Audio/Video Quality: Girls of Red Light District: Sunny Lane was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame by Red Light District using a variety of directors who shot the scenes for their original releases. The lighting was almost always strong and the cameras capably manned, some compositional mishaps and minor grain appearing at times. There were a lot of close up shots in the various scenes, almost as if it were a required selling point the editors were told to leave in, the video bitrate hovering in the 2.8 Mbps range using the usual MPEG-2 codec for this standard definition compilation of previously released scenes. The fleshtones were generally accurate and while there was still a need for polishing up most of the scenes, the overall look of them was pretty decent, though the light watermark in the lower right hand corner was smaller than usual. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English, the 192 Kbps aural bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate about average for an adult production. I could most of the vocals and the music was rarely a factor here, the experience not elevating the visual aspects particularly well but serving much like most gonzo productions expect the audio too in providing an array of loud screams and moans (with some dirty talk).
Body of Review: Red Light District was founded years ago by a handful of performer-turned-directors when they obtained financing to start a new type of gonzo production company, catering specifically to the rain coater crowd with a lot of straightforward smut one could appreciate. Along the way, there were some bumps in the road and the inevitable decline noticed by many but ultimately, they still shoot some solid smut and are now offering a series of compilations to help pay the bills. The latest of these coming my way was Girls of Red Light District: Sunny Lane, a series of five scenes lasting slightly over two hours starring sparkling Sunny Lane, was provided. As one of the cutest ladies in porn, Sunny certainly thrilled her fans even after many performances thanks to her attitude as much as that fine ass and rack of hers but her appeal goes beyond physical; her joyful attitude making her stand head and shoulders above many of her peers. The company website described the compilation like this: "She's bashful and brash. She's soft and bendy. She looks as sweet and innocent as Shirley Temple but is as horny and vivacious as the class whore. Sunny Lane has one of the most delicious and bitable asses in porn and she loves to show it off while taking in a big cock. For over 3 hours of ass slapping good times, Sunny Lane is the perfect American Pie. She's sweet, warm, tastes great and she loves to fuck too!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Cum Stained Casting Couch 2: Sunny Lane, wearing a red dress and hamming it up big time, was first as she slinked around the living room with her youthful body during a strip tease show. She was wearing a matching thong and giving an enthusiastic show to Manuel Ferrara, making it a lap dance as she continued to grind her ass onto his clothed cock. She masturbated as she did this, encouraging his hands to feel her up, breaking away to finish undressing which led to her blowing him. It was a playful hummer, Sunny rubbing her tits on his cock along the way and giggling, soon actively riding him vaginally before he ate her out briefly. This led to additional positions of pussy pounding sex, Sunny into the action even if I couldn't discern her getting off as such, Manuel diddling her until she pissed all over his hand and Sunny reciprocating by jerking him off with both hands to her mouth as she knelt before him. His wad of genetic juice flew all over her face, the streams of population pudding eliciting a smile from the gal as she provided some post coital head.
Scene Two: She Bangs: Sunny Lane, on the scene of another porn set to uncover the second set of books, is caught by muscular Tommy Gunn in the bedroom. To keep him happy, she drops to her knees and sucks away on him with ever more vigor, showing her gradual learning curve in the oral arts. This worked well enough for her that she disrobed her purple satin outfit to present her full entourage of heavenly delights to him, though again she only did vaginal with him. It was a playful blowjob that got him rock hard and he tore into her doggy style before they tried several other positions. She was loud and proud about the fun she was having with him, ending it when he popped on her abdomen for some oral cleaning.
Scene Three: Sex Pix: Sunny Lane, looking better here than in any other scene (largely due to the reverse order of the scenes), was up last as she and Kurt Lockwood engaged in more traditional porn sex. By that, I mean there were no circus acts or extreme forms of kink, just a good solid boning after each got some oral from the other. It was a pleasing scene on a few levels, not least of which was the part of me that likes to see a gal enjoy herself with a warm glow and chemistry befitting a couple that like each other rather than a set of porn performers trying to outdo one another. It ended with a facial where much of the goo went into her mouth and nicely closed out the sexual portion of the movie.
Scene Four: Fresh New Faces 6: After showing off her sexy body, Sunny joins Manny in bed and spreads her legs for a deep licking followed by some missionary. There's a sexy spooning, and after a quick 69, she spreads her legs wide again for more missionary. Sunny hops on top for some cowgirl that results in Sunny taking a shot in her mouth. Immediately afterward, Sunny saddles up again for reverse cowgirl before some sexy "face down, ass up" sex in the bed until Manny drops another load on Sunny's face to end the scene. Frankly, this scene caught me by surprise. I really wasn't expecting much, but Sunny, with her nice, plump body and cute face, delivered. Once she found herself "face down, ass up", I could definitely understand how she earned two shots from Manny AND the disc cover. Hot scene. (review by Michael Vega)
Scene Five: Darkside: Sunny Lane, Kelly Wells, Holly Wellin, Alex Rox, and Ethan Cage, were in the following scene where they played test subjects in a scene set in college where the gals went from zero to sixty all thanks to a device William Margold invented (and part of the basis for the feature aspect of the movie). I've seen the gals perform better elsewhere but they still seemed to enjoy boning, sucking, and cum swapping like seasoned professionals in search of a bonus. The camera lost focus a bit at times here too but at least there was swallowing to make up for it.
Summary: Girls of Red Light District: Sunny Lane greatly benefitted by the inclusion of so many wonderful scenes starring hotty Sunny Lane, all of them from the vaults with nothing new to speak of. In that sense, I really enjoyed the show despite whatever technical limitations some scenes had but the lack of where the scenes came from on the cover or company website weakened it for me as a consumer advocate (after all, if you knew you already had the scenes, you might not buy it but we all like to know, yes?). In any case, I've seen a few compilations starring ladies like Sunny over the last few years and she has earned every single one of them but as some of them provide over twice as much material for the same lower price, I felt obligated to rate this one as a modest Recommended rather than as highly as it could have been with the addition of new material, some extras, or even maybe an introduction by the lady describing anecdotes for the scenes. In short, Girls of Red Light District: Sunny Lane shows that the company is exploring all options in order to compete against rivals these days, the focal point of using their best talent certainly a time tested one that I couldn't argue with so check this one out.
