Audio/Video Quality: Dreamgirlz Volume 2 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Mike Quasar for Third Degree using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases (using 480i resolution). The lighting was modest here, showing a modicum of care and as solid as Mike's best works of late, with enough variation to add some texture in a few of the five scenes. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I got the impression that Mike was so into the women that the technical matters were overlooked at times. There was some edge enhancement observed but few people seem to care about that outside of technophile snobs, especially when it is as lightly applied as it was here. It was not perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual. The video bitrate tended to hover around the 5.4 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, each of them used to softer lighting in recent scenes but not needing it for the purposes of this release. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 192 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot. There was no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers.
Body of Review: Mike Quasar is best known for making the high end titles at Third Degree, largely confining his efforts to parent company Zero Tolerance most of the time. Mike's attention to detail and technical expertise help make him the lead director at the company, something akin to how Robby D. is involved with all productions at Digital Playground. In his role at the company, Mike oversees all the bigger projects and the latest is Dreamgirlz Volume 2, the sequel to Dreamgirls 1 that garnered much acclaim awhile back. The movie is a collection of five vignettes, using the top notch talent you simply don't see all that often in a single cast, including such hotties as Alexis Texas, Julia Ann, Lisa Ann, Francesca Le, Sasha Grey and others the fans adore. As Mike might say, each scene began with some fast forward fodder but quickly started giving up the goods for viewers to appreciate. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Alexis Texas, the curvy blond bombshell seen on the far right of the DVD cover, was up first as she took stripping lessons from sexy legend Julia Ann, the blond in the back of the cover's group shot. Alexis was hilarious in the role and Julia a natural, Mark Wood helping the process. The lap dance lessons led to the gals warming him up with their hands and mouths, both ladies double teaming the lucky pervert as they began slobbing his knob in unison. Alexis then removed her metallic blue shorts to jump on his pecker for a vaginal ride, pounding herself on him as Julia encouraged them before some PTM. Julia got some oral loving by both of her partners here too, sitting on his face and spreading her legs for Alexis to munch as she was being tapped from behind. Mark ate Julia's ass too but the free for all aspect of the scene was pretty smoking hot, admittedly in part because I'm a fan of these two gals. The scene closed up when Mark jerked out a load of genetic juice to Julia's mouth, the veteran performer sharing it with Alexis. Yum!
Scene Two: Alektra Blue, the pretty brunette seen on the far left hand side of the cover, was up next as she stumbled upon sleeping Mick Blue and his uncredited, beer swilling friend, when she woke up. Apparently, she got very drunk and did all sorts of tricks with Mick, revising them because she thought he was cute after kicking his friend out the door. They made out and gave each other some head, not showing as much chemistry as the last trio but still making it a nice bit of action all the same. She initially gave him an aggressive hummer before climbing on for the equally active vaginal ride, some taste testing and slapping punctuating their bout of boning (including her finger rubbing her asshole). That continued until she milked his balls orally as he jerked off to her face for her to swallow.
Scene Three: Sasha Grey, the orally inclined brunette seen on the lower left front, was up next as she engaged in a therapy session warning her to stay away from men. Needless to say, the first guy she stumbles across is loser James Deen ("Hal") and she offers him some macaroni & cheese, the dive impressing the hobo before she dragged him over to the couch to have sex ("don't worry, you won't consider it work"). James was rough with her and she liked it, Sasha finding the appeal of a complete loser somehow fulfilling her psychological needs more than therapy. He ate her out and she sat on his cock, giving him some oral between positions, jerking him off to her face at the end of the scene. They had chemistry and displayed enthusiasm so it was a good scene for me.
Scene Four: Tori Black, the hotty seen on the lower center of the group shot on the cover, was up next playing the entertainment at a bachelor party of Alex Gonz, his group of uncredited friends howling at him to have some fun with the lean babe. She gave him a lap dance and he felt her up handily, the blowjob in front of everyone causing them to go to the bedroom where she provided him with a full service ride. They kissed and continued with the blowjob, Alex sticking his finger in her ass when she rode his cock vaginally. Tori's dirty talk was appreciated and while she was not a very active ride in most positions, she looked great on the bed without her bikini getting in the way. They continued banging with light oral in several positions before he rubbed out a wad of population pudding for her to take to her face.
Scene Five: Lisa Ann, the hotty brunette seen on the back row, right of center portion of the cover, was up next with Francesca Le, the other brunette in the background there, and Mick Blue as her husband. Mick wanted to engage in a three way so the ladies agreed to do each other, showing tremendous chemistry together as they made out on the couch. Fans of 18 year old performers might want to take a look at this one to see just why experience means so much to guys like me, the sexy lesbian act really going crazy before they decided to let him join in. At that point, there was less rug munching and kissing since Francesca wanted to suck him off, Lisa jumping his pecker too. Mick boned them like he owned them too, the oral continuing as each gal was given a heaping helping of his cock inside their pussy or mouths. The ladies were as active as ever and the replay value was quite high, approaching the strokability levels as far as this fan was concerned. The ending facial lined both ladies up to share in his wealth of spew, kissing as they shared it (and ending with a touch of humor). Yeah!
Summary: Dreamgirlz Volume 2 by director Mike Quasar for Third Degree was a lot of fun and had sufficient replay value to merit a rating of Recommended or better due to the casting, the replay value, the strokability, and the chemistry produced from the better scenes. While not all of the gals were at their very best, they showed why they are considered some of the best fucks in porn at this writing, each catering to a specific type of fan. In short, Dreamgirlz Volume 2, like Dreamgirls 1 before it, was a solid outing worth checking out if you get the chance, some of the performances award worthy as far as I am concerned. Good work Mike!
