Does Dominator pin Spectrum after each KO or just at the end?

I would tend to agree with some of the below posts. Spectrum does have a rather goofy and over-selling aspect to her expressions and reactions. I also tend to not like that as much. While all of these videos have an element of ‘selling’ the fights and most are a bit campy at times, she does take it to a new level. That’s why I like BB and Deceptress as they handle with with a bit more realism. Just a personal preference at the end of the day. And I also see the need to have different types of videos… Read more »

A little late to the gathering (again) and I’m not going to directly address what others have written, but obviously some of us seem to have had some similar reactions. First, I’m going out on a limb, but here goes: Spectrum is a very attractive woman. No matter what she does, wow is she good looking. The Dominator isn’t a slouch in that department either, and while her ring skills are a major asset, she’s not a bad actress, as demonstrated in her recent two-parter with Virtue. That carries over here and she’s a primary reason why this video works… Read more »

So I felt pretty bad posting that highly critical review yesterday as it tends to be something I avoid doing. And this was a Spectrum video, a heroine I probably have an unhealthy obsession over. Surely there’s something I can find to like in it. Sure enough there is. I’d state that my criticism previously, harsh as it may be, still stands. The selling of peril by Spectrum was a tough one. However: First Spectrum is so beautiful and this is the best she’s looked in a video staring her. Just seeing her stretch out in the beginning of the… Read more »

I don’t think anyone should feel bad for posting an honest, well thought out review.
I also think it’s cool that you re-viewed your own feelings 🙂

I just read over this comment carefully (I’d skimmed it before making my own above) and I’d totally forgotten that Dr. Crumm was also the scientist behind Celestia’s “Trial”. It’s an embarrassing lapse on my part, given how often I’ve watched that episode. We also learned in that episode that Dominator had worked for him, as Spectrum states in the current video. She also worked with Filth back then, although they apparently had a falling out (Dominator objects strongly to being called Filth’s friend in “Corruption, Pt. 1”.) Weird as it may sound, I kinda want to know what happened… Read more »

I bought this video for the Dominator. She’s pretty much an automatic buy for me and I’m not disappointed, I really like this character and I’d love to see her in a stand alone story of her own (maybe an origin story?). She’s got some great moves and she oozes attitude. She sold the pain well too when she was, briefly, on the receiving end. Dominators destruction of Spectrum here doesn’t quite reach the heights of her destruction of Virtue in ‘Corruption’ but that’s probably due to the nature of the NGC championship; I do feel that the combat looses… Read more »

Wow. RyonaKing really went to town on Spectrum below…………. And unfortunately I agree with a lot of what he said. The situation I find myself having to write this is just the worst and I was tempted to say nothing but RyonaKing kinda liberated me here. I feel really horrid for piling it on my favorite actress like this but it just **whispers quietly** wasn’t a good performance by her. First I’m going to dissent here and state that I thought her facial expressions were great. I’d even argue they were amazing (though I’d admit a few moments were a… Read more »

What if you watch with the sound down? The sound on my computer is shit, so I pretty much watch all of these with the sound down. If the facial and physical reactions are okay… maybe fill in the sounds with your imagination? You’ve already bought it, right?

Let me guess: Spectrum doesn’t hold her crotch after that uppercut low blow, right?

She doesn’t, but her reaction isn’t too bad.

I must say I am very dissapointed for this one. And even though I appreciate the longer length, that I wish a lot of my favorites would have gotten an extension, it comes at an increased price with a video I did not like. I’ll just get straight to the point. I really disliked the way Spectrum sold the moves this vid. Kinda like “the submissions are so painful for her, she doesn’t even make a sound.” That doesn’t work for me at all. She makes very little noise when put into painful submissions, hell, I make more noise during… Read more »

I not totally sure but maybe NGC have the best videos in the world

They are definitely one of the best (if not THE best) as far as quality of production goes. I personally think they could be even better though if they just put more effort into other areas that they are lacking. I really wish they stepped up their combat aspect more. All of their combat sequences are always very light and very cautious, so it really comes off really fake looking. I’m not asking for them to really hit eat other, but when you have other producers having awesome fight and punishing sequences…then compare it to NGC, its a world of… Read more »

I understand where you’re coming from, I really do.

However, I believe that there needs to be at least 1 producer that has high productions values such as NGC that is ‘lighter’ than the rest. I miss episode structure that NGC had, as it was truly story driven and tend to actually have a more comic-book feel to it.

In other words, not all producers need to be focused in utterly destroying heroines. It is nice to have the option as a buyer/consumer to be able to pick a ‘lighter’ tone super heroine video. NGC, imo, is good as is.

Not saying they always have to destroy their heroines, but right now they tend to repeat the same formula for a lot of their videos. Their stories do vary, which is great, but the fight sequences are very similar and dull compared to others in the genre. Also when I said “lighter” previously, I was more so referring to the way they execute and sell their fight sequences and choreography. Sometimes I feel like when they do have fights, the attack, moves, etc aren’t executed believably. As someone who is a fan of pro wrestling as well, I’ve seen fake… Read more »

Don’t worry. As soon as you make the changes to making the heroines more heroic, a group of us are going to start complaining that there ISN’T enough peril anymore. lol In all seriousness though, I sorta understand where Paul is coming from in making the heroines more heroic/more powerful. However it’s also the case that in the NGC universe, the villains have tended to be more powerful than their heroine counterparts and it’s the girls’ powers that have tended to even the score. I personally am not advocating for anything here though and a look at reality shows that… Read more »

Maybe a pipe dream but I would love a heroine movie with the choreography and editing of a Jackie Chan flick. Whenever Jackie’s in the losing end of a fight in his movies it’s brutal and the hits are fast and hard in the editing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1PCtIaM_GQ

I voted for Spectrum to win on principle and preference. Sure, I love to see her be defeated, but we get the lose ending in Championship videos regardless of what the canonical outcome is. As Darkwrath notes, Spectrum is already 0-3, while Dominator is 4-0. In the interests of having more mixed records rather than a cluster of winners at the top and losers at the bottom, creating some sense of uncertainty about what the results will be in each fight, and to preserve the dignity of a warrior who should be more than a joke, I voted for Spectrum… Read more »

I absolutely love the fact that you said “preserve the dignity of a warrior who should be more than a joke” cause I totally agree. The reason why I’ve gotten so worked up about it is because the mental image I have of Spectrum is that of a mighty and powerful warrior. It is such a large part of her appeal for me. Being at the bottom of the leaderboard or near the bottom just shatters that image. Not blaming anyone for this state of affairs though. It is what it is. People vote for the winners and I figure,… Read more »

Once more I’m conflicted. So extremely excited that my girl Spectrum is back in action. I’ll keep on saying it. She is, without question, my absolute all-time favorite and I completely adore her. Probably a bit too much. At the same time, I’m going through bouts of depression since more likely than not, she’s about to suffer her fourth loss in a row. Three in a span of six months thus cementing her status as a jobber. I voted for her to win of course but………well I might as well have pissed into a gale-force wind for all the good… Read more »
