They could have done it better. Just going the Avatar route probably would have fared better.
Ouch, this has to smart.
‘Cats’ Bound To Lose At Least $71M After All Ancillaries: Here’s How – Deadline
I'm not surprised that they tried to make the movie, since they've been trying to make a movie out of Cats since it opened. I am surprised that NObody saw those designs and said, maybe we need to rethink that look.
It might have fared better if they'd just made the cats look less horrific.
Hooper allegedly didn't require the actors to wear motion capture suits or any tracking dots, making the VFX artist's jobs 1000% harder, and would explain why things like Judi Dench's hands or background people got completely missed out, and the faces look plastic-y, because the artists are having to animate these faces without the reference points of tracking dots
That's better than a scene of her licking her own ass.
Like she does figuratively all the time?
Parental guidance suggested?
I think the worst part about this movie is it reinforces the stereotypical belief that musicals turn guys gay.
I went with my niece to see this ,and it is a hilarious mess.I'm totally convinced this movie is about a suicidal cat cult .
That’s basically what Cats has been about all along.
Usually, film this bad has trolls from nowhere defending it tooth and nail claiming it is "a VicTim of cRitICS!!"
Even the trolls don't support this?! What kind of train wreck do we have here?!
One that assures us that our extinction is coming soon.
Was this seriously done on purpose?Because when I saw what going to Heaven side layer was I knew that this had to be some strange cult called the Jellicle Cats.
Cats. The 6th dimension
"A director and his film crew travel into another dimension populated by human shaped cat people. They find wonder and death........."
Critic- It's like King Kong meets Les Miserable meets Planet of the Apes
Heck I'd watch it
Yes. They're a cult of cats who sacrifice someone thinking they will be reborn into a better life. When they're probably just killing them.
I mean, in the musical they ascend somewhere on a floating tire. I don't know whether that's Mr. Mistofelees' doing or...what that is.
Yeah, that was kind of dumb of them.
Judi Dench's hands are human, but so are most of the other cats' hands and feet. They have hair blended onto their wrists and ankles, but the hands and feet are generally meant to resemble human ones. "Touch" seems to be a visual theme in the movie and they wanted the human hands look for moments of connection, I guess.
There are all these articles about Judi Dench's hands being missed in the effects process, but that seems to have been a purposeful design choice more than anything else.
That's like him requiring the actors of Les Miserables to sing all their lines live and using the live recording in the film. I guess Hooper is the sort that wants what he wants regardless of whether it makes other people's jobs harder.
In the most recent "FatMan Beyond" podcast, Marc Bernard makes an interesting point, essentially about how Tom Hooper makes random decisions that make post production a nightmare on his films:
In Les Miserables, he decided not to use a "click track" to synchronise the singing to the camera in each shot, he insisted on recording all the singing completely live, which made synchronising the audio a post production nightmare. It also meant the actors had to wear earpieces which fed them the music, which each had to painstakingly digitally removed.
The impression I get is Hooper tries to run a film production like a stage production with no sense of the post production process. Which begs the question of why the hell he isnt working on the stage instead of in film.
Because he got an oscar.
Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but why couldn't a "click track" be used with the live singing?
How is the live signing different than just typical dialog, as far as syncing?
'Cats' Visual Woes Began Early On In Production
Watching this with shrooms in your system is tantamount to a religious experience.
