“Cats”, how bad can it be? I mean all I’ve been hearing is how bad it is, like ridiculously bad. This, I just have to witness myself because I don’t believe it. You see we are talking about one of the most beloved and longest running musicals ever to be on Broadway. How can it be bad?
*The MEAT* The story is *Totally the Same* as the musical. Besides adding one new song, they didn’t change it or even tweak it one bit. So, it’s not the story and definitely not the music….
*The POTATOES* “Cats” has an *All-Star Cast*. I’m talking Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, Taylor Swift even does a song. James Corden has a fun little number and Jenifer Hudson does a fantastic job on one of the biggest songs in musical history, “Memories”. So, it’s not the acting or performances….
*The VERDICT* Ok, I figured it out. The problem is the make-up and CGI. The make-up covered the actors so much it was hard to tell who they were, and the CGI made them look like a *Freaky Cross between Human and Cat*. So incredibly freaky that my eyes kept telling my brain that there was something wrong. The CGI also ruined all the dancing for me because it looked fake. I can’t recommend this movie at all; it’s just looks too weird.
