Audio/Video Quality: Glamour Girls was presented in an 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec with 480i resolution. The camera work was solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. There was an emphasis on close ups but the editing by Robert Laplanc was pretty solid in most cases, balancing out the various angles and timing nicely enough. Currently, Nutsack is the king of well lit gonzo, other directors opting for arty effects or texture instead of a crisp picture all too often though there were a couple of spots that he seemed to try slightly new things, most of them working nicely and the others still unable to diminish the heat of the respective scenes. I saw few compression artifacts (it was largely falling around the mid 3.3 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 their 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. There were a few musical interludes this time you might enjoy, greater attention paid to this aspect of the movie as a result.
Body of Review: The other day, a friend of mine pointed out that what he finds unappealing about most modern porn is the trend towards sexual athleticism over beauty and chemistry. I couldn't disagree with him given how many box covers are plastered with phrases like "1st anal", "100% anal", and a myriad of other comments that focus on pushing societal and physical limits to the extreme over something that sex can be for those of us lucky enough to be in steady relationships. The romantic in me pointed out a half dozen titles he might find to his (and his wife's) liking but the point was a truism I could not deny. Coming to the rescue this week though was director William H. Nutsack and Elegant Angel with their Glamour Girls DVD, a series of five scenes using ladies all dolled up and made to look especially hot in a classy way, reviving the glamorous look of days gone by without sacrificing the technical values to arty filters or the strength of the sex scenes to the kind of women that look good but act stuck up. The company website advertised the movie like this: "AVN Performer Of The Year 2009, Jenna Haze, stars in Glamour Girls, alongside Amy Ried, Jenaveve Jolie, Sarah Vandella, and Jenna Presley, directed by the award winning, William H, and shot in 1080p HD. Featuring five intense and passionate hardcore sex scenes, the movie also includes extended tease sequences for each girl in an epic location, as well as interviews, and photo shoot footage." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jenaveve Jolie, a heavily tattooed Latina given the glam treatment, was up first as she gave a short interview and longer tease session, looking like she has been keeping in shape but still playful. The use of light and shadows in the empty warehouse combined with her sultry moves and some interesting music made this a lot of fun to appreciate. Her legs had great tone to them and her ass was as sweet looking as ever, the lighting turned back up when she was paired with studly Marco Banderas for the action. The rest of the scene showed the two wrapped up in carnal activity, some active vaginal screwing mixed with a generous helping of oral loving both up front and between the positions in the form of PTM. The couple shared some chemistry that helped elevate their work a bit over their usual action, Jenaveve taking the wad of genetic juice to her mouth but continuing to slob his knob like a lover devoted to her man. Yum!
Scene Two: Amy Ried, a gal with a "girl next door" face but a smoking hot body, was up next and the oiling portion of the tease alone was most strokable. I wished the tease was longer but Mick Blue seemed to be happy to get her as early as he did, following the formula as she did though with less chemistry than the previous scene had. Amy did not do any anal this time and it was a mechanical bout of boning interspersed with the blowjob and cunnilingus one expects from such a pairing but overall it struck me as having all the right elements shot correctly but simply lacking a little of the enthusiasm she employs when working with one of her short list of favorite male performers. It took place in the warehouse and was strokable, it just had less replay value and the facial was moderate as the population pudding graced her snout.
Scene Three: Jenna Haze, the cutie featured on the front cover, is currently one of the most sought after performers in porn due to her wanton ways that include a "no holes barred" approach to porn. Her stripper moves worked well for her in the warehouse dance sequence and her all natural body certainly did not hurt matters any, the minimalist approach taken working at least as well for her as any of the others (perhaps better). She was soon wrapping her lips around the cock of aging lothario Randy Spears, his new goatee somehow suitable as the couple made out on the black leather couch. She toyed with him and he kept an eye on her, the sugar daddy motif clearly in my mind as she slobbed his knob actively. Jenna was passive during the vaginal plowing but always vocal, the anal showing her much more at home with the pecker penetrating her body. There was taste testing and Jenna almost made it believable in how she was grinding her hips and such, the ending showing her to swallow the load of spew.
Scene Four: Sarah Vandella, a curvy blond that Paul Thomas suggested was a "firecracker" on a recent reality TV show for Showtime, was up next as she followed the formula with an interview and tease dance. Whatever faults she had, they were not on display during the tease, her large camel toe lips suitable for masturbating and her joyous way of expressing herself very sexy indeed. Her partner for the day was moper James Deen and he plied her with his usual abuse act, choking her and trying to dominate the young lady beyond his ability to carry out the threat (he's a tiny guy). He smacked her ass and she inhaled his dick orally, the back and forth oral and vaginal sex including some mutual masturbation and anal play, though not with his penis. I can see why so many fans adore her and she really did bring a spark to the scene, I just wish she could have had a better partner to ignite the spark into something more. The scene ended up with a facial, her throating technique as good as ever.
Scene Five: Jenna Presley, a very pretty young lady with awesome eyes, was up last and her implants looked overdone but better than expected. She was interviewed and did the tease dance well enough, coming across as down to earth given the way she spoke of domestic bliss during the interview. She took time off and seemed to be ready to rumble once again, drawing the lucky card by working with studly Manuel Ferrara. She was another that looked especially sexy when coated with oil, Manuel unable to resist her charms as he aggressively tackled her with some oral and kisses, boning her before she engulfed his cock to taste herself dripping off of him. They vaginally fucked in several positions and she was an active rider, some minimal choking included but not needed from the look of things. There was a little titty fucking too but I could have used more, the ending all too soon with a mouth pop serving up a healthy load of his seed for her to enjoy.
Bonus Scene: Performers of the Year 2009: Alexis Texas, the blond with the bodacious ass on the far right side of the cover, was up first in a scene with studly Mick Blue. Alexis began by dancing around to a thumping beat, teasing the camera as though it were some of her devoted fans, looking like she had lost a few pounds in all the right places (leaving her sweet ass alone). The booty dropping and shaking was particularly hot in the warehouse, her skimpy outfit amounting to a tiny bit of material destined to never cover half of what it should. Once the tease was over, Mick had his head crammed between her ass cheeks, going down on her as she shook her moneymaker. They kissed and he felt her up, the music having died off (thankfully!) and Alexis aggressively inhaling his meat pipe using her hand and mouth. Alexis has not typically been a sexual aggressor so this scene helped secure her role in upcoming contests, Mick getting some last minute tasting in before he started pounding her pussy. The vaginal riding and taste testing continued in numerous positions until Mick rubbed out a wad of genetic juice to her face, covering her lower mouth before the camera faded away. Whew!
Summary: Glamour Girls by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was a solid selection of porn ladies well suited to getting the glamour treatment and using it to enhance their physical appeal. The sexual antics were relatively tame by company standards but it largely worked for me and showed enough fuck for the buck, replay value, and strokability to merit a rating of Recommended. In short, Glamour Girls was a blending of beauty and sexual prowess that should appeal to a wider audience than usual, no shortage of sexual heat displayed and in such a way that I am sure it will be a fan favorite if you like any of the ladies so check it out.
