Fuckenstein starring Joanna Angel, James Deen, Ramon Nomar and Ssippi (non sex role) and directed and written by Joanna Angel.
The Plot: Joanna Angel's take on the classic Universal film Frankenstein with a little Bride of Frankenstein thrown in for good measure.
: I rented Fuckenstein mainly because it had Joanna Angel and James Deen and they always seem to actually enjoy having sex with each other. To my surprise, this turned out to be an enjoyable romp through the old horror classic.
Fuckenstein shows what you can do with a low budget, IF you've got the talent. Joanna Angel used only two sets (the lab and a bedroom) and a very small cast: herself, Deen, Nomar and Ssippin (non sex role). It should also be noted Fuckenstein stayed true to original by being presented in black and white.
Even though I am sure some lines were ad-libbed, Fuckenstein still had a well written, intelligent script (in other words, the plot made sense) with a great sense of humor. At a running time of approximately 60 minutes, the plot and the sex both had to move along at brisk pace helping Fuckenstein outshine many of the big name parodies out today. And come on, who doesn't want to hear James Deen gleefully, maniacally yelling "It's Alive, It's Alive". I grade Fuckenstein B+

Rocky XXX - A Parody Thriller starring Anthony Rosano, Andy San Dimas, Lily Labeau, Mr. Marcus, Chastity Lynn, Tyler Knight, Jack Lawrence, Madison Ivy, Ron Jeremy, James Bartholet, Jack English and directed by Will Ryder.
The Plot: The first three Rocky movies are rolled into a two plus hour (143 minutes) porn re-imagined version.
: While not the greatest of parodies, Rocky XXX is certainly better than some of the quick cash-in parodies floating around. Anthony Rosano (who I've seen in way too many parodies) shows his impressionistic ability in copying Stallone's Rocky. Andy San Dimas makes a pretty good Adrian....until she takes here clothes off and we see San Dimas' tattoos which in no way fit with the shy character of Adrian who she is portraying.
Rocky XXX hits enough of the high points of Rocky 1-3 to make a credible parody. Ron Jeremy even manages to play his non-sex role as Paulie straight without his usual "wink" to the camera. The sets are very minimal, but thankfully do not detract from the story. All in all not a bad parody and I grade it a C+. If I could only have figured why it had "A Parody Thriller" in the title I might have graded it a notch higher.

Beverly Hillbillies XXX starring Kaylee Hilton, Taylor Vixen, James Bartholet, Kagney Linn Karter, Aubrey Addams, Lucy Blaze, Courtney Page, Annie Cruz, Otto Bauer, Eric John, Dana DeArmond, Ryan Driller, Haley Hewes, Gary Lee, Giovanni Francesco, Tucker Slain and directed/written by Will Ryder/Jeff Mullen
The Plot: With Ellie Mae as his assistant, Jethro decides to become a casting director for the movies and he gets his own casting couch. Once Granny catches on to what's been going on, she heads back to the hills with the rest of the family following close behind her. There's also a subplot about Ellie Mae being used by a rich playboy to enable him to get at Jed's money.
: It's been a while since I've watched one of Will Ryder's parodies. I've always considered him the top man when it comes to porn parodies. That being said, Beverly Hillbillies XXX had some great casting (especially Hayley Hewes as Granny), good writing (although the subplot was never really resolved), but really weak sets and some of the worst sex scenes I've seen in quite some time. Not to mention James Bartholet, a great non-sex porn actor, having a sex scene (something which definitely made me hit the FF button).
If I hadn't known beforehand that Beverly Hillbillies XXX was made by Ryder, I would have just thought it was just made by someone who showed a lot of promise and might make a good feature/parody in the future. The fact that it was Ryder and he put out a movie with such a slapdash look and boring sex scenes makes me grade this one C-.

Private Gladiator directed by Antonio Adamo
The Plot: porn movie based on Ridley Scott's Gladiator
: I've never seen Gladiator being a non-fan of Russell Crowe's, so I can't say how closely Private Gladiator recreates or mimics the original film, but I can say this film was a disaster. Going into the movie I realized it was foreign and dubbed but neither of those were a minus for me. What ruined Private Gladiator for me was the terrible plot, the terrible acting and the poor set-ups for the boring sex scenes. There was some outdoor filming and some cheap lame ass costumes (think your local Halloween store variety), but neither of these added anything to the film. I grade this one a D and I'm not real sure why I'm grading it that high.
