Watched 'That Girl in Pinafore' a few days ago. It was an amazing and touching movie. It is directed by a Singapore director (Support local films!). The director took a different approach compared to films by Jack Neo.
The movie theater was kinda empty when I watched the movie, with less than 20 audiences. I was also given a free complimentary movie pass from Shaw as I'm one of the first few people who bought tickets for that day. There were many great songs that were played throughout the movie as well. Due to the epic sound system that you get when watching a movie in a cinema, I really enjoyed the songs. I actually bought those songs in iTunes before even watching the movie. Before watching the movie, those songs were nice, but after watching the movie, all the songs made much more sense to me. Whenever I listen to those songs now, I can still remember many of the scenes in the movie.
The overall movie experience was good as expected (It can be better if that Shaw staff don't keep opening the door of the theater hall, it was distracting). The little twist at the end of the movie was quite surprising for me. At least, I didn't expect that kind of ending. I really hoped to see Jia Ming tell Rachael that he is her father, but that didn't happen. The part when May suddenly died, got me 'dumbfounded' in a way. Audiences have no idea why May died. The nearest thing I can relate to is that May wanted to 'surprise' Jia Ming by bringing her daughter back to Singapore to visit Jia Ming for the first time?
Now that I have all those songs purchased in iTunes, it is constantly on repeat. I actually did not know much about 新谣 before. As I started playing those songs at home, my mum went '哇， 你现在也学人家听新谣'. Really hope to see the movie release in DVD, or even better Blu-Ray :)
As always, take care and I'll see you soon
