Summary: this movie was like cast away but with no island. I was not looking forward to this movie because Ang lee made this movie but the movie didn't suck.this movie as a good story and brilliant writing.
Summary: The thing that is really important when you watch this movie is to keep an open mind. It is really different from anything I had ever seen before. It's also not very interesting to start with, but, as with a lot of movies, it's worthwhile to stick around. In the end, I found it very enjoyable and visually beautiful.
Excerpt: Wow what an amazing, best, Christian, drama, faith, action, story, and family move. I love Life of Pi and I saw it in theaters twice. I really think its defiently one of the best movies ever made. I love it how Richard Parker the tiger doesn't kill Pi in the movie. I love it also that it's Christian and faith movie. If Life of Pi would have won the movie of the year that woul have been excellent.
Excerpt: A beautiful film! Fueled by some amazing and dazzling visual effects, Life of Pi is a fantastical story of survival, but there's so much more to it. On the surface it's a survival story, but it's also a poignant tale about finding oneself. As the film draws to its close, you think you have a grasp on the message, but then the ending concludes and you realize there's a little bit more to think about.
Excerpt: What a beautiful film. I just can't say enough about the visual aspect of this film. I have no reference point, I have not read the book, which is probably a good thing. The story is interesting. A boy shipwrecked and living on a lifeboat with a tiger. I'm not sure I got all of the references to God, or Krishna, or whatever other religion Pi was practicing at the time. In fact, I'm not sure that this isn't a film about the lack of a "God.
Excerpt: A shipwreck leads Pi Patel to a wonderful journey over the sea water with a zebra, orangutan, hyena and Bengal tiger in a lifeboat. With them, he discovers and realizes the courage within him. *** Just a disclaimer: I failed to see the entire movie as by the time I sat down in a movie theater to see this film, I was really tired from school and so I fell asleep I think 10 minutes before it ended. ANYWAY, I would not say that this movie is a crap or whatever.
Excerpt: Life of Pi is a beautiful movie to look at, but has a fatal flaw that keeps me from liking it as much as the critics seem to. That flaw is that it doesn’t mean anything. There is no profound message in the story or complex idea, there is a clumsy “coexist” message in the film, but it’s barely recognizable. Is that wrong? No. It’s perfectly okay for a movie to have a lame message or even no message at all.
Excerpt: Beautiful, enriching, and emotionally impactful, Life of Pi is cinematic poetry at some of its most authentic. It's a compelling blend of visual effects and storytelling. I watched the film on Blu-ray/3D, and I must say the 3D was jaw-dropping at many points. The visuals are handled incredibly well, used as a storytelling tool and create a massive spectacle. The CGI tiger, Richard Parker, looks outstanding.
Excerpt: Be bold and state your opinion...Is what i keep telling myself as i only gave this film 2 stars as everyone else on this planet seems to be rating it higher. Truth be told that i was only just starting to get into this film when Pi (Suraj Sharma) was thrown into the lifeboat so that leaves about half the movie that i found interesting. I will give kudos for the cinematography here as it was nothing short of breathtaking!
