Review: Michael Jackson – Thats It @ IMAX


Now this was a little different that what you usually expect to see in the movie theaters, and I’m surprised they even brought it to Kuwait. There are a lot of people who grew up listening to Michael Jackson over the years, and I consider myself to be a fan so when I heard about this movie I had to see it. My friend calls me up to see the movie in the new IMAX theater in 360 which was pretty impressive, comfortable seating, huge screen and excellent sound. This movie isn’t a normal movie, it’s a sort of behind the scenes to how Michael Jackson is during his performances, I always beleived he was an artist, but after this movie he is a true artist. They went through the whole process of making this tour, from the musical numbers, practice, to picking the singers and dancers, the wardrobe, how MJ is throughout the whole process. You know its good when half the people in the audience are either singing or dancing in their seats, I couldn’t help it, he is seriously amazing and you feel like the crowd at certain moments. They went through all his amazing songs over the years, great music, choreography, and everything put together. It just gets a little boring towards the end, you feel like it was just chopped up and put together but overall I really enjoyed it, and if you are MJ fan then you should see it.

    The new IMAX in 360 does not have great sound, it is even worse than other Movie theaters. It does not even have 6.1 system, it has only two big surround speakers, no array of surround speakers. The thing that impressed me is that it is equipped with a digital DMD (with DLP) projector, no optical films any more.
    I remember 10 years ago I was reading about new cinemas will be digital based, not optical film based using ether a media drive or direct satellite downstream.

    From my experience, the Best Cinema in Kuwait (talking about Sound only) is Sharq (2). I will try to see the movie in both theaters to hear the difference.

    seems that I’m going to change my mind and go see it here! It’s one of two shows that are continuously playing in the single theater we have.
