Audio/Video Quality: Black and White was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Tim Von Swine for release by Shane's World. But for the logo on the box cover, I'd have never guessed it was a Shane's World production since the style was unlike what they've provided previously (this being a gonzo movie instead of a travelogue for example). The lighting was generally decent, limiting the grain and video noise but the composition of the shots wasn't always favorable to the cast and the editing was definitely a mixed bag. The point of view (POV) style was used from time to time but not as much as one of his dedicated titles for those who care (for that, watch the bonus scene). In all though, the flesh tones were accurate and composition of the shots favorable to capturing the heated moments of the cast as the knob slobbing proceeded in all sorts of twisted ways. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a bit of a mixture of quality too. It can be difficult getting good sound during blow bangs and Tim seemed to pay some attention here by trying to reduce the extraneous noise to a minimum.

Body of Review: Tim Von Swine is one of the rare breed in porn; he is unapologetic in stating what he likes to shoot in his porn and doesn't mince words when confronted about it. He has worked for several companies, most recently spending some quality time with the folks at Shane's World. His latest title to hit the stores is Black and White (made under the working title of Black Heat, White Hot) a generic sounding title that has been used numerous times in the past 30 years. The theme of the show was interracial scenes with black males and females hitting it with white folks, providing a diverse selection of antics that included anal in some cases. I'll be the first one to admit that the movie looked much like it could have been released at any of the major gonzo companies but seeing Shane's World expanding their boundaries is a good thing too. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were deployed here, with more than a little chemistry and heat on display for your stroking pleasure:
Scene One: Naomi, one of the industry highlights this year primarily for her bubble butt and growing skill levels in her scenes, was up first as she teased the camera in her leopard print bikini that truly helped enhance her look. She was told to masturbate a little as part of her attempt to warm up scene partner Sean Michaels as he kicked back and savored the view. This sure didn't last long as he groped her and she responded in kind, warming up really fast in order to kiss him and drop to her knees so she could provide some oral loving on the man. Her oral had an unpolished quality to it that really didn't seem to betray her professional status. That led her to sitting on his face for a little satisfaction of her own. That led to her sitting on his cock and offering an active vaginal ride, bouncing as though on fire and wiggling her rump to the beat of just one drum (her own). They performed in several positions and then moved to anal where she was decidedly less aggressive but still very talented. The scene eventually ended with the facial pop that looked like she swallowed some. The couple shared some chemistry and had a lot of energy together, making it a fine opener for the movie.
Scene Two: Candace Von, a very curvy (in a good way of course) black gal with thick legs and an all natural body, was up next as she followed the theme with both Kyle Stone and Marcos Leon in the living room. Kyle ate her out as she sucked off Marcos, swapping places to let Marcos nail her pussy as she slobbed the modest knob of Kyle. She was another active cock rider and each guy got to spend some quality time hitting her cookie as she sucked the other dry. There was some titty fucking but not as much as I would have liked given her mammoth mammaries on display. They both popped on her face to finish up and while she was energetic, the level of chemistry was only moderate even though she made up for it with some solid sexual skills on display.
Scene Three: Isabel Ice, the cute Welch gal seen on the right hand side of the front DVD cover, was in the market for some black heat to work her white hot pussy on so after she gave her interview and tease footage, she took on muscular Sledge Hammer. She stretched her fleshy ass with a toy before sitting on his face, leading her to blow him with a sense of urgency using both of her hands, her mouth, and her eye contact to elevate the heat of the scene. They then vaginal screwed really hard as she provided some fluids in the form of a squirt that hit the camera. They then moved to anal sex where she seemed to become even more active but he wasn't rock hard so there was a bit of transitional work needed before he filled her up to the best of his abilities. She wasn't as active anally but took the ending facial like it was nectar and I had to concur with Sledge's opinion that the two seemed to enjoy fucking each other.
Scene Four: Jada Fire, the curvy black gal on the left hand side of the front DVD cover, was up next as she played with herself in her white bikini as seen on the cover. If you like all natural black gals with ample curves and a reasonably fit body, you'll like her. She followed the tease and interview format of the movie and was soon working with Steve Holmes on the couch. They both did oral on the other and the penetrative sex included vaginal and anal (with some of the waterwork showmanship) but she was an oral queen thanks to the manner in which she sucked him off hard. The active riding of cock was pretty much a given thanks to her established record of doing so in numerous other scenes but I can reaffirm that she was hitting the spot here too. His wad was small this time, probably due to how much he has been working, but she seemed to appreciate every last drop and even gave him some post coital head.
Scene Five: Barbie Cummings, a healthy looking hotty with light hair and a pretty face with the kind of curves most of us can appreciate. The tease didn't last long but her partners for the scene were Tee Reel and Sean Michaels; both of them truly wanting to sandwich her in this scene that was shot when she had been in the industry a mere two weeks. They stroked and kissed her to warm her up, slowly encouraging her to drop to her knees to blow them. She had a lot more than two weeks worth of cocksucking experience and that led the men to wanting into that fine little cookie of hers. She wasn't the most active rider of the pack this time but she wasn't passive either, taking them on one at a time as she adjusted to the size issue. The anal was even tougher on her but she seemed to be enthusiastic to give up her ass to them and even did a small amount of DP before they ultimately rubbed out loads to her face that she seemed to relish. It ended the movie well enough, keeping the stroke factor pretty high.
Bonus Scene: Jada Fire, the curvy black gal on the front cover, was given a second chance to shine as she took on director Tim Von Swine on a bed with a puke green cover. The oral and vaginal were done with the usual point of view (POV) style, her working herself onto him with a modicum of enthusiasm reserved for strippers smelling green. Once upon a time, I used to goof on directors shaped like him getting the hotties like this until I realized that many of us watching porn aren't that physically different from him and that helps fuel the fantasy. It ended when she took the facial like it was no big deal, showing the guy is still longer lasting then most critics.
Summary: Black and White by director Tim Von Swine for Shane's World was a solid effort in most ways for those who like interracial gonzo sex in their porn. None of the ladies were filler quality and the men were largely up to par as well, helping to make the movie worthy of a rating of Recommended. The stroke, replay, and fuck for the buck values were all solid with the raw energy of Von Swine's usual technical skills with some fine cast to speak of too. In short, Black and White was one that you'll like if you find couples into one another having a good time on your preferred list (especially interracial couples). In all, it was fun and you'll probably appreciate it more with time too.
