Yeah, i'm still wondering why they choose limited screening even after critics & forum gave lots of excellent reviews on this movie. I don't think because it was rated R will became a major problem of screening there (coz yeah it is a problem here in Malaysia ~as our censorship goes snip,snip~)
“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
Best news I've had this last couple weeks! I was planning to catch it in Singapore cause of the withering disdain i have for the local censorship & cinema houses but it looks like I may be wrong. A lot of it is to do with the box office as well, sadly a large majority of Malaysian denizens are unsophisticated, preferring movies with FGEs (fists, guns and explosions) and long-haired low-conditioner spooky girls for their entertainment. Most likely the promo for Pan is going to hype the monster aspect to draw the crowd.
Or a title than begins with The... like The Ring, The Eye, The Phone, The Maid.
The Cubicle (Dare You Go to Work Again?) The Fridge (You're not the only one who's hungry) The Conditioner (Even when you use it, your hair gets longer and dryer...muhuhahahaha) The Toll (A Voyage...to Hell!! For RM1.60) The Armor (He... Didn't... Make...It...Right!!!)
