I have the Ellusionist videos. I have not had any exposure to the other videos mentioned in this post, so I can not make any comparisons.
I always had an interest in card magic and new some basic card tricks. It was the ellusionist videos that got me back into card magic. I learnt some good slights and moves from the videos.
My favourite would have to be Crash Course 2. The James Ellis Loading is an excellent move from CC2.

I think the girls from the Ellusionist videos are just Brad Chri$tian's (hint) neighbors, and relatives. I literally had to fast-forward through those clips in between routines because I couldn't stomach it.

I bought Street Magic, and Kard Klub from Ellu$ionist, and it was the biggest waste of money I've ever spent on magic before. Every video is recycled into the next and called something else, or a "bonus" is taken and added as a main feature.

If you watched every Ellusionist video, the math is that you'd learn a handful of tricks, for the price you could've paid for a WEALTH of valuable books, and DVD's that could've provided you with an arsenal of magic.

Better camera work, and videogame-like themes don't = better magic.
Harsh, but realistic.

Profile of irishguy asked which to buy first which denotes that you are interested in buying both.

The bundles are $62 and $80, for a combined $142.

For $150 you could purchase card college which covers all that material and more.

You could purchase On The Pass for $35, The Magic of Eddie Fechter for $45, and Double Take for $30. Those would all equal $110.

I'm just saying...there are better alternatives for learning that material and much more in the same price range.

I agree with most of the opinions posted here.

Buy Royal Road To Card Magic and other important resources like books.

Reading books is better because you get a wealth of information from them for only a cheap price.

Trust me on this. Videos will burn a hole in your pocket if you don't know what you are buying. Books are better because there something for everyone in it.

Crash course should be bought first as that gets you the basics and then the Ninja series can help you expand and elaborate on your routines with them.
