If you’ve been following the show you’ll know that we’ve been “anticipating” the new movie adaptation of Cats for quite a while. We thought it sounded weird and maybe a little promising. But then the real information started coming out. Not only were the actors going to be weird humanoid cats, but the sets were going to be built to scale so it looked like the humans were cat sized.
The cast list was also shockingly stacked including Judy Dench, James Corden, Taylor Swift, and Idris Elba to name a few. When the first trailer came out we were a podcast divided. Kristin thought it would be horrible and Wil got even more excited somehow and we were able to chat about all the developments with Sade and Kyle over at Offscreen Babble.
Well we finally saw the movie and boy did it surpass, meet and not live up to our expectations all at once! There were some truly horrifying visuals, the weirdest music we’ve ever heard and a stunning lack of true plot. And this is all leaving aside the crazy amount of bizarre sexual content that feels both explicit and charmingly innocent at the same time.
At the end of the day, Cats was definitely a movie that we saw and we will definitely be thinking about it for a long time one way or another. We’d love to hear what you thought about “Cats” so take a listen and let us know!
