Audio/Video Quality: Massive Facials was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as shot by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. Mason has made or assisted on a number of titles over the years, the technical matters taking back seat (pun intended) to the raw energy of the sex, so it was nice to see her improving her game in the visuals. I saw no compression artifacts (it was largely falling around the mid 4 Mbps video bitrate; on the low end but probably needed given the amount of material on the DVD) and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 192 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, plenty of room considering how little took place on it but leaving room for future efforts too.
Body of Review: Sam No/Mason is my second favorite director these days at Elegant Angel, first if you consider that she has tits. Unlike the stereotypical female director that is neither on the sets of the movies they direct nor truly in charge of the final product released, Mason is unabashedly interested in exploring her kinkier side via her work. While some of her peers rail about porn being a 'man's club" that is only interested in making filthy movies for knuckle draggers, Mason outdoes almost all of them in terms of the nasty smut she so totally embraces, this fact having forced her out of several jobs in the past. Now comfortably back home at Elegant, she tries her best to offer a well rounded selection of titles for fans, the latest coming to me being Massive Facials. This time, Mason got some of the best hardcore hotties to participate in blowbangs, the result being that all of them were drenched in genetic juice from the low end mopes that have proven to be good for one thing only, rubbing out wads of semen in the form of facials. There was no penetrative sex here and that weakened it for me but there was a degree of truth in advertising so I took a lengthy look to see if it lived up to the flood of similar titles up for grabs these days. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jenna Haze, the hot little strumpet featured on the front cover of the DVD case, was up first and given her sorted past with man goo, she seemed to be a perfect opener for what was to come. Teasing the camera in her fishnet stockings and black lingerie, Jenna transformed the living room to be crowned as a facial queen thanks to the various mopes let loose on her that day. The tease footage was okay but lacked the inspiration I was hoping for, some solo action readying her for the blowjobs she was to give. I was surprised that she was given some head and also managed to use her feet to jerk one of them off, the loads of creamy spew coating her face by the end of the scene.
Scene Two: Rebeca Linares, the sweet Latina from Spain with the awesome accent and lean body, was up next as she followed the formulaic approach to leave her workout clothes aside and slip into a silver bikini and white fetish boots, a small chain signifying her as a "bitch" dangling from her waist. I prefer thicker gals but Rebeca has always been so nice to me in person that regardless of the gossip mills, I find her appealing on several levels. She teased and Mason interviewed her, the crowd of mopes much larger than in the last scene. Like all such blowbangs, Rebeca worked more than one dick at a time too, her hand to gland combat style satisfying a few while her mouth handled another. There was some minimal titty fucking her too and at least one of the losers seemed about to start plowing her pussy or ass (with her consent) but this scene also seemed substantially shorter than the first to my regret, leaving her slimed all over her face using her own brand of population pudding brand facial cream.
Scene Three: Courtney James, a skinny white gal in a white top and red plaid skirt, seemed to want to relive her high school years as she made herself up in the bathroom, the interview giving Mason details about her short career (under a year at the time of the filming). Her oral skills were not as refined as the previous two and she seemed happiest with a single dick in her mouth as she rubbed her crotch to a juicy state. I wasn't keen on the camera work for most of the scene either since the oral was supposed to be the focal point of the action but played second fiddle to her masturbation. She only handled a smaller number of guys too, her bruised legs quivering as she outdid herself but simply did not live up to the promise of the headliners making up the rest of the cast. The scene ended with her looking like a glazed donut too but nothing like the moper mess left in the scenes using more men.
Scene Four: Bobbi Starr, a brunette that looks okay but proved that looks were far from her greatest asset when I started paying closer attention to her awhile back. Bobbi is currently one of the industry's extreme queens, doing anything with a decent payday attached to it but having fun in the process. After her interview, she started with a trio of losers by sucking one while jerking off the other two. Her ferocity and aggressive style was a wonder to behold, some brothers joining in to give her a second round of three men to play with, the crowd growing as she proved to be more than a match for any of them. The men continued to pour in when nearly a dozen had been serviced by her, the streamers flying all about as she continued to ply her trade so successfully. They throat fucked her silly and covered her face in population pudding, the genetic juice finding every nook and cranny to settle in as the scene finished up. Whoa!
Scene Five: Dakoda Brookes, a very cute youth wearing a pink bikini and smoking a cigarette out by the pool, was up next as she showed off her all natural body to Mason. I wish she had been given more time to tease rather than waste the opportunity during the interview, the 19 year old still on the path of discovery considering she started having sex at 18 (and only with one guy). Dakoda is a gal with a tremendous amount of potential if she plays her cards right, this time following the formula with some tease (the colors too saturated this time) and ending the interview to suck on a handful of cocks (I counted five). There wasn't a lot of variation here with Dakoda trying to blow two guys at once being as far as she could go, some head given to her before the men unleashed their seed on her face.
Scene Six: Sasha Grey, one of the most popular oral queens of the industry at this writing, was up last as she walked down the street during the interview, talking about the scene to come with her doing ten guys orally. Her striped shorts looked good on her cute ass, Mason keeping up her end of the conversation on the cloudy day even after that made it to the "freezing cold warehouse" where Sasha climbed up to the second story platform to begin her arduous task. Sasha sucking off ten guys is nothing new and some of them men barely lasted any time at all once she started inhaling their meat, the mixed crowd of lean, heavy, white, black, and all overly used mopes wanting to get in on some of the fun. Sasha took care of them in waves as the others had done, using her hands and mouth in unison to keep as many of the mopes hard while others beat their own meat. She was a mess when it was all over though, covered in spew and her make up all over the place.
Summary: Massive Facials by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel was not the most inspired blowbang release I've seen this year, not even close in fact, but it was fairly close to the action advertised on the cover (I hold back because of the missing scene promised). Each of the six ladies has done better in more complete scenes and the showcase talent have had more enthusiasm elsewhere so I rated this as a Rent It. There was stroke potential here but it lacked the kind of replayability I need to elevate a score so while your mileage may vary, this was a pleasant diversion while I wait for one of Mason's really groundbreaking releases instead. In short, Massive Facials was a decent little series of blowjobs but nothing I haven't seen before with more gusto and passion, the gals sometimes held too close to their comfort zones unlike Mason's other works.
