Audio/Video Quality: Jules Jordan's Black Owned was presented in the visually less appealing 1.33:1 full frame color (than his recent release with Jenna Haze) as originally shot by director Jules Jordan for distribution by his own company, Jules Jordan Video. The lighting was presented in a very pleasing manner that lit up the action in most scenes very well. There were a few scenes where this wasn't the case but that was almost certainly due to Jules providing a more realistic setting for thematic results. So, in the scenes where the lighting was flat and strong; the picture was better than anything of Jules that I've watched to date. The scenes where the lighting couldn't be provided that way were still well lit for the circumstances but admittedly not optimal for seeing the action as clearly as some fans, myself included, would like. The grain and video noise were both better than usual, marking another positive visual improvement by Jules that was complimented by the compositional work Jules offered up that repeatedly enhanced the look of the cast. There were no noticed compression artifacts and while the picture wasn't the best gonzo I've seen; it was somewhat better than I expected. I wonder what future releases using one of the true high definition formats (Blu-Ray of HD-DVD) will do for the quality of the picture given his recent improvements over past works. The audio was presented in a stereo 2.0 Dolby Digital offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was a lot of potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Jules could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theatres in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Body of Review: Jules Jordan is a porn prophet to many fans for the way he was able to revitalize Evil Angel with his efforts for them in the last several years. He seemed to be able to take even the lamest performer, process her through the Jules Jordan style, and end up with a decidedly better performance than most expected. Had he done this a couple of times, no one would've paid any notice to him but he seemed capable of transforming some mediocre gals into wanton sluts of infinite desire in a way that turned many heads. Granted, there were those who never really cared for his style and I was a late comer to his work myself, learning to appreciate him more as time passed and I looked past his technical limitations. Well, now that he's at his own company and distributing his own titles, he's showing a renewed sense of what makes his libido tick, and his latest offering to the fans is Jules Jordan's Black Owned, a collection of brand new interracial scenes by some of the most talented ladies in porn. If you like the cast and have been a fan of Jules, you're going to like this one too, especially since it clocked in so close to the advertised "over 3 ˝ hours" mentioned on the front DVD cover. Here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast and action, noting that the men weren't credited but I'm acquainted with most of them so I felt comfortable listing them here (with no condoms used either for those who care):
Scene One: Julia Bond, playing a gorgeous construction worker handling the renovations of Jules' house, was up first in her tiny outfit by the pool. She's featured on the lower right hand side of the front DVD cover and Jules was smart enough to capture lots of appealing shots of her fine ass as she climbed the staircase on the bright sunny day. Looking for a "nice big tool" she found Mandingo (who looked amazingly like a guy named Fred Foolish I met awhile back…cough) and dropped to her knees to start sucking him off like a champion in no time; showing a level of playfulness that told me she enjoyed her work. While she couldn't deepthroat him, it was a nice start to the action and he helped warm her up orally too. Due to the size of his tool, she wasn't able to take all of it inside her either and her initial ride was too passive but she warmed up to do some booty dropping on his shaft in cowgirl (though slowing down when he started poking actively). The vocals were solid from her and she did some good PTM work, ending the scene with a healthy facial. I thought she had fun, displayed a moderate amount of energy, and looked as hot as ever but she was definitely a bit overwhelmed by his size in terms of what she could handle, weakening the scene a bit for me (it had some good replay value but not as much as if she was working with someone more size appropriate for her skills).
Scene Two: Jayna Oso, another hot Latina with a curvy body, was wearing her pink fishnets and fishnet stockings as she lounged on the chair outside by the pool to tease the camera. Her visual appeal was nothing short of awesome too and she went inside to work with four black men; Brian Pumper, Brock Adams, Ace, and one other guy-perhaps Lee Bang (it really wouldn't hurt to label the men Jules!). They pounced on her body by fingering her and shoving their cocks down her willing throat; with her proving capable of deepthroating them fairly well. She had a few extra pounds from when I last saw her in action, a fact not lost on Jules either (even advertising it on the cover), and the initial blowbang was pretty solid by most standards. She proceeded to ride them with a decent amount of energy, sucking off others as a few poked that pussy of hers. This led to some anal from her, with a DP as the pinnacle of the heated action, her showing some taste testing along the way. She ended the scene by inhaling their cocks enthusiastically, marking the scene as a very strokable one with plenty of replay value. Whew!
Scene Three: Sativa Rose, a third hot Latina gal as featured on the upper left hand corner of the front DVD cover, had the tease in the living room in her nasty little outfit, showing off her goodies to Jules who seemed to be cranking out a load as he watched. Her dick sucking lips (DSLs) were hungry and her seductive manner sure seemed ready to be unleashed (though Mr. Marcus attached one to her collar) and Nate Turnher seemed ready to jump her bones as much as his pal did. She sucked them off energetically and aside from too much awareness of the camera, she got increasingly into the action as the scene continued. The blowjobs weren't the usual sloppy kind and after leading her up the stairs, they began taking turns drilling her fine pussy from behind (as well as other positions). She wasn't as active as I've seen her in other scenes but she came across as being in lust with their meat, keeping the levels of heat up higher than they would've been had she just mechanically rode them as some in the industry do. She did a lot of oral throughout the scene and ended the action with them coating her face with semen, preventing her from seeing anything after that.
Scene Four: Leah Luv, the little boyish bleach blonde on the lower left hand corner of the front DVD cover, was the first scene of the second disc. Her youthful look is certainly going to be appealing to some of you though I prefer the curves of women like those featured on the first disc myself. She followed the general formula by teasing the camera, this time indoors by the glass banister of the upstairs. In her favor, her ass is starting to flesh out and as one of the few anal gals of the movie (more of an anal princess in my way of thinking), she added a slightly different dynamic to the action. Her partner was the talented Brian Pumper and I was glad that she stuck with a single guy to focus her efforts on rather than take on too many at the same time as others did. She was immediately drawn to the large bulge in his pants and began feeling him up before going down on him in a slow, seductive manner. At one point, he took control and started to forcibly throatfuck her but the oral action was always better when she took care of him willingly and at her own pace. They boned vaginally for a bit and then after stretching out her ass with a glass anal plug (and some technical DP action), they started doing anal with glee. She was far too passive during the penetrative sex but I doubt that'll matter to her fans or those into the body type she possesses. It ended when she jerked him off all over her face, leaving a pearl necklace and eye shot in the pop shot's wake.
Scene Five: Alexis Malone, an attractive gal with womanly curves as displayed on the middle of the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she teased the camera in her bluish white & black lingerie. The scene was advertised as her first black encounter and Mr. Marcus was just the guy to break her in. I have to admit that her fine ass was particularly appealing to me but she has long been a package deal with a lot of balance to her genetic fineness worthy of more than she has been allowed to do on camera in the past. The tease alone proved boner inducing for me but she also seemed enthusiastic about giving him a sloppy blowjob; working him over with both hands, her tongue, mouth and eyes. The ball sucking made him happy and while she wasn't able to deepthroat him, she was especially attentive to what he wanted as she worked that huge meatpipe of his orally. This led to one of the most active vaginal rides of the movie, grinding her hips and pumping on him so hard that he had to slow her down before losing his load prematurely. Whenever she was on top, the ride was sweet and she took care of him in the other positions too, marking the scene as a highlight of the flick. It ended when he rubbed out a load to her mouth, with her sucking it down greedily as she toyed with him right up until the camera faded away. Yum!
Scene Six: Lisa Ann, a curvy brunette with some mileage under her belt, was seen on the upper right hand corner of the front DVD cover. She played Jules' secretary and came in wearing a black business suit, coming back with his water while wearing a satiny pink & black outfit that truly enhanced her look substantially. This worked for Sean Michaels, who had started the scene talking about appreciating women over the teens so many others focus their efforts on. As Sean felt her up, she leaned again Jules' trophy case in a not so subtle attempt to show off some of the deserved accolades from his peers. She then aggressively sucked him off and he moaned in pleasure with him reciprocating nicely as he fondled her and kissed her neck. She bent over and he took over to give her a bone of his own. They screwed actively with both of them engaging the other with lots of energy. She may not have been my first choice as a reason for picking up the DVD set but she was certainly one of the top performers of the day. It ended with a titty fuck and some oral, giving her face the coating it deserved. Yes!
Scene Seven: Tiffany "Trouble" Holiday, the gal on the upper half of the left hand side of the front cover, was up last in a scene with Mandingo after she teased Jules in the hallway. I didn't find her all that physically appealing and her tease session seemed forced to me but I gave her a chance to prove my initial instincts wrong about her. There was limited oral on his rod (a good thing since she didn't seem capable of handling more than an inch or two) before she started the vaginal sex. The first few positions were really lame as she acted like he was too large for her skill level. She did turn up the heat a bit to bounce on his rod (pumping like crazy as she spewed lots of dirty talk) but it was done in such a way as to limit how deeply he could go into her. I'll give her credit in that she eventually got him inside of her most of the way but even with her skillful PTM, she never grabbed me as being into the action so much as putting on a show. It ended with the mouth pop and she gargled with it before swallowing it down but the scene seemed to lack any spark of chemistry between the pair so it was the closest one to a filler the set had to offer.
Summary: Jules Jordan's Black Owned proved that director Jules Jordan still has what it takes to make the fans happy with a pleasing set of interracial scenes that had some solid replay value. The levels of fuck for the buck aside, most of the ladies were a bit out of their league which may actually make this one more appealing to those of you wanting to see their limits pushed past their comfort zone. I feel obligated to tell you that I'm not a believer of interracial porn per se (we're all the same race folks, no matter what some sociologists might tell you) but some of the men were able to provide especially good performances her, including Mr. Marcus, Sean Michaels, and Brian Pumper to name a few. If you're looking for lots of circus act sex or abusive antics, look elsewhere but I thought that the title was worth a rating of Recommended or better, depending on how much you enjoy the type of genre this one addressed.
