Cast: Gianna Michaels, Mick Blue, Jasmine Black, David Perry, Janet, Bruno SX, Cassandra Calogera, Siena, Dominno -Isabela, Kamil Klein
Length: 154:40 minutes
Date of Production: 1/31/2009
Extras: The best extra was a 5:00 minute long bit of Behind the Scenes material, some additional sex, some photogallery material, etc. There was a photogallery, a pop shot compilation, a true double sided DVD cover with slipcase, and spam. The downside was that there was no "masturbations" section as promised on the back of the DVD case.

Audio/Video Quality: Fresh Jugs 8 was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director David Perry for Zero Tolerance using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases using 480 resolution. The lighting was modest here, showing some care but it was not as solid looking as some of David's best works of late, with enough variation to add some texture in a few of the six scenes. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I got the impression that David was so into the women that the technical matters were overlooked at times. It was not perfect but this did enhance the replay value for me as it showed more care than usual. The bitrate tended to hover around the 5.1 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it but the editing appeared to be a bit choppy at times, perhaps the movie was rushed a bit to release sooner (or on schedule). 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 opening tease done to music rather than include vocals. 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: David Perry has been something of an icon in porn over the years, the man best known as a performer in foreign releases before starting to direct at Zero Tolerance several years ago. His latest title shipped to me was the recently released Fresh Jugs 8, the movie clearly focused on large, natural breasts as the common theme. I was only truly interested in this title for Gianna's scene but some of the others looked pretty good too, albeit not in Gianna's league when it comes to popularity. The back cover advertised the movie like this: "If you like you "cans" to be "colossal" and your "women" to be "wet and wild" then Fresh Jugs is guaranteed to satisfy your hankering for humongous hooters! A bevy of beautiful babes get their "wiggly wonders" worshipped and their holes hammered in this titillating tale of tantalizing tatas. Fresh Jugs showcases the sexiest sets of sacks in XXX and this latest release, Fresh Jugs 8, offers even more mammoth mounds of mouthwatering mean than its predecessor!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Gianna Michaels, the fleshy cover gal that Xcritic named "best performer of the year" earlier this year, was up first and as part of a lineup of ladies advertised as having "100% all natural big boobs", she was a solid pick. Initially, she gyrated and teased in the living room to some generic music, her black lingerie slowly peeled off to reveal her bountiful assets. To say she was a natural at invoking a response from my cock is an understatement, her solo work really sweet no matter how weakened by the lack of her vocals it might have been. This led to her regaining her clothing and verbally teasing studly Mick Blue in POV fashion, her slutty attitude certainly working for the renowned woodsman. Mick entered the picture with a raging hard on that Gianna playfully sucked off, the gal making a lot of noise as she inhaled the pipe so thoroughly that it, along with her eye contact, would have been fine even without the titty fuck. Her aural encouragement helped too but she was a most active vaginal rider as well, more oral and titty fucking used to punctuate the rest of the action (he even ate her a little bit) before dropping a load of genetic juice on her chest. Whew!
Scene Two: Jasmine Black, a curvy brunette with overly horrid makeup, was up next wearing white and pick lingerie in the living room, her tiny skirt doing little to cover her shapely ass as her titties flailed around. I again hated the tease music but her body fit the notion of the advertisement discussed above, the slow motion only somewhat disliked. Her scene partner was the director himself, David Perry, and she went right to slobbing his knob on the couch when the time came for them to work together. Granted, she showed little emotion or chemistry as the mechanically worked him over but he fingered and fucked the active rider, the vaginal leading to anal and the requisite titty pop. Jasmine has a lot of potential but she just did not seem to care one way or the other about her work so it limited the replay value and strokability (much like the following ladies).
Scene Three: Janet, a gal with an admittedly plain face but a huge set of all natural tits, was up next as she teased in a scene looking like the color was partially removed at times. She went through the motions during the tease portion as the others did, shaking her chest more than anything else, the plain bedroom set about as fitting as any location could be. Her partner was aging lothario Bruno SX, the guy looking to be in his late 50's these days, not that much older than Janet but a fitting match all the same. He warmed her up and she blew him with a degree of enthusiasm, some titty fucking tossed in before her mostly passive vaginal ride. Bruno rubbed out his load of population pudding on her chest and she massaged it in but this was another generic foreign scene from what I could tell.
Scene Four: Cassandra Calogera, a thick brunette wearing a yellow bikini outside, was up next as she teased in the color-dehanced scene. Most of the time, her lack of dancing skill was made up for by the fact that she had a curvy figure, this not exactly excusing her swaying from side to side as a means of tease but giving credit where due. Her makeup was not as heavily applied too, only coming across as garish instead of lame, the color restored when she went inside to offer some verbal tease once the music stopped. She shook her tits and masturbated well enough, oiling herself up for David Perry whose cock she sucked when he entered the room in front of the camera. The modest blowjob led to his titty play, her distaste for being there such that her occasionally passive vaginal ride made sense. She picked up the pace as the scene progressed though, the lack of chemistry between them hampering replay value for me. It ended when he jerked off to her chest, the titty fuck having milked his nuts dry.
Scene Five: Siena, the least attractive gal of the movie as far as I was concerned, was up next and while she had the requisite equipment to get a scene with David Perry, she also looked worn to the point of passing her up unless it was last call and I hadn't busted a nut in a month. I like fleshy gals and all but she had a mannish look to her that simply didn't work, her tease followed by her crawling in bed with the guy. Perhaps if she were made up differently (by Nicky DD for example), something could have been done better with her but the MILF appeal she might have had was overshadowed and how she was almost always passive during her vaginal bout of boning felt like a waste of time. Yeah, it ended with a titty pop and yeah, she did all the usual stuff but the blowjob (for example) showed how limited her skills were and there was little else to recommend about the scene.
Scene Six: Dominno -Isabela, a slightly exotic looking gal with a fleshy body, was up last and she displayed the kind of teasing appeal I prefer, smiling as she rubbed herself and her red tape quickly lost from her nipples. Her red thong looked nice too, her mostly toned body possessing ample flesh to work with but not coming off like she was rounded up at a gulag like the last player was. When the decent tease was finished, she was paired up with another foreign mope, Kamil Klein, the guy showing a lot of attention to her breasts as she looked at the camera. This dynamic played out the entire time too, Kamil wanting to get off with her and the sexy little brunette wanting a payday. It was clear that she was no stranger to sucking a cock, her lips wrapping around his rod to engulf it quite naturally, and her riding skills showed she was not new to vaginal sex either, albeit more passive than I prefer, but I found she would turn on her libido from time to time (maybe stopping when she caught herself having fun) and I really wanted to see more of that displayed in the scene (David is not the best director for that kind of thing). It ended as expected with the titty pop and that was all she wrote.
Summary: Fresh Jugs 8 by director David Perry for Zero Tolerance started off very strongly, so strongly that I almost forgot who was directing the movie, but it quickly relapsed into the usual problems his movies have displayed in the past so I felt almost generous when I rated it as a Rent It. Gianna's scene was the sole purpose for checking this movie out though a few others displayed some minimal spark keeping them from becoming completely disposable, the idea that catering to a breast loving crowd without the same levels of chemistry, heat, passion or other connections between the performers striking me as problematic. In short, I found Fresh Jugs 8 a little stale given so much of the cast was acting like clock watching foreign whores, weakening the entire project substantially. If David really directed the Gianna scene without help, it shows he can do it when working with the right crew but unlike better directors, he can't get the best performances out of a mediocre (or worse) cast.
