So, tonight I’m going to screen the much-hyped “This Is It.” No, sadly, not the great classic pop song by Kenny Loggins with back-up vocals by the man with the sexiest male singing voice in contemporary music (Michael McDonald). It’s the Michael Jackson movie that looks like it could be “This Is Sh**.” I’ll find out, tonight, and try to post my review by Midnight, when the embargo lifts.
There’s way too much hype over this. We have to be there by a half hour before the movie starts. It’s like being forced to wait in line for Michael Jackson concert tickets, even though the dude is dead. And, as we all know, if he were alive, there would be no line, and few would care. We’ll see if it’s worth it, but in my experience, no movie is, especially a Michael Jackson movie. Again, stay tuned for my review late tonight. Boy, those adopted Jackson kids are gonna make some coin on this. My fave part of this whole thing is scammer dad Joe Jackson alleging that there’s a double instead of Michael Jackson in the movie . . . an attempt to shake down the estate to keep him quiet.
I can’t wait until, “This Is It, Freddy v. Jason v. Joe Jackson and Germaine, XCVII.”
Not This . . .
But This . . .
