Length: 96:37 minutes
Jana Cova and Sammie Rhodes
Date of Production: 7/2/2007
Extra's: There were the usual high definition trailers to Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, Pirates I, Cheerleaders, Babysitters, Island Fever 3, Jack's Teen America, and Island Fever 4 and photogallery but the best extra was the 10:54 minute Behind the Scenes feature shot by Jamal Johnson (who was just "out of jail" per Mark) and edited by T. Baggs. It had some of the amusing pop up videos, a bit of goofing around, and plenty of Jana Cova (though Robby's insistence at trying to get her working with men was nearly as comical). There appeared to be a missing or deleted scene given the footage with Jerry and Cody Lane but it was not on my advance screener copy so I don't know what happened to it.
Jana Cova and Brianna Love!

Audio/Video Quality: Jana Cova: Lust Blu-ray was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as envisioned by director Celeste for Digital Playground in the usual AVC codec reserved for high definition releases (the resolution sporting the 1080p we all like so much). The high end equipment and skilled crew of regulars assisted director of photography Robby to make this release look really sharp; losing the artistic style that doesn't always work so well for me. In fact, the technical matters showed Robby's influence serving nicely to ground the scenes with less of the arty farty filters and effects that the director sometimes uses. The lighting was generally solid here, reducing the grain, video noise, and other defects that sometimes arise in making porn on a budget; favoring a clear focus in some cases that I was convinced worked very well. The way the scenes were shot and edited was markedly similar in the scenes; the composition favoring the ladies and looking like Robby had no constraints this time. Willem Default was the editor and together with some of the post production effects added in, added the kind of visual texture that made the release stand out from some of Celeste's other works (in a good way though). The DVD mastering revealing no compression artifacts; with the bitrate for the visuals hovering around the mid 19.6 Mbps this time with few flaws but not as low in resolution as previous efforts in related showcase efforts. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English using a 448 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate; over twice that of most porn made these days, with a minimalist leaning that seemed unique in most ways to productions outside of the Jack series, with the vocals always dominating the audio track as I like it. There wasn't much separation between the channels, if any outside of the intermittent music, but the ladies were always clearly heard here.
Body of Review: Jana Cova was my favorite contract gal at Digital Playground before they parted ways awhile back. Her beauty and sensual nature certainly played a large part of that but some of it was also due to her sticking to her limits without being pushed to do what she did not want to do. I don't get to see many movies by her now that she is rarely appearing in post company porn but some of her previously shot footage by director Celeste is still popping up from time to time, making it even more interesting for me to watch. I know that P2 is the most sought after movie by the company at this writing but it was still pleasing to see Jana Cova: Lust Blu-ray before the other media outlets given my attachment to the leading lady herself. The movie was a series of six erotic vignettes with lovely Jana starring in three of them, always partnering up with other ladies, but still giving a wide variety of fans what they want to see with a nice selection of other gals such as Bobbi Starr, Brianna Love, Sammie Rhodes and others. There was no circus act sex and the sexual athleticism seen in some gonzo titles of late was also absent but it still had all the better attributes of a Celeste release with the down to earth technical values of Robby's works propping it up. If that sounds good to you, here is a brief description of the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Jana Cova, the major cutie featured on the front cover, was up first as herself, blond Marlie Moore and curvy Andie Valentino established as slavering fangirls wanting to bed her. They approached jana in the luxurious setting and soon tossed her on the bed, covering her from head to toe in kisses and caresses while keeping their slutty attire intact. Both of them wanted to taste some Jana juice so they fingered her pussy and used toys on her, Jana admittedly the only one of the three to look like she was having fun (the other two providing some solid mechanical energy though). As the scene progressed, Jana seemed to bring out the best in them though, giving the munch-fest some legs that I did not think it would have at first, the emphasis on toys not the best way to go but still showing Jana as both a heated recipient as well as a teacher of tricks to the pair.
Scene Two: Maya Gates, a sultry Romanian with an all natural body and jet black hair, was up next as she became the object of desire for Jean Claude Batiste to seek out using his nose. He sniffed around for her and ended up between her spread legs, eating her out as she help herself wide open. Maya was also masturbating with a vibrator at the time, plunging it deep inside her ass and sucking it clean, but Jean was intent on fingering her and getting some head from the talented vixen as well. She inhaled his meat pipe aggressively and this led to them screwing very heatedly, the vaginal pounding leading to anal action in short order. She panted as he drilled her and I was surprised at how quickly he rubbed out a nut of genetic juice to her face, taking it down a notch for me as I wanted more than was provided (the general idea being longer scenes are better).
Scene Three: Jana Cova, wearing a pink and white outfit that barely covered her up, was then in bed with frisky Sammie Rhodes, the gal similarly dressed as the pair frolicked about. Jana sported kinky hair this time and noticed Sammie was dripping wet due to their bouncing around, Jana chastising her friend and taking charge by stuffing her panties in Sammie's mouth as well as bending her over her knee to paddle. Sammie's reddened ass cheeks looked hot and Jana fingered her increasingly wet snatch, moving to a clear toy to penetrate her popular pal. The pair showed some personal chemistry and the couple moved to the bathroom where Sammie orally serviced Jana. Jana looked great and Sammie was surprisingly active here, the two lizard kissing to finish up. Nice!
Scene Four: Leigh Livingston, a curvy redhead wearing a cute bikini (white and black), was up next in bed with Ben English as he looked for his keys while she sucked her lollipop. Ben thought she knew where his keys were so he made a deal to satisfy her in exchange for them. Using the lollipop as a sexual device, he played with her breasts and ate her out, Leigh reciprocating with a blowjob showing her comfort zone falling just short of his meaty manhood after some modestly active vaginal fucking. Leigh showed some potential though and I'd like to see her once she learns a few more tricks, she just came across as a bit too passive for me this time. The scene ended when Ben popped a huge nut of population pudding on her head, Leigh laughing as she sucked her lollipop once more.
Scene Five: Jana Cova, dressed up in flashy style, tried out a bunch of shoes belonging to curvy Brianna Love in the bedroom next. Neither wore panties and Brianna started taking Jana with her hand, rolling up Jana's muff buffer skirt to gain greater access to her pussy and ass. Brianna was dressed down but still looking quite fuckable, the minor hair pulling and spanking leading to the ladies kissing believably well, their chemistry nearly as evident as Jana's previous scene. Jana was a net receiver of pleasure this time but she also deployed some toys on Brianna, working them in such a manner that I knew she had experimented previously. It was a second scene with Jana in the movie that I enjoyed even if too heavy on toy use.
Scene Six: Bobbi Starr, a current anal princess of sorts, was up last with Tommy Gunn and Tony DeSergio, the men playing Marco Polo with her as she tried to catch them while she was blindfolded. Her neon pink skirt flew up and her breasts were barely covered by her flimsy top, Bobbi catching them to start inhaling meat pipe while the men took turns going down on her. Bobbi active slobbed their knobs one at a time while the other guy would crew her pussy (alternating with each other). There was some passive anal at the end of the scene that gave me the impression she was getting off on but the kid glasses she had put on looked silly and having seen her do much more with a cock up her ass, I was left hanging somewhat. The yelling was the capper that killed it for me though, her screams sounding more like she was either being beaten or reading some of Roger's reviews (just kidding), with punishment would be worse left up to you. The men spewed in her mouth at the end and she showed a need for seed but as I said, this was not her best work to date.
Summary: Jana Cova: Lust Blu-ray by director Celeste for Digital Playground was a solid tribute to Jana Cova in that two of her scenes were very appealing to me and she looked as beautiful as ever. I am firmly of the belief that the company elevated her status tremendously and understand why they parted ways, but will always appreciate how much mileage they got out of the European beauty queen before she left them. The movie itself lacked any substantive extras and the replay value was not as high as I prefer so I rated it as a Rent It but fans of Jana will want a copy for their very own given how hot she looked here. In short, Jana Cova: Lust reaffirms the idea that Jana was well worth being given numerous projects of her own, getting placed in half the scenes of the movie to show the strength of her appeal to some of us.As far as the high definition upgrade was concerned, like many similar projects, the visuals provided more intensity to the action and the added details certainly made Jana Cova look as good as she could on the small screen, only getting to see her live being a better experience so check it out.
