My daughter has become obsessed with Michael Jackson as of late, and insisted on buying the DVD this weekend. She watched it all.weekend.long.

Anyone else see it? What were your thoughts on it or Michael Jackson himself? Talent / no talent?

(Please no talk of what he was allegedly accused of)

I have never been a Michael Jackson fan.
I do enjoy singing and dancing to a few of his songs (like Thriller and Beat It.)
I LOVE playing Beat it on guitar hero smile.gif

I think Michael Jackson had talent in his own way. smile.gif Obviously people liked him, and he was loved by many before (and after) his death.

I wasn't a huge fan back in the day but lets face it, he was one of the biggest pop musical stars ever.

There's no question that Michael Jackson was very talented. I didn't even think people were questioning that. Although he had some issues, he was a great talent.

Used to worship him back in the day.But I think his talent went down hill along with his health and his common sense.But that thriller video was the scariest, coolest thing when it first came out way back in the 80's.I had nightmares due to that video as a young boy.

Michael was a one of a kind talent...the originality of his dance moves and the ideas presented in his 80's Videos - Thriller etc. were unique and far ahead of thier time.

Like most talents....their light glows only for a limited time.

With the recently signed $200M deal for unreleased works of his, we will be hearing new material from Michael's grave for many years to come.

Very talented, though I wouldn't call myself a big fan; my interest starts at "Billie Jean" and ends at "Bad", with "Thriller" as its apex.

You do not know me, but I am a juvenile delinquent. I do not trust authority figures, I probably will not graduate from high school, and statistics say my present rowdiness and vandalism will likely lead to more serious crimes. I am a dangerous fellow, and I am causing mayhem in this store. *pulls three jars of baby food from the top shelf, shoves them behind a box of macaroni, shuffles the Cheez Whiz in front of the Marshmallow Fluff, and tosses a bag of lady's shavers onto a bag of hamburger buns* There. I have now shamelessly destroyed the symmetry of this shelf, undoing hours of labor by underpaid store employees. If you could see me, you would be frightened.

Talented was the King of Pop and there will never be another!

Took his death as a joke at first and then when it sank in...Not ashamed to admit i cried and cried! His music was like Magical to me when i was a young kid! Still brings tears to my eyes when i think about it.

As far as the movie..I have it downloaded to my PC but have not been able to pull myself to watch it yet!

I definitely agree he was very talented and the King Of Pop. There will be no other. It angers me to see that some even compare some lame artists of today to MJ( ......that Beiber kid). That's very disrespectful to the one and only King of Pop.

RIP MJ sad.gif

I'm a pretty big Michael Jackson fan myself. I love his music and have great respect for his art. He was a genius in writing, creating, and interpreting music as well as dancing. Yes he was weird, I think everyone knows that but he did do a lot of good by donating to charities and helping people. This Is It was a really good movie, I enjoyed seeing Michael preparing for those concerts! My family had tickets to see him in London and we still get mad that we never made it to see him at the 02.

Michael had an indefinable magic that made you want to watch him over and over. I had a copy
of the Thriller tape and watched it countless times but I wasn't the only one that was mesmerized
by his tallent. I remember that on the Thriller tape they showed a clip of Michael singing and
dancing to Billie Jean on stage at a televised event that I believe was the Black Entertainment
Awards. Fred Astaire, a dancing legend in his own right, watched the program that night and
when interviewed later said that he was glad he had recorded the program because Michael's
performance that night had fascinated him and he had watched it over and over.
I have seen "This Is It" and enjoyed it very much. Very interesting how he was on top of every
little detail concerning his music, as he should have been....it was his name at stake but also
he took obvious pride in all of his productions. I'm glad that he passed through our world...
he brought a lot of happiness to a lot of folks, me included.

A Genius thinks 'out of the box' and advances mankind and themselves because of it.

The Insane think 'out of their head' and bring makind and themselves down because of it.

There is a very, very fine line that separates the Genius from Insanity - and sometimes individuals dance along that line with steps on either side.

As MJ aged he was putting more and more steps on the Insane side of the line.

Not necessarily.....particularly the "advancing mankind" part.

Mankind has not advanced on the ability of idiots. Genius may not be able to comprehend the work-a-day world and the common and ordinary....but they come up with the original thoughts and actions that move and shake the world. Gallileo, Einstein, Pastuer, Edison....the list goes on and on and on and on.

Did MJ have the abstract intellect of those I have named - no way - but his intellect and performance abilities in his area of interest provided the most original entertainment of the 80's - what he did was not a copy of what anyone else had done, and many then copied what MJ had pioneered.
