Cat trailer 2019
What it was
A horror, a horror movie, a singing violent horror.
What it was like
What if all the muscles in your body clenched at once and the resulting mess of bones and ligaments spelled out, in bold red capitals, the word ” CATS “? And James Corden was there, singing? What if that? This is not a nightmare. Check your eyes and know yourself to be awake.
How it stimulated us feel
I feel like someone drained all the blood out and gave it to Judi Dench.
Sadly, unavoidably, it’ll breach box-office records and probably get an Oscar nod.
