Michael Jackson's This Is It

 (2009)

Michael Jackson's This Is It Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A rare glimpse into the final days of Michael Jackson, the documentary is compiled from an estimated 80 hours of rehearsal and behind-the-scenes footage of the legendary entertainer preparing for his 50 sold-out shows at London's O2 Arena that were scheduled to commence in July 2009 before his untimely death in June at age 50. Interviews with collaborators and close friends of the late performer are also featured.

For more about Michael Jackson's This Is It and the Michael Jackson's This Is It Blu-ray release, see Michael Jackson's This Is It Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Michael Jackson's This Is It Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Michael Jackson's This is It features a 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer that's a mixture of high definition and standard definition video footage, but the end result is nevertheless an overall strong visual presentation when taken in the proper context and allowing for the flaws inherent to the source. As one might expect, the high definition material proves the visual star of the show and, generally, looks exceptional. It's rather crisp, clean, and nicely detailed; viewers will note every stubble of facial hair on Michael's face in one scene; beads of sweat and tears of joy on dancers' faces; scuffs on floors; or stitches, beads, and other adornments on clothing. Colors are fairly rendered, whether the frame be awash in multicolored mood and accent lighting or showcasing Michael's bright red pants seen here and there throughout the film, This is It's color palette shines brightly even though the film often takes on something of a slightly dark tone. Indeed, much of the film features dark or hazy backgrounds, but the transfer resolves them with ease, never delivering anything but pristine blacks and the image pleasantly free of excessive banding or other problematic anomalies. The film is intercut with standard definition material, and while it proves a drastic downgrade in quality, the strength of the film often allows for viewers to overlook the sudden shift and accept the lesser material in favor of the strong thematic and visual presentation and consistently exceptional soundtrack. Still, such scenes appear with jagged edges, aliasing, cross coloration, reduced sharpness, and the like. It's clearly inferior, but it's also unfair to criticize it for being what it is and with no room for improvement. All told, This is It looks excellent on Blu-ray, the high definition material in particular a pleasant surprise and translating exceptionally well to Blu-ray.


Michael Jackson's This Is It Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Michael Jackson's This is It features a mesmerizing DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Nothing but the best would do, and Sony's latest lossless endeavor ranks among the best the format has to offer. For as good as the film looks, this soundtrack tops it, and from the opening beats onward, it dazzles with every musical number but also solidifies itself as an exceptional track even in quieter scenes with a more nuanced audio presentation. The beats of the uptempo songs penetrate the listening area with tremendous clarity; repeatedly thumping bass as heard during "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" pleasantly but powerfully pulsate into and throughout the soundstage. Additionally, everything from the percussion drums to the pyrotechnic explosions are handled marvelously by the DTS mix as every beat, syllable, and sound effect are delivered with pinpoint accuracy. Every note, from the highest trumpet rhythms to the heaviest guitar riffs, is richly recreated, and the spread of sound and style -- whether the pulsating rhythms of "Beat It" or the more soothing and relaxed tone of "Human Nature" -- never poses a challenge to the disc's amazing clarity at every turn. Additionally, dialogue is wonderfully executed, and voices finely reverberate through the cavernous rehearsal areas in several scenes. The track is simply electric, and Michael Jackson fans in particular are destined to adore this track for what is one of the quintessential sonic presentations of the King of Pop's top songs. Like some films are best experienced on large screens, This is It demands a spacious, powerful sound presentation; built-in television speakers just won't do this one justice.
