reviews From ManNet
"Beyond Perfect," from master director Jerry Douglas, lives up to its titular promise, no surprise there given his résumé ("The Back Row," "BuckleRoos," "Jock-a-Holics," et al.). With alpha males Brad Patton and Jason Kingsley as flip-flopping lovers, the title could have easily been "The Best Damn Flip-Flop in Porn History ... Period" (their chemistry throughout is palpable, and threatens to jump off the screen in the flip-flop finale). But this is Mr. Douglas, and as such it is a flick for both brains (the one between the ears, as well as the one between the legs, fellas). Both leads acquit themselves nicely, as far as the acting goes, with a script that deals with how to keep a good man, and, specifically, how to make two big-dicked tops happy.
The story in a nutshell: Two muscular tops fall in love, Brad and Jason, and the problems that arise when neither masculine stud wants to bottom for the other. In an effort to resolve this dilemma, they visit a couples' counselor (played to the hilt by Joe Gage). They sit in Joe's office and recount their relationship, including the various sexual situations they've experienced together, as Joe dispenses relationship advice and marital aides. As they explore with Joe the encounters are writ large in flashback, the first of which plays out "Rashômon"-style in a bar ( http://Powerhouse-SF.com ) the night they met. Brad, on the prowl for sex, watches a gaggle of horny red-blooded American men sucking dick right there in the bar: Chad Thomas, Danny Lopez, Marcus Iron, Jason Crew, Andy Briggs and Adam North. The cocksucking here is fantastic -- Chad's beauty of a pecker getting a lot of screen time, deservedly, as Danny and Adam suck it down to the balls (the cocksucking continues in a variety of configurations, every man getting sucked and sucking -- Brad, Jason and a bar full of patrons as horny voyeurs). But Jason remembered the guys also progressed to fucking, not just cocksucking, as Brad had related in his version of events, the scene then switches to Jason's perspective, and Danny Lopez, as we enter Jason's flashback, is bobbing up and down on Jason Crew's long dick, leading to Chad Thomas getting cornholed by Jason, and then Chad fucking the daylights out of Jason Crew.
The next two scenes take us on Brad and Jason's separate hook-ups via Castro Street in San Francisco one sunny afternoon. Brad picks up some trade, Marc Sterling, a tall brunet with a huge dick. Marc unzips Brad and goes down on his gigantic prick first, really swallowing the hugeness nicely. Brad returns the favor, and rims Marc's hairy crack too before slamming a harsh fuck into his charge. Jason has the good fortune to hook up with Brad Benton next, a true sexual dynamo. Jason and Brad trade blows, Brad devouring Jason's snake-like penis in hearty gulps, Jason makes quick work of sucking Brad's slender member, twists him around for a rim, then fucks him over, around and atop a black sedan parked in the garage in which their excellent late-afternoon romp takes place.
Brad and Jason visit their free-spirited neighbors next -- Pete Ross, Justin Gemini and Timmy Thomas. They have a three-way relationship, and all three young men are versatile. Intrigued, Jason and Brad are treated to a sex show on a big bed by the trio. The blond hotties trade blows, rims and fucks in equal measure, much to Brad and Jason's astonishment (they sit, cocks in hand, in a corner of the bed to watch, but don't participate sexually, much to Pete's chagrin).
In the lead-up to the big flip-flop, Brad says that he thinks that his relationship with Jason is perfect save for the fucking. Aha! If these two tops can add fucking to an already perfect relationship it would then be "beyond perfect." Get it? Well Joe Gage counsels them one last time, encouraging them to undress in his office and trade blows and rims -- right there in front of him. Joe gets an eyeful, to say the least, and then gets them to shove Lucite buttplugs up each other's chutes. They leave his office and return home, buttplugs firmly in place, to continue this new dimension of their relationship.
The big breakthrough moment occurs when they fuck each other, of course, and the scene plays out almost in real time. They begin on the balcony, fog rolling in from the bay, as Brad slides that humongous cock of his up Jason's hairy butt. They move inside, Jason taking the lead this time, Brad squatting over and then sitting on Jason's long dong. They share many different positions from there, and the spectacular ending has Brad on his back on a carpet getting the cum fucked out of him by Jason, and then Brad rubbers up and plunges into Jason to fuck him to climax as well. A perfect little ending to a perfect little flick.
DVD features: Chapters; optional audio commentary (writer-director Jerry Douglas, actor Brad Patton and producer John Rutherford); behind-the-scenes footage; photo galleries (by performer); trailers ("LeatherBound" and "BuckleRoos"); and no regional coding (playable worldwide).
A DVD Review by Butch Harris
When the subject of porn comes up among my friends, the number one comment is always, "I'd watch more porn if it had a decent story line." Well, if you share that attitude, then anytime you see the name Jerry Douglas associated with a production, snatch it up! Writer/director Douglas always seems to be filling that niche in the market with well-acted, highly produced and, most importantly, fucking hot sex scenes in all his videos. Beyond Perfect is no exception and excels in telling a heartfelt story all men can identify with as well as getting your rocks off over and over again. The title refers to where relationships go when two "perfect" people meet -- what's beyond that physical attraction? Luckily for us, the two perfect gents in question are blond beauty Brad Patton and handsome and hairy Jason Kingsley. They are a gorgeous couple who have reached in impass in their relationship after a few years. To deal with the distrust that they feel with each other (Patton walks in on Kingsley fucking a third party in their bed during the opening credits), they opt to go to a couple's counselor, played by famed director Joe Gage.
Counselor Gage has them recall the first time they met, which turns into a sexy version of "He Said/He Said" as they both recall meeting at a bathhouse but with different details. Patton's version has some very hot oral sex by bathhouse patrons Adam North, Danny Lopez and Chad Thomas. The oral action is constantly changes and includes superstuds Marcus Iron, Jason Crew and the adorable Andy Briggs. How does any man not immediately blow his load while being sucked by Iron? He gives the best-looking bjs! Briggs chowing down on Thomas' asshole didn't look too bad either. Somehow through all cocksucking and rimming, Patton sees Kingsley's naked rump across the room as the dark-haired stud pulls up his drawers. His reaction is, "What's a guy who looks like that doing in a place like this?" Et tu, Patton? After all the guys have blown their loads, Patton and Kingsley make their way across the room, where Patton makes the first move. Sounds good, but in Kingsley's version the six studs are fucking their brains out instead of sucking, and he sees Patton's naked rump across the room. It's fun to see the same six guys going at in a different way, but the scene plays on for quite a while with no major action from our two main stars.
While our bathhouse-crossed lovers disagree with who picked up who, they do agree that it was the hottest sex they ever had. And continued to be until they moved in together, and then things started to cool off. In an attempt to keep the fires burning, they agree to try a three-way but can't agree on a guy. While cruising the Castro together, Patton splits off and decides to test ride street pick-up Marc Sterling on a construction site. Tall, lanky Sterling is very sexy and has a great deep voice. He manages to go down on Patton's curved beer can thick cock, getting face-fucked by the uncut rod. Patton returns the favor and deep-throats Sterling before rimming his furry butthole. Slipping on a condom, Patton rams his huge meat into Sterling, plowing him in several positions. Patton's absolutely gorgeous as he slams into Sterling's milky white behind. Both studs shoot big loads all over Sterling's bod and then share a smoke. While smoking, Sterling tries to arrange an encore performance, but Patton is vague and denies having a lover. Hmmm.
Once again, we have the same scene with a different perspective, and this time, it's Kingsley who slinks out of sight, following sexy Brad Benton into a nearby garage. After a fierce make-out session next to a parked car, Benton goes down on Kingsley's incredible cock. Uncut, thick and veiny, this great-looking cock looks like it goes on for a foot, but Benton takes good care of it. And Kingsley is fucking-white hot! Handsome, dark haired, big muscle build, chest hair, thick bush, big cock, sweet-looking ass, sexy South African accent. Yep, the guy has it all! On top of that, he sucks Benton's cock and rims his hot little ass before mounting his ass on top of the parked car. This couple looks great as they fuck on top of the hood and standing next to the car. Got to love how Kingsley fucks with his hips instead of slamming his entire body with each thrust. The man knows how to fuck! He literally fucks the cum out of Benton before shooting his own load. Once again, after the fucking, the talking begins and it turns out Benton is husband hunting, which scares off Kingsley, who also denies that he has a lover.
After many sessions in the office with Gage, the competitive, quarrelling couple has decided to call it quits. That is until they meet their new neighbors, Pete Ross, Timmy Thomas and Justin Gemini. Seems these three versatile guys have been in a relationship for three years also, but they don't seem to have the territorial hang-ups that Patton/Kingsley have. Like all good neighbors, the three young studs put on a sex show for our couple. While Patton and Kingsley stroke their cocks, Ross, Thomas and Gemini get into just about every combination of sucking and fucking possible. Eventually, all five guys blow their loads on Ross. Welcome to the neighborhood! As they are leaving, Ross asks if they do more than jack-off. "Oh sure!" But when alone, they realize that both of their "top" status is a problem, since they have never fucked each other. In their next therapy session, they are ready to throw in the towel on the whole relationship but realize that they love each other. If they could just get over their intimacy issue regarding bottoming Gage initiates that they don't know how to make love, and the couple strips down, makes out and starts to 69 on his desk. It's very tender, yet passionate cocksucking between them, with Gage encouraging them to rim each other. Yum! This leads to finger-fucking and, eventually, glass butt plugs (provided by the good therapist). Our studs are then instructed to get dressed and walk home with the butt plugs firmly in place.
Back home, the sex starts up again, with our guys 69ing outside on their balcony. The butt plugs eventually get pulled out, which prompts the studs to find other large, hard objects to put up their aching holes. Kingsley bravely sits down on Patton's mammoth cock and bounces up and down on the uncut whopper. They head inside, and it's now Patton's turn to back up onto Kingsley's oversized sausage. The fucking starts out nice and slow for them, but as they flip-flop back and forth, topping each other, the fucking progressively gets harder and harder until they are really pounding away at each other's holes. It's an incredibly hot scene as these two gorgeous, built guys give and take cock. My favorite part is when Patton really starts to get into bottoming and just says, "Wow!" like getting his ass slammed is the best thing that's ever happened to him. Both guys pump big loads out of each other, coating their hot bods with jizz. They return to Gage's office and thank him for his help and let him know its a happy ending for them. In a great twist, Gage admits that its not the end but actually the beginning of working on the relationship, now that the sex part has been taken care of. How true!
You know when you combine themes of what makes a couple, sex vs. love, gay men's perception of masculine and open relationships with outstanding sexual performances, its pretty damn great! This video is as thought-provoking as it is cum-provoking! And the best part is when you watch the Special Features section and find out that the entire story is based on the real-life events that took place within director Douglas' real-life relationship. I can't think of a time that a writer/director has ever put such a large part of themselves on the screen like that and opened themselves up and made themselves vulnerable to the public like that. Bravo! Nothing's perfect, not even the lives of award-winning porn directors. Anyone who's even thinking of being in or making gay porn has to watch the movie with Douglas' commentary running. You will get tremendous insight into what it takes to make an excellent product. You'll also hear some very funny and touching stories. I also can't say enough great stuff about the leads. The acting is spot-on, and the sex just melts the screen -- even when they are not together. And who knew Gage was such a great actor! Douglas has been averaging one movie a year of late, but if they are all going to be this well-made, I say don't rush things!
