Green Day - International Supervideos is a collection of ALL of their videos, excluding their latest releases (Macy's Day Parade). Unfortunately there was no video made for Welcome To Paradise, but these things happen. The video for Geek Stink Breath was actually banned by MTV for being too graphic - believe me, if you are squeamish you will not want to watch it all the way through.
Warning - this collection is censored throughout for bad language. This is very disappointing just to achieve a PG rating. It would have been much better to leave the videos untouched.
This is a great collection of music & videos. However, it IS only 49 minutes long. As far as I am concerned, you should get more for your dollar. Having said that - this is a very enjoyable DVD and would be a necessity for fans.

The music videos are presented in the full-frame aspect of 1.33:1 - what more do you expect for music videos?
Sharpness is good throughout without being exceptional. There are small amounts of grain present in a number of the tracks, particularly the older tracks, but this is due mainly to the photographic process. Shadow detail is fine with no low level noise. Be aware that music videos often do not lend themselves to being of excellent video quality, however this is inherent in the source material and not a transfer fault.
Colour is very well saturated throughout with many of the videos showing excellent colour levels.
There were no MPEG artefacts present throughout the transfer. Film-to-video artefacting is limited to aliasing. 9:23 - 9:40 (shirt) and 46:45 (bass guitar strings) are some of the more obvious occurrences.
The main feature is accompanied by full song lyrics. The lyric subtitles are great, allowing me to sing along loudly and tunelessly!
This is a single-layered single-sided disc. Not surprising with only 49 minutes of feature.
Dialogue quality is fine throughout, although this often doesn't help you to understand the song lyrics. That is what you use the subtitles for! Audio sync was fine.
Being a stereo only track there was no input from the surrounds. Redirected bass made good use of the subwoofer.
