Never before seen on television, the international blockbuster centers around the students of class 3-b, on their way to a field trip. After being gassed, they awaken to find themselves on a remote island where they are instructed to kill each other as part of a government law to deal with out of control students. And only one can survive. Banned in several countries for its violent content, »
Ang Lee's majestic tale of survival and spirituality Life of Pi is a rare film that leaves you pondering its message for days on end. Like Hugo before it, Life of Pi is also a visual manual to effectively leveraging 3D filmmaking for enhancing rather than overshadowing a narrative.
Analogizing the Life of Pi Blu-ray 3D package in terms of finding a life partner, it's the total package.
Told primarily via flashbacks, Life of Pi is one middle-aged Indian man's answer to an interviewing Canadian writer looking for an extraordinary story. Pi (Irraf Khan, as an adult) promises the hungry writer that he will "believe in God" upon hearing his tale of beating the odds, which is hook enough to reel in and captivate even the most atheist ears.
Pi's telling of the story is highly philosophical as he mixes religious encounters like ingredients to bake a cake. In young »
One of the films with the biggest Oscar buzz behind it this year was Life of Pi; and if you didn’t get a chance to see it in theaters it’s available now on blu-ray. Come check out our review to see if all the commotion was worth it, and if you should add the film to your movie shelf.
When Life of Pi released in theaters, I wasn’t exactly sure how to feel. I read the book back when it first released on the suggestion of my English teacher. Yes, I was that kind of student. The one who read books and discussed them with teachers for fun; not because I was assigned to. You caught me, I’m a nerd.
Anyway, I read this book when it was first out, before it became a hit, and long before filmmakers considered making it into a film. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, »

Visionary director Ang Lee crosses over into the digital world of 3D with his Oscar-nominated film Life of Pi. The film, which has been celebrated by many, might just be one of the best-looking 3D films ever made, but does it have what it takes to stretch beyond being just a visual spectacle, much like Fox’s previous box office success Avatar? No. Lee’s attempted inspirational tale between a boy and a tiger lost at sea unfortunately collapses on itself early on and never washes ashore to safety. Life of Pi is a special effects achievement without a doubt, but it’s far from a masterpiece.
Pi (Suraj Sharma/Irrfan Khan) is an upbeat and courageous young man that embraces every religion with a smile on his face. His life is presented through two lenses, both as an adult and a young boy. Clearly, his younger self is full of hope and adventure, »

Ang Lee is without a doubt one hell of a visual director. His stories range depending on the film, but he almost always knocks it out of the park from a visual standpoint. Life of Pi is his first foray into the 3D world and the result is nothing short of spectacular. I didn’t care so much for the film’s story or characters, but looking at it through 3D glasses was perhaps one of the biggest theatrical highlights of 2012 for me. I was beyond wowed by how he presented the story of a boy and his tiger stranded on a boat.
Again, the story never resonated with me and left me feeling very cold and generally mixed by everything I just watched, »
