Review of Andrew Blake:
Andrew Blake is known across the Adult Globe for his large body of erotic entertainment. His movies are not large on plot because, as he says, he would just "like to skip right to the nude scene". Blake is more at home fiddling with his Avid or delineating the mysteries of Final Cut Pro than in Los Angeles, Rome, or Paris, where most of his work is shot. He controls all the production aspects of his films, unlike many Hollywood counterparts, because his particular vision demands this amount of control. He is the company. He is the distribution. He is the Lucasian Maverick Artiste of the porn industry. Unlike George, he doesn't have to strain for dialogue because, in his world, it just isn't necessary. At the end of the day, in regards to his films, it's what he likes that matters.
I wonder how much he likes his website. It's controlled by someone else. Yes, Andrew provides most of the content, but when you get right down to it, this site is just one big advertisement for the Andrew Blake collection and doesn't have much reason to exist beyond that. Rip-off? Hardly. There are hundreds of picturres on this site. But if this venture is ever going to aspire to be a true reflection of it's titular artist, it better get hopping.
To be fair, there are some pristine galleries here. They range from actual production stills emanating from past and current on-location shoots (taken by the on-site still photographer), to model shots all snapped by Mr. Blake himself. Super sharp with high society fixings. To the naked eye some people may not think that some of these photos are as high quality as advertised, but this I think is due to some of the filters they use to give things an artful flair.
If you're looking for video, I can only tell you to stay away. This is not the place for you, whether you're a fan of Mr. Blake's or not. This is one of the main reasons why this site doesn't earn its GED. There is 1 full movie. I repeat...1! It is presented through Real Player sponsored by Streaming Pixelated Productions Inc ;). It's poop in a small box. To see what I mean, go grab a small box from your garage and poop in it. Now look inside the box. Now blink your eyes about 80 times a minute to get a sense of a video effect and you're there. Now if you were to ORDER this video, I can imagine that, given this man's reputation, you would probably be in for a real treat. But you're not getting any ice cream here.
Sure I could talk about the site design (very nice, easy to get around) or the lack of banners plastered all over the place, but as I said before, it takes awhile for it to sink in that the site itself is one big banner. A pretty banner, yes. One that doles out treats. But at the end of the day, all it wants you to do is buy, baby, buy. And to this, I say "bye-bye". Gosh, I'm clever.
The price is so low compared to most places out there. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THIS. If anything, it's guilty self-awareness on their part since they know you're not gonna get what you really deserve. This low price probably allows them to sleep well at night. You might have a good time for about a day, tops, until you realize that you've bascially paid someone to pitch you the tree and only entice you with a few ornaments.
BOTTOM LINE: not enough Moan-et for the Mon-ey
