The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Iíve heard some very good things about this one. Iím going in with pretty high expectations.
Initial Reaction: Itís far different from what I expected, and every bit as good as I hoped.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting dark and nasty porn
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody looking for something soft or straightforward
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: Everything about the technical aspects is artistic. The audio is clear, but the balance sometimes changes to help the dark mood of the movie. The video is also very dark and artistic. Itís presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, and although itís sometimes clear itís also sometimes filtered to create different effects. The video isnít close to straightforward, but itís definitely very well done. The only thing that holds the technical aspects back in the movie is that itís not presented in anamorphic widescreen. Jenna appears to be putting a lot of care into her movies, so I hope this will change in the future!
Music: Walt Jizney provides the music, which has a very dark and hard feel. It fits the movie extremely well, and definitely helps things out.
False Advertising: Alternate angles are advertised on the cover, but I couldnít find any sign of them in the movie. Iím deducting a half point from the overall score because of it.
Menus: The menus are pretty well done. The main menu is very well done and definitely lets you know that this isnít going to be the soft and cuddly Jenna some might expect. The chapter menu is very generic, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and a chapter number.
The FeatureAfter killing her parents and eating them, Jenna is sentenced to death by the electric chair. While this would be the end for many, in Jennaís world itís just the beginning. Sheís interrogated by Naziís about her ability to bring the dead back to life, as well as exploring the nightmares of her mind. No, this isnít going to be the Jenna youíre used to.
|Scene 1 - BellaDonna and Jenna Jameson|
After wheeling her down the hallway on a gurney, Jenna breathes live back into Bella. She moves down to tongue Bellaís twat before coming up to kiss her passionately. Jenna lies back so Bella can eat her holes in return and lets Bella work her over with several fingers as well. Jenna fingers, tongues, rims, and spanks Bella from behind in return before they kiss passionately one last time.
This is a great scene. Bella and Jenna have fantastic chemistry and never look like theyíre trying to hold back. It starts off fairly soft, but Jenna nicely picks things up as it goes on. Bella matches her for energy, and helps to make this scene every bit as good as what one would hope. This is a very hot start to the movie.
|Scene 2 - Monica Sweetheart, Anthony Hardwood, Jenna Jameson, and Dirty Harry|
Monica starts things out in a pink dress with a mouth opener and a speculum while ďNurseĒ Jenna assists. He pulls out the speculum and feeds it to Monica before going back down on her. Monica sucks Anthony in return as Jenna works her holes over with her fingers before hopping up to ride him reverse cowgirl style while Jenna watches and diddles herself. As Dirty Harry rides in on his tricycle and starts stroking himself Monica slides Anthonyís cock back into her ass and then lets him work it over missionary style. Finally, Anthony gives Monica a pop on her tongue after Harry jerks himself off. Afterwards, Anthony collects his jizz back up in a little cum and then takes it over to a machine to analyze.
This is another darkly artistic scene thatís extremely sexy. Anthony and Monica do a great job and Jenna kicks things up another notch looking fantastic in her fetish nurse outfit. Iíll admit that Harry being added to the scene didnít add anything for me, but on the other hand he does help some with the feel of the movie. This is another hot and twisted scene.
|Scene 3 - Jenna Jameson and Justin Sterling|
Jenna, wearing a blood smeared latex apron, pulls a cover off a bald Justin on the slab in a hospital morgue. She brings him back to life with the paddles, which are provided by Harry wearing a white and red nurseís outfit, as well as her magical touch. Justin slowly comes to life as Jenna strokes him and diddles herself sitting on top of him. He comes up to eat her pussy and ass, and even gives her a little ass fingering as she sucks his cock. Jenna slides forward to ride Justin reverse cowgirl style before letting Justin bone her from behind. She also lies back for Justine to give it to her missionary style before taking a great facial finish.
This is another great scene. Itís not quite as dark as the other scenes, although Justin doesnít look like a good male model. He does manage to put out a great load at the end, as well as plenty of energy to match Jenna. They show some great chemistry as well, and combined with some very nice camera work put out a very hot scene.
|Scene 4 - BellaDonna and Nacho Vidal|
Bella moves in on Nacho as he works in a boiler room. They kiss and grope each other a little before Nacho slaps and fingers her ass. She bends over to suck Nachoís cock as he eats her before letting him nail her from behind. Bella takes him into her throat a few times before he works around fucking her from behind standing up. Bella even lets Nacho ream her rectum from behind before giving it to her pussy near the top of the boiler missionary style. Finally, Bella gives Nacho a little oral loving until he decorates her face, and then lets him fuck her throat and licks his ass.
Justin put together another fantastic scene here. Bella and Nacho have fantastic chemistry and topped it off with plenty of energy. The anal feels like a natural progression for the scene and my jaw was often hanging down with the job Nacho and Bella do. This is an amazing scene, and easily one of the best of 2004.
|Scene 5 - Jenna Jameson|
The next couple scenes have Jenna in a black wig with black eye makeup. She diddles herself in a dark hallway in a black dress as well as splitting into three and diddling herself in a chapel while Harry watches and strokes himself. She both sits back to diddle herself and gets on all fours to rub her nub. Finally, the scene fades out as the next begins.
This is a pretty good pair of scenes. It keeps the dark and mental feel while also letting Jenna show off her usual great skills. As usual, itís quite artistic, and it works good to break things up. This pair of scenes isnít quite as hot as some of the others, but still darn good.
|Scene 6 - Mya Mason, Julie Taylor, and T. T. Boy|
T. T. wheels Julie, wearing a pink poodle skirt, a black shirt, and a black wig, into a room where her twin Mya is slumped over a piano. He leaves Julie in her wheelchair and moves Mya around so that he can start fucking her face. She comes to life and starts gobbling his knob before T. T. wheels Julie over to the piano and sets her up on it. He tongues her twat before fucking it, and Mya helps out by playing with it and sucking Julieís tits. She comes to life as well as he fucks her, and helps Mya suck his cock when he jumps up by them. T. T. moves back down to fuck Mya, and continues to move back and forth between the girls fucking them around the room. Finally, he lets the girls share a facial finish.
This is yet another darn hot scene. The opening feel didnít do a lot for me with the girls being out of it, but I like how they came to and seemed to get into it more and more through the scene. This is a great scene to finish things with, and the only thing that was missing for me here was Jenna or Bella.
Bella Loves Jenna is a very unique and interesting movie. Itís definitely very dark and artistic, and I can see that turning a lot of people off. Personally, I really liked how unique it felt. Iíll admit that in the past I couldnít help but think of Justin Sterling as just another suitcase pimp. With Bella Loves Jenna that all changed. Justin shows a fantastic artistic eye here, and definitely did his wife justice both with her on screen as well as behind the camera making the movie as a whole. There isnít a bad scene in the movie, nor a scene that Iíd come close to calling ďnormalĒ. A lot of people have been asking for more unique porn, and Justin and Jenna definitely give it to them here. Most importantly, they manage to keep a sexual feeling through the scenes rather than losing it in the artistic effects that saturate the movie. The only complaint I can really have with the movie is that thereís very little interaction between Bell and Jenna. They start off the first scene together, and never appear on screen after that. With a title like Bella Loves Jenna, Iíd expect them to be together a little more. That isnít any reason to avoid Bella Loves Jenna, and if you like dark and artistic sex you should keep a space on your bookshelf just for it. Bella Loves Jenna is a dark, unique, and hot adult movie thatís definitely worth checking out.
The Extra StuffFetish rooms are included that let you see specific sex acrs such as blowjobs, doggie, or cumshots that last between about four and fifteen minutes. Several photo galleries are also included. There are five galleries lasting about a minute and a half each are included which are broken down by scene. Thereís also a web link to the trailer, a commentary, and several featurettes.
Justin and Jenna team up to give an audio commentary, which unlike so many others feels completely unedited (and according to a couple comments they make, is supposed to be). Once again, they sound like theyíre having a lot of fun. They talk about most everything that comes to mind about the movie, from the performers to how they shot the movie. As they talk, they joke around quite a bit and Justin mercilessly plugs ClubJenna.com and tries for a blowjob. Itís another fun commentary from Justin and Jenna, and once again they sound like a good couple with a lot of talent rather than just a superstar and her suitcase pimp.
About five minutes of deleted scenes are bloopers are also included. Itís all plenty twisted, which shouldnít come as any surprise. Thereís a few crack-ups and laughs from off screen, but most of it seems to be some of the background videos from the movie and deleted scenes. Itís an okay featurette, but at times it feels like itís pushed together a little much.
Meet Harry lasts about five and a half minutes. It follows the midget Harry throughout the movie. Thereís only music for audio, with Captions telling most of the story. Itís an amusing little featurette, and manages to keep the dark humor of the movie.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, rimming (male > female, female > female, and female > male), anal, group, masturbation (male and female), and toys
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Club Jennaís DVDs can be found online for between about $17 and $25 with many stores offering them for around $20. Iíd suggest renting this one first just because I know that the dark and artistic feel of the movie will lose a lot of people. That said, thereís a lot of effort put into the movie, and the technical aspects and extras show some nice care. This is a nicely made DVD.
Note to Club Jenna: Itís great to see you supporting the widescreen format, but in the future please take your support all the way to anamorphic widescreen. Also, please watch your cover claims. Iíll admit that alternate angles arenít too important to me in a feature like this, but advertising them and then not giving them brings your product to a lower level than never advertising them in the first place. That said, you did a great job here and definitely have me looking forward to more!
