    I had the privilege of viewing a screening of Cats Dancing on Jupiter and I must say, I am utterly impressed. This movie is clever, well written, light hearted at parts and very dark at other parts, funny, and very sexy. I've seen a good deal of Amanda Righetti's work and she does not disappoint with her expert portrayal of a scarred woman, able to fully exude the proper emotion for any given part. Every bit as capable is Erica Taylor, and paired together the up-and-coming Erica Taylor and Amanda Righetti make a stunning duo. They're beautiful, they make you really feel their story, they drive you wild and disturb you just as easily. Jonathan Bennett, Anneliese van der Pol, Richard Grieco and Peter Lewis are all also of note and together along with the co-stars they really immerse you in their world, making one almost believe everything that's happening and accept it as fact. I was taken aback by the amount of raw emotion connecting me to the personal lives and stories of each individual actor and even more so regarding the group as a whole. The story is amazing, you never guess correctly what is going to happen but you still try every step of the way. It keeps you on the edge of your seat indefinitely constantly craving more. I look upon the release of this gem with a kind of giddy anticipation. Rarely do I watch a movie more than once but I will definitely see this again. I will be recommending this movie to everyone I know and I urge those that read this to give it a watch. Cats Dancing on Jupiter is literally interesting from the very first scene. I'm trying not to give anything away here but lets just say it's exciting right off the bat.

    Falling in love with these characters has lead me to look into the cast a bit more fully. I'd like to mention Anneliese van der Pol in particular because I watched 'That's So Raven' back when it was on, just like most other people my age. She blossomed into a sincerely beautiful woman, a talented actress, and a good musician as well. They're all good actors, and from here on out I will be watching any of their new projects.

    This movie is filmed, by the way, in 4k uhd (Ultra high definition) and I don't know if many of you have heard about this yet but WOW, what a difference. The clarity in the visual aspects of the film is astounding, its no surprise to hear that Samsung, Youtube (Google), Amazon and Netflix are making it a standard and doing research into the field. Along with enjoying emotional connection to the cast, I also love to have my eyes pleased and trust me, there's nothing more pleasing than Amanda Righetti and Erica Taylor in 4k.

    All in all I give Cats Dancing on Jupiter a 10/10 stars rating because of how engaging, appealing, and simply satisfying it is. Trust me, you're going to want to watch this.

    Warning: Spoilers
    I bribed someone onto the sound stage when they were doing the score and I saw what appears to be the best indie of the year. Amanda looks amazing in the film. She has a style similar to Bridgette Bardot.

    Her character is funny, but also very dark. The same could be said about the movie which has a unique look and I understand they shot it on the Red Camera System.

    From what I saw. the pace is very fast and the dialog witty and smart. I do not know what to compare it to except for Rivers Edge and Black Widow.

    The cast is large and the acting quite good. Rex Smith, who I saw on stage, is charming. Anneleise is totally different that Raven days.
  • I found CDOJ to be thrilling from beginning to end. Enough action to keep you glued to the screen, enough good looking actors to keep you in story, and a production that is more than ample in quality and design.

    If you're looking for an exciting watch, and you're in the mood for something sexy and smooth, this is a great movie for you.

    As I was watching the first time through, I only noticed certain things, and when I watched it again, I noticed so much more. It's one of those movies that makes you want to come back again and again for another look.

    The pace is quick, the lines are edgy, the dialogue is perfectly placed and intentionally thought provoking.
