Thanks to Nuffnang, I watched Life of Pi two nights back at GSC Signature @ the Gardens. Life of Pi has been making quite a lot of buzz in recent weeks and I have to admit, I haven’t read the book and I don’t know what this movie is all about before stepping into the cinema.
Life Of Pi Plot Summary: Director Ang Lee (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Life of Pi is an awesomely stunning movie in terms of visuals, the film was shot beautifully and with the help of a more advance technology resulting in better interpretation of visual effects; the cinematic experience which Life of Pi has to offer is definitely one mystical experience that you must not miss.
You know, I was wondering to myself – what’s with a story featuring a boy and a tiger being stranded in the middle of Pacific ocean? I’m sure a lot of you thinks the same way as well and trust me, watch the movie.
It’s not the usual blockbusters we get to watch but I kinda like it. It is very imaginative and it makes you think, not think hard but think deep, not that kinda deep that will mess up with your mind but more like it will make you re-evaluate some values/perspective in life.
Life Of Pi which was based on a novel has a solid story and under the vision of Lee Ang, the end result of the movie is a spectacular visual story. That itself makes this film a movie worth watching.
Sometimes, the mysterious, beautiful nature of life can be nonsense and the best thing we can do as humans is to take time to appreciate it. Like the story itself, our lives-the nature of life is circular through endless counts of cycles through various highs and lows, hope and despair, love and loss. Still, we have to embrace it and live on, understand life in our own way and interpret the nature of things around us.
The beautiful yet mysterious world, religion and science, what an interesting take. Movies like this do not come out that often, especially when it’s visually stunning. Go watch it in 3D! By the way, Richard Parker is awesome. Everyone has a Richard Parker in their lives, a character that has to exist in order for you to strive and live on.
