"This Is It" The Michael Jackson Movie

Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:30 am

I went and saw this movie tonight and I must say, as a Michael Jackson fan, it was simply amazing, between the video clips introducing the songs to the behind the scenes footage of everyone involved in the concert to the footage of Michael singing both his classics as well as his more recent stuff, it was a fitting tribute to a man who truly was the king of pop and a one of a kind performer the likes of whom we'll probably never see again in our lifetimes. Not only could he sing, but he still had the dance moves as well.

Has anyone else seen the movie? What did you think?
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!

Good to hear your report. I have tickets for Friday and I look forward to it. I never got to see him perform in person but always respected his considerable talent.

I went to the premiere in NZ on the biggest screen in the country, and I really enjoyed it. Really great. I loved his musical variations and the way he could could envisage everything in his head.

It must be a generation thing, he had talent, no doubt about it, but he was a kook, a possible deviant. Talent is not a license.

The critics here were really mixed.. in one newspaper it got 1 out of 6 stars, in another it got 5 out of 6 stars.. useless... now I have to see it for myself to find out what it's really like

Never really liked any of his songs except maybe 2. He is way overrated, but that's probably just me.

I am not the greatest fan of his music, but I was dragged along to see it. I expected to be bored stiff but I am glad I went, it was really good - it would have been an impressive series of concerts.
