IN THE FLESH (VCA Interactive, 120 minutes) Kylie Ireland, Nikita V., Selen, Mina, Ursula Moore, Mike Horner, Valentino, and Michael J. Cox star in this big-budget title which has everything possible to recommend it. Shot on film, in Budapest, this revisits the classic tale of Shakespeare's Macbeth and offers up American stars and new talent from Europe. With a plot full of greed, betrayal, madness and lust, as well as superb locations, hot performers, and great photography, and a whopping nine sex scenes, this can't fail to earn your admiration.

INTERACTIVE MIND TEAZZER (Vivid Interactive, 240 minutes) Dyanna Lauren outdoes herself again with another state-of-the-art interactive title. Starring Kira Kener, this fully interactive disc presents a game where you try to match up the head of a Vivid girl with her other critical parts. If you match her up successfully, then you are treated to some footage of her stripping. If you fail, you can have fun retrying indefinitely, although the girls will yell at you for your blunder. Since each girl has more than one reward if you match her up, there is a lot of game play here. It's easy to get the hang of, but not so easy to get a perfect match. It helps if you know your Vivid girls well, but it's a great way to learn them apart if you're new to adult DVDs. This original concept will surely be copied, but this is the title to be sure to get. For those who need a less racy version, because they enjoy being teased more than seeing it all, or because of living constraints there is a softer version available as well. The DVD contains Dolby Digital audio, dark room, interactive bonus rooms, behind-the-scenes footage, interactive menus, interactive tour, no regional coding, previews of other titles available, and chapter search. Inside the box is a paper catalog of other titles available. Highly recommended no matter how many other adult titles you already own.

NURSE'S DIARY, THE (Wicked Pictures, 105 minutes) Laure Sainclair, Lea Martini, Anita Blond, Karen Lancaume, Ornella, David Perry and Mike Foster star in this Eurotica film about the gray areas of nursing. Featuring ten sex scenes, this contains a very attractive cast who are a pleasure to watch. The plot is about a nurse who comes to take care of the wife in a wealthy household where the husband and wife both have affairs, and the teenage son likes to spy on women.
