Cast: Carter Cruise, Bruce Venture, Samantha Rone, Danny Mountain, Keisha Grey, Bill Bailey, Aidra Fox, August Ames, Jillian Janson, Ramon Nomar
Length: 196:16 minutes
Date of Production: 2015
Extras: The best extra was the 7:04 minute long Behind the Scenes feature, some footage from the ladies being made up and other footage from the photoshoot for the cover, with a little more but only a little more from around the scenes. The only other extras were some trailers, a cumshot recap, and a photogallery with some web info.
Audio/Video Quality: Best New Starlets 2015 was presented in a crisp anamorphic widescreen color as released by director Dreadneck (another name for Derek Dozer) for Elegant Angel. The lighting was plentiful and the general camera work was good though there were times when it shook like something was up and the footage not edited out. Otherwise, the editing by “CD” (Craig Daze, formerly associated with Tom Byron productions) provided a very polished look and emulated the previous incarnations of the company lineup quite well. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases, the music not credited this time.
Body of Review: Dreadneck is a talented director at Elegant Angel that works elsewhere under the name Derek Dozer, the latest flick of his for the company that I have been handed to review called Best New Starlets 2015, a gonzo title with five scenes. The featured cover hotties included Keisha Grey, Carter Cruise, Aidra Fox, and August Ames, with Jillian Janson and Samantha Rone apparently on stand by or something. Going into the show, I felt a little cynical since some of these ladies have been in porn for over two years and shot well over 100 scenes, the series formerly seen as a predictive model (as in: “Who is going to be the biggest brand new ladies?” or “Who should we look out for this year that has yet to make a big splash?”) and now it seems changed to a descriptive model (who was big the last few years that entered the business), the distinction between the two quite a huge chasm. Still, as someone that has appreciated scenes from each and every one of them out of their dozens upon dozens each has already released at this writing, my concern was merely academic as the company appears to have delegated the role of “starmaker” to others in the industry, not a bad thing really, just limiting. The company website described the movie like this: “Elegant Angel presents "BEST NEW STARLETS 2015" Showcasing the hottest AVN award nominated Starlets including the Starlet of the Year Carter Cruise! 5 brand new scenes including a Carter Cruise anal scene!! Over 3 hours of the hottest new girls in porn! Starring Carter Cruise, Keisha Grey, Aidra Fox, August Ames, Jillian Janson and Samantha Rone. 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: Carter Cruise, the beautiful blond babe with amazing eyes that won just about every credible “best new starlet” award for her work from 2013 to 2014 including XCritic’s award all the way through the other venues, was up first in an interview with a tease montage edited into it, the gal wearing conservative white lingerie as she teased before being stuck with Bruce Venture as a sex partner. Her shapely body and alluring eyes always work for me, Bruce groping her in the living room while she leaned against a black leather couch for him to finger her ass and taste her a little, her bushy pubic hair and pierced nipples standing out. She knelt down to slob his knob, the turgid member given her full devotion as she throated him with ease and applied some hand to gland friction, her nut nuzzling and solid eye contact elevating her worth as she warmed him up for some active vaginal riding, her juicy pussy making slooshing noises as he worked it a bit. She over did the vocals a bit but was still the hottest ticket of the show, Bruce gobbling her gash and ass just as she gave more head at times, Carter just as active with his modest member during the anal penetration positions and ATM. It ended when he drained his balls on her face as she put it, Carter greedily swallowing some of his sperm and providing post coital head while rubbing his sweat genitals on her face.
Scene Two: Samantha Rone, cute 20 year old from Las Vegas who admitted to being in the industry since 2012, was up next as her interview in a red dress was blended in with her tease montage in brown bikini undies outside. She chatted about knowing she wouldn’t win but honored for the nomination, claiming her mouth was the reason she was given the nod (not exactly; her looks played a huge part as well as a few specific performances), the partially nude tease around the cars leading to her working with Danny Mountain as she projected her future career path. They were in a small bed and she tore open his pants while peeling off her top, Danny diddling her snatch over her panties before she inhaled his modest boner in a hand assisted hummer. While not one of the most genetically gifted lads in porn, Danny has enough to work with to satisfy a new gal, Samantha making the best of the situation with her sheer enthusiasm and energy as she throated him, Danny gobbling her gash and ass quickly before they began fucking vaginally. Her riding was largely passive here and there was more oral between the positions by both of them, her sexual talk a nice touch to add to her eye contact, the missionary position leading to her milking his balls dry of semen as her tight snatch clenched to push him over the edge and deliver the goods on her face.
Scene Three: Keisha Grey, a curvy 20 year old with a nice rack and delicious ass, was up next teasing in a skimpy red bikini, various camera tricks deployed to enhance her tease as the short interview was mixed in. She believed she was nominated for the award because of her big ass and tits, a fair assessment given her modest riding abilities in most scenes, her very hairy pussy and gap between her front teeth making her very recognizable as the scene began with her lounging in the lap of Bill Bailey. He peeled off her bikini as needed to give her some oral warming up, her nipples getting sucked and tweaked though he shook her thunder buns too. She sat on his lucky face to get more head and she energetically blew him, her mouth and hands working in unison as she sucked his balls and top portion of his raging erection before several passive vaginal positions led to a few impressive active positions (cowgirl variations but no anal as she repeatedly claimed to be totally into. He choked her and she rubbed her neatly trimmed cookie rapidly, some playful face slapping by the guy leading to her kneeling for him to glaze her face with his small wad of manly fluids, the sperm oozing down her face as she looked up at him.
Scene Four: Aidra Fox, a very cute 19 year old, and 20 year old hotty August Ames, both shown on the right half of the front cover, were up next in a lesbian scene, the tease by the pool mixed in with the interview, both of them claiming their nomination came from “hard work” more than anything else. The interviews were straight out of the book “Porn 101” in terms of how generic they were but the limited tease led to the ladies hooking up in their black lingerie on the silver patterned couch I see so often in Derek’s scenes, the director encouraging the ladies to go over the top on each other orally and with fingers, Aidra loving August’s bald beaver and August very much into reciprocation, the gals eventually sharing a long, double headed red jelly dildo on each other which gave a great shot of August’s terrific ass and Aidra’s desire to fuck the gal’s pussy. It was fun but given their respective sexual abilities, it seemed like more of a performance than any chemistry together and many will figure it a waste that such premium pussy was wasted on each other without a cock to drive them home. The two mounting each end of the dildo at the same time did not work very well given August was best positions for cowgirl and Aidra was in missionary, the over the top vocals reducing the replay value and strokability even though more toys came out for anal and a wand to excite them, making it too formulaic.
Scene Five: Jillian Janson, a fetching young lass with pretty eyes and a body built for speed over comfort, was up last with Ramon Nomar, the cutie wearing a flowing white robe to slowly tease with along with some red stripper shoes but no actual interview, perhaps that was why she was not shown at all on the front cover (though that wouldn’t explain Samantha’s absence). In any case, the relatively conservative look harbored a small landing strip of pubic hair, just a few wisps to see when she moved the material over for the camera, her limited curves greatly enhanced when she bent over or arched her back. The short tease then showed the couple kissing by the pool, their hands roaming freely on each other as their eyes met and maintained a bit of contact, some whispered instructions by Ramon helping guide her actions as she found her top pulled down and then his pants handled likewise for her opening volley of oral. The blowjob was mechanical and not exceptionally heated though they ended up in the house where Ramon poured on the charm to devour her snatch, rubbing his boner on her puffy pussy before boning her hard. He did most of the work until she worked her way into a reverse cowgirl position, Ramon fingering her ass though she never gave up the ass to his cock. Jillian diddled herself and became active during the ending doggy position when he told her to, her ass looking good with her legs spread wide and her back arched, Ramon pounding her until he nutted in the vicinity of her open mouth, Jillian claiming to swallow but precious little of the modest load landing anywhere near her mouth making that an easy claim indeed.
Summary: Best New Starlets 2015 by director Dreadneck for Elegant Angel had good technical values in the five scenes, too little tease, and too few extras, but a cast of ladies that truly were among the best “new” starlets coming into the industry between 2013 and 2014 so it earned a rating of Recommended. I suppose even if I were to just accept that each of the listed ladies made the cut from the AVN nominations that started almost a year ago (yes, next year’s award nominations are rushing toward us quickly friends), a few of the missing names were much higher rated than some of these by voters and fans alike, a release like this using all new starlets proposed to be on the next list or such a movie released shortly after the nominations were announced would’ve had a great deal more impact with me, not to mention wasting two of the ladies on a lesbian scene. But Carter Cruise, Keisha Grey, Aidra Fox and others here were all still very attractive and sort of new, I just expect more from trend setters like Elegant Angel as a company and industry leaders like new owner Jerry who has long had his finger on the pulse of consumer tastes so I’ll cross my fingers that next year’s version of Best New Starlets 2015 will be more timely. Regardless, give this one a look with all the nostalgia you need to make it work for your interpretation of things since you really get a decent amount of fuck for the buck, some of the cast still working on becoming skilled performers years after entering the business.
