The Movie Tera Patrick isn't like a lot of other adult stars, she only does a small number of movies each year, all of them crefully chosen and of high quality. Forbidden Tales falls right in line with a streak of films aimed at making Tera Patrick an adult mega-star.
Shot in Prague, Forbidden Tales is set in a picturess castle sometime during the middle ages (so expect lots knights and peasant girls). Live action castle scenes are intercut between digitally animated 'space age' scenes which combine computer animated characters and effects with live actors (Tera Patrick). Forbidden Tales has pretty high production values, who would ever have expected to see this level of digital effects in an adult film!
The live action scenes in the castle are all very well shot, lit and produced. It's clear that Digital Playground was setting out to make a well made film. The films score is also well done, with music that sounds like it's a descendant of Enigma.

The real meat and potatoes of Forbidden Tales of course are the sex scenes, many of which feature actors and actresses from Prague. It's very easy to get sick of seeing the same people over and over in adult films so the fresh faces in Forbidden Tales is a welcome change of pace . The highlight of Forbidden Tales of course are scenes with Tera which there are 4 (out of 6). Each sex scene really takes it's time (think foreplay) and are well edited. There's a reason why Tera is an adult star, she's just fantastic. All four of her scenes are quite enjoyable and well done.
The DVD Forbidden Tales is one of the most enjoyable adult DVDs I've seen, not because of the sex (which is good) but because of the hilarious commentary track on the DVD. Producer Samantha Lewis and Actress Tera Patrick talk about everything from shooting in Prague, to the casting session, the size of her co-stars and what's she's really thinking during the sex scenes. If you are a fan of Terra Patrick or adult film you've absolutely have to check out this commentary, it's so chock full of information, comments and humor it'll change the way you look at adult DVDs and it's definately one of my favorite commentaries on DVD so far.
In addition to the commentary there's a short lighthearted 'Making of' which follows Tera around the set of the shoot. As with the commentary it's quite amusing and humorous and gives you a look into what it's really like to shoot an adult movie.
Final Thoughts Forbidden Tales is one of those great Adult DVDs with high production values, good sex, and interesting extras that is perfect to get if you're looking for something to watch with a significant other. The commentary track is worth picking up this DVD alone, and it really makes me eager to see what Terra Patrick does next.
