George Lucas changed Han Solo’s scene with Greedo in Star Wars: A New Hope, Disney confirmed
Why? Just give the fans the option to watch the original, uncut, and otherwise unmodified.
For the same reason TLC is what it is today.Why is this product a thing? Who the hell would ever buy a DVD of a show like Cheaters, except maybe if you knew someone on it? That seems like a veeeeeery niche market., right? But it has over 50 reviews!
Then there's David Farrier's review which is a horror show on its own.Boston Globe

The BeatCan you make a movie so bad that the Academy takes back your Best Director Oscar? Asking for Tom Hooper.
The film that everyone is in is largely the musical of cats singing about what kind of cat they are and this repeats until you pray for the sweet release of death. Tom Hooper’s direction to his actors for this semblance of a plot was to act it super horny. That doesn’t give Cats a raw sexual energy as much as it makes everything incredibly uncomfortable like when Rum Tum Tugger (Jason Derulo) is dumping milk into cats’ faces or Macavity just seems more nude than other cats even though technically all the cats are nude. But if it wasn’t enough to make the cats horny (why are they so horny), Hooper also feels the need to make it gross by having them dig through trash and play up their animal instincts. Cats always feels like it’s two seconds away from turning into a furry orgy in a dumpster. That’s the energy you have to sit with for almost two hours.
Hollywood ReporterCats is the worst thing to happen to cats since dogs.
Slashfilm"Cats” is both a horror and an endurance test.
VarietyThere is a thin line between idiocy and genius, and Cats pukes a hairball on it and rubs its ass all over it.
Little White LiesNine may not be enough lives for some of the stars to live down their involvement in this poorly conceived and executed adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical.
The PlaylistI felt the light inside me slowly fading.
New York TimesOnce Tom Hooper's 110 minutes of Cats are over, theater is dead. And we unchosen ones are left, tragically, to continue living.
VultureIt's amazing to see what Adult Swim can accomplish with a $100 million budget. I never knew Tom Hooper was capable of making a surrealist nightmare that would rival Jodorowsky, that could baffle David Lynch, that would prompt even the dark god Cthulhu to emit an impressed eldritch shriek of “nehehehehehe”
The Daily TelegraphTo assess Cats as good or bad feels like the entirely wrong axis on which to see it. It is, with all affection, a monstrosity.
Den of GeekGlad to report that Cats is everything you’d hoped for and more: a mesmerisingly ugly fiasco that makes you feel like your brain is being eaten by a parasite. A viewing experience so stressful that it honestly brought on a migraine.
Vanity FairOne of the weirdest and most garish monstrosities to be birthed out of the Hollywood studio system in this century.
The GuardianIt’s an ugly stray who smells bad and should not be invited into your home, certainly. And yet it is its own kind of living creature, worthy of at least some basic compassion.
IndiewireA purr-fectly dreadful hairball of woe. 1/5.
NewsdayTom Hooper’s feline musical is an absurd and exuberant mess. This visually dense adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit is at once too crazy for this world, and not quite crazy enough.
The WrapFans of the stage musical may swoon, but others will be severely allergic.
Bleeding CoolAndrew Lloyd Webber’s feline fantasy musical becomes a garish hairball. It’s hard to “ruin” Webber’s already strange musical, but Tom Hooper’s wrongheaded attempt certainly tries. Tom Hooper’s jarring fever dream of a spectacle is like something that escaped from Dr. Moreau’s creature laboratory instead of a poet’s and a composer’s feline (uni)verse, an un-catty valley hybrid of physical and digital that unsettles and crashes way more often than it enchants.
SlantCats is a strange beast to begin with, but the combination of strange CGI makes the translation from stage to screen even worse.
Rendy ReviewsThis adaptation gets straight to the heart of the material, which is basically two hours of stray cats introducing themselves.
Screen JunkiesOn a scale of one to Zemeckis, Hooper's Cats boldly goes beyond the uncanny valley and creates a tier of its own.
The Jam ReportA spectacular disaster...This movie feels like a prank but I don't know on whom.
RTE IrelandThe most inexplicably bizarre film of the year, it's jawdropping for all the wrong reasons.
First off, full disclosure - I am not a cat person. Second off - after watching this frankly mortifying film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, I'm not altogether sure I am a movie person anymore either.
In my opinion, it isn't worth spending on a PC over an Eksbonx just for gaming, despite that it's the way I would always go as it's ultimately better value. I don't regret throwing money at my PC two years ago with a 1080Ti and so forth but it cost significantly more than a newer Xbox would have done at the time. Depends on what else you'll do with the PC too. If you just want to play the game and don't mind the limitations of the console, it's a far cheaper option.Is it worth beefing up my PC for the game or fine on console?
