The Genii Review

Genii Magazine is the oldest and most respected magazine on magic in the United States. It has been in publication since 1936.

In the December 2003 issue, Joe M. Turner wrote the following review on Oz's DVD, Stealing Pips.

Oz Pearlman is a young pro from New York City whose deceptive card magic is easy to learn, fun to perform, and magical to watch. On this DVD, Mr. Pearlman teaches a dozen of his most usable ?workers? for close-up card magicians.

The effects are varied, ranging from predictions to vanishes to transpositions. Some of the plots are classics, but the additions Mr. Pearlman contributes are substantial and worth preserving.

Mr. Pearlman executes his material with both passion and precision. His handling of the Bertram color change caused me to reach for the remote so I could watch it again ? in his hands, it truly looks like a camera trick. His explanation of the move is clear and through, as are all of his explanations. His ?IC3? is an ungimmicked handling of David Regal?s ?Triple Vision? which eliminates the need for gaffed decks and is probably my favorite routine on the DVD.

I will share a couple of reasons why this kind of DVD appeals to me. First, the magic itself is more than just changes in finger positions, phase sequences, or sleight substitutions. In most cases, the magic represents either practical original material, in-depth expertise on a particular sleight, or a variation of an existing effect that makes a substantive change in the routine, such as eliminating the need to carry a gaffed deck. Each of these qualities is an effective motivator that spurs me to try out a new routine or move.

Another important consideration is that the production values are high but they are not turned into the star of the show. I am certainly a fan of creative and theatrical approaches to training, but when a product?s style outweighs the substance of the material being taught, I lose interest quickly. Fortunately that is not the case with this product.

This DVD is a gem and worth your time if you perform card magic in strolling or other close-up environments. (Oh, and if you?re wondering, Mr. Pearlman?s first name rhymes with ?hose.?)

What the hell is the navigation system Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 11th, 2014
By reading the reviews, I think that possibly my DVD is failing, Because nobody complains about the navigation through chapters.
surfing between the 'read all', 'performances' and 'explanations' is a hard nervous trial : there is no back or forth button, so I must eject, re-enter the DVD, which begins immediately on a performance, ... stop, try 'Menu' (forbidden !) and with some luck find the choice page.
After that unsatisfied review, what about the content ?
Some effects are very visual (view changes), and the techniques explained are very interesting.
If I'm within the only few with DVD problems, This DVD is highly recommanded.

Strong Material. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 31st, 2012
I purchased this DVD at one of Oz's shows in NYC where I live. This was more than 5 years ago. Didn't surprise me, but I soon realized that I was not ready for that material at all.

In addition, most of the material is not impromptu and impractical for everyday performing situations. Out of nine effects, only 2 are completely impromptu. All the effects require a surface to work on, except for one of them that can be adapted to a standing situation. One of the effects requires a gaff, and others require set-ups with card with different colored backs, etc...

What am I saying? It's a great DVD. But if you're a beginner, I suggest Royal Road to Card Magic or even the Card College series. Learn alot of tricks that are impromptu and more practical, then tackle this DVD. I already performed Perfecto for my wife and she was blown away, even though she knows most of my stuff already.

Oz being Oz. Report this review

Oz is a hard worker, and very skilled. This DVD is chock full of the effects that he's used to make his repuation in this business. You not only learn various useful routines and effects, but you learn some "moves" that you can use to improve your own routines. It's a very good bit of information even if you choose not to use specific effects he outlines.

There's not a lot more that needs to be said. If it's good enough for him, then it's good enough for us.

This DVD is full of good quality stuff. Oz does a great job walking you through each of the effects. The Card Vanishes sequence is probably my favorite routine on the DVD. The SAC move is one of the techniques that could be said to be 'worth the price of the DVD'. I really like Oz' thinking with some of these moves.

A good challenge. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
I like this DVD a lot because the magic and sleights are a bit more advanced than a lot of Oz's instant downloads. So when I sat down and learnt some of the tricks on the DVD it forced me to learn some slightly technical moves and magic.

If you're looking for a DVD with some very visual magic and some tricky sleights then certainly get hold of this!

Not as good as I think Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
I bought this DVD because I like Oz Pearlman's ideas. However, I found some of the routines in this DVD looks similar (e.g. Perfecto & IC3). I like Perfecto, Thought Force as well as the Card Vanishes routines, and some of the effects in this DVD are actually quite amazing (e.g. Lord of the Twist), but overall, this is neither my favourite Oz Pearlman DVD nor a card magic DVD I really enjoy.

When I saw this dvd, I realized that with a normal deck, you can always do things that are very amazing.
This dvd is a must have for every magician.

Pips worth stealing (but do buy them) Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Oz teaches a variety of material here and does it well. You'll get a bunch of new ideas and presentations from one of the guys who knows how to share his love of the art and be unusual with thinking and expression. This isn't all beginner's work; little of it is extremely difficult. I like that once you learn one move on this DVD Oz teaches you a couple of ways to use it, and that with some creativity you can apply what you have learned to other effects.

Great Card Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
The tricks are really good and Oz makes a great job during the explanation. There are several moves that are really useful that can be easily applied to your current routines. I don't think this is a DVD for beginner's. If you know your card magic and want to learn some useful card moves and some killer applications this is a DVD I would recommend.
