It´s been fouor years since the Greatest video hits 2 DVD came out....
and still not DVD versions of the music videos like I´m going slightly mad and Headlong.
When are they gonna release the third DVD???.
I don´t want to see these bullshit a night at the opera DVD things or anything like that.....

Maybe special remixed Innuendo DVD????

please comment this and let´s make things happen.
Because i want that the third video hits DVD
to come out in the stores as soon as possible....

I'd rather have an early concert than a re-release of videos easily found on YouTube that we've all seen a thousand times.

I like the commentary tracks though. The commentary on the "Body Language" video was worth the price of the DVD alone. :)

For me at least, it's not only about the videos, but for the 5.1 surround mix, can't wait to hear the videos from Innuendo and Made in heaven in dts 5.1. :)

First I'm going to buy a 5.1 system. Then I'm going to start bitching about the videos :P

Still, it would be nice to hear "Innuendo" (the song) in 5.1. And can you imagine "Mother Love"... mindblowing!

Videos in youtube are all so bad quality.
It´s not joy to see those.

And maybe some footage of making made in heaven and innuendo albums????.
That would be a masterpiece DVD.
An could end the DVD series so perfectly.

It´s just my opinion....
but i´m quite sure i´m not alone with my thinking.

I would not get too excited about hearing the tracks in 5.1

For one thing the center channel is not used.

The greatest video hits series must have had it´s end. without it the early releases lost their meaning.

Not really actually. The picture quality is amazingly bad.

a greatest videohits III would make the series "complete". So it would be nice if an official dvd would be released. Just a short while ago a friend gave me a Greatest Video hits III dvd, compiled by someone. I do have all the material on official releases of taped from television, but it's a nice collection on one dvd.
But yes, an official one would be appreciated.

Yeah the picture quality sucks for the most part, as well as most videos being cropped to the wrong ratio. And the audio is mostly 4.1, but maybe enough time has passed that volume 3 would be an improvement.

Meanwhile, there are other ways to get decent quality versions of the remaining videos. VHS, laserdisc and pirate DVDs of Flix II, Flix III, Rocks. A few are on the official 'Jewels' DVD from Japan too.

I do hope there's something released on DVD this year and not just the new Queen + PR album, but I doubt it would be this.

What about the infamous 'track 13' off MIH in 5.1? What a trip that would be!!! And from Innuendo, certainly the title track is intriguing but even more so may be All God's People cranked so high my windows shatter!!!

Ooooh, can you imagine what "Bijou" would sound like in 5.1? :)

They should release it with the Innuendo EPK among the extras.

At least we have that on YouTube

Flix 2 (and Flix 1) are actually easily available as Brazilian DVDs, even from major retailers.. they are even called 'Official' by many people. Here's my little page with details about Flix 2:

http://queenguy.50webs.com/flix2.htm

Has menu and screen caps.

And here it is for sale:

I've seen it other places online but of course can't find it now.

Haven't posted in this forum much but just wanna say: I got a good 5.1 system for christmas and all the remixed surround songs sound AMAZING!!! The message..."I wouldn't bother - there's no centre channel" (or whatever the quote was!) is SOOO silly!!! Cos the stereo rears on their own are worth the price alone! Especially the guitars behind you in The Invisible Man. Also having a phantom centre is fine.
Roll on ADATR coming out in 5.1!!!


Dead Daddy Long-legs. I'm still drinking it.

Anyone who says that, doesn't think about the big picture. Center channel be damned. In my recent mixings of surround sound dvd's for my theatre, the center channel is sometimes fine for songs. But to give the boost the vocals needed, it had to be spread into the front stereo to gain any depth. So, really, it's not that great a feature to place vocals in the center after-all. I'm hearing more and more releases use the other 4 channels to spread the vocal out. So, in all honesty, the center is really a film dialogue thing. Not an important music dvd thing at all.

It's a personal thing. I personally think that the surround mixes on those DVD's sound like crap. I'm happy for you that you like them, but they do nothing for me.

The ANATO and The Game DVD Audio mixes are amazing but the video hits DVDs don't even come close.

But as i was pointing out that it would be a great offer to have Greatest video hits 3 as soon as possible, because truly it has been four years since the last video hits DVD.

And also there are behind the scenes things on innuendo and I´m going slightly mad, and also These are the days of our lives, because i have heard of that so many times on the internet, from so many peoples.

But a new DVD would be a masterpiece.
So Bring it out as fast as you can.
WE NEED IT!!!!
