Stormy Daniels and Brooke took care of Marcus in bed.

Extras: The best extra for most of you will be the bonus scene from Operation: Desert Stormy between Stormy Daniels and Randy Spears that lasted 9:15 minutes. It wasn’t very long but it added some value for those of you that don’t already have the movie so I described it below. My personal favorite was the 20:36 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jax and Red Ezra (edited by “Rusty Trombone”) as it gave a better look at what they cast & crew were trying to do. There was some nudity and clips of action from the sex scenes; the cast having a lot of fun on the set (such as Brad describing some of what was going on and Jessica proving she was more than just a credit on the movie). There were seven photogalleries, three star stats, a promo reel, the usual DVD Rom material, and 12 trailers to movies like Coming Home, Operation Desert Stormy, The Craving, Manhunters, Fuck, Just Between Us, The Muse, The Visitors, Supernatural, Black Widow, Melt, and Delilah. There was also a true double sided DVD cover and a cardboard slipcase for the case.


Katie Morgan is always a treasure!

Condoms: Yes

Audio/Video Quality: Last Night was presented in an appealing 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Brad Armstrong for Wicked Pictures (with Francois Clousot working the cameras). While filmed in high definition, it was down converted to a regular DVD (in the future, the HD version should look even better), so there was some minor grain in some of the scenes where lighting was minimized as part of the scene (night scenes tend to do that). The artistic measures taken to make the movie’s scenes look interesting did manage to weaken the overall effect for me; a simple comparison to the BTS footage will show you the lengths the movie was processed to achieve this negative effect too. The video noise was minimal and the composition of the scenes was extremely well taken care of, enhancing the look of the ladies in nearly all cases but there was aliasing for those of you wanting better video to showcase your home theatres. There were no obvious compression artifacts and the bitrate was typically in the mid to upper 6 Mbps range. The audio was presented with two choices, the primary one being a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English track that balanced the vocals and music nicely. There was also a 2.0 Dolby Digital track in Spanish available as advertised on the DVD case but I have yet to hear from anyone that likes the problematic dubs so listen a bit if you want some laughs. Otherwise, the audio seemed to be another step in the right direction for Wicked Pictures, even though the vocals were almost certainly recorded in monaural or dubbed in later (not to mention limited in scope). Still, the music was well done and the overall quality of the audio was slightly better than average as well (much better in a few scenes and dialogue portions).


Stormy Daniels in better light with Derrick.

Body of Review: Stormy Daniels is arguably the key contract gal working at Wicked Pictures these days, getting most of the attention by the marketing and promotions department for her work on both sides of the camera. The lovely blond has certainly paid her dues for this honor but her legion of fans grows with every mainstream project and every feature dance job so her sexual limits onscreen aside, she has proven to be a winner for the company over the years. Enter director Brad Armstrong, her former boyfriend and directing powerhouse at the company; the man a star maker in a number of ways and easily the company’s lead (and most versatile) director. Team the two together like in their former days of glory and you have a cute little feature fuck flick called Last Night; a story about a bachelor party gone wrong and a man’s attempts to fix it. I’m not going to spoil the fun of the plotted portions of the movie for you but it was actually a gem of a project in terms of a couples movie, combining some of the better acting in a smaller budget offering with a bunch of sexy women on the make. The cover said it like this: “Rick (Marcus London) embarks on his bachelor party night with an enthusiastic attitude, determined to enjoy his last night of freedom with his buddies (Brad Armstrong, Barrett Blade, Jay Ashley). But somewhere along the way things get out of hand. After picking up a stranded and sultry motorist, Sondra (Stormy Daniels), a wild night ensues. Strip clubs, sex parties, hookers, the time of his life. Until the next morning when Rick finds himself in the middle of a terrifying situation. Someone is blackmailing him, but the ransom is more than he can pay. Now he must decide whether telling the truth about what happened last night, is worth the price…” If that sounds good to you, here’s a quick look at the sex scenes by cast and action, noting that condoms were worn in all the scenes:


Randy consoling Stormy in the final scene.

Scene One: August, a sexy lady with hot moves, was up first as she relieved Marcus London of some testosterone when meeting him outside of the shower. She dropped to her knees and blew him; the muscular man giving as well as he received in return. This led to them screwing vaginally in a few positions, August a moderately active rider but the bathroom not providing her any place to truly impale herself on his cock. The scene ended when he launched a small load of population pudding on her firm young ass.

Scene Two: Stormy Daniels, Aurora Snow, Mikayla, Gianna Lynn, Brad Armstrong, Barrett Blade, and Marcus London, were up next in the VIP room of the strip club as part of the bachelor’s party. The scene looked extremely accurate in terms of how dark things were and the positioning of the couches; the droning beat of the music a bit generic but understandable given the expense of “real” music rights for movies. Sexually, the action was again limited to a lot of blowjobs and vaginal pounding but I’m told (cough) that this is exactly what happens in such places if you shell out enough cash (the humorous exchange between Brad and Stormy a winner for those who listen too). Stormy seemed subdued here and her associates did most of the work, the performer leaving early on in the scene as part of the plot. Still, she did some screwing and took Marcus off to a special place as the others kept at it. Mikayla seemed especially attuned to giving an active ride with Aurora and Gianna best suited for the lengthy oral but overall, it was a winner of a scene for me with a lot of replay and stroke value. The gals took facials to end the action and I found it to be a heated piece of porn.

Scene Three: Brooke Haven, Jada Fire, Stormy Daniels, and Marcus London, were up next in the limousine as Stormy picked up the others with the line: “which one of you sucks the best cock?” Brooke and Jada fought for the cock and the winner looked to be Jada in terms of her raw energy but Brooke was selected when all was said & done. The arguing between the ladies was another nice touch (from what I hear, and his forced selection resulted in the party carrying on at the Pink Motel. Stormy resumed her more active role sexually here with Brooke on backup; both of them allowed to do a lot more on the bed then in the constricted vehicle from what I could see. There was a lot of blowjob and cunnilingus here with a fair amount of vaginal screwing. Stormy was initially the lead but the action moved into anal with Brooke getting boned in her lovely backside. As with the other scenes, the ladies were mostly active cock riders (whoever is responsible for this needs a raise by the way) and played well with each other too. The scene ended with Brooke rubbing out his load to her mouth and the plot picking back up.

Scene Four: Katie Morgan, one of the hottest little ladies in porn these days, was up next in her stripper maid outfit in bed with Jay Ashley. She was vocal and sexually aggressive, both of them engaging in heated oral on the other to warm up and provide some chemistry. There wasn’t a lot of sexual variety here and the couple did limited positions but she was as active as they allowed her to be with Jay pounding her like she owed him money. When she was on top of him though, all bets were off and the gal impaled herself onto the cock; her spread ass begging to be tapped too left intact this time. Fans of foot fetish will have a few moments of additional fun but as a straightforward scene, it worked largely due to the totality of the scene; ending in her taking a titty pop and providing some post coital sucking before the camera faded away.

Scene Five: Stormy Daniels, in a much better lit bed, then took on the muscular Derrick Pierce as the two slowly, seductively, stripped and teased each other to elevate the heat of the moment. Stormy’s one of those ladies that looks better with the lights on so I was pleased that someone got the idea to provide a little illumination this time, from Derrick diddling her with his fingers to her tasting them and blowing him with her sweet little mouth wrapped around his cock. I wished that her corkscrew method had been employed (it’s her best oral trick to date) but she was bouncing on his cock vaginally in no time so I didn’t really focus too much on the missing portions of the blowjob for long. She doesn’t always ride dick this well so you roll with the punches and take the best from the scenes that you can; Stormy doing some nice PTM between positions. The scene ended with a facial and while she didn’t swallow, she didn’t wince or pull away either.

Scene Six: Stormy Daniels, in the police interrogation room, was up last as she showed detective Randy Spears how much more persuasive she could be than Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct. The sex that followed had them poking, prodding, and orally gratifying each other, using an annoying rapid edit music video style for the opener that bugged the shit out of me as much as it does at other companies. The music was lame but as the scene progressed, the editor apparently calmed down, the oral and vaginal fucking decent, if not as good as some of the previous scenes. The up side was more decent lighting to see Stormy better, even if there were more shadows in play than her last scene. It ended with a facial that Randy rubbed out to her tongue, the fantasy aspect of the action playing well into the plot.

Bonus Scene: Operation: Desert Stormy: Stormy Daniels, the busty babe on the front cover, was up first after dancing the tango with stately Randy Spears. The two are celebrating her newfound status as an agent in bed, Randy spending some quality time on her body using his oral skills; savoring the taste of her titties and cookie, the pair actively boning when she got on top of him. I missed her giving him a hummer but my patience was rewarded when she ended the scene by draining him dry of population pudding and swallowing his load; the short scene showing some chemistry but hardy had enough going for it to open a blockbuster such as this.

Summary: Last Night by director Brad Armstrong for Wicked Pictures may not have been a big budget blockbuster of a feature containing murder, mayhem, and mystery but it was a nice hidden gem of a movie where the biggest weakness was the script itself. The casting was solid and the various elements used to make the movie all added up to a title many of you will enjoy, not just the couples it was designed for so I rated it as Recommended. In short, Last Night was a nice showcase for performer Stormy Daniels and director Brad Armstrong; one of their better features together in a long time so give it a look to see what I mean.
