Audio/Video Quality: Filthy's First Taste 2 was presented in the same 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Cezar Capone/Azi Zan (this time using the credited alias of Bill Diesel in the ending credits) for release by Club Jenna under their new affiliation with Filthy Films. For those of you familiar with the director, he was one of the founders of the wildly successful Bang Bros before moving on, and I strongly suspect he still shoots for a number of other companies at this writing (based on his voice and the look of similar productions elsewhere). Unlike the high gloss, glamour porn you'll usually find at Club Jenna, the ladies used for this line, as well as the production values, were a decidedly drastic change of pace, but still a considerable upgrade from the original production values under the Bang Bros label. Like the first volume in the series, the camera was a bit shaky at times, the lighting below average for a mainstream porno but substantially more consistent than he was used to offering, and the result was arguably the best of both worlds for those sick and tired of the same old look found at Club Jenna. In the truest sense of the term, this was "Alt-Porn" as in an alternative to the generic gonzo so commonly found but also providing better production values then you'll see on the mostly low end Pro-Am market too. The issues with fleshtones being off, video noise, and other minor problems were not enough to dissuade me from continuing to watch it, largely thanks to the amount of raw energy projected by many of the cast. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English but it sounded like it came straight off the built in camcorder microphone, often picking up ambient street noise better then the vocals on the cast engaging in sexual acts right in front of it. By turning up the volume on my home theatre set up, all I did was increase the noise levels faster so this is definitely an area in need of work for future volumes in the series.

Body of Review: Cezar Capone has directed porn under several names over the years but his recent work for Club Jenna was a decidedly better version of his style, enhanced with better levels of technical skill and generally better women as well. His latest release for the company is Filthy's First Taste 2, the sequel to Filthy's First Taste 1, and a movie I gave a sneak peek to in a recent Blue Room column. I liked the movie then and I still do as Cezar and his associates pick up relatively inexperienced ladies to have sex on camera, using the style he made famous with his work for Bang Bros. Keeping in mind that raw energy and newcomer freshness were the prime focal points of the show, I think many fans will appreciate this as an alternative to guys like Ed Powers who induct ladies into the business in more boring fashion, typically finding the ladies on the nearby beach (the scenes are shot in Miami Beach, Florida) or at local shopping areas. If this still interests you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condom were used:
Scene One: Ellie Idol, the cute brunette featured on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up first as the guys picked her up walking out of a CVS pharmacy. The usual scam was applied and Jordan Ashley was the lucky guy to tap into her assets. Her pretty eyes, all natural body, and pleasing features made her a wise selection to go first in this follow up volume of the series. Her oral was slightly mechanical but managed to make me think she was truly a first timer in front of the camera, yet not cock shy in the slightest. There was some slow tease on the black couch after that and the couple went to plowing her pussy as both seemed to actively participate and enjoy each other. I know the scenarios are faked but it worked for me as they showed considerable chemistry together with her always having a good time. Frankly, I'd like to see more of this lady in action, even if I tend to favor gals with more pronounced curves, thanks in large part to how much she threw herself into the action with a sense of abandon. As the scene progressed, they moved throughout the house and he popped a big load on her face, including a nut to her eye.
Scene Two: Lia Lopez, a Latina not shown on the front cover (the only gal like that by the way), was up next as the scenario stuff was skipped in favor of a straightforward scene in the apartment with her sporting a thong and tube top. I've seen her before but only once and she said that this was her first scene with a guy as she followed directions and teased the camera in the living room. While not as cute as Ellie, she had a similar appeal in terms of looks, body, and fresh attitude; all of which pleased scene partner Jordan Ashley as she told the director how ready she was for the scene to begin. They felt each other up before she slobbed his knob, seeking some population pudding to quench her thirst. That led to her bouncing on his cock in several positions with a sense of urgency that really worked, not like many established performers who simply lie back and let the guy do all the work. Her ass cheeks rippled nicely and she spoke Spanish several times, employing some of the limited vocabulary I picked up over the years that would get my youthful face slapped if said in mixed company. Her physiological responses clearly indicated her arousal though she clamped her eyes shut during the facial. His pop was limited this time too but it continued to impress me that the newness factor was largely in evidence, even if the pick up portion of the movie was truncated.
Scene Three: Kinzy Jo, the blonde on the upper left hand corner of the front DVD cover, was up next in what was claimed as her first scene, starting off in the condo on the couch (again, no pick up lines). She had a lot of freckles and struck me as a coed type from the beach, soon stripping off her clothing to reveal a smooth bottom as Cezar put it, complying with all of his directions as she was showcased nicely. By this point, I was a bit tweaked that the scenarios were dropped and in her case, I was sure that I had watched her numerous times over the last few years but she was cute and I didn't want to let a few facts ruin my enjoyment of the scene. Her partner was a moper by the name of Ramon, a guy with a larger than average package that appealed to her. She worked him over and displayed a knowledge of positions that even Cezar remarked on during the scene, providing more polish to her act largely as a result of her experience. I know some people buying the DVD might be less than thrilled that it wasn't truly her first time but her performance was better than average as she rode the cock in her mouth and pussy really actively, admittedly finding his rod a lot to handle. Heck, it even looked like she tried to zone out and accommodate him better and the scene ended with her smiling as he rubbed out a load to her face.
Scene Four: Jennifer Arcadia, the brunette on the lower right hand corner of the cover, revived the theme as the men picked the 18 year old up on the beach. The return to the pick up portion aspect of the movie elevated the rating back up a bit for me as I think it adds some fun to the scenes. Jordan Ashley was the meat puppet again and aside from a lack of following her to the condo (camera getting butt shots and the like have always been a good idea to me), it was a nice way to showcase this newcomer. She was shy and didn't seem like the stripper type of gal so often used in these types of scenes, with the kind of petite body many of you like. I was surprised here when she initially skipped the blowjob and went right to him porking her, making me wonder if something was cut after not working out too well. She let him do the work and I got the distinctive impression that she was very new as she passively took what he had to offer, satisfying the theme of the movie a lot more than Kinzy's scene (for example) but coming across as having the inherent weakness of the genre too. It ended with a "got milk" mustache and she seemed to be uncomfortable during the scene.
Scene Five: Haylo, the blonde on the upper right hand corner of the cover (her name derived either as a take off of pop singer J-Lo or a misspelling of the angelic circle that adorns my head...lol), was up next as Jay/JT went out to prowl at night with camerawoman Cindy. She wore the cover outfit and it was done at night as they picked her up at a local gas station, Cindy assisting Jay with picking the gal up before they went back to the house. The red couch served as the specific location where the couple (Cindy did not participate) got together, Haylo's all natural body and demeanor looking like it came straight out of a strip club. He ate her out with the expected results (she liked it) and she started working his cock in her mouth like a seasoned veteran while he fingered her. Her oral was slow but sweet and led to her really impaling herself on his cock vaginally, crying out as she did so in fact, in a few positions. This scene seemed to be the shortest of the bunch and wasn't the best the movie had to offer but her energy levels were reasonably high and I enjoyed watching them do one another. The lighting seemed too low here (more so then the others) and the camera work was markedly different, but it was otherwise fairly interesting to watch. The nut pop went to her face and chest, displaying her pretty eyes one last time before the credits rolled.
Summary: Filthy's First Taste 2 by director Cezar Capone for Club Jenna was more of a mixed bag than the first volume in the series but there was a lot to really like here as well so I rated it as Recommended. The majority of women did not look like the glamorous porn star types many of us are used to and the technical matters advanced a little in favor of polished scenes, with a relative lack of extras being one of the few anchors holding the DVD back. I still can't get over how different this series is from the usual offerings of Club Jenna but that's a decidedly good thing given how much gloss goes on in their usual efforts. In short, Filthy's First Taste 2 was another taste of the good stuff that director Cezar Capone has to offer and I hope the rest of his repertoire holds up as nicely as this one has so far.
