    That set is expensive but it looks great. I hope they re-release the film on Blu-Ray/DVD with unseen rehersals at some point. Like Dangerous and Dirty Diana. They could also add full versions of some of the rehearsals seen in the film.

    I truly don't know how to feel about this.

    On the one hand, the Estate is preoccupied with the HBO trial to put effort into a quality project.

    On the other, that means they shouldn't have released anything at all if they couldn't devote adequate time to it.

    Then again, fans have been incessantly and unfairly complaining about things without any regard for price or income, so maybe this is an attempt at pacifying them. (Plus, given the general attitude of the community, I'd say this amounts to "just desserts.")

    Then again, this is monstrously overpriced given the included content.

    Then again, I love the product and merch designs, and if it were about $250 cheaper I'd buy one.

    Then again, this ruined our ten-year expectation of getting the unseen songs ("Stranger in Moscow" and "Dangerous").

    As someone who will defend the Estate whenever necessary, projects like this are massively disappointing. I honestly think it would've been a better idea to give us nothing at all this year. Sigh.

    I honestly don't know why people say this.

    It's not as if the two Johns sit in a room and do all this stuff themselves.

    They pay lawyers to take the burden of the HBO case.
    They pay completely separate creative teams to put together products.

    Aside from providing a less than ideal time period for release, the HBO issue should not prevent good products being created.

    The fans' expectation for a 10 year anniversary edition was (as far as I know) completely baseless, so we were't promised anything, and from that point of view they haven't under-delivered. BUT yes this product is far too expensive for the content. I provided links earlier. Really this set should be half the price (MAXIMUM!).

    ^^ That seems to be the general reaction I've seen online.

    MJ fans are fussy, but I don't think we're being unreasonable on this occasion.

    That would be cool, but the original This Is It vinyl soundtrack is still in stock at many places, so I doubt they will release that considering the original didn't sell out.
    Put all your energy into your finger and throw it out like fire.

    I'm not mad about this. i'm glad they did something "new" just it's too expensive and we already have half this stuff.

    Can’t wait until someone else takes over the Estate and can actually do things right for a change.

    It’s basically the same shit. This is nothing new.
    "Who's bad? You're telling me, you're doing wrong, gonna lock you up for far too long, you're doing wrong, you're doing wrong, you're doing wrong brother, who's bad? YA KNOW, YA KNOW IT, YA KNOW, YA KNOW IT OOOH, you're doing wrong, ya know, ya know it, ya know, ya know it, you're doing wrong, gonna watch yo mouth boy, just watch yo mouth boy, that's your brother, that's your mouther, that's YO SISTER, asked me... if you're doing wrong?

    SHHHHHHHHH AH!" - Mike's bad, that's who.

    I really like This Is It despite all the stuff we now know because it shows how genius, humble and friendly Michael was with 50 and not the freak the media wanted him to make. I would have loved a big 10th anniverary-release with some new footage. But this year is not the time for a big release.

    So this 1000-items is not made for a big audience or complaing fans. When there is never seen footage it is a right decision to release it not yet and use it ot another anniversary. The 1000 items will be sold out quickly.

    This should be 150 max. Not even any new footage or anything. They are so out of touch, and I'm someone who usually buys stuff like this.

    Who said they won't? But only people with OCD are going to buy this. You know, those who NEED to have anything MJ related. This is not worth any cent imho.
