    I was warded for an emergency operation early last week and ordered by doctor to rest for a week before I could resume "light activities". The first outdoor activity I made was to catch the noon screening of <12 Lotus> at GV Tiong Bahru today. That's suppport for Royston, all right!
    So glad I watched it in the cinema for it is indeed a movie made for viewing in cinemas, unlike some local movies that have not an ounce of cinematic feel to them, even if they are peppered with generous doses of pasar-rate CGI and saturated with disgusting product placement.
    Very impressed by Royston's creativity and resourcefulness. This movie is technically polished, stronger in narrative strength than "881", and certainly more circumspect.
    Every scene is beautifully crafted, though one still has to temporarily suspend one's belief to be able to enjoy the good-feel campiness and dazzling images.
    However, I kept having an uneasy feeling seeing that super-advanced heartbeat monitor behind Mindy Ong at the scene where Huang Yiliang was lying in bed. Is that machine appropriate for the year in which that scene is based? In fact, a friendly nurse had just explained to me the use of that machine during my brief stay at the hospital last week.
    That is just a minor point, not to worry.
    On the whole, I feel that Royston and his team have indeed produced an excellent film, a real cinematic film, that Singaporeans can justifiably be proud of. It is one which I could sit through comfortably, enjoying and not realising how time flies.
    Viva la, Royston! top

    Royston,

    I just watched your film today in BKKIFF.
    It's very impressive.
    But where were you?
    I thought you would come to talk with us after the screening. T_T top

    Hey Royston, you bring local films to the international levels, you're creative in your filming and you dare to be different, so keep up the good work! I love musicals, they bring more emotions than just sit and watch with dialogues. I'm glad we can have our own local musical films.

    Well, I guess why 12 lotus is not as successful as 881 cos both movies have the same kind of theme, getai. Maybe many might think that its no longer fresh in the idea. But why people will watch and comments, cos we all expect Royston to be good. So keep up the good work, and continue to produce even better stuffs, no rushing to produce, no stress.

    All the best, I give my support! top
