This DVD here I had much expectations for, I was not too impressed but did enjoy a few effects and subtleties, therefore I am only going to review the effects I feel were awesome.

What they Say:
"Reflection represents an exquisite selection of eleven ingenious effects from one of our era’s finest card magicians, Bill Goodwin. Included is material culled from his hard to find lecture notes as well as several effects never before published. This is the first time a collection of his secrets has ever been released on DVD."


Off Balance Transpoistion:
This is a very nice effect in where a selction and the aces change places 3 different times.
I really like the idea behind this effect, I usually only do the first phase and spectators
love it.
It is not easy in any way, but once you get it down your golden.
Bill Goodwin teaches the effect greatly and does not miss out on anything at all.
The greatest thing though is that he goes over all the credits he does not leave a single
person out.

Twisting the Kings:
This is like the classic effect twisting the aces by Dai Vernon, only this one you can call
out which king turns over each time.
I like this version more the Dai Vernons origianl version because you call out which king
turns over each time before the it turns over and they turn over 1 by 1 they do not turn
back over so in the end you are left with 4 face down kings. Of course though with just
a rub they turn right back instantly.
His teaching is great like every effect and does not miss out on anything.
He once again goies over all neccessary credits which is awesome.

Those are the only effects I truly liked.

Quality:
The quality of this DVD is awesome, no flaws here and the setting is in the Magic
Castle.

Where to find: www.DanandDave.com
Price: 39.95
I reccommend this to magicians who are serious about their card magic,
these were not quite my style but if they are yours you got a gem on
your hands.

Any questions do not hesitate to ask.
