A Non-V Movie

Yesterday I went to see Life of Pi. I suppose given the tiger content it was predictable that I would. But I knew animals were going to come to grief, so I'd been resisting. I decided not to read the book for the same reasons.

But the pressure from others became too great, so when the opportunity arose, I took it.

Certainly some of the 3D special effects were staggering, but I found I got used to the 3d-ness fairly quickly, and the glasses, on top of my own, were quite uncomfortable and very heavy. I don't mind not seeing any more 3D films for a while!

On balance I enjoyed it, though. And the young actor playing Pi gave a real tour-de-force performance, completely carrying the movie. He should be getting all sorts of awards.

I avoid movies that make me cry. And I agree with you on the 3D glasses over regular glasses. Went to one last summer and the theatre was uncomfortably warm, so my glasses kept fogging up.

I think the man who directed it is nominated for an Oscar. I haven't seen it yet.

Back in the day, my parents had to carry me out of 'Born Free' in a state of near hysteria. I've steered clear of anything 'animal-i-fied' ever since, although there's the 'famous' occasion I went out to avoid seeing 'Lassie come home' on the TV, only to arrive at my friend's house to find her watching....yep...'Lassie come home'

Diane, I have NEVER been able to bring myself to watch Bambi. Or Watership Down. To name but two.
