Dates of Production: 6/4/2010 (box cover); (2/26/2011, 12/7/2010, 6/4/2010, 4/11/2011, 9/16/2011: the individual scenes as listed in the ending credits, in order of appearance)
Extras: The only real extras were the photogallery and some trailers, some spam and “positions menu” material included for those that care (a “special offer” link included too). I hated the forced commercials though, skipping them with my remote as needed.
Audio/Video Quality: Brand New Faces #35 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment using the standard definition MPEG-2 codec in 480 resolution. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in 1080/60 high definition a bit ago, though presented in the SD format. The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play as the lengthy scenes gave them enough freedom to explore their sexuality. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible, the director editing the raw footage in a hands-off manner (which worked for me). The fleshtones were accurate too and the DVD mastering was well done though the company watermark will be bothersome to some out there. The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 256 Kbps with a 48 kHz sampling rate) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. The aural qualities of the movie appeared to offer some separation and increased dynamic range, the vocals easily heard and mixed in with the ambient noises.

Body of Review: B. Skow has been the lead director at Vivid Entertainment. The result had been better showcasing of performers in lengthier scenes that provide more fuck for the buck than anything else in the company’s history, the company dispensing with contracts stars (for the most part) not altering this approach. The decision to branch out into web-to-DVD titles has also allowed the company to utilize his talents for a specialty series centering on all newcomers, not a single one having been in porn prior to the production date listed (the company even providing a written guarantee to that effect that few have questioned, those being proven wrong in their accusations). The latest volume of the series is Brand New Faces #35 and while the scenes have seasoned on the company website, I could not remember a single one of the ladies having been listed in a production with an earlier shooting date, the end result being fans should be happy with it. This has been the only newcomer series hitting the double digits that I find consistently worth picking up, the show providing almost four hours of original material for your viewing pleasure. The ladies this time included Kristin Summers, Selena Marie, Riley Reid, Vicky Vixen, and Jesel Owens; the selling point this time being the “Curvy” nature of the cast. Here’s a very brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Selena Marie, a rather busty and thick little Latina spitfire, was up first with Jerry. She was happy go lucky and clearly enjoying the attention given her, the tease, solo and then some active vaginal sex leading to her having anal. She then did some anal, the claim that she never did anal before this being a bit difficult to swallow but she was a total slut here, titty fucking Jerry and using dirty talk to elevate the quality of the action. It ended when he popped a nut of genetic juice all over her open mouth and chest, Selena cleaning him off orally with a big smile. The company website described the scene like this: “Selena is a spicy, curvy 36F Latina that has always had big tits and the craving to have thick cocks cumming in between them. Jerry attacks her rack before she lubes his tool and titty fucks him with a vengeance. Selena is horny as fuck as Jerry nails her in mish and doggy before she abuses his loin in reverse cowgirl with intense slams. Despite having sex, Selena’s still a virgin. Watch her get her anal cherry popped!” 2/26/2011
Scene Two: Riley Reid, an attractive brunette with a bit of a paunch, was up next as the all natural lady followed the formula. She had a shaven snatch and big ass, appearing a bit mechanical until warmed up by Jerry in bed. Her hand to gland abilities were matched by his, the oral by both of them leading to some modestly active vaginal plowing before he rubbed a wad of population pudding out to her pussy and ass in doggy. The lack of personal chemistry weakened the scene but she showed some potential. The website suggested this of the gal: “Riley is a 20 year-old cutie that drove to us from Florida and had her first real orgasm barely a year earlier. She loves to ride rod because that’s how she graduated to the big leagues of fucking. After coating Jerry’s knob he attacked her shaved slit with his quick tongue and strong finger thrusts. He popped her pink constantly in cowgirl, missionary and doggie before blasting cream on her ass and pussy.” 12/7/2010
Scene Three: Jesel Owens, a think girl next door type with a nice rack and plump ass, was up next with Jerry (he was in all the scenes except for one). She was outgoing and positive during the scene, her interview and tease solo scene proving her to have a casual appreciation of her body that really worked for me. The two of them worked well together and gave some decent head, the vaginal boning including a lot of taste testing though her riding was typically too passive for me. The scene ended when he beat out a round of spunk to her mouth, Jesel draining his balls dry with some post coital head. The website said this of the matter: “Jesel is a curvy 19 year-old Latina with big juicy 34D naturals and a plump inviting ass. Her tight bald bush and sexy mouth took dick like a cock-hungry nympho. She loves cowgirl where her jugs bounce and bobble freely. In doggie her hot spot was pounded fiercely by Jerry as she shouted in Spanish. She didn't want cum in her mouth at first but she guzzled his protein like a thirsty man in the desert.” 6/4/2010
Scene Four: Vicky Vixen, a thick down-home gal with golden tresses, was up next as she nervously followed the formula. Skow comforted her as he interviewed her and at a ripe old age of 27, she was not the typical fuck bunny of the show, her partner being Johnny Sins (instead of Jerry thankfully). I liked her and the extra pounds gave her additional allure, the gal warming up nicely before the actual sex took place. She was a very active vaginal rider and loved taste testing, even doing anal as she got off with the guy. The scene ended when he jerked off his splooge to her abdomen, the look of satisfaction on her face priceless. The website described it like this: “Vicky is a curvy Kate Hudson-lookalike cutie from San Diego that loves to fuck. She's so horny that she furiously plays with her kitty and cums before any hardcore hammering starts. After inhaling Johnny Sins' pipe he rams her in doggy until she rides rod fierce. Her continuing shouts to fuck her harder make the scene even hotter. Check out what she allows Johnny to do to her that's rare here at BNF. Enjoy!” 4/11/2011
Scene Five: Kristin Summers, the fetching young lass featured on the front cover, was up last but hardly least as she proved why women from Texas are so well suited for porn. She had pretty eyes and a friendly attitude, the El Paso native clearly no stranger to sexual misconduct (just new to it on camera). She was partnered up with Jerry and made good use of her boobs and shaven snatch, her act decidedly more passive during the anal penetration positions compared to the vaginal. The ending blast of semen glazed her face well enough though, sealing her eyes shut as she commented to the director. The website said this of the scene: “This voluptuous legal teenager hails from the great state of Texas. She made her way to the Golden State to start her porn adventure. Kristin is eager to learn as well as show off talents of her own. Watch as she gets comfortable with Jerry showing her the ins-and-outs of hard core porn.” 9/16/2011
Summary: Brand New Faces #35 by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment earned a rating of Recommended or better given the quantity of footage on top of the quality of newcomer, my appreciation for fleshier than average gals nicely satisfied (though anal fans will appreciate that three of the scenes included backdoor action too). For me at least, the idea that Skow could cultivate newcomers into providing such typically solid performances is indicative of his skill as a director so Brand New Faces #35 certainly earned a place in my collection, even if none of them were true standout babes as in some of the previous volumes of the web-to-DVD series. Give this one a look to see just why so many people into truly new faces (most of the cast haven’t made any more scenes in fact, except one with a handful of additional scenes from what I gather) enjoy it so much.
