Maybe I'm not very deep, but the movie was not that good. The story was not believable. The character was not that likable. I liked looking at the animals. I liked the parts where the animals went after him and the other animals. I liked the father's lesson that a tiger does not think like a person. The story should not have been told as a flashback. I wish I would have chosen another movie. Have NO IDEA why this was under any Oscar consideration, but then I liked "Armegedon."

I like it beautiful movie the end is still a religious film, the struggle in the storms of life, and how God rescues you from evil, a nice moral for those who do not know God and do not know who to believe

This is awful ! I really want to see this film, but when I got it home and put it in the DVD player...it says: "NOT FORMATTED FOR THIS REGION" !!?? I have watched hundreds of other New York Public Library films on this DVD player. But about a dozen have come up as "NOT FORMATTED" etc. !!?? Does anyone out there know what this means ? ... darn ! I really wanted to see this one. WHY is the New York Public Library buying sooo many DVD's that are "NOT FORMATTED" for the NYC area ? My branch had sent an inquery about this problem to 'Purchasing' several weeks ago, but there has still been no response (?). Has this happened to anyone else out there ?

There are things to like about this movie.Make a game out of finding those things while figuring out why you weren't shown the movie about the mom, the cook, etc. Recently a dude drank turtle blood and survived 13 months. Where was his Richard Dickenson (?) As far as faith goes, meh. Are we really going back to happy hallucinations beat real downers? That's what that jerk in the Matrix wanted too, and remember what happened to that jerk!

My husband and I both enjoyed this movie very much. The acting and the computer graphics were awesome. The "Special Feature Film" at the end of the movie was very interesting as it explained how the movie was made. This movie is highly recommended.

Meh. Yes, it's visually stunning, but it was about as compelling as the book - in other words, not at all. I really don't "get" how this story is supposed to make a person listening to it "believe in God". I love the spiritual in books and movies, and I tend to be very emotional and deeply engage with things I'm watching or reading when they're well done. Life of Pi has never sucked me in, on the page or on the screen. I truly don't get what all the fuss is about.

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: "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..."
