Audio/Video Quality: Filthy 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color it was shot in by director Chris Streams for release by 3rd Degree. The lighting was almost always handled nicely, limiting the grain and other visual flaws in the open settings of the house (in the living room for the most part) as well as outside. The composition of the shots was largely enhancing to the ladies as they diddled themselves or took on their partners with a few spots in need of fill lighting but otherwise covering up most of their minor flaws. There were no compression artifacts and the fleshtones were very accurate, making this one visually appealing to me even if not the very best I've seen from Chris in the past. The compression rate hovered at and around the upper 6 Mbps mark though so I was pleased that this helped keep the visuals appealing. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio was in 192 kbps, and a bit more basic with no separation or major dynamic range but I could not always hear what was said and the music didn't interfere with my viewing pleasure. For those who care, there was also the dubbed Spanish track but if you listen to it, don't say I didn't warn you that it was hilariously dubbed with vocals but no sound effects.

Body of Review: Chris Streams is one of my favorite directors at 3rd Degree these days for some of the movies he has made. His technical skills are often second only to Mike Quasar and he often manages to instill a sense of heat between performers that few of his peers seem able to invoke so I look forward to his works when I get a chance to check them out. His latest release is Filthy 2, the sequel to Filthy 1, where the cast of well known performers had mostly vaginal sex (one exception) with one another; Chris capturing the action as best he could. If that sounds interesting to you, here's a quick look at the scenes, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Tera Bond, a lean brunette wearing stripper shoes, a colorful bikini with matching collar, and brandishing a riding crop, was up first as she playfully teased a naked Toni Ribas on the bright red couch. She rubbed her coochy with the crop and he jerked off, stripping her bathing suit off to further the tease while he took the crop to her for a moment. While she did sit on his face for some momentary oral, the lion share of oral was done by her on him before she aggressively started impaling her pussy on his cock; showing off her tight hardbody in the process. They continued screwing like rabbits in a number of positions before he pulled out to jerk off to her face, some minimal PTM done first for those who care. Both of the performers were physically fit and showed all the sexual athleticism of true athletes but there was no chemistry between them this time. It would work for a time or two but only fans could use this more than that in my initial estimation.
Scene Two: Mya Diamond, a sullen brunette in a skimpy purple bikini, was up next as she rubbed herself by the indoor pool. To her benefit, her tease routine was extended and reminiscent of what you'd find in a good strip club, albeit with full nudity as she showed off her entire body to full effect. As she stretched out her ass cheeks for an inner glimpse of heaven, David Perry came up behind her and started drilling her pussy, the gal doing some PTM after her passive acceptance of his cock. That led to her taking a more aggressive stance, mechanically impaling herself on his cock in all the standard positions before the inevitable facial. She never smiled and there was no dirty talk, the duo coming off almost like they were pissed at one another from time to time but the lack of chemistry again bothered me. The best thing about the scene other than the opening tease was that she jerked him off to the facial instead of him doing it, a pet peeve of mine that rarely gets addressed.
Scene Three: Carmel Moore, an attractive bleach blonde with nice curves in a black bikini, was up next as she walked in the office to put on an even better tease in the lobby, rubbing herself while Ben English looked on from the couch. She was quiet here (some dirty talk could have elevated the heat for me) and the limited lighting was not exactly the best suited for her look, but she made her way over to him quickly enough; suck starting his dick in the process. That led to her pounding herself on his cock and doing PTM, showing a degree of enthusiasm the last two gals were missing. That they even talked to one another was a good thing, especially during the titty fuck, though I will never get used to her implants. The English duo then did more vaginal boning before he politely held back her hair, coating her face with his wad of population pudding that she licked up as the camera faded away.
Scene Four: Lisa Rose, a lean brunette with pretty eyes and a fancy outfit on (ankle length skirt and appealing corset), was up next as she gave a decent tease show too. As healthy as her ass looked though, I noticed numerous large bruises covering her body (especially her inner thighs) that really turned me off. I wasn't keen on her stretch marks and implant scars either but something about the bruises just deadened the heat for me. The rest of the scene had Toni Ribas and Franco Roccaforte working her over orally and in each hole (a DP too); the camera zooming in on her physical flaws far too often compared to most of the director's other works and even showing two different color tones (apparently, either two cameras were used or during a break, the settings were messed with on a significant level). In any case, I got the impression that someone else shot the scene for Chris and even though I liked how she jerked them off to finish the scene up, the problems were too much for my tastes so your mileage may vary.
Scene Five: Gina Lynn, the hotty on the front cover and best known female of the cast by a wide margin, was up last as she walked in the front door of the house in her slutty attire as seen on the front cover. The camera employed some tricks to try and show off her ass crack to full effect (every time she bent over, a peek into her fine ass was apparent), the gal stumbling across her "toy" in the form of a blindfolded and bound Manuel Ferrara. She was in control and savored the moment, caressing him and pushing his face in her ass crack before allowing him full access into her pussy with his tongue. Her blowjob on him was short and fairly limited but they vaginally fucked with some sense of chemistry and passion; the use of a mirror to enhance the visual appeal for a few moments not going unnoticed. Fans of women getting exceptionally juicy will appreciate her waterworks as he diddled her; the pair going back to more heated vaginal work in multiple positions before he screwed her ass cheeks (nearly to completion). She sucked his balls while he rubbed out the final load to her face; ending the movie on a relative high note but not enough to save the flick from the weaknesses mentioned above.
Summary: Filthy 2 by director Chris Streams for release by 3rd Degree was not his best work to date and I got the distinctive impression that he did not shoot each of the scenes (largely because some of them seemed to go against his usual style). The resulting lack of chemistry in most scenes forced the DVD to rely heavily on mechanical skill, something that doesn't exactly make for great replay value in my book; making my rating of Rent It a bit generous in the process. Gina Lynn's scene was pretty good and there were times when other ladies would appear to be into the action for a short while but Filthy 2, unlike Filthy 1, was a mixed bag for me so check it out before buying it.
