Audio/Video Quality: Bodacious Booty 2 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Jonni Darkko for Evil Angel. The bitrate hovered on the higher end of the scale much of the time, typically in the mid 6 Mbps range though jumping around a fair bit too; going higher as often as not. The lighting was often flat and solid, reducing the amount of grain, video noise, and other flaws directly related to the technical aspect. The fleshtones were perfect with the crisp look of clarity I like when Jonni is spot on with his work. The composition was almost always favorable to the ladies and the editing seemed to enhance the look of the show more than a little bit, thanks to the extensive efforts of Eddie Powell who also made the cool DVD menus stand out with his skilful touch (my only complaint being the inability to skip to a specific point in the movie with the way it was mastered). In general, this was another very visually appealing piece of work though thanks to the efforts of the production staff as well as the cast. The audio was provided in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English track (at a 192 Kbps) was thumping but truncated at the right moment after the tease to allow the vocals to get the spotlight during the scenes.
Body of Review: Jonni Darkko often struck me as Evil Angel’s least defined director; not really standing out compared to his peers for a long time. The same could be said of his movie releases since many of the others would release far longer (often double disc sets) titles with the sexual repertoire more expansive yet over time, Jonni not only started to grow on me but as his skills evolved; I found his more subtle approach containing more replay value than I thought before. How much of that was due to his hiring a singularly talented editor, I couldn’t say but the end result is that he took a few spots on the recent 2007’s Top Porn List and was in the running for more. While I do not get his releases before or even close to street date these days, I get the benefit of not relying so heavily on the marketing hype associated with early reviews so often; a kind of hind sight (if you’ll pardon the pun) that I enjoy after getting so many titles before anyone else from other companies. The latest such title of his is Bodacious Booty 2, the sequel to Bodacious Booty 1 that I liked so much long ago. The emphasis of the five scenes was on ladies with rounded rumps having a great time sexually with men that were into them. This alone would make it a winner but the names on the cover showed a lot of care going into the planning of the show as well. If that sounds good to you, here’s a quick look at those scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were worn by the men:
Scene One: Brianna Love, a personal favorite of mine in 2007 with a healthy sized ass and cute face, was up first to tease in sexy fashion while wearing a red fetish outfit with no panties before showing her love of black cock courtesy of seasoned veteran Sean Michaels. Once the tease finished, he started orally servicing her bent over body; the two kissing before she actively climbed onto his cock and started impaling her cookie. The whimpers of pleasure she provided enhanced the moment but the sparks flew as their chemistry was so obviously in play. Their sweaty bodies intermingled some more in numerous positions and a close look at the action revealed Jonni’s willingness to provide a wider array of camera angles and transitional edits than most; effectively making the scene more fun. It didn’t look so much polished as it looked like it was designed to capture the energy between the two but in many ways it did look better handled on a technical level than his peers at the company provide. Brianna did taste testing as though she loved to do it, took the facial very nicely, and savored the semen with some post coital sucking before they kissed one last time. The population pudding went all over the place thanks to his sizable load and it was a solid starting scene.
Scene Two: Annette Schwarz, the blond anal queen seen on the left hand side of the cover, was up next with brunette mentor Sandra Romain (seen on the right side of the front cover), in a scene shot before Sandra unofficially retired last year. Their tease in sheer black undies was hot with the split screen a nice effect to showcase both of them at the same time (but not overdone as others do) and when they converged on Mark Ashley in the hallway to start power sucking his cock; their comparative strengths were displayed quite well. Sandra was the more aggressive of the ladies and she shined his rod up handily with her oral skill, Annette playing second fiddle but adding her own spin to the action. Annette has really been climbing the ranks in porn of late and is far & away the heir apparent to Sandra’s “anal queen” crown. There was toy use and a lot of anal taking place but if the first scene focused on playful energy; these three were driven by a deep seated lust. Annette shined as she helped Mark get Sandra off but both ladies had ample opportunities to put their best skills on display and I’m not ashamed to admit that I took a breather (a non-sex breather) before finishing up the scene description. Suffice it to say, and as I told her at the show, Annette will always be welcome in Houston though I suspect a visit would leave the world with one less reviewer (killing me in the best recycling scenario possible). Both gals did anal and Sandra drained Mark dry at the end as he jerked off to Annette’s face; the ladies cumswapping the load back and forth before swallowing.
Scene Three: Raven Black, a curvy gal with neon red hair, was up next as she teased outside with some oil and a polka dotted bikini. I’ll admit the garish hair color was not to my liking and the implant scars stood out thanks to the otherwise great camera work displayed but the rhythm of the tease convinced me to keep an open mind. The scene transitioned from tease to her blowing gifted Byron Long in the living room, her active oral skills handling his massive member fairly well even if she could not deep throat him (not for lack of trying though). The messy hummer and handjob left him hard so he started banging her cookie in doggy; though she was a passive ride at first. Thankfully, she really picked up the pace to bounce on cock like crazy once she was on top of him; increasing the tempo before taking his wad into her mouth to play with on the glass table before swallowing.
Scene Four: Bianca Dagger and Ricki White, another couple of women with fine backsides most men would love to explore, were up next with Mark Ashley in the living room. They did face sitting and jerked him off, each of the trio giving some oral loving before the pounding penetration began. This scene showed the performers combining some of the playfulness of the first scene with the heated lust from the second scene; nearly getting the balance “just right” in many ways. While I found the ladies from the earlier scenes more to my liking (personal tastes), these two held their own much like I did while watching them in action; the emphasis being on oral and vaginal sex but including some anal too. The facials at the end did not include cumswapping or apparent swallowing but didn’t need to given the demeanor the ladies displayed.
Scene Five: Rachel Starr, a very physically attractive lady with nice curves and a skillful manner of using them, was up last in the living room with Christian. I know a lot of people bag on his universal sexuality but ultimately, Rachel showed a lot of attraction to the guy which elevated their chemistry. He massaged her heart shaped ass before she rested it on his face; Christian orally working her over until she started reciprocating in a 69 position with him. She slobbed his knob and gingerly mounted him, surprising me with the ferocity with which she jumped onto him and rode; doing some powerful oral on him during the resulting taste testing too. This was another scene lacking anal and I thought it was the better for it, the shower action towards the end making me want to see even more of it in the future. While not quite as full of chemistry and passion as some of the other scenes, it provided a good ending to the movie all the same with Rachel sucking out his load before the credits ran.
Summary: Bodacious Booty 2 by director Jonni Darkko for Evil Angel was not his longest, kinkiest, or most technically perfect movie of the last few years but it had enough fuck for the buck thanks to the energy and replay values displayed (not to mention extras) that I thought it merited a rating of Highly Recommended. There were tangible factors and some tougher to pin down but it was clear that the movie was not simply a performer driven showcase bit like others of this nature; meaning a wider audience should find it very strokable. In short, Bodacious Booty 2, like Bodacious Booty 1 before it, was a heated look at sexually enthusiastic performers that had the added appeal of using ladies with very appealing asses.
