Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I never cry at the movies but I will be this time... :sad:

I'm really excited but at the same time I don't know how I'll react once I see it.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I find it hard to get really excited about this. Michael is a perfectionist and would never have wanted it released. Lets face it, it was his 'This Is It' REHEARSALS, MJ will be going through the motions, similar to the Dangerous rehearsals and the footage of 'They Don't Care About Us' which was already released.

I think thats a big reason why it will be in the form of a film.......rather than just played as a concert.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I really want to see it when it hits theaters. When the time comes, I can wear "I Love MJ" t-shirt, a glove and I can use my Naruto's headband as an armband. I'm pretty sure it will be box office hit for a month or 2 after it hits, it can also help pay off Michael's debt and help support his family. I wanted to see it, not cause I was a big fan, but I also wanted to help the family for a good cause.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I have conflicting feelings about this being released in theatres.

Of course, it's a money-making scheme first and foremost. They're going to promote the SHIT out of this thing. A celebrity's death is automatically the #1 cash-making route.

At the same time though, I'm glad it'll be in theatres because people WILL flock to see it. Even those that weren't huge MJ fans are most likely going to check it out. I WANT people to see what this guy did, what he was capable of. What THEY missed out on while he was alive. It's sort of the smell of victory that will linger in the air, and I like that. Mike will have the last word.

Exactly! :yes::yes:

I guess I just have to wait again for something I truly look forward to.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

Will we see 2 DVD releases in the future, or like a Movie DVD and an more expensive one which also contains the whole (or whatever they have) of the concert clipped together as one whole show?

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

You know...a part of me thinks that really, this is how it should be. In a way, it seems so grand and poignant...like Michael timed his death perfectly. As in, he didn't want to be remembered as an old, aged man in a wheelchair, but yet as a tragic figure in a grand Shakesperean sonnet. It just all seems to coincidental...biggest comeback of his career, his life coming back on track...coming round the circle again, now he truly is the biggest performer on the planet.

Man...it just blows my mind how deep it really all feels...like there's something else at work in the cosmos just lining things up. Tragic, but very, very epic.

I got excited reading the press release. I hope he ends up having one of the #1 movies at the box office for this year. We should make it a goal!

They should make the entrance for free for the fans that can show their TII ticket receipt.
I'm hoping for a blu-ray release.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

everyone will flock to this and then they will see and then they will be sad that they missed out on him in life. Reading that article annoucement gave him the tinniest of echos of the excitment of reading O2 announcments. im begining to relearn what it is to be excited, feels good but also so so bad. This is going to be so hard but i'll be there in my planned concert outfit. Front row and ready. Let it come on.!

I can't wait to see this however I wonder if they are going to release this on DVD?

If they do they need to add some extra footage.

I can't wait to see it too. Most likely they'll release it on DVD (& possibly Blu-Ray). I hope they aren't stingy with the extra footage. :)

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I dont think I want to watch this at the cinema. Im gonna sit there and cry hysterically and walk out with swollen eyes and glands and be a complete mess. I'd rather do that at home so people dont have to witness it. Its not gonna be a happy moment for me, Im not gonna be all 'wow lets go see MJ do his last thing'... No.. Im gonna be a wreck..

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I'm looking forward to seeing it. I know it's only about 2 months away but it seems like October 30th will take forever to get here. It'd be nice if it could come on DVD around Christmas time, even better if they could make it a 2 DVD set with the Bad tour :)

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

I'm definitely going to see the film. It will be hard, difficult and sad but I know it will also be great. It's Michael after all... will definitely be crying my eyes out. So surreal. This is it.

Going alone will be difficult as it's bound to get emotional. I'm going with a few friends some are fans and others want to enjoy Michaels talents.

Re: This Is It - In cinemas October 30th

Me neither, I want to see this surrounded with people who can relate. If there's a premiere in some big city with mainly fans I might try to go, I can't really imagine going to see it in my hometown (I can't imagine it being shown there either mind you).
