Cast: Kiera King, Lexington Steele, Mandy Sweet, Sean Michaels, Ashton Pierce, Katie St. Ives, Missy Woods, Jon Jon, Shyla Stylez
Length: 178:39 minutes
Date of Production: 7/14/2009
Extras: The extras section included a photogallery and cumshot recap as expected but also a series of short POV scenes that appear to have been shot concurrently with the main footage and edited into this section of the DVD but using Vince as the meat puppet (Kiera=8:18 minutes, Mandy's lasting 7:43 minutes, Ashton's lasting 5:18 minutes, Missy's lasting 9:29 minutes, and Shyla's lasting 13:51 minutes). This section also had a separate photogallery, some trailers, and a popshot recap for those keeping track.
Audio/Video Quality: Black Listed was presented in an anamorphic widescreen color with an approximate aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Vince Vouyer for Vince Vouyer Unleashed using the MPEG-2 encoding and 480 resolution you would expect of a standard definition title. The lighting was flat and even most of the time (except some flare ups or stylish attempts at trying new things), still better than that which you'll find in most gonzo porn and topping a few of Vince's recent efforts. There was little grain and the fleshtones were even better this time making me think that the HD picture might look even better on one of the newer high resolution formats, but only by a small margin given the look of the ladies thanks to his fine work shooting the scenes (Jonny Grownwood on the editing board here) with the bitrate coming in under the 2.8 Mbps rate most of the time. There was some pattern noise this time that bugged me but it was not the worst I've watched in the last few months. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look as good as Vince could make them and given his level of skill developed over the years, he showed he still has what it takes to make hot women even hotter looking but I hated the company logo used as a watermark in the lower right hand corner so often. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English (192 Kbps bitrate) but there was no separation between the channels and the vocals were on the low side in all but a few circumstances.

Body of Review: Vince Vouyer has long been one of the best directors of gonzo material, his recent works for Vince Vouyer Unleashed showing some of the young pups that he still has what it takes to showcase nasty, slutty women in all their respective glory. His latest title in this lineup is the interracial Black Listed, starring an assortment of sexy young newcomers as well as one of the reigning queens of gonzo, Shyla Stylez. The five scenes all had something to appreciate and followed a strict formula to include some heated tease, the ladies taking on men like Sean Michaels and Lexington Steele to prove they were not dilettantes when it comes to getting boned like they were owned. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Katie St. Ives and Ashton Pierce with Sean Michaels
Scene One: Kiera King, a trampy looking gal wearing slutty attire, was up first with Lexington Steele, some time wasted on the politics of interracial scenes. The fast forward fodder aspect of the dialogue aside, there was just enough tease between the performers and director rambling on about the subject to keep me watching but I'd have preferred the propaganda be set off in an extra or something (if you think about it, anyone watching the movie is not going to have an issue with the subject so why waste time preaching to the choir?). Her micro-mini skirt was tiny and the pink neon fishnets enhanced her slut appeal, Kiera sucking Lex off as best she could before she did likewise with his cock in her pussy. Why Lex wouldn't go down on her is a mystery but it was interesting to see how such a small gal handled such a large pecker, including some anal work where she looked like she was getting torn apart. It was a passive ride though and that weakened it substantially, her taste testing leading to more penetration where the look on her face was priceless. Lex ended it by launching a load of genetic juice to her face, her "dick drunk" attitude laughed at by Vince (who said he was Santa Clause: "ho ho ho"" and she did not appreciate it).
Missy Woods and Sean Michaels
Scene Two: Mandy Sweet, a large breasted blond with powerful legs and a fleshy ass, was up next with studly Sean Michaels, his twenty year reign as a premium player making him the best she could hope for. Mandy didn't seem too interested in playing the racial card by joining the discussion, even Sean changing gears to focus on her ample sample of a booty. He spanked her and she responded well to his caresses, Mandy clearly getting turned on as Sean paid substantial attention to her. This led to a short blowjob and Sean, like a real man, reciprocating by going down on her, the sweet wet pussy among the pinkest I've seen. Mandy did not have to overact like Kiera did, her juices freely flowing as she fingered herself, the young lady actively riding him vaginally when she was on top but taking him deeper when kicked back to let him do most of the work. With a bit of toning up, she could really be something special, the gal pushing past the pain of his big cock to take the facial and offer him some post coital head.
Scene Three: Ashton Pierce, a brunette with blond highlights and huge tattoos, was up next with perky redhead Katie St. Ives, the gals sitting on the bed reciting the usual line about how their agents don't want them doing interracial scenes. Of the two, Katie looked the best to me and seemed to have the better attitude, the gals calling Sean Michaels on the phone to invite him over (to 98 Maple Leaf Avenue). The gals goofed on him and Katie's pretty eyes lit up when Sean walked over to them, his bulge prominently displayed. Katie initiated the sex by slobbing his knob a little, Ashton jumping in at Sean's suggestion so he could get some loving on Katie's perky tits. The gals shared his cock orally and then vaginally, his size an issue for both of them to handle until they were well warmed up to competently handle him. Sean gave them some head but what struck me as odd was that the gals stayed away from each other as though they were repelled by something, the ending splooged landing on their faces as they discussed getting new agents.
Scene Four: Missy Woods, a curvy blond with pretty blue eyes and an appealing set of curves, was up next with Jon Jon and Sean Michaels. This was the 24 year olds second scene with black men, the Texan stating she was fulfilling all her fantasies in between the usual propaganda about interracial. Sean was confusing nationalities with race and Missy commented on how anyone not wanting to see white gals getting DP'ed by black guys are liars (I'm not a fan of DP's with any race) but once the trash talking was over, it was pretty fun. This was her first black dick in her ass (and subsequently her first black DP), the heart shaped backside drawing a lot of attention from the guys. They warmed her up with caresses and oral and she reciprocated with blowjobs (though only handling a few inches of their pipes). The men then took turns poking her pussy and ass as she squealed in a mixture of pain and pleasure as she blew the other one. Jon took awhile to get fully erect but Sean was rock hard from the get go, Missy actively riding during the vaginal material but far more passive during the anal and DP. There was taste testing and a stream of male commentary here as she moaned, jerking out their nuts of population pudding to her face before she provided some post coital head (Vince calling her a "Texas Tramp" with her response being "Yee Haw motherfucker!").
Scene Five: Shyla Stylez, the voluptuous blond featured on the front cover, was up last to bring it home, her looks and sexual attitude always welcome in a porno as far as I'm concerned. She wore a skimpy black bikini top and colorful booty shorts, the giddy babe telling the world it is okay to work with black men. While I'm not a fan of implants, her overall attitude towards sex has been so positive that she tends to liven up any scene she is in, one of her favorite guys to work with being her partner here, the infamous Lexington Steele. The tease and interview aside, the couple started pawing each other on the couch, Lex savoring her tits while she gave him a lap dance of sorts. Shyla blew him and he skipped giving her head to bone her pussy, her ass warmed up by her fingers for him to drill. The moans were a bit overdone by both of them but the sexual energy was off the charts, the pair showing some chemistry along the way. Shyla was an active vaginal rider and while the anal was tougher for her to handle, she did provide some dirty talk and taste testing. Lex then came with a lot of force, his seed landing all over her face and the couch with Vince joking about it until the camera faded out.
Summary: Black Listed by director Vince Vouyer for Vince Vouyer Unleashed had a few scenes that stood out for me with Shyla Stylez, Mandy Sweet, and Missy Woods leading the pack to score a rating of Recommended. The picture quality was not the best but the sexual energy was decent enough even on the weaker scenes, the premise of "black listing" ladies for working with men of color as lame in practice as it was taking up space in the movie. In short, Black Listed was an interesting set of scenes showing how a handful of attractive young ladies handled men with big peckers, their limits pushed to the edge in a fashion Vince is known for, the ending result including some solid replay value and strokability so check it out.
