Pirates XXX


A few of my gay friends have been recommending I watch the adult movie Pirates...I'd seen some trailers on their iPods and was pretty impressed with the production values. No, seriously. The film has won best picture at the AVN in Vegas, including best director, actress and actor.

So Stagg and I were at a local sex shop the other day and I asked about the movie if they had a copy...60 bucks later and I was ready to write a film review. The idea of writing a film review on an adult film was inspired by blog pal Nichtszusagen when she wrote a review of a porn film in December.
Now...the problem with this venture is that although I would like to write a review ...we didn't make it to the end of the movie. Snerk.

What we did manage to watch was really a lot of fun...some of the cast are pretty good actors. The women are absolutely gorgeous...some of the guys not so much so Stagg kind of got the better deal. Pirates, at least what we saw so far...is one of the best porn films I've ever seen. References are made to Pirates of the Carribean and a pirate ship is an excellent setting for swag and sex...I mean right away puffy shirts, ripped corsets, wrist bands and leatherette, knives and sailing set the tone. There is a fair bit of humour and I am really impressed by the director Joone and the production company Digital Playground for making a high concept XXX porn film.

I'll let you all know if we ever make it through the whole film...

You know I've gotta comment, right?

I've been toying with the idea of buying this. I can get the 3-disc set for a bit cheaper than that online (US$52 from cdwow.com). Even so, I'm just not quite sure it's worth the cash outlay.

If you write a really amazing review, I might spring for it.

So, whaddya waiting for? Get watching (again)!

Maybe it'll take you guys a while to get through the viewing part, eh? Tee hee.

Is $60 pricey? It's been so long since I indulged in the world of adult entertainment ... I believe the last one I saw starred Marilyn Chambers!

PS Thanks for sending positive thoughts my way on my blog today.

So....I guess the review was good because you didn't finish watching?
I would imagine that is a 5 star rating for a porn film.
Too bad the guys weren't as attractive as the women. I find that in mainstream films all the time.

When On Demand was running this movie last year, there were commercials for it. I thought it was strange that they would be promoting a porn movie, but it started to make sense when they talked about the awards it had won. I must say that the cover box is very enticing. Good luck making it to the end of the movie.

i've never seen porn and don't really plan to... but glad you, err, enjoyed it ;)

LOL! Hope you get a chance to finish it. We... er... usually don't end up watching them straight through, either.

I put Pirates in my Sugar DVD queue (like Netflix, but adult movies). All their copies are currently checked out, but hopefully that won't last long.

Birds on the cover could shiver my timbers anyday ;-)
