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.

Run don’t walk to see “The Cross”!

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

 

Take your Friends to see “The Cross”!  Jesus’ name is lifted high with this true story!

Last Wednesday Denny and I had the privilege of attending the Premiere of the movie “The Cross”.  It opened in Theaters nation wide on Friday.  For me it was especially sweet because I was able to re-unite with an old friend.  I was one of Arthur Blessitt’s original Jesus Freaks in the early 70′s, enthusiastically marching down Van Nuys Blvd. up to Sunset Blvd. shouting “give me a J” and sticking his “reds” as he calls them or stickers with scripture on them on any flat surface we could find.  

“The Cross” Producers Matt and Laurie Crouch did a fantastic job on this documentary telling the story of Arthur’s unbelievable journey.  You will laugh, cry and be astounded that this faithful servant is still alive to tell his story.  It brought back so many memories for me personally i.e. almost getting suspended from Cleveland High School for defaming school property with the “reds”…. oops, I was such a rebel :-)  Even remembering that, as a teenager, I had dated Arthur’s worship leader “Justin Time”, not a joke that is his real name!
