Just Not as good as I was hoping Report this review

This looks like a cool one to do. It's very easy. I just don't like the possibility of audience wanting to touch the block. They can't. Yes, you can manage your audience with this, but all in all, they want to see and hold the block. This is not magician thinking. They WILL want to see and hold it! And they 100% can not. You have to make sure you perform it correctly (practice by all means) so you don't reveal the trick. I know; that is most of the tricks we do.
Be careful if you toss this one to the other hand for show. Might not work out to well.

As for the DVD. I was highly disappointed. This is NOT his best by all means. Looks like it took an hour to shoot this. The video shown here, is NOT the same quality you get! A BIG downer. The clips of him performing it are NOT all on the DVD! One is, and it is obviously a set-up staged presentation.

It's def. quick and to the point. Some may like that. But David is far better than this DVD. He could have (and should have) done so much more on the explanation. For the bonus effect, he doesn't even demonstrate it.

And I hate how the trailer says “Uncut”. That is not true. There are several edits (Bad ones at that). I have been doing video production for over 20 years.. So I am a little picky. But for the $$$, and the fact that David is an AWESOME magician; it bothers me that it wasn’t edit to the high standard I expect. And the audio on the explanation is not professional at all. Obviously the camera mic, as opposed to using a wired mic. Another pet peeve of mine.
Thi shad so much more potential. I can’t explain that w/o giving the method away.

David shows his true colors. The effects is beautiful. The gimmick/items your received are top quality. The dvd is short but sweet and well shot. Includes everything you need to know for the effect.

I would not use this everyday, I could but I wouldn\'t. This effect to me is for VIP audience members. It\'s so strong!

Don\'t pass this up, this makes me want to look into David\'s other stuff. He is a lovable guy! Two thumb tips up on this one.

David Regal is something of a genius and MEMENTO is absolutely 5 star. The basic effect as seen on the video requires no major moves or slight of hand. David performs this as a "prediction" with the spectator having a genuine free choice of a card, and it's amazing appearance in a solid lucite block in a card case that has been sitting on the table the entire time - with the words "My Favorite Card" written on the card. Wow...

This is an easy effect to learn, and I highly recommend MEMENTO. I've had a ball showing this to friends and family, and their jaws drop when they see their chosen card appear. No forces involved either - this one is destined to be a classic. Just a small amount of preparation involved in setting up the gimmick - less than 5 minutes and you are ready to roll. I love MEMENTO because it is unlike any other effect that I own!
