Cast: Amy Ried, Mark Ashley, Lisa Ann, Mark Davis, Sarah Twain, Steve Holmes, Tiffany Taylor, Ben English, Naomi, Manuel Ferrara
Length: 142.5 minutes
Dates of Production: 10/28/2005 to 6/6/2006
Extra's: The best extra was the 20.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed the ladies before, during, and after their scenes. The anecdotes were short but there was extra sex and nudity, making it work for me and my tastes (and the hotty make up gal was present less than usual though). There was also a photogallery, a cumshot recap, a true double sided DVD cover, and trailers to movies like Crack Addict 5, Swallow the Leader 3, Hand to Mouth 3, About Face 3, Hand To Mouth 3, Tits Ahoy 3, and Asswhole 3.
Audio/Video Quality: Filthy 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 some compression artifacts and the fleshtones were very accurate, making this one visually appealing to me even if not the best I've seen from Chris in the recent past. 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. There was also a dubbed Spanish track as an alternative if you really have the craving to see bad dubbing on a porno.

Body of Review: Third Degree is a company dedicated to providing porn that fans can stroke off to without all the bells and whistles or artistic lameness that you might have noticed enjoying a renaissance at some companies. As such, fans have sought out their consistently best directors like Chris Streams and honored him by singling him out as someone they can trust to deliver the goods. His latest movie is Filthy, a series of heated gonzo scenes where the cast were given some basic steps to follow for the enjoyment of each other and with the fan in mind, with some of the best talent in the business. If this sounds good to you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used at all:
Scene One: Amy Ried, the dirty looking gal on the front DVD cover, was up first as she posed in front of the window in her cover ensemble. Amy has currently left porn for greener pastures but I have to tell you that as her later movies come out, she sure has shown a nasty streak that fans are just now finding out about. I wish her well in whatever she chooses to do, noting that I'll continue to check out the scenes of hers that eclipse her early work in so many ways that the comparisons are almost meaningless. The tease here was really well done and after she warmed up, she took on Mark Ashley, slobbing his knob with a combination of energy and enthusiasm that were well placed at the front of the flick. The oral was sweet but her vaginal riding was even better as she pushed back when penetrated, allowing her ass cheeks to ripple so tenderly, in all positions showing her active nature. The couple had chemistry and she loved to blow him and do PTM between positions, eventually jerking out a load onto her breasts. Whew!
Scene Two: Lisa Ann, a curvy brunette that is still making her triumphant comeback to the industry, remarked in the BTS feature how she hadn't done scene partner Mark Davis in over ten years on camera. I know many fans of porn like the flavor of the week, brand new performers but a gal like Lisa makes one stand up and pause (or at least stand erect and pause) due to the manner in which she proves time and again that desirability doesn't stop at 25 years of age. I may never get used to her implants but her skill with a meat pipe, positive attitude, and wanton nature all contribute to making her a show stopper (or perhaps a ball drainer considering this is porn) so I was psyched up to check out her latest scene. The tease was fine and her oral skills have never been better. That led to him returning the oral favor on her and then screwing her as he kissed her feet. The active screwing by both of them resulted in her face and chest being covered by semen but she always appeared to be in charge of the fun and the couple both appeared to get off.
Scene Three: Sarah Twain, an all natural brunette with a lean body and dominatrix outfit showing her status, took charge of Steve Holmes in the bedroom with her riding crop smacking him as needed. She sat on his face too and he appeared to relish the thought of serving her needs, though she jacked him off with her feet for a bit of diversity. Once it came time to suck him off, she showed a measure of skill but this was clearly not her forte as she came off liking the vaginal riding much more. She did PTM and then ATM after he poked and prodded her pucker but the anal sex was a little more than she could comfortably handle from the looks of it. The scene ended as expected with her jerking him off into her awaiting mouth, never losing control of him as she stared at his cock.
Scene Four: Tiffany Taylor, a gorgeous brunette with pretty eyes and a figure that got some major buzz when DVD Talk spotlighted her recently, was up next with studly Ben English after she teased in the living room on the couch. Her looks alone are enough for many fans but her skills were in fine form as she inhaled his pecker like her mouth was his personal cock socket. The oral was sweet but her vaginal riding skills managed to be even better as she bounced on his lap rapidly, with her titties bouncing and her appearing to get lost in the moment. The best position for them was the reverse cowgirl but even in the others, she seemed able to project a sense of heat and chemistry with Ben that elevated the quality of the scene more than a little bit. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load all over the place, much of it landing on her face, and the camera faded away.
Scene Five: Naomi, the gal best known for breaking through this year by virtue of her splendidly round ass, was up last with Manuel Ferrara. The formula was the same but she has been practicing her tease routine and refining it to new heights, a case in point being this scene here. He ate her ass first and was totally into it with her returning the favor by sucking his dick and balls to the point where most of us would've popped really quickly. The only thing I didn't like about her blowjob was how short it was before she climbed on top of his penis to ride him vaginally, getting into the action very quickly but not using her vocals to full effect. The two did a lot more positions and intermittent oral on one another before the anal sex took place; Manuel plugging away as she pushed back on his rod as it plunged deep inside her rectum. This continued for a very long time but none of the footage seemed like filler material to me, him launching his payload by rubbing his cock between her ass cheeks all over her lower back. This was a very solid scene to close out on, marking it as a winner.
Summary: Filthy was another title from Third Degree that earned a rating of Recommended for the quality of casting, the levels of fuck for the buck, and the technical excellence that helped convey the performances at their best. Not all of the ladies were equally talented but the worst of the lot was still better than average and it became clear to me that Filthy was a cut above the pack in several ways. From newcomer Amy, to rising anal princess Naomi, to the seasoned skills of Lisa, there was a lot of solid fucking going on and the extras didn't hurt either. Give it a look and you'll find a lot to like for a reasonable price, though it was not the top pick from the company of late.
