This afternoon I got myself to a matinee of Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It ‘ movie. I was surprised to see twenty some people at a Friday matinee. I quickly forgot about anybody else in the theater as I was pulled into the music, the movement, the magic of Michael Jackson. There were a few times I was surprised by tears rolling down my cheeks.

I loved it. This is the kind of movie best seen in a theater. It needs to be big and loud. I was surprised to see how often Michael Jackson smiled. The movie was a well paced balance of behind the scenes moments and dance/music footage. I loved it. I didn’t want it to end.
