Life of Pi

Watching movies. Life of Pi had escaped my attention at the time. I don’t know why. The dvd went on sale last week so I bought it. I’ve already seen the movie twice. So beautiful. So touching. It made me cry.
As always, Mr. Bowie fell asleep watching the movie. Twice.

  1. Herman, you have a tender heart. I LOVED the movie! The cinematography was fabulous and the story even better. I though I was going to be bored when I went to the theatre but the opposite was true.

    • Hi Mary J. My first thought was, “A movie about a boy and a tiger on a lifeboat? Yeah right…” But I was blown away by the beauty of the story, and I liked the humor too.

  2. Definitely going to get the movie 🙂 Even though Bowie couldn’t get through it. have you seen The Namesake? Now there’s a movie that had me up all night sobbing (my grown son sobbing as well). It’s kind of long, but the characters sneak up and steal your heart.

    • Thank you for mentioning The Namesake, it was new for me. I checked it out on Imdb and going to see if I can find it on our local Movie Channel…

  3. I loved that movie! I’m reading the book now. Middlemay Farm mentioned The Namesake…I actually have that one and haven’t watched it…now I will!

  4. I didn’t make it past the shipwreck and crying, drowning animals. I left the theatre sobbing uncontrollably. I loved many of the images in the trailer, but….couldn’t do it.

      • I left Mr B there in the dark cinema :/ He did say that was the worst part, but it was too late. I was already going thru tissues like a sponge. I wandered thru a bookstore with bloodshot eyes instead….what a fun date night, LOL. I also missed the end of King Kong (with Naomi Watts), because I knew what was coming and started to leak….Mr B is used to it.

      • I’m with you on that one dear Mr Bowie. I would be more than happy to scratch behind your furry ears and watch Life of Pi for a third time. When ever I watch a move for the second or third time I always see something I have previously missed. Virginia

    • Hi there Ginnietom. Welcome on HoB and thanks for following. Much appreciated!

      You are right, animals in movies… it is always an emotive issue.

  5. Am I the only one who thought the movie wasn’t that great? 😮 Sure, the visuals are great and stuff, but the story, the boy Pi. I was headdesking the couch many, many times!
