Jesus Christ Superstar [DVD] [2000]

  • SKU: 4108520
  • Release Date: 03/20/2001
  • Rating: NR
This DVD is the first of two editions, the second issued in 2001. This single-layer, widescreen letterbox (2.35:1) version has these audio options: English (Dolby Digital 5.0 Surround) and French (Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround), with subtitles in Spanish and English (captions). The picture is nonanamorphic, and it shows in the obvious digitalization and in the occasional blurs and motion artifacts throughout the film. The audio has been remastered but is lean on the bass, and jarring and more monaural-sounding than stereo. Special features on this edition include production notes, cast and filmmaker bios and filmographies, highlights from the film, and the theatrical trailer. A small glossy booklet inside the plastic case depicts two scenes and offers a chapter index.

    Synopsis


    Jesus Christ Superstar
    Jesus Christ Superstar was Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's first international success, first as a top-selling concept album and then as a hit stage production. In 1996, a successful new production of the show was staged in London, and this home video release preserves this bold new adaptation of the show. In Jesus Christ Superstar, the story of Jesus (played by Glenn Carter) is retold in a modern setting from the perspective of Judas (Jerome Pradon), Christ's friend and disciple who becomes disillusioned and turns against Jesus when he becomes close friends with Mary Madgaline (Renee Castle), a prostitute. This television version was directed by Nick Morris and Gale Edwards in 2000. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I NEVER get tired of Jesus Christ Superstar - EVER! I will continue to purchase versions of this musical if they keep putting them out. I am aware of 3 versions out on bluray now - the '73 version w/ Ted Neeley (which I'd rank #2), the 'arena tour' version that came out in '14 (which I'd rank #1), and this version. While there really is nothing wrong with this version at all, it's just not my favorite version out there. All the actors are very strong and are vocally adept (I will admit that Pontius Pilate is a bit over-the-top). In my book, you just can't go wrong with ANY version of Jesus Christ Superstar.

      I believe this is a ground-breaking musical that has been unheralded for years. The music is well-written, the cast is outstanding, and the emotions evoked are incredible. As a Christian, I have also showed this to youth group and the results were the same. Praise all for this wonderful DVD. Get it. Share it. Understand what it represents.

      Please watch the one made in the early 70's with Carl Anderson as Judas and the one a only Ted Neeley. If you do this, it will explain all you need to know. This version lack the raw passion & guts. Sometimes you need to just leave well enough, ALONE!

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
