A Thriller , indeed: all 17 #1s plus a brand-new song ( One More Chance ) by the most prolific hit-maker of all time! That's the CD ( Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough; Rock with You; Billie Jean; Beat It; Thriller; Bad; Smooth Criminal; The Way You Make Me Feel; Man in the Mirror; Black or White; Earth Song , and more); the DVD has the great gloved one's videos for all of the above plus four more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Revolutionized MTV November 23, 2003
Format:DVD
1. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
2. Rock With You
3. Billie Jean
4. Beat It
5. Thriller
6. Bad (short version)
7. The Way You Make Me Feel (excludes beginning few minutes)
8. Man In The Mirror
9. Smooth Criminal (fast/blurry version)
10. Dirty Diana
11. Black or White (includes Macaulay Culkin segment but excludes panther segment)
12. You Are Not Alone
13. Earth Song
14. Blood On The Dance Floor (re-edited version)
15. You Rock My World (excludes beginning few minutes)
The very basic packaging tells you that this is a no frills DVD. Many of MJ's best videos are presented and that is all you get. No fancy menu or insert. No live performances, interviews, commercials or still gallery. Nothing. Not even a discography. This doesn't cut it in this day and age of DVD. The videos are great, but this is hardly a difinitive collection. Expecially since all of these (save "You Rock My World") are already available on other discs. And why do video collections keep getting released with shortened or re-edited videos? We want the FULL original video ok! Is that too much to ask?
It's hard to go wrong with an MJ music video and these are all great. But this DVD could have (and should have) been definitie. Instead it's just yet another collection of videos collectors already have.

By D. Mok
Format:DVD
If you were like me and already owned the two DVDs of HIStory (Video Greatest Hits - HIStory and HIStory on Film - Volume II), you were probably disdainful when this Number Ones DVD got released. Almost everything on Number Ones was already presented in the HIStory DVDs.

So is there buying incentive? At bargain-bin prices, yes, because on this DVD you will find three Michael Jackson videos that range from good to fantastic, and they're not available on DVD outside of here.

"Man in the Mirror" was a flat-out ballsy move on Jackson's part, to use only grainy stock footage and not a single shot of himself to make a video of one of his greatest hits of that time ("Man" was one of two singles from Bad that had two weeks at #1, not one). The song itself is a classic, thanks to one of Quincy Jones' best productions, a soul-stirring rhythm track, and Siedah Garrett's poetic, visionary lyrics, but coupled with the video's images of a world in turmoil, it's magic. This style actually spawned another classic music video years later with Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train", but Jackson was there first.

"Dirty Diana" holds a special place for me because it's one of the very few Jackson performance videos. Many people don't like the song, but I like it just fine, and Jackson and guitarist Steve Stevens were on fire in the stage show. This video made you realize that Jackson's touring band simply kicked ass.

There's one more curio: The short, sped-up version of "Smooth Criminal" intended as a broadcast alternative. This was the first version of this classic video I ever saw, and while it doesn't convey the stunning choreography and art direction of the full version, it is a masterpiece from the editing standpoint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Well I Feel Ripped Off! August 23, 2008
Format:DVD
I'm not criticising Michael Jackson here, and the fact that there are no commentaries on these film clips or interviews with Michael, he probably has no idea this con job of a DVD collection was even released.

The whole problem and feeling that I was ripped off comes from the fact that they do not mention on the packaging anywhere and especially with the track listing, that these film clips on here are either not the versions played on TV in the 80s etc, or if they are, they have been severely edited with huge chunks cut away. There's a few still in their original version including his (and music's) greatest film clip of all time Thriller. What's going on with the rest though? If they need room get rid of the fillers like Blood on the Dance Floor (a song so bad even Michael struggles to dance to it and spends most of the film clip sitting on a chair).

They should have listed the tracks that aren't the real or full versions with brackets such as with Smooth Criminal (crappy low budget doesn't resemble in any way the one you remember version) Bad (shorter starts half way though actual film clip), Black and White (controversial vandalism of car, panther turning into scenes not included) etc If they were honest and did this only the hardcore Michael Jackson fans who already have the other longer film clip versions would buy this so they have these alternative versions. The rest of the public who expect the same version they saw on their TV screens back in the 80s and so forth wouldn't feel ripped off. Everyone would be happy!

Of course if the record company actually did that they'd make less money, but that would have been the moral thing to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Critical review January 1, 2004
Format:DVD
This is going to be the most critical review I will ever do of Michael Jackson. "Number Ones" was Ok, but it could have been so much better.
Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough: A bit better than the video for "Rock With You" but not that great.
*
Rock With You: Basically just Michael singing in front of laser lights.
*
Billie Jean: This is a good one. Michael is being followed by a secret agent, who is trying to prove he slept with "Billie Jean". Whatever Michael touches lights up. Interesting.
****
Beat It: This is good too, like all the videos (rather, short films) from the album Thriller. Michael is lying on his bed, telling you about these 2 gangs who are out to get him. Then he goes out and unites the 2 gangs, they are all dancing together in the end.
*****
Thriller: This is the original, full-length Thriller. And it's great, even by today's standards. Excellent use of all-real special effects (no computers used). Thriller is basically a mock-horror film, lots of zombies and stuff.
*****
Bad: This is not the full-length Bad. I don't know why, but this DVD shortens/speeds up a lot of Michael's best short film, and it's really annoying. Well anyway, even though Bad is short, it's cool. Great choreography.
***
The Way You Make Me Feel: Ok, Michael basically is chasing a girl.
**
Man In The Mirror: Doesn't actually show Michael, instead it shows policticans, famine and war victims, Mother Theresa, you get the point. It has a nice message, but I don't think it was a good choice for this DVD, which was meant to be chowcasing Michael's talents.
*
Smooth Criminal: This is NOT the original Smooth Criminal.
