There are ALLOT of great DVD's and these threads are always fun to do.

Aaron Fisher's Search & Destroy DVD is INCREDIBLE. From his live performance to his detailed instruction on the routine and the nowhere pass, it's one of the best DVD's ever released.

With respect, wouldn't one have to have seen almost every magic DVD published in 2009 to have an informed opinion? Otherwise, this thread is really nothing more than "Best DVD I Have Seen for 2009" and, without knowing how many and which DVDs have been watched by the individual posters, even that is not very helpful.

I would be particularly interested in those magic and mentalism fanatics who watch almost everything that comes out for their (better informed) opinions!

Although you are absolutely right, it's all just in fun, not to be taken seriously.

OK, then, I will join the fun. In Magic, I would vote for True Astonishments. In Mentalism, I'll say 13 Steps by Richard Osterlind.

Now, I don't own and haven't watched either of these DVD sets, mind you, but since viewing doesn't seem to be a criterion for voting, these are my choices!

Don't agree with you Dark Knight. Of course, very few of us had the chance to watch the whole production of 2009. But as serious magicians, sure that voters had sufficient choice to elect the best in one's humble opinion !

Seems like J bannon, P Harris, R Osterlind are leading the contest !

Sankey's Kaleidoscope was pretty good.

That's OK, Mago--I don't even agree with me.

I have to add "Professional Opportunist by James Browns" to my list above.
I watched it with very high expectations, but James Brown did it again and topped everything.

I'm a huge Malone fan, but his Marlo DVD's were duds in my opinion. I've heard good comments on the new Bannon DVD, which I'm patiently waiting to receive. Will give my honest opinion when it arrives.

Rick, can you elaborate some. Was it the material choice, or did you think the performances were off?

Thanks

Adding to my selection of Marlo Meets Malone, I have to add the An Evening with Jack Carpenter DVD. This is what we need to see more of in magic DVDs. Top card guys jamming and sharing their insights on moves, tricks and including stories to boot. Great job Mr. Brooks!

I've gotta give a bundle of votes for Paul Gordon's Card Startlers. I've just watched all 5 hours and 50 crazily cool card tricks. Boy, what an entertainer and great creator. Yeah, and Jack Carpenter's 'evening with' is in top ten too. JP

Dear Mimo67 & Andi,

Did you get Card Startlers direct from Paul Gordon? I did and chatted to him. Nice guy, very helpful and VERY generous with both his time and offer. I got Card Startlers, Card Marvels, Corner Of Piccadilly & Jim Nastic Cards for a song! And, thank God, his (PAL) DVD plays on my DVD player in the US.

My favorites are Twin Peeks, Diminishing Not Likely, Shocked Aces, Nomadic Aces, Twister, Easy Ace Estimation, No Pockets Ultimate Transpo, Carbon Footprints...and most of the others:)

What do you guys like?

I need to do a review on it, but everyone that handles cards, get Aaron Fisher's Search and Destroy. To watch him sit at a table of people, in a restaurant is priceless. Even books can't give you that visual of how to handle an audience.

Folks watch a DVD, learn an effect and perform it and it falls flat, or it doesn't go the way it did for the Magician on tape did it with screaming people reacting. In the real world it's different and this DVD shows it and how to handle it.

I dig allot of the DVDS that came out this year. But this gets my vote.

My vote goes to John Carney's Master Sessions. It's well organised to diversify everything to fulfill each season of the year, with cards and coins that fits everyone. Oh, there is a chapter at the end, which I learned loads! Very inspiring if ones want to improve his magic.

If I can choose 5, the rest will go to James Brown's Professional Opportunist, Michale Vincent's Rhapsodies Of Silver, Manchurian Approach
Best Regards,

Bob
