Gracie Glam and Angelina Valentine with Manuel

Date of Production: 2011

Extras: The first disc had a photogallery, cumshot recap, and five trailers as well as a list of the second disc’s contents, effectively containing the entire listed “movie” contents. The second disc started out with three bonus scenes; 114:10 minutes of sexual action from Jessica Girl, Virginee, Olga Winter, Sidney, Nick Lang, Choky Ice, Patricia Parisch, and Kate. The next best extra was the 32:39 minutes of Behind the Scenes footage, extra sex and interviews populating the disc though it proved the scenes were streamed live the way the ladies were on the internet communicating with folks. The second disc also had a photogallery, a cumshot compilation, and trailers for those who care.

Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: Cruel Media’s Starstruck was presented in anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 widescreen as shot in by director Raul Cristian for Evil Angel in the MPEG-2 codec used for standard definition releases (including 480 resolution). There was a lot of strong lighting that helped maximize the quality of the picture, the camera still showing a lot of extra movement thanks to Raul’s usual jumpy method of catching the action. The editing was on the minimalist side but frankly, that seemed to help the flow of the sexual trysts in certain cases. The bitrate was decent so there were few obvious compression artifacts, the aliasing minimal and given the sheer amount of quality footage on display, most fans will be quite happy; Raul allowing the ladies to provide some heated raw energy even if his attempts to capture it were mixed. The bitrate hovered all over the place this time, higher than usual with most of the movie in the 5.1 Mbps range, but varying across the board depending on the scene. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (at 192 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering that really didn't use any separation in terms of the vocals (there was some potential to do so here too). The dynamic range was also kind of generic, an area that seemed slightly better than previous efforts and an area that Raul could easily improve to make best use of the great many home theaters in the hands of porn fans everywhere.

Kristina Rose with Nacho

Body of Review: Raul Cristian is a European director at Evil Angel, his works definitely more about performers being pushed to their limits than romantic sexual encounters involving chemistry. Cruel Media’s Starstruck, a double disc title sent to me for review, is his latest to cross my path, the casting of babes like Julia Ann, Gracie Glam, Kristina Rose, and others certain to please fans of his hardcore style. As long as it was, the show only had four formal scenes (with three bonus scenes tossed in too) but this again allowed the ladies to get the full treatment from Manuel Ferrara and Nacho Vidal. Going into the show, I knew there would be a lot to like with the kind of fuck for the buck you just don’t see much these days outside of Evil Angel. For the record, the scenes comprising the movie amounted to about half the stated length of the show (per the cover advertising), the three “bonus scenes” fleshing it out substantially.

Abelia with Mugur

The website described the movie like this: “Cruel Media's magnate of perversion, director Raul Cristian, brings us a smorgasbord of his favorite hard-core scenarios: Starstruck consists of seven classically Cruel scenes, both vignettes and gonzo sessions, with a variety of action to satisfy the prurient gourmand. Innocent American cutie Gracie Glam gets seduced by a horny couple (huge-breasted, tattooed Angelina Valentine and fat-dicked Manuel Ferrara) who teach the young girl how to catch a man by improving her slut skills. Wavy-haired, spunky blonde Jessie Andrews is a typical American girl selling magazine subscriptions when hot MILF Julia Ann and her husband show this cute teen what men really want in a passionate three-way. Sweet, petite California girl Kristina Rose is totally dominated by big, brutish Nacho Vidal and his giant cock. Nacho abuses the little beauty with his bare feet; viciously fucks her throat and tiny pussy; and leaves a load of sperm all over Kristina's pretty face. Blonde whore Jessica Girl and sexy Virginee lick each other's ass and masturbate together, then share Mugur's big cock with wet face-fucking, ass-to-mouth reaming and a nasty cum-swapping finish. Gorgeous brunettes Queenie and Sidney tease the public by walking down the street in outrageously skimpy outfits, then enjoy a slutty threesome with Nick Lang and a double-dong toy; the girls share a gooey load of Nick's semen. Finally, skinny blonde Kate and dark-haired Patricia Parisch take on a pair of fellows who bang the lovely girls and double-penetrate Patricia before dumping semen into the girls' open mouths. Sexual stardom comes in many tempting flavors.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Virginee and Jessica Girl

Scene One: Gracie Glam and Angelina Valentine, the curvy hotties featured on the right side of the front cover, were up first as they prepared to take on studly Manuel Ferrara. Gracie was cast as the innocent gal here with Angelina and Manuel seducing her into a heated sexual tryst, Angelina already falling out of her street clothing when Manuel came visiting. The vignette showed the older pair getting Gracie out of her clothes and into something a bit more comfortable, Manuel going down on her sweet pussy before Angelina got a taste (while Manuel ate Angelina’s ass). The ladies double teamed his pecker orally and started taking turns actively riding it vaginally, the modest chemistry between them enhanced by their enthusiastic performances. I liked Angelina’s ass cheeks shaking during her boning, Gracie rimming her at the same time, but Gracie was a world class fuck here too. The ladies then used a Fleshlight on him, some rougher sex included before Manuel beat off a round of genetic juice to Angelina’s mouth for cumswapping.

Queenie and Sidney

Scene Two: Julia Ann, Jessie Andrews, and Manuel Ferrara were up next as youthful Jessie sold magazines door to door (the ladies featured on the upper left hand corner of the front cover). She convinced Manuel that he should place an order using her massaging techniques on his lap, Julia walking in on them in the living room as his bulge grew substantially. Julia was game for some action too, kissing her husband as Jessie slobbed his knob with a smile. All of them did some oral though, the ladies doing each other but concentrating on his cock before Julia upped the ante to bounce on his rod. Jessie than got in on that as well, the continued theme of sharing shown in detail though the only anal here was oral related or concerning a finger. Julia even tossed Manuel’s salad with Jessie copying her, both ladies kneeling before him to receive his wealth of population pudding facially.

Kate and Patricia Parisch

Scene Three: Kristina Rose, the ever popular brunette babe featured on the lower left hand corner of the front cover, was up next with Nacho Vidal in the house. I needn’t outline the many reasons why Kristina is among the sexiest young ladies in porn these days but suffice it to say that Nacho wanted some of that sweet ass of hers and got some. She had on some skimpy lingerie and a fishnet top, Nacho entering the scene early on to eat her ass and begin planking her. Kristina reacted favorably as she spread her ass cheeks wide apart, her light begging for more driving Nacho ever deeper inside of her. He slapped her around and she slobbed his knob aggressively, throating him and leaving streamers all over as she gave him the messy hummer he desired. It was a very active vaginal ride, her perfect ass begging to be plucked, fucked, and set free but he refrained here, the quality of her pussy enough to milk his balls dry of spunk when he painted her tongue by hand.

Scene Four: Abelia, a fetching Romanian brunette, was up last as she was interviewed in her short animal print dress on the deck by Clara. As the gal started to masturbate by the pool, Mugur walked up in a garish sombrero, the inevitable pairing taking place. He fingered and ate her at length, the mechanical tryst a bit weaker than the sex that had taken place previously. She admittedly had a good body but going through the motions just doesn’t do it for me, her oral and active riding skills enough to save the scene for me though not truly enhance it (her moaning was so generic that I wanted to turn off the sound). In any case, they continued until he rubbed out a nut onto her open mouth and chest, Abelia claiming to be happy (with Clara hoping to see her soon).

Summary: Cruel Media’s Starstruck by director Raul Cristian for Evil Angel started out very nicely but ran out of steam because of the last scene (and reliance of the bonus scenes to fill out the running time advertised) so I rated it as Recommended. Every babe in the movie was fuckable and worth dropping loads of seed all over but the average follower of the director might be surprised at the lack of anal in the initial scenes, the movie still worth picking up for fans of the cast and as spank bank material for those wanting something just edgy enough (but not too much so). In short, Cruel Media’s Starstruck had wonderfully sexy ladies such as Julia Ann, Gracie Glam, Kristina Rose, and others having some fun so check it out and pay attention to the solid selection of extras including nearly two hours of material.
