We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

I just saw Life of Pi, directed by Ang Lee. i saw it in 3D because there was no other option at the movie theater where I saw it. I'm not a fan of 3D, since it may actually seem fake, faker than a flat image that our brains anyway translate into 3D. We always see the world in three dimensions, I think. It's how our brains translates the visual world for us. But I digress. The movie was actually very enjoyable in 3D, so see it in 3D if you can. The movie creates an enchanted atmosphere which is neither real, nor completely unreal. I had enjoyed the book very much because the writer managed to induce you to suspend disbelief and just enjoy a good story. The movie does the same.

To those who have read the book or seen the movie, don't spoil the ending for the rest.

The story is about a teenager who grew up in a zoo in Pondicherry (India). When his family decides to move to Canada with all the zoo animals, the ship sinks. He survives the shipwreck in the company of a tiger named Richard Parker. This is not a Disney movie. The tiger is actually a tiger, a predator intent on survival, not a tame cute kitten. The animals are not anthropomorphized.

The protagonist is a god-botherer, but in a strange way: he loves all religions even though the religion of his birth is Hinduism. Our protagonists loves good stories. His father is a rationalist and lets his son know that science tells us how the world works, not religion.
Do not be bothered by the God talk in the movie: in the end, I think you'll like the message.

The special effects are excellent; the tiger is actually computer animated but if I hadn't read that, most of the time i would have thought it was an actual tiger. The actors are very likable and perfectly fit for the roles. Go watch the movie, it is very entertaining, it's a good story well told. And there are animals! Many great animals. What's not to like?
