Worth the Price of Admission - This Is It
Nobody was more surprised than I was when I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I had avoided it for a couple of reasons. I don't consider myself a Michael Jackson fan not that I didn't enjoy dancing the night away to his music in my younger days. I was fearful of what a tribute movie might mean. While I am saddened by the loss of a favorite celebrity and I feel for their families and friends, most often I wish we'd simply let people rest in peace once they've past. This movie celebrates his art and craft and takes even casual fans on a delightful walk down memory lane. Thanks to those who persuaded me to go; I'm glad I didn't miss it.
