Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame color. It often looked somewhat grainy and had too much video noise for me to thoroughly enjoy. For the most part, it looked really low budget. The audio, on the other hand, was equally weak. The vocals during the interviews and sex scenes were always too low and sounded hollow. The dvd transfer was fair at best with a number of minor artifacts showing up.

Body of Review: Every once in a while, a company will re-release something that has already been sold either under a different name or with a different dvd cover. This sometimes burns consumers like myself as we may easily not be able to keep track of all the porn we buy or rent. In the case of Newbies, Anarchy kept the original name but changed the cover, using a picture of Sunrise Adams that looked really faded. The movie is a collection of scenes of women who were new to making porn movies when they were taped, most of them with Slim Shady. If you like the performers, read the following scene breakdowns but the quick version is that no condoms were used and all the sex was oral with straight before the popshot.
Scene One: Sunrise, looking really good here (much better than here picture looked on the dvd cover), and Slim, had a scene after the obligatory interview. It was oral and straight only but a lot more fun than half her work as a contract gal at Vivid.
Scene Two: Harley, a blond starlet wearing a cute schoolgirl outfit, and Slim, had a scene on a couch in a small apt. The scene was mostly slow and erotic but had some heat between the two performers. It looked like he lost control and did an internal popshot on her but she looked very uncomfortable in the reverse piledriver position.
Scene Three: Shanel, a cutie I don't remember seeing before, and Slim, had her first onscreen scene together on a large couch. Like the other scenes, the sex was oral and straight with a minor amount of energy but nothing special in these days of high-energy performers. I hope she makes more movies as she'll probably feel less self-conscious after a dozen or two more of them.
Scene Four: Angela, a lean blonde with long legs from the Czech Republic, had a first time scene with Tristan, a European staple. She looked very attractive but the sex, like in many of the other scenes, was a touch too mechanical for me to completely enjoy. Those of you that like new gals will likely overlook this fact ad have a great time with all the scenes but some of us like experience.
Scene Five: Kody, called Desert Rose here, is best known for her current contract status with Vivid. She is a young looking cutie with a tight body and a swell attitude as displayed in movies like Sold, was new to porn when she made this movie. She was hanging out with Slim, who joined her in this scene, and I thought the two did a great job with the limited action that took place. Oral and straight sex only but a good introduction to this little treasure.
Summary: To see early performances by Kody and Sunrise, I didn't mind checking this one out but I'm a fan. Most others would probably view this as a mid-week Rent It or worse. The sex wasn't anything you couldn't get for free at a local bar, with women who ranged from attractive to plain and the production values weren't great either. I think Anarchy bought the rights to re-release it and that's okay as long as it's priced reasonably for what little you get.
