Extra's: This disc is FULL of extras! 2 Featurettes: "The Making of Raw Footage" and "The Girls of Raw Footage", a bloopers reel, stars stats (GREAT interface and info!), star galleries, star interviews, a movie photo gallery, 8 high quality trailers, and some Wicked Pictures promo material. The scene selection screen is well designed and easy to navigate as well.
Audio/Video Quality: The picture was presented in 1.33:1 ratio full frame and had rich colors, good lighting, and very crisp picture quality. The audio on this disc was a real treat as well. You get to choose between Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Stereo 2.0, and Spanish. The 5.1 soundtrack was constantly working the rear speakers, with some catchy music throughout the movie. It didn't distract from the action going on, and flowed well with the movie. A very professional A/V setup on this disc, I only wish all DVDs were as good as this one!
The Movie: This was an interesting movie to watch. The storyline was unique, and the director pulled off the premise without fault. Basically, Stephanie Swift plays herself in this movie. Fed up with the "fakeness" of traditional porno flicks, she decides to make a documentary, showing the real side of sex. She goes on porn sets and interviews other people, and somehow it always leads to unrehearsed sex. The problem with this is that we get exactly what she wants - Sex without makeup, fancy outfits, or anything of the like. The sex is still pretty hot, and looks natural instead of forced. But the actresses in this movie just didn't sit well with me. They didn't strike me as sexy. Was it deliberate, to add realism to the documentary aspect of the film, or was it just bad casting? Luckily, Stephanie Swift saves this film, with her perky little tits, her cute tan lines, and her steamy sex scenes. They even managed to throw in a little risque sex (anal, lesbian, etc), to add to the mix.
Final Thoughts: Wicked once again one-ups the competition, as far as audio, video, and extras are concerned. Other studios need to realize that most of us have fancy home theaters in this day and age, and cater to our needs. I know when I'm looking at perspective discs to get, these seemingly small details make all the difference. If you're looking for a movie that's a bit different than your standard fare porn, this DVD is just what the doctor ordered!
