Blockbuster Review

Official Review

"What the hell?" was my first reaction when opening the Blockbuster package. Sankey is known for some whacky magic, but this seems to be over the top even for him. You get a small block of smooth plywood, a couple of big nails, some envelopes, and DVD.

It all makes more sense once you watch a demonstration of the trick, which I urge you to do. And after the demo, the fun really begins. For the next hour Sankey exhaustively discusses how to make magic with these simple items.

In all seriousness, Sankey has produced a model one-trick-DVD package. He generously shares many different ideas, goes over multiple handling methods in more than sufficient detail, and does so in an entertaining, if not endearing, manner. If this trick appeals to you, Blockbuster is an excellent value for the money and you'll be well down the road to making it your own after absorbing the information from the DVD. Other magicians who seem to think their 10 minute, crappy DVD is sufficient for their little-performed invention should watch this too, and learn from it. We'll all be grateful.

For A Lifetime.

That's how long your audience will remember the effect of a freely selected and signed card appearing NAILED TO A SOLID BLOCK OF WOOD!

BLOCKBUSTER is also a lethal example of Jay's own "mind over muscles" creative philosophy because Jay accomplishes this astounding effect with several surprisingly EASY TO DO methods!

Jay created BLOCKBUSTER to close shows for large and small audiences and it never fails to leave everyone completely shocked!

The large nail, the solid block of wood and the torn signed card are all unusually dramatic elements. No surprise that together they create an outstanding piece of magic.

BLOCKBUSTER comes complete with full-length instructional DVD featuring both beginner and advanced handlings. The package also includes a steel nail, envelopes, and a professionally cut and sanded block of Douglas Fir wood from Prince George British Columbia.
