Life Of Pi

I was not a fan of 3D ( i generally find that it confuses the senses )but I must admit that I am now

I doubt I will ever experience such a pure cinematic event as LIFE OF PI again, for it is truly an innovative,wonderfully crafted and intensely beautiful Work of art rather than just a mere movie. A movie which depicts the amazing physical and spiritual survival journey of a young ship wrecked Indian student.

I went with an open mind and I was totally and utterly moved by the sheer overwhelming nature of it all

  3. It is gone from our theaters now, but I wish I had gotten to see it. This is a movie that you have to see in the movies and seeing it on a DVD won't do it justice.

  5. Lots of people are saying that. I have to go before it's too late.

  6. Hmm, sounds like I may like to rent, I don't see much in 3D anyway.

  7. 3-D doesn't work well with our glasses, but I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the movie so much!

  8. I'm so glad you loved it - so did I, and so did my whole family, even my 12-year-old son. It was truly one of the most fantastic movies I've ever seen in my life. Wasn't it just amazing? And so true to the novel.

  9. Having read the book, I don't think I'll bother with the film. But you do tempt me.

  10. Ah, now a film you've seen which I've been purposely avoiding (though it's not disappeared from our local cinemas yet). Anything to do with animals, especially when they are featured in key 'roles' (and even when they are CGIs) I tend to shun - the identification with their mistreatments, misfortunes or otherwise is just too uncomfortable to bear. But despite all that I'm now wondering if, in the light of what you've just said, I really ought to rush to catch it - especially since it's just been nominated for 9 BAFTAs. Clearly a film of 'significance'. Oh, decisions!

    1. There ARE a couple of upsetting scenes, but they are integral to the storyline and are very well done.
      I, like you was a little unsure about going to see the film, but for a different reason.....quite simply I hate 3D....
      But like I said, the film is quite, quite beautiful

    2. Thanks, J.G. Still can't make up my mind, though I'm not sure about those scenes you call 'upsetting'. Perhaps I'll leave it until it comes round again on the back of the BAFTA and Oscar awards, some of which it'll surely scoop.

    3. Go and see it, it's worth it

  11. I saw it twice. The first time without 3D and then went back to see it with 3D because I thought 3D would add to the experience which it did. The early scene where the bird seems to fly right over our heads is worth it alone.
    I do however agree there are some upsetting parts.
    Cheers Peter

  12. I avoid 3D films since I've had real issues with vertigo attacks - diagnosed as Migraine Associated Vertigo but visual stimulus that makes me feel "wobbly" is something I avoid - e.g. stood on a platform as a train goes by I will steadfastly fix my eyes on something above the train on the other side for example.

    I've heard this is a really good film however but I still think if I do see it I'll wait to see it in 2D...

  13. Our Theaters are 3 hours away...that being said, i think we may just have to slip into the city to see this one - i have only heard good reviews of it..and i love adventure tales that bring you somewhere not just physically but mentally too...
