Was pretty fucking good, in my opinion. It wasn't some in-depth look at the development of a concert, nor even at Jackson himself. Then again, it didn't need to be. This was going to make money regardless of whether or not it tanked. What It is the closet we'll ever get to seeing the finished product of what may have been one of the biggest musical extravaganzas in the last decade. It certainly isn't going to be for someone who has no intention of ever indulging in Jackson's large catalog of songs, but for anyone else it is both a spectacle of sound and sight. That same mastery of atmosphere and presence found in the Smooth Criminal and Thriller videos of old is back in full force with the weight of today's technology behind it, perhaps for the last time. 
 
But seriously, we're going to hear about Jackson for the next twenty years. This Is It, if nothing more, is a hilariously ironic title.  

Discuss.

Dude, it's going to make a shit ton of money or it is going to bomb.  (probably the first one)

Maybe I should see it. I love Michael Jackson.

It could be a turd, but since its MJ, its going to be a Golden egg laying turd no matter what. Mostly fueled by hype from his death.

I wanna see it. But I'll probably have to wait until the DVD since it's limited released here and schoolwork hasn't let me much free time.

@Black_Rose: Same here.  Except substitute school for work, and yeah, there ya go.  Wish it was school keeping me away...

I hope it's true that he had been working on two new albums that could be released at least as a demo of what could have been the greatest come back of music history. Have you heard "we are the world" demo version??, that man was an angel, we should be proud to say that we walked the same earth as him, that we lived in the time of Michael Jackson. I have tickets for today and tuesday, but I am not going till tuesday because I have an important exam tomorrow

I think it's just another way to make money. And it's gonna work.

Nothing like watching a washed-up, has-been croon using his old material.
