Audio/Video Quality: Southern Belles was presented in a visually appealing anamorphic widescreen color using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Mike Quasar for Third Degree Films using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480 resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mike's works in the past, the overall look straightforward even with a minimal nod to soft focus a few times. The grain was minimal as was the video noise and I commend the company for upgrading to some high end cameras awhile back, the enhancement assisting Mike in providing some of the best looking smut around. The bitrate tended to hover around the 5.6 Mbps mark most of the time I paid any attention to it and this helped elevate the production a notch in my book. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, each of them finding Mike's technical expertise matching the right look to make them look their best. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the standard 256 Kbps rate using a 48 kHz sampling rate most titles are mastered with, the aural experience fairly limited due to the nature of the gonzo shoot. There was also no separation between the channels and the dynamic range was as truncated as ever, standard gonzo audio being okay for most consumers.
Body of Review: Mike Quasar is one of the most experienced directors in all of porn, his works for Third Degree Films and related companies almost always managing to interest me when the casting is right. His latest movie making it my way (while I wait for his "Official To Catch A Predator Parody") this weekend was Southern Belles, a subject near & dear to my heart (or at least my penis). The emphasis this time was on providing ladies from the south in short vignettes with the usual mopes, the overacting striking me as above and beyond that of most all sex flicks these days. The good news is that it stars two of my favorite Texan hotties, Kagney Linn Karter (from Spring, Texas IIRC) and Alexis Texas (the gal from middle Texas so many have found endearing), both ladies featured on the front cover. The basic idea here was to provide a short story where the ladies ended up boning some chump or other, the quality of meat puppets far more variable than that of the ladies, the amount of tease less than Mike's general gonzo offerings. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Alexis Texas with Anthony Rosano
Scene One: Briana Blair, a lean blond hotty wearing a short "Heidi" type skirt and top, was up first as she made up for a grievous error regarding Mr. Pete's loofa, performing a striptease for him in the bathroom. Her neon pink undies looked great on her but better on the floor, his eyes never wandering as she showed off her curvaceous body before slobbing his knob. He sucked her tits and ass in return, the couple moving to the sanctity of the bedroom where they vaginally screwed in several positions with taste testing. Her moans were forced at times but she was an active rider when on top of him, his wealth of genetic juice launched by his own hand to her face closing it out.

Scene Two: Tara Lynn Foxx, another attractive gal with light hair and a goofy accent, was up next as she plotted to steal Mark Wood away from his NASCAR watching by donning some skimpy lingerie and bringing him a beer. Needless to say, her tramp routine won him over, the gal climbing into bed with him for the man to orally service, Tara blowing him before climbing on top to actively ride his pecker. The vaginal sex positions worked for both of them and he skipped doing anal like I suspect he wanted from her, Mark rubbing out a nut of population pudding to her tits to finish her off.
Scene Three: Gracie Glam, a fetching brunette from North Carolina, was up next as a cutie willing to provide a sort of medical service for ailing cowpoke Rocco Reed on a living room couch. Granted, his accent was too lame for words but at least he didn't overdo it like Anthony and the others in terms of providing a stream of blather, preferring instead to allow his hands, mouth, and cock do his talking for him. He helped undress her after a short introduction, caressing her ass before she took his modest member inside of her mouth to warm him up. They actively rode in several vaginal positions while on a tan couch, his wad of semen gracing her mouth when they were done. There was some chemistry between them, or at least the appearance of chemistry, the best being yet to come as it were in the movie.
Scene Four: Alexis Texas, the sexy hotty on the right side of the front cover, was up next as she was taken to task for making a lousy mint julep for pappy Anthony Rosano. To make it up to him, he wanted a massage and peep show, the massage rather short but the show providing a nice look at her curvy body wearing white and sheer blue lingerie. She gave him a lap dance and he pawed her, soon sucking her ass before it was her turn to perform oral on his dick. Alexis gave him a sweet, hand-assisted hummer as she stuck her ass in the air, the visual appeal never waning as far as this reviewer is concerned. He did most of the work in the vaginal penetration acts, her smile showing she was okay with the scene but not into him that much. The scene closed out when he jerked off a small load of semen to her face, hitting her in the eye but otherwise okay.
Scene Five: Kagney Linn Karter, the beautiful blond contract starlet featured on the left side of the front cover, was up last with cheating mope Anthony Rosano. She made a perfect mint julep and rushed him into a session of her usual profession (she ran a whore house) because she had another customer coming over, bearing her bottom for him to savor orally. His oral ministrations continued until he began banging her pussy, her modestly active riding skills only displayed intermittently, though the blowjob and titty fucking were pretty solid in most respects. She yelled a lot and her own southern accent left something to be desired, his load of spunk gracing her mouth and face before the quick edit ended the show in favor of the credits.
Summary: Southern Belles by director Mike Quasar for Third Degree Films lacked in establishing the "southern" credentials of the cast in just about every case though I admit all of the ladies certainly had substantial physical appeal as far as I was concerned. The amount of strokability, replay value, and fuck for the buck merited an overall rating of Recommended though, it just could have been so much better had they not gone out of their way to make it a spoof of southern stereotypes. In short, Southern Belles had Kagney Linn Karter and Alexis Texas looking as hot as ever and the rest of the ladies showed plenty of sexy potential so check this one out and have a good time, you won't be sorry.
