Audio/Video Quality: Crack Her Jack 8 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director John Leslie for distribution by Evil Angel. As noted previously, John has long since surpassed the desire to show crystal clear visuals, preferring to focus his efforts on the kind of raw energy and rougher edged look that most of his peers only seem to fall into by mistake, though I'll be the first to admit I'd like his movies to revert back to a more traditional & well lit approach if at all possible. The levels of grain, video noise, and even pattern effects were okay this time and the action lost nothing due to minor flaws on the technical side (the movie was still hot but the bitrate typically hovered in under 3 Mbps and it showed). The composition of the camera angles showed some care put into them, making the ladies virtually always look their best, and this is the strength of John's directorial ability more than anything else (as a producer, he also tends to make fine selections of cast). The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio track (in 192 Kbps) was as basic as gonzo porn came be, with limited talking going on outside of John's own directions in the background. The cast could be heard moaning & groaning but this was definitely a limited selection based on audio quality.
Body of Review: John Leslie is one of the remaining legends in porn that hasnít gone on to retirement gracefully, still showing he has what it takes to compete with his younger peers at Evil Angel in the movies he directs. Iíve watched the guyís performances for the better part of 30 years, his directed flicks a quantum leap by comparison in many ways to his work in front of the camera. As much as I admire his better works though, some of his titles in recent years have been really hit or miss for me; taking the artistic approach further than my pecker cares to go on a regular basis. His latest DVD is Crack Her Jack 8, the sequel to Crack Her Jack 7 that I found on the weak side, a series that tends to show some nice ass but little special to recommend from my experience. This time, the casting seemed to be a few steps better than usual so I braced myself and hoped for the best, ready to appreciate anything John sent my way. If this sounds intriguing to you, hereís a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Dee, the sexy Puerto Rican that has been in porn a very long time, was up first as she posed for stills on the second story of a loft while lucky Michael Stefano watched her from below with the director. The couple was introduced and hit it off really quickly; her light blue lingerie pushed to the side for him to orally satisfy. He spread her for deeper access and she looked better than ever, her own oral skills coming into play before too long. The knob slobbing led to the pair fucking in a variety of positions, Michael doing almost all of the work as he tore into her cookie but then I suspected this would be the case having seen her scores of times in the past. There was a fair bit of taste testing and she easily took his population pudding to her face; his semen running down her happy chin to finish things up.
Scene Two: Keeani Lei, the Asian gal seen on the lower right hand corner of the front cover bending over, was up next in the pool room with Mick Blue and Mr. Pete. Mick got to her first and started rubbing her until she dropped to her knees to blow him; the gal lacking in the looks department for my tastes but showing a love of sucking cock that I could not deny. Pete walked in on them and she showed off her dress some more before demonstrating her skills on Mick some more; Pete whipping his dick out to get some of his own from her mouth. She alternated between sucking them off and jerking their meat, leading to the men taking turns fucking her as she bent over the pool table. They were a bit rough with her but she showed some energy during her active riding, eventually doing a DP as the men pummeled her pussy and ass at the same time. She was less appreciative of the two men screwing her at once but put up with it all the same before begging for their spew in her mouth. A lot of it missed and ran down her face but she continued to provide post coital sucking until the camera faded out; making it a better scene than the last one.
Scene Three: Roxy Deville, the hotty whose ass was featured on the center of the front cover (and the gal herself on the lower left hand corner of the cover), was up next on the staircase teasing with sweet little Chelsie Rae as they slowly worked their way up to studly Marco Banderas. Roxy was the curvier babe of the pair but Chelsie certainly added a lot of appeal too with the gals teasing as the director encouraged them verbally. The tease should have lasted a lot longer but I understand how things work so they were best suited playing with each other and Marco given the circumstances. They double teamed Marcoís meaty member with zeal and cooperation, aggressively attacking him to his delight before Chelsie sat on his face. Marco then started pounding his pecker into her pussy as she ate Roxy, their roles reversed more than a few times before Chelsie bounced on his cock when it was driven into her ass. Both gals satisfied, they shared the ending facial nicely; showing decent chemistry to make this a highlight scene of the movie for me.
Scene Four: Jasmine Rouge, a seductive blond with great curves, was up next in bed with Titus Steel and Zenza Raggi. Initially, she was blowing Titus when the director and Zenza walked in on them but she never missed a beat as she deepthroated and otherwise teased the trio. Thankfully, John stayed behind the camera but Jasmine liked cock and treated her partners to a lot of oral and some titty fucking before they began screwing her. Her hairy bush was most receptive to cock and one would fuck her face while the other would drill her pussy and ass; the very short DP tearing her up until they planted their seed on her face. I loved watching her ass cheeks ripple but she could have put more feeling into the scene to make it work more for me; the scene still strokable with some replay value but not as much as the previous two in the movie.
Scene Five: Kaci Starr, the pudgy gal in the red dress seen on the upper left hand corner of the cover, was up last with Erik Everhard and Tee Reel, after she entered the house. Tee got to her first and started the warm up on her curvy frame, the man showing a lot of class as he treated her the way she wanted to be treated before helping her stretch her ass with an anal plug. More toy work ensued and she loved her own juices during the taste testing; Kaci sucking on the black cock like it was a lifeline in no time. Tee started banging her before they moved to another room where Erik joined them to assist; her mouth and pussy filled before the plug came out and a penis put in its place. Erik was relatively subdued here, almost as if ordered to be that way by the director, but she kept up the rhythm nicely and only truly slowed down once the limited DP began. They finished up by rubbing out loads to her face; the scene good enough to elevate the rating just enough to earn it a recommendation.
Summary: Crack Her Jack 8 by director John Leslie for Evil Angel was worth a rating of Recommended thanks to the replay value, the quality of the overall cast, and the manner in which most of the scenes had some stroke value. Roxy and Chelsieís scene was the top of the ladder here but depending on your tastes, some of the others showed some solid performances too. In short, Crack Her Jack 8 was a step up from Crack Her Jack 7 in most ways; not even close to the best work of the director but better than a lot of what you will find in the gonzo market if you arenít huge on extensive tease and prefer a slightly artistic twist in your porn.
