A reader by the name of gundam20012005 was kind enough to submit the following review of the popular superheroine web site New-Goddess.com. Rather than a review of an individual video or series of videos, gundam has instead reviewed the site itself, which offers monthly memberships allowing subscribers to access all of the company’s videos. So, here is gundam’s review:
New Goddess Cinema has been around for a few years now, but they still continue to grow strong with their films and heroines. Firstly, these heroines can hold their own and are as intelligent as they are strong. Those of you who are fans of heroines dominating opponents will be pleased that they kick plenty of ass in each film. One key thing to note when going into these films is that the people making these sites are not nearly as well financed as say The Battle for Earth and Next Global Crisis. These guys are doing superheroine films on a fairly small scale and they are not trying to do anything beyond what they are capable of. I have a lot of respect for this and am happy that NGC has continued to prosper even in the shadows of their heavyweight peers.
As mentioned above, the actresses are truly bred for Superheroine action and bring something new to each role they play, no matter how similar the characters are. One look at Annick Blanchard as Black Widow or Stephanie Aubry as Superior Girl and you will immediately fall in love with these French speaking beauties. This is also helped by the scripts written for the site. This is the most natural sounding dialogue I have ever heard in a Superheroine video and it works well. Best of all, these guys look like they are having fun making these vids and that energy translates to the movies themselves. Plus, for 29.95 for one non recurring membership, you have a pretty big library of films to choose from (they are up to over 120 now). Granted, they update only once maybe twice a month so you may or may not get a brand new one depending on when you register, but still it’s a lot of films to watch.
A couple of downsides. There is plenty of peril. However, it lasts for no more than seen in the trailers. So if you’re looking for long lasting scenes of power draining, belt loss action, you may be disappointed. It’s still good peril nonetheless. Also, the stories of each video are repetitive, VERY repetitive. At times it looks as though the crew is just testing their plot on as many heroines as they can in the exact same fashion. It hasn’t been until some of their more recent films that they have begun to break their establish plot molds and try new, sometimes darker approaches to their films. However the good looking women, the abundance of action and clever dialogue make up for all that.
1. Beautiful, nay FRACKING GORGEOUS, actresses
2. Natural sounding dialogue
3. Wide range of heroines
4. Nice list of films for $29.95
5. Does what it can with low budget filming
1. One maybe two updates depending on when you register
2. Peril doesn’t last very long
3. Some storylines very, VERY repetitive
Thanks for that review, gundam. I agree with just about all of that. The girls look great, and for $29.95, you do get a ton of videos to watch. However, as gundam said, they do become very, very repetitive after a while, with the same basic plot structure repeated with almost every video. It might be worth it to give it a shot since the costumes are great and the actresses are very attractive.
