Trivia

The video for "Tonight, Tonight" is a tribute to A Trip to the Moon (1902). Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris filmed the video the same way Georges Méliès did his film. They used a 70-year-old, hand-cranked camera shooting only one angle on a single set See more »

One smashing video collection...
6 April 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This video collection is a definite must-have for all Smashing Pumpkins fans. With the videos, behind the scenes footage, live footage from the Pumpkins final show at the Metro, and much more, it is bound to keep you glued to your television screen.

The first part is a whole jumble of videos from "Siva" to "1979" to "Stand Inside Your Love". Yes, it's the greatest hits section, can't you tell? Also included is the video for "I Am One" and a performance of "F--- You" from the Pumpkins final show at the Metro in Chicago, Illinois.

The second part is behind the scenes footage, commentary (band members, directors, etc.) and documentary. You can hear Jimmy Chamberlin talking about why he went along with hanging upside down in the "Bullet With Butterfly Wings", see Billy Corgan making a silly face in the documentary of "1979", hear about James Iha's role in "Today" and go behind the scenes with Corgan and his photographer girlfriend Yelena Yemchuk's directing of the music video for "Thirty-three".

While watching, it is amusing to compare the band from when they first started off to their final show. Whether it's the hair, clothing, makeup, video quality, or even sound, it's quite entertaining.

On a minor note, it was slightly disappointing not to see the video for "The End Is The Beginning Is The End", a song which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1997 motion picture "Batman and Robin".

That set aside, the video collection has an A in my books, and I highly recommend that you check it out.
