Extras: There were some trailers to newer releases, some spam, and a short photogallery but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: Hall of Famers 2 was presented in the same anamorphic widescreen the scenes were originally shot by Robby D. for Digital Playground. Unlike some compilations on the market, this one cut right to the sex so each scene was edited to a degree, nothing crucial for the majority of rain coaters and no company watermark onscreen at all times but parts of the buildup missing. Each scene looked fairly similar with decent lighting, solid camera work, and respectable flesh tones but the scenes were shot quickly so your mileage may vary. The video bit rate varied considerably but the scenes looked much like I remember the originals otherwise if that helps your decision. The aural components were presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround but there was no headspace, special effects, or anything else that made me think the sound was rendered in anything except for monaural or basic stereo and then had a surround track encoded in post production. Regardless, I could hear most of the cast just fine, including those behind the camera when I paid attention, that always part of the fun of the series.
Body of Review: Robby D. has long been one of the most creative and talented directors in all of porn, his work for Vivid and Digital Playground including some really strong material over the years. Robby’s latest release from DP is a compilation of his older works called Hall of Famers 2, the single disc release included almost four hours of material, much of it strokable with a great cast in the eight scenes. I liked that the scenes were lengthier than previous compilations from the company of late, a few of the scenes standing out thanks to including hotties like Tera Patrick, Jesse Jane, and Gina Lynn, just to name a few. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that a condom was used for those still interested:
Scene One: Assassins: Jesse Jane, Bibi Jones, Manuel Ferrara: BiBi and Jesse visit the big guy as two young ladies selling the spiritual good life and is talked into a 3-way with him. Both girls enthusiastically get it on with each other and the guy with a lot of French kissing, pussy eating, and cock and pussy licking. There is some great pussy to mouth cock sucking and the two girls try their best to outfuck the other. The cumshot to both of their open mouths is great and concludes a very good scene. As they dress, BiBi walks around behind the bad guy and grabs his head and breaks his neck, then the two walk happily away! (review by Marine Hardcore)
Scene Two: Sexual Freak: Jesse Jane, Erik Everhard: Jesse Jane, once again in the dominating role, took care of the irrepressible Erik Everhard with her playing the hooker and him the wimpy client. She changed into a fetish corset and matching shoes, holding her paddle like she meant business. He serviced her orally as she tore off his clothing, working his dick in her mouth as though she wanted to snort ball snot in a matter of seconds. Thankfully, in porn circles he's known as a force of nature with excellent stamina so he held out against all odds to gain access to that perfect pussy of hers. Yet another aggressive ride by Jesse closed out the action when he blew a big load with her jerking it out manually.
Scene Three: Jack’s Playground 25: Tera Patrick, Aramas Feldina, Selrahc Renard: Tera Patrick, the well known superstar performer formerly associated with Digital Playground, was up in a scene long lost to time. Her partners were Aramas Feldina and Selrahc Renard (which was which, I don't know) and the scene started off with her on a road trip of sorts. Her fans will know this was done sometime between Tera Patrick's first anal scene and Tera Patrick's Vivid Comeback; probably close to when she made Tera Patrick's Dreamy Island Adventure but the fact of the matter is that she wasn't all that special in the scene. I'm not saying I'd have turned her down but compared to the more sexually robust Melanie, youthful Randy, or beautiful Rocky, the scene paled. That said, since Tera makes so few movies these days, any scene with her in it that hasn't already surfaced is an event all by itself (surprisingly, her newest work has been much better than expected though). It had the most prominent condoms of a modern porno (opting for the highly visible type rather than the flesh colored ones) but other than her exotic look, (in this scene at least) she's not even in the same league as Digital Playground's current crop of contract stars.
Scene Four: Mrs. Demeanor: Lisa Ann, Scott Nails: Lisa is the last girl up and she is a really hot babe. She has a gorgeous face and juicy melons. In this scene we find her having a serious discussion with some dude. He got in trouble and she told his dad about it. They talk about it and she mentions that she used to like to dance. Odd thing to say. Then they kiss and he fondles her tits. Next he eats her out and then fucks her doggie style. They continue with oral sex. Lisa sucks his cock with some nice face fucking action in the mix. The rest of their clothes come off and they fuck some more. Lisa looks great whether she is sucking or fucking. The scene ends with a facial. (review by Rob Randell)
Scene Five: Jack’s Big Tit Show 8: Gina Lynn, Scott Nails: Gina Lynn, the hotty starlet featured on the center of the front cover, was up last as she mugged for the camera that allowed her to shine in POV fashion, Scott Nails the lucky guy to get her scene. He walked in on her doing a solo shoot and offered his unique form of help, Gina explaining what was going on as he sort of listened to her. Gina's tight green shirt prevented him from paying too much attention to her as he manned the device, focusing on her pantiless crotch as she protested too little. Gina then teased some more and gave fleeting glimpses of her goodies, Scott dropping the camera to go down on her in short order. She provided the fake porn moans and juicy pussy as he provided the tongue action, her own blowjob skills a match for him any day of the week. That was when she began to ride his pecker hard, pumping herself on them and gyrating as able in some of the positions. They kept at it until he launched his load onto her chest, Gina licking it up as Scott smiled harmlessly.
Scene Six: Jack’s Playground 2: Belladonna, Evan Stone: Belladonna, back in her butch haircut days, was up next at the top of the stairs with her juicy ass sticking out as she waited with Evan Stone for the director to come home. This was early in the once popular series and despite the use of a condom, the couple tore into each other as though really into it. She practically inhaled his cock and got him rock hard in moments, the turgid pecker tearing into her pussy during a variety of active riding positions. In the end, she milked him dry of sperm, the dragon drained of semen courtesy of her wonderfully enthusiastic performance showing the world just how an expert does it.
Scene Seven: In Riley’s Panties: Jenna Haze, Manuel Ferrara: Jenna Haze, a lean little babe in need of cash, described her job as a webcam girl during an introduction, Manuel Ferrara sitting on the bed with her panties in his mouth while she played dress up for him. Her perky little ass enticed him and she knew all the right things to say, working him up to a lather using her soiled undies in his mouth and on his cock. This led to him eating her snatch and stuffing the panties in her mouth, the vaginal work leading to anal where Jenna rode just as aggressively. They shared the chemistry missing in the previous scenes, Jenna looking almost surreal in the high definition version of the scene given the artistic leaning of the director. The backdoor boning then resulted in his splooge being tossed all over her face with Jenna giving him some superior post coital head.
Scene Eight: Stoya: Sexy Hot: Stoya, Sasha Grey, Tommy Gunn: Stoya, this time in her cover outfit with Sasha Grey (on the left hand part of the duo there), ended the movie with some lesbian action and a tryst with studly Tommy Gunn. The ladies looked natural on the couch as they poked, prodded, kissed, rubbed, and diddled one another soundly; the erotic nature of the scene changing when he entered the picture. The neon pink fishnets and whispered comments, the pubes Sasha sported and the breathless pants were all charged as far as I was concerned. The use of toys even helped ready them for his cock, some choking with his belt and spanking elevating the dynamic a bit during the hummer. Then came the active vaginal screwing as he took turns with them, the taste testing and minor foot fetish action added to diversify the fun. The end came too soon though as he rubbed out a load of semen to their faces for sharing, the cumswapping a bit nasty but heated too.
Scene Nine: Jack’s POV 18: Sophia Santi, Manuel Ferrara: Sophia Santi, a drop dead gorgeous brunette hotty, was up next with the many times over male performer of the year, Manuel Ferrara, as he showed off his new car, new house, and new neighborhood, Sophia a friendly neighbor. Jack claimed she only knew his name from calling the cops on him half jokingly, Manuel proving she adored him as the once lesbian only babe jumped his bones. She wore skin tight black pants with an opening down the side, her amazing ass as delicious as ever. She blew him with some energy and minimal eye contact, Manuel gobbling her gash in return before some passionate vaginal penetrative positions on the old fashioned couch. Her landing strip of pubic hair looked cute but the flower of her labia was enticing to say the least, some taste testing punctuating the positions and his manly fluids plastering her all over.
Scene Ten: My Boss’s Daughter: Kayden Kross, Mick Blue: Kayden Kross, the attractive young lady featured on the front cover, was up first as the hotty daughter of the company boss, attracting editor Mick Blue on multiple levels. She was wearing a clinging dress and flashed him as she left his office, continually exciting him by bending over in the break room and then showing off some cleavage in a different outfit (white top and short skirt) while he sat in the boss' office (the boss played by the Mighty Evan Stone). This sets up the scenario to show that her seduction was over a period of time, the gal wearing a sexy blouse as she asked him if he was hungry, her titty falling out as she gave him an offer he couldn't refuse. She was propped up in his chair with her legs spread, telling him to "eat", his tongue working in and out of her pussy as she moaned in pleasure. She kept eye contact but the camera then started getting far too intimate, the close ups again softening the overall effect as she reciprocated orally, her hand working his pecker into her mouth. She maintained the eye contact and gazed up at him as she inhaled his balls, a few active vaginal positions showing her getting off with his dick. Despite the camera work, it was a very solid scene, Kayden thankfully letting loose as she glistened with sweat during the romp. She managed to kiss him and jerk him off with a blowjob to drain his nuts of genetic juice, savoring the taste before sending him on his way.
Scene Eleven: A Taste of Stoya: Stoya, James Deen: Stoya, playing an indecisive chick tied to a bed with James Deen as the dominant, was up next in a slightly kinkier scene. She was naked and he wanted her, using his riding crop and hand to leave some red marks as she enjoyed the rough stuff a little bit. Jimmy stuffed his face in her ass crack too, the look of anticipation she provided enough to elevate the scene above the less appealing scenes of the movie. They kissed and he released her, Stoya blowing him in return for the favor. The hummer was short and led to a largely passive vaginal ride, Stoya becoming a taker rather than giver over the course of the show. This then led to a bout of anal boning where she was even more reserved, his slaps not causing her to do much of anything other than provide a meek "ow" in return. I expected a lot more from these two having some idea of their past, Stoya's legs shaking near the end not coming across as an orgasm at all. She sucked him off to a climax by the end of the action though, the edit clipping it too quickly for my taste.
Summary: Hall of Famers 2 by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was a dedicated compilation of ten choppy scenes focusing on attractive women who are supposedly in the “Hall of Fame”, most of them not inducted at this writing nor likely to be any time soon so I rated this as a Rent It rating, my belief that unaltered scenes work best in their original context. In short, Hall of Famers 2 was advertised as having a plethora of babes from the Hall of Fame but without such a credential to the names of most of them, I felt obligated to rate the decent compilation a notch lower than it might have otherwise received but check it out for some fun.
