Jana Cova's Juice will appease the former Digital Playground contract star by making its high definition debut thanks to the wonders of Blu-ray technology. Those who miss Jana's output for Digital Playground may find that they're tempted to double dip on this one for the improved picture quality, but aside from that, this is basically a reissue. So yeah, no plot, no storyline, just a collection of eight scenes featuring some very sexy girls doing what you want them to do.
Here's a look...
Scene 1 - Jana Cova And Carli Banks: The scene starts off with some nice tease footage that sets the mood properly and then takes a strange turn when it looks like Carli's got a boner! Turns out she's got her strap-on with her and she strokes it like a cock to get Jana's attention. Jana sucks on the phallus and then gets fucked with it, first doggy style and then Jana decides to pay Carli back by eating her out and using her fingers on her.
Scene 2 - Audrey Bitoni And Marco Banderas: Again, this scene starts off with a nice tease shot as we get to spy on Audrey as she enjoys a nice, warm shower. She plays with herself for us and the camera loves her but soon she needs more. Thankfully, Marco is on hand to take care of things. He moves in with her and she gives him head and they get to fucking proper highlighted by some fantastic reverse cowgirl action that really shows off her rack. Marco pulls out of her and blows his load into her mouth to finish the scene.
Scene 3 - Jana Cova And Lena: Time for some blonde on blonde playtime! After the obligatory tease opening, where the girls, dressed in matching outfits, suck on their glass toys, they get down to business. Lots of kissing here as Jana works Lena's neck and tits before Lena gets down on all fours in front of her so that she can fuck her with the dildo. Lena returns the favor and uses her toy on Jana. There's not as much oral here as you might want to see, it's very toy intensive but damn do the girls ever look good.
Scene 4 - Alexis Love And Ben English: Alexis' little strut catches Ben's leering eye and before you know it he's rubbing her down and sucking on her heels. He plays with her breasts and warms her up to the point where she wants to go down on him which is exactly what she does. She uses her hands and feet on him and then he lies her down and fucks her missionary style. They switch it up and she rides him reverse cowgirl and then cowgirl style before Ben pulls out and pulls off all over her feet and toes.
Scene 5 - Jana Cova And Celeste Star: As Jana plays with herself and enjoys her time in the bath tub we realize Celeste is watching her, and that she's wearing a strap-on. Jana gives the fake cock fake head and then Jana lets Celeste put it inside her and fuck her from a few different angles. Jana then turns the tables on Celeste and does the same to her, making sure that both ladies are well taken care of in this steamy, and again, very toy intensive scene.

Scene 6 - Mikayla Mendez And Marco Banderas: As Mikayla tries to unwind and enjoy a book, Marco is trying to get her attention by kissing and touching her body. Eventually his efforts pay off and she smacks his ass! She then lets him suck her tits before he uses his fingers and tongue on her pussy and ass while she's bent over. She blows him and then he fucks her doggy style before they get on their sides and spoon fuck for a few minutes. Marco pulls out and blows his load across her tits to finish up.
Scene 7 - Jana Cova And Alektra Blue: The girls start making out during the hyper-edited intro and soon enough they pull out their toys and use them on one another. There's a little bit of pussy eating in here but not very much and as it was with the other girl on girl scenes, it's primarily toy based action we get. At one point Jana fucks Alektra's ass with the glass dildo and eventually Alektra fucks Jana with a strap-on. Good stuff. In my head, this is what girls always do when I'm not around.
Scene 8 - Paulina James And Scott Nails: This scene starts off with a bit of solo action as Paulina gets herself in the mood and lets her fingers do the walking. Scott's enjoying the show and soon he moves in on her to eat her pussy. She returns the oral favors and appears to give great head before they get to the main event. She rides him reverse cowgirl and cowgirl style and then they lie on their sides to spoon fuck for a bit. Scott pulls out and blows his load into her mouth to finish the scene and the feature.
IFJana Cova's Juice had featured a real audio track and IFJana Cova's Juice hadn't bombarded us with annoying slow motion footage and irritating and completely inappropriate scene transitions, it would have been hot stuff. This goes to show how much Celeste's directorial style has changed in the last few years because more recent efforts for Digital Playground tend to actually feature the voices of the actual performers, something almost always makes a porno movie hotter. Unfortunately, as nice looking as this picture is and as well shot as it is, the movie is riddled with those grating post production effects and it gets very old, very quickly. There's no doubt that director Celeste and director of photography Robby Dallas have captured some fantastic footage here but it's all been rendered limp by the incessant tinkering, and that's a damn shame. Jana's fans will enjoy this as she's in the bulk of the scenes but unless you're one of the dedicated, you're not missing much here. The whole feature seems fake, phony and tame and Jana Cova's Juice, despite the quality and the quantity of lovely ladies contained therein, comes off as a bad music video. With that out of the way, I can see how this would appeal to those who like their hardcore softened up. This could go over well as a couples video if you're looking for something inoffensive and pretty to spice things up between your own sheets, so as grating as the audio is, the feature is definitely not without merit. It's just that it could and should have been so much better...
Getting off my soap box and moving on to the transfer, Jana Cova's Juice looks excellent in this 1080p AVC 1.85.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer but keep in mind that the picture has an intentional softness and haze to it, presumably to give it some sort of dream like fantasy effect.. There's an insane amount of detail present not only on the performers but also in the sets and backgrounds/sets used in the production. There aren't any issues at all with compression artifacts or edge enhancement while color reproduction and skin tones look excellent throughout. Eagle-eyed viewers may spot just a hint of shimmer here and there but you do have to be looking for it to notice it. There are a few scenes that have been digitally altered in post production to look like beaten up film, so don't expect these scenes to look perfect because they're not supposed to. That said, the rest of this production looks quite impressive indeed.
The sole audio track on this Blu-ray release is a 48 kHz 448 kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound mix in English. The audio on this release is fine but it isn't as impressive as the transfer is. Dialogue stays clean and clear throughout and the levels are all properly balanced. The score sounds good and there aren't any problems with background hiss or distortion at all. The audio here won't blow you away but it certainly won't disappoint you either.
The only extra of any substance is a brief Behind The Scenes featurette that is at least presented in high definition. We get a look at some of the performers in action on the set of the production as well as some clips of the crew doing their thing. There's also some more candid material in here such as footage of the cast members relaxing between scenes and sitting around looking bored. Nothing particularly earth shattering, really, and the tendency to put 'cartoon balloons' over some of the performers is a pretty lame attempt at humor. Jana gets a bit more attention than some of the other girls here but they all get their due and a couple of interesting shots that show just how close the camera sometimes has to get to capture the action make it worth a look for those with an interest in these things.
Digital Playground has also included a trailer gallery featuring promo spots for a batch of other catalogue titles, all of which presented in HD and in 5.1 or 5.0 Surround Sound, which is a nice touch. A still gallery, motion menus, Digital Playground contact info, and scene selection round out the supplements on this release.
Jana Cova's Juice was obviously shot with quite a bit of care and attention and it features a pretty remarkable cast of gorgeous girls in all manner of deliciously precocious situations. The lack of real audio hurts things though and the over processed post production tinkering can definitely get tiresome as well. Does the good outweigh the bad? It comes close and it's really going to boil down to how much of a stickler you are for live audio. Consider this a good gateway drug, a decent and inoffensive smut film to enjoy with your partner and it's worth a rental.
