Cast: Amy Ried, Derrick Pierce, Tiffany Rayne, Lee Stone, Sasha Knox, Vivian West, Jenner, Michelle Maylene, Mark Davis, Jasmine Byrne, Nikki Nievez; Michelle Lay and Marco Banderas/Duato (last two in bonus scene only)
Length: 98.5 minutes
Dates of Production: 4/11/2006, 4/12/2006
Extras: For most people, the bonus scene from Cheating Wives Tales #2 starring Michelle Lay and Marco Banderas/Duato, will be the best extra. She played the employee at a porn video store (technically, the wife of the owner) who was entranced when performer Marco came in to browse. She recognized him and the action took off from there. It was a good ride and lasted over 30 minutes, making it worth checking out. I liked the 36.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Dik D'ahmal more though since it was related to the movie in hand and spent a lot of time with the ladies. There were interviews (Tiffany Rayne was up first too), some photoshoot material, and even a bit of sex with the nudity so it comes as no surprise that I'd enjoy it a lot. There was also a photogallery, fetish menu, and spam with a double sided DVD cover and trailers to shows like Dark Angels 2 as well.

Audio/Video Quality: Addicted Again was presented in the standard 1.33:1 ratio full frame as shot by director Miles Long for release by New Sensations. The lighting was decent once the tease sequences were finished with (each scene started out with a stylish, effects laden tribute to art porn), but some sepia or yellowish-brown filters appear to have been used to provide a certain "look" to the scenes, a look that some of you might hate. I was only irritated by the look but I wish it had been left behind as it did nothing to enhance the movie's stroke value for me or the lady I watched this one with. There was some grain and minor video noise but the overall effect did little to enhance the look of the ladies in their respective scenes. The composition of the shots, on the other hand, was often pretty solid and did make good use of the women in the scenes though I would have dropped the particular format used for the initial tease footage used for each scene. There were no compression artifacts or mosquito noise so the picture quality was decent. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English stereo with no separation on the vocals and limited dynamic range outside of the music. The majority of the time, the music dominated the vocals and this was another area in need of polishing up for future works.
Body of Review: New Sensations is the sister company to Digital Sin and often looked at as a provider of vignette driven porn flicks. They go through directors like some women go through shoes so it shouldn't surprise you that they have a new director making waves by the name of Miles Long (better known as a performer). He made a successful flick called Addicted for them and the sequel is now out at better stores called Addicted Again. The movie is a series of erotic vignettes made for those not into circus act sex or anything bizarre, just oral and vaginal pounding after some tease and masturbation action. It was a nice little effort, despite some issues with the direction I observed so here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action to give you a better idea of what the DVD contained, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Amy Ried, the hotty on the front DVD cover that has since left porn, was up first as she teased the camera outside in her flowing black lingerie (with a montage of B&W footage added in of her having sex). I can see why so many people have enjoyed her body of work, as limited as it may be, and her appeal was no less strong knowing about her departure. The tease led to her masturbating with a glass toy from Phallix (the premium glass dildo manufacturer I'm told) outdoors on the tiled deck overlooking the city when Derrick Pierce approached her. They kissed and stroked one another, leading to her massaging his penis inside of his pants. His wood was evident and she was soon sucking away on it as though it were a lollipop, but only for a moment before they switched oral roles and he gave her cookie some attention. Thankfully, the music wasn't always at the forefront of the audio track and the vocals kicked in about midway through the action as he worked over her pussy so very nicely. They screwed vaginally with her taking an active role in the matter, titties bouncing and vocals coaxing him on, before he shot his wad on her face. The image looked filtered to soften the features of the scene but otherwise, the couple made for a nice start to the movie.
Scene Two: Tiffany Rayne, one of the hottest looking gals in porn, was up next as she followed the formula on the indoor couch and the montage was interspersed with her masturbating and teasing the camera. I hope the recent rumors are false about her but I was encouraged by the fact that she was working with the massively muscular Lee Stone in the scene to keep my mind off of the possibility that she'd be out of porn for all the wrong reasons. In any case, she also used a Phallix dildo but only a little bit as she was psyched for his big cock to work on, each doing oral on the other as though they were ready to run off together. They screwed vaginally in several positions and while she didn't deepthroat him, she seemed to like the taste of his cock as she sucked and jerked on it with abandon. The ending facial was large and surprised her after she dropped to her knees to take it, marking another fine scene by this cutie that showed some nice chemistry between the performers.
Scene Three: Sasha Knox, a beautiful newcomer that has been capturing my attention with increasing frequency, and Vivian West, a skilled oralist with large implants, were up next in a scene on a loveseat with Jenner. The montage styled tease footage was not as effective here since the editing was too jumpy and the pacing substantially weaker than in the previous scenes but once the trio got rolling, they managed to follow the formula well enough that the addition of another lady seemed almost a natural, logical progression from the other scenes. The initially weakest part about it was how the ladies continued to look at the camera, no matter where it was coming from or how otherwise involved they were with there partners. Still, in terms of freshness factor alone, Sasha was very high on the scale and both gals did more than the minimum needed to maintain my interest levels. The other point I was leery about was how passive a fuck Sasha was (especially compared to Vivian's more active riding style). It wasn't a bad scene but it could have been so much better. It ended when the ladies lined up cheek to cheek (facial cheeks) and took the pop shot to their faces, showing some limited measure of chemistry though nothing like the previous pairings had offered up (too much solo action while one gal was boning Jenner).
Scene Four: Michelle Maylene, a petite little exotic gal that has been steadily elevating her stature in the porn pantheon this year, was up next with Mark Davis. The tease and montage was the same as she diddled herself with the glass toy from Phallix outside on the deck of the mansion. The thumping music didn't help much but she gave a decent show and the editing seemed more in tune with the music this time, before Mark sucked her pussy and ass. She reciprocated with a few minutes of cocksucking goodness with him having erection problems as he tapped away at her pussy. She wasn't the most active lay of the show once he did get full wood but she was better than I've seen in the past too, at least in the reverse cowgirl position. The ending facial wasn't terrible but it was clear he's been working a lot lately.
Scene Five: Jasmine Bryne, one of the hottest Latinas in porn (if not THE hottest), was up last in a lesbian scene with Belladonna clone Nikki Nievez inside the house. The range of toys they played with was slightly broader but the fact that they too looked at the camera a lot and the vocals were so downplayed that I wondered what was going through the head of director Miles Long. They licked, rubbed, sucked and fucked one another silly and both gals appeared to have some substantial chemistry with each other but I was wishing the filters were taken off the camera since the yellow tint was getting old by this point. The spark they had for the action and chemistry for each other gave the scene some replay value but it could've been much better (and I mean without me joining too). There were some heated vocals towards the end of the scene though and I hope fans of the two ladies will stick it out to see what I mean.
Summary: Addicted Again was a decent low budget effort by director Miles Long for release by New Sensations. The amount of fuck for the buck, the ladies in the cast, and the skill levels they showed combined nicely with the solid extras package to make this one worthy of being Recommended. There were some areas needing a bit more polishing up but I can say that I had a good time with Addicted Again and believe it to have a decent level of stroke and replay value. I may have to pick up a copy of Miles' previous work for the company to see if it was as good though I suppose I should point out that the BTS spoke a lot about anal sex that never took place, leaving something to be desired for those of us that watch them.
