From Amazon.co.uk

In the world of music video looks are indeed everything and few stars have been better suited to exploiting the constantly mutating tastes of MTV faddism than the woman who literally looks like a million dollars. Showcasing Madonna's gift for associating herself with the prime movers in music and style, all the videos collected in this comprehensive two-disc collection are beautifully shot and instantly evoke the mood swings of popular culture in the 1980s and 90s. The Immaculate Collectioncovers the earlier period from "Lucky Star" to "Vogue", with highlights including the Catholic soap-opera of "Papa Don't Preach" and the videos for "Express Yourself", "Oh Father" and "Vogue" that helped send David Fincher on this way to directing features such as Seven and Fight Club.

A Fincher video for "Bad Girl" also opens the second collection, covering the years 1993 to 1999, with Mark Romanek's treatment for "Rain" the standout offering from the first eight songs. Despite these early highlights, however, there is no denying the degree to which the videos get noticeably better overall when good songs are the driving force in the collection's second half, comprising five tracks from the Ray of Light album and the Austin Powers theme "Beautiful Stranger". Compared to the lightweight covers of "Fever" and "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", the pseudo-surrealism of "Bedtime Story", and flimsy flirtation with S&M in "Human Nature" these later videos are marked improvements. Although the Thomas Crown Affair eroticism of "The Power of Goodbye" already seems a little dated, the morphing black witch of "Frozen" and life on speed of "Ray of Light" are both wonderfully realised. Best of all is the closing moment of "Substitute for Love" when, having survived paparazzi harassment and the harsh, transmogrifying faces of the crowd, Madonna and child conjure a truly arresting moment of private joy and vindication. Nowhere is her ability to take the potentially embarrassing and make it both playful and moving more evident.

Neither disc features any extra components, but the excellent sound quality is a reminder of why the music video format has been rejuvenated by DVD; buy The Ultimate Collection and your greatest hits CD will never seem quite the same again. --Steve Napleton

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the ultimate...... 8 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is undoubtably a great collection of videos, which show Madonna's ability to adapt with the times. But it's a bit of a cheek calling it the 'ultimate' collection. If some videos were missing due to quality control, then fine. But videos missing include 'Into the Groove' (one of her best selling singles), 'Don't Cry for me Argentina', 'Crazy for you' and 'Justify my Love'. I can understand why they may be missing (various things like being film related, or too much for the PG rating of the DVD), but it does keep it from being a 5 star release.

3.0 out of 5 stars Madonna - The Ultimate Collection 27 Dec 2004
By Tania
Format:DVD
I really don't think the makers of this product should have been allowed to call it the "ultimate" collection because it just isn't. Infact it's a very incomplete collection in my opinion...I'm a huge Madonna fan, I've been one since "Music" came out and discovering her older work made me really fall in love with her as an artist. I'm now the type of fan who will buy almost anything if Madonna has something to do with it, so naturally I had to buy this two disc DVD boxset.
As I said, calling it the Ultimate collection is, in my opinion, a gross case of mis-representation. How can it be "ultimate" if half of Madonna's music video's are missing? I can understand that the video's which are soundtracks to movies are missing...maybe there were issues with owner rights or something, but it is still awful that video's like "Into the Groove", "Crazy For You","Who's That Girl", "The Look of Love", and "This Used To Be My Playground" are no where in sight.
More importantly, how can they include the risky "Human Nature" but leave out "Erotica" and "Justify My Love"? I understand that the content of these video's may be too mature but "Human Nature" isn't exactly family friendly either. What's more, how can they include the MTV performence of "Vouge" but leave out "Dear Jessie" and the UK version of "True Blue"? They don't even include Madonna's very first video's "Everybody" and "Burning Up!" It would've been nice to have a clip of Madonna performing "Holiday" on Top of the Pops from 1983 but since that's not a music video I can see why they didn't include such a feature and don't blame them.
However, I think this is a VERY badly put together boxset.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 dvds in one package 24 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
This set includes madonnas immaculate collection dvd and her 93-99 dvd. Madonna is the queen of pop , her ideas and songs stand alone has a testement of her greatness. This set shows a selection of her hit videos over the last 2 decades. The video has always been a great medium for madonna and these iconic videos should be in everyones collection.
Getting this set also is cheaper than buying both separate so its great value.
