Cast: Marie Luv, LT, Ariel Alexas, Olivia Winters, Vanessa Blue, Alayah Sashu, Coco Pink, Jazmine Cashmere, Kitten; Jada Fire (bonus scene only)
Length: 142 minutes
Date of Production: 7/22/2006
Extra's: Most fans will appreciate the bonus scene between Jada Fire and LT from Sugarwalls Black Tales as being the best extra. The scene lasted 26 minutes and will appeal to fans of black on black gonzo pairings. I also liked the nearly 7.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Vanessa Blue (who worked the camera for the scenes too) since it had some of the ladies looking ready to rumble in terms of their scenes but also sporting some attitude with those on the set as well. There was also a moderate length photogallery, a $5 coupon for Elegant Angel's new video on demand (VOD) service, spam, a double sided DVD cover, and trailers to shows like Big Wet Asses 7, Big Wet Tits 3, Squirt In My Gape, Greatest Asswhores Ever, Big Wet Asses, Slave Dolls 2, It's A Daddy Thing 2 and others. There was also a short, 2 minute long, bit of extra footage in the form of an Easter Egg (click on the company logo on the first page) with two ladies and a guy.
Audio/Video Quality: Up That Black Ass was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director LT for distribution by Elegant Angel. The camera work was better than average this time with plentiful lighting to mostly eliminate grain, video noise and shadows. Vanessa Blue was working the camera in most scenes, showing she still had some solid talents on both sides of the screen to impress the fans. I saw no compression artifacts and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers better than some of his peers in the field. There were a few rough edges in need of polishing up and LT has a way to go before he reaches the skill level of Nutsack, Collins, or others at the company; but it was a solid effort on technical skills alone. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases with the music sounding pleasant enough.

Body of Review: LT has been a meat puppet for long enough that his recent shot at directing came as no surprise. Joining the ranks of so many that have used Elegant Angel as a launching pad for such careers, he focuses his efforts on urban or "black" porn where he enjoys the pleasures of the curvier, darker variety, following a formula that has him sucking ass before the ladies give up their goodies to him. The movie title was Up That Black Ass and starred some of the finest ladies of color with the added benefit of lovely Vanessa Blue on camera. That said, here's a quick look at the scenes by action and cast, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Marie Luv, the tall, lean black gal well known in the industry was up first as she pranced about in her skimpy pink and black bikini, accentuated by her fishnet stockings. It didn't take long before LT was sucking her ass and diddling her as she used dirty talk to encourage him to continue. He pulled out a toy for her to play with and she was soon riding it on the living room floor while he pulled his pud on the couch nearby. It looked a little awkward and she was having trouble keeping it inside of her but her desire for the real thing kept her going, even as she sucked him off fairly aggressively. He then took her anally as she cried out for more, boning her in several positions, complete with ATM, with her showing some moderately active riding skills in a few positions. The scene ended when he popped into her mouth, swallowing some of the spew as the camera faded away.
Scene Two: Ariel Alexas, a black gal with a curvier body and appealing look, followed the basic formula as she walked into the living room wearing a similarly tiny outfit and LT worked her orally with a concentration on her ass. She masturbated for him with some nice tease after that, leading to the same toy coming out for a short session of diddling. She also used a clear anal probe but that didn't last long as she was in need of cock, sucking him off slowly to get him ready to play. He might not be the biggest cock in the business but she seemed enthusiastic about blowing him, leading to a much more active vaginal ride this time. She bounced on his cock and I have to admit that I liked her fleshier ass and powerfully built legs much more than Marie's lean physique. This eventually led to some anal with her on top, titties bouncing, calling out some dirty talk as she continued to show some talent for riding his meat stick. It ended with a facial but she closed her eyes like it was toxic waste, thankfully giving some post coital head to make up for her grimace.
Scene Three: Olivia Winters, Vanessa Blue, and LT, were up next after a barely dressed Olivia came knocking on his door. She didn't look too happy but she was there to pay a debt and didn't have all of the money so he offered to work something out to make up the remaining $80. That led into the formula of him eating her curvy behind but it didn't last as long before she was sucking him off. Her skimpy outfit appealed and she was physically appealing enough but I'm not going to kid you when I say that I was more interested in seeing even hotter, curvier Vanessa join the mix. She had a fishnet outfit on that showcased that superior ass of hers, sitting on his face as Olivia blew him. Vanessa's dirty talk was great and the renewed dynamic showed both women off better with Vanessa riding him even better as Olivia switched places with her. This continued with both gals alternating on his rod, Vanessa taking him in her sweet ass but by then Olivia had peeled off the two and sat alone to masturbate. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load to Vanessa's face, Olivia looking on in envy until some kissing gave her a taste.
Scene Four: Alayah Sashu, wearing a short black dress that showed the junk in her trunk, was up next playing an escort that LT called over to his place. The tease footage as she climbed the stairs was decent but too short, leading to him orally satisfying her as he did the others. They went downstairs where she stripped, soon blowing him for about two sucks before climbing her all natural body onto his. Her ass was plentiful and she seemed to be able to pump it a little bit but not quite as actively as some of her peers in the movie; at least until she warmed up. At that point, she started getting freaky on cock but slowed down again when they negotiated the anal sex on the couch where he did all of the work. The scene ended with an anal creampie that she shat out but circus act sex tricks don't impress me much since I'd rather she learn the basics first. Still, it wasn't a bad scene, just less fulfilling than some of the others.
Scene Five: Coco Pink, looking like a mean bitch as the loud Nutsack-esque music played in the background, played an irritated neighbor who didn't like how loud the music played by LT in his hotel room suite. They worked out a deal where both of them would be happy, him going right for her butt orally in the bedroom. She had a round rump that he obviously couldn't resist and that led to her blowing him well enough on her knees. When riding on top of him, she was active enough but that ended when they switched positions and especially when they did the anal. It looked like it hurt her so he reverted into the pussy until he rubbed out a load to her face. It was the most like a filler scene of the whole batch for me.
Scene Six: Jazmine Cashmere, a beautiful gal with nice curves, Kitten, and LT were up last as Jazmine and LT started while he watched his Black Wet Asses 4 DVD. I liked Jazmine's look though she'd be even sexier without all the ink on her fine body so it was a good idea that she distracted with her oral skills. I wondered why he wasn't immediately sucking on her ass but he got a taste before the phone rang; leading to Kitten joining the pair in the living room. She was thick as well and both gals joined in on giving up the oral pleasure as well as riding him with their pussies and asses. The vaginal was more active for both of them and they seemed to relish the taste of pussy as well as cock but it was an interesting scene with some fair dirty talk and decent replay value, elevating the movie a bit in the process. It ended when he jerked his load to their titties but it was a small load and the post coital sucking didn't make it any larger.
Summary: Up That Black Ass was a decent directing effort by LT for Elegant Angel. The quality of the ladies, the action, and the technical values all made Up That Black Ass worthy of being rated as Recommended thanks also due to the levels of stroke and replay value, making me wonder what tricks LT has up his sleeve for his next release. I was surprised that the menu page wouldn't allow for scene by scene access (a coding error from the looks of it) but the mastering of DVDs is generally handled better than that by the company but this minor quirk really didn't hurt the DVD that much, just struck me as a flaw in the quality control program of Elegant Angel reminiscent of days gone by.
