Jada Fire looked great in the sun beside Manuel Ferrara.
Length: 163:27 minutes
Date of Production: 9/27/2007
Kaylani Cream had an ample sample!
Extras: The first disc of the double disc set had an informative cast list and list of the second disc contents (with a few websites listed) but that was it; reserving most of the space on the disc for the movie itself. The second disc had a lot more going for it, led primarily by the bonus scene from Anal Expedition 5 that I described below in detail. I really liked the 21:00 minute long Behind the Scenes feature too as it had the ladies giving anecdotes, extra nudity, and some photoshoot footage. There was also a photogallery, a cumshot recap, some limited filmographies, and a very nice 50:08 minute long series of Photoshoots of the ladies that I really liked a lot given the strength & diversity of the cast. The second disc also had some other features like 6 trailers for movies like Slutty & Sluttier 4, Fucked On Sight 2, Slutty & Sluttier 3, Anal Expedition 11, Evilution 1, Evilution 2, New Whores on the Block 2, New Whores on the Block 1, Evil Anal, Evil Anal 2, Evil Anal 3.
Melrose Foxxx was a lean hotty with a nice face.

Audio/Video Quality: Bangin’ Black Boxes was presented in 1.78:1 ratio letterboxed color as shot for DVD by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel. I would’ve greatly preferred the movie to be in anamorphic widescreen (the process adds a lot of detail to the picture on widescreen televisions) but that trend still hasn’t hit all of Evil Angel yet so I’ll just have to extol the virtues of the process on movies released by their competition until they get with the program. I’ve noticed that Manuel’s work for the company simply hasn’t been as crystal clear as some of his work elsewhere and this was one more such case. The colors were overly saturated in most cases and the fleshtones reflected this issue, but the lighting was not the best this time; making the picture look decent but not nearly as good as some of his older work or his best works at Evil Angel. Lighting varied by the scenes and was spottier than previous efforts but still seemed to convey the sense of raw energy fairly well, most scenes taking on a saturated or yellow tinted look that could probably be easily fixed in post production with the right crew. The amount of grain and video noise were low to moderate as a result so while it wasn't the best I've seen from Manuel (not even close in fact), it was better than some gonzo productions by weaker directors in the field. There were a few compression artifacts noticed during the scenes but the strength of the visuals was how the composition of the shots almost always enhanced the looks or perceived passion of the scenes; usually hovering in the lower 2 Mbps range. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps) with minimal separation between the channels and a standard dynamic range, making it nothing special in this sense but not bad either.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara has been one of the best directors distributed by Evil Angel in recent times, largely because of his ability to connect with the ladies and bring out their inner slut better than most others. He gets them to do things for him that his peers have to pay extra for, the difference between the dynamics clear in most cases (paying them versus them wanting to try stretching their limits). Well, he has tried his hand at a lot of niches and wanted to do some interracial with black women doing white men (different than movies like Racial Violations 2 and Jack in the Ass where black men did white women) and came up with the double disc set of Bangin’ Black Boxes: Special Extended Set; a series of five new scenes and a whole disc full of solid extras like a bonus scene from the old days when he worked at RLD. Manuel took part in most of the scenes and the ladies were always either very physically attractive or at very least sexually skilled, a diverse style of casting as few beside Manuel seem willing to try these days. If you think this sounds as good to you as it did to me, here’s a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were employed:
Scene One: Sinnamon Love, a curvy cutie was an ample sample of an ass, was up first as she was bent over on the middle of the floor with her ass in the air. This led studly director Manuel Ferrara to smack her cheeks a few times, getting her in the mood with some toy play and ATM before inserting his fingers in her backdoor. The red tape used to bind her enhanced the look of her ass too but she seemed content to leave her fate in his hands, her face among the most fetching of the cast. The tease led her to the stairs where she started blowing mopes like Arnold Schwartzenpecker, Johnny Fender, Mike Hash, Joe Blow, and DSnoop; inhaling their cocks and jerking them off with plenty of energy as she provided the kind of oral experience most men appreciate. The blowbang led her to Manuel’s larger cock and as much as she liked the previous quantity, his quality offering struck her as more appealing. The messy hummers left a lot of slobber on her torso but he started banging her pussy hardcore style when the other men surrounded her again for more of her oral loving. This swapping back and forth continued with her offering some limited dirty talk when Manuel was plugging her ass in doggy. Her energy levels were high and the scene was very appropriate to begin the movie with. Eventually, they plastered her face with population pudding and her wonderfully heart shaped ass crawled away with her stopping to spread it as a means of showing the damage done. Whew!
Scene Two: Candice Nicole, the gal featured on the front cover (dead center in gold thong), was up next as she teased the director; telling him how much she liked a dick in her mouth and asking him if he liked her DSLs. Her playful nature lent itself to his domineering mannerisms, some choking leading to her masturbating on the floor. Her juicy state of being was really appealing and after rubbing out her own first orgasm, she went downstairs to continue doing so on a couch nearby where Brown Suga, John Strong, and Michael Stefano were in the midst of screwing. Brown was taking cock in all three of her holes, including a DP where the guys were pounding away at her while she was lost in ecstasy but Candice’s moans of pleasure alerted the men to the new box in town, drawing away Michael to work with her while John continued pounding away at Brown. As it happened, the performers all merged into a sweaty mess on the original couch where they swapped around and engaged in all sorts of sloppy sex with a lot more vaginal from the looks of it. The titty fucking, the knob slobbing, lesbian licking, and more DPs finished things up with the men dropping wads on the faces of the ladies; neither swapping their load or swallowing it, reducing the heat only a little as a result but dropping the scene’s replay value in the process.
Scene Three: Jada Fire, a personal favorite performer of mine for a long time now, was up next as she played with herself outside in the hot tub on a sunny day wearing the skimpiest of bathing suits (a neon pink outfit that I could floss with). The tease was fun but ended too soon when she was joined by Manuel Ferrara; both of them attracted to one another to the point that they did not waste much time before going at it. She sucked him off and he ate her out, leading to pounding thrusts in her cookie while she streamed forth a lot of dirty talk. He fingered her ass and they moved into the shade to continue their anal antics; Jada fired up by his massive rod drilling her backdoor. They continued in various positions and ended up sweating like crazy on the hall floor but never letting up as they tore into each other like animals. She did PTM and ATM without a second thought, jerking him off as much as blowing him in between penetrative positions. The ending titty fuck and hummer milked his final load into her mouth; their chemistry and passion for sex always higher than most.
Scene Four: Kaylani Cream, a lean gal dressed in a flamboyant red stripper outfit, was up next as she sucked on a moderate sized red jelly dildo. This form of tease was nice to watch with the result being to make Manuel Ferrara and John Strong especially ready for her. Her facial look was not really working for me but her mouth seemed quite serviceable and there was no denying her ass was very solid even before she started working the toy in her ass. This masturbation continued until she was tackling the men with her mouth, soon changing to then boning her like they owned her instead. She was an active ride and did taste testing like a champion as all three of her holes came into play. The scene continued for a long time (it seemed like a long time) but she really did not appear to have much chemistry with them even if it was made up for with their energy. The scene ended when they rubbed out loads to her mouth, Kaylani swallowing their spew and claiming it was “good”.
Scene Five: Melrose Foxxx, a lean gal with a kicking body that did not have all the cottage cheese or junk in the trunk so much as a muscular physique and all natural curves. She stripped off her tiny outfit to take a shower, Manuel Ferrara surprising her as she left the bathroom with his camera. He caught her looking really appealing and as he fingered her cookie, she claimed that it was getting her off so she met him in the living room after dressing back up in her postage stamp sized red bikini again. He pawed her ass and kissed her all over, showing her how sexy she was to him even before he went down on her. She was one of the best looking ladies of the entire movie and her active riding combined with her oral skills made her well worth checking out. It wasn’t a consistently great ride but it did manage to end the movie on a good note, the technical matters holding back the rating more than anything else. He masturbated using her ass cheeks (I like doing that too) and popped his nut on her face for at least a little swallowing.
Bonus Scene: Anal Expedition 5: Marie Luv, the lean black gal on the front DVD cover wearing a green fishnet body stocking, was up next as she took care of Michael Stefano on the stair railing inside the house while Michelle B. masturbated on the couch below. Michelle had a fishnet stocking on too and the passion of the sex was pretty strong as he went from gal to gal to get some nooky. Michelle had a mostly cameo appearance though (set more to tease the audience than him) and fans of black women will appreciate Marie a whole bunch. The anal was pretty well done and there was some taste testing but compared to the other gals, she was only average.
Summary: Bangin’ Black Boxes by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had a wealth of extras adding value to the already appealing scenes but the visual aspects of the movie forced me to drop the rating down a full grade to settle on considering this one as worthy of being Recommended. The dark settings did little to assist in making the ladies look their best for the camera and the inherent issues involved in the way the colors seemed so saturated dragged it down a bit for me but the raw energy and quality of black coochy almost made up for it; so there was replay and strokability beyond what I expected when I picked up my copy. In short, Bangin’ Black Boxes: Special Extended Set was a winner that was in need of technical aspects being polished up, an area Manuel has been slacking off on but the totality of the circumstance still meriting picking up a copy if you like the genre.
