Extras: There were no extras worth detailing this time, just a pop shot recap, eight trailers, a slide show and photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: Jack's POV 14 was presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen using a 480p resolution with the standard definition MPEG-2 encoding as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. The director has been responsible for a wealth of excellent movies in recent years (though some admittedly weaker efforts too), generally using the alias of "Jack" to project his mindset into various situations. This was another in the series that focused on POV (point of view) camera angles, allowing the viewer to imagine they are the ones involved with the ladies. The scenes appeared to be shot with a single camera and minimal lighting, some shadows entering into the picture in every scene but the majority of time showing that the crew behind the camera knew what they were doing. Rather than try for technical excellence this time, Robbie appeared to go for a more spontaneous look, a number of glitches left into the picture seemingly on purpose to provide that home movie look he is renowned for shooting. In any case, the SD version of the movie had some compression artifacts and what appeared to be edge enhancement, the moiré barely noticeable though the attempts at shooting from a dark room into bright light bothersome but Nick "The Man" P. tidied it up really well. Still, not everyone prefers the flat lighting other companies offer up so this would be for those of you that want more texture in your porn. The video bitrate varied significantly but when I spot checked it, the numbers typically bounced around the 5.7 Mbps mark, often going higher or somewhat lower for those who care. The audio was presented in a post-production added 5.1 Dolby Digital English with a 48 kHz sampling rate and 384 Kbps bitrate, none of the vocals showing any separation though the score seemed to during the opening and closing. Aurally speaking then, it was about average which is expected from Robbie's gonzo works or the stuff he handles in the Celeste branded titles.

Body of Review: Digital Playground is perhaps the most successful production company in porn these days, their winning formula of letting director Robby D. loose to unleash his creative perversions in various incarnations working more often than not. That they have also been the only company to fully embrace the advances in technology such as Blu-ray sure hasn't hurt my opinion of them either, regardless of reported sales. Their latest title making it my way is the upcoming Jack's POV 14, the movie to be released at the end of next month on July 28. Like Jack's POV 13, this one features a contract hotty, this time the sexy little Riley Steele, complete with her enhanced chest and crystal clear blue eyes. As expected, most of the footage shot was done in the point of view fashion so the viewer could fantasize about boning the babes himself, though there was again a departure from holding too strictly to this approach for those purists demanding 100% POV. In any case, with a cast including Alexis Texas, Kristina Rose, Codi Carmichael, Nicole Ray, and Riley Steele, the bets that this fuck flick would trip my trigger remained very high. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Alexis Texas, the bountiful babe with the fleshy ass so many people adore, was up first as she paraded around in her sexy black lingerie for Scott Nails. She was apprehensive at first but he encouraged her to tease a bit, her bending over altering the pitch of his voice as she rubbed herself so successfully. The rubbing led to her slobbing his knob in a seductive manner, Alexis focusing on her task as though she really wanted to get him off, even jerking him off as she inhaled the meat pipe. Alexis spent some time sucking his balls too but the eye contact showed she wanted him inside of her pussy so she jumped on to ride him, aggressively bouncing up and down with some intermittent taste testing. Alexis Texas has come a long way since her first performances and this one was one of her best to date, the gal actively bouncing on Scott's cock in both cowgirl positions before the modified missionary milked his genetic juice all over her crotch. Alexis also used dirty talk to enhance the scene and gave him a post coital hummer, her ass in the air as she savored his manly taste (an abrupt edit giving her a second, though far smaller, mouth pop as she knelt before him). Whew!
My favorite view of Riley Steele
Scene Two: Codi Carmichael, a curvy blond with a great smile, was up next as Mick Blue showed off his new videocamera, her body barely held inside of her flimsy sundress. She appeared to be shy initially, it did not take long before she was spreading her legs to give him a panty shot, her implants next up on the tease agenda. Mick felt her up and her clothing fell to the wayside, her thong remaining as she aggressively sucked his pecker silly. Codi added in some titty fucking too, joyously coming out of her shell to work him over before he banged her vaginally. There seemed to be an abundance of lube this time but it could have just meant she was getting excited at the action, her panting demonstrating her desire to clean his cock of her juices orally. Before they went back to boning, Codi jerked him off with her feet (for the foot fetish crowd) but she seemed most at home with the basics; sucking and fucking his rod actively until he busted a nut of population pudding into her mouth. Yum!
though this shot of Riley Steele is pretty nice too!
Scene Three: Nicole Ray, a leaner but still attractive blond wearing a flimsy pink nighty, was up next as she teased her way into the bedroom to start sucking off the cock of Scott Nails. While I prefer a LOT more tease, this helped mix things up a little bit, Nicole concentrating her efforts on his cock as she looked up at him in the bed. There was a little more tease after the initial hummer, Nicole masturbating before returning to her oral duties. This led to her actively riding him vaginally, the oral continuing between bouts of boning as I like it. He eventually came on her ass and she scooped some up to taste it (Nicole fingering her asshole as well) but despite his attempt to go for another round as in the earlier scene, the scene cut short.
Scene Four: Kristina Rose, currently one of the industry's leading anal princesses, was up next in bed wearing a sheer purple outfit and some cat ears while she acted kittenish for partner Mick Blue. He rubbed her the right way and she enjoyed his use of a wand vibrator, soon sucking him off with a degree of excitement. Kristina actively worked his rod orally while keeping the eye contact going, jerking him off into her mouth until it was time to fuck. She was a lot of fun during the vaginally penetrative sex, her dirty talk enhancing the moment more than a little for me. Her fleshy rump massaged his cock before he was allowed to insert it, the ripples displayed showing just how heated she could be as eye candy. The oral then led to her taking him inside of her perfect pucker, the anal not slowing her down in the slightest. Kristina rode that cock hard and fast, her facial expressions delightful to watch before the inevitable load of spew was drained from his dragon to be swallowed. The chemistry and passion here were the best of the movie, the scene at least as solidly put together as the Alexis Texas scene I adored so much.
Scene Five: Riley Steele, the hotty on the front cover and current contract performer, was up last and fans of lean babes will find her much to their liking. She walked in wearing a black dress that barely covered her body, her labia hanging just below the hemline as Scott Nails felt her up. I admit that I like gals with more curves and those that are more sexually aggressive but Scott sure seemed to adore stuffing his head between her ass cheeks to savor her juices. He continued his oral assault as she masturbated, her shtick as the passive little waif once again coming out to play. In a turnabout from the usual way the scenes are shot for the series, Scott set the camera down a few times to capture the couple going at it, his best work seen when the camera appeared to be held by him instead of on the sidelines. Riley masturbated and soon started blowing him, her eyes shining brightly as she worked a couple of inches into her mouth with glee. He was far too large for her to handle and Scott eventually traded places so he could eat her out, moving to some vaginal boning where she was mostly passive in how she reacted to his pecker penetrating his tiny pussy. While following Kristina is a difficult thing, Riley has made her living off a different dynamic, allowing men to control her sexuality rather than openly (and aggressively) going at it, so while my personal preference would have had her showing more enthusiasm, this was her best scene to date. She continued fucking and sucking until Scott rubbed one out on her face, Riley's admittedly enchanting eyes very appealing to me.
Summary: Jack's POV 14 by director Robby D. was full of hot women giving exciting performances so I rated it as Highly Recommended within the genre. I would have appreciated better extras, more tease, and a stricter adherence to the POV camera angle but I can't deny that each of the ladies present gave 110% to make this one of the best volumes in the series to date. Kristina Rose led the pack with Alexis Texas close behind (pun intended) but even Codi Carmichael, Nicole Ray, and Riley Steele seemed to be in rare form as they fucked and sucked their way into inspiring the intended effect. In short, Jack's POV 14 had a lot of POV fuck for the buck and surpassed Jack's POV 13 in terms of quality sexual misconduct, the movie certainly proving what I've been saying about the director for years now as far as how his talents can enhance a production.
