5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, memorable and profound, 16 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Life of Pi (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
Any film that finds me - a fully grown man, with a tear in his eye, has to be something special. This is quite simply a wonderful film that can be enjoyed on many levels - as a rattling good adventure, a spiritual allegory or even a philosophical study. There are many themes explored here, including the belief in many paths to God, truth and consequences, finding your path in life and the importance of given names (just loved the way the hero is given the "irrational" name, whilst the tiger has the seemingly mundane, but curiously coincidental name - just go Google it! In terms of profound and life-affirming messages, this fable rang faint echoes of The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream, but I found Life of Pi a far more satisfying experience overall.

Blu-ray HD presentation is superb, including some of the most vivid colours and startling images since The Fall [Blu-ray]. The CGI, most notably for Richard Parker, is stunning. I was discussing the film with a colleague of mine and, quite innocently, he remarked on how well the tiger had been trained! Excellent use of surround sound too.

Overall, a marvellous film that should appeal to a wide audience. Oh and it's a wonderful advert for buying a 3D TV too!
