some of his best and worst videos
25 January 2003 | by (Winnipeg, Manitoba) – See all my reviews

I will do this review on a video by video basis,

First of all I really didn't like the "teaser" because it made MJ look like a demigod and there was no real purpose to it except an ego trip 0/10.

video 1: BILLIE JEAN (from Motown 25h show) good performance of MJ being MJ 10/10

video 2: BEAT IT good video not enough MJ dancing 6/10

video 3: LIBERIAN GIRL what's this all about huh? MJ friends 4/10

video 4: SMOOTH CRIMINAL very good video. MJ at his very best 13/10

video 5: 1995 MTV AWARDS couldn't get into first part of it but after guitar solo it got much better 8/10

video 6: THRILLER MJ classic video and second best ever 12/10

video 7: SCREAM (With Janet Jackson) strange video 5/10

video 8: CHILDHOOD okay song worse video 2/10

video 9: YOU ARE NOT ALONE can MJ become any whiter 6/10

video 10: EARTH SONG a okay song but a silly video a better one with a simular message is MAN IN THE MIRROR 4/10

video 11: THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT US (BRAZILIAN VERSION) 7/10

video 12: STRANGER IN MOSCOW sad video 8/10

video 13. BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR (refugee mix) bad song/video 0/10

extro: BRACE YOURSELF CLIPS MJ concerts and things

video grade 85/130 or 7/10
