Life of Pi
Pi is a teenage boy traveling from India to Canada with his family and his family's zoo animals, when the ship sinks, and Pi finds himself lost at sea in a lifeboat with only a Bengal tiger for company. Pi and the tiger reach a shaky detente during the year or more they spend at sea together. Strangely, I don't have that much to say about Life of Pi, although I didn't dislike it. I thought it was shot beautifully, and the CGI effects were very well done. I just sort of expected *more* - like, I thought there would be more to the story than there actually was. I can recognize Life of Pi as a quality film, but it just didn't blow me away. 7 out of 10.
