It feels strange, to be excited for something but sad at the same time.

God...If only I'd gotten to experience the show I had tickets for in Feb 2010 I just know as soon as I'd heard the opening notes of 'Human Nature' I would be squeeling with excitement. :(

I can't wait for this film, it will be a heartwarming experience for me. I know I will cry, but I know that TII was going to be the greatest tour and show ever! I am thinking to wear my Beat It Jacket and one of my Michael Jackson T-shirts to this! :D

I watched the trailer being unveiled LIVE on the VMA's and I was just amazed and I did cry and I sang along with Michael on the songs he sang on the trailer. I was thrilled! :D

I have bought my Michael Jackson Opus book as well I can't wait to get that! :jmp:

Not too long before it's released. And I'm amazed Michael was going to be singing quite a few of his songs live. Considering in his later tours he sung live less and less.

Hey may have just rehearsed lines live, whether he'd actually be singing live in person is a different matter :)

Anyone has seen it yet? :D I watched the trailer on mtv and completely gobsmack, especially the scene where he's wearing the white tuxedo for Smooth Criminal and jumping down a stairs.

Sad thing is, I've heard that there's no moonwalk in the tapes :(

Doidn't MJ change his signature move for the show? I wonder what it was.

Rumor was that he indeed had created a new dance move that was speculated to be better than the moonwalk.

Shark_Blade
28-10-09, 01:46
I read that he comes up with a new move to dazzle us all, that can possibly top the moonwalk. Let's just see whether it's true or not.

edit: lol Jo, we wrote the same thing at exactly the same time. Funny that.:p

I went to the cinema yesterday night just for the heck of it. I was surprised there was a special premiere for Michael Jackson's This Is It considering that the nationwide release here is supposed to be today(but we had to pay a bit more for the charity women aid thingy, which is no problem for me).:D

People are packed, lining up to get their special ticket, and there's a free goodie bag that comes with it - a free t-shirt, book, leaflets about the organization, coupons and the lot in it. People are excited, more people are queing and some even commented that people are so many, we might be sitting on the floor for the screening. At that point someone joked, "If I have to sit on the floor, then This Is It, I'm leaving through the door!" which we all laughed out loud.

When we were allowed into the movie halls, we scrambled for our seats since this is a free seating session. People are very calm and well mannered to my surprise, because the usual movie goers audience in my experience are usually rude and obnoxious.

I guess because the tickets are RM51(usual price RM11), the demographic of people are much more well educated and civilized. That's nice.

About the movie, well it was great! And considering this was a rehearsal for an upcoming concert it's pretty well done. It captured Michael's glorious moments, his charming and down to earth personality, some funny moments, great dance movements with his team, some excellent graphic shows and fireworks - all the greatness in the making.

After the show ended, the audience clapped their hands. I was too sad because.. well I can't actually watch Michael anymore but I joined the crowd and clapped a bit, albeit a bit weak.

As the crowd move towards the exit, I saw a lady with a long straight hair and she's wearing a glittery black jacket similar to Michael's 'Billy Jean' outfit, to which I smiled. Some commented that it was a great show, they feel like they wanted to dance after this. The others just love the songs and music, saying it was excellent and top notched.

One of my most memorable moment was with the dance instructor which is so funny. I think they were rehearsing Smooth Criminal choreography, with the crotch groping with the boys, and how the old lady instructor sarcasticly mimicking them boys for their poor performance. Priceless, I laughed so hard. Go check it out to see what I mean. :D

Overall, I had a great time.

I went to watch this last night, it was the most beautiful thing I have seen in a long time. It was so nice to see that Michael was looking well and still had it. I absolutely loved the new Thriller movie and the extended new material. I'm definitely buying the DVD when it comes out.

I just got back from the movie theatre and man that was one good movie. considering these were just rehersals , Im sure the concerts would've been great.

and when Michael started joking about the guy on the keyboard while the two were preparing for The Way You Make Me Feel. that was funny

there was a lot of sad moments there too , especialy the end with Man in the mirror :(

I really liked when he started talking about the climate changes. it showed that he do care about the planet

all in all, great movie. this is a must see

I've just come back from seeing it. I loved it and couldn't help but imagine how amazing the show would've looked live. My son wasn't so impressed.

On a side note, maybe because it's the 3rd day but the cinema was practically empty!

Haven't watched it yet. I actually had pretty good tickets, and should have seen him in january next year. I would be living in London at the time anyway. Can't wait to see what I missed out on. MJ was so darling... Forever in my heart!
