Pontianak Busuk Nyundal Siang2...
aku bukan nak menjatuhkan rakan2 pembikin film, cuma bg aku setakat hype jer lebih. red herrings!
neway, just finished watching it. cerita about Gamelan primadonna. & some over elaborate dance numbers.
storyline? xde aper yg menarik sgt.
presentation? not scary. nothing new. nothing special... apart from some special fx.
pontianak terapung, thru windshield & thru window! that's about it.
nice entrancing melody, not unlike "Puteri Bunian".
but i love Madi masa kecik. so cute & yummy! taste la sgt! tapi besar jd Rosyam yg mereng. injustice!
now about the time-lapse thingy...
1949... Madie 10thn... Marsani (Ayah Chik) was lets say... at least 30.
so the "modern" period must be 1990s. so Rosyam (Madie) should be 50 & Marsani 70. But it looked more like Madie was 30 & Marsani 50ish!
so, i just have to assume that there was a 20 year gap between them.
and the "modern" era when Marsani died (MUST be the 70s & not 90s, altho the props say otherwise), since its more plausible that the characters portrayed were Madie at 30 & Marsani 50.
and the final scene can be safely presumed as the 90s, as Madie looked like he's around 50.
my point is... shemy should have put a dateline... or period props / atmosphere (in terms of contemporary music on radios for instance) should have been utilised to clearly signify periods.
overall... above average. 6.5/10 ...that's minimum RM10 saved!
