Somebody might have already mentioned this, but I'm too lazy to wade through the other pages of this thread. Movie by Gee Magic is still the best "movie" themed trick IMO. It's super visual and a real fooler and I can see it being a killer ending in conjunction with CineMental. Does anyone know if Movie will work with the second phase of CineMental? (Movie comes with Kill Bill as the prediction movie but Gee later released several (albeit expensive) expansion packs with the following movies: Jurassic Park / The Silence of the Lambs / Batman Darknight / The Incredibles / E.T. / Titanic / Pulp Fiction / Godfather / Star Wars / 40 year old Virgin. I don't yet have CineMental so I don't know what the movie is for phase 2 but I'm hoping it's one of the titles you can get for Movie. If not, they should seriously think about releasing expansion packs for CineMental.

The reason it’s not such a obvious big hitter of a film is that helps to disguise the boldness of stage 2 imo Gaz 🙂

The routine is great. Wish they were actual movie posters, but these images are beautiful too.

That's the exact reason I chose that movie and it works pretty well 😊

I was reluctant to purchase this because I use Director's Cut regularly in my strolling work, but after seeing it showcased on the Wizard Product Review I decided to give it a shot. The workings from the first phase of the effect were lifted directly from Ted Karmilovich's excellent routine called "Director's Cut 3-D" [released in 2016] from his Thoughts from Vegas E-Book. Nevertheless, the first phase is excellent and will fool everybody. I can also attest to how good it is since I've been performing Ted's routine for several years.

The second phase takes advantage of a clever artwork principle along with a tried and true classic mentalism method that will badly fool laypersons. Someone on this thread commented that the movie should be something more popular. I disagree. The chosen movie is perfect for this because it's lesser known. For example, if it had been "Jaws" or something more popular like that then the method could be detected more easily by spectators.

Cinemental was not designed for strolling work because the reset takes too long. It is better suited for parlor effect or casual settings. However, there's no reason why you couldn't use the cards exactly like Director's Cut and perform the same routines.

But personally, I prefer the Director's Cut cards for strolling work because I like the movie posters and Cinemental for parlor settings because I might combine it with something else. I tend to believe that almost everybody will be satisfied with this purchase although there will surely be some who'll think that the second phase is a bit "ballsy" even though I disagree. Once you make the leap into mentalism you'll realize that taking some chances is necessary for maximum effect.

I just received my cinemental! So excited to try it when the lockdown is over.

Feel the same as some of you guys regarding to the fact that the box is made to hold 52 cards and you only hold just half of it, sound litle bit weird.

Another this is about the grid, wasnt mention in the explanation and I thing is a greeeeat tool to have it in front of everybody (in case you are not good with stack decks)

I like the effect and the method, like the design and think is incredibly important for the second phase.

Trying to have a think if this would work well on zoom with the main effect or come up with some variations that might play well.

Just started to have a think about it so nothing yet but will post if something bright pops in my head. If anyone else has any ideas, please share, cryptically off course
