ProTotally captivating

ConsHe is no longer with us.

I have never been a Michael Jackson fan as such, but I think nobody could deny what a great talent the man was and I do own a copy of his Thriller album which I used to play a lot years ago. So when 'This Is It' was being shown at cinemas before Christmas and I found myself having to go and see...

Prosee review

Conssee review

"This Is It" was released on DVD in February 2010 and features rehearsal footage of Michael Jackson as he prepared for his 2009 O2 residency in London. He had sold out the first 50 dates of the show almost immediately and more dates were being added to satisfy demand. This was said to be...

ProIt would have been one heck of a show

ConsFootage not well put together

Had Michael Jackson survived to have played his fifty sold out dates at the O2 Arena in London, it would have been the biggest residency by a single artist in a single venue. Sadly, all we have left of these shows is the film version “Michael Jackson’s This Is It” which, whilst still being a...

Back in March 2009 I had a lot to look forward to. I was getting married in July, and thought my life could not get better. But I was wrong! The King of Pop Michael Jackson announced that he was to do a final set of shows, and as luck would have it, they were in my own country! I lived in Leeds...

Whilst we mere mortals were working, playing and sleeping in the spring and early summer of 2009, there was a massive tour just waiting to be finished. This was Michael Jackson's This Is It tour, the most important tour he'd ever do and one that was going to properly cement him as one of the all...

ConsHe doesn't use his full voice when singing

Being a really big Michael Jackson fan, this film is one that I could not wait to see when it started showing at the cinema. Then when it came out on DVD I knew I had to get it. The footage that forms this film, was meant for Michaels Jackson's own personal library and video for the live concerts...
