  • Bad 25

    Bad 25 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Feb, 2016

    At 2 hours & 11 minutes there's a decent portion of fat that can be trimmed off here, but overall it's a comprehensive view on Jackson's whole career during the Bad era, from songs to videos to touring (jeez Sheryl Crow's hair is ridic).
