Cast: Paulina James, Scott Nails, Poppy Morgan, Marco Banderas/Duato, Jana Cova, Carli Banks, Katja Kassin, Chris Charming, Cassie Young
Length: 107.5 minutes
Date of Production: 10/1/2006
Extra's: The best extra this time was the 11 minute long Behind the Scenes feature by Jamal "Jizzman" Johnson (allegedly Robby's simpler cousin). While he may not be as skilled as Max Maximo, Jamal had some fun with the ladies and the comic interludes (the result of Nick, Willem, and/or Joey at work by the looks and sounds of it) were as silly but appreciated as ever (picking on Judas Priest, Robby's propensity to feel up the ladies on and off camera, and "Jamal Playground"?!?) and seeing more footage of Jana is always a good thing in my book. There was a photogallery, a cum shot recap, and trailers for movies such as Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge (Blu-ray), Island Fever 4 Blu-Ray, Jack's POV 1 Blu-Ray, Cheerleaders BR, Babysitters BR, Pirates BR, Contract Star BR, and Island Fever 3 BR.
Audio/Video Quality: Jana Cova: Sexual Freak 4Blu-ray was presented in the usual 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as shot by director Robby D. (with Scott K working the second camera) for Digital Playground, the 1080i resolution and AVC codec enhancing the high definition production more than a little this time (especially on my 60" television). The movie was yet another fusion of gonzo and art, allowing for the ladies to be presented in a unique manner visually as the camera work enhanced their looks considerably. The lighting limited any grain, video noise, or other distracting issues; showing critics like yours truly that a touch of artistic vision can go a long way and not ruin a heated scene. The DVD was mastered nicely too, with no compression artifacts or other troubles getting in the way as the ladies engaged in various sexual antics very nicely. The editing by Joey "The Man" Pulgadas was as superior as ever; giving Nick and Kurt a run for their money with the way he offered up the scenes here. The audio was presented in a 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround English but the separation between the channels was rare and the dynamic range was largely limited to the often obscure but catchy music. There were a few spots where I thought QC missed a shout or two by Robby (around 47:42 for example) but the only real complaint I had was that the ladies weren't all readily employing dirty talk in the scenes.

Body of Review: Robby D. has recently been touted as one of the finest directors in porn by the "Johnny Come Lately" critics, apparently they were too busy fawning over some other flavor of the week directors during the last few years until he caught their eye with his extensive body of work at Digital Playground. That said, unlike so many of his peers that find a specific style and stick to it religiously, he tries new things on a regular basis to expand the boundaries of the medium; serving as mentor to friends also trying to break free as well as showing the world that his vision of a better world for porn did not have to be sacrificed for expedience or cost savings as they have claimed in the past. Robby's latest work is another example of his ability to provide a different kind of gonzo, the kind where a formula is tossed out in favor of crafting a special glimpse into some very special ladies, in this case, the beautiful and sexy Jana Cova with Jana Cova: Sexual Freak 4 Blu-ray. The movie was a series of vignettes and while Jana was only in two scenes, the majority of material in the movie was decently played out, giving fans of all sorts something to appreciate. If this sounds good to you, here's a more in depth look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Paulina James, a sexy newcomer to porn, was up first after she caught pervert Scott Nails sniffing and playing with her underwear on the bed. While most women would flee screaming from him, she was enticed to the point where she began rubbing herself by the doorway; the perfect catch for the kinky fellow. She played along and started rubbing him, the choppy editing and music fusing into a jazzy sort of dynamic as she fueled his fetish before slobbing his knob. While I don't have a lot of experience in this area of expertise, she seemed quite capable of combining the panty play and oral sex in a heated manner; Scott getting in on the action by going down on the playful sprite as though he was willing to pay her back for her sexy foreplay. She wasn't the most active cock rider of the cast but her youthful look and willingness to try new things certainly added to the replay value and her chemistry with Scott was very nice indeed. The scene ended with him rubbing out a load to her abdomen and her providing some post coital sucking; not a terrific scene but a fun one to start the show.
Scene Two: Poppy Morgan, a cutie from Yorkshire, England, was up next in bed playing an anal retentive shrew to medical attendant Marco Banderas/Duato. Acquiescing to her demands, he began changing her bed until she decided he'd be better at servicing her meat flap pussy. He ate her out in such a manner that she shut up and started purring, a marked change of pace from the persona she was providing initially (if only women were that easy to manipulate in real life...sigh). His mouth to muff resuscitation worked wonders for the heat level of the scene too as she sat on his face and started grinding in approval; showing her own oral skills were nothing to sneeze at. The hummer went well and the two began bumping uglies in no time, the gal actively riding him in her pussy and ass as she made faces like the kid from the original Exorcist. If you ask me, she appeared to be getting off at least once before he popped some population pudding on her chest, ending a better scene.
Scene Three: Jana Cova, the fabulous looking hotty plastered all over the front DVD cover, was up next as the boss of a lazy maid played by cutie Carli Banks. Carli was talking on the cell phone about her sexual exploits when Jana surprised her; jumping on the couch beside her and fussing at her about her love of cock. Jana pointed out that the only thing Carli should be talking about in Jana's house was wet pussy, giving her some as she felt the erstwhile maid up. The two began licking and feeling each other up, the lovely Jana dominating her new friend in a passionate manner. I was surprised that Robby's voice was left in during the scene (only a little bit) but the visual appeal of Jana getting all flustered in a lesbian scene will always have a certain appeal to me as both gals seemed to enjoy each other to the fullest. Carli even rimmed Jana (admittedly, I would too if given the chance); showing that perfect pucker a sweet oral time as she licked and rubbed it aggressively. Fans might also appreciate the technical DP Jana took with two toys; while not the real deal, it still made me squeal as Jana seemed to lose it a little in the process. Jana got some licks in as well, making it a fine scene for fans to enjoy repeatedly.
Scene Four: Katja Kassin, the German anal queen that has launched a lot of loads in recent years, was up next as she dominated countryman Chris Charming; handcuffing him and blindfolding him in a chair while walking about in her interesting (not revealing) attire. As her ass ate her bathing suit, she brandished a riding crop to instill fear in his heart as to how she was going to use it, hitting him a few times before stripping to sit on his lucky face. He enjoyed the taste of her ass and she got off having someone service her for a change, leading to her sensually working his cock with her riding crop and mouth very playfully. The tease of the scene alone was worth checking out the DVD but her oral skills were top notch and that elevated the heat between them (as much as further demonstrated the chemistry they have long shared). Katja was also looking exceptionally fit here, having shed a few pounds in recent months to find a new look that allowed her to even more actively bounce on cock (even one as large as his). Once freed of his bonds, he was allowed to fuck her tight ass too, drilling her like he was on fire and her dirty talk making it even more of a winner. By the time the scene ended, their roles were reversed; Katja wearing the blindfold as she took his load orally. Whew!
Scene Five: Cassie Young, a sexy lean blonde with a nice ass and pretty smile (not the horse face the BTS would lead you to believe she had), was up next as the model to photographer Scott Nails. The music was like something out of a early 1970's Godzilla movie (think: Vs Hedorah) but she didn't care as she seduced him orally with considerable skill. The hummer was nice but it was her vaginal riding skills that set him on edge, bouncing back on his cock very actively as he tried to hammer away into her tight little cookie. By the time he rubbed out his large load onto her face, she was raw down there, the gal savoring the experience even though it ended far too quickly.
Scene Six: Jana Cova, looking as sweet as ever, wore red stripper shoes as she aggressively sucked a large black dildo situated on a chair. She then used it to rub her cookie, masturbating and tasting it as she eyed the camera in a knowing fashion. It could have lasted ten times longer and not been enough but it was quite a strokable bit of action. Yum!
Summary: Jana Cova: Sexual Freak 4 Blu-ray by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was far from a perfect movie but even the least reasonable straight male viewer should consider this to rate a Recommended or better given the kind of action expected. I'll admit that I hoped for three full hours of Jana doing tease and other women but some of the B/G scenes were actually very well done too and I'm glad they rated enough to stay in the movie. In short, Jana Cova: Sexual Freak 4 was full of chemistry, energy, and provided fans of hardcore action and Jana Cova alike with some serious stroke material to enjoy while we wait for her next titles to come out on Blu-ray. In terms of the high definition upgrade, this one really did manage to look better, perhaps the guy mastering it paying a bit more attention than usual, but ultimately, some gals look better in higher resolution and Jana Cova is one of them.
