Depending on which portion of the King of Pops legacy you gobble up, you might have conflicting feelings about his death. Celebrate the amazing song that is Billie Jean, or rejoice in the demise of someone who might have been trying to get into little Billys jeans. Whichever way your moral compass sways, the heavily hyped and highly anticipated film This Is It will show you what MJ was doing in the months leading up to his untimely death this past June 25. You wont see any baby-dangling, monkey-canoodling, or other tabloid-worthy crap, but 80-plus hours of rehearsal footage that has been compressed into a package giving you a sneak peek at what his 50-show London production would have been like had his physician been more Dr. Feelgood and less Dr. Death.
