Audio/Video Quality: Sex Appeal was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Grazer for Elegant Angel using the MPEG-2 codec employed by standard definition releases with a 480i resolution. The lighting was strong, eliminating the shadows and grain like most of Mick's works in the past, almost as if Mick's works this time (under his director alias) was adjusted to provide things the way Elegant Angel does them these days. The grain was minimal and I got the impression that Mick spent some time to use the camera angles to enhance the looks of the nicely made up ladies, their tits always the focal point of the action. The bitrate tended to hover around the mid 4.1 Mbps area most of the time I paid any attention to it, the opening tease sessions looking like they were much lower resolution and frame rate for some reason. The composition of the scenes enhanced the look of the ladies, providing each with some nod to their relative strengths, the editing by Bruce Carter cleaning up the footage nicely into a series of finely honed clips. The sole audio track was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English using a 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. The music was provided by Mybeatshop and Elegant Angel Productions, offering little different than what the company has in the past but suitable while the tease montages played out.
Body of Review: Grazer is the directing name of Mick Blue when he shoots for Elegant Angel, his first few attempts showing something of an upgrade over many of his previous works. The likable fellow is generally considered one of the better male performers and his work behind the camera has been developing favorably for some time, resulting in a movie like Sex Appeal. This gonzo release has five lengthy scenes full of tease and hardcore action, Mick jumping into every scene to sample the goods offered by hotties such as Chanel Preston, Asa Akira, Jynx Maze and others. While I still favor a couple of other directors working for Elegant, “Grazer” seems to be gaining ground too, part of his appeal being in how much he adores the ladies (not to mention the way they react to him as well). It was interesting to see that his wife, Diana Doll, was the makeup artist here too, perhaps both of them planning their exit strategy by expanding their skill set. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Asa Akira, the lean Asian piece of fine ass on the front cover, was up first as she teased in the cover outfit, a slow tempo song allowing her to project a sensual mood playing in the background. The luxurious house was a nice setting, the tease leading to a short interview where she described how much she was looking forward to working with Mick Blue and Toni Ribas (she tweeted it months ago if I recall correctly). She gave a little solo show before slobbing the knob of Toni, Mick joining them to take turns with her (initially in POV fashion). The guys hammered her pussy and mouth, Asa kicking it into overdrive when pushed a bit (some spanking and choking at her command helping her). She even fingered her own ass but it was clear that overdoing it or not, Asa got off a few times, draining them dry with a load of genetic juice going to her crotch than another to her mouth. The company website described the scene like this: “As far as Asa Akira's concerned, it's all about the sticky stuff. In this long 43 minute scene, she gets Mic Blue and Toni Ribas as horny as she can, and then gives them whatever they want... all so she can swallow some cum! Everybody knows the longer it takes to fuck a girl who's doing it right, the harder you bust your nut... well, Asa keeps it going this entire runtime, and after it all her pubes and face are coated in ball sauce!”
Scene Two: Andy San Dimas, a lean and youthful brunette wearing a skimpy pink & black bikini, was up next as she followed the formula before working with Mick Blue. Andy has always been too skinny for my tastes but increasingly solid as a porn actress in parodies, her sexual talents acknowledged by all those in the know. While this was a more straightforward scene than the last, her and Mick managed to do some very heated oral and vaginal penetration positions, her active riding skills put to the test a bit at times before she prevailed with awesome eye contact and a mouthful of spunk beaten out by Mick. The company website described the scene like this: “Thin brunette Andy San Dimas gets her mouth and pussy filled to the brim with cock in this 35 minute hardcore scene. She and Mick Blue definitely enjoy each other for this one - Andy is in a ball-sucking mood, and Mick is in the mood to make Andy's skinny body squirm! Just when you think Andy can't take any more fucking, Mick flips her over and bangs her in still another position!”
Scene Three: Chanel Preston, a very attractive brunette wearing a small red & white bikini, was up next as she serviced both Toni and Mick Blue, her tease an up tempo number that worked for her nice moves. The flexible lass was looking for cock and knew where to go, the gal blindfolded in a dining room chair as the men warmed her up with caresses and oral. She showed she was prepared for some hardcore plowing by doing excellent vaginal and taste testing, driven with a need for seed unlike most of her peers. She was an active rider who gave a lot of eye contact, her shaven snatch allowing the world to see just how perfect her labia looked under the lighting. They ended it by throating her, unleashing their wads of semen into her mouth and the surrounding area (before she power sucked them clean). The company website described the scene like this: “Wet-mouthed brunette Chanel Preston is spreading the love between her legs in this 42 minute hardcore scene. She's got two cocks to play with, she couldn't be happier about it! Toni Ribas and Mick Blue are here to fill her fine little body to the brim as she cums and cums. This scene has just about everything, from ass to mouth, to watching Chanel finger herself while she's getting fucked!”
Scene Four: Amy Brooke, a skinny tattooed girl with a slutty demeanor to her, was up next as she serviced both James Deen and Mick Blue, once the tease was over. She shook her moneymaker well enough, giving me the impression that she might have been a stripper for a period of time, showing her anal plug during her interview. Amy is a new breed of performer that likes pushing herself sexually, doing everything with limited reservations to gain a name for herself. There was a substantial amount of POV footage here too, Mick directing what she would happily do though she appeared to enjoy power riding the cock really hard on her own volition. The guys drilled all three holes too, the DP showing Amy into anal sex more than just a pecker in her pooter, spreading her legs wide to make it easier for them to pound away on. There was some choking and such along the way, taking one nut on her entire torso before sucking off Mick for a facial. The company website described the scene like this: “Skinny little bad girl Amy Brooke gets a double helping of deep dicking in this 39 minute hardcore scene. James Dean and Mick Blue both want a crack at this bubbly blonde and her bad-ass butt, so she opens up extra wide and lets them both in! The result is an anal and double penetration romp that includes standing-position DP and a lot of ass to mouth blowjobs. This cumshot craving cutie definitely loves her work!”
Scene Five: Jynx Maze, a fantastic newcomer with an appeal beyond just having a sexy attitude and smoking hot body, was up last; the gal earning the spot by way of her flaming hot scene. She was dressed in classic black lingerie, parading around the house with a lot of jewelry on during her tease performance. Her sweet ass was showcased a lot by the camera and she seemed giddy at the prospect of getting both Mick Blue and Toni Ribas inside of her. She coyly teased them at first but she was ripe for the plucking, fingering her own ass before Toni started hammering away at it. Then came some oral and the use of a wand vibrator, Jynx getting off in several ways (including being choked) as the men pursued all of her assets. The scene ended with a little Jynx magic, Toni busting out all over her ass crack and Mick then taking her as a sloppy second, force feeding her face. The company website described the scene like this: “Tattooed, talented, and tasty as hell - once you've seen her, you will want a piece of brunette Latina Jynx Maze. The male talents get more than a little, in this 44 minute hardcore anal scene. You might get a laugh from how little she needs to do, in order to get the dude interested - even to the point of aggression. After she struts and stares for you, we cut to her sitting - and then getting anally stretched by hand and cock, for a long runtime!”
Summary: Sex Appeal by director Grazer for Elegant Angel was surprisingly strong, the amount of fuck for the buck overcoming the relative lack of quality extras, the strokability offering so much replay value, and the casting superior to many other companies that just don’t get it so I rated this one as Highly Recommended. As far as I was concerned, the battle for the top spot was between Chanel Preston, Jynx Maze, and Asa Akira but the others were quite fuckable too, making this a winner all around. In short, Sex Appeal had three and a half hours of superior fodder for your internal spank bank, the quality of the technical matters nearly as strong as the active ladies strutting their stuff so heatedly.
