Thank You God, for Michael Jackson!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Michael Jackson's This Is It (DVD)
I was never a big fan of MJ. I never owned one of his records. I did really like his videos whenever I saw them on MTV, way back in the 80s. But other than that... Fast forward to 2009. I went to see this movie just because I love music and I was saddened to hear of Michael's passing. Curiosity and remembering that I did like his singing & dancing. WOW, WOW, WOW! As someone said, he was sooo real. We get to see Michael while he was working, you know, just being himself, not "performing" - and what a wonderful, warm, humble, caring human being he showed himself to be. And he never knew that any of us would ever see this video footage. But by us seeing it, I know that he won those of us over, who had never payed attention to his brilliance. And that is what I now know of him, he was BRILLIANT, he was a GENIUS! So now I have bought, and watched so many times I lost count, his live performance in Bucharest, and I've seen the movie "This Is It" 4 times. I've cried during it twice. And I can't wait for it's release because I will surely have it in my collection and be glad to now know who was Michael Jackson. And I have also purchased the music from the movie, "This Is It" on CD. And I LOVE it! Every single song is just fabulous! I can't make myself listen to anything else! Over & over. I only feel sorry that it took his death for me to pay any attention to MJ. But just imagine, even in death, he is still gaining new fans! And we will always, always miss you, Michael.

I know how you feel, I haven't seen the movie yet because it was not playing in a theater near me. But yeah, since he died I've been reading all kinds of stuff abou thim, and watching clips, all positive things of course, and I can't believe how much I missed out on while he was alive. I am grateful that I atleast allowed myself to enjoy his music and videos that I did hear and see over the years and that I ignored the character assasination of him by the tabloid press and even some mainstream media outlets. I like you just wish it didn't have to be his death that prompted my interest in him again.
