Early Viewing…This Is It…the Michael Jackson Movie!
It’s late and I am too tired to write a proper review of the MJ Movie that Lysa, Amy and myself went to see tonight. The theater in Foothill Ranch was not exactly a sell out, maybe 30 percent filled. We sat between a woman that coughed every uummm… 45 seconds, not exaggerating. And a family that took their 5 kids, ages 5,4,3,2,1 to a 9 pm movie, but I digress. Ignoring the outside irritation I give it a C+. I love production, choreography, behind the scenes stuff and getting to see that aspect up close and personal was cool. They showed a snippet of the audition process for the dancers. Having been a dancer I really enjoyed that part… but it was just a snippet… would of loved more of that. Seeing Michael relaxed was fascinating. Glad I went and some of the dance sequences were wonderful. It would of been a fantastic show. Warning!!! and I was afraid of this. There is an icky crouch grabbing scene at the end that I really could of done without and the “inspirational” moment following it was weird. A little too much MJ worship for me. I have to wonder if Michael really would of been very happy that this was made into a movie… not so sure about that.
