Audio/Video Quality: Deeper 10 Blu-Ray was presented in 1.78:1 widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground in the advanced AVC codec of the high definition format. The lighting was reasonably solid here, as expected given this was Robby's standard type of gonzo, and that meant that the limited amounts of grain and other visual elements used to lend a sense of texture were minimal. If anything, the lighting looked optimized for the Blu-Ray version of the movie, an upgrade as far as this reviewer is concerned and a welcome change from some of the decent but not as vital upgrades offered up by most in the industry. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes, though the composition of the angles was changed up a bit depending on the scene in question; Sidney Michaels handling the editing and other post production duties this time. The DVD mastering revealing no obvious compression artifacts or video noise (the bitrate varying but often staying near the 24 Mbps range) but this was far from one of the most effects laden extravaganzas in the series so don't expect a lot from it. There has also been some debate regarding recent titles by the company coming out in 1080i rather than 1080p, this one registering as 1080i but having the same resolution as any 1080p production (something about the company using a higher than average frame rate causing misleading readings from television sets; data available upon request to prove the advanced codecs used by the company to be the better resolution). Suffice it to say, like all bleeding edge technology, rely on your eyes, not on a generic reading from a TV when deciding how good a picture looks. The audio was presented in a 5.0 Dolby Digital Surround (using 640 Kbps) with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it but the vocals by the cast were lower than usual, almost as if the microphone was pointed at Jack/Robby. At this writing, the company is looking to address the lack of the .1 track on recent productions, but in fairness to them, the audio was as solid as they have offered up so I'm not sure the difference will merit much attention. There also wasn't much separation between the channels but the ladies were almost always clearly heard.
Body of Review: Robby D. is undoubtedly the leading industry director when it comes to number of high definition titles shot, all of them at Digital Playground over the last several years. While most of his peers would rest on their laurels, Robby keeps trying new things, occasionally dropping the ball to his larger audience in an effort to cater to smaller niches of fans that appreciate his lesser known efforts. One of the series he works on that are quite hit or miss with me these days fall into that category, the latest being Deeper 10 Blu-Ray: Lacie Heart (the sequel to Deeper 9). The series is generally known as a means to showcase the company's contract gals or featured hotties that they use a lot. This time, the focal point was beautiful Lacie Heart (with cute Shay Jordan given a scene too); the gal that went on hiatus with boyfriend Scott Nails to "take care of some personal matters". While I hope that she comes back in the future, I can't help but wonder if she would look any better than she did in her two scenes here; the stunning blond combining a youthful innocence with a shapely figure men drool over. I prefer the series that last longer and offer better extras but as Digital Playground slowly (painfully so at times) releases previously shot footage of gals like Lacie, fans certainly have a lot to look forward to. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Lindsay Meadows, a lean gal with long dark hair, was up first as she peeped on showering stud, Marco Banderas. She was wearing a sheer white dress as the guy cleaned up, Lindsay teasing him once she caught his eye. Within moments, he opened the glass door to join her and the two kissed as if long lost lovers. He went down on her, she jerked him off before slobbing his knob, and she soon had her legs spread to allow him easy entry into her moist biscuit. Her aggressive oral efforts were the best part of the scene for me (at least as the footage was edited) but she also seemed to like grinding herself onto his cock during the vaginal penetration. Several positions of pounding led to her taking his load of population pudding to her mouth, savoring the facial even if the scene left me wanting more chemistry and passion.
Scene Two: Lacie Heart, the beauty featured on the front cover, was up next as she crawled around the living room floor with a fluffy bunny tail toy in her ass. She was teasing partner Scott Nails and he played along as her master, offering her a carrot (yes, the vegetable) before replacing it with his cock. She gave him a hearty hummer, looking into his eyes to enhance the effect as well as show a greater bond between them than usual, the gal practically glowing as she satiated his need to unleash seed. Scott pulled her anal toy out before going down on the cutie, taking his own sweet time to tease her as she had done to him. They engaged in a few positions of passive vaginal sex before she took his large dick in her ass; the gal barely holding on as he did all of the work. I find her to be exceptionally cute but her ability to actively handle his penis is rarely good enough for my tastes so the scene had marginal value for me even when she willingly took the load he rubbed out to her mouth (as she sucked the carrot again).
Scene Three: Shay Jordan, the attractive brunette featured on the left side of the front cover, was up next with muscular Tommy Gunn as she paraded around the house in her sheer panties and sexy get up. She took a piss on his clothing so he spanked her like he owned her, generating some heat before the oral antics began. Both of them worked up a sweat as she was bent over to bear his brutality, Shay smiling as if that was the outcome she had hoped for all along. The blowjob was probably the most enthusiastic one of the movie too, Shay giving his knob the oral polishing it needed before he tore into her cookie hard. Shay was an active vaginal rider throughout the scene, bouncing on cock like a champion, and while the pop shot was minimal (and long-delayed according to the BTS comments), Shay appeared to have gotten off as a result of the pairing.
Scene Four: Lacie Heart, this time wearing red & black see through underwear, was up one more time as she let Scott Nails continue to dominate her. He put a blindfold on her and smacked her lightly with a riding crop, causing her to try and second guess his actions (major leg blemish on the gal though...ewww). He was dressed as if going on a job interview for the mob, tormenting the lady as he kept just out of her range until he was ready to get some head. Once again, Lacie gave a decent blowjob, inhaling his rod with her mouth as her hand guided her to go deeply onto it. Scott reciprocated after he set her on the couch, making her wonder just what he would do and when he would do it to keep her from getting too complacent. They screwed fairly well with an emphasis on vaginal but her asshole stretched by his cock a bit for a second bout of butt boning. The laod was much larger this time and he poured it all over her crotch, Lacie tasting it a bit as he continued tapping her labia with his semi erect penis.
Scene Five: Carmel Moore, the curvy British gal with multicolored hair, was up last as she had a scene with countryman Ben English; the two fighting with him as the winner. He took charge of her after she took offense at being called a "cunt"; Ben placing a ball gag in her mouth as he spanked and paddled the vibrant woman. Having left a series of red marks on her ass cheeks, he continued working her over until her arousal took over and she lost the sight restraint in favor of servicing him orally. She was enthusiastic as she choked on his meaty member, discarding her BTS comments about wanting a small "Willy" to work with (shucks, there went my chance to work with her). She was the most consistently energetic rider of the movie and that led to Ben dousing her face with a wealth of wand wonder, Carmel licking at it a bit before the credits rolled.
Summary: Deeper 10 Blu-Ray by director Robby D. for release by Digital Playground next month might not have been the top title of recent times but fans of Lacie Heart will certainly appreciate the company providing them with some new material to stroke with so I rated this as a Rent It. Should Lacie remain retired from porn, scenes like this may prove all the more important, but the other ladies earned some nods for their roles in the fuck flick too, giving fans of vignette style something worth checking out. In short, Deeper 10 Blu-Ray: Lacie Heart didn't work for me as well as Deeper 9 did but your personal tastes in ladies might elevate the equation a touch so give this one a look. Oh, and the up side to the high definition version is that the picture looked decidedly better, applying a frame rate of 29.97 that causes disc players to register as 1080i when the resolution is the same 1920X1080 that any 1080p production would provide.
