Worth getting? Thoroughly enjoyed his books, how does this tape stack up? All reviews greatly appreciated.

An unqualified yes, get it. Frankly, I don't think you will find anyone who will disagree.

Thanks Gianni, but I did receive a PM of the opposite opinion, it appears Derren Browns offerings have a "love it or hate it" quality about them, I have also read "worst book' comments in this section about Pure Effect which I thoroughly enjoyed. By the way, what do you mean by "unqualified"?

Chappy, I am stunned that anyone panned this tape. Let this thread play through and see how many people are in the "hate it" camp.

I say "unqualified" because I cannot think of any negatives about the tape. Its contents are fresh and interesting, and Derren's style is entertaining. What more can you ask but to see fresh, interesting material in an entertaining way.

Again, let's see how many people post here who "hate" this video.

Gianni

PS:

Please ask your private messager if he would be kind enough to publicly post his criticisms of the tape. I would be most interested.

Gianni, Your request has been forwarded. I wait patiently for his response. Incidently, I'm surprised not to see more discussion of Mr Browns offerings on these forums. I can see that many of his views might touch the odd nerve and wonder if it may be a case of " If you have nothing good to say..."

To my knowledge this tape is out of print. I have seen it go as high as 150.00 US for the tape. I will start this off by saying I am not a card man, so my thoughts are a bit biased. I have this and plan on rewatching it, but if my memory serves, the tape is not all that for quality, very dark and for me hard to watch. I did not care for the tape, if lapping cards and putting boxes down your sleeve is your thing, then this tape is up your ally. I did like his comments and thoughts at the beginning of the tape about charther. It has been awhile since, I have watched this tape, but I will watch it and post a more detail offering.

Is this a teaching video? Or just performance?

A truly beautiful video. Probably my favorite. I'd trade a dozen Daryl's, Roth's and Ammar's for this one video over and over again. I learned more from watching Brown's performances than I do from wathcin most tapes' explanation sections. And then come the explanations. The only video that has truly changed the way I look at amagic and who I want to be as a performer.

Try here, but I think you'll find it in NTSC format only:

Thanks, guido. The only problem is that the site will not load. Anyone else have that problem?

I suppose you saw that you have to write down a kind of password at the bottom of the first site, to be able to enter the "Products" he is selling?
I just tried it and it went alright.

This is a must for all card magicians....in fact, make that all magicians. The material is strong, original, and there's plenty of it.

I'm pretty sure it is still available direct from Derren through his site. The site is probably suffering from a deluge of interest after his recent TV special.

No, no, I mean that I can't view any pages on the site, it says "Cannot Find Server". I'll try again later, but thanks anyway.

I just realised, the reason I cannot view the site is probably due to a huge increase in the flow of traffic to the site after Sunday's show.

What the? I went to the products page and tried to answer the question, which is seems to be very easy. However, it keeps saying I have the answer wrong.

Could I possibly PM someone who has access to the site? I will tell you what I believe the answer is, and you tell me if I am right or wrong. I AM NOT ASKING FOR THE ANSWER, moderators. If I am wrong, I do not want you to tell me the answer.

Is that ok, or is it against the Café rules?

Does anyone know if this will be carried by a US distributor or be in DVD format?

Placebo-- I initially put the wrong answer down, but with a little more thought found another answer that also fit the question.
