The censorship scene is a lot better compared to the past. Singapore's society is changing, slowly, but changing. A decade ago, it would have been unthinkable to even suggest a casino, and we now have two. NC-16 was created to make a compromise between R-21 and PG. I don't know if you know, but the NC-16 rating actually helped to reduce the amount of censorship, because the R-21 rating tends to kill a lot of revenue for a movie, and the amount of censorship needed to tone down to a PG rating is not easy.

Singapore is a much different country from what it was before.

Cheers.

I agree with you when it comes to revenue, though I find it incredulous to air a reduced amount of entertainment for the same price.

Also, there is a reason why certain scenes are violent, gruesome or provocative in nature; it is to bring across a strong message or to open up characters. It is like using the word "bad" to describe a scenario where someone throws a corprolite pile into a fan - that term is too mild and general whereas "shit hits the fan" is more direct of a description, and pro-censors support the former word because the adjective "bad" just sounds less offensive than "shit".

If it is simply hack-and-slash I won't go to the cinema for entertainment, I can always play Diablo. In this case if it gets censored with scene-cuts, it no longer makes any sense or "rated" because the shooting is akin to using a freedom (of gun ownership) to dispense "justice" to jerkass behaviour that are often let to slide.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
