Cats - HOW IS THERE NOT A THREAD ABOUT CATS?!
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:41:01 PM »
Seen it twice now, it's one of the most engaging yet absolutely cuckoo bananas things I've ever seen, it's like they hired the perfect director, cast, dancers, etc and then gave the post-production to Tim & Eric or something. 

More people need to see Cats so I can talk to people about Cats

LOL when I saw the title of the thread I thought you were just talking about cats in general.

So did I. Hey it's the Internet. The half that isn't porn is cat videos.

Actually though, I did see this, just out of curiosity. And because I'm a fan of the stage version. Like I said in the "What was the last movie you watched" thread, I would recommend people see it, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend paying money to see it.

I found it interesting that they made Victoria the de facto main character. In the stage version, Victoria doesn't even have lines. It does make sense though. She's the only one with a "normal" name, so you could make the case that she's an outsider, and therefore you have an excuse to introduce all these other "Jellicle" cats to her.

It is a shame they had to cut out Growltiger's Last Stand and The Awful Battle of the Pekes and the Pollicles. In a show with virtually no plot, these song have nothing to do with anything even by Cats standards. Makes sense to cut them, but they're also the two most entertaining parts of the show. BTW, Pollicle is the Dog equivalent of Jellicle Cat.

Really? I would ABSOLUTELY recommend paying to see it, I haven't seen anything that bizarre in years

I'm really hoping they do a How Did This Get Made for it.  It sounds increasingly facsinating.

I can’t wait for Cinema sins to do a video on the movie.

I hate to say it but I gave up on buying riff tracks for movies a long time ago. I’d rather just buy the shorts or the file that includes the movie and the riff together
