A Christmas Carol movie Review

Last weekend went back to Kampar on Friday evening after watching Storm Warrior. Thought not many of my friends will be at Kampar eventually many turn up i.e Mr Leong, Mr. Neoh, Ms Jackie, Ms Chong, Ms Cheow. They all planned to watch 2012 at Kinta City at first, i thought since that a nice show is ok to watch it second times. BUT WTF, after 1 month in the screen, that movie totally SOLD OUT. Not only that, Storm Warrior, Princess n Frog are freaking SOLD OUT. Around 4pm most of the ticket for every movie almost SOLD OUT. **i think Building a NEW cinema hall will be a good business opportunity at there..**



Ok, luckily we still manage to get A Christmas Carol tickets. Arrived there around 230pm, need to wait till 530pm for the show...GOSH, 3 hours to kill before entering cinema. As usual, walk around n talk from constipation to period **thanks to dr. neoh, ms chong, ms cheow n ms jackie's info** After the informative sessions with the professionals already 5 something straight ahead to the cinema hall.. FUCKing CROWDED..

And goes the movie synopsis:





Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter and miserly old moneylender, holds everything that embodies the joys and spirit of Christmas in contempt, keeping to himself and being nasty to people. Scrooge's buisness partner Jacob Marley has died and Scrooge is paying a man for his coffin. He pays him a very small amount and leaves. He walks throughout Victorian England, and as he passes people by everyone becomes quiet and frightend. He walks into his place of buisness and slams the door shut.

Seven Christmas Eve's later, he is still as bitter as he was before. He has an employee named Cratchit who is very poor and can barley afford food for his family. Scrooges nephew walks into the shop and asks to join him for dinner at his house, scrooge gives him an unfriendly christmas hum-bug and tells him to leave. Closing time comes and Cratchit leaves. Scrooge closes up shop and goes home.

That night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who is now forced to spend his afterlife carrying heavy chains forged from his own greedy ways. Scrooge looks out the window and sees many more ghosts suffering the same fate. Marley warns Scrooge that he will suffer an even worse fate if he doesn't repent, and foretells that he will be haunted by three spirits that will help guide him.

Here my summary:
Erm..i really dunno why many parents bring along their child to watch this movie...not sure that the little one will understand it??? Maybe this is Disney's production...

This movie is quite boring, BUT is meaningful. The main theme this movie trying to show "Sharing and Caring" and try not to be so selfish (if i'm not wrong). That true, life is short, we should try to enjoy every moment we have, and also cherish every moment with had. Sometimes, money not everything (but it needed in everything haiz).

Quoted from Cai Kau: " HOW MANY 10 YEARS WE HAVE, WE MUST ENJOY EVERY MOMENT"

My overall review: 6.5/10

p/s: Mr Leong, pls do not USE your HANDPHONE while watching movie...YOU DISTURB ME SLEEPING...hahaha
