I just saw the movie “Life of Pi” and thoroughly enjoyed the visuals. The story was also good and surreally magical as are most good epic stories. And the twist in the end leaves you surprised and speculating as to what was the actual reality of the tale told during the first 9/10th s of the film.
I saw it in 3D, which reminded me of HDR photography. It jumped out at you, the 3D effect was nice but there was something just a bit unreal about it. But don’t get me wrong, that did not make it unenjoyable; it just alters reality by making it more visually appealing than perhaps reality itself might be. The story itself was a bit sad and a bit uplifting all at the same time and I would definitely recommend seeing it in the theatre as opposed to DVD if it is something that you think you might enjoy. Kind of a spoiler alert:I won’t say what happens to the zebra :*(
