Extras: The best extra was the 10:01 minute long Bonus scene starring hotty Jenna Haze herself in a bonus BJ scene with Todd Todd. Then came a 34:43 minute long Behind the Scenes feature where the cast and crew all prepared for the scenes. There was a photogallery, and a helpful cast list as well, all of the extras located on the second disc.
Audio/Video Quality: Just Jenna was presented in an anamorphic widescreen color with an approximate aspect ratio of 1.78:1 as shot by director Jenna Haze for Jules Jordan Video using the MPEG-2 encoding and 480i resolution you would expect of a standard definition title. In order to allow her to participate in most scenes (including the solo work), Jenna hired Van Styles to work the camera and handle the majority of technical matters, infusing her own ideas with his expertise for this latest effort that was pleasing sexually. The lighting was flat and even most of the time (there were fewer attempts at "style" this time, allowing Jenna and friends to really shine better and brighter), still better than that which you'll find in most gonzo porn and topping a few of Van's recent efforts elsewhere. There was little grain and the fleshtones were even better this time making me think that the HD picture might look even better on one of the newer high resolution formats, but only by a small margin given the look of the ladies thanks to his fine work shooting the scenes (Van Styles also on the editing board here) with the bitrate coming in under the 4.6 Mbps rate most of the time. The composition of the shots was such that the ladies were made to look as good but I really did not think the movie was as polished looking as his own works these days, invoking a different look most of the time despite his dominance on the technical aspects of the movie. The audio was presented in 2.0 Dolby Digital English (192 Kbps bitrate with a 48 kHz sampling rate) but there was no separation between the channels and the vocals were on the low side in all but a few circumstances. Still, I could hear all the vocals and moaning needed to enhance the visual experience.

Body of Review: Jenna Haze has been performing in porn for years, winning over men & women alike with her youthful looks and skillful sexual exploits. Now in charge of her own company that is distributed by Jules Jordan Video, she has soared to new heights as she proves as resilient as ever when in charge of what takes place, handpicking some of the most capable people with the right technical skills to shoot exactly what she wants. Her latest fuck flick making it my way for review is called Just Jenna: Special Edition, the double disc offering providing exactly what her fans truly wanted from her, a series of nine all new scenes starring Jenna herself, some heated solo masturbation scenes interspersed with pairings of Jenna doing some of the best male performers in porn, from Jules Jordan to Erik Everhard to Manuel Ferrara to some up-and-comers. Without going into too much detail in this opening paragraph, suffice it to say that her fans will likely already have this one by now as she was really hitting it hard and fast the way they love. Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Jenna Haze, the hotty featured on the front cover, was up first wearing a black & white lingerie ensemble, mugging for the camera as she showed off her well known body. Her thong crept up her ass and she displayed all the pouty moves she has developed over the years as she moved through the house caressing her body in a seductive manner. The camera was especially fluid here with Jenna presenting a "come hither" look on her face, the gal masturbating until Kieran Lee walked into the picture wearing a business suit he didn't need. She practically attacked him by tearing off his clothing to gain greater access to his pecker, getting him down on the couch where she let loose blowing him aggressively. Once maddeningly erect, he reciprocated before beginning to pound away at her pussy as she screamed in pleasure, the chemistry between them less than the following scene with a male partner (her boyfriend Jules Jordan) but present all the same. Jenna was an active vaginal rider but also proved to be just as good during the anal, her aural musings able to turn on a blind man. He made her his "little anal slut" and continued hammering her, a glass toy used to give her a technical DP until she blew him to completion, his genetic juice plastered all over her face for her to lick at and swallow.
Scene Two: Jenna Haze was then up in a solo masturbation scene wearing a pink bikini outfit, moving about the tastefully decorated house as she felt herself up and teased the camera at length. Like all four such scenes on the DVD set, she mixed a combination of playfulness and seductiveness that worked for me, this time using no toys to penetrate her pussy and ass other than her fingers.
Scene Three: Jenna Haze was next up wearing a blue outfit with fishnet stockings, teasing the camera until she slobbed the knob of Jules Jordan. She looked at the camera knowingly as she inhaled his cock, using her hand to gland combat style to enhance the friction. Their level of chemistry was solid this time, their real life relationship upgrading the fun as they let loose on each other. She rode him actively but stuck with vaginal positions only, some taste testing leading to her blowing him to her expected facial in POV fashion.
Jenna Haze with Charles Dera
Scene Four: Jenna Haze was then up in another solo effort outside by the pool in her black & white bikini, the camera set to wash out most of the background scenery. Her "little girl lost" look was played up and she used a glass dildo, the scene ending abruptly before I thought she was finished (but still strokable).
Scene Five: Jenna Haze was then up wearing her featured cover outfit, shaking about the room with some moderately stylish lighting and post production work making it seem almost like a retro scene, hooking up with studly Manuel Ferrara on the couch. They kissed like long lost lovers and he placed her across his knee to spank as he choked her, whispering in her ear what he was going to do to her as she screamed out in pleasure. He ate her out and she reciprocated, special attention paid to her asshole before she climbed onto his cock for another wild ride. This was another vaginal tryst (not surprising considering their respective sizes) worth repeated viewing, their chemistry excellent and the enthusiasm by both of the couple really well handled. I thought she looked best bent over but performed best when on top of his lap, the facial ending the action before she licked up his wealth of population pudding and playfully served as his foot stool.
Jenna Haze with Erik Everhard
Scene Six: Jenna Haze started off the second disc with another solo outing, her sheer black bikini top matched with some neon blue booty shorts and fishnet stockings. Jenna continually addressed the camera this time and the camera work was almost exclusively done in close up fashion, a mixed blessing most of the time but certainly fitting given her degree of heated and polished moves. She fingered her ass and beckoned for the viewer to masturbate to her, a nice change of pace that I enjoyed even if it only lasted around 15 minutes.
Scene Seven: Jenna Haze then pranced around in an animal print top and pink thong, her matching shoes elevating her height as she gave up some wonderful tease before pairing up with Charles Dera. They were on a tan loveseat and he surprised me by going down on her juicy slit first, Jenna kissing him before he began to vaginally bone her. His pecker was not fully erect (weird!) as he did this though, the guy needing some loving oral attention by Jenna as she blew him with her hand providing that lovely twisting motion to excite him (and the audience) even more. She kept eye contact with him most of the time too, the gal seemingly appreciating he was a cut above many of the mopes in the industry in terms of looks, if not exactly sexual prowess. He did better with the second round of vaginal positions too, Jenna toying with him in a kittenish fashion as she rode his cock and taste tested it from time to time. The scene eventually ended when he tossed off a huge wad of semen to her lower abdomen, his chunky spunk eliciting a smile as the camera panned out.
Scene Eight: Jenna Haze then danced around to a slightly faster beat in her cover outfit seen on the lower right hand corner of the cover, her white stockings and peach accessories looking good with her wind tossed hair in the living room. She used her fingers before advancing to a curvy vibrator (purple and white colored), the orgasm presented seemingly real and her juices flowing freely for her to taste off the toy at regular intervals.
Scene Nine: Jenna Haze was next up in a vignette wear she was the appropriately attired business assistant to Erik Everhard. She was far from the best help he could have asked for though he started to change his mind when he found photocopies of her tits along with some other paperwork. He called her into the conference room to discuss her work ethic and she soon provided a reason to keep her on the company payroll, hiking up her skirt to reveal her fantastic ass. Her sexy undies were riding up her ass crack and she gave him a lap dance of sorts, his hands freely roaming around her body before he laid her back on the table to eat and finger. Jenna appeared to get off and then sucked his cock like it was her new favorite toy, moving into some heated vaginal penetration positions complete with taste testing until doing likewise with the anal. Erik seemed to tone down his usual zoned out pounding technique here but Jenna picked up any slack as it were, proving she was his match as he drilled her deeply. The anal was slow at first, Jenna picking up the pace as time went on but reverting to vaginal before he unleashed a big nut of spunk to her face. Jenna cleaned him off while looking up into his eyes, their chemistry also undeniably strong.
Summary: Just Jenna: Special Edition by director Jenna Haze for Jules Jordan Video was a "must have" double disc release of the popular beauty, the sheer amount of new footage focusing solely on her certain to win the approval of her many fans and followers. Even the extras included unique material to appreciate with the technical matters handled a bit more loosely this time, giving the appearance of Jenna in different ways to enhance the replay value, strokability, and overall quality of this "Covers We Crave" pick from Xcritic.com, meriting a rating of Xcritic Pick for many reasons but ultimately based on the well established appeal of Jenna Haze herself. In short, while a few people might wish there was an interracial and lesbian scene included to flesh out Just Jenna: Special Edition, given the fact that there was so much to appreciate, I suspect that this one will win some awards and increase the already impressive size of Jenna Haze's fan base.
