Poolside Pussy (Blu-ray)

Vouyer Media

Genre: Gonzo

Director: Van Styles

Cast: Kristina Rose, Anthony Rosano, London Keys, Jerry, Bridgett B., Marco Banderas, Katie Cummings, Sascha, Abbey Brooks; Asa Akira and Van Styles in the bonus scene

Length: 153:54 minutes

Date of Production: 10/16/2008

Extras: The best extra for most of you will be the bonus POV blowjob scene between Asa Akira and director Van Styles that lasted 18:10 minutes where she aggressively slobs his knob. Asa is an accomplished oralist and the scene had her displaying a lot of enthusiasm so it will merit extra consideration by her fans even if the enhanced resolution and detail clearly show her facial blemishes more than I think she would have liked. I also liked the Behind the Scenes footage labeled as "Cutting Room Floor" given how much material it included (56:45 minutes!) just as some of you will appreciate the photogallery and trailers.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Poolside Pussy (Blu-ray) was presented in a pleasing anamorphic widescreen color with an aspect ratio of about 1.78:1 as shot by director Van Styles for Vouyer Media using the VC-1 codec one would expect of the production with a 1080i resolution. The lighting was solid and that minimized the grain, video noise, and shadows in most cases; all factors in the appearance of the technical values used to enhance the action. The abundance of close up shots was a bit problematic for me at times but thankfully, a variety of other shots was also employed to balance things out. The composition of the shots proved that industry veteran Van has come a long way since his initial releases elsewhere, reminding me of his heated works for Vouyer and Video Team taken up a notch, his production skills honed at numerous companies he has worked at in recent years. There were still some minor rough edges in evidence but I can see improvement in these recent works and I look forward to seeing how his productions fare as he directs for numerous companies. The video bitrate varied a lot too but generally wasn't as high as I expected as it clocked in routinely at under 10 Mbps, reaching as high as 17.3 Mbps when I checked it out (so while there was no aliasing, compression artifacts, or macro-blocking noticed, it wasn't as great an upgrade). To sum it up; the movie looked better than any of the company's recent standard definition releases, the visual upgrade decent but not as great as it should have been. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) but this is what the SD version provides so the rating reflects it.

Body of Review: Van Styles has been directing a long time now, often devoting significant portions of his career to capturing ethnic outings before he took up with Vouyer Media. As a result, not as many people outside of the industry know much about him or how his technical expertise can enhance a production, but that has started to change in recent times. His latest movie making it my way is Poolside Pussy (Blu-ray), a collection of attractive ladies teasing and screwing in skimpy bikinis with a wealth of light used to make them look crystal clear. With hotties like Kristina Rose, Katie Cummings, and Abbey Brooks, I was sure the flick would be strokable but would he live up to the established reputation of Vince and company? Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Kristina Rose, a lovely young brunette, was up first wearing a colorful (a dark pink & black) bikini as she teased outside on a sunny day by the pool. Anthony Rosano was stalking her from inside when the director encouraged him to make his move, the moper getting to oil her body up but giving her a few licks along the way. Kristina slobbed his knob to reciprocate, jerking him off along the way, some semi-POV footage included to make it even better. The two started bumping uglies at that point, the minor lens glare rarely a big issue even as Van shot upwards towards their pounding genitalia, the standing vaginal penetration not allowing Kristina to be very active (even if she was loud). They then moved inside to continue on the couch, the combination of oral and vaginal sex including a 69 but more importantly, Kristina getting much more active. The ending wad of genetic juice was stroked out by Anthony onto her beautiful ass crack, Kristina smiling at the effect she had on the mope (even giving him some post coital sucking).

Scene Two: London Keys, a fleshy Asian chick in a brightly patterned bikini (skull patterned at that), was up next as she followed the formula with Jerry. She teased under the waterfall of the pool and the footage provided a lot of her in slow motion to music, the gal not really doing a whole lot to interest me out there. She went inside and showed off her natural (and pierced) boobs to Van and soon found Jerry taking off her bikini as they kissed. He spent ample time on her breasts and while there was no personal chemistry between them (a running theme in the show), they went through all the motions well enough. The blowjob was decent and she was a (mostly) passive vaginal fuck but those of you that enjoy loud, fake porn screams will adore her more than I ever could. She was much better when riding his pecker on top of his body, always looking away from him but showing her baby fat off nice enough. They closed out their session with a titty fuck and facial, his population pudding hitting her eye, mouth, and chest. I'm sure it was fun for both of them actually having sex but neither of them conveyed any sense of enthusiasm from what I could see.

Scene Three: Bridgett B., a curvy blond with a devilish look to her, was up next as she went through the special effects laden tease session outdoors, Marco Banderas grinning from ear to ear as he watched her at play in her black bikini. Apparently, it was cold that day (her nipples showed it) and Marco handed her a towel as he helped dry her off, Van encouraging them before they went at each other like horny teenagers. Marco pawed her and she responded in kind, the pair kissing before she dropped to her knees to blow him with some degree of passion. She certainly liked cock and whether she was working it in her hand or mouth, she took great care to look into his eyes to see what was working best. I liked the change of attitude by the cast at this point, Bridgette pumping herself vaginally on his cock as though in a trance. The only real weakness of the scene for me was how loud she yelled (in a fake, pornish manner) as that struck me as kind of forced but she did some taste testing and position swapping that indicated she was the real deal. Marco boned her like he owned her before rubbing out his semen to her mouth, the gal not swallowing but licking his rod as she looked up to him in a very seductive manner. Nice!

Scene Four: Katie Cummings, a sexy bleach blond with a smoking hot body, was up next out by the pool wearing a patterned bikini, the slow motion tease a bit overdone by this point but still helping to showcase her figure even as the skulls on her suit struck me more of a warning than anything else. She also had pierced breasts (well, one of them at least), and Van gave her the once over before Sascha took charge of her pleasure for the day. She sucked cock like a seasoned veteran (after he ate her out) and as much as he liked her ass, he rammed his cock hard into her pussy when the timing was right. They screwed vaginally in multiple positions and she showed a lot of potential, some of it as yet untapped, a degree of playfulness observed that added to the fun. I liked the Cubano junk in her trunk a lot and fans may appreciate how well she took the ending creampie of sperm to lick up off his stomach. Yum!

Scene Five: Abbey Brooks, the curvy gal seen on the front cover, was up last and those who have watched her from the beginning of her career know how much leaner she is these days, still sporting a nice chest and ass but with a leaner stomach. She teased in the sun by the pool in her bikini, eyeing the camera like a predator before moving inside to work with Jerry. I like her breasts and figure a lot but in terms of portraying the kind of lady the movie is devoted to, she was still a bit large compared to the others. Still, towel boy Jerry dried her off and started kissing her, his erection buried in her mouth in no time. Though she used a hand assist too much, I liked how she licked him during the blowjob better than how he ate her out. The vaginal screwing was another case of passive pussy for the most part, Abbey trying to make up for it with loud screaming. Built for comfort over speed, she did ride better when on top of him but even then, the measured strokes weakened the effort compared to some of the more skilled performers in the cast. The ending came in the form of a titty fuck that milked his nuts dry, Jerry launching a big load to her face and neck. With some training, she could be a much bigger name in the industry but to date, she has fallen short of expectations somewhat.

Summary: Poolside Pussy (Blu-ray) by director Van Styles for Vouyer Media was a bit uneven compared to the efforts of Vince or Jack (or even Donnie) but there was enough stroke value, replayability, and levels of fuck for the poolside buck to merit a rating of Recommended. In short, Poolside Pussy (Blu-ray) might not have best utilized the high definition format with the 1080i resolution or the low bitrate but the details were quite clear and my limited knowledge of the original release tells me that those of you with money to burn might consider it over the SD release if you find a bargain.
