Cheater (SD & Blu-ray)
click for BTS
Director: Robby D.
Cast: Alexis Texas, Tommy Gunn, Cali Lakai, Scott Nails, Charley Chase, Manuel Ferrara, Jenna Lovely, Mick Blue, Selena Rose
Length: 114:08 minutes
Alexis Texas with Tommy Gunn
Date of Production: 6/11/2010
Extras: The extras kind of sucked balls on both versions, the best of the batch being the 13:42 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. As far as BTS fun was concerned, this was a minimal effort using some montage of photoshoots and clips of the cast but Jamal Johnson really did little to get anything worthwhile and I can see why some fans (and critics) are suggesting the company is missing the boat when it comes to extras (though seeing lots of Selena Rose was pretty cool here and the humor was cute). There was also a slide show (with a photogallery on the SD version) and some trailers.

Audio/Video Quality: Cheater was presented in 1.78:1 widescreen using a 1080p resolution with the high definition AVC encoding as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground in Blu-ray while the 480 resolution, MPEG-2 coded SD version seemed a bit pale by comparison. The results here were mixed though, some editing slips and camera deployment issues subtracting points from some of the better scenes. In any case, the SD version of the movie had some compression artifacts and what appeared to be edge enhancement, but this one upgraded the visual elements really well, the efforts of the company to show the world why they are the leader in Blu-ray porn. The video bitrate varied significantly but when I spot checked it, the numbers typically kept around the 17.1 Mbps mark in 1080p resolution (lots better than the SD version which seemed to hover around the 6.4 Mbps mark), often going higher or somewhat lower for those who care but the editing by Keyser Foze struck me as occasionally rushed. The audio was presented in a post-production added 5.1 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate and 448 Kbps bitrate, none of the vocals showing any separation.
Alexis Texas with Scott Nails
Body of Review: Robby D. has been one of the most important discoveries for Digital Playground, the man becoming their primary director for years now. Left to his own devices, Robby favors gonzo over the fast forward fodder of features, his duties requiring him to suck it up at times to provide the couples oriented fans out there something to chew on too. The latest release of his sent me is called Cheater (SD & Blu-ray), the advertised highlight of the movie in either format being Selena Rose (formerly known as "Sasha Bleu") in her first feature. In terms of the sexual trysts though, curvy Alexis Texas was the headliner here, the bodacious babe sexually interacting with Tommy Gunn and Scott Nails in her two scenes, a variety of others such as Charley Chase and Cali Lakai meriting a nod as well. If you're looking for a short story about interoffice romance, you might just be happy with this one, especially given the visual upgrade shown in the high definition Blu-ray version. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Charley Chase with Manuel Ferrara
Scene One: Alexis Texas, a sexy blond wearing minimal makeup, was up first in the bedroom as studly Tommy Gunn caressed her curvy figure. He snacked on her crack and her pink bikini underwear offered scant resistance, her thong spreading her sweet ass cheeks nicely apart. She bent over the bed as she grabbed her ass, Tommy going down on her before she offered him some modest head, the couple quickly moving forward into some active vaginal positions. Alexis diddled herself as he pounded her pussy, some intermittent head provided his cock between positions. While not her best work in months, she looked good with less makeup on, the camera too close to take full advantage of her looks though I felt she was having fun with the liaison. By the time he rubbed out a nut of genetic juice on her ass, she was glistening with sweat and ready to kiss him one more time.
Jenna Lovely with Mick Blue
Scene Two: Cali Lakai, an attractive newcomer, was up next as she gave Scott Nails a blowjob while he watched Alexis online. Cali toyed with his head as her hand held the base of his shaft, using her tongue before Scott reciprocated on her. He savored the taste of her snatch and she moaned as though she liked it, the gal keeping eye contact when he switched to vaginally plowing her pink pussy. She gave him some more head in return and soon became an active vaginal rider, impaling herself on his rod to the best of her ability. Scott then ended it by jerking out a small load of population pudding to her waiting mouth as she knelt before him, her smile suggesting she enjoyed herself even if she didn't get off.

Scene Three: Alexis Texas, wearing a yellow tank top and tight blue jeans, was up next on the couch with Scott Nails when he blackmailed her into a tryst to keep quiet about her internet activities. He ate her as she bent over and fed her his finger, Alexis licking her own nipple before providing a hand assisted hummer. Alexis took her time to enhance the moment, rubbing his pecker on her tit before slobbing his knob more aggressively. She was more consistently active during this vaginal series of rides too, Alexis giving some dirty talk until he beat off to her ass crack, shoving it back into her snatch for a few more pumps and Alexis licking him clean.
Scene Four: Charley Chase, a very sexy brunette with big tits hanging out of her black dress, was up next as she joined Manuel Ferrara admiring Alexis online. Scott had clued them in but Manuel wanted to score a real life gal, Charley having just the right assets for him to plunder. She was all juicy from the show and went into the unisex bathroom to rub one out on company time, Manuel soon finding her mouth a safe haven as she gave him a glory hole hummer. While she inhaled his cock lovingly, she became more and more into it, she began making sloppy noises, the two hooking up beside the door for her to service more enthusiastically. She wore her stripper shoes and thong with some baubles as jewelry, Manuel giving her some pleasure in return for all he had received. She stretched out on the sink and he ate her sweaty form out, the two kissing before a few vaginal positions at strategic locations around the room led to her getting a facial.
Scene Five: Jenna Lovely, an attractive blond wearing skimpy street clothes, was up next as she sat down beside Mick Blue on a big couch to make out after they watched some of Alexis' internet show. They kissed and pawed each other, showing some degree of energy and passion as he sucked her nipples and gobbled her cookie. Jenna then orally attacked his pecker with fervor, coming up for air as needed until they both actively bumped uglies together. She was loud and proud of her porking skills, the cowgirl variations showing her off better than the doggy that led to his large facial of spunk.
Scene Six: Selena Rose, the lean Latina featured on the front cover, was up last with Tommy Gunn, his girlfriend exposed. They kissed while standing in his office and while her "first feature role" was nothing major in terms of dialogue, she gracefully took to blowing him like a seasoned champion on her knees. She kept eye contact and jerked him off as she tongue polished his dick, making it sloppy with some streamers until he ate her out. Selena was then a very passive rider during the vaginal portion of the tryst, yelling as if it elevated the heat (it did not) as he plugged her on the desk. She was better on top of his lap but the reliance on close-up shots greatly weakened the effect, Tommy taking minimal time to jerk out a modest wad of semen before the credits rolled.
Summary: Cheater by director Robby D. for Digital Playground lacked as a feature but had some heated pairings thanks to Alexis Texas, Charley Chase, Cali Lakai, and Jenna Lovely. As Selena Rose's first feature, it was hardly worthy of additional attention but she definitely has the cute factor working in her favor so who knows how well that will translate into bigger projects. The extras were again minimal and the sexual exploits here were decidedly built for the couples crowd but it merited a rating of light Recommended if you are into the cast of ladies working here, Alexis standing out as the sexual lead thanks to her ongoing role. In short then, Cheater (SD & Blu-ray) might not boost Selena Rose into the stratosphere of Jesse Jane anytime soon but as a smaller vehicle to introduce her in her first feature role (third scene for the company too), I can see why some company supporters are hailing her as the next big Latina to leave her mark at the company so give it a look and see for yourself what the deal is regarding her.
