Audio/Video Quality: Titlicious Blu-ray was presented in 1.78:1 widescreen as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground using the AVC codec for a modest 1080i resolution. Shot last year, the production certainly benefitted from the editing by Nick P, the camera work slightly shaky but serviceable all the same. The fleshtones were on the pale side here but the enhanced resolution of the high definition version of the show (the company did not see fit to send out an SD copy, times must truly be tough for them) was pretty decent, lots of little details sticking out as I watched on my 60" television. Surprisingly though, there was a fair amount of grain and some video noise, the mastering process only able to clean up some of it due to the levels of lighting on the original productions. The video bitrate seemed to hover around the 12.3 Mbps mark most of the time, perhaps the company should ditch the trailers if it means impacting the picture quality so much. Otherwise, the composition of most scenes wasn't the best the company has offered of late, chopping off heads and leaving way too much empty space on the sides of the screen, making me wonder if Robby was beating off instead of supervising the crew when this was shot. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English (using an audio bitrate of 448 Kbps and the usual 48 kHz sampling rate) with a minimalist leaning similar to the rest of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. While there wasn't much separation between the channels though the ladies were almost always clearly heard and their moans added to the enjoyment of the show for those keeping track.
Body of Review: Robby D. and Digital Playground have been such a productive pairing of forces over the years that he has become their de facto lead director, shooting virtually everything of theirs that comes out these days (though under the supervision of Joone on the big budget releases). As such, it is not unrealistic to expect a lot of his work to look alike, the guy using the same crew and maintaining such a busy schedule taking a toll over time (believe me, I know exactly how it is). Still, while much of his work is entertaining for those that aren't really into the hardest of hardcore porn, his releases typically lack decent extras and often have running times less than half of what the competition provides so that was why I had mixed feelings when I finally got a chance to see the Blu-ray edition of Titlicious earlier today. Yeah, the extras sucked donkey balls worse than usual but the up side was that Robby only sacrificed some of the picture quality to offer up an almost competitive running time of just under three hours. The focus of the movie was on large tits of course, the five scenes including a lot of tease where the ladies used their big racks to impress their male partners. My main interest here was for the scene starring Shyla Stylez though, most of the others delegated to the second tier breast squad from past experience. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Cassandra Calogera, the fleshy brunette on the right side of the pack was up first, engaging with Scott Nails after ample titty play. Her tease was the best part of the scene and as pale as she looked, she gave a decent blowjob, her vaginal ride lacking in energy, enthusiasm, or an active stance most of the time. Still, her tits flopped around a lot and given the emphasis of the show, it made sense that generic bedroom sex not be the focal point here, the gal getting a "sort of" creampie as Scott pulled out of her while ejaculating his wad of genetic juice. The lack of chemistry weakened the scene but again, the titty play was pretty good.
Scene Two: Rebecca Lane, the redhead seen on the back row on the left side of the front cover, was up next as she interrupted the chess match between studly Mick Blue and James Deen in the living room. There was a lot of verbal banter here that didn't help the stroke value but at least she removed her clothing for money to reveal a fleshy body, the implants not looking as good in high definition as they could have. James immediately started snacking on her ass crack, moving forward to kiss her as Mick went down on her more completely. James then stuck with her tits as she rolled her eyes, Rebecca slobbing his knob until he began boning her vaginally. That was when she began sucking off Mick but both men took plenty of turns drilling her pussy and mouth as the scene continued. I liked the degree of titty fucking she gave them from time to time and while her chemistry with them was lacking, she showed she could be a motivated (active) rider when suitably warmed up. She did her best milking an early load of population pudding orally but the guys unleashed most of their seed at the end to her face, glazing her just enough to cover the lower half of her face.
Scene Three: Shyla Stylez, the busty blond bombshell featured on the front cover, was up next in a yellow bikini as she washed a red car in the driveway. The soap suds helped enhance her already perfect rack, the hotty bending over and sudsing herself as much as the car certainly adding to the stroke value as her clothing came off and attracted studly Mick Blue to join her. Shyla removed his outfit and dropped to her knees to blow him passionately, her devotion to the oral arts long known as a selling point for the popular starlet. The titty fuck and play was again top notch so they kissed before moving inside the house to get truly frisky. Shyla gave a wonderful vaginal ride followed by an admittedly more passive anal penetration; at least until she was used to him at which time she impaled herself soundly on his pecker anally. There was more anal and it finally ended when she blew him to completion, savoring his wad of spew happily until the camera faded out.
Scene Four: Melissa Lauren, the attractive brunette with gorgeous blue eyes seen on the far left side of the cover, was up next when she interrupted Mick Blue in his scenic home office. They talked about her troubles on the couch and one thing led to another, Mick making his move on her with a kiss, followed by a grope, until both of them were half dressed. The rest of their clothing soon feel to the wayside and she blew him with a modicum of energy, the lack of chemistry only hurting the replay value as far as I was concerned. Mick waited until some moderately active vaginal riding was over to go down on her in the slightest, some intermittent oral added in by both of them as they moved from a wild vaginal fuck to a far slower anal pounding. The ending pop shot went to her chest and felt premature though, the scene the second best of the show for me.
Scene Five: Chavon Taylor, the busty chick on the back row towards the right hand side of the front cover, was up last in a lengthy scene where she did both studly Mick Blue and third tier moper Tony DeSergio in the bedroom. The boring setup aside, her tits looked good in their skimpy pink & white polka dotted bikini, her ability to booty shake not a major selling point for me as she did her internet singles. By the time she joined them in their bedroom chat, she was wearing a green top and blue booty shorts, the camera checking her out like most of us would do in her presence, her nurse outfit not a bad change of pace. The men took turns playing with her tits and she seemed to like Mick's cock the best, the gal sucking and vaginally fucking both of them well enough. The oiled up titty fuck was pretty hot and while it took her forever to ride actively, it seemed that there was always one cock too many, even her passive anal drawing too much attention to her roast beef labia. The scene closed up when the guys gave her a load to the face and one to the chest, Chavon rubbing it in like skin cream.
Summary: Titlicious Blu-ray by director Robby D. for Digital Playground had a great scene starring Shyla Stylez and Mick Blue as well as a few others worth some seed but the overall quality was much like many of the director's works of late, just not as full of chemistry and passion so I rated it as a Rent It. I was okay with the tradeoff between running time and loss of picture quality but the inclusion of lame extras when the space could be better used for a bonus scene, a BTS feature, or pretty much anything a medium to high end company would offer on a release struck me as problematic when paying such a premium for a high definition title. In short, Titlicious was not a bad fuck flick by any means but I guess I expect more from the company that led the way in Blu-ray so early on when the HD formats were still in the air, the added cost making this one a title to check out first before spending the extra money.
