Cast: August Ames, Manuel Ferrara, Kalina Ryu, Tommy Pistol, Dylan Phoenix, James Deen, Abella Danger, Veruca James
Length: 157:12 minutes
Date of Production: 2015
Extras: There was a photogallery and some trailers, but the best extra by far was the 72:51 minute long Behind the Scenes feature. The BTS jumped around a bunch between the makeup sessions, the crew setting up, and as some of the scenes were shot or finishing up so be sure to check it out.
Audio/Video Quality: Dominations was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director James Deen for James Deen Productions. In stark contrast to many of James’ recent titles, the camera work here took an active stance and the editing did not allow for many lengthy moments without abrupt cuts, Danny Wylde credited as the cinematographer, Sigurd Jarlson as the AC/Gaffer, and Danny handling all post production such as editing. All the scenes had an abundance of grain, some of them far worse than others (like Dylan’s night scene), and the framing was often amateurish, the flesh tones either too saturated or simply not well lit enough, but it was a marked improvement to having James set the camera down for much of the show. There were some interesting choices made with regard to camera work too, all the ladies hot enough to cover for many issues arising, but at least there was no watermark. The aural components were decently handled for such a project though, the vocals easily heard, the stereo not offering any obvious effects as such but not needed either. That said, I tried listening through headphones to check if it might offer anything worthy and it was pretty generic that way too, the visual problems most notable when observed on a big screen television compared to a far smaller computer screen though the audio not much different either way.
Body of Review: James Deen is one of the “nest generation” performer turned directors, his works at James Deen Productions reflecting a willingness to try new things. His latest in for review is called Dominations, a set of vignettes where the ladies find how being put in their place does not mean they won’t get off. With super cutie Abella Danger, wonderful August Ames, sexy Veruca James, Dylan Phoenix, and Kalina Ryu, there was ample reason to think this production would stand out from some of the directors recent titles, especially for enthusiasts of BDSM. The company website described the movie like this: “Power and domination is the theme of five artfully-shot vignettes each featuring an astounding sexual tryst! Beautiful Veruca is a take-charge brunette who duct-tapes Tommy to the wall to show him who's boss before taking him deep in her pussy and ass! Hard as nails businessman Manuel finds the perfect way to close a deal and show his dominance over desperate August - by jamming his cock inside her any way he can! Pretty Abella finds herself in a wild experiment with her master who pounds her pussy then demands she survive by only eating his cum! Horny blonde Dylan blackmails James into hot banging, but James has more than his hard cock waiting for her! Then, overbearing Tommy finds himself a gorgeous slave in Kalina, who tries to stay strong despite her own orgasms in a wild master/slave scenario!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: August Ames, the busty babe from Canada featured on the lower left corner of the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara, his character of a mob loan shark quite funny next to meek James trying to get a better deal. Curvy August was Manuel’s servant, wearing black stockings and an apron as she did what she was told to do, her juicy ass and robust boobs easy on the eyes even if her facial acne appeared worse than ever (and according to a dermatologist friend, easy to correct). She slobbed his knob and bent over to get vaginally pounded, even serving as a human desk for James to sign the agreement on her back as Manuel porked her before he left. August pushed back to meet Manuel’s thrusts when expected to, her bald beaver inviting his turgid rod all the way into her as they moved to the gray couch. He diddled her and smacked her fleshier spots from time to time too but on balance she was an active rider and he gobbled gash more than she tossed his salad, their oral antics secondary to the penetrative positions they showed such an acuity towards. In the end, her hand to gland friction drained his dragon of sperm as she rubbed him against her tits, the gal taking his facial without hesitation.
Scene Two: Kalina Ryu, a popular Asian cutie, was up next in a slinky blue dress, the gal remaining largely passive to the licking and playfulness of Tommy Pistol in the house. The sat on the furniture near the piano James obtained for free awhile back, Tommy sucking her fingers to her toes with little change in expression from Kalina who positioned as he insisted but showed so little response to his rimming her or eating her out that it did nothing to stimulate me, even her throating handled so mechanically that it provided a negative view of role playing, the gal crying at times making it worse. Her sense of revulsion culminated in the way she tried to choke him near the end of the scene, at least she more actively rode toward the end before she milked his balls dry of semen for the facial he gave her.
Scene Three: Dylan Phoenix, the busty blond newcomer featured on the entire right side of the front cover, was up next as she came into the bedroom via a sliding glass door to the outside. She quietly made her way in the house in her cover outfit and searched the house for James Deen. He was hiding on the gray couch and showed no response when she sat next to him, James claiming “”because it’s wrong” without filling in the context as she simply climbed onto his lap to ride his boner. It was far too dark to see any detail with clarity but she did seem to have a nice ass, her legs spread to wrap around him as she impaled herself vaginally. She gave a mean hummer too but the replay value lacked for me and the picture looked substandard courtesy of the lack of lighting, even her apparent swallowing of his manly fluids not helping.
Scene Four: Abella Danger, a hotty with a glorious ass and full set of amazing sexual skills, was up next on a blue couch with James Deen, her colorful top sheer enough to show her nipples through the fabric and her flowery skirt barely covering her skimpy panties riding up her ass. He kissed her as his hand slapped her pussy, his fingers soon massaging her labia as she was reaching out to caress his pants clad cock. She sucked him off aggressively as he held her hair, some drool still left on her chin as she upgraded to a hand assisted hummer throating him to the bone. The tryst unleashing his seed for her to lick up before a reset showed her in white bikini undies ready for a second round. She peeled her thong out of the spot in her ass crack that it was nestled so deeply in and presented herself for him, James taking her in doggy style with the camera alternating between a close up shot of her face and another of her ass where he was porking her pussy until he supposedly came on the floor for her to lick up, no footage shown of any manly fluids exiting his pecker this time, the scene continuing to show them yet again fucking under different lighting conditions doing missionary and oral, the possibility of another fake load continuing the scene as she was shown begging for food (and the circles under her eyes getting increasingly dark to simulate her weakening condition). In the last session, she laid on the floor as he beat off his flaccid rod, Abella inching her way toward him to try for more protein though he pushed her away to fuck her passive pussy on the floor until making her beg for it until she passed out.
Scene Five: Veruca James, a perky brunette with a lean body and big smile, was up last in a very short scene where she pranced about the house in pink and black garb, sniffing the tie of Tommy Pistol as he stood helpless duct taped to the wall (as seen on the upper left of the front cover). His face was not covered and his cock was left free but otherwise the improvised spiderweb held him fast as he sobbed, asking her how he got there. She relished placing light kisses on his face and neck, blindfolding him with the tie as she went down on him. Her blowjob and subsequent penetration positions were limited by the fact he was tied up so well but it had a slight erotic appeal, his cock in her ass displayed moderately well given the conditions as she spread her cheeks to actively ride him. She then dropped down to blow him once more, the hand assisted hummer directed by him including her squeezing his cock so her double handed meat beater hand job got him to drizzle out a small load into her mouth for swallowing, her post coital head modest before she took the tie off his eyes.
Summary: Dominations by director James Deen for James Deen Productions was definitely a walk on the weird side, each of the five vignettes offering something completely different both in terms of themes as well as production values, from the bulk of porn on the market today. Whether that is a good thing for your tastes and libido will really depend on you but for it it earned a rating of Rent It at best, the limitations of the technical values alone reducing any replay value too much to suggest dropping enough to own it. I’ll give credit where due though in saying that Dominations used Abella Danger, August Ames, Veruca James, Dylan Phoenix, and Kalina Ryu in ways I doubt they ever thought they would get paid for, artistically shot porn of the kind that caters to a small audience in my experience so check it out first.
