acting like they're going to bust out laughing, the extra was well worth a look. There was also a set of short interviews with some of the gals (covergirl Courtney was conspicuously absent) that lasted under 2.5 minutes in each case. There was also a pop shot compilation from the scenes, a couple of photogalleries, some trailers, and a double sided DVD cover. There was also some sex talk spam but that's hardly an extra.
Audio/Video Quality: Direct Deposit was presented in the 1.85:1 ratio non-anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director Axel Braun for distribution by Mayhem. The fleshtones were accurate but the lighting was weak enough to cause all sorts of problems with grain and shadows. The composition of the shots was mixed too since there were numerous times when the blemishes of the cast were zoomed in on (better productions don't do that or at least edit those moments out if they even use blemished gals at all). The picture did look faded out in some cases too but that wasn't always the case so don't worry about it too much. I saw no compression artifacts in the picture but there was some pattern noise when the gals wore fishnet stockings. The stereo English audio was as basic as could be with no separation between the channels and limited dynamic range on top of as hollow sounding cast.

Body of Review: Director Axel Braun has made some very heated porn in his career so I made it a point to pick up his latest release on DVD the other day. The title was Direct Deposit and the theme was to showcase creampies in the vignette style scenes. Well, this was one of those times when I seriously doubted the authenticity of the pop shots since the guys would often seem prepared to drop another load to the faces of the gals and the consistency of the initial creampie seemed to be a mixture that I've seen made in other BTS scenes. That said, the cast wasn't bad and fans might still want to give them a look so here's a glimpse into those scenes, noting no condoms were used:
Scene One: Alicia Alighetti, wearing a black top and neon pink skirt, began by teasing the camera and masturbating but was soon sucking Chris Charming's cock. It was a mechanical BJ but she began riding the dick in her pussy with some enthusiasm to make up for it. As he power stroked her, she bounced up and down but she faded out fairly quick to let him to all the work after changing positions to do some repeated PTM. Her over the top vocals were okay, as was the use of her feet to jerk him off, ending with him giving her a creampie (and there's no way to know if it was real or not although it looked too runny to be real.
Scene Two: Courtney Cummz, the hotty on the front DVD cover, went right to the action with Tony T. and Chris Charming on a leather couch rather then offer up some tease footage. She was deep throating Tony's minor league shaft while Chris banged away at her pussy but they swapped out soon enough. She was energetic and earned her spot on the front cover though, inhaling whatever they had to offer and actively pumping away at them as they drove their deposits home. Her missionary position revealed some junk in her trunk that needs to be exercised away though. This had a weak ending too as Chris jerked off on her pussy after Tony dropped a load (it also looked runny). Overall though, it was well done and passionate on her part.
Scene Three: Haley Scott, a cute gal with light hair, a flowery corset and fishnet stockings (as well as stripper shoes), began her scene back on the couch as she waited for partner Van Damage to join her. She sucked him off as he fingered her pussy; each of them showing they've done this numerous times before. He did all the work when they were screwing as she whimpered and breathed hard but I doubt many of you would turn her down if she asked really nice. There was some taste testing between the positions and it also ended with a suspect pop shot to her pussy but at least he made up for it with a "second (I thought "first") pop shot jerked to her face.
Scene Four: Delilah Strong, another very attractive gal, was up next as she told the director she was going to be a bigger whore than her mother by taking two dicks in her pussy (a DPP) as she blew both Barry Scott and Van Damage in the living room. In my book, she already proved herself with the talented oral she gave both of them but I was willing to wait and see the whole act before rushing off to judgment. She was energetic enough when taking the cocks in her pussy (not award winning but better than most of the others here) and the vaunted DPP lasted long enough to prove her point although better lighting would've certainly helped display it better. At least one of the creampies looked okay this time and the scene was pretty good overall (especially compared to the other scenes).
Scene Five: Veronica Lynn, an Asian cutie with an all natural body, was up next as she bathed in the tub. Tony T. joined her and she submissively did as he required; taking his dick deep in her throat (he's not big, her throat is just small) and being his toy. If you like gals that scream things like "fuck my hole" loudly but don't otherwise move their ass/hips while being boned, she'll appeal more to you than me but fans of rougher sex will appreciate that he used her as he wanted to (with some choking and slapping). The creampie looked extremely fake but he ended it by jerking out his real load (which was completely differently textured than the creampie) on her face.
Summary: Direct Deposit had some attractive gals but none of them lived up to their potential compared to scenes made elsewhere. Axel has directed better porn in his past and this one fell flat enough that I didn't feel right giving it anything other than a rating of Skip It unless you're a slavering fanboy of one or more of the gals. I don't think Axel set out to make a DVD this bad but perhaps he had a lot of flakes or other issues arose that limited the heat of the cast. The extras weren't bad but you can do much better for your money (either at Mayhem or elsewhere) so pass this one up unless you're simply in a mood to see half baked action that doesn't seem to follow the advertised action.
