Audio/Video Quality: Liquid Ass-sets was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by Chris Streams for release by 3rd Degree. The lighting was almost always handled nicely, limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house (living room and bedroom). The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies as they diddled themselves or took on their partners with a few spots in need of fill lighting but otherwise covering up most of their minor flaws. There were no compression artifacts and the fleshtones were very accurate, making this one visually appealing to me. The 2.0 stereo audio was a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could almost always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure.

Body of Review: Chris Streams is one of the most reliable gonzo directors in the market today for providing solid visuals unmarred by artistic effects, poor lighting, and heated sex scenes. He doesn't seem to craft the performances of the performers so much as provide them with their own canvass to let loose upon, often resulting in some solid scenes of depravity that work again and again. As I took a look at some of his older work recently, I picked up Liquid Ass-sets to see what I had missed when it came out earlier this year. The movie focused on anal creampies and sported a good cast of ladies working with some of the usual meat puppets. If you like such sex tricks, you'll like it even more than I did but it was pretty good nonetheless. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that it looked like all the creampies were genuine rather than the faked ones some companies use:
Scene One: Jasmine Bryne, the hot looking Latina gracing the front DVD cover, was up first as she teased the camera in her purple bikini as it rode up her ass crack. Her tease was fantastic (or was it "fant-ASS-tic"?) and the lucky mope to tap this babe was none other than fellow director Pat Myne (though I got the feeling Chris wanted her really bad). Putting her DSLs to good use, she sucked away on Pat's pipe with a sense of abandon, providing all of her attention to working him over in a most stimulating manner. This led to an active round of pussy banging and eventually to a somewhat less engaging anal ride. She did taste testing and learned to pick up the pace when on top of him, resulting in the anal creampie advertised on the cover that ran out of her backside towards the end. I saw no cut away edits at the end and I believed it was a real creampie in the heated scene.
Scene Two: Lucy Lee, a foreign brunette with a lean figure and attractive face, was up next as she followed the general formula. While curvier than most super models, she had the kind of face that most men would fight over, and while her tease wasn't as effective as Jasmine's, it wasn't bad. Her partners for the scene were David Perry and Toni Ribas, after Chris talked her through the preliminaries. She liked to suck cock and gave it a lot of effort, soon moving to the men taking turns screwing her pussy and ass. The pounding thrusts worked both ways as she impaled herself soundly regardless of where she was taking the cocks, culminating in a DP that had her hanging on for dear life more than anything. They ended the scene by depositing their seed in her ass, one at a time to be squeezed out.
Scene Three: Nikki Nieves, a gal that could be Belladonna's kid sister from her looks, was up next as she toyed with a metal dildo on the couch. I would have liked seeing more tease than masturbation but this was interrupted by Mark Davis all too soon as well, offering up his cock for oral treatment by the young performer. She concentrated on sucking him without any hands used, becoming his virtual cock socket as she choked down as much meat pipe as possible. It was almost like a game between them with regard to how much oral she could do but they changed gears and started banging away like happy little bunnies right after that. The emphasis was on oral and anal here; with Nikki getting more into the anal as time marched on. She may not be a calendar gal but as far as a wild ride, she enjoyed herself to the point where she didn't really care how much she farted as he pummeled her behind to leave a large gape. He openly popped his load into her gape for her to fart out, ending a decent ride.
Scene Four: Julie Silver, a skinny gal with light hair and a sexy bikini, was up next as she took on Mick Blue and Steve Holmes using the same formula. Her tease was not bad but far from the most satisfying of the show with the goofy red hat getting in the way of her facial expressions (I like to see their eyes to determine how much they are into the sex). The tease might've been weak but what about her sex skills you ask? Well, she had seen a lot of cocks plundering her mouth, pussy, and ass by the looks of it and Chris gave her a watery orgasm (that sprayed the camera) with his hand but much of the sex seemed to be mechanical to me. I don't mind this when they show some spark at times but she was going through the motions from the first lick of their tootsie pops to the DP to the anal unloading of their semen. If you like the kind of foreign frauleins that Private used to use (and dump after wearing them out), she'll appeal to you more than she did to me here (and I've seen her tear up the screen more than a few times in the past).
Scene Five: Sharka Blue, an extremely sexy gal that has been popular of late, was up in the next scene as she skipped the tease (bad idea) to work straight with Erik Everhard. He can in wearing his Wanted List T-shirt, and went down on her as she diddled herself on the bed, soon followed by her providing some of her patented power sucking oral. Her limits were pushed as he drilled her in his infamous manner, going non-stop in her pussy and ass as she tried to catch her breath. If you've ever seen Erik in one of his trance-fucks (as I sometimes refer to them), you'll know why I think he's one of the best director/studs on the current top of the market. The scene ended as expected and fans of wrecked rectums will appreciate how sore she must've been for a few days after this scene.
Summary: Liquid Ass-sets showed that director Chris Streams can compete with the best of them in terms of providing some of the more extreme sex acts and his lack of reliance on big name contract stars is one of the reasons why so many fans seem to find his work a cut above the pack. For the amount of fuck for the buck, technical values, casting choices and overall heated performances, this one earned a rating of Recommended, even if there were some rough spots to the show. Fans of anal creampies will find this one a winner more than anyone else but the ladies were a diverse selection of talented gals too so I doubt you'll be left wanting if using this as a stroke flick.
