Particular Freeze Time Popcorn Effect

Ok... I've been learning slowly but am having trouble with this one... I'm attempting to create an effect where I throw a deck of cards up in the air and they all kinda freeze in space, then I can walk thru them and push them out of the way... then make them all fall to the ground. The best example of the effect I'm trying to acheive is a scene from the movie Big Fish where Ewan MacGregor is walking thru frozen time and walks thru some popcorn hanging in mid air and pushes the kernals away to get thru as they fall to the ground. Here's a video clip of the scene I'm talking about on YouTube:
The effect starts at :44 and goes to 1:00... I've been trying to acheive this same kinda look but can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong with Particular 2.0... maybe I'm doing something wrong. Any advice or suggestions would help tremendously.
