Michael Jackson's This Is It Movie Review

Michael Jackson's This Is It Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 30, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Even though This Is It is not really a movie for kids, and some of you may not want to or be allowed to watch it, we thought we'd review it for you because so many kids out there love Michael Jackson.

Kidzworld saw This Is It - the new movie about Michael Jackson's last days - in theatres. Even though it's not really a movie for kids, and some of you may not want to or be allowed to watch it, we thought we'd review it for you because so many kids out there love Michael Jackson.


Musical Movie

This Is It is a concert film that's actually a rehearsal film - it is made up of footage that was taped while The King Of Pop was rehearsing for his latest concert tour.


The rehearsal took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California - the inside of the center, up on the big stage, is where most of This Is It, the movie, takes place.


As we watched Michael Jackson prepping for his upcoming 50-night show (which was supposed to happen in London, England, at the O2 Arena, we felt sorta funny. It always feels odd when you watch someone on the big screen who you know has already passed away. It was kind of a sad thought.


In fact, MJ passed away on June 25, 2009. He hadn't been planning on making this rehearsal footage into a feature film - he had only asked for himself to be taped practicing his songs and moves on stage for his own personal archive. That kind of makes this movie, well, not a movie. It's just different scenes put together - the scenes don't even necessarily fit together, like the story in a real movie do.


Super Songs

Even though it really wasn't like watching a REAL movie, which has a beginning, a middle and an end, This Is It was great because of the songs and the music. If you see the film you'll get to see Michael Jackson perform hits like Wanna Be Starting Something, Thriller, Beat It, The Way You Make Me Feel and even some classic Jackson 5 songs like I Want You Back and I'll Be There.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!!

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
