Life of Pi

My friends invited me to watch Life of Pi last night and this is my first movie of the year. And again here's another novel that I only get to learn about when a movie adaptation shows up. The novel  by Canadian writer Yann Martel actually got rejected by at least 5 publishing houses before its was published in September 2001.

So this movie, directed by Ang Lee, is about an Indian boy who  survived a shipwreck and had to share a lifeboat for 227 days with an adult male Bengal tiger.  The movie is actually a good watch. Despite the long at-sea scenes, amazing CG effects will certainly not bore you. You will marvel at the picturesque beauty of the ocean and the monstrosity of it during a thunderstorm.

Not only is this a movie about survival but also about one's philosophy on why he believes in God. So if you want to be inspired, go watch this movie!
