Plot: What’s it about?
She’s one of the most famous redheads in the world, even though her natural hair color is blonde. I am speaking of international supermodel Amber Smith, who has a gorgeous face, a stunning body, and knows how to work her assets. This hottie oozes sexual vibes, as she has that look of fierce presence, not like most of the more tame models out there. Maxim Magazine named her one of the hottest women in the world, an honor few would argue, since she has universal beauty and incredible charisma. She has landed herself in endless magazines, advertising campaigns, and other photographic elements, including some of the hottest pin-ups you’ll find, so Smith has an impressive collection of work. She can play up her softer side, to bring across a sense of innocence, or let loose her inner beast, which results in a sexually dynamic presence. Smith didn’t stop at modeling however, as she can be seen in such films as Howard Stern’s Private Parts, How High, Tomcats, How to Be a Player, and American Beauty. If you’ve ever wanted to be up close & personal with Amber Smith, this is about as close as you’ll ever get.
I don’t often watch programs like this one, in which a model is followed through her paces, but I couldn’t pass this one up. The draw of this kind of release falls with its star and to be honest, most models, even the super hot ones, don’t interest me enough to sit down and watch a feature about their daily lives. Of course, I’d look at some still photos or watch a brief piece on a photo shoot, but aside from looks, a lot of the girls have little to offer. But in the case of Amber Smith, I had to make an exception and couldn’t wait to scan this release. In truth, while Smith is incredible and I could never tire of looking her over, this program isn’t that great. It is cool to see her in various outfits and more candid sequences, but there is a staged texture to the process. That is to be expected though, as this is kind of a promotional tool for Smith’s career. But as far as eye candy, you couldn’t ask for much more than Amber Smith: R.A.W. delivers. You’ll see hot photo shoots, even hotter still photos, and Smith’s always a lot of fun to watch. So if you just want an excuse to spend an hour drooling over one of the planet’s hottest females, then Amber Smith: R.A.W. is well recommended, since your eyes couldn’t have it much better than this.
Video: How does it look?
Amber Smith: R.A.W. is presented in full frame, as intended. This program is made up of footage from numerous sources, which means the visuals are varied somewhat, though the end result is a solid treatment. This is shot on video material, so there isn’t the same kind of refinement, but viewers won’t be let down. You have to judge the transfer with the material in mind, so in this case, that means slanting the scale for video based sources. The material all looks clean and sharp, with only some minor softness and jagged edges to mention. I wouldn’t say Amber Smith: R.A.W. looks excellent, but it looks good enough. And trust me on this one, you won’t be paying attention to the transfer, not even close.
Audio: How does it sound?
Not much to talk about in terms of audio, as this is a visually driven program that deals with real life events. So the audio is limited to low impact sound effects and dialogue, with some music thrown in at times. The included stereo track is more than sufficient, with some decent presence and separation at times. I don’t think this show would benefit much from surround sound, so the lack of depth is never a concern. All that matters is that Smith’s vocals come across well and in truth, even that doesn’t matter that much here. All the elements seem in proper order however, which leaves me to score this one as a solid presentation.
Supplements: What are the extras?
This disc includes some bloopers, outtakes, an expanded slide show, a talent file on Smith, and a special look at all of her work.
