‘Life of Pi’ an example of artsy done right

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

The closest comparisons to other works that comes to mind is what you might get if you combined elements of “Castaway” with “The Jungle Book.” There are times when I wish I could have actually seen it one more time on perhaps IMAX and with a bit of 3D, even if my brain might have melted into goo from the pure joy of the enhancement.

Again, I can see why this would be considered for the top motion picture, and hold no surprise if it came out on top in an upset, even if it has an uphill battle against a crowded field that includes wonders like “Les Miserables,” “Lincoln” and “Argo.” I highly recommend it for all ages with lessons to be learned for the young and a reminder of how spirituality can be obtained in everything around us for adults. As a result, I’d say “Life of Pi” has earned a final verdict of four and a half out of five storms.
