3.0 out of 5 stars Madonna - The Ultimate Collection, 27 Dec. 2004

This review is from: The Ultimate Collection (Box Set) [DVD] [2000] (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. I wouldn't have been upset if they hadn't gone shouting about it being the "ultimate" collection but as it stands, this DVD is anything BUT ultimate. My only real praise for it is that it does have 26 classic Madonna video's as well as the MTV performence of "Vouge" as a nice bonus. The picture and sound is very good, and it IS a good item for any Madonna fan to own, but the fact that it is FAR from being the "ultimate" collection forces me to give it no more than three stars.
Hopefully one day Madonna fans will have justice and get a nice, proper collection rather than this almost sorry excuse!
