  1. So I finally got Exile today. I watched it.
    (just to let you know, this is my first EVER review, so don't hate on me if it's not all too perfessional, but I will try.) :p

    So of course the quality of the DVD is amazing, just like all Theory11 DVDs and videos. 10/10

    Ok so, this DVD is FREAKISHLY short! It's only 12 minutes long! You only see 1 studio performance, no street performances. They don't really get into depth of how to present yourself and audience manegment. Pretty much, they show a performance, then the gimmicks, then how to use the gimmicks in 12 min. Which was pretty disapointing. 5/10

    The gimmicks themselves are pretty amazing but disapointing at the same time. I love how creative it is and how out of the box the idea is, BUT I was kinda hoping that it was a little more improptu than that. But I do like it so: 8/10

    Overall: over all I give this whole DVD about a 7/10. I love the effect, it's amazing but I would've really liked to see more detail. Love the HD video. Gimmick was pure genius but kinda disapointing as well.

    So I hope you all enjoyed my first review!!! :D

  2. Very well written review. With regard to the overall effect, however, keep in mind that while it's fun and refreshing to see and use a super cool gimmick like that of eXile, that part of the magic is what's behind the curtain.

    An analogy would be like a movie set. In the theater, you only see Iron Man and the cool, smooth, flashy effects, but behind the scenes, it's not so glamorous. Hours and hours of not-so-glamorous CGI work, stunt doubles, and hard labor on the part of a huge crew. What counts is how it looks to a spectator - that's the real magic - and that's where eXile (both versions taught in the DVD) shines.

    Enjoy it and be sure to let us know how your first performances result!
