Really? I was under the impression that Christians of all salience lined up at Andrew Lloyd Webber's malachite mansion and blew his towel boys for him.
Maybe at the time of its release it made waves but now it's considered hip Christian agitprop by the fundies or something.
Toenails - 2009-04-18 I believe what he means is the outcry over the musical's focus on the chemistry between Jesus and Mary Mag, and also the way it portrays Judas as a flawed but redeemable betrayer.
And making the Apostles as a idiotic hive-collective probably does not endear this play to the modern followers of J.C.
Screwtape - 2009-04-18 It also depicts Judas as ascending into heaven, makes Jesus's divinity ambiguous by omitting any reference to his resurrection, and has some nice hippie boobs.
Chibisuke - 2009-04-18 Hulu has way too many fucking ads. I can't even skip around the video to search for good parts without triggering ads every few seconds.
Toenails - 2009-04-18 Those were ads? I thought I was watching a movie about Anthony Edwards pissing in an ocean.
Five stars for the best damned musical about the life and times of Jesus. Fuck you, Godspell.
Vicious - 2011-04-14 "Best musical about Jesus" is a category with zero good entrants.
Bort - 2009-04-18 I miss Colin Dos. (I bring this up because JCS was his krytponite.)
Babies Ate My Dingo - 2009-04-18 Five stars for the musical. An angrily raised middle finger for Hulu, which doesn't believe in Canada.
Michael Houser - 2009-04-18 I love this movie/musical. Finally Judas gets his day in court. By the end I'm like, FUCK Jesus! Worst singer of the bunch!
Also, wasn't one of the scandals that there was a male porn-star in the cast? Which one??? Where???
And Mary Magdelene is hot.
Rosebeekee - 2009-04-18 Peter (played by Philip Toubus) is the one who started doing porn the year after this movie was released.
I took Catechism classes when I was 11 and I asked if we could watch this, but one of the more crazier teachers wouldn't allow it. He did say "I guess we could watch it just to see how bad Hollywood is." Because if there was ever a template for big, Hollywood movies this film with a no name cast and fuck all for a budget would be it.
Vicious - 2011-04-14 I had to watch this fucking thing like three times in Catholic school and I HAAAAAAATE it.
