Cast: Alektra Blue, Pat Myne, Brianna Love, Mark Wood, Chavon Taylor, James Deen, Chelsie Rae, Harmony, Mark Ashley, Maya Hills
Length: 168:07 minutes
Date of Production: 1/30/2008
Extra's: The extras were light here, a photogallery, a cardboard slipcase, and a cumshot recap hardly adding any value for me while the 6:19 minute Behind the Scenes was far too short to showcase any of the performers; Chavon Taylor talking about this being her first anal and Harmony getting the rest of the spotlight to prance around while the other ladies were left out in the cold. Sadly, there was no bonus scene as advertised and there was also no striptease material as promised, putting me on edge about what other surprises I could expect from the production.
Audio/Video Quality: Filled to the Rim 5 was presented in an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen color as shot by director Ray Bones for Diabolic Digital. Having only seen a limited amount of his works in the past, I was ready for anything and to be frank, he did a decent job here with the lighting helping to minimize the grain, video noise, and other visual flaws that are too common to porn flicks these days. The fleshtones leaned a little too much to being over saturated with yellow tint (perhaps from a lack of properly setting the white balance on the camera for the lighting) and the camera angles were edited too aggressively at times but even the over use of close up shots was not too bad here as far as I was concerned. The bitrate was almost always hovering in the mid 5 Mbps area but the picture struck me as being less crisp than similar efforts by the company over the years, perhaps the compression ratio or other technical aspect weakening the picture more than a little bit in the process used to convert the scenes to DVD's MPEG-2 codec. The audio was presented in 1.0 monaural using the standard 192 Kbps bitrate, generally sounding lackluster with no depth, separation, or major range in the dynamic of the track. The vocals were minimal in most cases and the background noises rarely noticed; the automatic gain such that it did bug me at times.

Body of Review: Ray Bones is one of the new directors for Diabolic Digital that I have become acquainted with of late, his latest release making it my way full of some heated solo fun. His latest work is Filled to the Rim 5, an anal creampie movie picking up where former director David Perry left off by using domestic ladies instead of the European gals so common in low end gonzo productions. I was hoping that Ray would provide something of an upgrade to previous efforts in the series I had watched, some of the older scenes working fairly well but far from the kind of quality I had long associated with the company and its directors. That said, here is a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Alektra Blue, the brunette with great looking eyes (and other body parts) seen on the front cover, was up first to establish the new formula of the series now that there is a new director at the helm. She did not get to tease very much before using a modest glass dildo on her cookie, rubbing her crotch as she kicked back on the couch to provide some appealing masturbation action. That she was so inclined to engage in taste testing was a plus and her frisky attitude was as good as ever, Alektra trying some early anal (and ATM) to show where the show was heading. The action was interrupted by Pat Myne joining in for some POV head, the gal slobbing his knob aggressively as he pulled off her bikini. Remember that Pat is the guy that "made" Stormy according to many people (bringing her into the big leagues before they split up) so even as the average meat puppet, he has earned some respect from the masses. Alektra rode him actively in both vaginal and anal sex too, pumping herself on him before licking her own juices off of his rod at regular intervals. There was no chemistry between them but as a performance, both lived up to expectations and the ending anal creampie sure seemed to be real.
Scene Two: Brianna Love, the hotty with so much junk in her trunk that she really wowed them in 2007, was up next as she gave up some fine ass tease in a patterned blue bikini on and around a couch. The simplistic setting did not weaken her appeal in the slightest, perhaps even focusing the attention of the audience more as a result. She teased and masturbated too, looking as hot as ever while she coaxed the camera into exploring her ever closer before some toy use used to spread her with some good vibrations. She even managed to wrap her thickly glossed lips around the toy before nearly losing it inside of her holes, the booty shake offered up making it clear that she was having fun. Her partner for the scene was Mark Wood and he has always shown a wonderful devotion to ladies like Brianna; assisting her in getting off at least a few times here as well. The toy became secondary as he began replacing it with his cock, the blowjob left for later as the two bumped uglies with a sense of abandon. While the vaginal screwing was captured fairly well, there was a great need of polishing up the lackluster camera work this time, the anal action recorded better since she was less apt to move so much. The anal was also the focus of most of the penetrative sex, eventually showing Brianna rubbing her cookie as she took the population pudding deep inside her anal cavity to shit out on the carpet. For me, the pairing was better though due as much to the chemistry as my passion for Brianna Love, making this a good scene for replay value. Whew!
Scene Three: Chavon Taylor, a curvy gal in what she claimed was her first on screen anal, was up next and she showed some rough patches during the tease too; the camera far too close to show her at her best. She was playful and slightly nervous, perhaps anticipating the modest member of scene partner James Deen plugging all three of her holes after the suitable warm up in the living room. The lack of music helped keep all the attention on her too, the camera tending to stay low and look up at her for some reason. She walked over to James to blow him with a modicum of passion though he did not reciprocate in the slightest before drilling her clam. She was passive at first, taking his pounding without any realistic emotion (despite some tossed in vocals that struck me as fake), the chunky chick getting slightly better when she was on top of him but nothing major. The anal creampie seemed as real as in the rest of the scenes, her blown out asshole retaining most of the semen to make it a low point for me.
Scene Four: Chelsie Rae, an extremely cute brunette here (having swapped out her blond look for something new), was up next and the gal was very much into her metal toy. She spit on it and savored it orally before taking the plunge with penetration, the masturbation plying both holes before Mark Wood walked over to her to get his dick sucked. Chelsie is an oral expert and she gave a splendid performance here; Mark complimenting her looks as she deepthroated him so effectively. The oral led to the penetrative sex where she showed she was no wallflower while aggressively bouncing on his cock in several positions, the missionary work being the only time she was limited to a passive role. Her vocals included some fine dirty talk that elevated the scene and her connection to him enough to make it clear that they liked each other enough to go out of their way to get each other off repeatedly (though technically, he only popped once that I could see in the form of the advertised anal creampie). There were some funny farting noises here too and I sometimes wonder why Chelsie is still such an unsung lady after so many heated scenes like this one. Yum!
Scene Five: Harmony, an attractive gal that always seems to be just slightly out of phase with the industry in terms of how she comes across (performing for herself rather than the viewer), was up next as she teased in her panty hose and lingerie. She kept pulling it down and then up again as if to give just a peek of the heavenly experience she offered up. The basic formula was the same as she masturbated with a vibrator but I did not hear it buzzing so the effect was not the same for either of us (her or me) yet seeing it plunge deep within her perfect pucker was kind of sexy. She verbally continued with the dirty talk as a means of luring Mark Ashley over to her; his face jamming itself deep between her ass cheeks for some smothering. Mark loved the taste of her ass but wanted much more, skipping a lot of other acts to go straight into her ass as he hammered away. He did manage to bone her pussy and mouth too but this scene seemed markedly shorter in length and as active as she was, it made sense that he could not hold off as long as the others, busting his nut into her ass after a technical DP and some fluid dynamics. The resulting cum fart was discolored and believable, though I'd have been okay without the visual.
Scene Six: Maya Hills, an exotic cutie that has made a number of fans over the last few years due to her anal antics, was up last and her masturbation sequence seemed almost as if she had not had any sex in awhile. Her colorful bikini was cast aside as she fingered her pussy and ass, the dirty talk offered up in a nearly POV fashion as she coaxed the camera to explore her increasingly heated solo scene. This was slowed down by James Deen; the man walking in on her with a full (if small) erection, Maya going full out crazy on the cock with her oral skills before showing him how little control he really had during the penetrative sex. The vaginal and anal positions were such that she was virtually always active, the camera again too intimate to capture her as well as others in the field have done. Maya was less active in the anal portions of the scene but engaged in the usual taste testing and oral as James did his best (not very successfully either) at trying to look like he was in charge of the action. The anal creampie this time showed him as much jerking off to her gape as truly busting a nut in her ass (lots of farting here too) but she was in fine form all the same.
Summary: Filled to the Rim 5 by director Ray Bones for Diabolic Digital showed more of his potential at directing than the last release of his I reviewed but given the quality of the cast, the replay value, and the strokability observed, I thought it earned a rating of at least Recommended. More polishing up on the technical side of things, be it the camera work, the lighting, and/or the editing would likely have elevated this one another notch up the ladder but there was a solid amount of fuck for the buck to appreciate so fans of the cast or anal creampies might want to check this one out. In short, Filled to the Rim 5 was definitely a step up from the previous director of the series but the domestic cast certainly helped make it better too with my concerns about missing extras and technical matters almost dropping it down a notch too.
