This DVD is a bargain, any way you look at it. Tim and Sue-Anne demonstrate and explain many great magic routines and there is not a dud in the lot. The tricks include:

Ultimate Razor Blades - Excellent eating of razor blades routine.
Credit Card Fax - Sends the spectators home with your picture on their credit card
Cellular thinking - Let the spectator call your favorite phone psychic and find their selected card.
Bill to Anything - Tim performs this classic effect to perfection and gives you some great ideas.
Deckstress - Dell the spectators that you are going to impress a card on their mind, have some fun, and reveal the expected outcome.
Jazz cards - Highly interactive way to find a spectators card. Let them cut to their own card revelation.
Cash to credit card - Turn a coin or bill into a credit card.
7 Keys to paradise. Give away any number of keys to the grand prize box, and have the spectator you choose open the box with her key.
Shakespear’s Monte - giant 3 card monte presented but not explained (Very nice presentation)
Deck Vanish - Have 2 cards chosen, signed and returned to the deck. Reveal that the entire deck has vanished, leaving only the selected cards.

The special features section is as worthwhile as the original section. They have some great handling tips for the Fantasio candle, Thumb tip tips, Strolling magic tips, A very reasonable black art setup, and Magic sports.

Tim and Sue-Anne are obviously great performers. This DVD is very entertaining. Watching the performances provides another entire level to the education. The DVD is well over 3 hours in length and never gets boring. This DVD is the most impressive of their 3 DVD set and the others are great DVDs. Very Highly Recommended.

Hello:

I have to agree with just about everything Mike said. This is now my favorite magic DVD; my favorite parts are the Razor Blades, Jazz Cards, and Deckstress.

The TT techniques are really good! All the parts where Tim is performing at the Doctors' Convention is excellent as well.

This was my first time seeing Tim and Sue-Anne perform and they are talented people. You can tell the love what they are doing.

A big thankyou to Mike Close for reviewing our DVDs in MAGIC MAGAZINE this month.

If you'd like to see the ULTIMATE RAZOR BLADES he refers to "an excellent method", I'll be doing it in the Close Up Gallery at The Magic Castle April 4-10.

See you there!

(And we're doing our 24 YEARS lecture live at The Castle on April 10)

Tim, this DVD rocks! I really appreciate you and Sue Anne sharing your creativity. Magic, marketing, presentations, MagicSports, and the bonus material is more than you usually get on a regular DVD. Three thumgs up (I'm wearing a TT) for Ellis in Wonderland!!

Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster will be lecturing this Thursday, April 21st at Tannen's Magic in New York City. I saw them in Milwaukee in 2000, and they were GREAT. If the lecture isn't sold out yet, get a ticket -- you can thank me the day after via PM Smile

Sorry to be blowing our own trumpets again, but we just got this review from Jeff Hobson that I just had to share with you:

"LOVED your DVD's. The best produced instructional magic DVD's
I've ever seen not to mention the content which is insanely great!
The magic community is simply not worthy!"

This is the way dvd's should be produced. Fun, entertaining, and we don't see the same audience dvd after dvd, its a real audience with real reactions. You can't go wrong with anything put out by Tim and Sue-Anne.

Ellis in Wonderland was just reviewed at ABOUT.COM here: http://magic.about.com/od/magicreview/fr/elliswonder.htm



Wow! I just saw the review of Ellis in Wonderland at Online-Visions: http://www.online-visions.com/reviews/0507ellis.html

It starts out like this: "Ellis in Wonderland" contains some great, commercial, and ultimately entertaining routines in a fun compilation with some hilarious extras added just for kicks. To say this is a keeper is an understatement.

This is one of those times I really don't know where to start. So let's start with the material, which is going to take a while (the DVD is packed with over three hours of pure stuff, so a synopsis is going to be anything but short).

Taken as a whole, the material is quite simply excellent. Ellis and Webster have been at this a while and it shows: the material covers so much ground that there should be pitfalls along the way, but there are none. Zero. Zilch. All the material is commercial and entertaining. If there is any drawback to this collection, it's the reliance on set-ups and gimmicks needing resets which will make some wince. But even having said that, there are pieces here are so gorgeous that squeezing them into an existing act is a pleasure."


Thanks guys!

Must be a remake of his DVD. I don't have that version. It must be Tim Ellis Unplugged.

I have to buy it, but what I need to also buy for the RazorBlades illusion? Because I want the "items" to arrive with the DvD!
If someone can pm me, I'll appreciate that! Thanks, David

About two months I read a review of this DVD by one of my favorite reviewers in magic, Wayne Kawamoto. Wayne is a performer and "tells it like it is", in his reviews, and I trust him.

He said this:

"I've reviewed lots of DVDs of late, but Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster's Ellis in Wonderland stands above the rest. This DVD offers 12 solid effects that range from close-up to stand-up and stage. And there’s lots of good, real-world advice"

So I go to the Penguin site and they had it in stock:

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S42

I've been living with this DVD the last couple of months. It has to be one the best that has ever been released ( IMHO ). Based on other releases in magic, Tim could have sold just his version of "The Blades" for the price of the dvd.

Tim Ellis is an amazing performer and creator of killer magic!

Steve Brooks's review nailed this!


"I believe this to be one of the best magic instructional DVDs I have ever seen. A ton of A+ material presented and taught by an excellent teacher. Mr.Ellis is ever the professional in his performance, and so darn personable that you can't help but like him. This helps us learn better I believe and after viewing this disc I feel like I have met the man himself. It is obvious to anyone viewing this DVD that Tim and Sue-Anne spent a great deal of effort in its creation and it clearly shows. If you can only afford to purchase one DVD from Tim Ellis, this is the volume you can't be without. "
