MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards[ Review by Homki890 August 2005 ]
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards SpeedOne thing good about this dvd is that it is arranged in difficulty levels, ranging from level 1-5, 1 being easiest, 5 being hardest. There is a demonstration of the trick/flourish, and then an explanation. The proper amount of time is spent on each, the harder ones getting more time, and the easier getting a good explanation. It does get a little boring to listen to, but it is really only like that for the basic moves. Every thing else is pretty entertaining.
Speed 5 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards Communication QualityThe teacher (I can't remember his name the top of my head) explains everything. Every explanation is talked through first, then done again a little faster, then again faster. Each time the teach runs through the steps, so you wont be able to get lost.
Communication 5 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards AppearanceBlack coat, Black background, all you can see basically is the hands. During teaching, the camera is over his shoulder most times, so you can see his back a bit. It looks nice and professional.
Appearance 5 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards Difficulty of Tricks TaughtThe flourishes span from fairly easy to quite difficult, which suits me perfectly. You can work through the dvd like you read a book: Progressively. You start at the beginning, and work your way to the top.
Difficulty from 1 to 5 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards Teaching QualityTeaching is one low point about it. The teaching, while good, is not all that good. It all kind of sounds the same, and its not very engaging. You have to be serious in learning if you want to benefit from this dvd.
Teching 3 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards QuantityThere is a CRAPLOAD of stuff on this dvd, all at various levels. If you want some cool moves for a nightly poker game, or for your friends at school, this has so much stuff, you'll have enough for at least 6 months, and you'll still be learning.
Quanity 5 stars
MagicMakersInc. - Showoff With Cards PriceFor 29.95, it's a bargain. Most dvds that offer XCM, flourishes or just some cool moves run up there into the $35+ region. This is the best price I've ever seen.
Price 5 stars
