This holiday season, you have a choice: J.J. Abrams, or Jellicle cats. Which to choose? Well

Was Rey blind when she's born? Can Poe see in the dark?
Would Finn look at a king? Would Luke sit on his throne?
Can Rose say of her bite that it's worse than her bark?
Is Hux the cock of the walk when he's walking alone?

Because Jellicles are and Jellicles do
Jellicles do and Jellicles would
Jellicles would and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do

    My wife hasn't partaken of the devil's lettuce in nearly a year. She will get high on Christmas and I will take her to this and it will be great.

    There's a part of me that would love to be absolutely wasted in an empty theatre with a few friends for this nightmare

    Let it crash over me in waves

    I tried VERY hard to talk my Rise of Skywalker group into a double feature and was roundly rejected

    I’ll show them

    I heard this movie is basically about a death cult.

    Why are they marketing this as a happy family holiday film?

    How you gonna explain your kids why the cat committed suicide?

    Apparently in the 90s there was a cancelled mixed-media animated Cats movie that was going to be directed by the same people that did Fievel Goes West?!

    The concept art seems cool, tho apparently they tried to turn the musical into a traditional story (which the new film maybe does too?) I think that is probably a mistake. CATS should not have a plot

    this is my one and only plea about this: PLEASE don't go see this just because it's supposed to be a horror show. let's stop rewarding crap with our money

    I've seen Jupiter Ascending so many times and it hasn't boosted Hollywood's propensity to make entertainingly high budget bad movies, as hard as I've tried

    I'd rather pay to see a stunning failure that tried than something comfortably mediocre

    Inspired crap should be rewarded. It is the generic crap that shouldn't be rewarded.

    Sometimes I watch a bad movie and love it because of all the earnest love that went into it like a big budget version of an earnest student play.

    Man, Jupiter Ascending was actually pretty disappointing as even a bad movie outside of like four or five scenes
    And one of those scenes is that Terry Gilliam cameo

    Well I was only going to go and see Cats once, but sure I guess I can budget to go and see it like five times instead.

    I'd give this movie 1000 dollars if it meant we get more weird failures and less safe boring ass blockbusters

    I'm afraid I've already asked my sister if she wanted to see this when she's down and she replied "yesssss".

    I do actually hope to like it on a genuine, rather than ironic, level tho. I think there's at least a chance that this will happen. I like musicals! I like surrealism! I like movies that push at the edges of what Hollywood movies are supposed to do. I think I liked the CATS VHS when I was a kid (tho not as much as the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcast tape). I liked Tom Hooper's last musical adaptation that everyone else hated. I like Rocky Horror Picture Show, which some reviewers have been comparing CATS to, and I've never agreed with the notion that RHPS is "so bad it's good" (I think it succeeds perfectly well at what it sets out to do).

    On the other hand, I almost never like photoreal mocap CG animation. The main exception I can think of is Gollum, whom I was enthralled by when Two Towers came out along with everyone else, but I imagine it's easier to pull off a creepy swamp monster than a sexy cat person

    Jupiter Ascending gave us Sean Bean saying "Bees don't lie" with complete sincerity which is worth its entire budget

    I literally cannot envision a scenario where I would watch Cats.

    I would have to be comatose or forcibly restrained.

    I just love that the reviews aren't "this movie bad, pee pee poo poo bad movie"

    they're all "this movie boiled my eyeballs and pulled my soul out of my butthole, my children will never know peace, humanity is lost for god has forsaken us, all of cinema was a mistake that has damned us, t-swift did alright"

    Part of me is morbidly curious about how much of that is just hyperbole to stand out.

    I'm secondhand excited for those of y'all that are jazzed for this. It is 100% a movie I will never see, but I am just delighted with how pumped y'all are for this weirdness.
