Got this, watched it, liked it.

I prefer 1 but 2 is worth consideration. Same high production values. Same commercial magic from the Frenchman.

I gotta say, this is probably one of the best produced set of DVD's that I've ever seen. I have never had my attention held like that from a magic video before. Even though these guys were new to filming, they did a great job, and have a knack for this.

Sleightly off-topic, but has anyone noticed how the title graphics in the recent batch of Penguin Magic instant downloads looks a lot like the ones in the two productions? Guess effects aren't the only things that get ripped off...

Well this all sounds great but I'm gonna need a real review. I loved the first one for everything, Effects, explanations and just over all great entertainment. Is this second one left wanting or does it fit the bill? The Trailer looks good, most of all I like the what seems to be a reverse triumph routine where all the cards turn face up in your hand and there selection is reversed in the middle. But how is the rest of them?

Paisa23, the second one is very good I'm glad I picked it up and there are things I'll definitely use. Picking which is the best btween vols one and two is tricky, but if pushed I'd probably put volume one slightly ahead.

Apart from the routines, Vol 2 talks about various situations that a retaurant worker will encounter, such as tips, hecklers and working the table effectively etc.

There is some great advice regarding the above issues but the real reason I purchased this was for the routines and once again David doesn't fail to deliver.

There is some really nice coin stuff (productions etc.) and some very nice 'commercial' card routines. The routine you mentioned is a real worker and one that I intend to use. There is also a great travellers routine on there which I really love.

In addition he has some routines using items other than coins and cards - such as napkins, cigarettes, glass etc.

Pretty much all of these routines are workers that you could use easily in a walk around setting. Having said that, there are a couple which use some table space (he talks about his method of getting space on a table elsewhere on the DVD) and there is one which is a stand alone effect - by that I mean that it needs a bit of set up and it certainly doesn't reset. It's a great effect though - it's called Duncan.

Hopefully that short but sweet review will be of some help. I would say though, that if you liked Volume One you'll like Volume Two.

Cheers
Billy

Defintely, I agree no more than that... maybe even within 24 hours ...

It won't be because of the download. Whole DVD's are ripped and posted online. It's happening to everyone. Also... so nice of you to watch... how many have you downloaded?

Actually, I find it quite interesting to watch. I cry when I see something I bought posted online for the entire world to take for free, but it's good to know what's been circulated and what has not. Just because people know where to get it doesn't mean that they do.

You don't find it weird that "Ellusionist secrets" is probably the most searched term in magic? When a video is released by E, you know that it is a high quality video, but on the other hand, you KNOW that it will much more likely be posted on the internet than if it was from another company. Just makes it that much harder.

I have ordered it. I tried the download from ellusionist but it does not work with macs because of window media players evil DRM. Somehow I managed to get through the net. But, they very kindly, are refunding my order and I have ordered the dvd direct from http://realsecretsofmagic.com/

Krono's thanks for the assumption. How many have I downloaded? None, Nada, Nothing.

It is nice for me to watch, I've reported several file sharing sites to ellusionist. You should be thanking me instead of pointing the finger.

If that's the case then:

1. Thanks.
2. My apologies for the insinuation.

Really? I reported that once to Ellusionist and that stupid person reply they cannot read Chinese and do not know what is it...

The freaking Bit Torrent icon is right on the screen and they know nothing!

How am I suppose to help the community? Buy my own flight ticket to the States and teach them how to search those BT torrents? What a joke!

Calm down, Steven. You can't expect an US magic company to take any action against other web site that locate in Asia. They are so far away~
