    Michael wasn't acting strange in any footage we've saw of the TII rehearsals imo. He was putting less effort in yes, but that's cause it was rehearsals.

    I don't think he's acting strange or looking sick. Skinny maybe, but not sick, in fact he's quite energetic on stage. I'm glad they are showing it. Believe me, compared to some of today's artists, even his rehearsals look fabulous and on a whole another level.

    I'm going to watch it, but on TV? Neh, I'm going to watch it on my Blu-Ray in full HD with the surround sound.

    Waw surround sound, you have a pretty good home theater there. I will be looking at it too and enjoying my blu ray.

    Unlike some here there is nothing in TII that makes me think of AEG. I refuse to let Michael's last creative performance be spoiled by negative thoughts. I guess it is just the way people see things.

    I always find it difficult to watch it because Michael is gone now. But I think people should watch it. You see how Michael worked and how much he cared. You also see someone who knows what he wanted to happen on stage. He wanted it to be special and I appreciate that. He did have happy moments being back on stage and I feel sad that he couldn't have at least 1 show. You appreciate him as an artist and as a person.

    Exactly my thought's.
    You inspired me to dream big. You taught me to love unconditionally. You taught me to do unto others, what thou does to self. And most of all you taught me not judge until the truth sets on free. And because of it all...I Love You, Michael. And I always will.

    I do sometimes find it hard to watch This Is It, in the sense that it can get emotional. No way in hell am I letting AEG get in the way of some of Michael's last performances. Never even thought of how they treated him getting in the way of me enjoying TII. I love watching it in Blu-Ray though. The shots filmed in HD look absolutely stunning! Sony are known for producing excellent-looking Blu-Rays and This Is It is no exception!

    Question though: Has This Is It never been shown on UK television or something (hence the word 'premiere')? Or has it been shown on UK television before, just not on Channel 5... asking this because I know of movie channels (not in the UK) that aired it a good 3 years ago...

    I wish the media would show something that shows him in his prime as many times as they show TII. But if it's a "premiere" maybe they show it for the first time in the UK? In my country they have played it many times and while it's nice I wish they'd show something like Wembley'88 or Bucharest'92 something that shows him in his prime, rather than playing TII over and over again.

    I don't think he's "acting strange" (don't even know what was meant by that by the poster who said it), but he's obviously not in his prime and we know by now why. To me it's just hard to watch, especially knowing what went on behind the scenes.

    The penguin move is not strange? Makes me cringe every time. The clothes are not strange? The earth song footage is horrible coz he looks like he's about to drop. The bit where he on stage with Travis Payne and the floor is rising he looks totally ouy of it.. Travis is guiding him and he looks like he's disoriented and is gonna drop. Some parts of the film are great. others are odd. In others is just sad too see a legend reduced to that. I loved it when it came out but can't watch it now. Sorry don't want to disrupt the thread.


    I don't this is the first time in UK tv, just the first time on channel 5.

    this is very cool, I like the film very much, it shows michael being a perfectionist and the little community that is created during rehearsals:-) and I don't think he is acting strange and honestly I love the clothes!

    and we shouldn't be ashamed with Michael, never! he had his problems, it would have been great if someone could have really helped him, but anyway he was an amazing human being and a great performer!

    I don't think it's horrible, nor do I think "he's acting strange" and the things bobmoo79 listed aren't strange to me. I feel like they are exaggerated by him a bit. But it's true that it's not MJ's best and TVs (at least where I am) always keep playing it as if it's MJ's best or something and I'm a bit tired of it because it's absolutely not his best and I wish the focus went back on his peak a little instead.

    Not everybody has to agree with me. It's fine.
    I just wish a mainstream channel would give some airtime to the Wembley concert, Ghost, or maybe show some positive documentary about MJ rather than show TII. It's not a big deal.

    (BTW the 'penguin' move was a name given by the fan community to that weird arm swinging motion during Human Nature. I'm not sure why they called the penguin but never mind...)

    Ahh yes, that one! It's a bit awkward but I've always seen it as a spur of the moment thing to be honest... still don't think he acts strange throughout though.

    I don't think channels will play Wembley until a version of adequate visual quality is release. We live in a world where many TV stations are now broadcasting in high definition, they don't want to purchase a license for a VHS-quality 2 hour concert that's 1/4 the resolution of HD. There have been rumours that film negatives have been sourced in the last year or something, so in a few years time when the Estate releases and licenses a higher quality version, then I think we'll start to see more of MJ at his peak.
