I also attended the event. I would not say it is a 10/10, but damn, watching new footage from that era in amazing 4K is something that I did not expect at all. I thought it would all be about interviews, but to me it's absolutely worthy. Have in mind this is not a Victory Tour documentary, so no full songs. Not a Beat it one, so no full making off. Not a Thriller (song) one, so no full making off. It is about what Thriller meant, and in my opinion it pretty much covers everything. Of course I would have loved to watch full songs or even the full concert, but again, it is a documentary about Thriller.
but if something is not full IT IS snippets.
As I said, it's not a Victory Tour report. I think that Jamie meant they are not the regular snippets we are used to (from TV reports, usually recorded from the front and that's it). He's right: the quality is beyond this world (4k) and the way it is recorded is something totally new. For instance, the entrance in Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' is recorded from the side, really close to The Jacksons feet. A new approach that looks great. By the way, Lounis mentioned it is LA concert, but I thought it was Kansas because they are just talking about the Kansas one. But Mj is not wearing the black and white trousers. I remember Jermaine wearing a white jacket though (I could only look at Mj lol). They do speak of the LA concert, but because it was a farewell concert. They play the audio where Michael is saying it's his last tour blablabla.
What what !
Isn't Thriller and Beat It music video 4K in 4:3 ?
Exactly: of course we want 16:9, but again, most stuff from that era is 4:3.
I was so fcukn excited until I just read this. You mean to tell me they did all that remastering for 2fckn min??????? JOHN BRANCA CAN GO TO HELL!
Replied before. Not sure though if they only remastered the parts shown in the documentary or the whole concert. Would that make sense? Maybe.
Amazing parts that have not been mentioned before includes Michael waiting outside the bar of Beat it, so you see him looking through the small glass of the door. Also the behind the cameras of the part where he is on his bed.
I missed though they didn't speak about The Lady in my Life (the only song not mentioned, probably along with PYT), that Billie Jean looks unfortunately in 480p and also that it seems either the Grammys didn't grant permission or high quality footage of Michael is not available for all the awards, just some of them.
I know we would have wanted a 10-hour documentary with full stuff in 4K and 16:9, but one thing is for sure: you will be surprised when you watch it. Trust me.
