Audio/Video Quality: Jack's POV 8 was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The lighting was decent as always, never getting as bright as I tend to prefer but enhancing the look of the ladies without blinding them all the same and the scenes were all shot in the point of view (POV) method some of you are really into (I've become sort of a fan of the style thanks in large part to this series). Nick "The Wiz" P. was on editing this time and his skills surely helped make this another winner of a fuck flick by taking Robby's admittedly well shot raw footage and crafting scenes even better for the way they were made in post production. Robby has been on a roll for a long time with his continuing evolution of gonzo style; the POV projects showing the most improvement but all of the gonzo shot for the company appealing better for replay value than the generic product some of his industry peers seem content to shoot these days (offering a relatively high bitrate of mid 6 Mbps in the process). The fleshtones were accurate, the amount of distracting video noise or other elements appeared to be negligible, and the POV (point of view) camera angle was employed in every scene to allow the viewer the opportunity to fantasize about themselves in the place of the male performers. The audio was presented in the usual 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround (in 384 Kbps) but outside of the introductory commercial for the process, there appeared to be a little separation in the vocal tracks and the music wasn't a big issue here so you won't be showcasing your new home theatre with this one but it gave me the idea that someone touched it up a bit too.

Body of Review: Robby D. may well be considered the driving force over at Digital Playground in terms of his prolific output but he has done more than just open the company up to a world of gonzo possibilities in recent years; he has led their battle to compete for your porn dollars in ways that few thought likely only a couple of years ago when the company catered strictly to couples. Well, one of his increasingly popular series at the company these days is Jack's POV Series, where Robby shoots all the scenes as though he were getting actual sex that did not involve paying for it or his hand. The humor employed in most scenes is indicative of the larger Jack universe, albeit in smaller doses, and coming soon is the latest volume to enjoy, Jack's POV 8. The cover wisely chose uber hotty Jana Cova to sell additional products though the choice was interesting considering she only does other women, so my curiosity got the better of me and I gave this one a closer look. That said, there were no condoms used in the five scenes and here's a quick glimpse into what you can expect from the movie's scenes by cast and action:
Scene One: Honey Dejour, a youthful gal with a heart of gold, was up first as part of a scam where Jack tricked her into giving Jerry a mercy fuck; giving her the impression that his girlfriend left him for another man. She entered the bedroom where he sobbed like a wimp, consoling him in a way that only a gal wearing loose fitting clothing with nipple erections can do. Her acting skills had her laughing at the scenario, Jerry getting a bit pushy as he attempted to get some play from the giggling girl. She looked off camera a bit (probably asking herself how she let Robby talk her into this stuff) but after some playfully coy teasing, she began to stroke him; the camera staying with the general POV angle even if the scene dynamic was altered a bit from the usual approach used in the series. Once she started undressing though, the tempo of the pacing sped up with the gal jerking him off and blowing him really well as she played to his ego. She really wasn't my idea of a hotty but the way the scene was handled certainly added something to it for me, even acknowledging the play acting being so obvious. The hummer got better with time and led to her impaling herself vaginally on his fully erect chubby, rocking back and forth as she sought her own release before his. She was an active cock rider, panting enough to be believable but not too much and the end result was the gal getting all juicy before he rubbed out a load of population pudding to her face. In all then, it was a solid opening scene that surprised me. Yum!
Scene Two: Natasha Nice, a cute brunette with huge breasts, was up next claiming to be 18 years old as she played with her chest for the camera. Her cool hazel eyes were appealing too but I'm not going to hose you to say that was all I cared about either. She got no verbal feedback from the camera as she masturbated on the bed, Marco Banderas/Duato being the lucky stud to start fingering her moist pubic mound (and feeding her the juices) before she enthusiastically slobbed his knob. For such a youthful cutie, she gave a good hummer, covering the entire shaft with saliva as she got it "all slobbery" (her words). The hand to gland combat style added to the pleasure and some titty fucking came into play before she mounted the rod. She took it slow as she stretched to accommodate his big cock, impaling herself with little effort in almost no time as he felt her large breasts up roughly. It came across as realistic when she claimed to have reached orgasm during his fingering expedition but she was on fire while riding the guy; her breasts swaying all over the place as their bodies literally slapped together. She then sucked him to completion and appeared to swallow his semen, smiling all the while before the camera faded out. Nice!
Scene Three: Carmel Moore, the English babe that has been in various Jack flicks of late, was up next as she came to move her car for work (it being a running theme that Jack had to move his car for her to get out of the spot) in the apartment. She discussed music videos and the way her facial expressions changed with Jack's words was really funny (another reason why critics on other websites might want to actually watch the movie before commenting); the playful banter changing when the topic switched to her social life. She made it clear that she was willing to do anything to get into music videos, fortunate Scott Nails taking the place of jack in the sexual portions of the scene (her nod & wink routine was classic by the way). She began stroking his cock and sucking him off at least as passionately as any of the other ladies in the movie had done, her experience level commented on as being pretty extensive. I really liked her dirty talk and contrary to what some think, Robby's banter with her added to the humor as she slobbed his knob so seductively. Her eye contact was great and she began riding his dick vaginally. Initially, she was too passive and that lost it some points but the dirty talk continued to get me in the mood so her getting more into it as it progressed was a pleasant change of pace. She did several positions with him before using hand & mouth to drain his balls dry, relieving all that sexual tension with a splash to her face. Whew!
Scene Four: Jana Cova, the beautiful Czech Republic gal showcased on the front cover, was up next and while I had hoped she'd be in a lot more than one scene, she is always a crowd pleaser. She met Jack at the door in a grey robe of sorts, showing she had nothing on underneath as she demanded to borrow his camera. He was bummed out that she didn't want him (in the biblical sense at least) but she did a little tease video in POV for him to jerk off to just the same. Seeing her diddle herself never gets old for me, her verbal coaxing enhancing the moment too as she continued to masturbate. There was little camera movement here, the idea being some degree of consistency that she was alone on the couch. That Jana could gyrate her hips so seductively and glisten with a light sheath of sweat but appear like such a nasty gal with angelic overtones gave the scene a lot more replay value than if she had worked with another gal (as usual). The toy use was pretty good too but not quite as solid given the static nature of the camera showing her in a medium shot (there was a frame skip too; likely a function of my burnt screener copy but I'll keep you posted). The shot did move to a close up towards the end though and her ample ass proved to be the perfect target, the firm ass cheeks spread wide enough for a good look as she continued to use the toy to full effect vaginally; the scene ending with a less than explicit look at her upper torso while she rode (or pretended to ride) it. Sweet!
Scene Five: Veronique Vega, a sexy Latina reminding me of a young Jasmine Byrne, was up last as she begged Jack for a role playing in his music videos. That Jack was played by German Chris Charming was poked fun at, the gal not understanding a word he said and wondering where his tattoos had gone to as she stripped his pants off to play with his cock. She didn't ask too many more questions when she saw the size of his dick, sucking just the tip and balls as she questioned his identity a few more times but never stopping her oral assault on his rod. The playful head led to her taking care of him with her pussy too, the gal climbing onboard it to ride like he was Seattle Slew at the Kentucky Derby (given his size, the imagery was not far off either). The couch and chair became the focal point settings of the ride, her dirty talk showing a sense of bravado that her pussy took great pains to match (she had to warm up and even then had trouble with his sizable penis). The scene ended with a belly pop of decent proportions, her hopes at gaining access into the music video world strung along as much as the main Jack series would have done.
Summary: Jack's POV 8 by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was another title of theirs that combined humor and heated sexual antics; the ladies all in fine form as they stood up to the test of time in their scenes. I would have liked to see more of Jana in action but her lengthy solo scene had the kind of replay value that I've come to appreciate about her work, the other gals showing a love of cock that proved to have substantial strokability too. In short then, Jack's POV 8 was not just about the many lovely charms of hotty Jana Cova but also the rest of the ensemble cast that gave so much of themselves; earning a rating of Highly Recommended in the process. If you want flat supermarket lighting, circus act sex, and a bunch of third tier performers you'll want to look somewhere else but if you want the kind of quality offering Robby and DP are known for, you know where to go when this comes out later this month. Good work!
