Jonni Darko's The Best Of Head is a two-disc collection from Evil Angel that focuses on, if you couldn't guess from the title, blowjobs. Good blowjobs. Not the sloppy, lazy, uninspired kind your ex used to hand out of birthdays and when she had too much to drink but the kind that take a bit of effort and which are all the better for it. That said, with over seven hours of content spread across the two discs here, is it too much of a good thing?
Let's start with a basic run down of who does the cocksucking here:
Andy San Dimas / Angelina Valentine / Asa Akira / Phoenix Marie / Alexandra Quinn / Ashley Blue / Jamie Huxley / Roxy Deville / Roxy Deville 2 / Tory Lane / Gianna Michaels / Gianna Michaels 2 / Bobbi Bliss / Bobbi Bliss 2 / Tia Tanaka / Tia Tanaka 2 / Lexi Love / Delilah Strong And Alektra Blue / Jamie Huxley And Haley Scott / Jamie Huxley And Haley Scott 2 / Tory Lane And Roxy Deville / Francesca Le / Francesca Le 2 / Francesca Le 3
Avy Scott And Gianna Michaels / Kristina Rose And Chayse Evans / Sadie West / Sadie West 2 / Jandi Lin / Jenny Hendrix / Jenny Hendrix 2 / Julie Night / Phoenix Marie / Ava Divine / Gianna Michaels / Jayna Oso / McKenzie Miles / McKenzie Miles 2 / Lana Croft / Velvet Rose / Carmella Bing / Carmella Bing 2 / Lana Croft / Kelly Divine / Kristina Rose / Kristina Rose 2 / Lexi Love / Lexi Love 2
As you can tell by taking a look at the cast list, there's a fair bit of repetition in terms of performers. Whether or not this is a plus or a minus is obviously going to depend on your preferences. Personally, I have no problem enjoying four Gianna Michaels scenes or getting off to any one of the Roxy Deville or Kristina Rose scenes. I'd have liked to have seen more from Ashley Blue, who only pops up in one delightfully filthy scene, and could have done without any one of the three Francesa Le scenes - but all in all, there is a pretty good selection of attractive female talent here to suck and swallow. Darko also spices things up by throwing in quite a few tag team efforts, and let's face it, any red blooded male who says he hasn't fantasized about a double header like any one of the scenes we're treated to here is a liar.
Almost all of the scenes in this compilation are oral only, though periodically you might get a bit of an opening tease. Sadie West's scene on the second disc is a good example, as it starts off with this gorgeous dark haired curvy beauty taking her bikini down and touching herself for the camera before going full force into the POV blowjob you all want to see her perform. There are also a few scenes here and there where the girls mix it up just a bit by using their hands or their feet. Phoenix Marie, about three quarters of the way through her scene on disc two, takes her partner's cock between her feet and gives it a good foot fucking for a few minutes before taking him back in her mouth and swallowing his load. She almost jerks him to completion with her feet, but goes back to oral just at the last minute.
We're treated to a well rounded cast, as we get big tit queens like Gianna included as well as smaller breasted, perky cuties like Sadie West swallowing swords. Dark haired girls are here, as are blondes and even some redheads (not natural ones, though, sorry!). Look for white girls, Asian girls and Spanish girls dutifully performing oral chores for our enjoyment, with pretty Jayna Oso performing an admirably enthusiastic ball draining session (she warms up with a dildo before moving on to the real thing) that gets incredibly messy before it's over. Puzzlingly enough, there aren't any black girls, Indian girls or big beautiful woman types included here (Gianna Michaels being the closest as she's incredibly voluptuous), instead on you're left with fairly standard sized porno starlets to ogle, but for many out there that won't be a bad thing, even if it does prevent the disc from offering up quite as much variety as maybe some of us would have liked.
Does this release get repetitive, however? Yep. Absolutely it does. It also, it should be said, makes no false claims as to what it's going to deliver. Right there on the front of the packaging we're told it's seven hours of blowjobs. Go into this one armed with that knowledge and you'll obviously figure out right away whether this is your kink or not. Personally, this one worked really well in shorter doses. Watching seven hours of head in one sitting is a bit of a daunting task, but really, do you need to do that? Nope. This compilation is masturbation fodder of the highest order for the blowjob lover out there and on that level, you can't really nitpick it too much.
This compilation is taken from various shot on digital video productions but generally everything looks pretty clean presented here in a reasonably stable anamorphic 1.33.1 fullframe presentation. There is some mild edge enhancement in a couple of spots and a noticeable bit of mpeg compression evident throughout in the darker scenes, which isn't uncommon when you cram as much content onto a standard definition disc as Evil Angel has done here. Skin tones look nice and natural in terms of color but some obvious DVNR has been applied and sometimes the girls' skin takes on a waxy tone. The compositions are dead on, and aside from the fact that this digital video production looks like a digital video production and as such suffers from the minor defects usually associated with the format, everything looks as good as you'd realistically expect it to.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is quite sufficient. The dialogue comes through cleanly and clearly as do all of the moans and groans, though they aren't all that high in the mix - this is part of the aesthetic, as the music seems to be what Belladonna wanted up front. The levels are otherwise well balanced and there are no problems with background hiss or distortion.
Extras are slim on this disc, limited to a cast list, a filmography section, animated menus, a web-link, and scene selection.
The Best Of Head might be overkill when taken all at once, but the same can be said of any specialty release such as this. Looking at it from a broader angle, it's a great selection of strong scenes, each one showcasing some enthusiastic hardcore oral action and delivering just what its audience wants. The video quality isn't perfect and the lack of extras will irritate some, but if you're a fan or filmed oral sex, you can consider this one recommended.
