Audio/Video Quality: Superstar Showdown 4: Alexis Texas Vs. Sarah Vandella was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Anton Slayer for Vouyer Media. The standard definition project was handled in the MPEG-2 codec, sported a 4.3 Mbps video bitrate, and was generally well lit to limit the grain and other video issues. The composition of the scenes tended to favor the ladies but some framing issues and too many close ups impacted the visual elements but given the quality of the female cast members, it was not a bad shoot at all. There was a light company watermark at times in the lower right hand corner too. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 256 Kbps aural bitrate, 48 kHz sampling rate, and sounded reasonably clear. There was limited dynamic range and while the performers could be heard, they were not as crisp as some of the better gonzo efforts on the market.

Body of Review: Anton Slayer has been directing porn for years now, his most recent works being for Vouyer Media. His latest release making it my way was Superstar Showdown 4: Alexis Texas Vs. Sarah Vandella, a contest between the two porn performers with notable looks and skills, each garnering significant praise from the reviewers at Xcritic among other places. The formula of the show went like this, each gal would masturbate, do another female, give a guy a handjob, blow a guy, and then engage in hardcore sexual activities with a man; a panel of porn judges eventually tallying the points to award one of them as the better of the two. Kirsten Price hosted the show and while she really didn’t do much of anything, it was nice to see her in her clothing for a change. The company website described the movie like this: “Vouyer Media and Reality Blue Media are pleased to announce that Alexis Texas, the sexy AVN, XRCO and F.A.M.E. award winning co-star of the original Superstar Showdown, has returned to the very franchise she helped launch. The all-new Superstar Showdown: Texas Vs. Vandella is now in stores. An erotic and fast-paced celebration of today's most iconic adult performers, the fourth volume of this sizzling series pairs the shapely Ms. Texas up with gorgeous fan favorite Sarah Vandella. Blonde ambition of a radically different stripe rules the day as these two ladies get together for an erotic showcase that throws caution to the wind. Series creator A. Slayer orchestrates the American Idol-style festivities with his usual finesse, guiding Alexis and Sarah through a series of sensual scenarios designed to showcase their richly diverse talents. From sexy solo interludes to explosive oral, girl/girl and boy/girl couplings, the ladies explore their distinctive sexuality with hedonistic abandon. Joining Texas and Vandella in this hardcore showcase is a supporting cast comprised of such in-demand performers as AVN and Nightmoves award winners Sunny Lane and Sammie Rhodes. Also appearing are Chris Johnson, Bill Bailey, Marco Rivera, Anthony Rosano and Jordan Ash. And glamorous Kirsten Price once again brings her trademark wit to her role as the project's host, while Michelle Maylene and mainstream crossover celebrity Mary Carey shine as the show's judges. The ultimate in high-concept erotic entertainment, this exciting new release is available from Reality Blue Media and distributed exclusively by Vouyer Media. Superstar Showdown: Texas Vs. Vandella. Blonde ambition takes on a whole new meaning in this sizzling exercise in reality-based erotica from Reality Blue Media. It's time for a reality check!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Sarah Vandella, in her cover red outfit, was up first to masturbate, her glistening snatch wrapping around a glass dildo (her fingering of her asshole an added treat).
Scene Two: Alexis Texas, wearing her cover white & black outfit, was up next in a matching solo scene complete with extra tease before she used fingers, panties, and glass dildo on her pussy.
Scene Three: Sarah Vandella, now up in a black camisole and matching accessories, used lotion to jerk off a mope (Chris Johnson I believe), on a table. Her hand to gland action was swell, the gal applying a two hand meat beater before he unleashed a load of genetic juice in her mouth for swallowing.
Scene Four: Alexis Texas, in a sheer black outfit, was up next as she tried to top the last handjob, spitting a lot but using some fine eye contact to liven it up with Bill Bailey, I believe. Her dirty talk enhanced the moment, some titty rubbing helping to drain his wad of population pudding from his balls.

Scene Five: Sarah Vandella, this time wearing a purple and black bikini outfit, was up next showing her knob slobbing skills with a lot of near face sitting on Bill Bailey. He fucked her face and she showed some no hands abilities as well as working him all the way down her throat, eventually using both hands on his pecker to drain his round of spunk into her mouth.
Scene Six: Alexis Texas, in dark blue bikini undies, was up next as she rubbed all over Marco Rivera, inhaling his boner aggressively in a less instructional manner than Sarah had when it was her turn. She even used a vibrator on his balls as she cranked up the heat, the sloppy noises elevating it nicely as she finished him off to get a semen facial.
Sammie Rhodes and Sarah Vandella
Scene Seven: Sarah Vandella and blond Sammie Rhodes were up next on the platform, the lesbian loving including substantial licking and fingering. Sarah was into the dirty talk here, a purple vibrator and wand toy used in addition to the fingers as each gave the other pleasure.
Scene Eight: Alexis Texas and curvy babe Sunny Lane were up next as the two major babes went crazy going at one another. They kissed a lot and were otherwise into exploring all their holes, Sunny getting into it more realistically and some face sitting elevating the scene more than the wand toy did.

Scene Nine: Sarah Vandella, practically falling out of her black bikini undies, led Anthony Rosano to the platform where the judges could see her orally working him over, her hands caressing him lightly and her throat used to full effect. She was very active at vaginally riding his rod in various positions, providing ample dirty talk and encouraging him to pump away at her snatch before beating off a small load of splooge to her mouth.
Scene Ten: Alexis Texas, wearing some neon pink bikini undies, was up next as she shook her ass in the face of lucky moper Jordan Ash as he pulled her panties down. He then stuffed his face into her ass and ate her out, various forms of vaginal penetration showing her actively riding at her best and giving intermittent oral as able. She impaled herself when on top of him and he tossed off a round of sperm on her sweet ass to finish up, the gal winning the competition in the end.
Summary: Superstar Showdown 4: Alexis Texas Vs. Sarah Vandella by director Anton Slayer for Vouyer Media was fun and earned a solid rating of Recommended, better if you are a big fan of the two leads; both curvy hotties with ample proof of their sexual prowess. The mechanical manner in which a formula was largely followed dropped it down a notch for me but I’d suggest that the judges jump in at the end or at very least the two performers go at each other to see who was really the winner of the day. In short, Superstar Showdown 4: Alexis Texas Vs. Sarah Vandella was a competition where everyone won, the heated trysts including a lot of basic sex acts common to porn, again my preference being for the judges to get in on the action if they were as turned on as they claimed. The extras added some value too, the entire package of action quite strokable but the two bonus scenes pretty cool to add in.
