The latest Star Wars movie is in theaters but that’s almost overshadowed by the furry creatures in “Cats.” In home video, Renée Zellweger does Oscar-worthy work as Judy Garland in “Judy.”

Judy

Taking on the role of Judy Garland, a musical legend whose best work in movies and recordings is still around, is a brave effort.

Renée Zellweger deserves credit for tackling the role and her performance is Oscar-worthy.

Her Judy Garland is not exactly an impersonation, but suggests the troubled inner person who was almost overtaken by her blazing talent.

Zellweger’s performance is worth the price of admission even if the rest of the movie is somewhat lackluster. Worth seeing for her possible Oscar contending work.

THEATRICAL RELEASES

Cats

Here’s what you need to know about the movie “Cats” — Save your money.

It’s very difficult to transfer musicals to the screen. “Cats” fails in almost every aspect. But the music, from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, is nice to listen to.

Suspension of disbelief may be part of the movie-going experience (for example this week’s new “Star Wars” film), but “Cats” bungled things badly.

They took the actors and used computer graphics to create human-sized cat-like characters almost completely covered in meticulously rendered fur that ripples in the wind, along with tails and ears that mimic real cats.

But time and time again, they make decisions that bring the viewers out of the suspension of disbelief. Sometimes the actors walk on all fours, but sometimes they stand up and move like humans. Some cats have human hands and bare feet, others wear shoes and when Taylor Swift shows up as Bombalurina, she’s wearing high heels. And some cats wear clothes, even hats, but others don’t. And when the cats/actors finish exuberant musical numbers, they pause and we hear that they’re out of breath.

There’s not much of a plot here, but Andrew Lloyd Webber is responsible for some of the most popular musicals of all time including “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Evita” and “Jesus Christ Superstar,” so the source material is solid. But director Tom Hooper, who wrote the script with Lee Hall, must take responsibility for the lame story and the dubious decision to create computerized versions of the actors.

This movie is not lacking in acting firepower: Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, James Corden and Taylor Swift all put on motion capture suits to be turned into fur-covered characters, but it’s not enough.

Two Palm Trees. OK if it’s for free.

Star War: Episode IX-The Rise of Skywalker

The magic is back.

“Star Wars: Episode IX-The Rise of Skywalker” is the third installment of the final Star Wars trilogy, following “The Force Awakens” in 2015 and “The Last Jedi” in 2017. It brings all the excitement, emotion and thrills that the audience has come to expect.

It features a number of surprise appearances as well, with the return of Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa, using footage shot before Fisher’s death in 2016.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, who wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio (“Argo” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”), the movie brings the conventional elements of storytelling, character development and plenty of action.

The film begins as the villainous First Order is once again threatening peace in the universe in spite of the fact that they have suffered numerous setbacks. They are led by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), who wants to rule the world. Driver shows his range as an actor this month. He’s a frightening threat to humanity here and earlier this month, he was moving as a damaged man trying to save his marriage in “A Marriage Story” from Netflix.
