Staggering advance sales were reported in Australia, where tickets for Michael Jackson's This Is It purchased through Village Cinemas exceeded the lifetime pre-sales of such blockbusters as Transformers and X-Men Origins. "

I have issue regarding this post. it's true we're celebrity obsessed but I don't like how he used the context in his post. because watching this film ain't a sign of 'obsession' coz' for one I want to see a genius at work. I'm intrigued to see 'what could have been', For one & I'm absolutely certain of this, when Michael Jackson says he's gonna put on the greatest performance of all performance that will be sealed and done! sadly it's not happening however Michael Jackson already fulfilled & delivered his "I'm gonna blow their mind"--The Trailer! a mere tariler! already blew my mind got my jaw dropped to the floor! I've been saying this, I'm gonna say this again "THIS IS IT" WAS BOUND TO BLOW EVERYONE'S FUCKING MIND OFF!!

btw, I'm going to disagree on #3 spot! but won't say much we still got a month to find out.

Haters ya'll could talk,

what's the point of arguing
if ya'll don't even know
the difference between
