Fans of iTricks/Reviews know I’m not the biggest fan of Card Magic products (DVDs especially). For those not in the know, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for card magic, but there are so many products out there that most new releases feel very unnecessary. However, with that in mind, I’m glad I had the opportunity to watch Benjamin Earl’s Past Midnight.

While advanced, the experienced cardicians will most definitely dig into several of the clever effects on here. The material available on this set comes in such a wide range that it’s difficult to quantify the use of the knowledge and qualify the magicians that’ll get the most out of this.

A ‘card-magic-only’ magician friend of mine performed the effect Ramjollock for me a while before I saw the DVD and wouldn’t give me any tips on methodology or even where I could go to learn it – he wanted to keep it for himself. When I happened upon the effect on this DVD set I did two things:
1). Sit with an evil grin on my face.*
2). Called up my friend to burst his bubble.

Bottom Line:
I wouldn’t say it’s the best DVD card set or a must have, but I can say that I enjoyed the wide range of content present and have already begun integrating a little of the material into my repertoire.
