There are many ways that I can approach writing about Tom Hooper’s Cats. I could be plucky and say it’s such a bad movie that you will have fun with it. Go see it and witness the movie everyone loves to hate! I could be scathing and tell you it’s the most abominable piece of cinema ever concocted by people in the industry, even some that have had a shred of success. Alas, I think the way I am going to go about this is to lament the amount of money spent on this absolute trash fire. Cats is as awful as the way you felt when you saw the first trailer and only proceeds to torture the audience from beginning to end. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical was a smash-hit on broadway, for what reasons I could not explain, but for some reason (probably money?) Tom Hooper thought it would be a good idea to put a cinematic spin on this gathering of hideous human-felines. With CGI graphics that will give you nightmares, music that barely holds a tune, and a cast that seems to have zero respect for itself. Cats is the worst thing to happen to eyeballs since glaucoma.
