I’ve zero interest in watching Cats, but those reviews are tempting me. :lol:

I think I want to watch Cats more than Star Wars.

The Evening Standard say it's basically as obscene as The Human Centipede.
Let's go Mori!

It was directed by a guy who told the actors to get into character by crawling around on all fours and sniffing each other. I think this is a personal fetish project which was given a studio budget.

I get a feeling though that Cats will be more liked than disliked by most of the people who go and see it.

So it's a film that's based loosely around predators stalking children? :lol:

Birds of Prey has been rated R in USA. A good sign and probably due to Joker success.

I'm so pumped for Tenet

It's been a bit of a hit and miss decade for Nolan for me. Inception is absolutely top tier, loved everything about it but The Dark Knight Rises was a very disappointing finale to what could have been one of the all time best trilogies in cinema. Interstellar was good in many ways but flawed and I found Dunkirk to ultimately be very dull. But this is absolutely the type of film I want Nolan to be making. The concept looks intriguing and like always, it just looks so good.

Trailer for that on new year's Day. Same director and cast so it'll be great.

A Quiet Place was an above average movie that got hyped to hell and absolutely did not need a sequel

Boston Globe

My eyes are burning. Oh God, my eyes.


Collider
Can you make a movie so bad that the Academy takes back your Best Director Oscar? Asking for Tom Hooper.


The Beat
Cats is the worst thing to happen to cats since dogs.


Hollywood Reporter
Cat-astrophic.


LA Times
"Cats” is both a horror and an endurance test.


Slashfilm
There is a thin line between idiocy and genius, and Cats pukes a hairball on it and rubs its ass all over it.


Variety
Nine may not be enough lives for some of the stars to live down their involvement in this poorly conceived and executed adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical.


Little White Lies
I felt the light inside me slowly fading.


The Playlist
Once Tom Hooper's 110 minutes of Cats are over, theater is dead. And we unchosen ones are left, tragically, to continue living.


New York Times
It's amazing to see what Adult Swim can accomplish with a $100 million budget. I never knew Tom Hooper was capable of making a surrealist nightmare that would rival Jodorowsky, that could baffle David Lynch, that would prompt even the dark god Cthulhu to emit an impressed eldritch shriek of “nehehehehehe”


Vulture
To assess Cats as good or bad feels like the entirely wrong axis on which to see it. It is, with all affection, a monstrosity.


The Daily Telegraph
Glad to report that Cats is everything you’d hoped for and more: a mesmerisingly ugly fiasco that makes you feel like your brain is being eaten by a parasite. A viewing experience so stressful that it honestly brought on a migraine.


Den of Geek
One of the weirdest and most garish monstrosities to be birthed out of the Hollywood studio system in this century.


Vanity Fair
It’s an ugly stray who smells bad and should not be invited into your home, certainly. And yet it is its own kind of living creature, worthy of at least some basic compassion.


The Guardian
A purr-fectly dreadful hairball of woe. 1/5.


Indiewire
Tom Hooper’s feline musical is an absurd and exuberant mess. This visually dense adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit is at once too crazy for this world, and not quite crazy enough.


Newsday
Fans of the stage musical may swoon, but others will be severely allergic.


The Wrap
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s feline fantasy musical becomes a garish hairball. It’s hard to “ruin” Webber’s already strange musical, but Tom Hooper’s wrongheaded attempt certainly tries. Tom Hooper’s jarring fever dream of a spectacle is like something that escaped from Dr. Moreau’s creature laboratory instead of a poet’s and a composer’s feline (uni)verse, an un-catty valley hybrid of physical and digital that unsettles and crashes way more often than it enchants.


Bleeding Cool
Cats is a strange beast to begin with, but the combination of strange CGI makes the translation from stage to screen even worse.


Slant
This adaptation gets straight to the heart of the material, which is basically two hours of stray cats introducing themselves.


Rendy Reviews
On a scale of one to Zemeckis, Hooper's Cats boldly goes beyond the uncanny valley and creates a tier of its own.


Screen Junkies
A spectacular disaster...This movie feels like a prank but I don't know on whom.


The Jam Report
The most inexplicably bizarre film of the year, it's jawdropping for all the wrong reasons.


RTE Ireland
First off, full disclosure - I am not a cat person. Second off - after watching this frankly mortifying film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, I'm not altogether sure I am a movie person anymore either.


It'll still be far better than Suicide Squad.

Agreed. It was an above average movie that had a central concept that made watching it in the cinema a brilliant, absorbing experience which drove the hype. The story doesn't really have anywhere it needs go now though and the impact of there being little to no sound will have less impact in the sequel.

It made a decent profit off a small budget though so a sequel isn't much risk for the studio.
