Well, as someone in the YT comments said, at least video-game patches are free…

I don't know why but Jim's face on a normal cat's body is hilarious to me.

How sad is it that Jim's face on the cat is far more enjoyable than the CGI of Cats?

As a more hardcore Star Wars fan, those asshole fanatics just ruin it for everybody.

Nobody is innocent, there are merely varying levels of guilt. Oh and Primus hates you.

Maybe it helps that alot of his facial expressions look like ones you'd expect to see on a cat.

Great, it's not enough that films are getting re-released with minor updates to extend their life in theaters, now films are getting "patched" post-release in a desperate attempt to salvage them from bombing. Gotta herd those sheep into the seats.

This is... a bit unfair to Cats—The patch is a minor update to the vfx. I doubt anyone expected that this'd be enough to turn it's fortunes around

Considering how badly the movie bombed I don't see this becoming a trend.

Then again you should never underestimate how greedy these companies can get.

Hollywood loves it some trends. Remember when Harry Potter 7 had to split itself into two movies? After that, for a while suddenly every film had to split itself in bits for whatever reason.

"This is... a bit unfair to Cats"

Is that even possible, though?

[up][up]The thing is, things only become trends if they actually make a lot of money. Cats may not even make its budget back. So far it's only made about $60 million worldwide with a budget of $95 million. This after being out for nearly a month.

Considering how badly the movie bombed I don't see this becoming a trend.

The fact that it was already in the process of bombing, and continued to bomb afterward, means that this didn't matter. The next time someone considers the idea they're not going to look at Cats as a cautionary tale

Is that even possible, though?

It's really not that bad if you're coming into it expecting camp. Much of what you've heard is exaggerated

And thank god that seems to have died with the fantasy YA adaptation trend. I don't even think Divergent did it actually.

Only reason it didn't happen for Divergent is coz the series flopped so hard they never finished it... They basically did the first half of the finale and just gave up.

[up][up][up][up] VFX aside, most of the reaction to Cats is down to people never having seen Cats before. The source material is comically unsuited to being a film, and Tom Hooper decided to deal with that by not dealing with it.

Jim talking about people complaining that Pokemon's DLC as being a terrible thing by pointing out that Pokemon's business model has always been garbage.

[up]that's the thing. I've seen a lot of people complaining about the dlc and it's valid in a vacuum, but the thing is that they act as if Pokemons business model hasn't always been like this when it clearly has. In fact I'd say that paying 30 bucks for dlc is preferable compared to buying a 3rd version, if still shitty.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.

Even without the Third version, Jim points out Pokemon's "One Game for the Price of Two" model is shitty and people just accept it coz it's been around so long. There's no real reason to have two versions other than to make people double dip.
