To sum it up: It is a 3-dimentional version of the calender with cheesy music.
Pity there was no sound track, even if the French could not always be understood it would be nice to put a voice to the man.
The black & white sections added a different dimension to the film.
If you liked 2004, you need to have 2005 to complement it. They are a bit different, but both are wonderful celebrations.
95% of the time there's a hand, sock, knee, table, or another stupid model blocking the view. Better titles for these DVDs would be "Viva La Bootie!" or "Rugby Players Know How 2 Handle Zee B@lls".
The models often seem uncomfortable with their nudity. Which is understandable. And some of the poses are provocative.
This version is nicer than the 2004 DVD and it's in color not B&W. The 2006 version is apparently even more disappointing than either 2004 or 2005.
The most charming part of this DVD was the number of times the camera saw these guys sneak-a-peek to "check out the competion". Male insecurity running rampant is so sweet.
The production quality is another thing all together. Almost all of the shots appear over-exposed (no pun intended). This washes out the colors and flattens the images. The overall effect makes the material as erotic as the evening news. Digital video can look pretty good with the right post-production but it didn't get the treatment here.
The camera work and the transitions between edits is needlessly jumpy. The same snippet of video is often used over and over. Think music video. The music will drive you to the remote. There is really no dialoge so you can just as well provide your own soundtrack.
The hardcover photo book might be a better value.
The models are photographed in color but somehow it loses something from the beautiful black and white of the previous year.
There is no dialogue, only music underneath the footage.
I miss the interaction between the models and the photographers. This plays more like MTV.
And can you believe someone actually gets paid $ to apply makeup to the butts of these guys, while another strategically places sand on his cheeks.
Talk about loving your job!
The DVD is sexy and erotic without being embarrassingly "in your face". After buying the 2005 DVD, I bought the 2004 DVD. This DVD is really great too. I really love how it begins with the music and its filmed in black & white and of course is filled with gorgoeous man after man.
I can't wait to see the 2006 DVD!
