Ok, now I realize everybody on the planet thinks that Michael Jackson is a freak and a pervert, but this was made back in 1988 when he was the coolest thing ever, before his face fell off and his music sucked. So anyway, I’m sure people have seen or at least heard of this short film (I’m not just talking about the abbreviated music video “Smooth Criminal” shown on MTV back in the day).
It was only ever released on VHS, the whole mini movie with Michael fighting Joe Pesci as “Mr. Big” and the soldiers with the machinegun flashlights and robot special effects, etc. plus all the accompanying videos with the claymation rabbit and little kids doing a parody of “Bad” etc. But I see that there people selling a bootleg DVD entitled “Moonwalker: A Movie Like No Other” with new cover artwork. One seller claimed it was an “unofficial UK DVD that is discontinued.” I’ve never seen the DVD but I am assuming it’s pure bootleg.
So because I have fond childhood memories of watching this movie (I own the VHS) and playing the video game version on my Sega Genesis, and because I’d like to see the wind taken out of the sails of the people selling the bootleg, how about it? Anybody up to releasing it on here or creating a new version?
Just thought I’d throw that one out there, or if anyone has any info on an existing release doing the rounds, let me know!
