I don't even know what to call it

I'm giving this a rating of 3. I'm taking away stars because it was ridiculously long and it's silly to expect people to watch a porn for 3 solid hours. I also felt that there wasn't enough variety in the vanilla sex that the movie presented.

Plot

The basic pretense is that this movie loosely is based on a true story. Basically, it's the story of the rise to pornstar-dom of Gia, and the subsequent fall thereafter. Gia is discovered and begins her career in porn. She meets a guy during her first major porno that she makes, and has a short relationship with him before the industry makes demands of her that end up with the two of them breaking up. Later, Gia gets a girlfriend whom asks her to quit acting in porn. Gia moves on to directing to respect her girlfriends wishes, but is steadily falling into a life of drugs. Gia needs to make another movie, because she's not doing well on bills and such. It causes an argument with her girlfriend, and the drug usage comes to the surface between them. It is later revealed that Gia is not just on drugs, but is becoming very sick. She eventually passes away, ending the movie.

Sex Scenes

There are 8 total scenes, with a bit of actual variety to them. Sunny does her first DP in this film, though I don't really consider it DP since it was with a toy. There is anal, and of course your typical sex that you expect from porn in here. The scenes tend to portray the actual time frame and mentality of Gia's life. Other than the anal, and some sensuality in the sex, most of it was what you would expect from a porno though.

Some interesting notes

The film is fictional to an extent, but bits and pieces about how the industry works and some of the story are factual. The portrait of Gia's life is not how the porn industry necessarily works now though, so that's something to keep in mind while watching this video. The people interviewed are listed correctly as far as I know, and are real people that are being interviewed. The interviews are from the AVN awards, but are not depicting the life of the actual girl who plays Gia in this movie. The interviews are about Gia, and some other stars as well.

I feel like everyone had pretty good chemistry together. All of the scenes were pretty good, albeit mostly vanilla. The girl on girl scenes were pretty good too, which I usually find lacking.
Experience
Honestly I had to watch it in sections. The movie is three hours, which is a hefty amount of time for a porno. Personally I thought the storyline was pretty good, and the acting was decent too. My only issue is time constraints on trying to watch a movie that is 3 hours long. I broke it into 3 nights of watching an hour each.

I won't say it was boring, because it wasn't. But it didn't hold my attention very well. I think that was due in part to the length of time the producers were expecting me to watch the movie for. I can't sit still for 3 hours to play on a computer video game or facebook, much less to watch a porno.

There also wasn't a terrible amount of variety in the sex itself. The only major scene difference I noticed was one couple was very sensual and passionate towards the end, and I felt like their scene wasn't as cookie cutter as the rest. This is not to say the scenes were bad, because I didn't feel as though they were. They were just predictable.
