Cast: Bobbi Starr, Mark Wood, Chloe Conrad, Mark Davis, Jessica Moore, Bill Bailey, MacKenzee Pierce, Michael Stefano, Madison Parker, Pat Myne
Length: 141:45 minutes
Date of Production: 2009
Extras: The best extra was the 25:39 minute long Behind the Scenes feature (a link for a web version is included in my review by the way), the ladies getting some extra attention as well as the cast during the making of the show. There were also some trailers, a photogallery, and a pop shot recap as well as a true double sided DVD cover and slipcase for it.

Audio/Video Quality: Ass The World Turns was presented in 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 editing seemed to distract at times when some scenes were not as polished. The video bitrate varied considerably but seemed to hover around the mid 4.6 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 256 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 directs for Third Degree these days, his gonzo style fairly basic in terms of the trade. He likes brunettes and sexy lingerie, especially if they are into anal sex with him and his buddies so it made sense that his latest release making it to me was full of all that kind of thing in Ass The World Turns. The formula of the show was the same he employs in almost all of his movies too, some tease with soft focus, light solo work with tease, and then hardcore pounding anal sex in a one-on-one fashion. Toys came into play to stretch the ladies asses out and they appeared moderately capable in terms of how well they engaged each other, the resulting lack of chemistry in a few cases weakening the overall score more than a little bit. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
MacKenzie Pierce with Michael Stefano
Scene One: Bobbi Starr, a well known anal queen, was up first in her red & black lingerie, posing on the second story landing as she showed off her curvy body. The tease was a bit too stylish for me but it improved when she went inside to masturbate with the glass dildo. Her juices brought forth Mark Wood from that point and he serviced her orally after she slobbed his knob with a lot of skill. There was a lot of vaginal plowing here but the emphasis was clearly on anal with lots of taste testing, the white bed providing too stark a contrast between the couple and the bed for the camera to handle. On a plus note, Bobbi jerked and sucked him off at the end to drain his batch of genetic juice from his balls, swallowing the successful results of her work.
Scene Two: Chloe Conrad, a lean blond with large tits, was up next wearing a metallic animal print bikini as she danced on a table, feeling herself up as she slowly masturbated anally. The tease over, she then took care of Mark Davis, the man kissing her as he caressed her body intensely, going down on her before she reciprocated orally on his dick. They then bumped uglies as she strove to impale herself on his cock vaginally, showing no chemistry but giving a show all the same as she bounced around on him. He then started banging her ass slowly but she did not appear too happy, Mark eventually turning her around to drop the wad of population pudding into her mouth.
Scene Three: Jessica Moore, a fetching blond wearing a yellow bikini in the house, was up next as she followed the formulaic proceeding, my only concern being the wart on her ass (near the hole). She used a metallic silver vibrator to diddle herself with and seemed to enjoy herself, placing herself on the stairs to do the dirty deed. The camera looked completely different when the quick edit placed her on the white couch with Bill Bailey, her lips wrapped around his dick as he moaned overly loud. The blowjob led to him vaginally screwing the passive pussy, Jessica getting better after a short time but slowing back down during the anal again. There wasn't much oral after the initial porking, Bill jerking out his semen to her chest to finish himself off, a touch of post coital head finishing her off for the day.
Scene Four: MacKenzee Pierce, a skinny brunette wearing a punk rock styled bikini outfit, was up next teasing and masturbating before Michael Stefano joined her. She had already stretched her pussy and ass out for the moment, pushing past the pain of the toys penetrating her to begin appreciating the experience. She left the anal plug in as she blew him but she appeared distracted, sharing no chemistry with the man as she did some play for pay with him. There was nothing technically wrong with her work here and she went along with the technical DP just fine, the intermittent oral as well handled as most of her peers in the flick, the missing spark just defeated the purpose for me more than it would had I only watched porn a few times a year. They did oral, vaginal, and anal sex tricks as expected but frankly, it was the weakest scene of the batch due to the way they did each other. The scene ended when he unleashed his seed into her mouth by his own hand, the swallowing the best part of it all.
Scene Five: Madison Parker, the curvy babe featured on the front cover, was up last as she pranced about to weird music in her lingerie. The overwhelming amount of light wasn't bad to start with but it wore thin quickly, her oral antics on Pat Myne soon leading to him drilling her hard vaginally and anally. The blemishes aside, she maintained some eye contact and gave him her money's worth but the lack of chemistry again weakened the action for me, even her active rides. She was passive and that killed it for me, the ending splooge landing in her mouth when she jerked/sucked him off to completion.
Summary: Ass The World Turns by director Danny Case for Third Degree started off with some potential but it soon turned boring for me, the ladies not into their partners and the men treating the gals like cock sockets so I rated this one as a Skip It. In short, Ass The World Turns could have worked with better meat puppets to get the ladies more interested, the anal play for pay aspects of the scenes all too obvious for this reviewer to forget.
