Anyone else import this movie from the UK? I finally got my copy in the mail today and it feels great to finally own it again (I used to have the VHS when I was a kid but lost it long ago). It looks pretty good, seeing the video clips at the begining of the movie make me long for a video collection in HD. I kind of expected Speed Demon to look better, but I had to remember that it's an old Claymation film and not CG. Anyway forget "This is It"... THIS is the MJ movie I love!

And yes, the disc is region free. Can't really comment on the audio because I haven't had a chance to listen to it on my main set-up.

I imported this movie from the UK a couple of weeks ago, & I have to say this release rocks! The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is phenomenal, & the PQ is top notch. Well worth the 22 bucks I spent on it!

The scene where the bad guy Joe Pesci tries to inject the girl with some drug is completely removed.


This scene is intact on UK dvd released years ago.

While this looks nice and filmic (with the usual Warnerisation, natch) I didn't think much of the sound. It's clean but sorely lacking in dynamics. Still, it's great to have this bizarre flick in HD, even if it is cut slightly.

I picked this up on eBay watched it and sold it back on eBay. I like Mike but this is a case of over indulgence and a waste of talent. Very boring.

So the sound is less-the-stelar, eh?

The choreography for Smooth Criminal is the best choreography in any video, ever.

As an adult, you just may not understand this movie at all, and that's fine. However, as a kid growing up in the 80s that use to love Michael Jackson while having a huge imagination, I wouldn't mind owning this in HD. I watched it about a year ago on an XBMC streaming app, and I was pleasantly entertained while strolling back into nostalgia territory.
