Trivia

The videos were originally filmed in TV's classic 1.33:1 (4:3) aspect ratio, however for the DVD release they were presented in HDTV's 1.78:1 (16:9) format, which resulted in the top and bottom being cropped. This angered many Queen fans, since it resulted in the loss of screen information and the videos often being presented out of composition, especially in case of such music videos as "Bohemian Rhapsody", which heavily relied on picture composition.

Good, but not perfect
8 January 2004 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I this DVD is not bad, but there are a few mistakes:

1. The "widescreen" format is really annoying, as they cropped off quarter of the images. In such videos like in "Bohemian Rhapsody" it is really irritating. Because it was originally shot for normal 4:3 TVs at that time, I don't understand why it is better to show it like this. (It is the same "crime" when they crop down the half of the images of widescreen films for VHS.)

2. The DTS sound is not bad, but why there isn't Dolby Digital? Well, that is an unanswered question.

3. I think they promised something about "Bohemian Rhapsody alternate edit" in the Special Features (you know the version with the flames in it), but somehow they left it out of the final version.

4. The "Behind the Rhapsody" feature is also a deception. The documentary in which Brian shows us the original recording of the song is quite good, but in the "Making the Rhapsody" feature we watch the video over again with Roger's commentary about every half-minutes. The "Really the Best Song" option you can see only a few minutes of interviews with B. and R. but nothing else.

Although the DVD is a good one, it worth to buy it. The videos are all in perfect state. And it is a very good chance to see videos you cannot see anywhere in the last 20-30 years (like the original Killer Queen video, the uncensored Bicycle Race, and the extra videos (Keep Yourself Alive, Liar, etc.)). Also it is good for seeing about Queen itself which was UK's greatest band for 20 magical years.

P.S. GVH2. is better than this one, better videos and special features, but why no "Innuendo" videos on it?!
