I attended a Jay Sankey lecture this past week and got an advanced copy of his DVD Hardcore and decided to make a review of it.

Hope this helps!

Thanks. Watched ur review. I dont think i'll be buying it.

All tricks are rated 7-8 (more or less). So basically its a typical Sankey dvd. Not sure its really "Hardcore". hmmmm

I agree. The 7-8's actually SEEM more like 5-7's. For me if an effect is an "8" it should shout AWESOME and be face splitting WOW with only a couple of point taking issues.

I view not all but many of Jay's effects more like stunts. Something seems missing from them that could make them more magical. I bet someone could figure out what it is and GO BIG with them. For instance, Heist with the coke can.
It certainly qualifies as a magic effect with the transposition and the basis has WOW potential. ...But why isn't it AWESOME? The little bit of WOW comes from the flash paper which certainly no longer qualifies the effect as impromptu. Or maybe it does for all of those who always have flash paper handy.

How about the idea of... A spectator signs an unopened can of coke. Then almost immediately the performer sets the can on the ground, STOMPS on it, CRUSHING the can! There is NO SPRAY as the liquid has VANISHED! Now THAT would be AWESOME and WOW!

Thanks for the comments guys!

I overall thought it was a good DVD - It is Sankey thinking and its one of his better DVDs. I will try and film some of my favorites from the DVD and post them, i hope this week!

The 2 biggest disappointments of the DVD were the tic tac one and the tnr. Those i would never perform. Things like the straw penetration, while an old idea Jays idea and handling of the ring addition i will use right away and probably the most... That and babylon band! I have a method for my idea about 90 percent worked out. Hope it turns out good!

Nice review! I was hoping this was gonna be a killer DVD, but it looks like I'm saving for some other stuff.
