I think only about five to six tricks are really good, but that's personal preference and it does not need to be more than that for me to give 5 stars in this case, because those 5 are VERY strong. Personally, I don't like tricks that involve pad-locks, manilla envelopes and I also don't understand Jay's enthusiasm about predicting the date on a coin all the time, which he does on different products of his. Also "Mona Lisa" which everybody seems to like I don't, because there is a 1 in 4 chance of this happening anyway, and that's not strong enough. Especially for a trick that takes so much preperation for the performer. And is also nothing special to watch. (the spec. moves around the 4 pieces of the ML - computer-printout - and no matter how many times he does that when they are unfolded they will basically all be where they belong. It would be more fun with the real Mona Lisa.)
Ok, let's say 6 tricks are not only good but kick-xxxx and 6 times 5 bucks is 30, there you go.
Projection: Jay and a spectator have on deck of card each and turn over a card behind their backs. The cards match. No ex-change of the deck, magician always acts first (shows the card first etc.). Fantastic.
Lottery: right. Already explained in a different review, absoulely mind-boggeling. Especially since the spec can change the order of the cards and still the prediction turns out to be right. Best trick? I agree.
Perfect timing: forgot the name of the trick: behind his back the spectator will mark any one out of 3600 possible minutes the face of a watch made of paper. Boris predicted this beforehand. Will need quite a bit of preparation, though.
Speechless: A prediction is written on a playing card and placed face-down on the table before the spectator names "any object". Sounds trivial but is like "dropping an anvil on a child's head on a hot day". (Sorry about that, but Boris says so. And he's right.)
Impulse Control: Loved this one, and it's so easy to do. On top of the deck Boris puts a card of another deck (different color) which has a question mark on it. He claims that he will control the spectators choice. The spectator selects a card from the deck and it turns out, as Boris turns over the ?-card, it is that very card.
Unconscious knowledge: Jay's version of the stop trick. Spectator thinks of a card and names a number between 1 and 52, it's his card.
Distant relations: Spec writes whatever name on a piece of paper. Jay puts it in a paper-clip and burns it without opening the folded piece of paper. He writes the name on a second piece of paper. That's because he's mental.
Facsimile is also strong, he guesses what's written on your business-card and makes a drawing of it, though it's more fun when there is someting special printed on it, and that might not occur all the time.
So, 5 very strong effects, three strong ones and just a very funny Jay Sankey. Also, everything is very well explained. I also think this one is a lot better than 22 blows to the head which I found average.

Jay did it again. He went out of his way to create an entertaining, but high quality product.
There is soooo much material on this DVD to watch, but it's just hilarious to watch as well.
This is good if you want to add some mentalism to your act without needing to carry around a bunch of crazy props.
Pretty Good. Report this review

This DVD was actually pretty funny, despite how un-funny Jay can be sometimes! The Mona Lisa trick alone was worth the price of the DVD.

SWEET! Awesome video with many many astounding effects. By far my favorite mentalist instructional DVD! Every routine is very well taught by Mr. Jay Sankey, very visual.. easy understanding. He is very funny in this too so it makes it alot funner to learn and understand. I tried several of these effects on my family and they were amazed. Every single effect taught in this video, you WILL USE one time or another, and they all get great reactions. I can't recommend this enough. ADD TO CART!

No Audience !! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 17th, 2011
The mental magic tricks on the dvd are nice and some are quite good. I did find some ideas for new twists for my repertoire.
I bought this dvd in the 'Choose 5 penguin promotion'. My intention was to see a funny mentalism show (or funny mental magic tricks) performed by a special character in front of an audience. I was looking to see how this would be handle.
But there is No Audience. Sankey is peforming alone without anyone around except for the camera. For this I put 3 stars : some good magic mental tricks but nothing on learning what a funny mental magic act would like.

Excellent routines. Tough to get past the Boris Pocus persona. But once you get past that, it is excellent!
boris pokes is truly mental Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 17th, 2006
This dvd is great. With this dvd you will have all the mental effects you need. Some of tricks require some a bit of prep, but once you have prepped it you can do the tricks again and again and again!!!! A lot of the tricks are great to carry around in your pocket! The dvd is great and the tricks are great and boris pocus is soooo funny!
Get it as a comedy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 13th, 2006
Wow, this DVD is awsome. You should stop reading after this review. I have a pretty high standards on my DVDs, and this goes up on them. Also, he is so funny that you should just get it as a comedy movie. And, the tricks are outstanding, and the methods for accomplishing them are simple. Get it. You will not be disappointed.
