Extra's: The best extra for most of you will be the bonus scene and trailer from Fuck For Dollars 3. I described the bonus scene between Sasha Grey and Jack Venice below for those who didn't read my original review (shame on you!) and it was one of the best scenes from the movie thanks to their chemistry together. There was also a true second sided DVD cover that was less explicit for those who care.
Audio/Video Quality: I Film Myself 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by the ladies (again, not Eddie Powell) for Greedy Video. This was the latest release under the new label and served to spotlight the company's willingness to try something new fairly well; with a lot of unpolished looking visuals used to add to the theme of the movie (a reality masturbation show where the ladies were in charge of their own scenes). The bitrate hovered around the mid 5 Mbps level but it was obvious the gals had limited experience taping themselves in POV fashion. The lighting was fair to moderate, minimizing the grain and video noise in large part, with the compositional matters being in need of some editing and better camerawork but again, that was part of the appeal of the movie; the gals controlled the cameras. The fleshtones were slightly washed out but in fairness to the movie, the theme wouldn't have worked as well if it looked crisp and clear. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English was presented in the standard 192 Kbps bitrate with no separation, minimal music and nothing to detract or add to the sex in large part. Some whispering could be heard at times but it wasn't all that bad or frequent, lending an air to the gonzo format.

Body of Review: Greedy Video is a small offshoot of the New Sensations empire that was established to provide something slightly different than the largely glamorous porn the parent company is known for. The idea of reality porn and taking chances by those in charge has made them one of my favorite newcomers on the porn scene; almost always offering up a fresher look at porn than the multitude of gonzo companies churning out the same old stuff. Their latest fuck flick is I Film Myself 3, the sequel to I Film Myself 1 where the ladies are handed a video camera and told to masturbate. This gives those of you who aren't keen on watching the third string mope squad members out on parole nailing the babes a chance to have some fun too; a change of pace we should all welcome as a solid alternative. The back cover said it like this: "Check it out because these girls are takin' charge like their name was Charles! We've given 6 hotties the chance to put the camera in their hands as they play with themselves...live! Who knows what tricks she'll pull when the doors are closed and the windows are shut! It's just her and the camera now -- and it's priceless." If that sounds good to you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used and that the ladies followed a fairly straightforward formula:
Scene One: Presley Maddox, a thin brunette with an alt-porn look to her, was up first and she made the most of her opportunity to tease using the large mirror on the wall to display herself. She caressed herself and took ample time to display as much as she could, coyly coaxing the viewer with her piercings and other body parts. She settled in to feel herself more and then move to a vibrator, even employing a small mirror to get a better angle at times. A lot of the action was shot when she rested the camera on a dresser to free her hands, making it a decent start for fans of ladies getting themselves off.
Scene Two: Bree Olson, the extremely cute blonde on the front cover, was chosen for a reason; she's a major babe with a brilliant future ahead of her in porn if she makes the right choices. Her camera work was decidedly more jumpy as she make it look like she was making a video for a boyfriend rather than the unwashed masses. Thankfully, she set the camera down a lot as she teased and stripped, giving the kind of impression I had of her a boost in the process. She gave a wet t-shirt look before jumping on the bed to masturbate with the vibrator in her ass; tasting it before her relatively short scene ended.
Scene Three: Ashley Jensen, a cute girl next door type, was up next as she followed the formula with her all natural body. Like the others, she was playful and it largely worked for me as she settled in on the bed after stripping. Her roast beef lips made her look as ready as she claimed to be, the fingers spending a lot of time inside of her before she expanded her repertoire with the small vibrator. She did taste testing and the scene, while not as good as the previous scenes, was still quite strokable.
Scene Four: Maya Hills, a 19 year old back in porn after a brief retirement last year, was up next on the couch as the exotic looking Russian-American continued to provide the kind of solo satisfaction fans came to the DVD for. Her line was that she was using her new birthday present (the video camera) to make a personal celebrity tape; the gal using a lot of dirty talk as she pretended to talking to someone. She spent a lot of time in close up on her head but otherwise was a great deal of fun to observe; her firm young body looking exactly what I like to see in such efforts. The scene seemed to be the longest and most varied in some ways, the gal using her large Rabbit effectively in her pussy to get off. In all, this was a great scene!
Scene Five: Natasha Nice, an 18 year old brunette with pretty eyes, was up next as she showed her ample rack for the camera and a very fresh looking pussy as a bonus. She had the kind of gal next door look too but also some lovely curves that enhanced her figure nicely; making me wish to deposit a load of population pudding on her myself. She had some of the freshness that heavily experienced performers lacked but could have used some lessons to better capture her sweet booty drop routine too. In all, she was one that reminded me of a very friendly stripper looking to make extra money; money I would have gladly parted with after watching this scene of her. The lack of toys didn't hurt either as it provided a change of pace from the other scenes.
Scene Six: Veronique Vega, a young Latina with large DSL's, was up last and she seemed to be slightly more experienced with the camera than some of her peers in the flick. She didn't say a whole lot, proving to be too self conscious for my tastes, at least until she warmed up in her little pink outfit. She was another one with roast beef pussy lips and a gal not into using a toy to get off. To me, she had some untapped potential but it was probably the weakest scene of the movie and putting the scene last wasn't the best way to go in my opinion.
Bonus Scene: Fuck For Dollars 3: Sasha Grey, a lean but increasingly popular brunette in porn, was up first as she found herself stranded along the highway until rescued by Brother and Houstonian hero, Jack Venice. They offered her a ride since she was down on her luck, resulting in her earning some money the old fashioned way. In keeping with the theme of the show, she would be offered various amounts of cash to flash them and do certain acts, initially as they drove down the rode in public. Jack got some road head before they made it back to the house where she went crazy on his cock, sucking away like he returned home from a parade as the guest of honor. She deepthroated his rod in a messy fashion before taking it straight into her tight little ass (where she got very vocal and loud). She was an active anal rider and did a lot of ATM between positions, clearly earning the lead spot in the movie as a result. He did some choking before rubbing out a load of population pudding into her mouth to gargle and swallow; ending the scene for $220. Yum!
Summary: I Film Myself 3 by Greedy Video had all the markings of a good stroke flick by providing an attractive cast of cute women, a theme that allowed them to enjoy themselves rather than completely fake it as happens all the time in most porn, and technical values that were a step above a home movie but not so much so that you'd think they were canned. That being the case, the strokability, replay value, and levels of fuck for the buck earned this one a rating of Recommended from me. In short, I Film Myself 3, like the original volume of the series (I Film Myself 1) will be a DVD you will go back to again and again thanks to the sheer simplicity of the idea working out so well. Good job!
