Extra's: There were some decent extras offered up this time, including my favorite of the bunch being the 16.5 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Graham Crack Herr. There was some interview material, additional nudity, and a sense of playfulness amongst the performers and crew that served to establish the movie as full of chemistry. Most of you will appreciate the five unrelated bonus scenes (I outlined four of them below); $2 Bill starring Lanny Barby & Evan Stone; Wild Poppy: with Dasha and Dillion Day; Perfect, with Chennin Blanc, Wendy Maya Divine, Eric Masterson, and Cheyne Collins; Lacie's Life starring Lacie Heart and James Deen; Groupie starring Tawny Roberts and Evan Stone; but they were mostly from older flicks and looked poorly mastered so your mileage may vary. There was also a short text biography for lovely Lanny Barby, two photogalleries, a second side for the DVD cover that showed four new titles released on DVD (instead of the less explicit version of the primary cover as the company has used for years), some spam (including a front commercial that could be skipped by remote control), and trailers to movies like Dinner Party, Sexy Young Thing, Colors, and Illicit.
Audio/Video Quality: Burnt Fury was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in HD, though presented in the SD format (for now) as shot in 1080i to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The lighting was reasonably well handled as was the camera work, limiting the grain, video noise, and other distracting flaws seen all too often in porn these days; the feature portions shot in a stark manner to augment the comedic aspects of the movie. The composition of the camera angles managed to enhance the look of the ladies while complimenting the suspenseful portions of the feature, a trick that I really wish the director could share with some of his industry peers (not just at Vivid either). The fleshtones were largely accurate and the DVD mastering well done, making it one of the better looking titles in recent memory. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were lower than usual but aside from the added background noise from doing so, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.
Body of Review: B. Skow is currently one of my favorite directors working at Vivid Entertainment. He has a lot of creative ability and his technical skills seem to be derived from work in the mainstream arena rather than learned through trial and error when handed a camera like so many others in the industry. His latest movie is called Burnt Fury, a comedy feature about two cops played by the mighty Evan Stone and muscular Tommy Gunn; two of the top male performers in porn at this writing. They are on the case of a serial murderer who targets hookers, giving them ample time to sample the merchandise as a result. While the dialogue was as over the top as you would expect from a feature relying heavily on Evan as the lead character, the sex was top notch all the way, especially for fans of the lovely Lanny Barby. Here's what the boxcover said about it: "When an ingénue heads to America to find fame and fortune in Hollywood, her mother does what any normal red-blooded European mother would do: she puts a hit out on a gaggle of porn stars to discourage her daughter from going XXX. Join adult's hottest brunette bombshell, Lanny Barby, in "Burnt Fury", the new Vivid romp that's part police story and part "Story of 'O'." Guaranteed to spring you, from wherever you are." It was another solid hit from the director and a great showcase for the sexual talents of Lanny. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that some condoms were used:
Scene One: After Party: Regan Reese, a gal that looked like she'd be right at home in just about any alt-porn title, was up first as she actively rode the cock of the mighty Evan Stone in a cheesy bed. His cop gear was strewn about the room and it was clear there had been a lot of partying going on as the two fucked and sucked all over the room, the scene starting in with him handcuffed to the bedpost before boning her pussy as she loudly moaned and groaned in pleasure. She proved to be quite a suck slut, doing PTM and giving him a taste of her pussy at the same time in a 69. They fucked some more before he jerked out some jizz on her abdomen and chest, the gal doing some post coital sucking in what amounted to a very heated scene between two talented performers.
Scene Two: Witness Tampering: Lanny Barby, the incredibly hot contract gal featured on the front cover, was up next in a skimpy black outfit (much like the one in the mainstream hit, Pretty Woman, worn by Julia Roberts) in a blonde wig. Her partners were Jay Lassiter and Jay Huntington, each of them taking turns with her mouth and pussy on the couch as she showed her aptitude for heated hijinks. To see this gal sucking cock is a treat and the guys seemed to like warming up her box manually before they started boning her hardcore style. She was an active lay, enhancing the levels of energy and passion substantially as she worked them over; the main reason why I picked up a copy. Given the dialogue before the scene, I thought there would be anal and a lot of DP footage but this wasn't the case as they stuck with her sweet little pussy during the ride, one popping on her lower abdomen and the other on her face with some post coital sucking. Whew!
Scene Three: Victim's Rights: Lanny Barby, having lost the wig and wearing another sexy dress, was up next in bed after some funny off screen undressing, with Tommy Gunn in bed. These two looked made for one another with her hot curves and his muscular physique, each tending orally to the other as though they wanted to do it more than simply following orders. Her sultry attitude enhanced the hummer as he diddled her with his fingers, with her getting more into it as the scene progressed. She then sat on his face as he ate her, the oral continuing until she practically pulled him inside of her for some vaginal screwing. Lanny is one of the best sexual performers at Vivid (and elsewhere) and while some of the positions did not exactly showcase her abilities to the fullest, she was hot enough to convince me that she needs more work for fans to enjoy. After numerous positions later, he rubbed out a load of population pudding onto her face, punctuating the passion shared between them. Yow!
Scene Four: Teste-Mony: Alexis Silver, the large breasted hotty making the rounds in the various breast related titles these days, was up next in a medical setting as she tore into third stringer mope Trent Soluri while she wore her stripper nurse outfit (black & red, vinyl). She power sucked him like a professional, rubbing her breasts on his cock between the knob slobbing fun, before alternating between aggressively riding him and going back for some PTM oral. He actually did a decent job of banging her before jerking off to her face but she would have really lit up the screen if she had a larger cock to work with. Still, it was a solid scene, just like the others, adding to the stroke value of the fuck flick.
Scene Five: Setting The Trap: Lanny Barby, in a revealing dress that proved her appeal yet again, was up with award winning hotty Hillary Scott in a bed for the ending lesbian scene. I know that conventional wisdom in porn holds that this kind of scene is best buried deep inside the folds of the movie rather than as an opener or closer but given who we're talking about; this proved to be a solid choice as they fingered, ate, and otherwise went at one another in the bed. Hillary was quite vocal in telling Lanny what she wanted from her friend, the couple kissing and taste testing in between the titty play and other sexual antics. The only toys used was a light purple dildo (who decided that choice of color?!?) that was used primarily by Lanny when drilling Hillary after the clear dildo was tapped into Lanny by Hillary.
Bonus Scene One: $2 Bill: "Lanny Barby, the hotty on the front DVD cover and well known Canadian beauty, was up first as she provided a private dance for the mighty Evan Stone inside a strip club's VIP room. Her teasing gyrations on the metal pool, the way she gave him those sultry looks and the generally seductive manner she employed all enhanced the preliminaries here before she orally attacked his penis with her loving mouth on the purple velour couch. That led him to snacking on her as she moaned in pleasure, eventually leading to her actively riding his shaft on top of him. If there's anything better than a beautiful gal bouncing on your cock as though it's the only thing in the world of importance, I'm unaware of it but once again Lanny showed the world that Vivid is a company changing with the times as this former gonzo gal displayed lots of passion in her scene. For those of you into anal, she was just as aggressive at taking him inside her ass though he sure couldn't last long when she did, blowing his load like nobody's business. She tried to save what could be salvaged in terms of doing a facial but it was a chemistry filled, heated scene nonetheless."
Bonus Scene Two: Groupie: "Tawny Roberts, the lean little blondie on the front DVD cover, was up next with the mighty Evan Stone on a red couch. She had a different outfit on than she wore on the cover, this time sporting a black top, tiny blue jean skirt and fishnet stockings (typically called "slutware"). The point of this scene was to establish Evan (as the lead singer of the group) as the kind of down and dirty type to win the bet. To do so, he went right to tapping her fine little pussy (albeit with a condom) before she whipped off the condom for some very warm head. She's grown more talented orally since I last saw her and this aspect of the scene was fun to watch but some of you will inevitably prefer the anal that came afterwards. The music was a partner to the vocals this time and it ended with a wad to her face as Evan sent her over to Ben (for the next scene) as he watched the two go at it."
Bonus Scene Three: Wild Poppy: Dasha and real life significant other Dillion had the next scene. They were on a picnic table outside during the afternoon and he took a lot of time going down on her before she returned the favor. Both of them have a lot of chemistry together and this scene was no exception as they screwed like rabbits on that table. He even got some of her ass as he opened her backdoor wide enough to slide his respectable sized penis inside it after which he blew his load on her face.
Bonus Scene Four: Perfect: Chennin and Cheyne did each other on a couch while Wendy and Eric had some fun on a loveseat. It was a short scene with washed out colors and tons of grain but I have long been a fan of the ladies so I enjoyed it for all of its limitations.
Summary: Burnt Fury by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment was worthy of being Highly Recommended thanks to the levels of replay value, strokability, and fuck for the buck as much as the multitude of Lanny Barby scenes present. The technical aspects were creative and interesting with some decent extras to add to the mix. If you like cop capers that employ humor and raw sexuality in heated pairings, Burnt Fury will be a good one for you to pick up. I can only hope that the director makes this a series, as alluded to in the BTS feature. Good work!
