That Was It?


Just came back from the movie. Throughout the entire show, I was saying to myself – That was it?  If you’re seen a MJ concert before – in person or in video, you’ve seen it all. This is basically concert rehearsal footages “conveniently” shot in HD and covers every song. Call me silly, but I’m still saying MJ is alive and kicking somewhere sipping Margaritas laughing his ass off to the bank. It’s the perfect retirement promo in the history of mankind. Fake your death, people go crazy, CD sales hit the roof, release a movie, release the Blu-ray, you’ll have yourself a big bang farewell concert that will reach a worldwide audience a concert could only dream of.


Back to the show, how was it? The stage was nothing we’ve not seen before. The video wall, graphics and animations look dated, and the outfits – whoever designed them, should be shot in close range. The only outfit he looked good in was the gray suit with a red shirt in the photo above. All the rest, looked like it was stolen from the wardrobe of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.


To the fans, it does not matter. And boy, there were many of them in the cinema hall. They even applauded when the credit started rolling. Sure, there were moments – the part when Billie Jean came on and the THX sound system kicks in – it was a MJ moment to remember. But …. that was it.
