I'll open this section of This is It with things that we all have noticed for sure.. that will be a good beggining for a discussion
The very first thing that put a big "?" over my head was "Michael Jackson's This is it", moonwalker and ghost came up to my mind .. the posters are writting in the exact same way, and TII is not supposed to be made by Michael because when the movie was created he was already gone... or better.. "gone".
When I first saw TII I was so excited about what I was about to find that maybe I didn't pay the attention I should, my nerves where controlling me I must say
But I notice a couple of things that some days after where confirmed when I see it again. As we all know there are different version of TII, or at least some of us believe we have seen things that others didnt.
The first thing that caugh my atention was KO saying "the dancer are an extension of Michael Jackson, they are an extension of the myth" O.O I asked to the people that was with me that day and they heard the same, and even the spanish subtitles said "mito".. then I convinced myself that it was a type mistake of the translator (even when i bet my head that I heard myth).. the movie continued, i was asking to myself why I wasn't seeing the dances tha MJ used to do.. but I keep watching of course.
Probably the most interesting part was the final one..on the credits. MJ appears as the producer of the concert and it wasn't odd at all because he might have produce the reharseals for the future concert, Ko as the producer of the film. so far so good, but then I read "Michael Jackson wants to thanks to..." I don't remember the rest.. but it was something as he wants to thanks to all the people that have been working with him or something like that... What? wants to thank? how can he be thankful if he is supposedly dead? is a mistake?.. if it is.. is a big one!.
then, the Bam!.. it was so.. unnecessary to put it there, at the end... or it wasn't? it was there on purpose for only some people to see it, the ones that will wait until the very end of the movie to satnd up and leave?.. then the girl with the world with his signature on the bottom with a message. It was too strange for me.. but of course I was already a believer and I was happy to see all of that.
When I went for the second time I notice the same as the first one, Myth, the thanks, the bam, his signature... all confirmed. some days later my cousin bough the cd, and the producer was MJ.. and then again.. what? how can he be producing something when he is dead? isn't the producer in charge of being until the very end of the arragements for the cd? did he made it some time before Jun 25? and if its so.. then why we never see an interview or someone saying that Michael ended a record of.. a future movie? :S LOL, they lost me there. Of course the message in the TII CD back cover saying "always great to sing with my brother" - wich one? why only 1 brother? aaaand the new slogan of sony, changed on september "make.believe"
As a believer, TII was a great thing to happen, the movie and the cd.. not only one thing that mentioned him as if he had passed away.. not one!
There are a lot of things to keep talking but this post is long enough to make someone get bored
hope you are not that one
Love u all!
