Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. Surprisingly, there wasn't a lot of grain this time although there was some video noise. While not great, the picture was better than a number of recent features by Vivid (hopefully, they keep improving). The stereo English audio wasn't bad, just a bit hollow but the music wasn't mixed quite right in a couple of scenes.

Body of Review: Vivid may be the king of compilations but they still make a number of features, a number of them pretty good for the market niche it serves. In a recent release by them, Good Things, the story centered on a beautiful gal, played by Ava Vincent, who is a total bitch to everyone she meets. After a life altering event, she tries to make up for all the bad karma she caused and things only get worse for those around her. The plot being mostly something to skip, here's a breakdown of the scenes by cast, noting that all the sex was oral and straight with condoms:
Scene One: Briana, dressed as a hooker, had oral and straight sex with Bobby in a flop house. It started out promising with her dominating him but quickly fell apart and became standard porn fodder. She looked good, I just couldn't get into it. For those who care, condoms were used her, and in all the other scenes but that wasn't a factor in the heat quotient.
Scene Two: Sunrise, also looking like a hotty, had Randy on a bed. Oral and straight after she gave him a wicked handjob. Very warm scene between them-I just wished it lasted longer. He came on her feet at the end.
Scene Three: Lezley, also looking pretty good here in "hooker-wear", did Eric as a mercy fuck. This was probably the most energetic scene of the show and a lot of fun to watch. I got the feeling that she was just warming up but I've seen her really tear up the screen so maybe it was just wishful thinking.
Scene Four: Lezley, ready for round two, took on Cheyne (he looked like he gained some weight), on a bed. Very skillful blowjob by her for which he reciprocated before they screwed. Not bad.
Scene Five: Sunrise, this time at the diner in the ladies room, did Slim (is he the "real" Slim Shady?). Oral and an energetic boning scene with both working well together.
Summary: I was disappointed that Ava didn't have a scene here since I think she's a major hotty. I was pleased, however, that both Sunrise and Lezley had a couple scenes apiece since the former is very attractive and the latter, while no slacker in the looks dept, is a dynamo in bed (and on the floor, on the staircase, etc.). While Good Things isn't going to be held up as a great porno, it did have enough solid material to make it worth checking out (which can mean a rental or a purchase, depending on your bank account and attitude towards the gals. My rating? Rent It unless you can't wait for a Sunrise Adams compilation.
