The DVD:

The Ultimate Briana Banks, presented by Vivid DVD doesn't purport to be something that it isn't.  What it is: a compilation disc featuring eleven different scenes from Briana Banks' career.  What it isn't: a DVD featuring a plot, acting, or impressive camera work.  For an in-depth look at the scenes, read on.


Scene Selection:  A nice animated menu featuring the eleven scenes of the main feature split into two different screens.

Main Feature:  It's no secret that this DVD is just a compilation of various Briana Banks scenes from various movies throughout her career.  It starts out with Chapter 1 which features multiple scenes of Briana sucking and and receiving anal sex on the stairs while two other couples go at it on the first floor.  At 17 minutes long, this scene pretty much features all the guy-girl action you would want.  Chapter 2 is 10 minutes long and features another guy-girl scene with just Briana and some guy on a couch.  Chapter 3 (13 minutes) features a beautiful Briana with two guys on a kitchen counter.  What's nice about this chapter, is that it features Briana in her pre-boob job days looking gorgeous.  I for the life of me cannot figure out why she decided to get a breast enhancement as she already had an ample figure and looked damn good.

Chapter 4 appears to be another scene from the same movie as Chapter 1 (a shame that they are basically just recycling movies).  It features Briana working on the two guys who were previously occupied with two girls who now pleasure each other.  The scene is 16 minutes long.  At 11 minutes long, Chapter 5 features another single guy, single girl scene with all the various positions being utilized.  Chapter 6 then switches gears into an all-girl orgy.  The scene is 14 minutes long and most likely from one of Vivid's Where the Boys Aren't DVDs.  Using quite a few dildoes, the scene seems to drag on and on, but is a nice switch from the girl-guy scenes.  Chapter 7 (8 minutes) features Briana with another girl and a guy.  The two girls just switch off with the guy and also work on each other.

Probably the best chapter on the disc (in my opinion), Chapter 8 has Briana with another girl - for 12 minutes.  Briana starts the pleasurement and they then switch positions halfway through.  A very nice scene.  Chapter 9 continues on the girl-guy theme with 8 minutes of solo sex.  Again, we get some anal sex (which almost all the other scenes include), as we are made well aware of the fact that Briana must really enjoy it.  Chapter 10 (7 minutes) - see description for Chapter 9 - guy, girl, different location.  Chapter 11 concludes the disc with a scene from one of the many Where the Boys Aren't (I've seen this one, whereas the first one was a guess).  This long, 24 minute scene, features Briana in there somewhere amongst quite a few other girls.  Nice lesbian action, but not very much of Briana Banks.

Multi Angle Mania:  This feature appears to just be an extra feature they throw on the "Ultimate" discs to showcase some other sort of discs by DVD.  It features a single girl giving a blowjob to a guy with four different angles.  Quite surprisingly, it's not Briana here, but just some random girl.  Nothing too special really.

Amazing Anal:  This feature just has two different scenes with anal action - one from John Friendly's Big and Small 3 and one from In Cold Sweat.  Nothing special - as you can see the "star" in quite a few of her own anal scenes in the main feature.

Photo Gallery:  Features 12 different pictures that are panned across over 2 minutes.  A lame feature of any disc in my opinion.

Previews:  Here you get previews for 4 other Vivid DVDs: Free Janine, If You Only Knew, Young Celeste, and Chatter Box.  It's a bit of free porn, but advertisements nonetheless.

One the Set: A behind the scenes look at Perfect Couple - one of Vivid's other DVDs.  This 17 minute look at the making of a porn DVD is interesting, but nothing too special.  You basically just have a guy with a camera between you and the action now, rather than an unobstructed view.  It's interesting to see them telling the "actors" what to do, but that's about the only upside of this feature.

Sexy Talk: Advertisements for phone sex lines.  How thoughtful - in case you needed to talk to someone after viewing the DVD.

The Web:  Another quick little ad - but this time instead of phone sex, they're trying to get you to sign up for their website.


Presented in the porn-standard of 1.33:1, the video is anything but spectacular.  Since the whole DVD is a rehashing of old Briana Banks clips, these clips show grain and some imperfections, but overall, they're generally watchable.  Also, note that "Multi Angle Mania" is the only part of this DVD that features multiple angles.  Most Vivid DVDs feature multiple angles at various points throughout the DVD, but this one does not.  None of the scenes from the Main Feature are multi-angle.


The sound here is in 2.0 stereo and nothing special.  The Briana Banks scenes are all dated and have no surround (even if they did, it seems as if all special fetures were left off of the main part of this disc).


 If you're a fan of Briana Banks and don't already have these scenes at your disposal, this DVD is for you.  It features a nice mix of various Briana Banks looks (both pre and post boob job) and positions (male/female, male/female/female, all female).  There's no plot - just hardcore action starring Briana Banks.  It shouldn't be a hard decision whether or not you should buy this DVD.  If you like Briana, get it.  If not, don't.
