On Christmas Day, we went to catch Alvin and The Chipmunks 3. Olivia (my classmate) went with her Daddy to watch and they said it was a nice movie, really suitable for kids. So after much deliberation, I decided to go watch it. The movie was given a classification of "G", so it must be safe for kids to watch (compared to Smurfs which had a classification of PG13).
So we went to watch at Yishun GV with free movie tickets from Daddy's company. Caught the morning show, so that I can come back to sleep in the afternoon. Was early so we went to Northpoint and saw the advertisement for Mr Moon. Missed that when they were here at Yew Tee Point
Anyway, when the movie started, I truly enjoyed it .... until the Uncle Ian appeared in his chicken mascot suit. I started to fidget a little, closing in on Mummy and Daddy .... still not too bad compared to The Smurfs movie when Gargamel appeared. Somehow or rather, I knew who the unfriendly guy was, even when I did not fully understand what was said.
But the breakpoint had to be the eruption of the active volcano, which sent splatters of molten lava all about ... and compounded with some other kids, which broke down and cried, I did the same ... really wailed !!! So Mummy had to carry me in her seat, and try to comfort me .... I turned to sobbing .... and occasionally wailing. Fortunately, the volcano eruption scene did not last too long, and chipmunks and gang manage to escape unharmed. Then I returned back to my normal state, and agreed to sit in my own seat.
Sigh ... is there a movie that is classified more benign than"G", like "C", meaning "Childish" or "Cartoonish" ???
