Title: I've been rejected twice by strict censorship board in Singapore~!! HOW??!?!
Post by: ReconEJ on Apr 20, 2006, 03:14 AM
Sadly, I've been rejected twice by the strict censorship board in my country, Singapore, for the shipment of the BBM dvd which I ordered through amazon.com.

The reason they did not provide for naming the item as undeliverable but what else could attribute to its undeliverability other than it being a R21 movie?

For fellow Singaporeans who have managed to acquire the dvd already, care to share through what means you'd acquired it? I'm totally in support of the original, for it is a dvd worth every cent spent upholding that.

That is a bummer.  Won't the DVD be released in Singapore at some time in the future since they did allow it to be shown in the theaters, unlike in Malaysia?

I feel as if we went to the stone age era and are now living that time with all of this censorship, how ridiculous is that?!  Anyway, I'm sorry that you could not have the DVD deliver to your place!

Just thinking... is the BBM dvd out in Sydney Australia? Because I would be going on a vacation there this coming May and one of the things I would definitely like to have is this dvd~!!!! If in the first place this dvd could not be delivered to my country due to censorship restrictions, is my bringing it back personally from Australia an illegal act? I really don't know, can someone clarify this point for me and let me know where can I buy this dvd from Melbourne?

Thanks

Sorry to hear that ure DVD got rejected.. well from my point of view they're never gonna release the DVD in Singapore.. so many strongly against it.. I got a friend of mine to try and bring the film back for me from Europe but till then i gotta wait for at least a month.. so maybe if u did get pass from Melbourne maybe u could tell me. Thx

Sorry for getting back so late Atlaf, but I was not able to find that DVD in Australia as it was not out on stores yet, so ya...sadly...

When can I ever get it....?

I bought the DVD online from http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/ and it arrived safely last week. Perhaps you may want to try ordering from that website.
