If anyone wants to see it with a fun crowd in a full house, go see it at the AMC on 42nd Street on Tuesdays. Only $6. Lots of people were laughing in the "wrong" places but clearly having a blast, myself included.

Saw a preview of the new "Peter Rabbit" movie at "Little Women" last night and, whatever special effects it employed,  the rabbits are absolutely adorable, realistic and not scary at all. Perhaps it would have been smarter for "Cats" to have gone in that direction. The preview for the new "Dr. Dolittle" also featured a bunch of beautifully rendered, expressive animals and the one for "The Call of the Wild" a melt-your-heart lead performance by a CGI dog. Were all these animal movies scheduled to be released in the coming weeks  in hopes of riding the would-be financially lucrative tail of "Cats"? Also, Is there anybody in Hollywood with a fresh new idea? 

Also saw preview for "In the Heights" -- looks like a big and bright production. Keeping my paws crossed.

I was just browsing the local second run theater’s website for an idea of what to do on my day off when in the “SHOWTIMES” second I stumbled on Cats with a text that read: “HELD OVER BY REQUEST- LAST WEEK SHOWING.”

A cult classic is born.

Indeed. I’m attending a private screening in Los Angeles at a major Oscar winning actress’ home in a few weeks. Everyone was asked to not see the film in advance. So many are super excited for this so the Phase 2 of the film is quickly growing.

Oh, they needed to lean into the actual reception of this film more with those features. That bonus features list seems like it was a holdover from their delusions of grandeur for this. 

"...everyone finally shut up, and the audience could enjoy the beginning of the Anatevka Pogram in peace."

That may be true, but for some like me I'm thankful they are including so many features. That behind-the-scene teaser (that was released before the very first trailer) showed a lot of potential and made the BTS action more riveting than before the VFX.
