Cast: Ginger Lynn, Tom Byron, Amber Lynn, Keisha, Kylie Ireland, Lisa Ann
Length: 156:16 minutes
Date of Production: 2/9/2008
Extras: The best extra was the 22:58 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Craig Daze that amounted to three separate interviews with some of the ladies (Ginger Lynn, Keisha, Amber Lynn) in a bit called Chattin' With the Goldies (thematically about the ladies from the 80's). Each gal gave some interesting anecdotes and showed off their body but I wished all of them had been given the chance. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, a slip cover for the DVD case, and spam at the beginning of the movie.
Audio/Video Quality: Seasoned Players 4 was presented in a 1.33:1 full frame color offering as shot by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures in the MPEG-2 codec. The camera work mixed it up this time with a lot of tease footage taken outside by the pool where the natural light definitely enhanced the look of the ladies before they moved inside. The video maintained a bitrate of mid 5 Mbps most of the time, reducing the obvious compression artifacts to almost none and each scene provided solid fleshtones that appeared to be accurate. The composition of the scenes was consistent too with the picture not always optimal (looking slightly faded out at times) but as far as Tom's work is concerned, it was shot with the ladies in mind; making the gals look their best for the most part. The editing was generally decent, but not showing more skill than the last time I checked out one of his movies for review, albeit I wished some of the additional tease footage was left in the scenes instead of left in the extras section of the DVD. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English offering at 192 Kbps. There was no noticeable separation between the tracks and the dynamic range was limited but I could hear the ladies and the music was not a factor once the scenes started in earnest.

Body of Review: Tom Byron has been associating with the porn industry since leaving Houston and setting out to make it big, now heading up his own company, Tom Byron Pictures, where he gets to nail a bevy a beauties in a wide variety of fuck flicks. Every year, Tom goes out of his way to provide some seriously strokable titles that are thematically appreciated all across the board, now tackling the MILF phenomena with a major release called Seasoned Players 4. I haven't seen the series in the past but this caught my attention quickly when I saw the cover sported Ginger Lynn, Amber Lynn, and Keisha (all high end performers in the 1980's) but Kylie Ireland and Lisa Ann as well (both being adored performers from the 90's up to this day). In the sense that a MILF is a "mother I'd like to fuck", most of the ladies qualify for the title, though Kylie and Lisa merely look the part of the curvy older woman in need of seed, and such a casting feat as this is bound to reap the rewards of the decision. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that some condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Ginger Lynn, the featured blond on the center of the front cover, was up first with some tease and an interview with Tom Byron. I've been watching these to go at it in scenes since before the original New Wave Hookers and this year marks her 25th in the industry so even though she's retired a bunch of times, her fans keep calling her back for more. A true MILF, Ginger was not the scrawny little sexpot she used to be, fleshing out like most of her fans while maintaining her sexy eyes and cute face. The pair commented that she hadn't fucked him on camera for twenty years and made it a sort of celebration to that effect, their personal chemistry noticed from the very beginning; even making it come across as a clash of the titans (Houston vs. Chicagoan or Rumble in the bunghole) though they like each other. She got her digs in on Ron Jeremy (let's just say they have their history together) and the scene was on (with a nod to Mark Kernes from AVN sitting nearby! They went to the bedroom where Tom savored her ass through her red lingerie, brushing it aside to get the real deal before she started giving him head. She also tossed his salad at length, but her hummer was particularly aggressive too. There was an active vaginal ride and plenty of anal as well, Ginger gyrating her hips a number of times just like she used to when she was the Queen of Porn. He gave her a combination anal creampie and jerked off on her ass cheeks, Ginger purring as she tasted his finger and they kissed. Whew!
Scene Two: Amber Lynn, another star of the 1980's as seen on the middle of the cover (to the left of Ginger; the blond hair and black lingerie looking good), followed suit with Tom Byron, reminiscing about their first scene (that was supposed to go to Traci Lords before that shit storm happened). Amber took her last name due to the popularity of Ginger and some of the porn press tried to make it seem as though they feuded all the time but I never got that impression from the movies they were in. The scene had the pair using a condom and she was surprisingly fit; Tom trying to use Ginger's performance to coax some anal out of Amber. They moved to the bed where Amber blew him like she was on fire, then tossed his salad and gave him a handjob before he fucked her pussy. She was active when on top and they also shared a sense of chemistry together, not surprisingly given the way the industry treats the old school people most of the time (causing them to support each other more). They didn't do anal but she rubbed out his load during the blowjob rather well, making her a solid choice as the second level MILF Superstar of the show.
Scene Three: Keisha, the busty brunette seen on the lower right hand corner of the cover, was up next as she discussed meeting Tom Byron 22 years ago (she got into porn in 1986) when they went out together (seeing Ruthless People at the theater). The memories flowed regarding their myriad of experiences but the outdoor location was distracting (and would have been better during the sex itself). They were in the living room set full of black couches when he slowly undressed her, Tom doing oral on her before she reciprocated (no salad tossing though), leading to a vaginal fuck with a condom. She was far more active on top of Tom then she was underneath, pumping her bountiful booty as her pussy swallowed him whole. The scene finished up with a titty fuck and he doused her breasts with population pudding.
Scene Four: Kylie Ireland, the sexy redhead seen on the upper middle of the left hand side of the cover, was then interviewed in front of the fireplace by Tom Byron; their first time being in Twist of Fate for Wicked Pictures. After congratulating each other for winning two AVN Awards each this year, they carried on like long time friends, showing some sparks as some tease shots of Kylie were played. They covered a lot of ground before moving to the black couch, Kylie's business woman attire a stark change from what I'm used to seeing her wear in scenes. She went right to blowing him too, actively inhaling his rod just as he reciprocated on her (yes, she tossed his salad too!). That led to them fucking just as aggressively in both vaginal as well as anal; Kylie showing that her comparative youth was an asset. It was the best scene of the show and while I liked the entire cast, Kylie has been especially favored for the last 14 years so she had a built in advantage. The scene ended with a titty fuck too, Tom jerking off to her face and Kylie sucking him dry. Yum!
Scene Five: Lisa Ann, the curvy brunette seen on the upper right hand corner, was the newcomer of the cast coming in just after Kylie in 1994 as she gave Tom Byron an interview. Lisa doesn't perform very often and last I heard, she was running a successful talent agency for porn gals, providing a demanding Den Mother attitude of her own even though she has no kids biologically. Tom sang her praises and the interesting anecdotes aside, I wanted to see this smoking hot babe go at it (even if she wasn't working with Johnny Sins like she seemed to prefer). Tom serviced her first and given her seductive look, I could see why he left her in charge. He helped her with her clothing and gave some serious head, spending ample time on her full breasts as she purred in delight. She then blew him in a passionate manner, using her hand to gland combat style as she slobbed the head of his knob actively. I was sure she wouldn't lick his ass (I was right) but she was immediately active during the vaginal ride, her over the top moaning a bit on the heavy side but Lisa still looking great as a result. They boned vaginally in several positions and it was clear that she was still suited for porn, the pair of them getting all sweaty as they moved to the titty fuck that drained him dry and left her face as coated as her chest. Nice!
Summary: Seasoned Players 4 by director Tom Byron for Tom Byron Pictures was designed specifically for showcasing older women possessing curvy figures with a concentration on currently available superstars. As such, the movie succeeded across the board with a lot of strokability, replay value, and proved that these gals were better than ever so I rated it as Highly Recommended. While that might seem a bit high to some of you, remember that this is a niche "event" fuck flick and almost made to cater to fans alone but anyone that can appreciate such ladies will find it really well made. In short, Seasoned Players 4 was one of the best of the year in terms of scoring the high profile MILF types you just don't see much, all the ladies contributing some value in terms of chemistry and passion.
