Not enough in several fields

There is not a great deal to explain about what "Michael Jackson Feat. Janet Jackson: Scream" is about as the title summarizes it very well. In this music video from over 20 years ago, we have Michael Jackson (in his 30s) and his younger sister Janet (in her late 20s) sing and dance aboard something like a space ship or space station. The running time is under five minutes, so one of MJ's shorter works for sure. Looking at the awards recognition, this is perhaps the most successful video work by writer and director Mark Romanek, a highly prolific music video director back then. And while I quite love his full feature film works, especially NLMG, I am not really sold on his music video stuff, at least not judging from this one here. It's impressive how much the duo in here looks alike, almost like twins. The black-and-white idea was solid and it is a good work visually I would say, but also not good enough to justify all this awards attention. The song felt extremely forgettable to me and the story (or lack thereof) wasn't helping matters either. As a whole, this was mostly forgettable. I give it a thumbs-down.
