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!

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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Critical review January 1, 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Michael Jackson, I had to give it 5 stars January 31, 2004
...but this is not Michael's best DVD. There are no behind the scenes, making of the video extras, and many of the videos have bee overly edited.
Noticibly absent is the controversial "panther" part at the end of "Black or white" when Michael breaks car windows, grabs his croch (ALOT) and turns into a black panther. THIS IS THE BEST PART OF THE VIDEO! It showcases some of Michael's best footwork and dance moves. (you can see it on "Dangerous: The Short Films" and "HIStory on Film, Volume I."
Fortunately "Thriller" is the full version (how can you cut the greatest short film of all time?-- YOU CAN'T!)
"Smooth Criminal" video sucks! That's right it SUCKS! It's not the amazing dance sequence seen in "Moonwalker" where Michael dances, in my opioion, his best EVER in a short film. But it is a slow motion, weird, cut-up, sequence of shots from the entire 40 minute "Smooth Criminal" video seen in "Moonwalker." Trust me, I am Michael Jackson's biggest fan, and its no good.
Also, I wish they would have put the "Moonwalker" version of "Man in the Mirror." Instead they have the mainstream one, a collection of inspirational real-life footage; its good, but I like to see Michael perform with all the passion he does in the "Moonwalker" version.
The only videos I'd say are missing are "Jam," "They Don't Care About Us" and "Remember the Time." But all the other MAJOR videos are in there. (You can see these on Michael's other DVD's.)
I am so happy, they put "Dirty Diana" and "Rock My World" in this DVD, as you can't see them on any other Michael Jackson DVD. And they are SPECTACULAR videos.
