    I watched this to see what all the hype was about. Even though the movie is exactly 40 years old this year, I still enjoyed the music. I really liked this movie, even though musical's aren't my thing! 7 years 2 months ago

    Jesus Christ Superstar takes Judas' side, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I know it's a weird thing to say, but I frankly feel the Gospels are consistently misread on his account. And yet, the subversive rock opera also shows us a man who ultimately lacked faith, a pragmatist who didn't believe enough in the cause to carry it to term, his betrayal one of love, but also of fear. Carl Anderson makes him more engaging than Ted Neeley's inscrutable Jesus, though the Christ becomes more interesting once you realize he's filled with doubt himself. We know the story by heart, so it totally makes sense for there to be no spoken dialog, only songs, and memorable ones too (the music is in fact recognizably influential to one of my favorite scores of all time, Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica), somewhere between 70s funk and pop gospel. 2 years 9 months ago
