Movie Reviews

Too basic
James A. Lohr | lansdale, pa United States | 11/01/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD talks about the names of the pool table and rules for 8-ball and 9-ball. Its is very basic, with nothing about how to make a hand grip, stroke, english, bank shoots, and not even some pointers on aiming. Seems like this could be presented in 15 min followed by 45 min of SOMETHING, but there is no meat in there."
Hyper, shallow, short
One reader | Naperville, IL United States | 01/15/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Well produced. Well shot. Well "acted". Very scant on teaching. I had to rewind to make sure I did not somewhat skip the explanation on how or where to aim. No more than 1 sentence is given to the subject. Only useful if you want to learn -in a hurried manner- the name of the elements, and (some of) the rules of 8 and 9 ball. A good DVD pool primer is still missing.

"Too Basic" is "Too Kind" to this DVD
C. Davey | san diego | 01/09/2008

"I agree with everything in the "Too Kind" review. The contents of this DVD could easily fit into a couple of chapters of a basic billiards book. If you are just starting out, and I mean JUST starting out, this DVD has about $5 worth of good information."
Waste of Money - Even for a Beginner

"This video will teach you things like a pool table has 6 pockets / holes, the white ball is called the cue ball and you use this to hit the other balls, and the basic rules of 8 and 9 ball (which you can find on the internet for free). If you read this review, I just saved you $20."
