Extras: The best extra was a 7:22 minute long bonus scene starring Gina Lynn as she teased the camera in a solo outing. The next best extra was the 9:37 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed Gina getting interviewed and some deleted sex footage. There was also a photogallery, cumshot recap, and trailers for those who care.

Audio/Video Quality: Gina's Filthy Ho's 5 was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as it was originally shot by directors Gina Lynn & Travis Knight for Gina Lynn Productions in the usual 480p resolution using the MPEG-2 codec. The lighting was decent and the fleshtones were almost always accurate with the amount of video noise on the high side. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look pretty good but with Travis working the camera most of the time, it showed his improved skills. The colors and surroundings were accurate with the lighting plentiful which enhanced the look of the women nicely but it was not the best work to date by the director. There were few compression artifacts (the bitrate was lower than usual, often in the 3.2 Mbps range) or watermarks that I could see, marking this as a step forward for his style to showcase the ladies. The best way to describe this movie is to say that it seemed to be a home movie shot reasonably well if not exactly up to porn standards, the abrupt edits jarring at times and the lighting subpar occasionally but indicative of the mood Travis seemed to be going for. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English audio tracks in 192 Kbps (using a 48 kHz sampling rate) were okay and I could plainly hear the vocals of the cast at all times but the music still seemed a bit generic to me; an area that I have long fussed about.
Tristan Taylor with William Wacket
Body of Review: Gina Lynn & Travis Knight have been making porn for a long time, cutting back of late as the couple explore a variety of options with how their careers have been evolving of late, only occasionally releasing a title on their Gina Lynn Productions label. The latest release sent my way by the two is called Gina's Filthy Ho's 5, a showcase of relatively new talent with some solo action by Gina Lynn tossed in for fans. I'll admit up front that my big reason for selection the movie was to see whatever material starring Gina would be on the title, the movie advertising this more as a comeback for Travis than anything else. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Gina Lynn, the busty blond featured on the right side of the front cover, was up first in the same outfit in a tease/masturbation scene. It wasn't very long but she broke the fourth wall to repeatedly address her fans, the montage taking ample time to showcase her with clothes on rather than rush things as is so typically the case. The only thing I really hated aside from the shortness of the scene was that there was so much light that it washed out the picture from time to time.
Scene Two: Tristan Taylor, the cute blond seen on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up next as she appeared with moper William Wacket in a basic room, the gal dropping to her knees to slob his knob when directed to do so. He grabbed her neck as a precursor to later choking, the gal anxious to serve as his cock socket during some throating that caused her to laugh. There was minimal chemistry between them and he did not go down on her initially, the gal tossing his salad before energetically riding him vaginally in several positions. She continued with some oral exploits and more riding before the tiny facial of genetic juice hit her mug, the guy less interested in her than he should have been in my opinion.
Skyla Paige with Travis Knight
Scene Three: Raquel Diamond, the brunette wearing the bikini top on the upper left hand side of the front cover, was up next with Travis Knight, the couple playing on the couch as he found her pierced nipples a lot of fun to play with. There was too much camera movement here and the lighting was again less than optimal, Travis helping make up for it but his drive to explore her sweet little body. He fingered her and she enjoyed it enough to laugh out loud, Raquel throating him during her hummer and tossing his salad a bit for good measure. She was a screamer when it came to actively riding his cock, the vaginal positions working for her as she bounced on his dick. She did some intermittent oral between positions and seemed enthusiastic but hardly in an optimal setting, their personal chemistry more readily apparent even if not allowed to expand. The wad of population pudding landed on her abdomen from the pile driver position, Travis out of breath as he finished up.
Scene Four: Alexis Grace, the cute brunette wearing the black striped camisole on the lower left hand corner of the cover, was up next with moper William Wacket, her semi-polished moves showing professionalism even if it was clear she deserved better. After a brief introduction, his cock was beside her mouth for sucking, Alexis readily going for it despite his minimal size proving to be no challenge to her skill level. It was evident that she had seen plenty of cocks in her time and was left unimpressed by his, the guy getting rough with her (holding her nose when throat fucking her, choking her) as he discovered she was almost mocking him on the tan couch. She was an active rider but he did most of the talking, the guy at least leaving a decent sized load on her face when it was all over.
Scene Five: Skyla Paige, the girlish young hotty in a pink top seen on the left side (second from the top), was up last as she masturbated in a director's chair with a baby blue vibrator, pulling her panties to the side for penetration. She was clearly getting off when Travis Knight jumped in, Skyla pulling out his pecker to start blowing him. This was handled in POV fashion at times, the camera moving around too much but showing her off fairly well too. She was a modestly active rider of cock, the vaginal positions including some taste testing as in the other scenes, the lighting again faulty (there seemed to be too bright a light attached to the camera so the choice was either washing out the scene or too much grain; sucky choice in my opinion). The technical flaws aside, she showed a lot of potential and seemed to genuinely like him, milking his balls dry before he rubbed a nut of spunk out to her face.
Summary: Gina's Filthy Ho's 5 by directors Gina Lynn & Travis Knight for Gina Lynn Productions was as uneven as most titles with relatively new performers tend to be so I rated it as a Rent It, Gina's two solo scenes (one as a bonus) saving it from complete obscurity as far as I was concerned but not enough to merit picking up a copy unless you find it very cheap indeed (the technical issues weakening it too much). In short, Gina's Filthy Ho's 5 had a pleasing enough cast learning how to polish up their acts with the help of the directors here but unless you're totally into a few of them, you will be safer checking this one out before dropping hard earned cash, especially given how little of Gina Lynn is featured here, even then only in a couple of solo scenes.
