    No more Spike Lee docs. I want to see actual interesting documentaries about MJ and his albums. Detailing the making of them and all the details fans want to hear. His documentaries just boil down to celebrities saying how great he is. There's some cool stuff sure, but in general they are not very good. The OTW one is particularly insulting.

    I'd love to see a lot more of Michael at work in the studio and I'd like to hear more from people who worked with him, over many, many years (not Quincy Jones, though.....bleeech). It's why I love listening to Brad Sundberg....but there are so many others who could make a wonderful documentary, in my opinion.

    Yes an I wish such a documentary would be broadcast on a mainstream channel at prime time. Too many times pro MJ shows are rejected by the main networks and shown off peak with only a small audience.

    Whitney Houston had a big documentary that exhibited in UK cinemas last year. There's another one coming this year too.

    Since Michael passed, nothing.

    Yes. The MJ Projects seem to miss the target most of the time.
    There was obviously lots of interest in TII and the cinemas showed that, but no wide distribution for the Spike Lee docs. to be honest I don't think they'd attract an audience to the cinema anyway as they seemed too narrow in focus for the general public, but it would be nice to see something with wider appeal like with "Whitney: Can I be Me". Trouble with MJ's story is it is too long - childhood to 51 years old and there were too many twists and turns to even attempt a single standard length documentary. The Whitney doc I mentioned is only 105mins and tells her life story (apparently)!

    I guess the only thing that would get the general public's attention is the allegations and the MJ Estate would always avoid publicising them, trouble is, they could never do a credible life story documentary without addressing them! Plus any estate sanctioned documentary will always be criticised for being too lenient on MJ and dismissed by media and general public alike. Media's criticism of Spike's docs often included that. Best we can hope for is a 3rd party documentary, but of course the MJ Estate would almost certainly refuse them the license to use MJ's music. It's a difficult situation.

    I wonder how many times the Estate have been approached by serious filmmakers intending to document his life. I'm sure there's been a few.

    Another boring greatest hits album, or horribles remixes, I expect nothing!

    To be honest, you're right.

    Most of what is said in the Spike Lee documentaries is irrelevant and it's just opinions. The way they were saying "Just Good Friends" is not a good song and that still annoys me. Nobody asked for their opinion. Many MJ fans are probably fans of the song, please don't insult the people who are supposed to buy the DVD.

    Everybody is trying to take credit for their part on the album. Too much praising Quincy but failed to mention the huge amount of work Michael put in those songs (like writing and composing them in the first place - especially true for the Bad album). Also what annoys me is not mentioning anything after Bad.

    They need to show the making process for a song. The process for making a dance routine (like the clip of MJ rehearsing the Thriller moves from the making of Thriller video). And loads of full clips of performances, recording studio, demos and rehearsals. Only Another Part Of Me was shown in full.

    Also Spike wants to do a Thriller doc but not anything after Bad. If you don't want to recognise Michael's success without Quincy, then you can go away.

    2019 was a very bad year for MJ and MJ fans...
