All right, let’s talk about what was done right in this movie and where there’s room for improvement:
1. Nikki Benz: well, she’s about as famous as porn stars come. And, no doubt you’ve already got your own opinion. And, let’s face it…
…I ain’t gonna influence your thought patterns one way or another. I accept that, man! People need to accept life, man! People are only influenced by TV commercials… not VR porn reviews!
2. Scaling: As mentioned earlier, that’s what makes this movie a keeper. NA VR has gotten really damn good at this. Hey, man… I just tell it like it is… if it looked awful, I’d say so…
But, they’re really mastering this big, in-your-face scaling that makes all the difference. It creates a heightened realism.
For instance, during the Nikki cowgirl sections, the illusion is effectively created, optically, that a life-sized woman is bouncing on your lap.
Now, I ain’t saying the illusion’s perfect. Nobody’s achieved perfection, yet. But, it’s getting there. It’d difficult to describe in words, because what I’m really saying is that it feels right. And, when it feels right, all you can really say is it… wait for it… feels right.
3. Positioning: well done. Cowgirl, reverse, stand-up, doggy, missionary. You know what was particularly excellent? The missionary footage. Again, I’ve seen NA progress here. Particularly when Nikki props herself up on her elbows and pushes into the camera…this is how it’s done, son!
And, I thought the doggy footage, technically-speaking, was better than usual.
4. Close-ups: the camera stayed tight most of the time. That’s what you want in VR. My only complaint is the same one I always make. I don’t feel like typing it out again.
