Audio/Video Quality: Gabriella Fox: Sexy Hot was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Celeste for Digital Playground in the usual MPEG-2 codec reserved for standard definition releases. The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release look really sharp; losing the artistic style that doesn't always work so well for me. In fact, the technical matters showed Robby's influence serving nicely to ground the scenes with less of the arty farty filters and effects that the director sometimes uses. The lighting was generally solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget; favoring a clear focus in some cases that I was convinced worked very well. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. Kurt Tortcher was the editor and together with some of the post production effects added in, added the kind of visual texture that made the release stand out from some of Celeste's other works (in a good way at that though). The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts; with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the mid 5 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related showcase efforts. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 448 Kbps bitrate; over twice that of most porn made these days, 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. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were always clearly heard here.
Body of Review: Digital Playground is one of the most successful companies in the adult entertainment industry but unlike many of their peers, they have only three directors, Joone, Robby, and Celeste. Each has their own niche and following of fans, Celeste catering more to the female fantasy than anything else. Of late, her track record has been pretty solid for delivering the goods to both sexes, a quick look at her movie ratings showing that even a jaded old porn hound like me can appreciate her works if the casting is right, so I was curious to see what her upcoming title, Gabriella Fox: Sexy Hot, would be like as the first sequel released to the appreciated Jesse Jane: Sexy Hot. Coming out next month, the show provided five scenes full of tease and heated sexual action, showcasing new contract gal Gabriella Fox better than her previous effort for the company. One look at her and you'll know why she was signed up, the smoldering eyes, sweetly curved figure, and the potential to really rock the world of her fans. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Carmella Santiago, a fresh Latina with a lean body but sexy demeanor, was up first as she found herself handcuffed to a pillar in the home of studly muscleman Tommy Gunn. He brandished a riding crop to swat her ass with, massaging the spots he hit to get her excited at the prospect of working even more intimately with the man. The tease footage showed him slowly escalating the dynamic, kissing her full lips and freeing her in order to allow her to reciprocate on the nearby couch. Her outfit looked like something out of a 1980's exercise video, hugging her form nicely as she cooed at his touch. Carmella then slowly pulled down his pants to aggressively suck him off, concentrating on the head but using her hand to generate even more friction. I liked that she was into the fun too, keeping eye contact with Tommy instead of continually looking at the camera as seems to be standard in gonzo these days. This led to a series of vaginal positions showing her fresh young (and hairy) pussy was ill equipped to take his entire girth inside of her so she kicked back and enjoyed him prodding her biscuit hardcore style, ending with a wad of population pudding to her face.
Scene Two: Gabriella Fox, the lean and attractive hotty featured on the front cover, was up next as she served epic meat puppet Erik Everhard in the living room. One glance of her sweet little ass covered in neon pink shorts was enough for Erik to want her more intimately, placing her over his lap after a minor lap dance to spank her with a hairbrush. He pulled off her shorts to savor the taste of her taint too, Gabriella responding as expected with a huge smile on her face as he dug in. After his extensive oral on her, she grabbed his package and started blowing him with the vigor of youth, spending as much time jerking him off as slobbing his knob until it was time for them to bump uglies. Erik is a known powerhouse of pounding so I didn't expect Gabriella to be able to keep up with him very much but she did manage to show some of her genetic potential by riding him fairly actively, a better scene of hers I had never seen. Erik spanked her as she bounced on his rod too, slowing down after the standing fuck was finished. Her moans made the scene shine for me though and that perfect little shaven biscuit was all red and puffy by the end of the scene as a result of their screwing. I only didn't like the way she looked too relaxed at the end, Erik expressing my sentiments when he rubbed out the load to her face.
Scene Three: Shawna Lenee, a cute blond with a lot more curves these days, was up next wearing a white mesh outfit on top of a skimpy blue bikini outfit. I prefer my gals to be a bit thicker but she showed a lot of heat as she was in charge of muscular Tommy Gunn in bed, the man all encased in plastic wrap for her to do with as she pleased. The teasing nature of her lap dance elevated the appeal of the scene too, Shawna gyrating on his cock so encased that he could feel it but do nothing about his growing state of mind (and body). Shawna then rubbed her titties on him and continued to torment him, the pleasurable ecstasy leading to her freeing his meat to active suck him off. She then sat on his face to allow him to reciprocate, the 69 giving both of them something to do before she started actively riding his cock vaginally. The over the top moans and yelling were a bit much but she looked great here all the same (with the film look added in during post production making it look kind of interesting too). This being the best ride of the day, it ended when he pulled out to drop his semen on her crotch, the satiated gal smiling in glory for the fine work she had done. Whew!
Scene Four: Gabriella Fox, this time teasing Johnny Sins in the living room with her best cheerleader outfit on, had him show her how to swing a plastic baseball bat as she got frisky with him. They kissed and pawed each other, leading to each giving the other some head. Gabriella seemed more into the act this time and Johnny spent plenty of time licking her in return, the vaginal sex on the couch made it look like she was already tapped that day given how red and swollen her labia were. She rocked back on his cock in doggy and proved to like the tip in the cowgirl variations, giving hope to men like me that she wasn't a size queen (refusing to go deeper than a few inches on the dick she was riding). The scene closed out when he bust a huge nut all over her torso, draining his balls quite dry for that day.
Scene Five: Jandi Lin, an exotic newcomer with a huge tattoo and winning smile, was up last as she showed Tommy Gunn just how appealing an Asian gal could be. She masturbated on the couch in her yellow and white striped top, no panties getting in the way as she convinced him to come over and join her little masturbation session. He was still on the phone when he walked over to help her massage her clitoris, Jandi asking him to fuck her in her ass making it clear why he expedited his trip. Her dirty talk didn't hurt either, Jandi's blowjob among the best here. He pounded her pussy as she called herself a whore, lots of PTM given but the best part being the various driven vaginal riding she did. There wasn't the expected anal but she didn't need to do any given the strength of her scene here. The ending showed him jerking off to her mouth and Jandi providing some post coital sucking, ending the movie on a high note.
Summary: Gabriella Fox: Sexy Hot by director Celeste for Digital Playground was another step in the evolution of contract cutie Gabriella Fox where she showed plenty of potential. By this time next year, she may well be a terrific lay and so skilled in sexual depravity that I'll be taking cold showers every time I see her flicks but in this case, the strength of the movie was largely attributable to the entire cast with the chemistry, replay value, and strokability meriting a rating of Recommended. In short, Gabriella Fox: Sexy Hot showed the lead as being sexy and hot, her "wow factor" still on the rise at this writing. The technical values were solid and the BTS had some of the self deprecating humor the crew is known for, Robby and Jamal skewered over all the others.
