Irrational number

Cinematrographically gorgeous, philosophically and theologically provocative, this movie will keep the thoughtful person engaged, on several levels, long after he/she has left the theater. Aside from being an enjoyable experience, the movie raises questions about the ultimate value of a thoroughly rational approach to dealing with life's vicissitudes (hence, I think, the titular reference to the mathematical constant, pi). Definitely two hours and five minutes well spent.

Life of Pi

this is a movie not to be missed. The effects are breath taking, but more important, the story comes to life, especially in 3D.The actors, animals, storms all make for an exciting film.

Life of Pi

This is the kind of a story that probably wouldn't have been able to be effectively made into a movie 10 years ago...but these days, anything is possible... Fascinating story, and a visually stunning job of telling it. The tiger deserves an award.

Underwhelmed

I was so excited for this movie but sorry to say it was not worth it, and definitely not worth watching in 3D. If all the unnecessary filler was cut, it would be 30 minutes, not 2 hours. In no way was this movie 'the next Avatar'. I was expecting a visual feast. The CGI in the clips edited for the trailers were absolutely beautiful. I was expecting to see many more breathtaking moments but I did not. The trailers showed all the scenes that were worth watching, and besides those few minutes, it was a big fat bore. There was way too much narration, it was way too slow, and the ending never ended but, at the same time seemed like an afterthought. They should have ended with the tiger walking into the jungle, or integrated the ending human story into the animal story. For example, utilizing flashback scenes when Pi explains what happened with his mother and the cook, would have made it flow with the style of rest of the film. Underwhelmed.

Incredible

I heard of the book and knew not a whole lot about it. Was I incredibly surprised. This movie is just flat out incredible. It moved me, and has still has me thinking, and even feeling the movie, afterwards. Many have posted good summaries here and I'll just say that you have to see this film to really experience it. I'm surprised it is not doing better at the box office - it deserves any movie-goers attention to be seen on the big screen.
