Cast: Velicity Von, Isabel Ice, Benjamin Bratt, Jamie Elle, John Strong, Brian Surewood, Buster Good, Chris Charming, Talon, Ginger Lee, Michael Stefano, Kitty, Steve Taylor
Length: 134 minutes
Date of Production: 6/8/2006
Extra's: The best extra was easily the 13 minute Behind the Scenes feature. It was clearly shot by at least two directors (Jake Malone having the more immediately recognizable voice) and surprisingly offered up some footage of Jamie barfing a few times (totally gross but rare in a title shot at PXP). There was also some interview footage, some nudity, and a few anecdotes but it had shock value too. There was a pop shot recap from the scenes, a photogallery, and a second side to the DVD cover (albeit one with covers only).
Audio/Video Quality: T&A Buffet was presented in the original 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by Jake Malone, David Luger, and Martin Del Toro for release by Platinum X Pictures. The lighting on the scenes was generally decent, limiting the grain, video noise, and other problems associated with the element but it wasn't the best work any of them had done either. The composition of the camera angles varied; at times making the ladies look their best and at other times doing a poor job, perhaps something that editing missed. In any case, I can see why no one wanted directing credit for the movie as a whole as it comes across as a collection of discarded scenes shot for various other releases that ended up together by default (not what I've come to expect from PXP). The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with no separation and limited dynamic range to speak of. I could hear most of the vocals (including those off camera that probably weren't supposed to be heard) but audio was not a major consideration in this one (IMHO).

Body of Review: Jake Malone, David Luger, and Martin Del Toro all worked for Platinum X Pictures a number of times as directors, making some very heated porn over the last few years. Each of them has moved on to other pursuits from what I've seen, Jake landing a spot at the vaunted Evil Angel in the process. Well, before the men left, they each left a number of scenes to unfinished projects, these scenes being compiled recently in uncredited form under various titles. The latest to make it to me was T&A Buffet, sporting a great cover and some pretty good work too. The four scenes were all gonzo with some fetish, tease, and numerous sex acts but they were not consistently hot. If you're still interested, here's a brief glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Velicity Von, the hotty on the front DVD cover, and equally appealing Isabel Ice, were up first as they laid out by the pool on a perfect day wearing fetish attire (including fishnets, ball gags, and collars). Jake was directing them as they played with each other, acting rough and enjoying the action enough to demand harder antics. Once they were thoroughly warmed up, they walked inside (arm in arm at that) to meet Benjamin Bratt on the couch. The ladies sucked him hard, licked his balls, and rimmed his ass as they looked at the camera for acceptance. There was deepthroating, titty fucking, and a lot more oral antics to prepare the trio for a mean bit of boning; resulting in his going all out to tap into them. There was anal with ATM, face sitting, and a number of positions, the ladies providing active rides for the most part. Jake interjected with comments from time to time and the ladies even went so far as to do technical DP's when they whipped out the dildos to masturbate (with Ben drilling them a little). In all, the quality of the scene was uneven and any minor league squirting only added to the circus act nature of the sex. He blew a moderate load of mope squad population pudding to end the scene, the gals cumswapping to close it out (with some pool antics serving as tease to add some heat).
Scene Two: Jamie Elle, a cutie looking very appealing as her ass ate her shorts, was outside looking for a dog (Kayla) when John Strong, Brian Surewood, Buster Good, Chris Charming, and Talon, heard her in their back yard. They were swapping pussy stories and sent Brian outside to coax Jamie inside, with him telling her he had the dog and was going to keep it. This being a porno, the payment was in terms of sex, Jamie having to suck his cock to reclaim her animal. She was doing a fine job when he decided to up the ante a bit and fuck her sweet little pussy; soon bringing her into the living room to meet the other guys. They all gave her a bone of her own, starting off with a blow bang and progressing to taking turns in her pussy and ass. She wasn't particularly active since the oral she continued to provide divided her attention too much but she looked hot once the camera moved into position. They continued their sexual pounding of her, doing a DP and making her air tight, resulting in them popping their loads into her mouth for swallowing (don't watch the BTS if you like this hotty). She did swallow it down and some stilted dialogue finished things up.
Scene Three: Ginger Lee, a sexy looking gal with a great body, was up next as she slowly stripped on the expansive porch of the large house in broad daylight. There was some nice tease here though the music sucked donkey balls. The montage footage ended with her wearing a ball gag and tied to the iron door gate with a lengthy string of pearls, soon finding Michael Stefano as her would be savior. They kissed as he kept her trapped, feeling her up as she learned to enjoy the action. She dropped to her knees to slob his knob, the couple moving inside to go further as she spread her pussy open to torment him. She was a moderately active rider of cock, bouncing on his lap as he pounded away at her cookie. They went to the couch to continue boning, and she drained him dry when he rubbed out a load to her mouth. She swallowed some of it as Jake claimed she earned fuck doll status (guess which series this was for, before he left the company) and it wasn't bad.
Scene Four: Kitty, a petite Asian gal with a boyish body, started off the final scene by masturbating and using dirty talk to provide the setting for the scene. The action took place inside with no real tease provided before Steve Taylor started fingering her on the couch. She choked on his dick as she inhaled away like a newcomer trying to establish a rhythm (failing for the most part), eventually riding him as she made painful faces. The act turned passive for the rest of the screwing, with her jerking him off to drain the load, resulting in a tiny load to her face to close out the action. If you're a fan of hers, I'm sure she's done better work in the past and if you aren't, David has shot far better scenes so you won't become one based solely on this scene.
Summary: T&A Buffet by Jake Malone, David Luger, and Martin Del Toro for release by Platinum X Pictures was a Rent It for me due to the mixed quality of the scenes. A few of them were quite solid, providing superior heat and action, while others languished in the pits of porn; showing that whoever selected them for this release probably wanted to balance out the good with the bad. In short, while T&A Buffet had some good stroke material, it never made the higher rankings for numerous reasons, marking it as okay but nothing more.
