It's hard not to watch This Is It without feeling a mixture of sorrow and elation. When he passed away in the summer of 2009, Michael Jackson was in the midst of rehearsals for his final tour, an ambitious 50-date engagement. In editing 120 hours of rehearsal footage together, Jackson producer Kenny Ortega proves that it would've been an event for the ages. Michael performs material that spans his career, from a Motown medley to multi-platinum hits from Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad.

      When I wanted to play video games in the '80s, I coded them myself from a book and then saved the game on a video cassette that I would then hook up to my computer that would be hooked up to my gigantic 13" TV. Ah, those were the days.
