Cast: Jayden Jaymes, Anthony Rosano, Kagney Linn Karter, Mick Blue, Carmella Bing, Mark Ashley, Gracie Glam, James Deen, Jenna Presley
Length: 149:11 minutes
Date of Production: 6/21/2009
Extras: The best extra was the 11:19 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed a lot of enthusiasm and energy on the sets of the movie. Mason was clearly in charge and the cast was having a lot of fun as usual with Mason interjecting comments but all the ladies making it clear they wanted to be there working for the director. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, a pop shot recap, and some spam for those that care.
Audio/Video Quality: Curvy Girls 4 was presented in a decent 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as released by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel using the standard definition VC-1 codec with 1080 resolution. The camera work was generally solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows so the picture appeared to be in line with her other work to date. Mason has made or assisted on a number of titles over the years, the technical matters taking back seat (pun intended) to the raw energy of the sex, but her skill levels have definitely been improving with the camera too, showing she pays attention for those that care. I saw no compression artifacts thanks in part to the 15.2 Mbps video bitrate and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The fluid nature of the compositional work aside though, the editing by Bossman Hall helping to enhance this one in large part too, a couple of abrupt changes not indicative of the larger amount of transitions handled just right. 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. The music came from My Beat Shop (Mister KA, Expired Silence, Brassbeats, and Team Green) and was appreciated in each case, the edits helping make the blending of sight and sound especially heated during the montage openings.

Body of Review: Sam No/Mason has always been something of a curiosity in the porn world, initially hiding herself behind a veil but always managing to generate a degree of mystery with her secluded ways. As a director for Elegant Angel, her forte has never been technical perfection so much as providing a lot of nasty sex few people seemed to believe could come from a female, Mason proving them wrong time and again. Her latest release is Curvy Girls 4 Blu-ray, the sequel to Curvy Girls 3 that I enjoyed so much. This time, she called upon Kagney Linn Karter, Jayden Jaymes, and Carmella Bing to liven things up, the rest of the cast adding some heated curvature as well in the five lengthy gonzo scenes shot in straightforward manner with all the tease I appreciate so very much. The company website described the show like this: "Elegant Angel proudly presents Curvy Girls 4, the latest production from the award winning director Sam No. Featuring a collection of the most voluptuous superstars in pornography: Kagney Linn Karter, Jayden Jaymes, Carmella Bing, Jenna Presley, and Gracie Glam. Do not miss these voluptuous starlets seduce the camera lens in epic, mouth watering teases, followed by passionate sex scenes. If you like your girls curvy, then this movie is for you." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Kagney Linn Karter
Scene One: Jayden Jaymes, a gal with a lean belly but awesome curves and beautiful eyes, was up first as she teased outside by the pool in her skimpy green bikini. I know breast enthusiasts adore her but I was infatuated with her ass here, the young lady sporting a perfect tan as she gyrated around the pool in slow motion. Even in standard definition, the show looked great here with her tiny body hairs in evidence, the perfect lighting of the sun enhancing the tease on all the gals that were lucky enough to do their montage outside. The tease led to her taking the show inside to work with moper Anthony Rosano, Jayden aggressively slobbing his knob as he cried out like it pained him to keep from popping. Her hand to gland technique added some friction but her powerful suction made noise and she worked his pipe inside of her pussy as though she were on fire afterwards. I was surprised he didn't sample her juices himself but frankly, given the manner in which she took charge of the scene, I didn't carry a grudge either. Jayden actively rode in all positions and added in a lot of dirty talk among the screams, the levels of energy surpassing much of her current work even as she enjoyed taking his wad of genetic juice to her mouth (and give him a titty fuck for kicks).
Scene Two: Kagney Linn Karter, the fetching young blond bombshell featured on the front cover, was up next and her moves during the tease in the hallway were sweet at showing off her lingerie-enhanced figure to the fullest. While I prefer a lot of strong lighting, the use of shadows and textures here were a nice touch, showing Mason growing as a director in regards to the technical end of things. Kagney was as great looking as ever too, looking her best when she ended up on the couch working with studly Mick Blue. They kissed at length and he warmed her up with his hand, her lap dance generating some serious friction on that turgid pecker of his. The stripper approach to her warm up was fine but it was her chemistry with Mick that really set the scene apart for me, the choking and love taps he gave her indicative of their personal connection. He ate her out well enough and she reciprocated with a fine hummer, her active vaginal riding displaying the way her ass cheeks rippled in dick jerking hotness. Like Jayden's scene, the pair were all sweaty by the time he launched his load of population pudding all across her face (and into her mouth), Kagney letting it run down her chest as she looked towards Mick with admiration.
Scene Three: Carmella Bing, a busty brunette with a healthy amount of flesh to her figure, was up next as she teased in a weirdly covering dress, her ample sample tits the sole focus of the camera for the most part in the outside tease (on an overcast day). I know she may be self conscious about her ass and other body parts but to me, those are the icing on the cake even if her titties are remarkable so why not showcase them too. In any case, the titty tease was fun and was soon replaced by Mark Ashley going off on her chest and pussy inside the house, his oral efforts making her giddy in response. The chemistry they projected was more obvious than any of the other couples in the flick, Mark boning her pussy before she gave him a titty fuck and sweet hummer in return. The messy blowjob led to a longer set of active vaginal positions too, Carmen enjoying the ride every bit as much as he did until he bust a nut all over her tits.
Scene Four: Gracie Glam, a very cute brunette in her first released movie (I think she did some internet work in the past), was up next as she gave an interview revealing her eighth grade sexual antics to the director, her muff buffer skirt showing off her perky little ass in the living room. I really wanted to see her in the full sun doing the usual tease more than splits in the living room but it wasn't happening, my disappointment reminding me that newcomers tend to be a lot less keen on doing montage teases. The interview ended and she was on the couch macking with James Deen, the guy soon going down on her as she sat on his face. She pulled out his pud to jerk him off for a second but she wanted to vaginally ride it even more, kissing James repeatedly as her respiration rate increased substantially. The active ride was nicely done and her thick thighs and round ass were great eye candy, her willingness to do taste testing as the scene progressed adding to her appeal. I really hope to see more of her in the future given this scene and she practically begged him for his load of semen which ended up on her ass, the two ending with some kissing too.
Scene Five: Jenna Presley, a dark haired lass that has been around for awhile, was up next in a fetching bit of lingerie, her hotel room setting as the gal relied less on the place of her tease than the others. She has the implants, flat stomach, and shapely ass needed for the show and despite some modest issues with the all white background washing out the well tanned performer in a few shots, her tease was as strokable as ever even with limited booty tease. Jenna then was in the lap of Mick Blue, the guy diddling her as they kissed and savoring her tits. I really liked how she devoted all of her attention to him when blowing him, her stream of vocals added in as he pounded her pussy. She actively rode when on top of him and the pop shot went to her tits after some choking, the scene quite generic compared to the better three offered up at the beginning of the disc.
Summary: Curvy Girls 4 Blu-ray by director Sam No/Mason for Elegant Angel started off with a bang and got better, sadly peaking way too soon so that after the first three scenes, it dropped off considerably. There was still enough fuck for the buck and technical expertise to merit a rating of from me but I hold the company and director to higher standards than most so your mileage may vary considerably. In short, Curvy Girls 4 was no Curvy Girls 3 but it provided some solid replay value and fans of the ladies will appreciate how well they did here given the circumstances, the end result showing Mason is still on the rise. As far as the high definition Blu-ray version of the release is concerned, like most of the company offerings to date, the visual enhancement was real, significant, and appreciated, the curvy ladies looking better than ever and nearly meriting a full rating level upgrade but for the pricing point clung to by most retailers. Regardless, give it a look in high definition and you may become spoiled for the future titles released by Mason and her peers at Elegant Angel.
