I wasn't sure I would like this movie, thinking it might be kind of slow. I haven't read the book, and have only seen trailer ads on TV. But, I never got bored. I was riveted. The director did an incredible job filming the animals and the ocean scenes. Fantastic cinematography. I wouldn't say this is on my all time favorites list, but I would highly recommend.

I liked this movie. I haven't read the book. But I'm going to guess the book is better then the movie as it usually is.

It's Robinson Cruso on the ocean with a twist. Very beautiful cinematography and the special features helped you to appreicate it more. (the monkey was CGI!) A thoughtful movie that takes its time. The ending was awesome, but I don't know if the wait was worth it.
P.S. I am extremly happy no one spoiled the ending, otherwise it would have been a major waste of time. Thanks to all of you who kept your fat mouth shut and I will do the same!

kevfarley:I think DVDs are recorded in two formats: PAL and NTSC? Some older DVD players are unable to play both formats or you need to select one. My information may, of course, be out of date.

Review:

http://theotherjose.tumblr.com/post/58397869084/movie-of-the-week-1

I remember being at the movie theater and an old man randomly started talking to me about this movie in the bathroom. He told me that it was a good movie and that the end can make people get lost. I had no idea what he meant until i watched the movie for myself. I kid you not, I watched this movie about 7 times after first watching it so I can get lost in the end. The old man in the bathroom knew what he was talking about, this movie can make you get lost and the visual effects in the movie were amazing. I love animals and survival shows interest me, so this movie was no different.

It is really sad i wouldn't watch it again. Scary too1

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Animals act as animals do. Tigers that can kill may kill. Hyenas that can attack may attack. Survival of the fittest does occur to some extent. Other events at sea can be considered violent and frightening.

From book on God & hope (2 of 2):
At such moments I tried to elevate myself. I would touch the turban I had made with the remnants of my shirt and I would say aloud, “This is God’s hat!”

I would pat my pants and say aloud, “This is God’s attire!” I would point to Richard Parker and say aloud, “This is God’s cat!”

I would point to the lifeboat and say aloud, “This is God’s ark!”

I would spread my hands wide and say aloud, “These are God’s wide acres!”

I would point at the sky and say aloud, “This is God’s ear!”

And in this way I would remind myself of creation and of my place in it.

From book on God & hope (1 of 2):
I practised religious rituals that I adapted to the circumstances—solitary Masses without priests or consecrated Communion hosts, darshans without murtis, and pujas with turtle meat for prasad, acts of devotion to Allah not knowing where Mecca was and getting my Arabic wrong. They brought me comfort, that is certain. But it was hard, oh, it was hard. Faith in God is an opening up, a letting go, a deep trust, a free act of love—but sometimes it was so hard to love. Sometimes my heart was sinking so fast with anger, desolation and weariness, I was afraid it would sink to the very bottom of the Pacific and I would not be able to lift it back up.

Adult Pi Patel (who's just finished silently praying before his meal): "Amen. Yeah, let's eat." The Writer: "I didn't know Hindus said 'amen'." Pi Patel: "Catholic Hindus do." The Writer: "Catholic Hindus?" Pi Patel: "We get to feel guilty before hundreds of gods, instead of just one."

Pi Patel (on the lifeboat with a hyena, and a zebra; greeting Orange Juice the orangutan, who's floated over to the lifeboat on a bunch of bananas): "Welcome to Pi's Ark."

Adult Pi Patel: "You know, I've left so much behind: my family; the zoo; India; Anandi... I suppose, in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go. But what always hurts the most... is, not taking a moment to say goodbye... I was never able to thank my father for all I've learned from him... To tell him, without his lessons... I would never have survived..."
