Movie Reviews

Surprised her videos made it on DVD.

"I bought this DVD only because this was all I could get from Vanessa Williams - her videos that is. I never suspected that any of these videos, especially 'The Right Stuff', would ever see the light of day in DVD format. However, I am glad these videos were released even if it represents a slight portion of all her music videos. I would like to see a full release of her music videos with the following that were cut from this DVD: "He's Got the Look", "Darlin, I", "The Comfort Zone", "Work to Do", "What Will I Tell My Heart", "Just for Tonight", "Love Is", "The Way That You Love", "What Child Is This", "Colors of the Wind", "Where Do We Go From Here", "Happiness", and "Open Your Eyes, You Can Fly".If you can cope with just the few videos on this DVD, as any fan of Vanessa Williams should, I suggest you purchase this DVD. There's some great stuff here that you should not miss."
This DVD is just incomplete

"The 20th Century Masters collection has now invaded the DVD scene! This collection is just too brief to show Vanessa musical career while under WIng Records then turned into Mercury Records. But the videos included in this set does show some of Williams most popular singles such as her first hit "The Right Stuff" and her international hit "Save The Best For Last." What I do not understand is why did Universal not at least include "Colors of the Wind" on the DVD?"
A Good Start

"It is a great start. It is unfortunate that only a few of Vanessa's videos are on this collection and there are absolutely no interviews or BTS footage whatsoever! Vanessa is back on the music scene now so hopefully she will release a compilation that includes ALL of her videos and give her fans some rare live stuff too. I had the chance to see her in concert this past December and she is phenomenal on stage!! I took my teenage daughter along and she bacame an instant 'V' fan!!

Good Videos... but incomplete reflections

"For Universal, they've really been quite able to capitalize on the feeling of their 20th Century masters collection so much with the CD's, but now the feel of the DVD's are quite ironic on the downside. Considering, most of them do overlook great videos, and only offer the value within the acrtual bbudget price. That has happened with so many acts like Patti LaBelle, Styx, Olivia Newton-John, and the former Miss America, Vanessa Williams. Yet for Vanessa, her music has always find a way to bring beauty and elegance to the mainstream, but for a decent collection of her music videos, that just hasn't happened here.

20th Century Masters: Vanessa Williams is a DVD that only features five of her soulful music videos from her career, with a lot of beauty in her voice. The videos range mostly from her first 2 records, The Right Stuff and The Comfort Zone with videos for The Sweetest Days, the #1 ballad Save The Best For Last, Dreamin', and Runnin' Back To You. The videos are great and dynamic, but there are just too few tracks here as a far cry from the 20th Century Masters album. The DVD overshadows quite a lot of music videos includng the videos for Happiness, Colors Of The Wind, The Look from The Right Stuff, The Way That You Love, and other great songs.

While Vanessa Williams fans might be a bit dissapointed in this DVD collection, it is a very decent music video collection but could've been improved quite a bit. This is a big problem for the 20th Century Masters DVD edition. Still, it is a good price for die hard Vanessa Williams fans but others may just want to buy the CD instead of the DVD. This one might want to be saved for last, until a better collection of her videos comes out.
