The top ten mistakes director Tom Hooper made with Cats:
1)The dreary art direction and costumes made Les Misérables look elegant.
3)The performers were in a constant state of awe-blank stares of confusion. They must have been seeing the dailies and realize how creepy they looked in their cat outfit!
4)The non-existent story concept inflames the audience
5)The dancing is filmed without any sense of movement, creating the least amount of enjoyment.
6)The repetitive score is annoying.
7)Jennifer Hudson gives a dire and contrived teary version of Memory with only a few moments of chills towards the end of the song when she is allowed to belt.
8)A chandelier to lift Hudson to the heavens—as if we needed a reminder that Andrew Lloyd Weber gave the world Phantom of The Opera
10)Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and James Corden were disastrous casting choices.
