Best SHIP video ever

Post by Bert »

Videos made specifically for our genre have only existed for about 15 years. It's remarkable how much has happened in that time and how the genre has improved and moved through various stages. From membership sites that doled out short weekly updates to early standalone films. More producers entered the fray, quality went up, choice expanded. At some point customs became the operating model from some top producers. I've followed it all from the beginning and spent thousands over a decade and a half. I noticed recently that despite the hundreds of videos I've purchased, there are certain ones that I just keep coming back to. It wasn't that hard to identify the one that has stood up the best for me, although in some ways I'm surprised by that fact.

Obviously, personal preference is highly...personal. My likes will be different than yours, perhaps radically different. In general I like films with a fairly powerful, beautiful heroine in a sexy costume who is capable but gets in over her head and ends up in a desperate fight where she is increasingly on the receiving end. I prefer male opponents, and multiple opponents. Decent acting from the heroine in non-peril parts of the film is nice to have. A decent story line matters to me. Good physical skills from the actress matters. But the most important part for me is if the actress can project vulnerability really well while on the receiving end in the fight scenes. That means physically reacting to blows and holds, facial expressions and believable vocal reactions.

It turns out my favorite film to date is a TBFE entry from 2015 called Excelsia 2. It stars an actress credited as "Kelsie", who I have never seen in another peril film. On paper, Excelsia 2 hits some but not all of my preferences. Kelsie isn't fantastic at throwing punches or selling offense. TBFE did an admirable job of editing to lessen the effects of that deficiency. And while the beginning of the video has great back and forth action, after a while the heroine isn't able to fight back any more and it becomes a straight beatdown, which isn't usually my preference. Also the ending goes too far for my preference and get too violent and dark. So why this one? Well, the stuff it gets right massively outweighs the negatives. Kelsie is absolutely gorgeous and has the long, wavy hair that I really love. Her costume is incredibly sexy and she fills it out in spectacular, eye-popping fashion. She does well projecting confidence at the beginning. But the main thing Excelsia 2 excels (sorry!) at is Kelsie selling vulnerability when she is taking punishment. In that regard, this film is unmatched. She reacts physically to blows perfectly. He facial expressions are perfect. Her vocal reactions are perfect. This actress set a bar for peril acting that I don't think has ever been equaled. One of my biggest gripes with peril films in the vocal reactions. To me, that aspect is super important. Kelsie sells it incredibly well, including ramping up her reactions as the peril intensifies.

So there you have it. My favorite peril film. I'm curious about what others feel is their fave and why.

Bert:
After reading your post, I watched Excelsia 2 for the first time in years. I remembered the movie and i knew I had it somewhere, but I also remembered there was something about it that kind of turned me off to it. After watching it again, I have to say that I agree with everything you said about the film and, especially, the lead actress. She is beautiful with a fantastic body and she sells the beating extremely well. the thing that bothered me, however, was her sunburn. Her face, upper chest and legs are badly burned and it was a tremendous distraction to me. By no means did it ruin the movie, but it's kind of hard to look heroic when you are sporting a "Farmer's tan".

As to your question about favorite SHIP video, that is a tough question for me to answer. My tastes are similar to yours with a preference for multiple male opponents. It is best for me if they are "normal" guys who manage to defeat the heroine either by depowering her or by superior numbers. I'd have to say the Hands of Man films are near or at the top of my list. I also really like some of Lucia's recent stuff. McKenzie has a bright future in the business. She is tremendous in The Job and Dishonored.

Easily this. "ON THE RUN" featuring Melanie Dunne Supernova. 10/10 acting. And a 10/10 model, with professional production.

So much stands on the quality of the model. Bluestone have not been close since this.

Perhaps this is my recency bias talking, but one of the best SHIP films I have seen in a number of years, maybe ever, is the recent release of Rye's Reigns of Terror: Enthusiastic participation 3. One of the aspects this film had which I love is the blackmail of the heroine over the discovery of her secret identity. I loved how the villain forced the heroine into being his girlfriend, forcing her into various forms of humiliations which included dressing her in other superheroine costumes and forcing her to have sex, participating in photo shoots where our villain enjoyed putting her in various role playing positions, forcing her to continue servicing his needs while her bat phone kept ringing, letting her know her crimefighter persona was needed at the scene of a crime. Rye found a lot of inventive and creative ways to humiliate the heroine. Alina Lopez was spectacular as Alpha Girl in portraying her loathsome dislike for the villain, and disdain for what he was forcing her to do under protest, very well done. The other great thing in the film was the sexiness and hotness quotient in the film, that the film's style was not a wham bam, thank you mam type of sexual content, that it built up over time, that while the nature of the sexual peril was clearly non consensual due to the threat of blackmail hanging over the heroine, that they sort of took their time with that stuff, that it wasn't rushed, that the villain wanted to make her have an orgasm and enjoy her torment in a twisted way, almost as if while he was violating her, that at the same time trying to corrupt her soul, a seduction of sorts. The film had a lot more simulated sexual content than you would find in most softcore SHIP films. I thought this film was totally awesome and well done.

I've been at it since the internet began and have to go with Gigi Allens in "Endgame" and a close second of her in "Wonder Woman vs Zandor". Both by Rye and of Wonder Woman ... my fave. She is amazing looking and does peril better than most and keeps her costume mostly on (a big plus for me) and lots of KOs. Can't get much better then that. Kudos to the rest. All good!

What Luther said above. Also Allens in The Parolee, I believe it was called.

Gigi Allens was in the Parolee 2 and you are correct, it is an excellent SHIP film. Ashley Rose starred in the original Parolee.

Admittedly, I'm not answering your question, Bert, as I find it really hard picking one best. But I just wanted to say that I definitely resonate with many of the factors that you described. I like strong, beautiful superheroines who fill out their costumes well and probably know they're sporting a "sexy" look, but don't care because they're not worried about giving the bad guys (whether male or female, though my personal bent is more toward female opponents) the wrong idea, since they're not worried in the slightest about losing to their opponents. The baddies can drool all they want, cuz she's gonna majorly kick their asses, so their silly desires for her (as if!) just make them seem even more juvenile and pathetic in her eyes and even more beneath her. But then when the baddies begin to wear the heroine down and overwhelm her through one means or another (I especially like superior numbers), there's a slow recognition on the heroine's part that the victory she was totally banking on is becoming less certain. And then as she continues to accumulate damage, she begins to see that winning is becoming even more unlikely. And finally when she's been rendered helpless and is being abused at will without any way to answer back, she fully understands that her banked-on victory is utterly out of reach, and now those "wrong ideas" that her super-sexy physique and costume helped to conjure in the drooling baddies' minds are going to come true and all she can do is hope to endure it, because she's got nothing left to counter with. That mental journey that the heroine goes through is important to me, and films that stick with me tend to be ones that give these psychological transitions time to develop, and that star an actress who can convincingly convey the heroine's evolving thoughts and emotions through her facial expressions, sounds, and body language. As you described, the acting is especially important when it comes to selling vulnerability in that final stage where the heroine is taking more and more punishment for which she has no good answer, and she finally realizes that she's gotten in over her head and is going to pay a high price. It's certainly nice if the actress can sell her own attacks as well, but it's far more important (to me) how well she sells her psychological and physical transformation from confident/strong to increasingly vulnerable. I haven't seen the Excelsia 2 video you described, and even though some aspects of it don't sound like my primary interests, your description of what it does right makes me think I should check it out.

Going to show my age a bit with this one...

Lady Justice vs. The Hotel Burglars. An oldie, but a goodie and has long been one of my favorites just because of its simplicity and effectiveness. You have a sexy heroine who gets KO'd and fawned over by a couple of lovely cat burglars, she manages to escape and corner one of them, only to get chloroformed by the other and captured once again. Hits one of my hot buttons with two sexy villainesses tying a heroine to a bed and getting naughty with her, a solid forced orgasm with decent camera angles and nice transitions from the heroine's spread legs to her face as she tries to hold back the pleasure, there's an unmasking, and ultimately the heroine still finds a way to save the day. Hit a lot of different targets for me and back in the day was an excellent video. Only minor complain is they could have lingered on Lady Justice a lot more when she first gets bonked on the head and KO'd early in the vid, but that was about my only gripe.

For a more recent video...there was a fantastic series a few years ago, called Masquerade or something of that nature, it had Diana Knight in it as Wonder Woman and a model I'd never seen before, and haven't seen since playing a rather good Supergirl. Jewell was the villainess with a henchman and both heroines were continually trapped and Supergirl took a nice beating in part of it. Not any sexual stuff, but overall it was just a fun peril/beatdown series.
