Pussy is the undeniably obvious and deliberately provocative first word that's perfect to use if you have limited time to engage your reader and you'd like them to get to at the least the end of the first sentence of your description. In this part of the overview there originally was a story that ended up with Cats in the plot of Inception but then I realised there was a South Park episode where they did something with sheep and the plot of that movie so, time completely wasted and desperate for more content, this is what we ended up with. Sorry about that. I have to say though my Catception thing was good, it's a shame you missed out.
I picked CATS (2019). Sidey and I have been playfully jesting about reviewing this since it came out 18 months or so ago, which is coincidentally the films running time. 'It would be funny' we said on many occasions. Well, 3 and a half minutes in the joke was over and the horrific reality of what we'd committed to had become fully apparent. Trust me when I say there is no novelty value to be had in watching the entire movie. You can replicate the viewing experience by leaving the trailer on repeat for 2 hours, you can listen to the absolutely excruciating soundtrack on YouTube and you can reproduce the feeling of watching this movie by attacking a litter of newly born Husky's with a handsaw and a set of clamps.
Gabby's Dollhouse is unfortunately the real victim this week, the dads being too jaded by Cats's relentless awfulness to fully appreciate the value of this multi-media edutainment programme on Netflix. Promoting a strong problem-solving mentality, providing early inroads into STEM and as yet unsullied by crass commercialism, this is a bit of a gem.
