Michael Jackson – Monday Mosaic

This evening I saw “This is It”the  documentary of the last rehearsals with Michael Jackson. From what I am reading the movie has mixed reviews.

For me it was an emotional 2 hours. Not because I was one of his biggest fans but because  my young family grew with the help of Michael’s fun and without question talented “album” Thriller.  My boys (then 8 and 5) sang and danced right along with him.  I recall my mini-van rocking down the road singing at the top of our lungs to BAD.

Years ago I  spent hours upon hours rehearsing doing community theatre, (lol yes I was Mrs. Darling in Peter Pan – *curtsy*) and that being said, I know the hard work and fun that comes with putting together a show. So, for me the “journey” of this event was very entertaining.  The emotion the cast felt after being hand selected was heart warming.  Not only were they working with someone they felt they had grown up with, but they obviously adored him.

Dancing step by step, some times out performing dancers half his age, Michael may have appeared very thin, he certainly didn’t lack energy and his voice, while subdued at times was spot on pitch.

This young guitarist was awesome! She was brilliantly talented and Michael worked with her saying “this is your moment to shine!”

Some my favorites were of course the newer digitally enhanced Thriller performance and Smooth Criminal. I still love Billy Jean, Bad, Man behind the Mirror and Heal the World. His moon walk didn’t skip a beat.

This movie doesn’t try to explain anything other than give a glimps of behind the scenes and performance of a very talented man.

It’s something I would strongly recommend- I really enjoyed his music; and my revisiting in my mind with my precious young children was a nice visit.

Today’s Monday – run on over to visit with Mary at Little Red House and the other Mosaic-makers.

    Thanks for your review of this movie Claudia.  I felt sad when Michael Jackson died…not only to lose his artistic talent, but also for all the dancers and musicians who would be getting their big break by performing with him while he was on his new tour.  I’m happy they are still having a chance to be seen in this documentary.

    Happy Mosaic Monday!

    Hugs,  Pat
