LIFE OF PI
Because of the rave reviews from all the critics, I broke my longstanding rule of avoiding 3D movies. My error! Yes, the cinematography was brilliant -- and that's probably why I actually hated this film! I don't do well being violently storm-tossed and washed overboard again and again and again in the middle of a raging ocean. I was practically seasick! The acting was flawless. And the Tiger who shared the lifeboat with "Pi" was wonderful -- great use of, what is it called? "CGI" technology?) The problem with "The Life of Pi" was not the fault of the film; it was totally my own queasy stomach. My opinion on this is probably a minority of one. The friend with whom I saw "Pi" liked it a lot. So feel free to ignore my negative experience.
