This is better than the 1st. It's Powerful, engaging, and fun. Buy this one.
Even better than the first one, I love these effects, very powerful and easy. Fun to do and makes your spectators' head hurt!
amazing mentalism tricks its worth the money
Darren brown trick here
Same as Mentalism 1 truly amazing
Rich's DVD's are excellent, and I'm not really disappointed I purchased this, but these effects are really not very good. Compared to Mentalism 1 and Tagged, I found the content here to be not worth the trouble.
VISIONS: 2/5 -- Rich returns to openly doing magic in his pocket. I personally do not like this, spectators know you are doing something unfair when things go into a pocket.
PSYCHOMETRY: 2/5 -- A variation on VISIONS that is much too long and convoluted for the payout in my opinion, requires more pocket magic.
UNDERCOVER: 4/5 -- This is a classic method of doing a book test, and one of the better ones, so if you don't already know how to do it, Rich gives a great tutorial here.
HIDDEN KEY: 4/5 -- Another great book test, an idea I hadn't ever thought of before. Requires no force, no page numbers, no stooges, really clean method. I don't like the idea of the mentalist having to hold the book during the word selection so I will modify this to a different technique.
WAY OUT OF THIS WORLD: I don't want any card tricks in my act, so I skipped this one.
RECOUNT: 3/5 -- I don't think this one is very practical. The payoff and reactions won't be worth the setup. You will not be able to pull this off on a determined or well attentive spectator.
LIE TO ME: 2/5 -- This effect utilizes a technique I learned in grade school. I don't think anyone will be impressed with it.
WIREGRAM EXTREME: 4/5 -- Another card trick, this one uses the Wiregram device, an amazing device, Rich's technique with it is really quite nice, and if I did card tricks this would be in my bag.
Mentalism for me is the strongest magic because people want to believe it! No one truly believes a card can really rise to the top every time but if you tell someone that you can read minds they will be on the edge of their seat. Rich offers so many ways to amaze and mystify with the simplest of tricks. I hope he comes out with a third DVD.
Thanks Rich! The effects are simple to preform and or personalize. Unfortunately now two of my coworkers fear that I'm really in the head when ever I choose to be. Their a bit afraid of me now but it's so worth it. LOL
I wanted to say that I own Tagged, Serial Biller, Mentalism and now mentalism 2 by Rich Ferguson. I would say out of all of these this is his best for mentalism. The preview for this on here I believe is horrible. It also made me not buy this dvd cause I was worried that it was going to talk about everything from the other dvd's i already owned by him. I was completely wrong. He shows 9 new tricks and the best part is you show the spectator in plain sight the gimmick for some of these tricks and they have no clue that it is a gimmick at all. Its so natural that no one would question it. I don't think any of the tricks on here would take you more than 2 hours to learn. There is maybe 1 or 2 you can do right after watching the video with no training yourself required. I would not recommend this to people who just simply can't pretend to read minds. If your not good with acting at all you may want to get Rich's Tagged DVD cause that is making predictions and not to much of reading minds. Again I just want to say one more time the preview for this DVD should be a lot better than what it is. Its almost like they don't want you to buy it kind of preview.
I purchased the first in the series and upon getting an email notifying me of Menatlism 2 I immediately placed my order and I couldnt be happier with my decision! If you are interested in some serious mentalism effects and routines...get this DVD!! Rich Ferguson, thank you for releasing this material!!
Obviously you needed more reassurance than just my great intro but Rich came out with the first one and when I got it I was thoroughly impressed with the quality and the bang for the buck. When I got an email stating there is a second one I immediately clicked add to cart no hesitation I love Rich's teachings methods and just outright great performance techniques. If you don't feel like you got a good deal out of this or learned some amazing effects or just subtleties you must be Rich but for the rest of you buy it.
