Cats is an Abomination
Written by Caelan Doyle
The trailer for Cats (based off the famous Broadway musical) came out yesterday, and it’s horrifying to say the least. The list of stars in this frightening CGI abomination is too long to list, but I'm going to anyway: Taylor Swift, James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Ian Mckellen, Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Rebel Wilson, and oddly, Jason Derulo. As for the “digital fur technology”... it’s bad. Really, really bad. Instead of using costumes or practical effects, they used CGI, which it gives the cats this weird uncanny valley movement. They even decided to keep the hands, feet, and nose on the cats all human for reasons I do not know. The movement of these cats is off putting, which I assure you is an understatement. They move in a way that is confidence that I will be seeing Cats (2019) on opening night, December 20th.
