Michael Jackson's "This is It"

OK, I went to see it. Brian laughed at me. But I was (still am) a total 80's girl. I bought the Thriller album the summer I turned 16. I remember playing it over and over that summer at my dad's house.

Anyway, I thought the documentary was well done. In some of the footage he forgot words and didn't sing as well. But at other times when he was giving direction to the band, his talent was amazing.

I just keep thinking, "how sad to be so talented and yet so screwed up."

It's too bad he never got to perform it. The production looked like it would have been a great show.
