Cast: Adriana Chechik, Lexington Steele, August Ames, Prince Yahshua, Jada Stevens, Rico Strong, Jillian Janson, Jon Jon
Length: 117:17 minutes
Dates of Production: 1/12/2014 (cover); 1/12/2015 (credits)
Extras: The best extra was a 10:51 minute long Behind the Scenes interviews (about half of it with Adriana). There was also a pop shot recap, and a slideshow.
Audio/Video Quality: Brunettes Go Black was presented in a crisp, anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Mason for her line of hardcore scenes called “Hard X” as distributed by Mile High Distribution. Mason has been highly acclaimed for how good the visuals of her movies look and in terms of the quantity of light, the evenness of how the scenes were lit, and the color tones of said lighting; I rarely have a complaint because Mason is taking care of business. In terms of the framing and editing (by Royson Hall) decisions, they are generally on par with other mid level companies in terms of providing a good amount of polishing up that balances capturing the raw energy of a sex scene with the desire to make it look the very best. The vocals were decent and suited the visual aspects of the show, the lack of a continuous company watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen definitely helped minimize distractions. While showing up as being in Dolby Digital stereo on my equipment, the aural components were like almost all other gonzo releases of late with no separation between the channels and sounded as if captured by the microphone built into the camera.
Body of Review: Mason is a multi-award winning director whose works are now distributed by Mile High Distribution. An older title came in for review called Brunettes Go Black, a set of four scenes starring attractive young brunette white ladies who all did black male performers; a spinoff of last year’s “Blondes Go Black” that I liked so much. As an established fan of interracial action in adult entertainment, I have seen more emphasis on blonds over the years but no shortage of women with darker hair in such scenes, the listed cast not exactly strangers to men of color. Still, with babes like cover hotty August Ames, ever popular Jada Stevens, smoking hot Adriana Chechik, and perky Jillian Janson engaging men such as Lex or Prince, there was at least some potential to live up to their past scenes. As an added bonus for anal aficionados, two of the scenes included anal as well though frankly, the vaginal sex was better in almost all positions.
The back cover described the movie like this: “AVN Award winning best new studio, Hard X, is proud to present "Brunettes Go Black featuring four stunning brunette bombshells, taking on big black rods. Featuring Adriana Chechik in an unrelenting anal scene with Lexington Steele, as well as cover girl sensation August Ames, in a rare interracial coupling. Watch as big booty megastar Jada Stevens takes an intense anal pounding, while the gorgeous Jillian Janson rounds out the cast with a hardcore encounter with Jon Jon. "Brunettes Go Black is shot in 1080p and directed by the award winning Mason. Enjoy!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Adriana Chechik, a skinny brunette with brilliant eyes and a very appealing face, was up first with the infamous Lexington Steele, the movie actually starting with the gal talking about having anal sex with the man of steele. Rather than a proper tease, the interview was followed by Lex caressing her and sucking her tits, the man handing her his genetic gift to stroke as he admired her from behind. Adriana had a neatly trimmed patch of pubic hair and she smiled as she knelt down to blow him, the gal nuzzling his nuts and applying some hand to gland friction as she tried to suck more than half his turgid pecker. Her eye contact was solid and she gave him a lot of sensual looks as she pushed her limits orally, this leading to her vaginally mounting him for some fairly active riding. Why he skipped gobbling her gash is a mystery to me, her cookie looked insanely delicious as did her ass, but the vaginal sex soon gave way to the anal, Lex doing most of the work as she started some obnoxiously loud screaming. Adriana taste tested him from time to time as Lex pulled out of her, the gal rubbing herself as Lex fucked her mouth. It looked like his admittedly large cock tearing up her ass caused Adriana some pain but she was willing to look past that for the pleasure she also incurred, Lex taking her on the white couch in doggy knocking it home in her pussy before he doused her in a facial of semen, her tight snatch milking his balls dry before some post coital head.
Scene Two: August Ames, the lovely young lady from the front cover, was up next teasing in a sparkling pink bikini, her curvier and fleshier body observed outside before she hooked up with lucky Prince Yahshua. The opening tease left the vocals out for some generic music as the couple pawed each other, Prince soon stuffing his face in her yummy ass to pleasure her, his tongue working over her bald beaver too before he dipped his wick in her very moist pussy. August kept wonderful eye contact with him and her boobs shook nicely as they fucked, the missionary vaginal leading to her intensely slobbing his knob like she was on fire. She did get pornishly loud at times but not enough to really bother me, Prince doing most of the work riding though August clearly enjoyed all that he did, her riding abilities increasing as she warmed up and her oral remaining at a high level, her multi-colored hair looking much lighter in the scene than on the cover (the pink and blond high lights far more pronounced, her tan line as well). In any case, it was a decent scene with an attractive lady having fun, her snatch draining his dragon dry of sperm for him to glaze her face, August finishing him off orally.
Scene Three: Jada Stevens, a popular booty queen for years now, was up next in a colorful bikini out by the pool on a sunny day. She looked great shaking her ass that was covered in a combination of sweat, oil, and water, a prolonged session on a stepping machine watching her mesmerizing ass edited into her on the white couch inside where Rico Strong joined her. He spanked her generous ass and licked her labia as she bent over and continued shaking her money maker, the couple connecting with some verbal banter before some active anal riding. Jada rubbed herself and gave good eye contact, throwing herself into the intermittent oral when they took breaks from fucking. This “back to the basics” approach worked better here than in the other scenes too, the gal on her stomach getting so tight for him that he lost control and soon nutted on her face with a huge wad of manly juices.
Scene Four: Jillian Janson, a fetching young lass with a skinny body but beautiful eyes, was up last in a black outfit that hugged her tight as she teased outside, her hair looking quite blond as Jon Jon joined her. He pawed the blond beauty and her itty bitty titties, the couple peeling down her outfit to reveal a landing strip of pubic hair. Jon is a lot like Rico in that he appeals to a smaller percent of the viewing public, her mohawk and wealth of tattoos making him distinctive if nothing else. Jillian’s ass was flat until she bent over, Jon savoring it as he spread her cheeks while exploring her youthful figure. Jillian then dropped down to slob his knob with some energy, applying her hand to limit how much of him could go into her mouth as she concentrated her efforts on the head as she gave very solid eye contact. The hand assisted hummer led to some passive vaginal riding until well into the scene, the gal rubbing herself as she impaled her pussy on his cock. The longer they fucked, the puffier her pussy became, her oral skills awarding her a mouth of semen before the credits took over.
Summary: Brunettes Go Black by director Mason for Mile High Distribution under their “Hard X” label had some replay value and strokability so I rated the movie as Recommended. The cast of appealing ladies included sultry August Ames, Curvy Jada Stevens, pretty Adriana Chechik, and slutty blond Jillian Janson having fun with genetically gifted black males, a few of them top tier guys like Prince Yahshua or Lexington Steele. In short then, Brunettes Go Black had decent technical values and a fine cast, the extras on the light side but Mason was able to pull all the elements together in such a way to make it work better than the many of IR titles on the market so if you haven’t done so already, check this one out.
