While I haven't seen Cats yet, a friend sent me a bunch of reviews that show a widely mixed bag between critics, who largely despise the film so far, and audiences, who like but don't love it. The funny thing is that many people who hated it still actually had fun watching the movie, which is kind of baffling. If you liked it, shouldn't you rate it better? We're so focused on what's "good" that we forget that simply being enjoyable is "good," too. I haven't seen it yet to know if I like it or not, but I've seen a few movies critics hated that I still enjoyed.
When the trailer for Cats came out, I remember feeling a bit horror-struck. It felt more like Wonderland, which is fine since I love that fandom too, but it was almost scary. In fact, viewers made scary trailers to go along with it! The cast is phenomenal which makes me really root for it.
Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
