Audio/Video Quality: Girls of Red Light District: Gianna Michaels was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame by Red Light District using a variety of directors who shot the scenes for their original releases. The lighting was almost always strong and the cameras capably manned, some compositional mishaps and minor grain appearing at times. There were a lot of close up shots in the various scenes, almost as if it were a required selling point the editors were told to leave in, the video bitrate hovering in the 2.8 Mbps range using the usual MPEG-2 codec for this standard definition compilation of previously released scenes. The fleshtones were generally accurate and while there was still a need for polishing up most of the scenes, the overall look of them was pretty decent. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English, the 192 Kbps aural bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate about average for an adult production. I could most of the vocals and the music was rarely a factor here, the experience not elevating the visual aspects particularly well but serving much like most gonzo productions expect the audio too in providing an array of loud screams and moans (with some dirty talk).
Body of Review: Red Light District was founded years ago by a handful of performer-turned-directors when they obtained financing to start a new type of gonzo production company, catering specifically to the rain coater crowd with a lot of straightforward smut one could appreciate. Along the way, there were some bumps in the road and the inevitable decline noticed by many but ultimately, they still shoot some solid smut and are now offering a series of compilations to help pay the bills. The first of these coming my ways was Girls of Red Light District: Gianna Michaels, a series of six scenes lasting over three hours starring curvy babe Gianna, was provided. As one of the most enthusiastic, energetic, and downright friendly ladies in porn, Gianna certainly thrills her fans even after years of performances thanks to her attitude as much as that fine ass and rack of hers. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Boobs Like Whoa: Gianna, Mr. Pete: Gianna, the thick hotty featured on the front cover, was up first tied up in plastic wrap, only her tits and head free for access by scene partner Mr. Pete. He kissed her as he felt her up, the man freeing her with a paper cutter before allowing her to slob his knob. That oral leaning of hers included some titty fucking and Pete was not gentle when plowing her mouth, leading to some very active vaginal riding as the couple proceeded. She tore into the cock hard and her tits flapped all over the place, showing that natural breasts as large as hers are always a treat for porners. Whether or not Gianna got off for real or it was just a great act might be up for debate but she finished him off by taking his genetic juice in her mouth, the post coital head and minor interview fading out all too soon.
Scene Two: Cunt Gushers 2: Gianna, Manuel Ferrara: Gianna, dressed only in a thong, was up next with studly Manuel Ferrara, some minimal talking leading to the lady aggressively blowing him with lots of spitting to lube him up. He titty fucked her and the energy between them was nearly as solid as their personal chemistry, Manuel savoring her juices at least as much as she had the flavor of his pecker. The camera and lighting here were among the worst of the fuck flick but the passion between them was among the highest, the couple truly appearing to be into one another as they made out on the living room couch. Manuel even used his hand to get her off so very well and the active riding lady showed him up by milking his nuts dry of population pudding for a healthy facial.
Scene Three: Addicted To Boobs 2: Gianna, Chris Charming: Gianna, sporting black hair and a skimpy bra & panty set accentuated by a riding crop, were up next as she tormented Chris Charming in a large walk in closet, the gal seductively teasing before working on the blindfolded mope. He wore some leather wrist restraints too but she was clearly in charge of him via her heated moves, Gianna lightly blowing him before she ordered him to jerk off. Applying some hand to gland action, Gianna maintained eye contact with him as soon as his blindfold came off, the wealth of tease and active vaginal penetration showing less chemistry but a significant amount of performance ability all the same. She frequently used her tits to enhance the experience and her mouth slobbed his knob between positions, Gianna always driving him forward as the sweaty pair plowed forth. Chris had lame rhythm as always but he spread a suitable amount of semen onto her chest at the end, Gianna showing her need for seed triumphing once again.
Scene Four: Be My Bitch 5: Gianna, Sandra Romain: Gianna, a fleshy gal with a great attitude towards enjoying sexual behavior, was up last as the playtoy for presumably retired anal queen Sandra Romain. Each gal was at the top of her game, Sandra's devotion to extreme sex tricks well known throughout the industry as Juan said it was her "last day in America" so her sexy blue outfit did not last long as her "gift" of Gianna came into play. After Juan got in some fingering and plenty of ass tease with Sandra, Gianna was shown blindfolded to a chair with fishnet underwear hardly holding her goodies in. Gianna was looking especially fleshy this day, pleasingly so I might add, with her bountiful body flogged by Sandra as the playing continued. Sexually speaking, the action was similar to the other scenes except the level of BDSM action with the flogger and spanking being more prevalent. Gianna had a lot more pubic hair than usual for those of you into that kind of thing, the babe getting the majority of the toy penetration too. While I wouldn't say that either gal was at her absolute best this time, the waves of enthusiasm and chemistry compensated for it; the result being a fine scene to finish up the movie. Sweet!
Scene Five: Fuck Dolls 6: Gianna, Angela Stone, Brandon Iron: Gianna, a gal with dark hair, huge breasts, and nice DSLs (dick sucking lips), was up first with a very lean bleach blonde named Angela Stone, that wanted to be dominating in her black PVC outfit. Gianna's pink dress didn't last very long once Angela came into the picture, pulling it off as she slapped and otherwise abused her new fuck toy (including verbally). There was spitting, dragging, and pissing all over Gianna's face at which time Brandon Iron joined them to offer up his own expertise (and penis). Angela jammed a dildo up Gianna's pussy, slapping the clitoris, while she sucked Brandon's balls, allowing Jake to dictate terms the entire time. The gals took anal beads, inflatable toys, and did lots of taste testing as Gianna's limits were pushed further than I think she's ever gone before. Angela was not immune to the abuse either, taking anal like a professional and proudly wearing her collar that labeled her a "bitch". After numerous other sex acts, the gals did some cumswapping to close out the scene, providing quite a show as Gianna learned a few tricks. There was lots of passion, energy, and chemistry for fans of the extreme.
Scene Six: 110% Natural 9: Gianna, Steve Holmes, John Strong: Gianna, the gal on the front DVD cover that has been in almost ever large titty movie I've watched of late, was up next wearing a red fishnet body stocking. One look at her and you'll know why she's so popular but it goes beyond her ample chest and includes that wonderfully curvy body, pretty face and even those dreamy eyes. After some limited tease outdoors, she started sucking on John Strong's penis, working over his shaft, balls and tip with some spit and hand to gland action. She's given good head in the past and this was yet another case where she earned every penny of her fee, aggressively inhaling him as though she were getting off by getting him off. He then brought her inside to provide a similar experience to studly (and excessively hairy this time) Steve Holmes. She was just as enthusiastic with his rod and the guys then took turns with her pussy and mouth. She wasn't all that active at fucking (at least not like her oral was) until the very end of the scene when she bounced on John's lap like crazy, eventually milking both of their loads onto her chest.
Summary: Girls of Red Light District: Gianna Michaels by Red Light District greatly benefitted by the inclusion of so many wonderful scenes starring Gianna, all of them from the vaults with nothing new to speak of. In that sense, I really enjoyed the show despite whatever technical limitations some scenes had but the lack of where the scenes came from on the cover or company website weakened it for me as a consumer advocate (after all, if you knew you already had the scenes, you might not buy it but we all like to know, yes?). In any case, I've seen a number of compilations starring Gianna (Michaels) over the years and she has earned every single one of them but as some of them provide nearly twice as much material for the same lower price, I felt obligated to rate this one as Recommended rather than as highly as it could have been with the addition of new material, some extras, or even maybe an introduction by the lady describing anecdotes for the scenes. In short, Girls of Red Light District: Gianna Michaels shows that the company is exploring all options in order to compete against rivals these days, the focal point of using their best talent certainly a time tested one that I couldn't argue with so check this one out.
