My dog dou dou <我的狗蚪蚪>

So.. it has been a long time since I last do a movie review. Actually it has been a long time since I last blogged too. So I guess... time to go back to my #foreveralone blogging world. Oh by the way, just a heads up, no, this is not about my dog, yes, i have a dog, but no, his name is not Dou Dou. And here's a picture of my dog =)

Back to the topic, yesterday I was invited by Jackie to go to a special screening of a Singaporean film called My Dog Dou Dou <我的狗蚪蚪>, directed by Ng Say Yong. Here's a picture of the dog from the movie:

It's so adorable! Makes me wanna hug him too! And here's the movie trailer just in case you haven't heard of this film before. (And honestly speaking, I only knew about it yesterday)

As you can see from the trailer, it's a story about a boy and a dog. After they got struck by a lighting, things start to change. The greed, what people will do for money and things they'll do to get more. The love, how it makes people (some) realize that money is not everything.

Don't really like the font color used in the beginning of the movie tho, as it's pretty hard to see and read. For those who are color blind (not me), it's gonna be hard for you to see, well unless you don't really care who produced and directed it, then yea, this is not a problem for you.

Camera shot used, mostly still shots (low angle, long shot, medium shot) well since it's a fantasy-action drama, consider quite alright, and the fact that we all already know that it's gonna be focusing mostly on the dog and the boy. Love the close up shot towards the end between the dog and the boy (that's the part that made me almost cry).

I must say the dog's acting is really great, and that it's really well trained. But, on my opinion, it was not really smooth at some part as too much cut was used, especially the part where the boy and the dog firstly met at the playground.

Overall, it was an ok film, suitable for the family, dog/pet lovers.
