Extras: The best extra was the nudity laden Behind the Scenes feature lasting 30:22 minutes as shot by "Dex Magnum". There were bits from the scenes showing Claudio actively directing the cast members, some sex, and a moderate amount of nudity in between the usual interviews and tidbits. There was also a photogallery, some trailers, and a cumshot recap for those that care.

Audio/Video Quality: Whatabooty 7 was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen it was shot in by directors Maestro Claudio for Red Light District, this standard definition release sporting an MPEG-2 codec with 480p resolution. The lighting was fairly decent in most scenes here, helping minimize the visual issues popping up at times. The composition of the shots seemed to enhance the look of most of the ladies, at least when not cropping off heads and such. There were no obvious compression artifacts (though the bitrate hovered around the 3.4 Mbps range) so even the mastering of the DVD was handled well and some of you will appreciate the lack of the formerly displayed watermark of the company logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen during the show. The 2.0 Dolby Digital stereo (in 192 Kbps using a 48 kHz sampling rate) was in English but the actual audio appeared to be shot in monaural with the processing added later on (in the mastering part of the process). The vocals were generally clear but lacked any separation or dynamic range so this is an area that Claudio needs to work more on (just like most of his associates in the industry). The music starting each scene was really generic but that was probably the only real surprise for me in terms of negative technical matters, the rest being pretty decently handled.
Body of Review: Maestro Claudio is one of the handful of directors left at Red Light District these days, sharing the spotlight with Juan Cuba, Mark Wood, and a few others that have remained loyal during these tough economic times. His latest fuck flick to make it to me was Whatabooty 7, a series that has always been short on anal sex but big on ripe, fleshy ass. Going in to watching it, I wondered what Claudio was going to do to make his mark or if he was just going to keep to the basics, essentially rubbing one out between his bigger projects. With names like Corina James and Katja Kassin, I felt there should be enough to merit my attention despite any major new draws cast for the movie. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Mz. Booty with Christian
Scene One: Corina Jayden, the bountiful beauty featured on the front cover, was up first with moper Mike Adriano, the gal renting the apartment from the guy after they negotiated an arrangement. She pointed out that his initial terms were pretty strict so she dropped her drawers as a means of convincing him that her terms were better. The extremely lame conversation aside, her ample sample was impressive for men that like curves, her pink thong riding her ass crack really well during the short bout of tease. They kissed and he pawed her, soon orally servicing her front and back. Corina kept looking straight at the camera though, ruining the illusion of the fantasy and showing how the shot was being framed off kilter. Once Mike finished going down on her though, she slobbed his knob with some enthusiasm, a bit more oral ensuing before they boned vaginally in a couple of positions without chemistry or enthusiasm (to her credit though, Corina was an active rider). Corina did do some taste testing between positions but the ending nut of genetic juice to her sweet ass was lackluster, Mike appearing to work too much these days for a proper pop shot.
Scene Two: Kailyn Carter, a thick blond gal wearing glasses, a thick pink sweater, and a skirt, was up next as she walked in on a masturbating loser by the name of Frankie Young. She fussed at him since she was shocked and things settled down when he showed her the porno magazine he was using to get off with. The dialogue was once again lame and stilted, Kailyn masturbating as he played with her tits and ate her out on the couch. Her hummer was nothing special and her titty fuck was about the same, her passive vaginal ride and fake porn screaming weakening the scene a lot for me. To her credit though, she did swallow the population pudding he launched at her mouth.
Scene Three: Katja Kassin, a long time booty queen from Germany, was up next showing she was still fairly lean as she teased outside by the pool and on the deck. Her colorful bathing suit crept up her ass but unlike the energetic teases of years past, she seemed to be going through the motions a bit. Talon was her boyfriend here, Katja trying to convince him to blow off business in order to play with her, Katja's ample sample of an ass certainly inviting despite her attitudinal changes from her peak several years ago. The tease led to them going inside the house where she inhaled his cock mechanically, Talon throat fucking her before they vaginally banged in several positions. She did some taste testing but the lack of chemistry and true passion carried on this far into the scene as Katja watched the camera directly. It wasn't a bad performance though, his spew launched into her mouth for swallowing. Katja has cut back on how many movies she has made for a few years now so I was happy to see her keeping in touch with the industry but I wanted more.
Scene Four: Karmen Kennedy, a chunky brunette with a stripper-next-door look to her, was up next with fourth tier moper Frankie Young, the pair discussing how lame his girlfriend was in bed (which is a poor idea for a guy to do, it showing his lack of character). She seduced him using her fleshy ass, the guy sucking it and rubbing it as she looked at the camera repeatedly, her blue panties pulled up her ass crack as he serviced her. Initially, she kept her dress on as he ate her out, Karmen enjoying his small cock in the garage setting with a modestly active ride on the floor (what a gentleman!) after she gave him a quick knob slobbing. They finished up in the house doing some doggy style vaginal work, his small nut landing on her ass cheek.
Scene Five: Mz. Booty, a very heavy black gal with a sloppy phat ass, was up last as Christian played bartender in a makeshift bar (it was clearly a house bar), the gal convincing him to give her another drink up in his room. The horribly wooden dialogue aside, the sex was okay even if she did not appeal to me physically in the slightest. I like bigger gals when they have some tone to them but she did not meet that description, their oral efforts revealing a lot more stretch marks than usual before the titty fucking and vaginal work took place. They seemed to have some fun together, it is reported that Christian will fuck anything that moves and be happy, the pop shot landing on her huge rear.
Summary: Whatabooty 7 by director Maestro Claudio for Red Light District showed a lot of freshman technical errors I attribute as much to his supporting crew as anything, the biggest problem being the lack of energy and chemistry between the performers. I have long been a fan of Katja Kassin and her better work and there is no denying that Corina Jayden was a major cutie but there just was so little spark most of the time that I'd be remiss if I labeled this one as more than a Skip It. The limited amounts of strokability, fun factor, and replay value killed it for me and reminded me that there are far better titles floating around from the company (and its competition) worthy of our collective attention so why waste time and money on half assed efforts like this one? In short, Whatabooty 7 was more like "what a snore" so the potential untapped made it one to pass up.
