Movie Review: Auditions 18, Florida, Part 1


BY VINCENT LAMBERT

Director:
Michael Lucas.
Cast: Jonathan Vargas, Ray Star, Albert Long, Jorden Michaels, Cole Daniels, Derek Scott, Mario Perez, Francesco Giovanelly, TJ, Miguel, Todd Welch.

Eighteen might be enough. Director Michael Lucas is back with a disappointing installment of his Auditions series. This time, he heads to Florida to check out the local talent, most of whom seem to be right from some trashy trailer park. Luckily he brings along exclusives (and porn pros) Jonathan Vargas and Ray Star to save the day. Their scenes are the only reason to take this trip south. Vargas shares a hot threeway with Mario Perez and Francesco Giovanelly (who mysteriously disappears halfway through, leaving Vargas and Perez to 69 and fuck on their own—not that they miss him). This trio finally brings some heat to the movie, which is sorely lacking in the first two scenes, with their inspired cocksucking. There is also a great daisy-chain ass-eating shot as the three studs go to town on one another’s butt holes. Star has an intense encounter with Todd Welch, pounding his meaty cheeks only after both guys bury their faces deep in each other’s asses. As for the newcomers, it’s hard to stomach chunky Albert Long in a gay sex scene after he goes on and on in an interview about his wife, kid and how “straight” he is. No wonder he has zero chemistry with Jorden Michaels in their awkward pairing. Cole Daniels and yellow-haired Derek Scott (who is a dead ringer for chubby gossip blogger Perez Hilton, which should tell you a lot about his porn-star potential) are both thick around the middle and not up to Lucas standards. Only real-life couple TJ and Miguel show any promise in their playful romp. Lucas also pushes boundaries a bit here with more oral/facial cum shots and cum eating than usual. Too bad the faces aren’t better. Extras include a brief pissing scene with a few cast members. (Lucas Entertainment)

At least Michael isn't in it. I bought several earlier Auditions vids and Micael Lucas did the interviewing, or I should say, did all the talking and answered the questions he asked the models. The vids were really all about him.

what's happening to hottie Vargas? I don't see him in movies anymore and his blog hasn't been updated for a very long time?

I haven’t seen or heard from Jonathan in a while, but most models tend to go in and out of the business. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of him.
