Michael Jackson's This Is It - DVD Review


Starring Michael Jackson and Kenny Ortega.
Directed by Kenny Ortega.

This is the ultimate behind-the-scenes documentary, as we get to see dress rehearsal numbers we never would have seen had MJ lived to opening night. It's a tribute to the performer, and while it doesn't provide much insight into the notoriously shy entertainer, it is pretty cool to watch a professional at work. And for 110 minutes, the freak show that surrounded him the past 15-20 years disappears. It's just a testament to why he was the biggest pop star of the 1980's, and he looks as in shape as any 30-year-old dancer.
