Audio/Video Quality: Asstounding was presented in a solid 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Danny Case for Third Degree using the usual MPEG-2 codec favored for standard definition releases offered up in 480i resolution. The settings were bare bone basic which allowed for fair lighting that minimized the grain, video noise, and aliasing of the visual elements. The down side was that there was a need for more lighting and a steadier camera. The composition of the shots was generally favorable to the ladies for the most part but the almost random editing seemed to distract at times when the camera would zoom in on some blemish or other visually weak moment and be left in the final product. The video bitrate varied considerably but seemed to hover around the mid 4.8 Mbps mark, few compression artifacts observed and the overall impression given to be favorable despite some grain and soft focus issues at times. The point of the show was to showcase ladies with well rounded rumps, the kind of gals that inspire many a wet dream and in that aspect, it served the purpose well. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the 192 Kbps standard under a 48 kHz sampling rate, the vocals showing no separation but the minimalist opening music giving the slight impression that it did matter to someone to add in some head space. The dynamic range was otherwise limited but this being gonzo porn, I really did not expect a whole lot in that regard.
Body of Review: Danny Case and his work at Third Degree has always been interesting to watch for me because it is clear the man is a fan of the ladies given the way he continually provides a running commentary during his work. That said, he likes the gals wearing sexy lingerie and looking their best, aspects he tends to make happen in movies such as Asstounding, a set of five scenes focusing on booty babes we'd all like to plow. From a look at the front cover featuring Kagney Linn Karter at her curvy best, or the back cover where Kristina Rose, Kelly Divine, Sarah Vandella (well, under her latest alias of "Sara Sloane"), and Brooke Haven provide the ultimate in "back-up", I was sure this would be a winner. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Brooke Haven, a curvy blond with a wealth of experience, was up first as she teased director Danny Case using her body and dirty talk. She was dressed in minimalist lingerie and she enticed him to join her using her wicked ways, her ass looking as fleshy as ever (and a perfect fit for the show). Her solo efforts aside, she launched into a very aggressive blowjob in POV fashion, Danny giving her a lick or two before he started banging her dripping wet pussy. Brooke was active during most positions and showed her love of pecker plenty, doing taste testing and otherwise milking his balls dry with an ending, hand-assisted hummer (though the edit to that portion of the scene seemed strained).
Sarah Vandella (as Sara Sloane)
Scene Two: Kagney Linn Karter, the beautiful babe gracing the front cover, was up next wearing black stretch pants and stripped top, her black thong allowed to hang out as it ran up her ass crack. Kagney has a rump well suited for the movie too, the gal removing her itchy bra to reveal equally impressive surgical work. For such a relative newcomer, she had great moves and put them on display, the gal cuddling up on the white couch to slob the knob of moper James Deen. Her oral worked wonders for getting a rise out of the lad, the young lady actively impaling herself vaginally on his cock. She moaned as if she meant it and divided her time between looking at him and the camera, James soon rubbing out a nut of genetic juice to her face.
Scene Three: Kelly Divine, a healthy gal with a great big butt, was up next wearing pink & black lingerie that barely covered her curvy frame. Danny talked to her throughout the initial portion of the tease (as he always does), emphasizing how much he appreciated her ass as she teased with it. The tease over, she dropped to the knees of Mark Wood, engulfing his cock with her DSLs and working him to the bone, her joy of giving a hummer certainly motivating enough fodder for some hand to gland action at home. He also gave barely a lick but she was soon bouncing on his cock like crazy, riding him for all he was worth and doing taste testing, the anal slowing her down but not by too much. She streamed some dirty talk that would make a seasoned sailor blush and he pounded away at her dark hole, eventually jerking off a smallish load of population pudding to her face as she watched (eyes open, providing post coital head).
Scene Four: Kristina Rose, the cute brunette spitfire so many fans have been following over the past year or so, was up next wearing animal print clothing as she teased in a white living room. Her black mesh top left nothing to the imagination regarding her tits and she was already warmed up and seeking relief when the scene started. She pulled her thong aside and masturbated at length, her asshole just as ready to plow and her pussy, her mouth taking in the dick of studly Mick Blue to begin the pairing portion of the scene. She tormented him and it was clear that they had some personal chemistry together, her seasoned mouth inhaling his cock without any need for hand assistance (though she gave some at times). He used his fingered to open her up as well, banging her pussy very hard as she begged him to do in various positions. She also slowed down for the anal sex but it was clear she savored it too, Mick jerking out a wad of semen to her mouth to finish things up.
Scene Five: Sara Sloane (Sarah Vandella), the attractive company contract gal, was up last as she shook her moneymaker while wearing a bright pink & black stripped outfit combined with fishnet stockings that enhanced her physical appeal. She teased and masturbated, showing herself to be a sensation slut, Danny Case inspecting the goods he was going to work with. Sara was extremely proactive when it came time to do the POV blowjob too, sucking his nuts and otherwise orally servicing him before he went down on her. The camera handed off, he went to town plowing her pussy, Sara's over the top vocals distracting but only slightly. The various vaginal positions ended up milking his balls dry too, this time in the form of a vaginal creampie, but she sucked him off one last time for good measure.
Summary: Asstounding by director Danny Case for Third Degree was a lot of fun, had some heated scenes, and provided the kind of replay and strokability I expect out of my contemporary porn so I rated it as Recommended. There were a few rough spots in need of polishing up but the basic dynamic at play suited my taste for curvy lady ass and the cast was almost always ready to rumble. In short then, Asstounding had a parade of curvy asses well worth checking out repeatedly, Danny's tastes as a director still providing some solid material for your mental spank banks.
