Extras: There was a short photogallery and web access but that was all.
Audio/Video Quality: The Best of Control was presented in the same aspect ratio 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 Dolby Digital 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.
Body of Review: Robby D. was an accomplished director at Digital Playground, the company relying heavily on his prowess with a camera to stand out. His latest release from DP is another compilation of his older works called the The Best of Control, a variety of scenes starring a wealth of popular ladies in scenes taken from volumes of the “Control” series shot between 2004 and 2009. The single disc release included reasonably strokable scenes with a good cast in the scenes, the scenes not always the best the series had to offer but generally pretty fun. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Control 2: Alektra Blue, Chris Charming: Alektra Blue, a lean brunette with incredible eyes and a thin all natural figure, was up in the last full scene after some heated play in a flamboyant skirt and arm warmers. I prefer gals a bit thicker but I wouldn't kick her out of bed unless she wanted to do it on the floor, roof, or someplace else. The extensive tease led to her sitting down on Chris Charming's lap, then pulling down his pants to get a gander at his one eyed wonder worm for sucking. Her skill with a meat pipe is not quite legendary but is still in the top percentiles from my experience. The active blowjob gave way to anal, where she tried to be as active as possible, given the size of his girth and the tiny rosebud she calls her asshole. As she warmed up, she took him increasingly deeper, doing some ATM (without a wipe folks) for those who enjoy it. The rhythm was best when she was on top but he seemed to be okay this time as he spanked and tapped that ass in several other positions. It ended when he jerked out his large load into her mouth for swallowing down and proved to be another scene with solid replay value.
Scene Two: Control 4: Sasha Grey, Scott Nails, Jerry: Sasha Grey, another all natural cutie, wore a metallic mask and collar as she knelt down to service Jerry and Scott Nails in the living room. She alternated between them orally, jerking one off while blowing the other, letting the slobber freely flow from her mouth as a result. As time flew by (it was already 47 minutes into the movie), Scott took the initiative to "fuck that tight little cunt" (her words) as she continued her oral assault on Jerry. The mask was taken off and she got even more into the action, an effect of Scott's work with other ladies as well. I wasn't expecting as much enthusiasm as Brianna showed but she sure made a valiant attempt at providing it, possessing a bit less skill but certainly the right attitude to prove her many fans comments about her being a star in the making. Let's face it; most people I've discussed it with, prefer raw energy and passion over technical skill, though she had a fair mix of all of those factors. She was too passive during the anal but her vocals and physiological responses to the sex acts were largely off the hook, with a short DP, ATM, and PTM as just a few of the acronyms on display here. She swallowed their loads and it was nearly as good as the first scene of the flick.
Scene Three: Control 5: Audrey Bitoni, Scott Nails: Audrey Bitoni, a hardened brunette with large implants was the first gal to get Robby talking as he pawed her during the tease portion of her scene. Her leopard print underwear was sexy although the shoes were horrible; eliciting some comments from a whispering Robby as she slowly gyrated on the bed. Scott Nails joined her to go down on her, playing with her crotch a little as she continued to wiggle about the bed. That was when I really noticed her ugly, dragon-lady fingernails too but he didn't care as he was totally focused on providing her some oral loving. I'll admit that her blowjob was very aggressive and fun, but he did most of the penetrative work when porking her, the sweat rolling off both of them as a result. They each did more oral and he took awhile but managed to jerk off a load to her face to complete the mediocre scene.
Scene Four: Control 6: Teagan Presley, Scott Nails: Teagan Presley, the Houston hotty featured all over the front cover, was up next in some simple underwear as a model for Scott Nails as he snapped shots of her on the couch. She was masturbating and appearing to get off, causing him to sport an erection too, leading to him going down on her with tongue and fingers in no time. She panted with pleasure, gritting her teeth as he worked his wonderful touch on her, the lady looking leaner than ever for those keeping track. She reciprocated with a moderately heated hummer, applying handjob action in quantity but nearly gagging as a result of his size. She then worked her way up to taking more in, the aggressive action getting better with time. They then started porking vaginally; Teagan pushing back on his cock during portions of the scene to really liven things up but sometimes seeming to be concentrating too hard as she sought the right angle for him to work. In that sense, it came across as a grudge fuck of sorts, little being said as the two tore into one another as if on a bet. There was no condom this time and as far as straightforward sucking and fucking is concerned, it was one of her best of the year. The scene ended with him jerking off to her mouth and upper torso, Scott snapping some pictures of her semen soaked figure before the scene closed out.
Scene Five: Control 7: Rebeca Linares, Ben English: Rebeca Linares, a sultry little brunette from Spain, was up next as she worked with super agent Ben English, the gal wearing a muff buffer skirt that showed the lower half of her ass even before she started climbing up some wooden stairs to reveal her thong nestled deep inside her juicy backside as she looked for her dog. The scene showed her holding a camera which gave it some additional perspective, the gal walking through the house in her white stripper shoes when she came across a guy tied up and sporting a black mask over his head. Rebeca played with him a little and nibbled on his face through the material, the loser found to be none other than “Jamall Johnson”, Robby’s goofy cousin that often did BTS for him. She groped him and called him names , stepping on his crotch and giving him a whiff of her crotch after she removed his mask but she was soon interrupted by Ben English who fussed at her since he wasn’t there for her amusement. Ben grabbed her hair and dragged her around while calling her names like “stupid bitch”, soon pushing her down the hallway as he inspired her anger with some playful slapping, Ben also holding the camera to show some true POV footage as the couple started getting increasingly sexual. She slobbed his turgid knob, his mocking her as she encouraged his raging boner to grow by nearly throating him until they started some very active vaginal pounding. The lengthy scene then showed Ben inserting a glass anal plug in her perfect pucker, stretching her ass out for the following anal and otherwise using her as he saw fit. There was a technical DP and she did some taste testing, Ben eventually draining his dragon of sperm all over her face as she knelt before him.
Scene Six: Control 7: Faye Reagan, Scott Nails: Faye Reagan, a heavily freckled redhead from Nashville, was then up with series frequenter Scott Nails, the scene opening up as he beat his meat while shooting footage of her on the bed. There were two cameras here, the one held by Scott and the primary camera held by the director, Faye stripping for Scott as she followed his instructions, peeling off her tight jeans to show a complete lack of panties, her animal print bra put on after initially showing her naked boobs. The scene took ample time to build up some sexual tension, Faye rubbing one out as Scott coaxed her into putting on a show for him, then joining her to use his hand on her crotch before she blew him with a degree of skill. She had a bald beaver and was active at riding here and there but not consistently, her aural comments coaxing him to eventually plaster her mug when she milked his balls dry of semen by some cowgirl variations, Scott nutting in her mouth for her to swallow.
Scene Seven: Control 8: Jenna Haze, Johnny Sins: Jenna Haze, perhaps the biggest name in porn these days that still shoots regularly, was up first and the adage "you get what you pay for" certainly came to mind as this opening volley presented itself of her in the house getting ready for something. Johnny Sins was outside stalking her as she pranced about in her sexy animal print bikini, cleaning up in the bathroom, getting an ice cream cone, and otherwise enjoying her day. Those that have seen this fine young lady eating anything (or anyone) will know what I mean when I say that I appreciated the additional tease footage, the part where he jumped out at her was a nice starting point for the couple to bone as well. The transition to the sex could have been a bit more gradual for me but Jenna sucked a mean cock and he reciprocated well enough to get some praise too. It was almost exactly at the 30 minute mark when he started pounding the turned on hotty, going balls deep inside her tight biscuit with some PTM making it even better. Jenna was an active rider of cock (as expected) and her dirty talk made the resulting blast of population pudding a wonder as it went from her chest all the way over her head with plenty sported on her face too.
Scene Eight: Control 9: Eva Angelina, Tommy Gunn: Eva Angelina, one of the most popular ladies in porn of late, was up first as she teased the camera with some large toys, her neon pink shorts flying off quickly to gain access to her pussy as her sweet ass was exposed in a nearly taunting manner. Eva kept the action up with a passionate solo act too, slamming the toys inside of herself before they were replaced with studly Tommy Gunn. Fingering her perfect pucker, Eva made it clear that she'd be available for anal action here, her recent "Eva-lution" into anal proving to excite a number of new fans just before she took time off to have her first kid (MILF movies here she comes!). She sucked Tommy off in the living room in a heated manner but it was her aggressive vaginal riding that really hit the spot, Eva taking charge of getting off with the meat puppet, frantically rubbing herself as she impaled her pussy on his cock. This led to some taste testing and then anal, Eva slowing down at first but bouncing on his cock in her backside before long. Eva kept her glasses on and Tommy rubbed out a wad of population pudding to her face, the chemistry between them evident the entire time.
Summary: The Best of Control by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was a dedicated compilation of scenes focusing on scenes taken from the “Control” series coming out of the company from 2004 to 2009, earning a very solid Watch It Online. In short, The Best of Control was advertised as having a plethora of scenes with contract performers from the once popular series, the work among the best Robby ever did so give this one a look but buy the whole series if you want the true “best” it had to offer.
