Movie Reviews

Does NOT deliver what it promises
D.B. Satzine | Raleigh NC USA | 01/30/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As a learning tool for beginners this video fails. The first 20 minutes are spent on the same kind of stretching and warm-ups you did in gym class or can read about for free anywhere. He then does 10 minutes of chigung warms ups, which are simply more slow stretching (and better presented in any book). Next theres a 10 minute demonstration moves from the short form, all seen from the front and not structured for the beginner. When he finally gets around to the form there's one runthru (front only, no replay) of about 6 minutes, and that it - 40 minutes of warmup for one demo. The production values are crummy, looks like the whole thing was shot on a home camcorder with poor focus. Having taught martial arts for years I can tell you that few beginners will get the moves from presentations like this. As a learning video for people of any age this video is poor, but putting "for seniors" in the title to hook novices or their caregivers is cheating. Save your money !"
Warning: Won't play on some DVD players

"I wish I could have posted this without a rating, because the sole purpose is to alert potential buyers.

I would love to have had the chance to view this DVD. However, it won't play on my standard Sony DVD player (this is the first time anything like this has happened).

So, while the DVD may be fantastic, you MIGHT have a problem viewing it. Hopefully the DVD's producer will read this and resolve the issue.

Sorry to be a killjoy..."
Poor picture quality, poor content

"The picture quality of this video is EXTREMELY poor, very grainy and obviously homemade with no production values. Content is thin and not well presented, there just isnt much here. If it was cheap it might be passable, but his price on this is way out of line. You'd be money ahead with a book."

"This is a great general exercises program for seniors, beginning with warm ups and stretching and continuing to chi-gung exercises and using Tai-chi movements as exercises. A fourteen movement form is shown, using the movements previously used as exercises. The form is shown from the front and again from the rear. This is a good introduction to Tai-chi and provides a well rounded exercise program. The DVD is manufactured by the "burned" system which 95% of DVD players play. Some of the players manufactured several years ago, which only play movie type DVD's, have trouble with the burned variety. If your player plays DVD-R, it will play this DVD."
