Movie Trash at The Nook presents CATS!
Saturday, April 23rd at 8pm
Just before the pandemic ruined our lives, director Tom Hooper tried his best to beat Covid to the punch with his mind-boggling screen adaptation of the Broadway hit Cats.
Imagine these filmmakers being given $100 million dollars to make a movie based on a stage play that already doesn’t really make sense, has pretty mediocre songs, and is uncomfortably horny for being an entirely feline cast… then these filmmakers have zero oversight to make the most bonkers fever dream of a movie you can imagine. There are choices made here that are so consistently nonsensical that you get desensitized to its weirdness in real time.
All of this is true, while also seemingly 100% true that most of the artists involved believed they were making something great that would win all the Oscars. That is a recipe for the kind of movies we love… sincere and batshit crazy.
The all-star cast includes James Corden, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, , Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Francesca Hayward, and inexplicably Judi Dench and Ian McKellen (do these two really need the money? They are certainly too good for this, and you can tell they know it by the exhausted look in their eyes the whole movie).
Show up early to grab a beer and a good spot (bringing a lawn chair isn’t necessary, but encouraged).
As with all Movie Trash screenings, this is free and open to the public. But if you want to throw Orlando Pop-Up Movie Services a few bucks for putting it on, it would be graciously accepted.
