I've always been a big fan of Life of Pi, but when I heard they were making a film of it I was highly skeptical. Consequently I didn't rush to see it when it came out, but I was dragged along yesterday.
And it was good. Full credit to Ang Lee, for stunning cinematography, but also for not ducking the rather difficult structure of the book and Disneying it up. I think this is probably the best film adaption of literature I have seen. And if you need another reason to go and see it, I think this is also the only film I have seen where the 3D didn't suck (and give me a headache) (with the possible exception of Avatar?).
So go and see Life of Pi - it doesn't suck.
