Watched Jesus Christ superstar
Yep, you read that right. I made the mistake of saying I had never seen it to my friend.

It's so very obvious why I wasn't allowed to watch it during my childhood. It just makes it so much more ridiculous.

As I answer his questions about "is this what he bible actually says?" And most answers are a version of yes. I can't help but think what the heck.

Thankfully, my friend who does love this musical also finds religion to be a bit wonkadoo.

Anyone else saw one of these lovely movies years later and it just go... What the what?!?

Not only watched it, owned, and knew every word to the soundtrack album.

I'm a bit of a Andrew Lloyd Webber fan so have to admit that I seen it many times and have had the soundtrack.

Now that you bring it up, I saw it as a child and never 'got it', I'll have to watch it again

I fucking love Jesus Christ Superstar!

I know all the lyrics - even the stage show songs, which have even more songs than the movie - I own the sound track to the movie and the original Broadway cast album.

The movie was perfect - nearly each song was catchy or memorable.
Wasn't Herod a hoot?! - Josh Mostel just ate the scenery. Shy

Godspell - meh - songs were hit and miss - downer of an ending. But John the baptist was groovy and hot and that's all that matters! Thumbsup


btw - I'm not a former anything but a life long atheist. Shy

Absolutely love Jesus Christ - Superstar.

All your followers are blind.
Too much heaven on their minds.
It was beautiful, but now it's sour.
Yes it's all gone sour.

Catchy tunes. Lousy plot.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
