Cast: Ashlynn Brooke, Mark Davis, Amy Ried, John Strong, Sammie Rhodes, Brooke Belle, Derrick Pierce, Katarina Kat, Lee Stone
Length: 115:09 minutes
Date of Production: 7/20/2007, 7/21/2007
Extras: While I prefer my extras to be unique to the production in hand, many of you are bound to find the 19:59 minute scenes between Amy Ried and Derrick Pierce from Addicted Again to be the best extra so I described it below. The 9:11 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was pretty solid, providing some insights to the scenes by a series of interviews that started with Katarina with Amy and Ashlynn up afterwards. There was some erotic content to it as well but that was the basic idea behind the feature. There were also trailers, a commercial for Phallix, a photogallery, some spam, and a true double sided DVD cover as well.
Audio/Video Quality: Addicted Forever was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Miles Long for New Sensations. The scenes all had their own variations on the style employed but the general idea was to use lighting to enhance the erotic nature of the scenes, not to the point where it wasn't strokable to jaded old porn hounds like me but substantially nicer to look at with a significant other than the Wal-Mart lighting of most gonzo. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I got the impression that Miles spent more time than he used to on the movie given the manner in which the edits and camera angles enhanced the looks of the nicely made up ladies. It was far from perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual. The bitrate ranged from the upper 3 Mbps to mid 5 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it but the numbers alone do not tell the whole story in this regard. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate most titles are mastered with, a soothing series of pleasant musical pieces making the background sound better than the usually generic stuff I'm used to hearing. The vocals were portrayed largely with a haunting echo, on purpose as far as I can tell, and while my mileage varied, they were still pretty solid compared to many similar efforts.

Body of Review: Miles Long has been involved in the production of porn for quite some time now, lately working a lot at New Sensations. I have not had the privilege of seeing all of his stuff but his recent attempts at stepping up his game proved obvious in the upcoming Addicted Forever 3. This is the third in the series of erotic vignettes that I last explored with Addicted Again last year, showing the man has an eye for the beauties as he moved to using an anamorphic widescreen process and improved on most aspects of the show. The focal point of the action was narrator Ashlynn Brooke and as she develops into a full fledged porn performer of the top ranks, movies like this one may well be considered her stepping stones. There were five vignettes that worked on multiple levels, not sticking to the erotica style others do but never going into the overdone gonzo areas either. If that sounds as appealing to you as it does to me, you are certainly going to find this one a step about the pack. Here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Ashlynn Brooke, the busty blond babe on the front cover (both versions), was up first looking great in her black dress with make up and jewelry befitting an upscale lady of distinction. Her voice over was appealing as she teased the camera inside and outside of the house, eventually finding veteran stud Mark Davis warming her up with his mouth and hands outside on a mattress. While she may be old enough to be his daughter (not granddaughter as some have claimed), her look alone was very intoxicating and except for the fresh tattoo marks on her lower back, I had few issues with how stunning she appeared while he ate her out and revved up her engine. The pants she gave were Porn 101 but she proved to be a fine cocksucker as she seductively blew the guy. She broke the illusion by looking at the camera to her right hand side too much but the oral led to one of her most active vaginal rides I've seen and amounted to a sight for sore eyes. They had little rhythm together and the chemistry was certainly marginal but my overall impression of the scene was that she had made some nice strides and if Mark could have kept a full erection, she might have been even better. The scene ended when he rubbed out a load of population pudding to her face and chest, the gal licking his pipe as the camera panned up and replaced it with her toy from Phallix.
Scene Two: Amy Ried, another busty beauty and a veteran of the series, was up next as she used a glass dildo in her lingerie while teasing the camera in slow motion during the solo portion of the scene. This took place in the living room and I'd have licked it clean for her but she settled for muscular stud John Strong instead (a wide choice on her part). He fingered her snatch as she dripped with sweat from the toy pummeling her pussy, leading to her slobbing his knob aggressively while on her knees. Her hummers are always solid and this was no different; her affinity for cock at least one reason why she came back to porn after a brief respite not long ago. He gave her some oral too and while there was clearly a mixture of porn performing and genuine lust, she appeared to encourage him into poking her pussy after only a little bit of it. She was another fine rider of cock that let loose with her caboose; taking the pounding he gave her cookie as she gyrated her hips and let her ass shake pleasingly. She did not do much vocally, sticking with moans and coos for the most part, but she shook in all the right places to the point where I wasn't complaining, eventually draining his balls dry with some PTM head for the load to cover her face. The Phallix dildo was never far from the picture so I guess they sponsored the production but she did not use it any more in the scene. Yum!
Scene Three: Ashlynn Brooke, back in the courtyard at night while she diddled herself using another toy, was in a limited bit of black lingerie as attractive Sammie Rhodes was shown magically popping in and around the screen like a fairy of old in her sheer fishnet outfit. This was another of the slow paced seduction scenes that proved lesbian porn can be fun too, the gals kissing slowly before getting more intimate on the cozy lounge chair by the fountain. Sammie was the initial aggressor but both of them received some quality time from the other and the toy sponsorship angle was probably better suited for this type of scene if you catch my drift. In some ways, it provided a nice change of pace but it was not the strongest scene of the movie by a long shot.
Scene Four: Brooke Belle, an overly made up blond cutie that reminded me of "Baby Spice" from the pop group, was up next as she followed the formula and masturbated with a glass toy in slow motion. The haze used to invoke a certain mood by the director was a bit overdone this time but her piston pumping action was working for me even as Derrick Pierce entered the courtyard setting. He held her in his arms as she continued masturbating, taking over as he ate her juicy pussy while fingering it. He took great care to get her off, resulting in a decent blowjob by the lady that showed she was no stranger to a cock in her mouth. She spent time on his balls too, readily giving him the sensation he desired before lowering her beef curtain pussy on his rod to ride. They went balls deep and she was an active rider throughout the scene, impaling herself as much as possible before she sat passively as he rubbed out his semen on her face and chest. It wasn't a great scene (lack of personal chemistry being the biggest culprit) but it was a fine one for my purposes.
Scene Five: Katarina Kat, the Russian circus performer that so many people have discovered as incredibly well suited for porn this year, was up next in a living room setting as she masturbated in such a manner as to show her flexibility. The glass dildo action was okay but watching her stretch and contort so easily was hot and this seemed to drive the massive Lee Stone on to appreciate her all the more. He sat transfixed by her solo work, helping and guiding her as he could, but she wanted to the real deal so he replaced the toy after getting her orally satisfied; finding her mouth was the perfect place for it initially. The blowjob was a nice combination of seductive moves and active mouth work, his erection taking long to arrive at then what would have been my first load. The standing 69 led to the bumping of uglies, the gal showing no letting up as she bounced on his cock. The music was more rock driven this time and not as well integrated into the action but she was a solid performer and he picked up his game accordingly. The facial ended the scene and she went back to her dildo as the semen dripped down her lovely chest.
Bonus Scene: Addicted Again: Amy Ried, the hotty on the front DVD cover that has since left porn, was up first as she teased the camera outside in her flowing black lingerie (with a montage of B&W footage added in of her having sex). I can see why so many people have enjoyed her body of work, as limited as it may be, and her appeal was no less strong knowing about her departure. The tease led to her masturbating with a glass toy from Phallix (the premium glass dildo manufacturer I'm told) outdoors on the tiled deck overlooking the city when Derrick Pierce approached her. They kissed and stroked one another, leading to her massaging his penis inside of his pants. His wood was evident and she was soon sucking away on it as though it were a lollipop, but only for a moment before they switched oral roles and he gave her cookie some attention. Thankfully, the music wasn't always at the forefront of the audio track and the vocals kicked in about midway through the action as he worked over her pussy so very nicely. They screwed vaginally with her taking an active role in the matter, titties bouncing and vocals coaxing him on, before he shot his wad on her face. The image looked filtered to soften the features of the scene but otherwise, the couple made for a nice start to the movie.
Summary: Addicted Forever by director Miles Long for New Sensations was clearly worth a rating of Recommended or better depending on what you are looking for in a porno. The ladies were all attractive, especially Ashlynn and Amy, they often performed really well, and the technical values were a cut above the majority of similar efforts by the company and several of its competitors; enhancing the replay and strokability of the action considerably. In short, Addicted Forever 3 was more than just a decent bunch of boning, it was a step in the right direction for both director Miles Long as well as contract cutie Ashlynn Brooke so give it a look when it comes out soon.
