XCritic's Advice: Recommended

Phoenix Marie looked better in action than my screen capture.

Brand New Faces 2

Vivid Entertainment

Genre: Gonzo, Newcomers

Director: B. Skow

Anna Nihilist and Reina Terror will appeal to the "Alt" crowd.

Cast: Phoenix Marie, Voodoo, Anna Nihilist, Reina Terror, Alex Gonz, Alana Leigh, Donny Long, Allie Foster

Length: 224:18 minutes

Date of Production: 10/15/2007

Alana Leigh was cute too.

Extras: After starting off with heaps of spam (with cute Sunny Leone hawking the company’s stuff), the rest of the extras took on a new light. There were not many of them, a handful of trailers and more spam, but the length of the scenes largely made up for it again.

Condoms: None

Allie Foster had a hot body!

Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces 2 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 well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore what was advertised as their first scenes (with a money back guarantee). The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible. The fleshtones were accurate this time and the DVD mastering was well done (if in a bitrate hovering around 4 Mbps), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background noise, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent.

Body of Review: B. Skow has been one of the driving forces at Vivid Entertainment in terms of providing good looking porn in recent years; typically bringing something unique to the mix as he enhanced the performances of the ladies he shot for the company under so many sets of circumstances. His latest release is a bit different in that it was a series of lengthy scenes called Brand New Faces 2; a movie dedicated to showcasing five lovely young ladies in their first scenes for porn and the sequel to the extremely popular Brand New Faces 1 I saw only a few weeks ago. The porn industry is replete with gals claiming to be in their first scenes ever but the catch this time was the cover promising a “100% Money-Back Guarantee” that these were the first times the ladies were on film. Be that as it may, the cover also promised that the scenes were candid and given my experience with newcomers, I was hoping Skow could pull a rabbit out of a hat and also make them award winning performances. If you’re still interested, here’s a quick glimpse into the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:

Scene One: Phoenix Marie, the cutie on the lower left hand corner of the front cover with the 36-C bra size, was first up as the Golden Valley Arizona native showed all her goodies on 10/11/2007 in a scene with Voodoo. The series formula is to have the gals talk about themselves and while she seemed kind of shy, Phoenix liked the director’s touch even before she had Voodoo lying his skills to make her wet. Aside from her implants, she seemed to be a naturally playful gal and not so skinny as some in the industry appear to favor. She masturbated and was clearly wet without any assistance, her career as a stripper probably about to take off if she continues making a few more pornos. They left the couch to go to the well lit bed to play; the gal anxious to undress him to see the kind of package she was about to work with. The size caused her eyes to light up just a bit before she started sucking him off, licking his balls and actively enjoying the taste of his member as she got into the scene. He fingered her and was also appreciative for the newcomer coochie, pounding away on her cookie in no time as her juices flowed nicely (but not the fake “squirting” kind too common elsewhere). Their respiration rates elevated as the scene continued and they showed some chemistry for one another as they bumped uglies, Phoenix doing some PTM between vaginal positions until climbing on top of him. The scene lasted almost a full hour and she was raw as could be but positively glowing when he rubbed out the load of population pudding to her chest and mouth; the lady doing some post coital sucking and laughing to close things out (she even swallowed what limited load went to her mouth). Whew!

Scene Two: Anna Nihilist and Reina Terror, the gals on the lower right hand corner of the cover with the small chests and hailing from Bigfork MT & Hollywood California respectively, were then up with Alex Gonz in a scene shot on 10/14/2007. Neither one of these ladies appealed to me on a physical level, perhaps their being better suited for an Alt-Porn version of the series, and the weird hair, plentiful ink, and general demeanor of the ladies was such that Anna (the bleach blond) and Reina (the futuristic looking gal with colorful dreads). Skow was “super happy” at their participation in the scene, figuring they wouldn’t show up but having them sign the form all gals in the series sign that promises it is their first scene. I hear the website for the series is getting huge attention too and Alex took a personal interest in the proceeding before the gals sat on the couch and started peeling off their clothing. The panties worn were see-through and the initial action was lesbian as the ladies explored the situation to the fullest. Reina was the dominant gal at first until Anna warmed up, some pawing, licking, and teasing adding to the moment before they went to the bed. The shaven pubes made them look even younger, too young for my tastes, but neither gal was a stranger to having a sexually good time (just on camera as it were). Alex started macking too and it was a free for all to some extent as the pacing was a bit off while the gals learned their moves. The rough edges aside, they had a substantial amount of raw energy between them that Alex found to his liking; combined with their attempts at performing making it more fun than it would have been for me given my tastes in the ladies. There wasn’t much cock sucking taking place and a quick, abrupt, edit was a pain but for me, the biggest weakness was how passive the gals were for a long time in the scene. They did pick up the pace a bit towards the end, after some PTM and various oral supplemented the vaginal screwing, but the scene was mixed quality for me despite the potential of the women. The scene ended with a facial and it also lasted the better part of an hour for those keeping track.

Scene Three: Alana Leigh, the very cute brunette seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover from Lancaster California (with the 34-B bra size), was up with Donny Long from a scene credited as being shot on 10/9/2007. Alana had the look of a gal sporting a few remaining pounds of babyfat nicely on her frame, her chest better suited for porn than her relatively small ass. Compared to the previous gals in the show, Alana seemed to be the shyest though she was clean shaven and did not look away from the camera a whole lot during the interview and solo portion of the action. When it was time to bone, she went to the bed where Donny felt her up, fingered her a little, and then ate her as she fished around for his penis in his pants. She was not a complete stranger to a cock in her mouth but as he grew harder, she found it tougher to handle as easily; spending enough time with his cock that I found myself wanting her to slob my knob a little too. Their 69 led to her climbing onto his dick, Alana actively pumping her ass up and down on his rod as he pounded her pussy. As she fills out and tones up, she should become a real hotty but her oral skills were put into action a few times before she took the facial; the PTM and pile driver resulting in Donny launching a large load that she wiped off with a lot of effort.

Scene Four: Allie Foster, the sweet looking gal next door seen on the upper right hand corner of the cover from Portland, IN, was up last with Donny Long in another scene shot on 10/9/2007. Her 36C chest and 20 year old body were winners from the get go, her shirt raising the question about what her favorite yoga position was. Having wrapped her legs around her neck that left her pussy pressed against the minimal panties she was forced to wear, I became an instant yoga fan myself; Allie saying that she got into porn thanks to Bree Olson’s Myspace page. The interview went well and had her touching herself before leaving the couch to go play on the bed with a semi-spent Donny. She was a fairly talented lady too and after some nods to the oral fun, he was drilling her nicely. She was not as a consistent a cock rider as I prefer but her potential was solid and they were both covered in sweat during the nearly hour long scene. The way her sweet titties swayed all over the place enhanced the scene more than her limited chemistry with Donny; the energy and enthusiasm she projected keeping the scene heated as far as I was concerned. I hope to see how good she will be when working with a guy she really digs, but it was a pleasing manner to end the show as her active mouth and hips were bucking all over his dick. The wad of semen was slight this time, perhaps since he had already shot his major nut earlier but most of it went to her chest and she massaged it in, Allie licking her titties clean.

Summary: Brand New Faces 2 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment was worth a rating of Recommended to me for all the action, the new faces, and the technical handling of the scenes but fans of brand new gals will think it was a “must have” since the ladies looked and performed their roles so well. I can’t definitively state that none of them have shot a professional scene before but unlike so many titles that Vivid sits on for years as part of their marketing approach, Brand New Faces 2 was rushed right to the pressing plant to jump on the newness factor (something other companies seem to have embraced in the past as many of you like to see “firsts”, real or imagined). Whatever the reality of the marketing claim though, all five of the cuties were breaths of fresh air and deserve some accolades for providing enough fuck for the buck, strokability, and replay value to make this a keeper for your collection.
