A lot of people don’t know that Andrew Lloyd Webber only writes the music, not the lyrics or script, for his musicals and is mostly just a Producer. All the projects his name are attached too all seem to follow the same huge set pieces with melodrama dialogue formula. It’s the same formula that Hollywood uses for big time blockbusters like The Fast and the Furious or Transformers. But, because Webber is seen as some sort of genius, people blindly assume it’s “art”. It wasn’t until one of his works was released to a mass audience did people realize how lazy and weird Webbers plays really are. It doesn’t help that the film is also filled with countless other issues, like rushed CGI, but with this base it’s impossible to be good.
With all that said… I loved the Cats movie and have watched it over 10 times already. I decided to make a Cats movie review that mostly centers around Andrew Lloyd Webber and how I ended up falling in love with this garbage.
