Episode 78 of The Movie Robcast is proof that bad publicity can be as effective as positive hype. Rob Daniel had no intention of seeing Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit stage show. And then the negative reviews arrived. And kept on arriving. And conjured such bizarre and terrible images of what awaited audiences for Cats that he had to see the horrors for himself.
Paying £10, he saw… oh did he see. And now cannot unsee. Rob Wallis is a little kinder towards the film, but not enough to give a pull line that could get The Movie Robcast its first poster quote.
So, prepare for a journey to a fantastical place that should be full of wonder, but instead resembles The Island of Dr. Moreau. Where cats have human faces, mice have human faces and cockroaches have human faces. Where cats have hands and wear trainers. And everyone sings, but there is not a single good song to be had. A toxic place where no-one is feline fine.
