My letter of complaint is written and sent off to Golden Village Cinemas. It turns out their corporate headquarters is in the Plaza Singapura mall, which I visit fairly regularly. I'm still not used to having stuff nearby.
Among the eighteen minutes of advertisements was a trailer for Pixar's The Incredibles ... is my mood just spoiled or does this look like a terribly routine movie they're trying? The Authentic Mundane Lives of Superheroes was well-worn by the time John Bryne's She-Hulk and Disney's Darkwing Duck fairly well finished the subject. Pixar addressing it seems like finding the spot where there used to be a smudge where there used to be a dead horse that was beaten, and lobbing a couple photon torpedoes at it. Pixar's got a fine track record, sure, but they did make A Bug's Life, which even the people on A Bug's Life Muck don't remember clearly.
It does seem original for the elastic superhero to be female; stretchiness seems to have been dominated by males ... Plastic-Man, Mister Fantastic, Flatman, Rubberduck, Dale ... Am I overlooking an obvious female elastic superhero besides nikonraccoon?
At the Singapore Post I noticed a sign: ``Exact Change For Photo Booth -- Please `Q' (sic) If You Need Changing.'' Also, says another sign, if you get cash back via Nets (a debit card network), you also get a free bottle of water. I'd paid cash, so I don't know if it was a Newater promotion.
