    Just came out on DVD this week (Today in fact).

    I was curious if anyone has seen it, and if so, is it any good? I have it coming in the mail tomorrow via my Netflix account that I love so much (shameless plug). I probably won't get a chance to watch it for a couple of days, but definitely plan on sitting down and checking this out this week.

    By all means, I'd love to hear any and all comments about this movie, good or bad. HOWEVER, please do NOT F**K up this thread with comments about the scandals, allegations and/or other parts of Michael's presumed excentric or other behaviors. Lets keep this about the man and his music, or at the very least, about this movie specifically.

    Thank you

    I voted "Haven't seen it and might rent someday, but no hurry"

    Michael Jackson is head and shoulders over most pop outfits of his era (and, indeed of later eras) and to see the King of Pop rehearsing would be interesting. That said, there's other things I'd prioritize above MJ so no rush.

    Haven't seen it and don't care to. Just have never been a fan at all of his music.

    Personally, I didn't care much for the Jackson 5 stuff. But his solo work from about '79 to '91 (Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad and Dangerous) are all very very good pop albums. He also was a hell of an entertainer. I'm definitely interested in this (which of course is why i rented it right away).

    Re: Michael Jackon - This Is It

    When I hear the name Michael Jackson I just float back to a club I used to go to called the Raquet Room.I got some crazy looks the first time I walked in the place wearing cowboy boots,a ZZ Top Tshirt, & a Leather Jacket but that was the pre-hangout with friends from work before we'd go see Local Bands. Anyway, when I think of Jackson I think of being in that club with my Members Only Jacket w/ the sleeves rolled up & songs like "Rock With You","PYT","Don't stop Til You Get Enough","Thriller","Beat It", & "Billie Jean" blared through the club as girls filled up the Dance Floor. I grew to like these songs partly due to visions of all the girls on the Dance Floor in my head & not the videos of MJ dancing, moonwalking, & grabbing his crotch.
    I don't have any desire to see this movie but I'll always still have his music(well...the 10 or 15 songs I like between his solo & Jackson 5 career). For the record my favorite tune is his duet with Mick Jagger on "State of Shock" by the Jacksons on their 'Victory Album'. That song has a cool riff running through it
