Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

I keep seeing all these stories about how many advance tickets this shameless cash in -- sorry, loving tribute -- is raking in.

Bigger than 'Spider-Man'?

I just wonder if there really are that many MJ fans willing to shell out to see this or if it's a lot of hype over nuttin'. What say you?

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

why would it be called "is this it"? I mean, seriously. That's like questioning if Michael will be making a come back.

Ok, now I sort of want to call it "is this it?"

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

I bet that This is mostly rehearsal footage without the musical numbers being complete. I would guess that they would release another film with the complete concert rehearsal footage they shot ( remember they shot the full length concert rehersals in whole just without people in the arena )

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

It's not that I don't care about MJ.
but I don't much care for the idea of this movie.

If anything, the Lebron James movie I find more intriguing?

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

Mmm, maybe for some reason I was thinking of The Strokes instead. Are they dead?

I think the general response after seeing it will be: "Is that all there is?"

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

I'll probably end up seeing it when it hits DVD.

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

I might watch this once it hits DVD, but I really have VERY little interest.

I would be more interested in seeing the Kenny Loggins version.

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

I'd rather have "Moonwalker" on DVD.

He-heee

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

There's a debate here in the office that it will make money, I am the minority that bets it won't be what they're expecting. Especially considering how much we paid out to AEG and Paul Anka.

Re: Michael Jackson's "Is This It": Do you care?

DVD release, sure. Make for an interesting program to watch at home but it would be strange seeing this kind of posthumous documentary in a theatre. These things just play better on TV.

I'd say I couldn't possibly care any less about this, but I apparently cared enough to vote. And post. Ugh.

This Is It isn't going to be IMAX, unless it's digital only.
