Audio/Video Quality: All About Me 2 was presented in an anamorphic widescreen color with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio as shot by director Ray Bones for Diabolic Digital as offered in 480 resolution using the MPEG-2 codec of standard definition. There were 18 scenes here but the ladies remained largely static in their location aside from some minor movement during the tease portions of some scenes so this was an easy one to shoot from the looks of it. There was some grain and the compression artifacts were minimal but the video bitrate was higher than I expected with much of the footage hovering around the 5.5 Mbps area. The lighting varied substantially though and for what it's worth, the camera was far too often handled with a strong leaning towards close ups. None of the scenes looked bad but some of them did look better than others so I hope to compare more of Ray's works to see how he fares in more difficult to shoot titles but I can't fault him much for what I saw here. The audio was presented in a 1.0 monaural at 192 Kbps and with a 48 kHz sampling rate without the second track advertised on the back cover so the music was not a factor here. The vocals were minimal in most cases and the background noises rarely noticed; the automatic gain such that it did bug me at times. On another technical note, there seemed to be an issue with the layer change this time, Julia Ann's scene marking the last one on layer one, my PS3 hesitating substantially before playing it and my computer player locking up entirely twice (needing a restart) so beware.
Body of Review: Ray Bones is the latest director for Diabolic Digital and I got a look at his second tribute to women in the form of All About Me 2. The movie was a series of 15 female solo masturbation scenes with some of the biggest names in porn mixed in with some ladies you might not have heard much about. A number of companies have offered similar titles in the past year so my goal is to provide a quick head's up as to what made this one different from the others you might have seen. The ladies in order of appearance were Rebeca Linares, Tory Lane, Shyla Stylez, Alexis Texas, Cassandra Cologera, Caroline Reese, Angelina Ash, Sunny Lane, Julia Ann, Melissa Lauren, Carmen McCarthy, Jessica Steele, Katia, Ann Marie Rios, and Devi Emmerson; some of the ladies providing outstanding performances. There was no population pudding flying around and there was far too little tease in some of them but the simple approach seemed to work more often than not here. There were mostly scenes with toys, a few other scenes lacking toys, and a variety of household settings employed here with a few ladies looking slightly rough.
I could break down each scene for you by clothing (almost always skimpy lingerie at most), which room of the house, who used toys, or some other arbitrary but let's face it, most of you know that the ladies are going to tease, diddle themselves (with or without toys), and making various moaning noises with some dirty talk. A friend suggested I not spend thousands of words detailing all of that and instead simply provide a series of pictures of the ladies instead. The appeal of the idea worked for me and will likely make most of you happy as well so considering that the ladies, in order, were as follows: Rebeca Linares, Tory Lane, Shyla Stylez, Alexis Texas, Cassandra Cologera, Caroline Reese, Angelina Ash, Sunny Lane, Julia Ann, Melissa Lauren, Carmen McCarthy, Jessica Steele, Katia, Ann Marie Rios, and Devi Emmerson, I hope you appreciate that they were all present to help inspire you to personal glory in your own solo efforts.
Summary: All About Me 2 by director Ray Bones for Diabolic Digital did not have all the fancy trimmings some of the competition has had, nor was there a lot of music or special effects, in fact, there were virtually no extras to speak of either but I lost all track of time watching this one. The technical matters needed some additional polishing up and a few of the ladies were in great need of performance lessons but I had to give the nod to Ray here and rate this one as Recommended for all it offered up. In short, All About Me 2 had some sweet scenes of Rebeca Linares, Tory Lane, Shyla Stylez, Alexis Texas, Cassandra Cologera, Caroline Reese, Angelina Ash, Sunny Lane, Julia Ann, Melissa Lauren, Carmen McCarthy, Jessica Steele, Katia, Ann Marie Rios, and Devi Emmerson that were likely shot as sidelines to full scenes for the company over a period of time; none of them completely disposable in my opinion but be wary of the mastering issue if you have outdated equipment.
