Extras: For most fans, the best extras will be the 3 bonus scenes as mentioned below. They were all solo scenes (in keeping with the theme of the movie) and each had its own appeal. My only problem with them was that at least two of them were from previous volumes in the series and not labeled as such, not amounting to as much of a bonus if you already have them in your collection. They totaled 31:17 minutes as a whole and were fun to watch, if not the best from the series to date. The 19:37 minute long Behind the Scenes feature was a better unique extra therefore, allowing some of the cast to chat and discuss their roles here as well as provide more sex footage (and photoshoot material). Some of you may enjoy the 7:42 minute long Foot Fetish recap from the show as well, taking bits and pieces of the scenes that deal with feet at least a little bit; though it did nothing for me. There was a similar recap of "orgasm material taken from the scenes lasting 7:30 minutes as well, though out of context, most of it looked faker than usual. There was a photogallery, six trailers, and an advertising side to the cover as well.

Audio/Video Quality: All By Myself 3 was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color by director Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel. The fleshtones were fairly accurate, the lighting decent, with the visual flaws like grain and video noise about average, thanks in part to the camera work by William H. Nutsack and Michael Cates (editing by Bruce Carter and Patrick). The composition of the camera angles was almost always the best in terms of making the gals look great even if some scenes were designed around a pervert peeper that didn't work as well with the bitrate varying more than usual here but typically staying in the 4 Mbps area for the video. Patrick has made better looking titles in the recent past but he did manage to handle the thematic elements better than most seem able to do, spending the kind of time needed to make the scenarios work on a deeper level. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo audio was in 192 Kbps and appeared to be without much language skills displayed (English probably not spoken by the majority of the cast) though more basic in most ways than expected with little separation and limited dynamic range but it didn't get in the way of the heat when it appeared in the action either. Some of the audio mixing was on the light end, needing to be ramped up to be heard, but at least the music wasn't as invasive as in some movies by others these days.
Body of Review: Patrick Collins is the founder of Elegant Angel, one of the companies that literally changed the face of the industry so many years ago. So many innovations have come out of the company that it's easy to forget its humble beginnings. Over the years, many directors have come and gone but Patrick himself always stuck it out, despite rumors he was actively looking for buyers and with various setbacks. In the past couple of years, he has led his team on a mission to revive and rebuild their past glory, succeeding to a degree with some of the best gonzo available on the market, bar none. Running the business has certainly reduced his ability to direct though, his latest gem being All By Myself 3, a female masturbation title with a number of beautiful ladies "self serving" their needs in front of the camera. The back cover said it like this: "I like watching hot cover girl types lose their poise...and cum hard... Beautiful girls, in all their involuntary twitching perfection! Penthouse Pet Andie Valentino, Hustler cover girl Carli Banks, and Karlie Montana, Penthouse Feature Layout, round out a stellar selection of feminine perfection." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used or population pudding split on a face for those still interested:
Scene One: Karlie Montana, a foxy redhead with an incredible body, was up first in front of a mirror wearing pink; her thong riding that perfect ass of hers as she pranced and posed. She used a glass dildo and pink pocket rocket to get off with, the moaning and taste testing alone enough to make me sport wood but the anal penetration really sweet!
Scene Two: Andie Valentino, the Penthouse Pet of the Month seen on the front cover, was up next wearing black stripper shoes and matching undies. Her act was far less polished than Karlie's so I could see why she went second, relying too heavily on looks and too little on skill, but there was no denying how appealing she was. Her pink vibrator went in her sweet biscuit, her moaning less realistic than I'd like but still showing her to look good.
Scene Three: Carli Banks, a perky blond with great pride in her boobs, was up next as she talked on the couch with a familiar female voice (guess who?). She went right to it from there; grabbing a vibrator in no time and leaving her 80's style workout clothing on as she showed the "one way" she can get off for real. The use of two vibrators seemed cut off too quickly but she was cuter than ever!
Scene Four: Cassandra Cruz, a sultry Latina wearing pink undies, stripped those off seductively in front of the fireplace to the thumping beat of generic music, licking her finger from time to time. She used an assortment of toys on herself to an effective pleasure session, the largest toy inserted (a rabbit habit or derivative thereof) being the bets from the appearances, with her small moans making me a believer.
Scene Five: Louisa Lanewood, a gal I'm not familiar with to any major degree, was up next in the bathroom as she showed her flexibility in front of the mirror. The oiling up sequence was hot and her curvy little ass was sweet! The scene stopped mid way though and showed her in a goofy outfit bent over, the toys used from there on in. Still, I'd have licked them clean for her.
Scene Six: Nikki Coxxx, an older redhead, was in bed with a large toy. The clitoral stimulator did not appear to be on the maximum setting but the main portion was buzzing away as she drilled herself, the moisture easy to see on her milky white skin. It was my least favorite scene of the day but those that like her will certainly feel differently.
Scene Seven: Nikita Love, a white haired blond with some nice curves, was up next as she made some lemonade in the kitchen. This continued until she was next seen with a pocket rocket and other toys in a plain chair. She had a huge clitoris and her large breasts appealed to me as well but it was far too short for the movie (and the music needed to go away).
Scene Eight: Kayden Faye, a lean and heavily tattooed gal, was up last as she did the same basic stuff as the others; including smoking in her repertoire and more foot stuff up front. When she was using the toys though, it was like she was grocery shopping until she was almost done so for me, it was a weaker than needed ending to a decent solo flick.
Bonus Scene: All By Myself 1: Samantha Ryan, a lean and very cute blonde with bad taste in boyfriends, was up first as she played with herself in the bathroom in front of the mirror. The blinds to the outdoors were open and she took her time putting on lipstick, undies, and shoes before moving to the living room to slowly caress her body. The thumping music stopped by the time she undressed again and started drilling herself with the large aqua colored vibrator, looking very much like she was getting off on the couch before the abrupt edit showed her going for round two in the over lit bathroom with a pocket rocket of some sort from Doc Johnson and foot fetish action to boot.
Bonus Scene: All By Myself 2: Tea, a lean and very cute blonde with nice breasts, was up first as she played with herself on the staircase landing, losing her pink dress rather quickly to diddle herself with a large flesh colored dildo. The thumping music stopped by the time she undressed again and started drilling herself with the large fake cock, looking very much like she was getting off even before the scene showed her going for round two with a pocket rocket of some sort from Doc Johnson.
Summary: by director Patrick Collins for Elegant Angel was a winner for fans of ladies getting off. I know porn is full of hype but I believed that many of the ladies were truly having orgasms, and while this selection of ladies might not have lived up to the original volume of the series with All By Myself 1, thanks to a nice diversity of performers and their various means of getting off, I still felt a rating of Recommended was fair since All By My Self 3 provided what it said it would. As expected, Patrick proved his talents yet again so fans of female solo scenes will like this one a whole lot.
