This Is It Blu-ray Review by Enid Burns
“It's clear from the moment Michael Jackson walks into the frame of Michael Jackson's This is It, the man moved - and lived - for the stage. The second the music starts, MJ's trademark dance moves and theatrics just start to happen, almost without thought. The documentary chronicles rehearsals and planning for the upcoming concert tour, "This is It." While the film highlight MJ's enthusiasm for the stage, it gives the cast of dancers, singers, and musicians - many of whom were unknowns from around the world - an opportunity to show their work that never saw the stage with the music legend.
Michael Jackson's This is It made it to theaters (instead of travelling the world) and became one of the highest-grossing concert documentaries in its limited run in theaters. And its stunning picture and sound make it better suited to Blu-ray than to any other format.” ~~ Enid Burns
This Is It Blu-ray Review by Highdefdiscnews
Overall Verdict: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
"The Hi-Def footage looks amazing (there is some standard definition footage) here with sharp detail, bright vibrant colors, accurate flesh tones and a very solid black level. This Is It earns a perfect "5 Star Rating" for overall video quality.
Overall the presentation here in terms of sound is very impressive and sure to leave fans pleased, earning it a "4.5 Star Rating" for audio quality. Jackson was not singing at his full vocal capacity, a definite shame, but these rehearsals do hold a great amount of emotional significance regardless and most importantly, they sound excellent." ~~ highdefdiscnews

An amazing documentary film, a true tribute to the King of Pop. This film is filled with music and performances but is also filled with moving moments. Michael Jackson fans will love it as a tribute to his singing and dancing; people who are less familiar with him, will get a fine introduction. A totally unusual one-of-a-kind film considered, by many, a masterpiece.
"Sony has rolled out the red carpet for This Is It; the Blu-ray presentation features a true-to-the-many-sources 1080p transfer, a pristine lossless soundtrack, and solid array of extra materials. Highly recommended." ~~ Blu-ray.com

It's a tragedy that the world did not and never will experience Michael Jackson live in this concert.
I grew up listening to Michael Jackson and I really did enjoy most of his music. I can actually remember staying home the night they played the Thriller music video on television for the first time and that must surely be one of his greatest songs. Well, I love Billie Jean, too. MJ had so many fantastic songs!
The night my husband & I enjoyed watching This Is It from the comfort of our home theatre, we were reminded that MJ really was an extremely talented artist. When he passed away in 2009, the world lost a true musical genius. It is sad to think that all that work and preparation was done for a concert that was never and will never be shared with a live audience, as was intended.
At least we will always Michael Jackson's music to remember him by. What about you? Did you enjoy his music?
