DVD Beastie Boys DVD Anthology - Criterion Collection
The Beastie Boys DVD Anthology - Criterion Collection was released

Beastie Boys fans with a firm command of DVD angle and subtitle features will find the Criterion Collection's version of the group's Video Anthology a must. Augmenting 18 videos with more than 100 camera angles and remixes old and new, the 2-disc set brings Criterion's attention to detail and quality to bear on some of the most hilarious and visually creative music clips ever. In addition to hits such as "So What'cha Want," "Intergalactic," and "Shake Your Rump," the set also includes such lesser-known cuts as "Ricky's Theme" and "Netty's Girl." Finally, director comments, a mock talk-show appearance by "the cast of Sabotage" (the Beasties' spoof of '70s cop shows), and behind-the-scenes mastermind Nathanial Hrnblowr's "The Robot vs. the Octopus Monster Saga" lend further insight into the Beasties' creative process with their collaborators.

DVDs: 'N Sync N The Mix
Late '90s contender in the time-honored sweepstakes for teen idolatry, 'N Sync is best explained by the late blues sage Willie Dixon: "The men don't know, but the little girls understand." The quintet's buoyant dance pop, chopped and channeled to weld post-New Jack rhythms with creamy harmonies, won't qualify them for their own patent application, but musica...
