The Corner DVD Set (2 DVD Set, Limited) Review

Official Review

This DVD set advertises over thirty impromptu effects. The advertisements are lying. Many of the effects require specific kinds of objects. For example, there is a linking bracelet effect that will only work two certain kinds of bracelets, which may be popular in Asia, but I haven’t seen anyone wearing a bracelet like this in America. Oh, and several of the effects require a PK ring. Um, there may be some debate over what ‘impromptu’ means, but in my book, it means, “Magic you can do on the spur of the moment with borrowed objects when you have no gimmicks or props on you, and you have no time to do any secret set up.” In other words, “Magic that can be done when you forget your PK Ring at home.”

Also, there is this weird effect with a toy ‘egg.’ Let me be clear, this doesn’t look like an egg in it’s shell, it a type of clear goo, with a yellow ball inside as the yolk. This prop looks so disgusting, and the effect involves squeezing and twisting the egg into all these weird contortions. I wanted to barf.

G, the supposed name of the man who is performing on this DVD, is Asian, and doesn’t speak at all during the whole DVD. It’s all to music with text on the screen. There are several typos on the disk, as well as on the DVD case. This could all be simply a translation problem, but the fact that they didn’t take the time to get a translator to double check everything shows their lack of respect to the purchaser.

I’d say about five of the routines, moves and ideas are interesting, and might appeal to many move monkeys, but the packaging, typos, and lies aren’t worth the fifty bucks, no matter how good a small portion of the material is.
