I just watched the Michael Jackson; This is It blu ray. Let me start by saying, even if you are not the biggest fan, which I am not, this is one for the books.
Aside from the picture quality, which is mostly amazing, it does have a few SD looking moments. This would be because the shots you see are SD. The filming that was happening throughout this movie were never meant for this application.
What makes this really great to watch, is you can first see how MJ is a control freak, but more than that, it illustrates why he was the best entertainer out there. You can watch the progression in his voice, some songs are very bad sounding, with parts the just sing classic MJ. As you sit and watch, he starts getting stronger and stronger, and you say, wow. You can also note the progression of the rehearsals because some songs have just basic house lighting, while others engage the full light show, effects, etc.
They also show some of the background filming, 3D filming etc that they were doing for the show. They had some firsts planned for this show. Apparently they had the largest ever LED display, and was the first time 3D could ever be used in a concert performance. On my kuro, some of this stuff looked so real, my wife commented on it. She never wants to comment on how good or real something looks!
The special features are also very enjoyable. I have not finished all of them, but they dive deeper into what was planned. The exit for MJ will blow you away. When you watch the special features, you get to see what was planned for his "Big Exit". I was floored. I won't mention it here, as it would be a spoiler.
So, if you want two hours of enjoyment, you will get it with this movie. You may also gain an additional respect for MJ, as I did. While we all know he needed money, after seeing what this concert would have been, I was thrown aback. I would have went to see this concert.
Last, in most movies, you would never really mention this, but, this may very well be the last great thing ever produced by or about MJ. It is worth every penny.
