Length: 4 hours 26 minutes
Production Date: 06/29/2008
A photo gallery with still images of the girls and a "Pick Your Pleasure" scene jumper are the only extras that you'll find on this release. There are some trailers too, but that's not really a supplemental.
As is the case with most every compilation the quality of the audio and video varies greatly here from scene to scene. Some of these scenes are plagued by interlacing, some have grain, and others are soft. There are also an equal number which are clean, clear, and sharp so your mileage will definitely vary as you make your way through it. The sound is equally sporadic with some volume pitch, scratchy moments, and muddied recordings peppered in between clear audio and otherwise fine sound.
Body of Review:
Welcome back to another Fantasy All-Stars compilation. For the ninth installment of this series Digital Sin continues to pull some of the best scenes with some of their best girls. With the likes of Sasha Grey, Alexis Texas, Julia Bond, Krystal Steal, and Amy Ried you just know this one's going to be just as hot as the rest. If you're a fan of the series or are just looking for a solid compilation this is another fine volume that you simply can't go wrong with.
Kicking things off is a scene from Addicted 4 with Sasha Grey and Derrick Pierce. It starts out with Ashlynn Brooke narrating the story that sets this scene up and soon enough it transitions to Sasha dressed all classy like. She's wearing a sexy black dress, stockings, and diamonds which definitely sets up the high class naughtiness of this scene. Sasha gets the action going by masturbating with a dildo and from there Derrick wastes no time getting the fucking underway. The scene is pretty good with fine performances from both stars, but it's drastically short in the grand scheme of things. There is only time for a few positions before Derrick cums weakly near Sasha's mouth.
Julia Bond is a blonde in her scene from Ashlynn & Friends #2 with Michael Stefano. She goes through a nice stripping bit and teases us with some solo action before Michael gets to work on her pussy. Julia looked particularly good lying on a table as Michael pumped away, but the scene gets even better when the move to the living room and she gets on her knees for some doggy style. Every time I see this girl she has more and more tattoos and her look constantly gets dirtier. When she's on her side you get a full spread of the tats on her back though that's only part of the charm of this scene. The action is solid and both performers put on a good show right up until the end.

Naughty College Girls #18 lends a scene with Hannah Harper and Mario Rossi. It starts out as most of these scenes do with Hannah and Mario pretending to be a student and a tutor. Hannah is wearing glasses, but the look doesn't really flatter her. Thankfully they come off near the beginning and from then the two get busy with the sex. I don't know the history of this particular scene, but I must say that it feels rather amateurish with the way the camera is involved. There are some static camera angles and shoes of the action that don't do justice to the performers. The sex itself is decent, if not a little generic, but there are decent performances on both accounts.
Pick up Chicks offers up a scene with Mike Adriano getting busy with Alexis Texas. This scene wastes no time getting to the good stuff and right from the start before the credits even cut away Alexis already has Mike's cock in her mouth. After slobbing his knob for a few minutes she bends over the sofa and Mike enters her from behind. The action her is completely POV style and there are several moments that look fantastic. I particular enjoyed it when Alexis was on her back looking up glazy eyed at the camera while Mike humped away.
Chloe Jones and Michael Scorpio appear in a scene from Love Machine which starts out with a mystic looking into a crystal ball. From there it transitions to Chloe and Michael going through the motions of foreplay and getting to the good stuff. Car lovers will appreciate the fact that they sex it up on a classic car in a garage, but personally I enjoyed this scene for the sex itself which was quite good. The action is slow and steady with some great positions and camera angles taken to give a nice glimpse of Chloe's privates. I will say that while the sex was fine and Chloe looked amazing, she really didn't seem interested and displayed virtually no energy. It's a shame really, because this scene had so much more potential than just getting by on looks alone.
Another scene from the Naughty School Girls series appears here with Krystal Steal and Dillon Day from the nineteenth volume. Krystal is always great in front of the camera, but as I mentioned earlier there was just something about the way this particular series was filmed that takes away from the action. The sex is very dry due to the distant camera and traditional poses and neither Krystal nor Dillon seems to get into it. Once again this one feels like wasted potential and there are much better Krystal scenes out there that would have felt right at home on this release of Fantasy All-Stars.
The second disc starts out with a scene from The Ties that Bind. This one features Hillary Scott, Alektra Blue, and Lee Stone in a scene that offers up a lot of tied up goodness. At the beginning Hillary is all tied up and Alektra is working her pussy over with a vibrator. Our blonde starlet writhes and moans with pleasure, but before we see an all-out lesbian affair the girls move over to a contraption equipped with dildos and that's when Lee walks in. Alektra has virtually nothing to do with this scene one Lee appears and she seems to just hang out off camera watching everything. With that being said Hillary and Lee put on a great show and there's some high spirited sex with a lot of energy here.
The freckled Faye Valentine hits the sheets with Johnny Sins in a scene from Fuck for Dollars #5. The sex begins almost immediately with very little foreplay, which is probably a good thing really. Faye and Johnny have a nice connection and the action here has some very good moments. Towards the beginning Faye doesn't really seem to be having a good time, but after a while she warms up to Johnny and the scene gets much better because of it. From that point on right up to the end when Johnny drops his load on her tummy the sex is pretty fun to watch.
POV Fantasy Volume 6 brings a scene with Amy Ried and Brother Love. This one has an Egyptian flare with a pharaoh's chamber being the shooting location which I'm sure cost a pretty penny. The sex here is decent, but not great unfortunately. Amy works Brother's cock nicely and she plays up the POV style better than most performers, but there aren't any outstanding moments to be found here. Aside from Amy's great looks and costume, the contrast is poor here and the scene has a purplish hue that is distracting. The bad bits unfortunately outweigh the good ones here.
Keeping the point of view fantasy theme going is My Fantasy Girls POV #2 with Cassandra Calogera and Mike Adriano. Cassandra gets that fantasy thing right with a sexy French maid outfit that accentuates her best features. The POV part of this scene is lost at times as the camera catches glimpses of Mike's head, but those bits only happen at a few times. The rest of this scene is awesome with some solid performances by both stars and it's safe to say that Cassandra really takes the cake here.
Brianna Love and James Deen get together for a scene from What an Ass #5. The scene starts out with Brianna doing a nice little tease and just when you think you could watch her going solo all day James walks in. The sex here is quite good with Brianna and James hitting all of the standard positions and the camera capitalizing on some dynamic angles. Many worthy moments appear here as Brianna sexily gazes at James with her leg almost to her head as her pussy is pounded. Right up to the end this scene offered a great connection between the two and it was probably one of the better scenes on this installment of Fantasy All-Stars.
The send-off for Fantasy All-Stars #9 comes from a scene featuring Jewel De'Nyle and Erik Everhard from Intimate Expressions. This one struck me based on its style alone. You know those cheesy pornos you could catch on cable TV about a decade ago? We're talking tacky music playing over the scene, a soft filter used on the camera, and sex full of traditional positions. This scene has all three of those in spades and while Jewel and Erik put on a great show I couldn't help but laugh at parts of it. It has been a long time since I've seen scene such as this and it reminds me of how far the industry has come since.
While Fantasy All-Stars #9 does feature some great performances and some of the top girls in the business, I can't help but express disappointment. After previous installments of the series I was expecting more. This ninth volume does pick some good scenes and due to those I'd consider it recommended, but ultimately this installment just isn't anywhere near as good as what has come before it. Add it to your collection if you're a fan of the franchise, but don't expect it to be a major "go to" when you're in the mood for some porn.
