Cast: Teal Conrad, Mr. Pete, Kennedy Leigh, Manuel Ferrara, Casey Calvert, Erik Everhard, Presley Hart, Ramon Nomar, Cindy Starfall, Karlo Karrera
Length: 204:21 minutes
Date of Production: 12/14/2014
Extras: With such a lengthy running time, I really didn’t expect many extras so the 8:55 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, the pop shot recap from the scenes, the trailers, and photogallery & website were okay at best.
Audio/Video Quality: Best New Starlets 2014 was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Asa Akira for Elegant Angel. The camera work by Toni Ribas was not as fluid as it could have been, nor was the single camera approach the best way to go with this kind of a shoot, the editing by R. Patrick helping to polish up the rough edges as best as possible. The framing was not always flattering but the flesh tones of the ladies did look accurate in most cases, the tease montages handled well enough though they were not long enough for my tastes. There was no continuous company watermark on the screen at all times so that should appeal to many out there, the overall visual elements coming across as decent but not exceptional. The aural components were pretty basic too, the vocals during the opening interviews very crisp and easy to hear while the vocals during the actual sexual trysts sometimes hollow with echo to them, the music added in very lightly in most cases to make it come across as somewhat more generic than previous volumes in the series.
Body of Review: Asa Akira has been an extremely popular performer for years now, the impressive young lady trying to take her career to the next level by directing for Elegant Angel. A few months ago, she took over one of the company flagship titles with Best New Starlets 2014, a showcase for female performers the company believes will be the next big names in the industry. In previous years, company titles like this one have brought a great degree of attention to the talent, sort of making it a self fulfilling prophecy to a degree, this time using an attractive cast of hotties that has been around awhile longer than usual. Cindy Starfall, surprisingly not featured on the front cover, was the only diversity this time, the Xcritic blogger completely established well before this movie came out. Kennedy Leigh was another who had already been showcased and up for numerous awards, Presley Hart around since 2011, Teal Conrad & Casey Calvert certainly appealing pieces of eye candy too. Which of these, if any, will carry on the company tradition of “owing it all to their performance” here, you ask? Probably none but each gave a satisfactory showing all the same, the predictive value of the franchise in previous years the result of some behind the scenes chicanery more than picking random babes out of the air. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Teal Conrad, the all natural and lean bodied young lady seen on the upper right portion of the group shot, was up first, the 20 year old having been in the jizz biz for about a year and a half when this was shot. Once the interview was over, the montage continued more actively, Mr. Pete seen slowly working his way up Teal’s legs to kiss and otherwise coax her into slobbing his knob. Her oral included some hand to gland friction and throating, the camera angle sucking at showing just how far she took him inside her mouth, some decent eye contact leading to an abrupt edit where Pete was boning her like he owned her bald beaver. She remained largely passive as a vaginal rider, her shaven slit quite moist by the time she hopped off to suck him clean of her own juices. He roughed her up a bit and she started fingering her perfect pucker as he boned her, this sparking her to put more effort into the ride until Pete took over the fingering. This did excite her to an orgasm or at least near enough to one, Pete taking her in doggy where her asshole massaging helped Pete’s thrusting pecker to keep her interested until the expected wad of genetic juice plastered her open mouth, some oral on the turgid cock leading me to think she swallowed the small nut of baby batter. The company website described the scene like this: “Teal Conrad gets herself so worked up, squirming in bed with her hand on her pussy for the solo intro of this video, that she almost doesn't notice Mr. Pete until he's licking his way up her leg to her pussy. Teal's one of our picks for Best New Starlets 2014, and you're about to spend 35 hardcore minutes finding out why! This brunette sex goddess sucks Pete's cock the second it's drained... she wants more!”
Scene Two: Kennedy Leigh, a 19 year old Minnesotan blond seen on the upper left of the picture on the front cover, was up next as she provided some background of her productive career before hooking up with Manuel Ferrara. Kennedy had beautiful eyes and a fleshy enough body to appreciate from all angles, her past work a bit hit or miss for me. Her black banded top went with her hairy pussy (by the way, the carpet did not match the drapes), Manuel gobbling her gash and savoring her boobs with his unshaven face. The playful romp included her sucking about half his pecker and licking his balls, the brief hummer leading him to pull her up on the couch to vaginally plow. Her labia were already red and puffy when he started drilling her, his hand diddling her as she put forth exaggerated vocals and let him do most of the work. They did have a little intensity together at times though, her eye contact with him spotty but enough to show she was being pushed to her limits. Even on top of him Kennedys riding was passive until he slapped her around a bit, this leading to her grinding on his cock in a much hotter part of the scene, the gal reverting to form when not actively pushed and Manuel able to get her to let loose the juice with his hand inside of her. The vaginal positions eventually led to his glazing Kennedy’s head and upper torso with population pudding, her oral attentiveness showing a great deal of untapped potential as she cleaned him off thoroughly. The company website described the scene like this: “Kennedy Leigh shows off her sensual side - and her amazing body - under the sun, to start this entry for Best New Starlets 2014. After Kennedy gets done basking in the sun, you get to bask in her sensuality along with Manuel Ferrara, who's here to give this sexy brunette the fucking she deserves. Wouldn't you love to paint Kennedy's breathless, naughty smile with a cumshot of your own?”
Scene Three: Casey Calvert, a seductive 23 year old that has formally been in porn for over a year when this was shot (having been a BDSM model much longer), was up next with powerhouse pounder Erik Everhard. Casey has a sultry look to her that really works in most cases, her body of work showing a lot of potential as some of my peers have commented upon. The late bloomer was shown in black lingerie when she was finally paired up with Erik, her attire lasting mere seconds as he tossed her down to the couch to gobble her gash and taste her juices to her immediate appreciation. She then throated him as his growing erection responded to her oral talents, Erik fingering her as she slobbed his knob so successfully. He then positioned her in doggy to hammer away at her pussy, her tits shaking a mile a minute as she enjoyed his thrusts but remained largely passive to his ministrations. When she mounted him on top of his lap she became more active at riding, pumping herself to get every inch of his rod into her dripping snatch as possible. Her bald beaver looking puffy by the midway point, she then let Erik slowly fuck her in the ass, his hand diddling her clitoris to help her focus on the pleasure portion of the slightly painful penetration move. He had such an impact on her that she pissing a hearty stream without his hand assisting, the fountain driving him deeper inside her ass with a break for him to eat her out before he quenched her thirst for spunk with a direct deposit to her open mouth for swallowing. The company website described the scene like this: “Casey Calvert starts out rolling around in the pure buff, showing off every lickable inch from her eyes down to her shaved pussy, to let you know it's okay if you want to fuck her. We won't ruin the way it all goes down, but get ready to see why Casey was one of our no-brainer picks for Best New Starlets 2014, as she gets drilled in both her naughty, horny holes in this 42 minute scene!”
Scene Four: Presley Hart, the 24 year old seen laying down on the front cover, was another lean fuck bunny with pretty eyes, the self described “wild child” working with Ramon Nomar here. Presley’s montage looked better than the others to me, her eye contact and the sheer variety of images no hurting one bit though her personal intensity seemed to be the driving factor. She ended up on a tan couch beside Ramon, her bald beaver making her look younger and her desire to jerk him off leading to some early vaginal penetration before they did oral. She was an active rider while on top and her yummy ass looked great as she impaled herself on his admittedly modest erection. She then climbed off to blow him, the hand assisted hummer enhanced by her enthusiasm and eye contact though his own oral efforts seemed forced. Once she smoked his meat pipe once more, the couple went back to vaginal boning, Presley warming up before resuming her occasionally active riding stance as her natural tits bounced up and down nicely. Just before he was going to bust a nut, he screamed it to her and had her n her knees to receive the splooge, Presley downing the ball batter without a thought though the ending did not linger like some of the others did. The company website described the scene like this: “Presley Hart is the kind of brunette who can't be quiet, or still, or behave in any way, shape or form - but if you're asking for our choices of Best New Starlets 2014, this squirming hot mess will fuck your brains out like you've never had it. Watch Ramon struggle to get the upper hand... it's no good, Presley is buck-wild, laying the pussy on him so well, she's on top time and time again!”
Scene Five: Cindy Starfall, the almost 24 year old Asian hotty blogger at Xcritic not seen on the cover, was up last with both Karlo Karrera and Erik Everhard, the gal a chatterbox as she commented on her sexual evolution. The tease montage led to Cindy masturbating in her black bikini undies, the guys jumping all over her as Erik positioned between her legs to eat her through her panties and she reached over to inhale Karlo orally. Erik then took her in doggy vaginal as she tried to get Karlo fully erect, some rough slapping exciting her as she turned around to blow Erik while Karlo attempted to emulate the better male in the scene. Cindy showed a great deal more energy and enthusiasm for Erik pretty much for the entire scene, Karlo trying to keep up with the couple as the oral and vaginal pounding continued. She was slapped, choked, and positioned to do her best, the gal getting more active as the scene continued though it never led to anal or a DP, her shaven snatch sufficing for the day. Karlo gave up the first nut of spooge and Erik drained his dragon second, Cindy swallowing some of the spew that did not glaze her face and upper torso. The company website described the scene like this: “Cindy Starfall is tiny. Try to remember that, as you spend more and more time learning what this little nympho is like, in our 49 minute 2 on 1 epic from Best New Starlets 2014. Cindy is tiny, but this horny little Asian mouse roars for more the harder you fuck her. Just the expressions on her face in the first fifteen minutes of this video will get some people off on their Asian fetishes alone, but if you keep watching, she'll really blow your mind...”
Summary: Best New Starlets 2014 by director Asa Akira for Elegant Angel was not a bad fuck flick, four of the five ladies looking and sounding very much like one another. The performances in the scenes were similarly generic even if the eye candy factor was high, the movie certainly no competition for other company flagship titles released of late no matter what the fanboys may claim in their masturbatory fantasies so I rated this as Recommended, the newcomer angle a bit weak given the sheer body of work the ladies had already participated in along with their largely passive riding skills. In short, Best New Starlets 2014 may never be seriously considered as strong as earlier volumes in the series but with ladies like Cindy Starfall, Casey Calvert, Teal Conrad, Kennedy Leigh, and Presley Hart, there should be enough momentum to keep the series going in future, hopefully better, volumes so give it a look.
